Tee's the truth...

“Don’t just exist. Live.”

Saw this on a Tantra tee-shirt some time back. It got me thinking. I mean really hard. Until a certain point in time, during our formative years, we live. We really live life. Then begins the vicious cycle of doing something in life. Achieving something. Getting there. And doing what? After getting there I mean. And do we really get there? Cuz any goal is really the starting point for another race. Expectations rise. It’s like that mime show where these guys try to pick a hat but their foot always kicks it first, so they just keep following the hat, never really able to pick it up at all.

We work so hard to earn enough and feed our loved ones, our families. Then once we reach that financial summit, work takes another form. It becomes a journey, a kind of challenge to excel at. Ok, I made the big bucks, I have got all the materialistic comforts. I’ve worked up the ladder. Then you look down. Boy, what a ladder! You’re entire life has gone right by. Whoosh! Like that. And then you take a moment and think, ‘heck I’ve been so busy trying to earn the means by which to live, I’ve ended up just existing.” That’s when you stop existing. And start wearing tee shirts with philosophy printed on both sides.

I could go on rambling, but you see the problem is, I have a document to worry about. See you folks. And remember to wear those tee shirts. You never now, you just might inspire someone to live.
