Have you ever noticed how everything is in motion? The solar system with all its planets, the Earth and its rotation which give us the days and nights, the clouds that give the rain and the sunny days, the rotation of the seasons, the water making its way to the ocean and even once arrived in this vastness … it’s still moving.
Even the things not perceptible to the eye are in motion such as sounds, electrical waves, vibrations and so on. If we look at one of the smallest things that create matter, the atom, we will notice that it is also moving.
Of course, we are no exception. All our cells are simultaneously in motion at the very moment we are reading these lines. Our hair is growing, our lungs are constantly going back and forth. Our emotions bring us into their roller coasters. Even our entire body is moving toward death since its birth.
This universal movement, which includes everything, is so powerful that it’s unchangeable. Regardless of what we do, can we stop the Earth from turning or the atoms from moving? Since all elements are in motion, from the smallest atom to the solar system, tell me, why do we want, despite the impossibility, to stop or to accelerate this unwavering movement? We have a beautiful day, we want it to go on and never stop. We have a bad day and have the impression that it will never end. We meditate and want our mind to be quiet. We are facing a problem and want this mind to hurry up and quickly find a solution. We want our children to grow up. Then, we would give anything to have them young again. We want to accelerate our spiritual journey. When the lessons come, we are trying to avoid them. We feel free and guided, but when difficulties arise we feel like we have lost our way. Do you see the exhausting and useless waste of energy? It would be like trying to knock down a skyscraper only by pushing it with our bare hands! True freedom is not the absence of movement, but the acceptance of this movement.
