“Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be obtained only by someone who is detached. ”
― Simone Weil
I made a realisation this morning.
My sometimes negative thoughts about my working situation (the fact that I have to work……for the time being), only arise when I have become attached to my life and my time, trying to control it as I think it should be controlled. However, when I relax and realise that I cannot control anything, it is much more digest-able to be in my working environment. I realise that my vision of my ideal life is something positive to aim for, but it must come about in its own good time. There is a mandatory gestation period for any vision to come to fruition. And although I always feel I could be doing better, the acceptance of this truth allows me to relax and re-enjoy the moment exactly as it is. As long as I know deep in my heart I am doing all I can in this moment, I can let-go my frustrations about how I feel my life “should” be, and accept how it truly is in the present.
My vision will come. For now, I wait in gratitude.
