Lucid Thoughts of Homelessness

Imagine leaving what you had and moving to another place with the intention to start a new life. In this case, your dream consists of building a beautiful house for yourself in which you can start a family. What happens when you are building a house? It is hard work, time consuming. First you put foundations. You want your house to stay strong for generations, don’t you? You layer brick after another, day after day. You put up windows and doors, cover the bricks with concrete, paint the walls, design the rooms… Eventually, one beautiful day months, perhaps years later, you sit at the patio of your own house, the one you built with your bare two hands, with your soulmate next to you. You sight with relief and happiness. Yet, this is not the end of the story. Your creations need maintenance. A house, a relationship, education, work… Everything needs maintenance, so it keeps its quality. Therefore, you don’t just give up, sell the house, or leave it be and move to another place. You need to stay there, repair what breaks, refresh and remaster.
