Krishna Govinda

I’ve given up trying to understand.

because it is too exhausting, because i am afraid, because i am tired, because i have deadlines, because i am too busy freaking out about stepping into the real world soon, because i am stuck with a bad flu, because i am struggling to comfort some people living 7hrs flight away, because i keep worrying about whether some young souls i looked after during the past holidays are doing better or not, because

because i realized that by not trying to understand i feel more at peace with myself than i have ever felt

but i know, it won’t be long before i’ll desperately try to make sense of it all again.

i have had a new lullaby the past few weeks

    Trust and faith… both the simplest and hardest things to do.

    My life has been up and down panic – calm lately myself.
    …and back in South Africa I have some family that I worry about, because they don’t worry about themselves. It can erode you with tiredness – going panic-calm-panic.

    The stupid part is I know it always works out, that the Higher Powers that watch over us are real and are watching out for us, but I still panic… then calm down…

    I like to think I am a work in progress. 😉 I am learning to make the moments of panic shorter than the moments of calm. Hope that is the case for you too.

    You so chose the right words! Yes, it always seems to work out at the end of the day, but it’s so very difficult not to worry sometimes.

    I wish you the best of luck in making those moments of panic disappear. As for me, I still have a very very long way to go in learning how to let go 🙂
