To transcend mere obligation

The sheer belief in obligations

Creates a relative world,

Due to the subconscious impulsion to to perform them,

That sometimes morphs into depression for goals not achieved.

The wise ones know themselves

To be formless and timeless,

All-pervasive and immaculate,

And thusly transcends the need for obligations and the world,

In likeness to the obedience with which the cart follows the horse.

  1. What you have said is true, we often can feel obligated to others, putting ourselves last.. learning to love ourselves means starting to appreciate that our first obligation comes to self.
    Wishing you a relaxing weekend
