“The first half of life is devoted to forming a healthy ego, the second half is going inward and letting go of it.”C. G. Jung
i don't know if any of you saw the recent movie , the secret life of walter mitty
i don't think i would have except i heard it had some amazing scenery of iceland
a place i will be visiting late summer
a scene from that movie really struck a cord with me
a famous photojournalist had journeyed far and wide through very difficult terrain to capture a once in a lifetime event on film
he arrived in perfect time and then just sat their completely absorbed by the moment
without his camera
when asked why he "missed it", meaning didn't film it
he said something about how it would have ruined the experience for him.
this really struck a cord with me
i want to throw away my ego, go inward, experience and live
oh and today just so happens to be my birthday.
love to all
