Of the many lies we were sold as kids (and upon growing up), this one always triumphs:
Something is better than nothing.
Selling a part of your soul is better than your soul making no money.
Except that when we are empty, we feel our truest emotions.
It is in solitude and standing for what we want, that we discover what we would never tolerate.
It is in the side-tracked lines of rat-race with the world that we discover we were not in a race with them in the first place!
And that’s not bad. That’s liberating.
When we are busy with “something”, we never get the nothingness to be lost.
When we are tired of “nothing”, we discover who we truly are.
