There is nothing to practice. To know yourself, be yourself. To be yourself, stop imagining yourself to be this or that. Just be. Let your true nature emerge. Don’t disturb your mind with seeking.

It has been awhile since I wrote a blog post. You might ask, “why is that so?” The thought of writing died down whenever I realized that there are always something more important to do besides writing some random stuff going on in my life. Wait. Let me finish. Do not get me wrong here. I love to write. And the urges are stronger than before. I am not kidding. It was to the extent that I feel guilty and regret in life. So I wondered, “Why didn’t I put in more effort in my studies back in my high school?”, “Why didn’t I like to read or write then?” and “Why didn’t I listen to what the teachers has said and concentrate in class?” It gets on my nerves at times.
Hence, I want to do something by putting it into action. Something like creating a new blog, and writing my first post. A friend once told me “words are cheap”. Therefore, I do not want to be another person who say things for the sake of saying, complained and do nothing about it. Many times in life we end up regretting not doing things that you wish you could have done. Not necessary your dream job or something that are written down on your bucket list. But something that is simple enough to put a smile on your face, a sort of satisfactory, the little joy and accomplishment in that temporal moment.
For that, is priceless.
