Sometimes witnessing everyone else’s passion for taking life right to the edge and feeling everything to the deepest cell of their being is just exhausting.
If people insist that without such passion life is nothing…
If people insist that you must do for others, acknowledge injustice, fight and rage and push and be relentless until things change…
You have a right to disagree.
It does not mean you are “less Enlightened” than they are.
It does not mean you are heartless…cruel…uncaring…cold.
And it doesn’t mean you are content with the way things are.
It means that humans can take just so much before they grow numb.
There are times when just getting up is good.
There are times when the small things you’ve accomplished are enough.
There are times when you need to step away from all the mad doing and just accept being — quietly, peacefully, without judgment on yourself or your need for silence and stillness.
When you need those days, those hours, those moments — take them. Without apology.
