It’s been about 3 weeks since summer started and I am just starting to feel settled in. This summer is my first real summer as an adult. I am working 9-5 hours and have responsibilities than extend beyond just caring for myself.
Summer is a weird time of year, because technically, I have oodles of time, but I always feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to accomplish what I want to do. I want to start learning guitar, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I want to organize my records and my closet, but I feel like I never have the time. It’s weird.
Even though I feel like I haven’t done anything, I actually have been fairly productive. I started learning ukelele and learning how to meditate. I’ve continued to read for pleasure and to expand my knowledge and I’ve made some money at a new job. Why do I feel like I haven’t done anything? It’s weird.
My life and personality is so multi-dimensional that it is necessary for me to take a step back and look at my life. I think this is a really useful skill.
The Hindu religion fascinates me because one of its guiding principales is that you are not your physical body. You are the spirit within and you are not a new life form, you’re reincarnated from many other recycled bodies.
I think in my life I sometimes pay for things my past life form did, but I am willing to accept that, because I think that those quirks are what makes life interesting.
I think this song has really profound lyrics that can appeal to anyone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4G2RlBKbrM
