I Was Born To Live

I was born to live and to experience whatever life brings to me.

I don’t know how to be a successful person but I know how to be a normal person who is offered this body and mind in this lifetime, so I can learn the meaning of being a human. I don’t know how to be on top of the world but I know how it feels being put under the world, so I can understand respectfulness. I don’t know how to be perfect but I see my imperfections and accept them slowly, slowly.

I was born to live with the knowledge that rather than bargaining about what I have received from people, instead, I can have a look at that and realize: “That’s more than enough”. I don’t need that much as I want and people don’t have that much as I think. To learn to have less is more important than to have more to me.

I was born to live and not to be destroyed by myself or others. Everything and everyone is my friends, my teachers who complete me although the ways they do it sometimes unbearable. They force me to see what I don’t want to see. They show hidden truths which I don’t accept. They give me what I don’t like and take away what I do like.

I was born to live as if this life is designed respectively for me. Nothing is lacking and nothing is surplus. Everything makes a perfect sense and works ultimately harmoniously. The more I feel this, the less I worry. The less I worry, the better I live.

I was born to live and that alone matters.
