Live with passion... 77th Day 03-18

by Administrator 18. March 2011 04:45

I am totally convinced, that doing things in life that makes you feel alive and happy is the key to looking back at thinking “What a ride!!”  I just came back from dancing salsa with the great group of people…had lots of fun….I love to dance …it could always bring a smile on my face… even in the darkest days ... Everyone needs to find and nourish at least one thing which acts as a magic prism… changing life to a colorful explosion, music played at the full blast…. smell of your favorite pie or chocolate cake … the air vibrating with happiness. We should practice the feeling of gratitude and find something to be thankful for or simply amazed by, in each day. At the same time, not settling for less and insisting on waking up our spirit, making it feel like a child …We are revived at those moments, feeling fully awake and engaged. When I was a child, I would watch people going to work in the morning and coming back in the evening…all of it seemed as a surreal machinery from science fiction movie…everything the same…predictable...missing life…grey and terribly sad.. I promised myself, to do everything possible not to become one of the robots…The sad part is, we don’t even notice the change…its subtle...day by day…giving up one more piece of ourselves. We justify it, by proclaiming the obligation to “grow up”…stop being “silly”, standing with both feet on the ground. I am … a dreamer… but I also believe, you can have a deep sense of responsibility and at the same time… wonder, dream, follow your heart. There are people, whose transformation from “wide eyed open”, passionate and active changed to simply going through the motions of everyday.  Our society makes it easier …to become 8-5 person….it’s more socially acceptable to live satisfying just basic physical needs( in the case  when you are capable of searching higher)….then looking inside and deciding “what makes your soul sing”….  We are “rewarded” for fitting into this machinery…after all society couldn’t function properly otherwise. I am not the rebel and proponent of ceasing all social roles and forgetting all responsibilities…simply asking for more balance…between fulfilling social roles and individual aims. When we look at the history of humans …its paved with passionate dreamers, visionaries, seekers of their own truth. Obviously not all of us will change the course of history or become a pillar of development….but unless we try …we will never know.  All of us are born with this seed of magic…it could be the love of the music or painting, , science, traveling, writing, singing, dancing, star gazing, sports….we just have to find it and never lose it again. The price to live without the magic element is too high to pay… of losing yourself…and the rewards of a  nice pat on the back from our social acceptance of being like everyone else…false by the definition. I wish for all of us to start each day, living as a precious gift, seeing ourselves as a unique imprint of consciousness with equal rights to search, dream and take part in unfolding of our individual story …

Hungry for Life Caterpillar

I so understand you! I'm constantly skipping from one passion to another...When I hear someone sninging i'm sure singing is the soul of everything, then I become sure it's dancing or skating...I just can't choose something and I can't emrbace everything. But I want to do someting really well, that feels like flying!

The Little Prince

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..."

"They don't find it," I answered.

"And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."

"Of course," I answered.

And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."
