Found this little piece of reading and wanted to share.
I smiled so much when I read it, but these bits really stood out:
“When you are thrown into this world for the first time, your inclination is to learn how to play the game and make a comfortable life for yourself. When you have been here many times before, you already know it’s a game, so you don’t even bother trying to play it anymore.”
“You stick out like a sore thumb wherever you go. School, work, family gatherings. Your whole life, you have always felt a little out of place. Being human is still something you’re getting used to, and may never get used to. Behaving “properly” in public seems forced for you, and trying to maintain a meaningless conversation is painful for you. You don’t quite understand why humans operate the way they do.”
“And quite frankly, it’s acquiring more wisdom and experience that you value the most in life. You aren’t really concerned with social status, fame, or making a nice cozy nest for yourself. You desire to grow spiritually, to evolve into a better person, and to help other people do the same. This feels most natural and rewarding to you.”
Oh and do yourself a favour, watch the video at the end.
