You're tired, but tired of what?

What are you actually tired of? Life? Other people? Your mind?

Well, that's a step closer to the truth. It's probably more accurate to say that you're tired of your mind than you are of other people.

That's nothing to be ashamed of. At least you're being honest. The truth is, it's not other people that bother us. It's what our minds have to say about those people that bothers us.

It's not our miserable job that bothers us. It's the miserable feeling we get when we're at work but wanting to be somewhere else.

And finally, it's not the goal that keeps us moving, but the discomfort of being where we are.

The point of all this isn't to say that the outside world doesn't matter. Rather, the point is to say that you really only care about your inner world. It just so happens that your inner world is so conditionally tied to the outer world that you don't see a difference.

So when you say you're tired - tired of life, of the world, of other people - recognize you're really just tired of not knowing how to deal with you inner world.

When you approach life from within, and recognize that the problem starts, and usually ends there, you realize you actually do have some control over things. Not much control over other people, places, and things, but you do have control over your inner world.

You're allowed to just notice the inner turmoil take place without actually partaking in it. That's what you're tired of, so that's what you can work with.

Live with substance!
