Why the same things that make our lives great are the ones that can make it miserable? Family, love, kids, music, poetry, alcohol, drugs, job, money, therapy, power, chocolate, burgers and many others. Sometimes we look our selves in the mirror and we like what we see but in just a moment it can all turn around and we can realize it’s all wrong. The nurturing of our minds is a matter of survival. It may sound stupid but they can turn against us and ruin everything. The great daddy can become a boring old looser, love can be questioned, your children can turn against you, poetry can sound depressing and so on. You can be positive or negative about almost anything and any subject. A friend of mine told me today the first moment she had a panic attack in her life. She was at her house just wondering about stuff when she decided to look herself at the mirror. She realized she was older but she did look great. Everything in place and still hot. Her eyes were really beautifully colored like an emerald. Somewhere in her mind she realized her mind was trapped in the back of her eyes. She could not see but through her own eyes. That’s all she needed at that moment. It took six years of Lexapro and Xanax to put her back on track. So i think that at the same time you need many things to make you feel good you need only your mind. It’s like we focus our happiness on stuff just as we believe a rabbit’s foot can give us luck. The reality though is that we don’t need anything because we produce our passions inside our guts and there’s nothing that can persuade us agains’t it if we decide it so. So is true that the best things in life are for free. You can have all the stuff that you want and be miserable about it or maybe lucky and happy about it. You can be a godess and feel horrible or great. You can have nothing and feel free or stuck. Those are tricks from our minds to remember us the really important things. To show us if the decisions are right or wrong. To define us. And there’s no material possession that can fill this hole. You can keep buying and receiving and wining and gaining but you will not find your answer there. Your answer is inside you. It is you.
