“Dies never having lived.” We do this. Die never having lived. So what does it take to live? When I watch those who live simple, yet amazing, lives I realize that becoming aware of the craziness and its infinite loops and draws is the first step to success. Awareness. Begin with awareness. Awareness of the craziness. Awareness of why we do what we do.
What crazy ideas, hopes, dreams, fears, wants, guilt drives us to be crazy? This awareness gives us a broad angle view of our life’s landscape. Oh!, the heart says, this is what my life on a landscape looks like. Hmm… Each of us has to stare at the landscape intently and over extended periods of time if we are to catch us thinking crazy and acting crazy. At the root of all religions, at the root of spirituality lies this plea to humanity to drop the craziness to start our journey of true well-being.
