I think if I could get you to do one thing
I would say that when you get to the point that you… really feel, highly motivated, to — towards
keeping your virtue… then you’ll you’ll discover quite quickly
how extraordinary a life was meant to be, could be and it’s, it’s just we get so messy, it’s
not that we are doing lots of wrong things, our mind is so messy
we don’t keep it simple and we end up making the life that we are
living, so in-ordinarily complicated completely unnecessarily, and it’s such a
shame to end up feeling, in a real muddle, when actually, you ought to be having the
time of your lives it doesn’t actually take very much to make
the deepest part of us incredibly happy. you know?
just to be here, just to appreciate. appreciate being here. to feel that you’re alive. to be in touch with your heart. that’s it. that’s it. it takes mindfulness to come to a human life
and then above that, it takes mindfulness and virtue, to come to a fortunate human life the chance to be part of this happens briefly
the invitation is not to show how inventive and imaginative you are. but how much you can notice what you’re already
part of. and appreciate it and share it, and care about
those that are around look out for their welfare while you are looking out for your
own, that’s it. and then you’ll get to the end of it, having
had an awesome time. knowing, that that was something you’d recommend
to others. ah.
you all know. you already know this place inside, where
it’s alright. you all know that when you let the ego go,
it’s not this black hole that you jump into you all know it. why can’t we do it?
and yet the world is creaking under the strain of this in-ordinarily complicated mass of
humanity and actually you know, it’s really simple when you came here,
you came here with a sense of awe and wonder, dying to just see what it’s about. you know, it’s like, what would it be like?
to be down there? to be part of it?
and you came here with a sense of wonder, and somehow the wonder of it wasn’t enough
and we stopped wondering and started to wonder about ourselves. and in your wondering about yourself, you
forgot what you came here for, what you came to be a part of.
