“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.
So true. Sometimes being in someone else’s control (God’s) is the most freeing thing imaginable.
cuz you can relax. Children are so carefree because they don’t have the responsibility of an adult. Someone is taking care of them. As a teenager I fully understand the feeling of wanting to be free of my parents control…. but also as a teenager who has gotten said control I understand how freeing it is to have some one else shoulder your burdens and solve your problems for you…. It’s oddly peaceful.
