If by will become, intent be done and ego raise its ugly head. Look good, look straight, don’t blink a bleary eye for that there staring at you is no fake.
That there butt ugly monster be worst than your worst ever nightmare. Worst than the worst ever nightmare you’d wish on anyone else. Worst than your nightly torment, that there ego you better know well, cause thats the ugly mug you’d be likely to please every day of your life.
The fool either represents a major choice on your life path, or the confusion that result from conflicting opinions. Either way the change both beg is choice. To choose be change, and change bespoke intent. Intent be done, the fool has gone, and change become.
The journey through life we intend to share be more than that, more more than having fun, more than just a laugh.
And thus the fool become the will of change he wants, the master in the mirror.
“We’re all faced throughout our lives with agonizing decisions, moral choices. Some are on a grand scale, most of these choices are on lesser points. But we define ourselves by the choices we have made. We are, in fact, the sum total of our choices. Events unfold so unpredictably, so unfairly. Human happiness does not seem to be included in the design of creation. It is only we, with our capacity to love that give meaning to the indifferent universe. And yet, most human beings seem to have the ability to keep trying and even try to find joy from simple things, like their family, their work, and from the hope that future generations might understand more.”—Crimes and Misdemeanors, by Woody Allen.

I guess its happened to you before, that way back where you’d hardly expect to find a warning to be found, you heard a nagging voice that whispered somethings wrong, and you by luck or fate ignored it all along until you end in serendipity. <br/><br/>
Some catch on and quickly find the trick to make their journey click, while some carry with them countless opportunities for learn and growth, but never quite seem to get it until right the end. While some could tell you of their marvel at the way things are, most would say that based on what went wrong so far, its no small wonder they survive at all. Many really don’t.<br/><br/>
Survival is the means we have to seize the moment, make the choice at hand and move on to the next. Its best believed as fun and play and shared with honesty and glee. That way most of it is done in half the time you’d think, and much of it with smiling faces all around. Some approach it cautiously, the fear of failure ever present in their history, and nothing less than fear expected now and to the end. Some would call the glass half empty, some would say half full. To some their cup runneth over.<br/><br/>
I kid you not, it all depends on what’s your point of view. How you decide to look at life define what you’d expect, and since reality conspire to provide the playground of our choice, it should make sense to choose it well before you join the fray of living day to day with what you want than rather with what you’ve got. As for what you need I can safely say that With nature’s tried and tested way of matching kind to place, adapting through diversity, and give in kind has left you without need. Perfectly prepared to choose, and with a lifetime of experience to know the thrill of new discovery, to see the opportunity and recognize the feelings that you like, nature has a pretty good idea of what you’re in for and what not.<br/><br/>
Whats left for us to do is caring, sharing, having fun, and listening to what our bodies tell us far as nourishment, rest, giving every opportunity to be in measure with the verve and vigor we put in. Since every one of us is who we are because of what has been, the nagging voice we hear should hardly come as a surprise the times we choose to win or be the best, when all along we’ve been prepared to live in harmony with life. When we act to void, deny, lie, despair or try to change the way the way things are, we need to heed the feeling of wrong, leave our proof of innocence and worth behind, keep our cool and choose a leap of faith for common good.
“Whether people first hear about the two kinds of perception and two kinds of judgment as children, high school students, parents or grandparents, the richer development of their own type can be a rewarding adventure for the rest of their lives.”—
“The area of epigenetics has found that individual characteristics like health, personality, taste, appearance and sexuality is determined by our genes, and the chemical, environmental, and hormonal switches that regulate their expression.”—National Geographic
“It takes a single decision to begin a marriage, and a lifetime of choices to keep it together. To raise a family takes a village, the result of your choice, and the worth of the choices you make.”—Young Love
With military might, radical societal surgery and brutal social engineering and slaves, the Romans created a world divided, a people to imitate living in a self serving society without any hope or belief in any self worth. An artificial collective that look down on diversity with disgust, frown at anything strange or new, and feared other cultures as a threat to their our own.
The legacy of their reign ociety left with irrational fear of anything that remotely resemble change, that obtusely refuse to accept that there’s any value to the experience we’ve had if it doesn’t come with some kind of reward. Something tangible that can be exchanged for personal comfort or social standing.
Up to this day there is still in the mind of the western world the unspoken rule, the unquestionable common belief, and the objectionable social ill that is glaring to all but a cursory view, but nearly invisible to the public eye.
We are still under rule of a utilitarian society, expecting the final say to be made by divine decree, and more on our knees than prayer can ever reward. We are stuck with a collective consciousness that suffered generations of false assumption, systematic and deliberate indoctrination to the nature of living, the whole idea of success and the way we look at what we do, our duty, and the minimum return on investment we expect as reward.
To this day we still look at any original thought with alarm and suspicion, and think of justice as something best left to oneself.
A common mistake is to think about live as a package, while the truth is quite the opposite. The way we know it, life is composed of equal measure emotion and experience, that combine in time and awareness.
Even though both share the same time line of experience in awareness, combine in memory to sensibility, and readily bend to the active expression of intent, they are completely independent of one another, absolute time opposites as far as their effect and affect, and totally different to manage if you aiming for a healthy old age, or ending a day well spent.
As with anything worth achieving,finding self actualisation takes a little practice, but if you haven’t been feeling yourself for some time, chances are you will experience a dramatic change almost right off the bat.
Looking back at my own journey I must admit to often pulling back in startle at the apparent confusion that seem to reign following a different point of view, but I personally find that a conscious reminder that nothing less is to be expected calms me down enough to take a deep breath, and saviour the delight of having chanced on an original perspective.
The trick about it is having enough confidence in your perception to know what you like, the determination to hold on to a positive point of view, the conviction that intention leading to choice is worth change, and a growing conviction that life is worth living.
Life experience is a lot like fishing. You throw out the bait you choose, weary and wait for a nibble, and if you time it just right you catch your self a something that hooks. With a bit of practice and skill you are almost guarenteed to end up with your blood boiling with the thrill and satisfaction of play, and a fish to boast or feed or barter to boot.
The emotion you felt doing it become just a side note to awareness, but remain as a crucial experience in laying to rest on a day well spent. Such is the power of choice and play, that our tummy be hungry, yet our soul be satisfied in the nature of our experience.
