Today, as I walked my dogs by the bay and watched the birds flying by the water, I was taken over by the feeling we are all connected.
I was connected to my dogs, to the fish swimming and the birds flying by. I looked up at the sky and felt the immensity of the universe growing inside of me.
It got me thinking I would like to be, even if a little tiny bit, like Gandhi. Of course, compared to Gandhi I am a little ameba in this path of enlightenment, but I would like to attain the courage to drop the mask of cynicism that has become necessary, or at least I think, to survive in the world.
Truth is that "playing the game" has hurt me. It made me a person I sometimes don't recognize in the mirror. I've been so preoccupied with pleasing that I lost myself in the way.
I am searching for the way back. I took a little detour, but I want to return home.
