Wanting


Whilst sat in the sunshine, alone in Tofino with no distractions other than my own thought patterns, I once again raised the question, “what do I want?” This question has so many connotations. What do I want to do, what do I want to be, what do I want my life to look like, what do I want to do for fun, what do I want to do today. So many questions that always leave me lost and confused. Then it dawned on me. What I really want is to be free of all those questions. It’s the questions that confuse me. We can not possibly know what we will be doing later or what we are going to do tonight. There are too many variables that can get thrown into the mix to even contemplate in too much detail. So in the simplest terms, I want peace, peace from the constant internal questioning of what I want. When all the wanting subsides, I am merely left with tranquility and contentment. The next simple want or need will become apparent at the moment it is required and the repetitive self questioning need be no more.
So from this minor insight I will try to stop wanting to know the answer to my wants and just bask in the simplicity of the peace that currently surrounds me here in this beautiful moment. Remain clear; stop asking!

  1. Interesting, that made me think….perhaps substituting the word ‘want’ for ‘need’ simplifies things a little?

    Enjoy your contemplating!!!! : )
