We are cowards!

Image

We are afraid to live the way we want to.
We are afraid to live in accordance with our beliefs and ideals.
We are afraid to follow our desires.
We are afraid to pursue our dreams.
We are afraid to trust our hearts and our passions.
We are afraid to perish in the turmoil of life.
We are afraid to die for the sake of our happiness.
We are afraid that we will be judged as mad, selfish and egotistic.
We are afraid of nature, gods and people.
We are afraid of rules, laws and regulations.
We are afraid of punishment and condemnation.
We are afraid of views and opinions, conventions and religions.
We are afraid to be insignificant and poor.
We are afraid to be left alone and forgotten.
We are afraid to be different and inconsistent.
We are afraid to risk everything we have for something we believe in.
We are afraid to try and to fail.
We are afraid to alter the course of our fate.
We are afraid to take destiny into our hands.
We are afraid to change.
We are afraid to be free.
We are afraid to be ourselves.
We are cowards.
We are cowards that cannot untie ourselves from society.

You have practiced Yoga, Zen and Jujitsu. You have read the whole encyclopedia Britannica twice. Yet all this of no avail. You have been on a vegetarian diet for years, you have sat on the psychoanalyst’s couch even longer and taken doctors’ prescriptions since you were seven. And yet zero success. You still feel the same. You still feel bad about yourself. Life sucks. At least that’s what you say to yourself. Even though you have so much, it feels like you have nothing. Even though you have accomplished quite a bit in a short amount of time, it feels like you have done nothing. You feel like a nobody. And this feeling is what matters to you the most. It colors your perception of the world. You cannot shake it off or get rid of it. It is simply there. In you. You are it. You feel it at all times. Wherever you go, it follows you like a shadow. It seems like there’s no escape. You are trapped inside a cage of your own making.  Continue reading
