this life we are living, in all its glory.
In my eyes,
As much as wanting to achieve dreams and goals is important and to be someone that you consider "accomplished or superior" - but we are not all that different and most see this in the end. As we all know life goes by oh so fast, like cosmic blinks within the earth's circulation. One moment its may the next its September, time doesn't stop but it takes us with it. It drains us and ages us, eventually it kills us. this is a part of life but what you do for the moments when your capable is your choice. Its about being where your feet are, as the present situations are the only moments we have to live, I guess what i'm trying to say is, live, live well. while you can! while your able! Live while your hearts still beating. while air feels your lungs easily. and your health is at its most pristine . change your perspective see the good, forgive the bad and move on. make the most of opportunities. and remember to even exist is a gift. don't take things for granted. be grateful.. because when its all done and your near the end you'll see that you cheated yourself all along, its going to break your heart. don't settle for melancholy.
As best explained by allan watts is that life is not a journey,
His depiction is represented by the fact that.....
"The existence, to the physical universe is basically playful. There is no necessity for it whatsoever. It isn’t going anywhere. That is to say, it doesn’t have some destination that it ought to arrive at. But that it is best understood by the analogy with music. Because music, as an art form is essentially playful. We say, “You play the piano” You don’t work the piano.Why? Music differs from say, travel. When you travel you are trying to get somewhere. In music, though, one doesn’t make the end of the composition. The point of the composition. If that were so, the best conductors would be those who played fastest. And there would be composers who only wrote finales. People would go to a concert just to hear one crackling chord… Because that’s the end! Same way with dancing. You don’t aim at a particular spot in the room because that’s where you will arrive. The whole point of the dancing is the dance. But we don’t see that as something brought by our education into our conduct. We have a system of schooling which gives a completely different impression. It’s all graded and what we do is we put the child into the corridor of this grade system with a kind of, “Come on kitty, kitty" attitude. And then you go onto kindergarten and that’s a great thing because when you finish that you get into first grade. Then, “Come on” first grade leads to second grade and so on. And then you get out of grade school and you got high school. It’s revving up, the thing is coming, then you’re going to go to college… Then you’ve got graduate school, and when you’re through with graduate school you go out to join the world.Then you get into some racket where you’re selling insurance. And they’ve got that quota to make, and you’re gonna make that. And all the time that thing is coming – It’s coming, it’s coming, that great thing. The success or whatever it is you’re working for .Then you wake up one day about 40 years old and you say, “My God, I’ve arrived. I’m there.” And you don’t feel very different from what you’ve always felt. Look at the people who live to retire; to put those savings away. And then when they’re 65 they don’t have any energy left. They’re more or less impotent. And they go and rot in some, old peoples, senior citizens community. Because we simply cheated ourselves the whole way down the line. we thought of life by analogy with a journey, with a pilgrimage, which had a serious purpose at that end, and the thing was to get to that thing at that end. Success, or whatever it is, or maybe heaven after you’re dead. But we missed the point the whole way along. It was a musical thing, and you were supposed to sing or to dance while the music was being played."
ENJOY YOUR LIFE! x
We all grow up on the belief that what placing we get within a competition or life situation, defines who we are & what we value ourselves on. Winning does not give you super powers, it should not make you believe you are better than someone else, a status doesn't make you more superior than someone else, neither does, the more money you have or however famous you become. When we are young, we get told that being the best at something should be a life ambition, that it defines who we are. Makes us better than others. However, this teaching only creates a negative impact for the future of us all. It makes us believe that loosing means we are worthless or not good enough. It makes us re define the purpose of life. it makes us judge people for what they have achieved, instead of who they are as a person. Its funny, everyone wants to be friends with a winner. & this is only human nature. but it breeds cowardly thoughts.
I compete & I loose oh boy do I loose, probably at times when I should of got through even as a flook accident. But I loose. & I'm sure people have their judgments of me because of how badly I may have performed, But I would never let the thoughts of others define me, nor would I let a loss define me. Winning does not define me. Loosing does not define me. I am more than a result. Everyone is more than a result & I find it sad that people judge others by how good they are at something. It doesn't make them a kind person. I am not saying that talent should not be applauded but it should not be the definition of someones value. and we shall not judge people if they are not excelling in a sport or career outlet, we all have our own journey & everyone's glory awaits them at certain times, within their existence.
