Life

28-April-2018

Life presents itself first and foremost as a task: the task of maintaining itself, the task of earning one’s living. If this task is accomplished, what has been gained is a burden, and there then appears a second task: that of doing something with it so as to ward off boredom, which hovers over every secure life like a bird of prey. Thus the first task is to gain something and the second to become unconscious of what has been gained, which is otherwise a burden.
~ Arthur Schopenhauer
This Arthur Schopenhauer has some interesting quotes. Like Jean Rhys, maybe worth a read.

Beautiful Quote

21-April-2018

We can’t all be happy, we can’t all be rich, we can’t all be lucky – and it would be so much less fun if we were. There must be the dark background to show up the bright colours.
~ Jean Rhys

“Just let it be. You may as well; it is. Everything moves in and out at its own time. You have no control. You never did; you never will.”

Mindful Awareness

The article is a lovely read. Once sentence in it reminds me of the film, Leap Year. “…and treat every day like it was the first time, and the last…”. Only, in the film, they were talking about kissing.

Some wonderful words of wisdom worth remembering again and again.

The Price of Freedom is Lonliness

24-February-2018

A VERY interesting article in The Atlantic by Julie Beck. Something I think I need to read a couple of times to get the whole picture but one I definitely agree with. Anthony Giddens’ “pure relationship” sounds about right.

Life’s Purpose

16-December-2017

Over at curiosity.com there’s an article from Joanie Faletto you can find your life’s purpose using Ikigai, a Japanese concept which you ask yourself 4 questions.

  1. What do you love?
  2. What are you good at?
  3. What does the world need from you?
  4. What can you get paid for?

If you can find your one thing that answers all 4, you’ve got it made.
Good luck.

Letting Go

27-November-2017

An interesting read, regarding the Power of Letting Go. Not so sure about the 14 pages of selecting “next” but then, It is what it is. Nice article, though.

Tree

It must be great being a tree. Not knowing, just being.
