I closed my eyes. I flew. Into another place. Where hatred, jealousy, spite, malice and anger did not exist. Where it was peaceful. Where around me was a thirst for things that mattered; things such as knowledge, honesty and true love.
The cocoon that had opened showed me a new place — where I had turned into a butterfly too! Where people did not smile just because it was politically the right thing to do, and they smiled from within because they wanted to. Where the world wasn’t like a merciless clockwork, and people actually did the things they cared about.
Where people didn’t judge you. Where people were kind, just kind because they were internally nice, and not because they had to be or else.
A place where you could be happy and not worry. You know that nagging feeling when you’re happy and another corner of your brain is worrying? None of that. Happy. Period.
How? Where? Did I get there? Can I stay there?
Yes. The answer to all that is yes.
Let go. Of every thing, of every fear, of every negativity. Just wash it off, everything that clouds and dirties your brain. Purity. In the heart and the mind. And you’ll be surprised at how clean the world looks. It’s your eyes isn’t it? They were caked with grime, and everything you saw was far murkier in your vision than it was for real. Let go.
The grime can leave. It can leave as soon as it begins to accumulate again. I’m flying. I’ve taken flight.
