Why is it so often we find ourselves lost?

Our journey involves a series of mantras we believe as true, we shout from the rooftops, we repeat them under our breath… until they no longer work. We find ourselves so set on what the world is and how to conquer it. Constantly reminding ourselves of the same goal – only to get there are rethink everything we thought as fact.

How do we navigate a path that we don’t fully understand, a path that continues to evolve around us?

We are silly aren’t we?

Trying to determine the truth, facts, way of life that is “right”. Only to realize there is no “right”. There are only events and reactions. Our world is never to be “figured” out.

We are destined to be guessing up until the very end.

As kids we thought adults knew all the answers, they had figured out how to navigate this world.

What a silly thought, no one understands this world.

We aren’t meant to, we experience things that seem to be above the laws of physics. We can achieve things that are set to be impossible. We can be destroyed, flattened and heartbroken to our very core.

We have the ability to experience the full spectrum of life – often without any reasoning in sight. So we throw our hands up at the sky and look for some answer, all we strive for is understanding.

Sometimes… most times, there is none.

There are no set answers, no finite mantras that we must chant. As we evolve the world evolves around us. As we learn more, we discover more questions. As we challenge our own concept of reality, our reality adapts with us.

We are blessed to experience the fullness of life and yet destined to always be a step behind its complexities.
