Being empty of oneself is to be full of the intelligence of life which can then come to us without hindrance. – Nicole Montineri
It’s 9: 58 PM on day 182 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself bun and jam for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no luck – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, tweet about my campaign some more – still no luck – listen to Bollywood music, feed myself Chapati – an unleavened flatbread – and Kadala Curry – made of brown chickpeas – for dinner and watch TV.
Today as I was listening to music feeling content within myself it occurred to me that I made people uncomfortable because I was happy in spite of the fact that I didn’t have any labels attached to me. Are you trying so hard to hold onto ‘yourself’ that you’re inadvertently blocking life’s intelligence?
