Slow Life - Grizzly Bear (feat. Victoria Legrand)
We search and search, tirelessly digging through the drudgery of our waning hopes. We conjure outlandish theories to explain the unexplainable. We insert ourselves into the center of the universe, meticulously over-analyzing every little action we take so we can find the blame for our hopelessness. There is an ancient zen proverb that says "Those who seek will not find." It’s true, when we surrender ourselves to that fear and start to desperately search we start missing the opportunities, we start looking at the world through a blindfold, living in a dim reality. Every thing starts to seem empty. Our lives become consumed by our desires, we grow envious of those lucky ones whose search has come to an end. When we seek, we are steering further and further away, only later to realize what we’ve always wanted is what right in front of our noses, we were just too busy wallowing in our hopelessness to realize.
That is why I stopped searching. I’m resting on the laurels of fate, confident that karma will be more than kind to me. I’m assured that the universe will reciprocate my good vibes, someone will catch on to them sooner or later. Living a slow life, pacing myself because I’ve realized that feeling anxious and being in a rush will not get you anywhere.
"I think I know what’s on your mind. A couple words, a great divide."
