Live in the service of your original nature, bringing your gifts/genius/daemon/shtick/virtues to life within the circumstances of your living in each situation as it arises, in doing what needs to be done, where it needs to be done, when it needs to be done, how it needs to be done, because it needs to be done-- for the joy of doing it, and the satisfaction of having done it, situation by situation, for as long as you are alive. It is for this that we have been born, and for this that we live all the days of our life. To fail to serve our original nature is to miss the point of being here, now. For that there is no exoneration or absolution. only regret and contrition without consolation. We lived without being alive in the time and place of our living.
The interpretation of experience is the meaning of experience. Saying what's what is one thing. Being right about it is another. Experience must be experienced as dynamic, fluid, flowing, evolving, transforming, moving, moving, moving... Experience is a dance with life, living, being alive. Alan Watts asked Joseph Campbell, "Joe, what form does your yoga take?" Campbell replied, "I underline passages." Lao Tzu said, "The path that can be discerned as a path is not a reliable path." Jesus said, "The spirit is like the wind that blows where it will." Nailing things down with explanations, definitions, analytics, exactitude and precision misses the heart of the matter by saying what cannot be said. Live to dance with your life, going where the music takes you, not-knowing way more than you know. Way, way, more.
We live to discover what is important-- to know what is important and be right about it-- and to live out of our own authority in doing what is important, where it needs to be done, when it needs to be done, the way it needs to be done, because it needs to be done, for the joy of doing it and the satisfaction of having done it, in each situation as it arises. all our life long. That is all there is to it. What's the problem?
