Little Bit of Sympathy

Life is built up by the sacrifice of the individual to the whole. Each cell in the living body must sacrifice itself to the perfection of the whole; when it is otherwise, disease and death enforce the lesson-

*Part Two*

One of the main themes this year at CultFit has been: Living in the present moment.  Each day, when we share a thought with you … We do so with no expectations.  If you have been fortunate enough to travel around the world or surprisingly been called at work by your kids principle?!?  The joy of traveling to faraway and exotic lands is bundled craftily with the excitement of not knowing what to expect.  Kinda like driving to school …

What in the hell did that little turd do this time!”  <— Driving to school will never be the same.

We are burdened at times by our obsessive compulsive drive towards goals and plans.  Another focus here is:  Keeping a present state of mind.  Plans and goals, be they short-term or long-term, are fine as long as we practice the pivotal Buddhist idea of non-attachment (digest this for a minute peeps).

Our main issue with goals is that in today’s hyper-media-society one becomes obsessed with the “goal“.  However the real freedom is the realization that there are no goals, there is only the Now.

What happens when we wait for a tomorrow that never comes?  All of us have uttered these very words:  The weather today blows!  I’ll wait to run tomorrow.  F**K this sh!t!!!  You want me to drive to gym when it’s freezing outside?  Back to bed for me ...

We all have expectations to fulfill the very goals we honestly set (on a good – convenient day), the night before, when it’s warm and the bottle of Jam Jar has not been opened.  The thing is peeps: YOU and the people around YOU will suffer when the goals you set fail to come to fruition.

A show of hands from the caring Husbands and boyfriends reading today?!?  Anyone … Hello?!?

If you are patient in a moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow-

The last time we tried this little segment we like to call “Sucking the joy out of what you love“.  The cyclist of CultFit took to their pitchforks and spades to start an agrarian revolt against us.  We were brow beaten to a bloody pulp, by cyclist.  We learned a few things that day:  Cyclist certainly are a peculiar bunch and are easily stirred up into a frenzy.   Skiers on the other hand …
