Misplaced passions...

Among all the things that i'd like to believe i am which is also briefly mentioned here, i wonder how much of it i truly have the courage to live through.

There is one thing to live life, going about the regular job, making a huge deal about proposals not made on time, deadlines not met, scheduled expectations not managed and the entire works. And its quite another thing to look upto yourself, with a certain amount of awe because you truly believe that there lies within you, things that you are capable of doing which truly add value to you as a person, which enriches life in aspects that touch deeper than the comfort of a plush home or the luxury car.

It struck me last night, when after a 13 hour day at work, it struck me as odd, when an old familiar tune played on the record and i left dinner to dance, to just turn off the lights and dance ....in the dark. Its a rapturous feeling, things that come close or move me enough is waking up in the wilderness and watch the sun-rise while shivering from the cold, or running in the rain soaked to the bone. Reading a friends blog here is something that further fueled the thoughts,
Ashes and Snow, the works of Gregory Colbert. Its odd, because i have witnessed that odd spark in me, the nonchalance to renounce, and yet i carry on a life without passions. This is perhaps the first step towards a life less ordinary...acknowledgement.

I also look in wonder and hope visiting your site...and find one so diversified...vagabond...energetic,generous...vaccilating...and one is bound to be...
There are so many 'I's within us always competing with and overpowering one another...
Why to identify with any one....?
As a friend said,"The more we get identified, the less we discover our true nature."
Anyway,the way we are living ,the life has become ,"something that happens to us when we are making other plans for it"...
