CHAPTER TWO - Leonard Cohen
whos the happiest in the world?
i think i like 'away' more than awake in that sentence
thank you for your words. me too, away. a way. not sure animals or trees 'believe'. they simply 'are' and thats probably what allows them to be happy.
From a different perspective memory and intelligence can be very Beautiful...
I'm happy as a human for now.
The secret is choosing which memories to focus on and not dwelling too much on the negative.
We've grown from so many experiences, many very positive ones, memories resting like shipwrecks in our subconscious oceans.
I do believe that negative experiences can generate much fuller happier experiences in contrast...
mmm yes,,, its all relative,,,and ive seen recently in my friend a very strong example of how a certain amount of difficulty is essential for growing as much as we can and being as full and compassionate as we can be... i gues too much difficulty could grind us down but as they say, where there's a break down theres a break through....
i have been feeling very content in recent days... a little bit loved and not lonely. walking the streets just now i tracked down a smell that i associate nostalgecally with childhood times in spain...warmth...comfortable and tree like..
i have just thought...there is only one way that something can leave/exit and that it for it to arrive in the first place. there is no exit without arrival...?
I love it, when there's a sudden outbreak of hard rain in a forest or a park, and then the sun comes out. Theres a certain humidity, freshness in the air as the water starts to evaporate, everything's been hydrated.
pressing rewind would do it ;)
thanks jack...i enjoyed our writting
