Wise Words From a Gentleman on Tumblr.
I’ll say it.
The ways they taught us to be happy, go to school, get a good job, be good, get a good husband, wife or partner, don’t work. They don’t truly work. Or they work only in spurts, using them your happiness is like a fire you have to keep stoking to stay warm. Doing those you never realize there is an eternal flame inside you that will always keep you warm. Start the journey inward. Always inward. Inward towards your flame. Inward towards Life and towards Love. Inward is the only journey that gets you what you need. But it is the only journey people avoid till they are pushed to, till that is all that is left. You have to be dragged inward by the truth that the old ways we’re taught don’t work.
