Why is silence important to the yogi life?

Actually, it’s the Yogi life that’s important to silence. Because Silence is everywhere. But the yogi life gives us the opportunity to truly start listening to it, thoroughly, uninterruptedly. Aum. Aum. Aum.

yin yanging the shit out of this unbalanced world.

Throughout my life I have been using the term common sense as a measurement to consider why something is right or wrong. Take McDonald’s; common sense would be to tax them more heavily for selling food that is both addictive and harmful to people. Or the 9 -to-5 life. Common sense would be to allow people to be outdoors throughout the day. Instead, most of us stare at a screen 8 hours straight, which disassociates us from life itself, eventually making us feel disconnected and depressed.

But most people have a problem understanding common sense, and to my simply enquiry most bluntly reply, “well, what’s common sense for you might not be for someone else. McDonald’s doesn’t make you buy their shitty burgers – you only get them if you want to; and companies pay you to sit there for 8 hours. You should be happy.”

Well but I’m not. And we, as people, shouldn’t feel guilty for feeling shitty. That’s just what it is, and it just means something’s not right. That’s called common sense.

This makes me conclude that common sense is a truth that benefits everyone. People’s real interest is to be healthy and happy, while companies’ real interest is in making profit. I’m sure we can please both sides of the equation by yin yanging the shit out of this unbalanced world. A truth where all grounds can thrive equally and indistinguishably. A truth that pushes greed and fear aside so we can realise that what we all have in common is the exactly the same. That’s common sense.

Drama!

By creating drama, you’re finding a temporary purpose for your life. Suddenly, you have someone to listen to, changes to make, or simply put, problems to solve. But the drama will not last, and soon you’ll find yourself without a purpose again. So you create more drama. In your head, or out of it. I’m the kind of person that creates in both.

After drama happens, you feel strangely better – everything is in place, and now everything makes sense. But not for long.

Finding purpose in life is a duty we should all engage in. Because otherwise, we’re only going to create problems that are really not the battles we want to fight for. Things will not get out of control if you let go of control. Surprisingly enough, your life will start flowing more easily and people will start respecting you for who you are and helping you find your real purpose. There is no need to hold on for dear life.

Let go of drama. Problems do not define you. What defines you is hidden beneath them.
