Do you ever just want to sit
in the quiet
and wait for truth
to soak you like a wave?

Or is that just me?

post script...
Be patient towards all that is unsolved in your heart,

and learn to love the questions themselves.
~Rainer Maria Rilke

I learnt my lesson about doing that. The last wave that soaked me seems to have given me a continual cold so the truth in that for me was "Get out of the rain dummy."

Rilke and I don't mix well. I always feel as if I will never measure up.

I don't sit still often and when I do, the truth still eludes me and I just fall asleep.

I always wanted to be the sort of person who meditates and finds a way to still their soul. I've never achieved it. I think I try too hard or something.

i am bad at sitting. public transportation helps me out, because it feels like i am doing something, but i can sit still. a psych professor from college called it "subjective time." he said you just had to do nothing.
