A friend of mine writes:
“[…] I used to be so much more into it when I was younger.
Life seemed much more full of adventures and possibilities.
Now I feel like an adult, there’s nothing to explore.”
Fortunately for him, with me as a friend, words of consolation are never far away:
Jup. And it won’t be long before you realize that not only is there nothing new under the sun, but that the number of things you are able to do (let alone enjoy) is actually decreasing – day by day.
Until one day, the only things left to explore are the sensations of your breath, the empty wall of a hospital room, the feeling of having a stick in your dick, and the nightmarish confusion that arises when you don’t know who you are and why you’re so alone.
Yet another reason to meditate: You gotta learn to take joy in the simple things.
