A Fortunate Human Life
from Burgs by Mt. Wolf
I think if I could get you to do one thing…
I would say that when you get to the point that you…really feel, highly motivated, to, just, towards keeping your virtue…
then you’ll, you’ll discover quite quickly how extraordinary a life was meant to be, could be and it’s — it’s just that we get so messy, it’s not that we are doing lots of wrong things, it’s our mind that is so messy.
WE DON’T KEEP IT SIMPLE
and we end up making the life that we are living, so in-ordinarily complicated and completely unnecessarily, and it’s such a shame to end up feeling, in a real muddle, when actually, you ought to be having the time of your lives.
It doesn’t actually take very much to make the deepest part of us incredibly happy.
just to be here, just to appreciate.
to appreciate being here.
to feel that you’re alive.
to be in touch with your heart.
that’s it. that’s it!
it takes mindfulness to come to a human life…
…and then above that, it takes mindfulness and virtue, to come to a fortunate human life.
the chance to be part of this happens briefly –
the invitation is not to show how inventive and imaginative you are.
but how much you can notice what you’re already part of —
and appreciate it
and share it,
and care about those that are around you – look out for their welfare – while you are looking out for your own, that’s it.
and then you’ll get to the end of it, having had an awesome time.
knowing that, life –
