Well, there’s life and there’s life.
There’s the life I was living and the life I am living now, sequestered upon the cliffs of Portugal, in a small village near Foz Do Lizandro.
I am actually quite grateful to have my own flat at Surf Vida. It’s been a quiet reprieve from the wilds of the Ericeira post summer pleasures.
Yet, adventures must be had and had they were.
Much of my time is spent writing, thinking, walking and meditating.
I do a lot of walking meditations.
The sky shares secrets and the breeze brings a touch of peace that I find nowhere else.
I continue to play with other human beings in the creative art of conversation.
It’s a strange thing that I am incredibly private yet I enjoy assisting others in living a beautiful life, in seeing the beauty in all that is around us, in all that is.
What’s important to me at this time?
…bringing the joy, the inspiration, and enjoying life as much as I am able and more than I am yet aware of.
It’s an understanding that goes on forever, but once you are there, you are there.
Also, the gratitude for being, for simply existing, bubbles up from within.
It’s the feeling I wish to share most with you, gratitude for being.
It’s why this site exists to begin with, to explore the unknown, but not only for the sake of exploration, but to share the experience of being alive.
I Have Been Called A Mirror Into Alternate Realities…
It’s the letting go and thus silencing forever the thoughts that create us that aren’t us, that intrigues me.
The way we move with them as if they are us, until we see that they aren’t, and then the questions speak differently, about, who we might be.
And then a strange space opens and we begin to see, that which isn’t, never could be.
Oh the mystery of co-creating realities…
Here are a few common questions I am often asked, interesting questions to ponder, for many.
Here are a few of the questions that others inquire about, asking me what my take is, what I know of them, how I can open up their eyes to seeing.
- What is genuine happiness?
- How do you know if you are making the right choice?
- Why do I feel like a fraud?
- Why can’t I choose one thing to do with my life?
- How do I stop letting other people’s opinions affect me?
- What does it mean to live a good life?
- How do I know what to do, when I have no idea what to do?
- How do I deal with death, knowing I am going to die some day?
- ( My Answer To These Questions, “You go first. And then let us see where we arrive together.” )
And the questions flow and continue…
Perhaps you saw a question of your own in that list.
It’s compassion that we begin with and the questions come next.
The path to knowing yourself is challenging, and that’s a beautiful thing.
But you will never know yourself, if you don’t allow yourself to get to know yourself.
And that process requires a willingness to experiment and most importantly to be in conversation, primarily with yourself, and sometimes with another.
By the way, the other doesn’t have to be a human being…
Audio : My Semi-Short Answers, “What Is Happiness?“…
But before you press play, I would love if you gave yourself a moment to answer the questions above, the questions, like, “What is happiness?”
I went for a walk into the darkness of the evening and I recorded an audio for you:
