The Ride

“Life ain’t always beautiful, but it’s a beautiful ride.”

-Gary Allan

The voyages of life are nothing more than its entirety. A linearly consistent process, which cannot be paused, re-winded, or fast-forwarded. Combining various aspects of the physical reality, conscious perspective, and universal essence. Subjected to the momentary placement between the domain of time, and the range of space. Interacting within the exponentially complex functions of all of energy within it. In other words, life can be a real crazy thing. There are so many forces working behind the scenes in perfect natural harmony, just so we can have the luxury of several decades of experiences. All it takes is just one random event in space, to end all life on earth in an instant. The reality is, that any day could actually be your last.  Too many people live as if they will never die. But in turn, they will die having never lived. The appreciation of all the forces working in your favor, and the gratitude for the opportunity to experience, is what fundamentally makes life worth living. Our goals, dreams, and ambitions ultimately serve as bait for the individual to be caught by its higher self. If the individual chooses to take the bait by acting upon them, they will rise to a higher plane of perspective. A plane of perspective, which brings increasing amounts of knowledge, wisdom, and fulfillment the higher it becomes. Experience is the greatest tool for knowledge. A wise man once said to me, “I can tell you what it feels like to be hit in the jaw, but you will never understand until you feel it yourself.” With each experience, good or bad, you can take away some knowledge you would never know without. With knowledge and experience combined, you will eventually gain wisdom. With wisdom, you will begin to understand certain values, and make decisions accordingly with what you know to be true. By making decisions that go with your higher self, you will in turn adjust your sails accordingly, and venture towards the destinations in which you desire. It is not about the destination or the obtainment of your desires, but the journey in which you set to get them. Nothing brings more fulfillment than being in the process of your successful journey. For once it is finally completed, there will be no more seas to sail. Enjoy the ride while you can, because the journey won’t last forever. When the winds begin to blow, and the skies begin to hail, seek great wisdom as you go, and set the better sail.
