What I’m Hanging Hope On Today: The vitality of life is only experienced in moments that remind us of the vital components of being alive. To really live we must remain continually engaged, not with the most abstract concerns we conjure up mentally, but instead with what is truly sensational.
While we are satiated with none of our primary processes disturbed, it seems we lose awareness of the very basis from which we determine the worth of anything in the first place. If satiation persists over large spans of time, it can lead to our becoming desensitized to the continuously emerging windows of opportunity our genuine well-being depends on. The passing stresses of a deeply experienced natural existence have much to prefer over the spreading malaise that stems from life being analyzed more frequently than it’s appreciated for the rich immersion and affirmation of being it has to offer us.
They say the unexamined life is not worth living. It’s important to recognize the difference between examination and analysis. The first unveils the world around you. The latter remains fixated on problems, even those that are beyond you.
It’s gonna be okay. What do you say?
