Contemplation – Day 33

While everyone in this World strives to get somewhere and become someone, only to leave it all behind after death, you aim for the highest stage of nothingness. Live this life as light and empty as the number zero. We are no different from a pot. It is not the decorations outside, but the emptiness inside that holds us straight. Just like that, it is not what we aspire to achieve but the consciousness of nothingness that keeps us going.

I release self-pity by changing the stories I tell about my life.

It took me a long time to understand that as I relieve myself of all the expectations that my family and my culture have placed on me, I start knowing who I am. In the ‘I am’ there are no roles and it is rather freeing. I have no one to please with being ‘some way’ other than being me. Being ’empty’ in my understanding is being free to be me.
