sure sometimes you need to work harder, sometimes less hard.
Strange new addition came to me tonight:
Time, time on this earth is another limit.
Carlos Castaneda calls that limit the warrior's best adviser.
Truly doing worthwhile things, adventure and risk and secret missions.
I'm almost 50, no need to save myself, whatever I don’t risk won’t be done ---
whatever I don’t do now, won’t be done.
Like my blog “meditation on Limits”: Strange feeling, to know that one day I have to cross over to the other side, and that there is no point to “save myself”, therefor it is time to risk it all.
If I don’t risk it voluntarily it will be taken sooner or later anyway... So better make it count.
That or cower in a corner in fear... till the time comes anyway...
Like the Lady Quohaim in the story, who crosses the flames and the abyss in the sea temple of Uraia, there is virtue in “dying”(in a sense) early, and voluntarily, and not be forced later...
“Risk it all to gain it all --- and loose it all to find it all.”
May god grant this is real and not just talk.
