Life is not a love story, but it is a story about love

Life is not a love story. But it is a story about love, and the power it has over us. The power to heal or destroy. And this is where the story begins...

The Soccer World Cup is going on, people are excited but from 32 nations competing there only one nation will celebrate on the end. All others, eventually, at one point of time, will be disappointed, sad and displeased because their guys have failed to fulfill theirs hopes and expectations.

And this is what life is all about - hopes and expectations and on the end, disappointment. You spend a great deal of effort maintaining the illusion of your life. You work very hard to make it as solid as possible and never venture too close to the meaning of it. Otherwise you would see right through it and find yourself looking into a mirage. Then you may see your life for what it really is... the great lie.

You work very hard to maintain your hopes and expectations. You take it so seriously, you get counseling, take some medications, go to the movie, drink wine and talk about soccer and other high things or you may go to shopping spree...

In an insane world, being "normal self" means you have to be insane. 

There are so many contradiction in this world, just like this world cup, that it’s easy to be caught up by one. And why are you doing all this, why are you following the crowd? Yup, to avoid those waves of sadness, emptiness, meaninglessness, alienation and anxiety.

You may awake, for a brief moment, from this daily life's slumber and look around and wonder what you’re doing here. You may suddenly stop feeling connection to anything. You may see that nothing can give you any pleasure, there is nothing to strive for, nothing you can get or experience to fix it.

Unfortunately, the pointlessness of your basic existence is so obvious.

When that happens, the world can become a really confusing place. So where is the problem? Why this depression?

Your problems come from your idea that the world is true. 

You assume that if the world is true then you are also true. This self-importance is the main reason for the feelings of depression, sadness, emptiness and anxiety.

There is nothing true in this world.

I am not a Buddhist but the impermanence is only permanent "thing" here. The meaning of everything is the meaning you give it. You are who you say you are, and your experience is what you say it is. Words. Growing, moving, progressing, evolving. Heart, Love, Peace, Bliss. Be nice and say you're sorry when you done wrong so your loving God won't cook your ass. You may hope for millions of dollars, large house, wonderful car, beautiful suit, or perfect partner, romantic love or transcendental bliss, cosmic consciousness, kundalini awakening... whatever.

Take it easy!

Slowdown and stop running after all these nonsense! Embrace nothingness and enjoy your own meaninglessness. One day you will be forced to stop, the sun will go off and the mirage will go off. Don't say that you were unlucky, you did not reached the water... well, the water was never there.

In the mean time, until you realize this, try to enjoy the performance.

No, life is not a love story. But it is a story about love. About those who give in to it, and the price they pay. And this is where the story ends.
