We are always in a race because we play many roles in our lives and feel the need to meet the expectations defined by our roles, such as being a spouse, parent, children, sibling, in-law, friend, employer, employee, etc. While we take on these identities, we often run towards only those that meet our wants that make us happy and run away from those we do not want. Somewhere along the way, we forget to pause and understand the truth in us, the Self, the wholeness at our core.
As the rain on a mountain peak runs off
The slopes on all sides, so those who see
Only the seeming multiplicity of life
Run after things on every side.
