looking at a wrong direction

looking at a wrong direction

It is very funny actually. We all want to be happy but we are not so good at training to make ourselves happy, this is always an intriguing part of the human – well intriguing for us but for the sublime being it is not intriguing because we are looking at a wrong direction, we are not seeing the truth. You know as we were speaking earlier, you are looking at completely, something completely futile, completely – like a, we are, our life, this body that we have, you and I have, it is really barely hanging together. Barely, even more fragile than the dew drop on the grass. Just barely hanging there, any moment it is going to drop. Any moment. And looking at that, thinking that it is going to go on for some time. That’s, you are asking for a trouble. Something is going to go wrong with this kind of attitude, with this kind of mind. Looking at this – this is truth by the way, this is not whining of a middle age crisis, a person who is going through a middle age crisis. This is the truth. You young people, don’t think that you are young and you will not die. You will. Most probably you will die first. From the way you behave these days, most probably.
