If one decides to live life to its full potential, and not just skirt around the edges, then before too long may come the awareness that one of life’s major lessons is in how to toughen up. The more resilient that you becomes, the more life throws at you… and on and on it goes.
Eventually comes the realisation that the composite of life and life’s products, that which we think of as existence, is just a pussy cat making lion noises.
Pursue truth. To gain a truth in any aspect of life, no matter how humble, is to be granted a key to all other aspects. Reality is interrelated and thus the essence of any truth is woven throughout the fabric of existence. The aggregation of truths is the senior purpose of life. Truths are not hidden; you are making them hard to find.
To find truth, follow ideas, not leaders.
Your integrity is the state of you, and your life. Never compromise it. Integrity is derived from the Latin for ‘wholeness’. It is who you are underneath your social veneer and quiet fears. It is also another word for spirituality. When you defile your own integrity, your own wholeness, it is an act of self-harm on the spiritual level.
Life beats one around the head from time to time; there are heartbreaks and losses. Journeys are not of the same duration and neither do they take the same path. But, armed with integrity and truth, and the certainty of one’s own journey, there is so much love and excitement and sheer joy.
What an adventure.
What a great life.
