Living and Loving LIfe

August 23, 2011

This past year I chose to work VERY hard  in an effort to pay off some debt.  Was it worth it?  I don’t think so.  I spent all  my energy and attention chasing dollars rather then focusing on what I love and what I am good at.   Now at the end of the year I find my personal relationships have suffered, my energy is sapped, my studio is a disaster, and no progress has been made towards a fulfilling, creative career.  The below quote summarizes this.

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity answered 

“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

 I am uplifted by this breakthrough.
