There is a lot of talk about hope these days, it is sometimes even seen as a drug, hopium.

But hope is a false star, it is making ones bed with disappointment. Life doesn´t give any promises.

Hope is also a way of straying away from life. Because life is here and now, it has never been and will never be anywhere else to be found but in this moment.

We might cover our lives with hope, but we will never get any guarantees.

The only thing we will ever get is this that is. This moment.

No hope, no promises.

Only this.

A firm trust in the greater power in this moment is the leading star for our lives.
