When you are as old as I and have meditated as much as I have
It is very easy to love your life...

But I didn't answer because it sounds pompous.

to love the life you live you need to be relaxed, not worry too much about whether or not your efforts are going to pay off

On Sunday i heard someone say that yoga is 50% willpower and 50% acceptance. Maybe that is why it's such a popular "sport" nowadays.

ohh its all so complicated these questions of life

i say love comes first, too. just because it makes everything look better. without love, you can't see the options you have.


i haven't always loved my life-- in fact i've hated it for 25 years. and now that i'm starting all over again, i'm kind of lost, i'm wondering about what the life i'd really REALLY love would actually be--

not this, because it don't really like my job and it leaves me unsatisfied. but i don't know what it would be!

i told you it was complicated.

living is the thing, and hopefully, loving it is the reaction to that living. so frame your objectives in terms of living, being honest to your self, and hopefully you'll do well enough in living to get the loving it reaction.

but to make loving-it your objective, puts you into a place where your emotions can feed on themselves. eg. from failure arises sadness, but feeling sadness is another failure in itself because your goal is to love it, so you get another unhappy, which is another failure, so you get another unhappy, which is another failure, etc.

anyhow, that's my view of it this week.

I used to dream of the life I would live and love someday but I've come to realise that this is an ideal I shouldn't spend all my energy on trying to get to, because if I did I probably wouldn't love it as much as I thought I would - grass is always greener and such. I'm learning to love the life I live, and work on changing some of the bad parts and doing more of what makes it good, rather than trying to attain an ideal life as a whole. I don't think anyone is ever going to have a life that they love because of an absence of bad things in it or the fulfillment of all of their desires - that shouldn't be what makes you happy, I think.

All I can say is we are in an interesting age of demographic definition. I wish I could say it less boringly, but nope, that's about it. I'm spent.

The thought I had watching those videos was that these are some strange times we live in.

not super original (^) but that is my answer to the qotd
