“Admit it. You …

10 Mar

“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the “normal people” as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like “Have a nice day” and “Weather’s awful today, eh?”, you yearn inside to say forbidden things like “Tell me something that makes you cry” or “What do you think deja vu is for?”. Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others…”
― Timothy Leary.

I suppose I’ve felt isolation in my 24 years. But the more isolated one is the more they start grasping who they are. The life’s purpose if you will . Are we here to exist?Meandering through our comfortable day to dayness, acknowledging that there’s something not quite right with our seemingly perfect lives. We let things distract us. Literal things. Possessions. Ownership. People. We outlet into others and forget that real happiness and energy emerge from within us. At our core lies all wisdom, all knowledge, all future purpose.

So I realised all this from isolation. And I love my journey all the more. I feel sanctified and whole.
Anyone who has seen Into The Wild, will know that Chris McCandless’ profound and final realisation was: Happiness is shared.
Walk the solitary path but forget not the noble souls that walk in front and behind you. Stop and converse and reach them for they are ever in talking distance from you
