Re: Rediscovering one's "Self"

this is a GREAT thread

anybody who doesnt ask these questions hasnt really searched inside much...

oh hell yeah I was a philosopher, budhist and knew my **** when I was fresh from high school

then I got the travel bug...and started questioning again

then I got deeply religuous, then saw the world...then got deeply philosophical again

then I was getting into my late 20 and changed or found my career...then work, then travel then blah blah blah blah 6 years passed and now Im married and have a newborn

now its diapers and worrying about bills...I see myslef having a crisis in a few years, look inwards and change paths again...this time with my family...

I laugh out loud because just a few months ago...while I had my baby my first born in arms I wrote a very detailed and long letter to my confidant and spanish friend who knows me to my soul...

and it was basically titled WHO AM I? what have I become? is it me? am I still I? that sort of thing

not that sprituality or the mind is age dependant but I can say that Im a process or a couple of steps in front of you...still learning, always experiencing, always changing

as you will and as others have said you will experience

being on a boat solo, soul searching is one great gift you have...

there are many who never get the time, or day or hour or minute to even space out one second cause life is so harsh, or tough...or time consuming.

...accept that you are a truly blessed person, because just being able to think about these things means you well ARE...

cheers

Agree. Otherwise you're saying you don't want to evolve, grow, learn, hurt, feel pain and would rather stay safe and warm where that [insert #] year old used to be when life was all unicorns and Cheetos.

Don't get stuck on Thoreau as your guiding light. Remember that he burned down about 300 acres of what he based Walden woods on and nearly took out the town when he was finished.

Re: Rediscovering one's "Self"

You sound bored.

You also sound nostalgic for "life as you knew it."

Sorry...it's gone.

Re-kindle your curiosity...you'll never be bored or boring if you do.

Three rules:
Be the only person that controls your happiness.
Never lose your sense of humor.
Live a vigorous life to find its meaning.

Finally I'll say that if one of your primary gripes is that the fishing isn't as good where you are now as where you used to be you have one sweet life.

Yes he got his, as I recall teenage, girlfriend pregnant and she bailed ship. They apparently are back together now. I think the three are now running his boat as some sort of "pirate themed" day charter boat.

weird is an understatement. A bit self aggrandizing as well, and not entirely grounded to reality or truth.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
