On The Road Again by @WillieNelson

‘On The Road Again’ is a song by @WillieNelson that includes this lyric:

We’re the best of friends.
Insisting that the world keep turning our way
And our way
is on the road again.

We often think of this lyric at @happy_ops because it is a concise description of the type of one type of desire – the desire for something to not be the way it is. Being attached to our plan or certain expectations, we might think that things must go our way. But they do not always go our way and we are crushed when faced with the reality.

With this type of desire it is impossible to focus on what you have already and to be content with the reality. For  @WillieNelson he could be happy already with the things that he already has, playing Trigger and making music with his friends.

This is our interpretation of the lyrics from listening to the song. You can listen to the full song in this video and decide for yourself on the meaning of the lyrics:

 

Love, @happy_ops
