Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
Here’s a question for you … do you think
the bee wakes up, says to himself ‘oh, crap another ten hours of flying around
collecting pollen?’ I doubt it very
much. The bee doesn’t make the distinction between ‘working’ and ‘living’ that
most people do … for the bee, it’s all just ‘living’.
Think about that …
For anyone who has lived in or travelled to
Asia, you may have noticed that many of the people there (working in markets,
cooking food, etc) are smiling, chatting, solving each other’s problems, etc –
all as they ‘earn’ their living. I think many of these people don’t see the
distinction between ‘working’ and ‘living’ that many western people see.
There’s a secret to be unearthed in this; a big lesson to be learned.
If you love what you do or you can learn to
‘live’ fully while you are doing whatever it is you are doing – it may be
possible to never ‘work’ a day in your life. In blurring the lines between what
we call ‘work’ and what we call ‘life’ – we can enrich our lives dramatically.
