detaching

7 07 2007

being alone – aaahh.. a good thing, a good thing. right now, i’m listening to breathe by pink floyd. beautiful little piece of anthology. so i was saying… yes. alone. but no lonely. it’s like when you’ve forgotten about the freshness of something new that feels good, and you thought it couldn’t feel good anymore. tonight, as i came back home, in a glimpse i saw how great the apartment in which i live is. this feeling i had at first, the first few days. it didn’t last long, other concerns came into the picture. you know, work, money, everyday life. soon i had forgotten about the charm of this place, and what could be done with it, when giving it proper attention. this tonight i rediscovered. it felt like freshness through my mind. pure hapiness, coming from within, from the mind. and so finally i understand this hapiness thing is no other than the way you let yourself look at things. it could never come from the outside, however beautiful or amazing the outside is. your intention and awareness will do it all for you. and so, alone, yes, and quite happy with that. the old beliefs that love and romance are treasures, well, quite frankly, that’s passé. it’s just too complicated. encounters count, and friendships last over time and distance, romances most often break leaving you tired or wrecked, however genius they were at first, and oh, oh so enchanting. like fairy tales. better even. true. indescriptible. pure feel. but don’t go looking for it. it is untamable. it would rather have you slepless at 4 in the morning, obsessed and powerless. and so i am detached because, at last, centered.

…was i lying to myself all these years?..?…

Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.

-breathe, pink floyd
