Walking in the rain


It’s raining. I look outside, and I immediately feel resistance that I don’t want to be there. It would be too cold and extremely wet. Why would I want to do that? Nevertheless, I’m going outside for a walk.

Indeed, it’s cold and wet, but not as bad as I imagined. Few minutes pass, and I’m completely wet. Interestingly, I’m beginning to enjoy the process. It’s not cold because I’m moving. I feel liberated. The streets are empty, and apart from rain, it’s quiet. Perfect.

Looking at things from the outside doesn’t always reflect their true nature. As you experience it, you realize that most of the fears and doubts you had are just… an illusion that you created for yourself.
