yesterday I had a discussion on what it is to be oneself and to live with others. I don’t like conforming, this is boring and the opposite of life to me. But we also live with others, how does this coincide?
I put up an artistic project where I try a compromise: do something I love, but give to the Establishment something they will like, so that everyone can feel happy about it.
Now let’s see how it will go.
If making others happy doesn’t cost me my quintessential values, I can do that.
Oh, and coffee is good at Beany Green near Paddington Central.
a Sunday morning in London, and I am already out after a walk and some breathing exercises. How do acrobats find balance? They are focused and breathe correctly, I guess.
We are also acrobats in life. We need balance and movement, focus and concentration. Fear is only useful to make us act. But if we are already moving, it could get on the way. A small amount of anything is good if it isn’t too much of it.
Have you seen these people wearing virtual reality devices who think they are walking close to the edge of a high building whereas they are sitting on a couch all the way?
We don’t need that.
We need a sense of urgency in a constructive way.
There is a bridge and we will walk this bridge to the next step, towards the realisation of ourselves and our deepest desires.
So let’s breath in, breath out and find our balance in mouvement!
with things happening fast, it is important to concentrate on the slow and to do whatever enhances our objective. One important objective is enough. I am happy to have found mine. It took me some time, the last three years it was taking shape slowly but steadily. I have this artistic project. And I am looking everywhere for the best place to be to develop it!
And some resolutions: to wake up earlier in the morning, to look in one direction but to let inspiration come.
And to meet the people with whom we will walk together.
let’s shape up with a post-a-day! A friend of mine is telling me she is so busy she doesn’t have time for waxing, but I will make sure I laugh and express myself and feelings in an every day-to-day basis!
So time for waxing, laughing, exercise, and on the contrary, no time for unproductive or self-doubt thoughts.
No time for self-pity and comparisons, what do I say when I am asked, what do you do?
I do as I go.
I have a plan.
It is taking shape as I go.
What is the plan for the day?
Breathing in and out, and having coffee in the morning, in one of my favorite places.
Only cleaners on the road and construction workers are out at 7.00 am.
I also run into a friend and his family.
Oh, yes, I am going to read a poem just to change.
so what if I fall on a star, and the moon is still further away?
The first reaction is to feel unsatisfied, after all, this star was not where I was aiming for. And feel guilty. I should have done this and this and that. Or feel powerless. After all, I seem to have objectives and I don’t fulfill them as I should. And then, if I accept the result, does it make me someone who is stuck there?
Feeling bad about oneself is wasting our time.
I have tried it, it just gives you unwelcome psychosomatic annoyances.
Well, if they are changing every day you lose a sense of direction.
But they can be a little bit flexible.
How about creating exceptions and correcting our course?
Here is how it can go/
I am great anyway, and objective X is worthwhile.
I said that I would wake up at 5.30 and today I woke up at 9.00.
I needed this because last week I took a business trip and I needed time to recover.
So much the better.
Instead of feeling guilty I give myself a free day, for rest but also for taking a mental vacation out of everything and reorienting myself towards the North Star.
