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.

And so it dawns on one…

Sometimes its truly amazing that, even with our newly, renewed or slightly committed enthusiasm for ‘carpe diem’ or seizing the day how wrong we can be… I often find that the harder we try to alter our path, our thoughts, our actions etc. there is often some ‘pushback’ from the universe (or Murphy) which leads me to conclude that as much as we resist change at times, the universe also only accepts and approves when it deems appropriate.

This is important cos it can oftentimes explain the many unsuccessful, less than fruitful/enjoyable, and downright frustrating attempts we make to ‘carpe the Diem’… So dont be harsh on yourself, don’t dump all the blame at your feet and ponder your insignificance or your perceived failure, cos sometimes it quite literally is just the world fucking with you!!
