I thought I would start off my first post with my personal philosophy for the New Year.
My preferred way to live is to never stop exploring. William Blake wrote that in the universe, there are things that are known, and things that are unknown, and in between, there are doors. It is these doors that I seek to find. I believe that knowledge is a worthy enough goal to pursue for its own sake. I believe that peace is found through letting go, leaving the mind free to wander and to wonder and to accept life as a gift.
Peace to me does not mean tranquility. It means freedom, a freedom to live in accord with one’s own understanding. To be set free from those who would attempt to control my mind with rules and regulations that are designed to keep me in slavery, to make me conform, to destroy my soul and become one of the walking dead. I refuse to accept this. My fate is my own.
I believe that God is the life force that surrounds us, that flows through us and through everything on this planet. This life force goes beyond space and time and connects us one to another forever.
I am the champion of freedom and wisdom and the pursuit of a life that is free from inner conflict.
It is my intent to take care of my mind, body, and soul, and enjoy today for today without forgetting the important things in life like love, and the pursuit of happiness.
We brought in the New Year with a quiet whisper. Nothing special, just a few minutes of watching the countdown on the telly and a bottle of Asti.
So here’s to 2006 and all the adventures waiting to be had.
