The Temple of the Wind God
While in Tulum recently, my girlfriend and I had the pleasure of visiting these sprawling ruins nestled along the coast. These structures were constructed to pay homage to the god of the wind well over a thousand years ago.
While such a belief may seem silly to us today, I believe we’ve simply transferred our objects of worship to different targets. We worship the people we idolize. We worship money and the material goods it can bring us. We worship ideologies and their connected ideologues. However, as some of you may have experienced, none of these things are very fulfilling as objects of worship. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
So, what is left to worship? In what can we place our faith? For me, it’s the idea of the higher self. The idea of a perfected version of the self is the altar at which I choose to pray. It’s the idea that if you were the absolute best possible self you can be, the world would be immeasurably better as a result. I’ll never get to perfect, but the closer I can be to the best I can be, the bigger the impact on the world.
