Giving up has it’s rewards. Don’t let the positive thinking people deceive you in to thinking you can think your way to ‘positivism.’ The truth is more complicated, more visceral…and different for each and every one of us.
When you drift downstream, forgoing effort, you become calm, you lay on your back and look upward as the sky drifts by, knowing full well the waterfall is coming, but not worrying about it because it’s not something you can change anyway. Let it be. Let it flow. Let it go.
Don’t let them tell you we make our own decisions. We are driven by external forces outside our own control, causing us to make decisions to mold ourselves to that reality. The evolution of consciousness isn’t complete and we are stuck in a transitional state between control and controlling. It’s always more complicated than what you think…because what you think is affected by so much else.
Giving up has it’s rewards. You flow, you drift, you find peace, you live in the present.
