Stage V

All things are transitory. All things must pass. Attachments whether to material possessions, to people, to places to name, are futile. Despite your clinging, these things will fade away.
-Hari Kunzru

And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Nothing in your life at any given moment comes with a lifetime guarantee. We’ve all heard a variation of this at least a thousand and four times before.

Being alive means feeling uncomfortable a minimum of 80% of the time. Being uncomfortable can mean growth, percentage remains uncertain.

The interesting thing is that it’s not always clear when it’s growth or just strife for the sake of strife.

Which brings this to an uncomfortable close.

It’s difficult to speculate about something you do not understand, the same way you can not have emotions for someone you’ve never met.

When engaged in the present, each moment is brand new and is open to an infinite amount of possibilities. A meteorite could hit the White House. I could spontaneously combust. Half-dollar coins could rain from the sky. All possible. The likelihood of the events are irrelevent.

Are the things I fear the most the things I secretly want?

Again, it’s difficult to speculate about something you do not understand.

Thrive today. Worry about tomorrow later.
