It is what we have done to ourself. And once we understand that this is what we have done to ourself, we can drop it. It is our attitude; nobody is forcing us to feel that way. We have chosen it-maybe unconsciously, maybe for some subtle reasons that feel good at the time but which turn out to be bitter, but we have chosen it. Once we understand that it is us , why settle for okayness? That is not much, and our life will not be a life of song and dance and celebration. Just by being okay, how will we celebrate?
Just by being okay, how will we love? Why be so miserly about it? But we generally are stuck at okayness. We have lost all energy just because of our ideas. Okayness is like a person who is not sick but who is also not healthy, just so-so. He is not ill, but he is not alive and healthy. He cannot celebrate. I if it is too difficult for we to feel blissful and happy , at least feel miserable. That will be something; at least energy will be there. We can cry and weep. We may not be able to laugh, but tears will be possible. Even that will be life. But okayness is very cold. And if there is a question of choosing, why choose misery when we can choose happiness?
