Take a moment to think of the people you know who live with passion, enthusiasm, purpose, never afraid of anything. Then think of the people you know who live a very subtle, non-reactive, accepting life.
Now, think - is there anyone you know who is both?
I think that's what I want to achieve - a marriage between having a pure passion for living, and knowing solidly why I'm here, filled with purpose and meaning, while at the same time, living subtly, accepting the universe as it is and relaxing about things that I have no control over (or, really anything else for that matter).
Is that possible?
