“Ya know, I find this imprisonment oddly peaceful. For once in my life I don’t have to be afraid. I know I ought to be, but something about this place puts me at ease. A good night’s sleep helps, too.” ~Murtagh of ‘Eragon’ by the illustrious Chris Paolini
Ya know, I find the imprisonment inside my life oddly peaceful. for once in my life I don’t have to worry and be afraid of the next decision I have to make.The world says I ought to be worried, but There’s something powerful about this place of surrender that puts me at ease. I know that I can rest, because I’m not the one that’s driving. It helps.
so, yeah, I twisted the quotation a bit, but still. I was listening to Eragon on CD last night while I was going to bed and I heard this line and I thought “That is so true to my life”. The world says that not being completely in control of your life is not okay and that being imprisoned by ‘religion’ isn’t cool, but God is there and he makes it peaceful. It’s peaceful because I don’t have to be worrying about life and troubles and toils. I can just sit back and sleep!
Sleep is something that I really appreciate right now. I”m severely deprived of it.
