If only…

If only we knew what was going to happen, we could plan so much better, and yet it’s in all the planning that we forget about living. So maybe the fact that the future is indeed unknown is the motivating factor (or should be) for living a bit more carefree, a little less circumspect and a whole lot more living.

A quote to live by…

I wish this quote was mine, it’s that great, and true.

“Life is not about being successful, it’s about being useful…”

Hallelujah…sort of

I wonder how often we use fate to rationalize things we are trying to avoid (in full or partial). It is a fact that we want to believe that bad things happening is something, in terms of process at least, that we need to be in control of, whether perceived or actual, even when the actual is merely a pragmatic way of rationalising things so far outside our control we’d rather not entertain the implication(s) of the truth, hallelujah!

Death is beautiful…

In a photo that is, am sure one could deliberate the existential notion of the beauty in death in society, family, humanity etc. The knowledge of, and absolute fear of mortality, it’s a scary state of senses I guess…

But this is just a photo, which I reckon is testament to the beauty that exists beyond the realisation of life.

Sometimes faith is exactly that, a leap into infinity & hoping for beyond…

I understand people that ‘practicalise’ religion, but I figure that even atheists have faith, in something, even if its not of divine nature, the fact that there is some faith in something actually means that there is hope (or faith) in something not practical (in a sense). It could be something as mundane as believing in yourself to do something specific in a specific situation, and that you’d be able to succeed, so, faith in yourself, is it then such a stretch to think the same could hold true for that part of your existential context beyond yourself?? I think not, hence faith is not such a stretch, just a leap beyond yourself.
