The Dreamer - 飞在水

Good feelings.

One of the last times I saw my teacher we had a discussion with a few other people about the nature of happiness and kindness. We concluded that one of the unique things about good feelings is that once we have them they are something that we want to spread to others -- they aren't selfish.

Tonight I have experienced a rather nice feeling that I'd like to share with the community because often it's times like this that I feel closest to enlightenment. It's been a while since I've felt this kind of thing. It's most likely because I've been caught up in the physical and mundane and haven't allowed myself to settle and dream. It's difficult to describe some of what I wish to communicate but none the less I thought I'd include an exerpt through my own journal.

"Tonight I have stayed up late again. I feel a joyful somber sense of spiritualism. I can feel the endings of relationships through the people around be, but through others I can also feel new beginnings. It's interesting how I sit awake now flipping through journals, staring off into space, and feeling the sound of the computer fan gently wash over me. Things end and things die. New flowers grow, and new loves are created. Happy. Sad. It's just the way it works.

It is what it is. I feel connected to the fluid of the universe itself. I want to smile, and I feel like crying.

It's beautiful -- not unlike seeing soap a bubble shifting in the sunlight with it's many colors swirling around each other.

For the first time in a while I feel enlightened."

Have a good day. :)
