Life - a series of failed experiments

“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” -- Winston Churchill

It's a disease of our time; namely instant success. (But then again what does it mean to succeed?)

If life has taught me anything it's to enjoy the moment -- the pleasure and the pain -- but not to expect anything to last longer than a few weeks (at best). Of course, we all wish we could capture that fleeting moment of bliss, and make it last forever, but the thinking mind doesn't operate that way.

My advice: fall completely into the moment, revel in the laughter, joy and sorrow and expect that no one move will bring you to a place of wholeness. In other words, and at the risk of sounding glib, it's the journey and all that it offers that's key. Goals, vision and being the best of etc, is frankly nonsense. Life doesn't work that way.

Oh, and one last thing, no guru or expert has the answer. Your life is your one and only brilliant life sand shouldn't be a mirror of someone else but lived via your own genius journey.
