Someone once commented on youtube video: "This is not the best scene ever, there will be other scenes, other movies."
Upon reading those words I felt, deep inside I disagreed. With all my knowledge and understanding, I knew that when you live your life to its fullest, each and every scene of your life is the best one. You cannot wait for that one perfect scene, because when it happens you'll think "There will be more scenes, this can't be the best one..." never appreciating the magic that each moment of your life holds. And then, you die. Not knowing that the best scene of your life, was each and every single one of them.
A very powerful way of looking at things for me, is to see the present moment as if it was only a memory already lived. That I already died. As if there was no future and everything that happens is already in the past. And suddenly, all the important and urgent things you have to do are gone, because in our memories, when we look back at our lives we don't see the importance or urgency of the moment. The past is stripped, at least for me, of these things. So I ask myself, did I live this moment to its fullest, without all fears and doubts. And sometimes, I feel I did not. And I'm mad about it, because I realize that still in the present moment I let some fears and doubts control me. Tears are feelings words cannot express, and that's how I feel about it. But I know, that even all those struggles, whether caused by outside or inside environment, are hell of magical moments, because it's all just an adventure. And your life really is a movie, made of wonderful scenes.
It's part of growing up and getting to know yourself. You see, if I wanted a cake, I would buy one. If I wanted another, an instilled belief that I'm wasting my money and it's really stupid took over me. But now I know I want a cake and I'm gonna have it. And if I want another, so what, I'll have it. And another if I feel like it. That it costs money? Yes, and so what? But it's such a waste of money? But money are not that important, what you experience in life is. And shall that day be remembered as the day I overate myself with cakes, because I was excited to do so. It's all that life is about to me and I find the truth in white tiger's words he ends each of his posts with: experience and enjoy.
Don't trade more exciting moments for those less exciting ones only to appear reasonable to others or self. Stop thinking you need to behave acceptably, within limitations of measures that society impose on you. Living as everyone else. Don't be realistic, because you already know that reality of each of us is different. And what realistic really means is just being true to your own illusion of life. Be a dreamer instead. Visit new places, go to a new bar, hop into your car and just drive without having a destination, stop where you like the view and drive past of the one that doesn't appeal to you. Because....

listen to the gospel of john. then you will know how jesus tried to apply it to help people by telling them the truth with love. and how they killed him from their own darkness. why do you think jesus was praying for them. (Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. http://bible.cc/luke/23-34.htm ) he was save from the second death.but they who have judged him have judge them self. (For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. http://bible.cc/matthew/7-2.htm ) they have even more darkness on them to work off before they can enter the kingdom of light.( And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.” http://www.openbible.info/topics/darkness )
they create their own hell.
"Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.
you have free will and are responsible of it. that is how you apply it in daily life.
experience and enjoy.

For me it is simplicity. Like the wind, thoughts come and go, but the memory travels with me to share when the time is right. My illusion of understanding has me confidently persuasive, when the truth of the matter is, I know very little of the truth. I enjoy this community, because it is my defense against boredom. This is my weakness. Instead of fighting boredom I should be thankful for it. If it were not for boredom I would not have sought after wisdom.
