The Meaning of Life

Lisa's Tai Chi

Shit happens.

No more, no less, 

Shit just is.

So roll with it.

 

The Tao of Questy ... 

When you are relaxed are you experiencing the calm before the storm, or the eye of the storm?

To appreciate life is to appreciate the journey, to be at peace with life is to accept each destination as a rest stop before a journey.

True wisdom is not in knowing the answers, but in knowing which questions are important, and in knowing which questions are best left unanswered.

The last line of a dialogue from the book "Stranger in a Strange Land" by Robert Heinlein ends with this sentence: "The only religious opinion I feel sure of is this: self-awareness in not just a bunch of amino acids bumping together."

I can not always put what I am trying to say into words., but I still feel sure of my journey even though I do not have a clear destination in mind.

To those who want the world to be equal, think there should be no losers, no winners. That's not life. It has nothing to do with fairness, it just is, it is what it is, it is life.

Even though I can not always put what I am trying to say into words.
I feel sure of my journey
even though I do not have a clear destination in mind.

So what is wisdom?
Wisdom is the intersection of knowledge and experience.
Wisdom is not always knowing what to say,
Its knowing when to speak up, and when to shut up.

To love and laughter,
To old time rock and roll and all time philosophy,
To enjoying being the best at what ever enlightens you........

To those who want the world to be equal,
think there should be no losers, no winners. That's not life.
It has nothing to do with fairness, it just is, it is what it is, it is life.

Ashes can't be burnt, rubble can't be ruined,
It was a time when nothing seemed to matter,
it was a time when everything seemed to have a purpose,

It was the best of times it was the worst of times.
A time when I felt so tired I thought I would die,
A time I had so much energy, I felt I could fly,

You know that you can make it, you know you'll stand the strain.
It's wisdom born of anguish, it's knowledge born of pain.

Try a little wisdom, it lasts a little longer.
What doesn't kill you, is gonna make you stronger.

I'm no longer the person I used to be, but now I am the person I was.
