Why Not Be A Nobody

Leunig has the magical and artist knack of being able to capture, with a single, simple drawing, the tragic self incarceration of individuals living in modern societies which revolve almost entirely around the attainment of money, goods and services.

Where there is no due consideration for the deep inner spiritual awareness and interconnection that permeates the entire fabric of life upon our planet, existence becomes artificial and meaningless.

It is little wonder that there is so much profound inner dissatisfaction, which in turn expresses itself in all manner of negative ways. The majority are locked into a system that compromises inner spiritual wealth for short term material gain. Such an orientation is bound to lead to frustration and imbalance in people's lives.

We may be able to dull our sense of growing inner 'dis-ease' by distracting ourselves with the endless calls to our attention, time and energy, but we can not make it go away...

However, there are choices that can be made in the way we live and in this fact lies our hope, our happiness and our peace.

We are so much more than we 'think' we are, in fact we are not at all what we 'think' we are...

Does that statement rouse your attention? Does it rouse your curiosity or bring forth some kind of inner response?

If it does then why not follow it and see where it can lead you.

We think that we are such and such or so and so and thereby lock ourselves into a tiny cage of 'assumed identity.'  But is this how it REALLY is?

Why not become a nobody and embrace infinity? Break free of your cage of assumed identity and fly...

Allow the mind to become quiet and the heart to become open.

To assume our true inheritance we need only to become aware of it.
