It's so easy to feel trapped,
Trapped in your own head, your town, your way of life, the place you currently stand.
Bound by a past and tethered to the future.
You fill your brain full of questions and hopes and dreams.
Without ever really considering, maybe you could have it all.
Reality is often morphed into times and faces, you feel bound to the ground beneath your feet.
More and more, we always want more.
The clock ticks, the bell rings, the minutes evaporate into the air and I find myself asking:
Why are we still waiting for the glass to be full?
Tormented by words that ring in our heads, from strangers that mean nothing more that a hello and a goodbye.
What happened to connection?
Anxious for the future and depressed about the past,
We constantly torment ourselves out of reality.
Out of now.
What happens when you just release?
When you actually connect with THIS.
Whatever THIS is to you.
This moment you are in.
Right this very second.
This is what is real.
This is all we have.
