Floating to Unity

This is my shot and if you can ignore the exit sign at the back, it will make me fell a lot better.

Getting to the mood, have you felt the floating feeling? The liberation of being free, sans regard as the French says, to do without regards. Fleeting with flow where the wave of current takes you. No use to struggle, why bother? Its nice to go along where life carries you. But then to where, there will be time this scene agrees with you then again there will be a stage when it does not. When doesn’t it agree with you, to be floating and carefree? I want that!

And I do have the answer. The stage when you dont want to be free and floating is when the tide brings you further away from your group, your family, friends and the community. The place that makes you YOU! It’s the place where you are already expressing yourself and the community knows you and loves you irregardless. So you say there’s limitation to your freedom, then take it in stages. There’s nothing big that couldn’t be broken if you started little 😉

So go float, float into unity. Fun begins in numbers!

Harmony and Happiness?

Standard

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Mahatma Gandhi

I took this picture on our way to Tofino, its a surfer’s dream place. We stopped on the road just to view the breathtaking coherence of the river with the rocks and the tress on the mountain reaching to the sky, melting the medley of a picturesque nature you would like to bask in for while.

Nature does it easy, its harmony could depict the happiness it sings to its audience. We, the capital observes, needs just to stop and listen. Witness what nature has to offer. Take the time to see what nature has to offer. It is there for the taking.

 

Us, as humans, as people, is always aspiring for the happiness. Harmony brings that about. Gandhi said it is when all the things you think, say and do comes together in a blend that compliments and jibes to a perfect rhythm then there is happiness. Easier said than done. Its the great analogy, but let’s put it in perspective. 

 

We want to make our family happy, how do we do it? We work 2-3 jobs at a time to make ends meet, have food on the table and to make sure they don’t starve and have most things provided for the family. But where are you? Are they happy you are not there? Does your thinking of the family’s happiness coincide with what you did and say? I don’t think so. What is the solution to this? This is common, I see it everywhere and once I was of them. I worry on the pre planning stages, I worry on the tomorrow, I worry for the debt, I worry . . .

 

Perspective is the answer. going down to basics, stripping bare is the key. 2-3 jobs, yes that is needed to pay the mortgage. The answer, let it go and rent. Ooops but that’s investment! Errr, invest when there’s extra not when you are killing yourself without sleep to keep the gazebo. How about debts? Oh yeah, consolidate, get a financial adviser and yeah, to its extreme, declare bankruptcy, sounds radical, but this stops the rat race. Then you know, that is the time, you can finally watch the sunset with your kids playing around you and you sipping your coffee or wine biding your time.

 

I was given an advise by a wise old friend. The family needs the basic, do not over exert your self with things. The family needs the husband and wife, if with kids, then just the mom and dad. Make it simple. You are still called a family even if you didn’t go to the Euro tour like your neighbor did last spring.

 

If you are muddled by happiness, having difficulty with harmony, stop and think then do. I did that and I’m happy. Not perfect, not affluent but happy.
