A day of lethargy, confusion, cowardice and experiences which emphasised my own incompetence.
Failing a past paper for HSC, falling asleep on the couch whilst reading my prescribed text, being different around my parents... I’m sorry Lord.
I escaped all that though with meditation.
I’m looking around my room right now. The lights, the cupboards, the bed, the checkered quilt. All of it. And I can’t help but smile at the joy that surrounds me, surrounds all of us. I’ve been quite lazy the past few weeks. Quite lost, wandering around our distraction-ridden world, trying to find myself, who am I, what I need to do. I created convoluted methods of trying to find joy, peace and freedom in my life. No longer. Because I’ve found the answer. Well, really, the answer has been lying in front of my eyes, permeating them, and all my senses in fact.
Joy, peace and freedom can be found in everything.
If we just live in the present.
Thank you meditation, the most underrated exercise out there :)
