You’re the Light

One man practicing kindness in the wilderness is worth all the temples this world pulls-

Today, right now in this amazing moment, I feel that we have a greater need for serenity than during any other moment in our lives. Mind blowing technology and endless possibilities are literally at our fingers tips, affording each one of us the potential to become “somebody Whatever this may mean.

In essence, we constantly strive to be a perfect “somebody” The perfect friend on FaceTube – always the first to comment and liking your awesome status. The perfect running or workout buddy – consistently settling for just enough and not easing into the growth that discomfort can bring us, but yet we choose to go past discomfort into pain. How do you go about sharing with a friend during a spirited training ride: Chill. Ease your eyes from the road beneath you and smell the fresh spring air

The question I present to you this morning is this – Can the pursuit of trying to be somebody, be brought into alignment with trying to be present minded?

Daily Meditation:

Many of us are myopically trying to become somebody, robbing ourselves of inner peace and present-mindedness. Sometimes, stopping midway through a run, a yoga class – turning the radio off as you start the commute home – Is all you need to become “somebody“.

    Indeed. Running without earblasters. Riding a bike without noise. Leaving the cell phone in mute all day (accidentally of course). Not getting around to reading my blogreader for a week? That’s something I miss, a little bit. :-)

  2. I was reading about this same topic this weekend. The author said that the pursuit of being “somebody” positions us as separate, rather than being a part of one. Hard to balance such a concept in this achievement oriented world, huh?

      My apologies for the late response … I have thought about achievement, and more specifically what it means to actually achieve “whatever” it may be. Most of what you will find here is my quest for finding balance in our hyper competitive and over connected world. i hope you stick along for the journey – may your heart be filled with warmth and happiness, take care!
