There is bread in the oven, fresh, steaming, and so satisfying to tear into.
Four ingredients: water, flour, salt, and yeast.
It’s so simple…
Four everyday ingredients and yet so many people screw it up.
Pizza dough, the same four ingredients….
And so many terrible pizzas in the world…
It’s so simple…
What of your life?
Do I dare say it is so, so simple, yet you screw it up all the time.
Isn’t it so.
The toast is burnt, the bread is dry, the pizza flavourless, a salty tear from your eye.
Four ingredients: water, food, sleep and breath…
It’s simple isn’t it.
But we are humans.
It’s our nature to create, to play, to experiment, to cause mischief in our own lives, to burn the toast by ‘accident’.
It’s fun, it happens, it’s life.
It is fun, except when it isn’t and it often isn’t, even when it is.
That last part gets us in trouble, “even when it is,” as we begin to believe that life is primarily heavy, torturous, a true terror to behold…
Work, struggle, stress and fear, keep pushing the rocks up the hill, today and tomorrow do the same, because if you aren’t in pain then you are clearly insane.
“Everyone is suffering, so you should too. If I have to suffer, so shall you. I know you think you are better than me, well I’m better than you and now you will suffer my judgments too.”
And you do.
You take them on as if they’re your own, the judgments of others; you carry their fiery stones.
“Drop it! Let it go! Your hands are burning”, they scream, “let it go, this is not a dream”.
“Oh precious one, are you searing your spirit with the words of another, with the thoughts that you believe to be true, thoughts that sting your being as their lies run you through?”
You are a precious one; your ‘life’, which is you, is precious; you have been given the gift of existence.
I know you already know all of that, all that has been shared here.
Nonetheless, life compels me to share with you, as I do.
It reminds me of that poem, you know the words:
“You shot your arrow, into the sky,
You laid upon the earth knowing,
the arrow, also came to die.”
Here’s to being thought insane in a world that thinks it isn’t,
Perhaps, today is a good day to respect the four lovers: sleep, water, food and your glorious beautiful body breathing as it so wonderfully knows how to do.
Everything else is important too and we will talk about that soon, because I have something for you.
