Within or Without
In a fast paced world that demands so much impulse and external attention, it’s easy to forget that introspection is key to making sense of our experiences. In our daydreams, experiences become wisdom.
We Think Alike
When we carefully study someone’s expression, do we mimic it? If we do, can we feel what they feel? Do their experiences and understanding become ours?
How often do you wish for things that are rare yet perfectly attainable, or scenarios that are extraordinary yet totally possible? Wishing is the first step to making dreams reality. What’s the second?
This is the moment before everything makes sense. Aha! The restraints of what is, are about to give way to the vision of what could be.
When anything goes, and you’re free to do whatever you want, do you seek guidance more than ever? Feelings of longing are a valuable source of direction. We already know the answers if we listen to ourselves.
A moment lost in thought is a place to find peace. Time stands still, and the pull of future plans and past concerns are in balance.
Persistent discontentment might be the price humans pay for self awareness, but can we be wistful and grateful at the same time? Imagining an ideal world, or a better life, doesn’t mean we don’t know we’re lucky.
