"As long as you're trying to make progress, you will go up. But up always implies down. So while you're trying to get better & better, that means when you get to the best, you can only go on to the worst. So you go round & round, ever chasing that illusion that there is something outside of yourself, outaide the here & now, to be attained that will make things better. And the thing is to recover from this illusion.
Wake up. Running around in this thing can be fun and good, but you will not get anything out of it." I don't know if I agree with the first part, but the 2nd is so my truth as well! Everything moves in circles: the planets, nature on Earth, ppl do the same things over and over, but everytime it's different.
How to get off this rat race? Be here, see everything happen but don't be a part of it. I've been watching my thoughts & behaviour and I see patterns. I repeat but now this repetition is being watched, observed. I allow it to be as it is. If it's ok with mySelf I might do it again. When it doesn't feel good I might not do it again. But then again, who knows what will happen in the future? After autumm winter always comes ❤
