Has your life been a celebration or a sadness?
“Jump into the river, that is the only way to know life. Jump into the river. Never be a spectator. The spectator is the poorest man in the world. Participate.”
Your life has purpose. The only way to discover that purpose is to live it authentically. The wise man on the mountain may appear peaceful and all-knowing; however, he may be unable to pay his bills or function well in the world. Our participation allows us to cultivate our unique capabilities. Our experiences build compassion and wisdom.
Don’t be afraid to fail. Be willing to say “I don’t know” when necessary, but also bring that willingness to how you choose to experience life. Someone can research honey, describing how it is produced, its texture, how differing flowers change its flavor, etc. But until one actually tastes honey, they cannot understand its true sweetness or how it transforms the taste experience.
This human experiment is meant to be enjoyed. Have your preferences but do not be attached to them or block the limitless possibilities that are available to you. As we dance together, all of existence celebrates through us.
