“First, become clear what your duty or purpose is in life. Second, learn to love it.”
- Swami Rama
I write quickly, easily, and joyfully while on cardio, for 5 reasons:
- It makes my heart sing.
- It's my Dharma.
- I'm blessed that the Universe gave me this ability.
- I'm very "vata" and so Sister has a lot of energy and likes to move.
- My dad was a writer. A good writer. Smart guy. Charismatic. Very good-looking. (People stopped us regularly in public places and asked us if he was either Burt Bacharach or Paul Newman.) Was always the straw that stirred the drink at the party. (And always drank a lot of drinks at the party.)
But he was a perfectionist with a touch of OCD. Well, maybe more than a touch.
He would write and then rewrite and then rewrite and then rewrite again. It was never good enough. He would agonize over a sentence for days, weeks, months. Wow that was painful to watch.
I am the antithesis of this. Thank the Universe.
Have the BEST DAY EVER! Namaste! Taylor plus 5
