I am trying to do meditation in the mornings. Yes, yoga Noah Bikhram as I will now refer to myself. During these times I am trying not to think about anything. BUT, I did have this thought about closing and opening my eyes.
So many times we are at our office or in the “cube” or out drinking with friends and just living. Nothing crazy. I guess we are open to what’s happening at the present time but maybe lacking awareness of ourselves. What does this mean? I think for me I kind of expected that one day I will open my eyes one day and will have:
- a great wife (who loves burritos or can make them really well)
- 2 cool kids who are child prodigies from excessive training
- great success in business
- close and rewarding relationships
- and a garden filled with basil, tomatoes and garlic (my new hobby)…
Maybe it dawned on me this morning that it doesn’t just happen. You live it. Your life. Your choices that you make. Mine included for the good or bad. Life has a lot of similarities to the movie Titanic. We all know the ending but we still paid $10 maybe a few times to see it (myself not included:)). I guess we like the details, the good, the bad and everything in between. Maybe, we can choose or affect as much as possible that outcome we always pictured when we close our eyes.
I will spend more time talking about business/marketing but I think this is more personal & interesting. I am spending tons of time thinking about this and would love your opinion if you want to read more about this…
