What No Longer Serves You

We’ve got this one all wrong.

How often have you been told to let go of that which no longer serves you?

And you do it, time and time again.

What a strange way to look at the world.

As if we’re somehow here to be served?

Mistaking our selves as Gods, instead of humble servants.

Perhaps this is not The Way that it was intended.

Perhaps we were never meant to be the narcissists we’ve turned out to be

Perhaps there are some things worth holding onto

Not in the service of yourself, but rather in the service of others

In the service of something bigger than you

Perhaps we’ve become so attached to the temporal nature of this world

That we’ve forgotten that nature is not temporal, nor is it bound by this world.

We’re so disillusioned, that we have to have it all right now

Afraid to let anything slip us by, the dreaded FOMO.

So caught up in our pursuit of happiness, that we’ll trample
