…Is temporary gratification for the uninitiated seeker of self realisation.
It’s the first reflex. The first instinct.
A nagging feeling of not ‘fitting in.’ And a realisation that you never ever.. Will.
It’s elusive and misleading.
‘Escape’ isn’t real.
Just a distorted reality of a convenient inability to reconcile with the truth that…
True progress is made, moving deeper and deeper into oneself.
Everything outside, is, was and shall remain..transient.
Everything inside, began dying the moment you were born.
Between the two… rests the undying, uncontained, uncorrupted fragment of life…
Silently watching your shenanigans in amusement.
