How distant can we be from our physical existence, until we realize we are too far to come back?
Humans stay here. Humans eat, bathe, pluck their eyebrows, feed the cat, clean the house, laugh, gossip, enjoy the sunset, make people angry in traffic, breathe.
Extraordinary humans go there. They think ahead, predict, envision. They are conscious of change. They understand the game. And they want to leave the world a happier place than when they arrived. But extraordinary humans can only start somewhere: here.
Only the right conditions can create these extraordinary humans. And that poses a problem. The system is not giving us the conditions we need to grow extraordinarily. And that can be as simple as having time to enjoy breakfast.
Why do we get jealous when someone goes on holiday? Falls in love? Creates a successful company? Why can’t we all have a dream job, fall in love and feel on vacations everyday? Shouldn’t we create a dream reality, rather than trying to escape from it?
The modern human is lost in transaction between the here and there. And that’s no place to be. We work for there and don’t have time to be here. We spend our time desiring, thinking, planning and predicting an unhealthy future inside our boring, confined boxes. We create unhealthy lifestyles. Unhealthy desires. Lives that make us sick. And it doesn’t have to be that way.
Most of us can be trained to be extraordinary. To enjoy the now. To be confident. To be loved. To be awesome. But we need conditions for that. We need truth. Not illusions that please our senses. Because if there is one thing you cannot do, society, is fool our soul.
So the only solution is to stay. To stay in an awesome reality. To stay “here”. Not dreaming about tomorrow, or remembering about yesterday. Simply enjoying life, right now. The most here that we can possibly be, because here can only happen now. And so does happiness.
