All relationships are long-distance relationships, no matter how physically close two people are. Two people may live very close, they can still feel the distant even when they’re on a date, even when they physically meet each other every day. Even when two people live in the same house after marriage, they can still create the huge distance between as if they’re thousands of miles away from each other.
The Earth is getting warmer because she’s having a fever, to kill all the “bacteria” and “viruses” that are killing her. Those invading parasites spread out very quickly, consume the whole body, and even transfer to another body once there’s contact and possibility.
We cannot and should not grow everywhere and everything at the same time. Focus on one aspect is the key!
In my utmost belief, any psychological abnormality is only due to the lack of connection. Yet, many institutions and doctors are addressing it as a disease and treating it without reconnecting the patient with himself and with those around him.
We must destruct, keep only the most inner core, and nurture that core during a painful process of self-suffering – alone even – while no one else could see or hear or help, then we can bloom to be the free butterfly. Life is suffering. To live fully is to be worthy of such suffering.
Help others all you want, but remember to call for help and accept others’ help too. The circle of kindness can only then be completed.
Traveling through a sea storm requires the captain to throw away all the heavy load which is not essential, and only keep the most important things: the crew and food. Similarly, no one could climb to the highest mountain with a suitcase and a trunk, but only the small backpack. Success doesn’t just mean perseverance. It also means to give up. Know when to give up. What to let go.
