POST ONE: What is it all about? A good question.
What is the essence of my life - I wonder.
Is there anything that matters to me, a few lines I could write on a scratch of paper?
Maybe I would write my personal version of
Raymond Carver's Quote from the Late Fragment
"And did i get what i wanted from this life, even so?
And what did i want?
To share some love,
To ride some waves,
To sing some songs.
That's all i wanted on the earth."
A few waves, a little love, a few songs, a bit of life. That should be it? That's all that matters to me in my life?
Yep, apart from being healthy, living in peace and being relatively free of course.
My heart felt joy, in the waves that I was allowed to ride, in the moments i shared with my family,friends and romantical partners. Always when I sang songs, when I played with cats and dogs, wandererd around in beautiful nature, especially in Hawaii, so whenever I felt liveliness, freedom and peace in me.
Whenever I read a good book or when I saw a great movie.
Whenever I joint in a yoga class sourounded by fellow likeminded Jivamuktis. Generally, when I laughed. Sometimes even when I cried and was sad.When I was quiet and noticed breathing came so naturally.
It really comes down to those three: Love, waves, songs. And if I had a little more time? What would I do then?
I'd love, I'd ride some more waves and sing some more songs. Trying to be the best version of me.
I am in competition with no one.I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone.I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday.
