As a Naropa graduate, I’ve seen people spend tens of thousands of dollars retreating from the world so they could find themselves. Maybe folx were trying to find themselves because the self kept running away, playing hide-and-go-seek? Myriad ways to run away from ourselves… but it’s not just running away. It’s a running away that’s disguised as “self care” and “seeking enlightenment”.
It’s running away, y’all. For real. Hard stop.
Like John Kabat-Zinn said, “Wherever you go, there you are.”
So, where do you think you can run that you’ll be free of yourself?
(See y’all tomorrow)
