It’s not my story anymore: whenever I speak about the past now, I feel as if I were talking about something that has nothing to do with me. All that remains in the present are the voice, the presence, and the importance of fulfilling my mission. I don’t regret difficulties I experienced; I think they helped me to become the person I am today, I feel the way a warrior must feel after years of training; he doesn’t remember the details of everything he learned, but he knows how to strike when the time is right.” ~ The Zahir
The quote describes my current state of mind beautifully. I can’t describe it better but would like to add a few more lines to it to complete the depiction.
There is inner peace, and with that, just adjacent to it, is focused energy. I am still, I am moving. At the same time. In the same breath.
There is an overflowing gratefulness, and with that, just adjacent to it limitless desire. I am fulfilled, I crave for more. At the same time. In the same breath.
There is love, and with that, just adjacent to it, is endless want. I love, I long for more. At the same time. In the same breath.
