Life’s Journey


A wiser man than I once said that life is not speed, it is resistance. Never mind how fast you get to where you want to be, but focus on how well you live along the way. Ignore the illusions spawned by commercial indoctrination and seek to be a good person to both yourself and others.


Ultimately; it’s better to live a soulful, mindful and explored life rather than simply race towards instant gratification and manufactured happiness. Many people seem to be entirely focused on bouncing around aimlessly obeying what society and their peers dictate to them, instead of finding their own honest path to a life fulfilled.


Life’s journey is not always easy, but then again the best things never are. If we stumble along the way then it’s simply a matter of standing up to go on walking. Be strong of will, clear of purpose and loving in intent.


From that perspective, another wise man once said that the good life is inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Therefore, we must earnestly balance ourselves between our own hearts and minds to actively journey towards our best life.


If along the way we also find a perfect traveling companion then we are the better for it.
