Life is not meant to be boring, wasting away on a dull 9-5 job or doing chores mechanically.
It is mean to be a beautiful painting and you, the master painter is in charge of its beauty and creativity.
Life is only lived once.
Why waste it on gossip, peer pressure, keeping up with the Joneses or excessive spending to the point of being in debt?
You don’t need to consume or spend in order to be happy.
Instead be a producer (rather than a consumer), create and spend time in Nature and you will see you can be really happy with less “stuff”.
March to your own tune and heart.
Because if you do, you will see great stuff happening in your life.
Trust the flow. Listen to your heart.
As the famous Joseph Campbell said: ” If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living.
Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”
Here is another beautiful quote from William Reilly:
“The greatest satisfaction you can obtain from life is your pleasure in producing, in your own individual way, something of value to your fellowmen. That is creative living!
When we consider that each of us has only one life to live, isn’t it rather tragic to find men and women, with brains capable of comprehending the stars and the planets, talking about the weather; men and women, with hands capable of creating works of art, using those hands only for routine tasks; men and women, capable of independent thought, using their minds as a bowling-alley for popular ideas; men and women, capable of greatness, wallowing in mediocrity; men and women, capable of self-expression, slowly dying a mental death while they babble the confused monotone of the mob?
For you, life can be a succession of glorious adventures. Or it can be a monotonous bore.
Take your choice! ” ~William Reilly
