Hello 2018

2017 had been such a transformative year for me. Most growth I've experienced in just one year. What more to unfold? The unpredictable life is the most natural thing, and yet we grasp for control. I want to surrender this control and just let dharam run its course. We know this deep inside, yet to practice is so hard..

This 2018 I shall take it easy with myself. Full acceptance and acknowledgement of my flaws and desires, then I shall surrender these things too. Transcend them hopefully and be more present and of service to other people. To love more and see love in all.
"You see, for all life is an act of faith and an act of gamble. The moment you take a step, you do so on an act of faith because you don't really know that the floor's not going to give under your feet. But this is the most powerful thing that can be done: surrender. So, that's quite mad because you see, it's letting things get out of control. All sensible people keep things in control. So, actually, therefore, in the course of wisdom, what is really sensible, is to let go, is to commit oneself, to give oneself up and that's quite mad. So we come to the strange conclusion that in madness lies sanity" - Alan Watts
