Living in a Perfect World: A Voice From the Inside! Enlightenment!
From the blog, Living in a Perfect World
“What is real? What is a dream? And what, my friends, is the difference?””
When I was growing up, the passing moments of my life seemed so trivial. They seemed to be so unimportant and as a result, I never paid much attention to the changes that I imposed upon the world around me– the world that sustained me. The world that I would one day help destroy.
Now with my world so utterly erased from existence by my own hand, I am forced to live in someone else’s world. I am forced to live someone else’s lies. I am forced to follow someone else’s rules and there is no one to blame for this current state of affairs except myself.
So with a lot of this established, I guess the only remaining question would be, “what now?” Do I rebel or do I make the best of what I have? I struggle to ask myself that question every day. I struggle to ask it so that I will never forget what is at stake. Things like my sanity, my freedom, and my true place in this jigsaw puzzle called life.
I have realized that I can no longer live in the wake of my past mistakesThat life that has passed is no longer viable. It is no more tangible than the dreamscape plot of a Sunday afternoon nap. In opposition, I have recognized I can no longer feed upon daydreams of a future that has yet to be written.
What has happened is gone and what will be will be. The only truth left is now. Here in this moment, I can find freedom, Here in this moment, I can let go of the prejudice that keeps me frozen still in a world of constant change. Here and now life’s imperfect beauty is pure. Here is where we realize that perfection lies in our ability to understand that it doesn’t exist. Now is when we finally see that our flaws are our greatest source of hope, and to see and realize those two truths is the very basis of a spiritual life. In fact, I would call it enlightenment.
What’s your “perfect world”?
