QW 043012 “A Picnic on Seashore”

On the seashore we talked for hours. I brought homemade sandwiches with brown bread, diced fruits, a pot of hot coffee, and a beach mat. The weather was so perfect: not too hot, not too cold. It was overcast with occasional breeze. It was so perfect for people like me who hate getting too much suntan. There were a couple of families spending their holiday on the beach. A big white dog was running around while its owner was pointing his camera at it. The sea was calm. The wind was comfortable.

We talked about a lot of things as always. Among many things you said to me, I’ll embrace the following:

You’re absolutely free from anything. You can distance yourself from anything that your inner voice tells you that you’re never going to like it.

I remember hearing the same message at the end of last year, but I didn’t completely relate it to myself yet. It took me a few more months to take it in. Yeah, as in your metaphor, it’s just like an irresistible wind constantly blowing against me. I need to stand firmly not to be blown away. I need to be conscious that the wind keeps blowing at me to begin with. If I, however, want to head for where I’d truly like to, I shouldn’t lose sight of where I’m standing. Or I can just “step aside” to fend off the wind.

What have I kept doing all the while, then? Haven’t I tried so hard tackling the wind? Or was the wind blowing, really? Haven’t I bound myself up with something that's never existed? In any cases I'm, or should be, absolutely free from anything. I don’t owe anyone anything although I tend to think I do. Life has to be just too short to do things that my inner voice rejects.
