One day I cut into an apple and it was bleeding. 
I had the feeling as if I was cutting to the core of creation and thus into myself.  
I was aware of being alive, of belonging to this world and of being part of the whole. 
Shouldn't it make me happy,  to feel all the pain and sorrow of this world? 
It's true, for then I won't wallow in my own painful thoughts. 
Thoughts  wasted searching  for answers to the eternal question of our existence. 
It's important to be distracted from ones very own thoughts, I think.
