My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
Surely there must be more :)
I agree, we were made for more then just getting up each day eating and going back to sleep.Though I would say each day is a gift just to fulfill another day.
Lovely in its simplicity of stating one’s life mission.
Yeah, but don't you think it's too simple? Rhetorical question.
agree! happiness can come from the simplest tasks of life, such as eating and breathing.
I so agree Yun Yi!
For me, fulfillment has been a long time coming. It seems like I've spent a lot of time chasing it, but never really feeling it; something was always left wanting. I've spent the last 6 months in a deep state of introspection, and what I've realized is that, for me, fulfillment is happening constantly. I don't know how to describe it, other than a profound feeling of connectedness, tempered with an appreciation of my own impermanence. It's accompanied by love, especially for my children, my husband, and my family, a love that is bittersweet. In my bones, my heart, and my mind, I am grasping my own significance in this circle of life.
I believe fulfillment is an ongoing process and when we are viewing the world with a continual sense of appreciation, wonder and awe then even simple experiences are a source of inspiration and pleasure.
In our quests for meaning and purpose, one rarely stops to wonder 'could it actually be that simple?'. What a freeing thought, NP! True, we sometimes ask too much of ourselves and others.
I agree, as long as we live life to its fullest. Still, there are times when just making it through the day seems like a major accomplishment.
"Simply by living every day one fulfills one's mission in life." Nicely put. But is it to too simple? Alf!
You didn't take my advice and joined social networks, did you? There is a user called 'aphorisms' following me on Twitter, I was suddenly glad thinking it could be you! :)Kiss the tip of your nose.
"There is no failure, only outcome" Tony Robbins. Outcome means: "mission" accomplished. Yet why did you comfort yourself thus? Probably because deep down you don't think you've accomplished your "mission"....:):)Zen? Who cares!
Marty, that is exactly what I have been trying to do for the last four months. Fortunately, things are beginning to look up!!!
That's true. For some reason, even though it's so simple, it's easier said than done.
Do you think one of thes eup every day? it seems a difficult thing to do so often. But a nice jesture.jak
