Drifting Sailor

Owning nothing, he sails through life.
Not possessions nor relationships,
not failures nor accomplishments,
not the vessel transporting his thoughts.
Everything borrowed, this life not his.

Although our body, and the character it portrays, may fully engage with its surroundings, we understand that this life is but a brief excursion, nothing truly ours. Having this perspective helps us find satisfaction amidst a life filled with upheaval and unrest. To be clear, on the surface we will own things, we will have relationships, we will fail and achieve — but underneath all this, we realize how temporary and detached it is, a mere story, and our character one of many we’ll play.
