So much has happened in the last 2 yrs…quote below sums it up.
“I’d always thought that the most important thing in life is to have a goal and now I know that the goal is only secondary importance.
It’s the journey towards it that’s important. It’s on the journey that we best get to know ourselves as well as what our fellow pilgrims are like. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a toddler taking first steps or whether we are setting out to conquer the deep primeval forest or climbing the highest mountain in the world.” ~ Jindro Marthis
Secretly everyone longs for something. Waiting for something that will surprise or take their breath away however it’s temporary and shortly after dissatisfaction or emptiness sets in. We miss the true gem that comes from understanding that life isn’t only about achieving goals or things; but it’s the “journey through the human experience. “
…seeking things we think will make us happy. Looking for “That Something” …which often in the end leaves feelings of incompleteness. So we move on but shortly only to be dissatisfied again. This is frailty of human nature. “The Grass is greener on the other side syndrome”
I’ve learned life is not only about temporal satisfaction or achieving goals. It’s not the things that we take with us but the memories we leave behind. Good, bad or indifferent.
“Goals are not the means to an end but means to experience the journeys’ meaning.” ~Omifucius
…although It’s impossible to express much of my thoughts and experiences throughout my journey…I can say it has been intriguingly surprising. …
I’m thankful for friends with intertwining journeys and making it our unique experiences. Thank you for making the room and my life greener.
Wishing everyone with enlightened experiences. May it shape you, mold you and bless you. -Omi
