RAISON de VIVRE
Reason To Live
Because we simply cheated ourselves the whole way down the line.
We thought of life by analogy with a journey, with a pilgrimage, which had a serious purpose at that end, and the thing was to get to that thing at that end.
Success, or whatever it is, or maybe heaven after you’re dead.
But we missed the point the whole way along.
It was a musical thing, and you were supposed to sing or to dance while the music was being played.”
To live a settled existance. not bothering to predict.
Prediction of the future is but a pre-occupation with time, resulting in a tormented life not realising how beautiful we really are.
The unconscious radar aka the 'trouble shoooter', is always on lookout for disaster.
This breeds a general feeling man is Born to Trouble.
But this is ignoring how marvelously we are actually getting on.
As, for most of the time, our physical organs are in a fantastically harmonious relationship.
Our body relates by all sort of unconcious responses to the physical environment.
So that if you became aware of these spontaneous adjustment processes consciously and unconsciously,
you would find yourself in the middle of great music!
A mystical experience in the realisation of your true relationship to the universe.
Underlying it all, a fundemental state of Bliss.
So, why, how is there anything going on at all?
If it is all a drag fundamentally, then everything would have committed suicide already.
