Stopping the Insanity
What is insanity?
It is merely a stopping
For the stir in our soul
We’ve all heard the famous phrase, “Stop the insanity!!” So, what exactly is the definition of insanity?
Well, one definition describes it as extreme foolishness or irrationality.
Or as Albert Einstein once quoted, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Perhaps a combination of the two yields a familiar theme — we must stop at times to take an inventory of our actions so as to better understand the more rational approach. One could say that we create our own insanity. It is not a byproduct of the external self. For when we allow the circumstances around us to swelter and spin, this is when we realize we have lost perspective. And this, then, is the exact moment to slow down and listen to our soul.
Our soul always knows the path to freedom. And this is freedom from self and others. More important, however, is our ability to be free inside. For it is when we reach this point that we encounter an absolute state of well-being.
Perhaps this is what we can refer to as a bullseye moment.
