Will this bike make me happy??

I know this is an illusion. I know buying this motorcycle won’t MAKE me happy. So why is it that I feel so much more ALIVE as soon as I take flight on two wheels?? 

Oh mind, you are so attached to what is happening around you! Don’t you know this feeling of excitement and freedom and exhilaration is in YOU, not in the artistry of metal and rubber you are riding? If I believe this lie you’re telling me, what happens to me when I don’t have a bike? When I can no longer ride due to age or illness or fatigue? You would have me believe that I could no longer access this feeling...Let’s not do that to ourselves. Let’s just enjoy this experience without turning it into something else, without attaching some false meaning to it that leaves us disempowered.

Oh mind, I’ll make you a deal...I’ll get this bike, I’ll let you ride it and feel the complete and utter ecstatic freedom you want to feel...as long as you believe me when I tell you that you don’t need a motorbike to feel this way-that’s just a rule you’ve made up because you’re terrified of the power you would have if you allowed yourself to fully let go...❤️
