"The trick is to not try…"
It may not seem wise to cut off everything toxic inside and outside you in order to stretch the membrane between the two, so you can finally see the big picture, see what’s on the outside within your head. But I’m no fool to assign poles to a magnet, because existence is like a mirror reflecting itself. I’m not going to mention names or nouns; you know what is unhealthy and what is not. Trust your gut, because life and logic don’t hold hands, and if you look out for a God in the sky to show you the way then bless you, because the way lies in front of you, not above you, you’re looking in the wrong direction.
Cutting off seems too painstaking, so I’d rather say let go, of everything that halts all the lies from leaving your mind; relationships, habits, material things, people, money, reason, conscience, resentment, hope, your broken shaver or whatever it is that serves you but owns you because worship it like your life depends on it. Let go of it, why? Because it’s not going to run anywhere, it’s just going to fall into place, whether you like it or not. I’ve grown sick and tired of being sick and tired at times, and that’s because I feared opening my hands, because I liked my palms filled, like we all do. And the thing about fear is that, it only makes you hate, and eventually, it makes you become what you hate.
It seems absurd, all of this, it seems too good to be real, but, the trick is to not hold your breath underwater, it is to swallow the ocean till it becomes you, till the membrane becomes less denser after it stretches, stretches enough to become transparent for you to see the world, Not the world inside your head, but the world that you only see when you silence your mind.

Be like the samurai. Cut, cut clean and fast.
