Reflection for today…Time To Live…-Jim Morrison

17 Apr

“Time to live, time to lie, time to laugh, and time to die.

Take it easy baby.

Take it as it comes.”

Jim Morrison

This Jim Morrison reflection embodies the carpe diem/seize the day spirit. He reminds us to be more fluid and take experiences in our lives as they come. He observes that we are living life too fast and we must live at a slower pace.

It reminds me of what is going on with the pandemic. This quarantine has forced us all to reflect, meditate on our lives and slow down. Life has a different taste when we are not rushing all of the time. 

Hopefully, when this is over, you can “specialize in having fun.”

It is time to live…

I want to include this intriguing performance of the Jim Morrison ballet.

I would have loved to see it.

The Leipzig Ballet performs Jim Morrison, a ballet by Mario Schröder about the life of the poet, singer‐songwriter, and legendary rock star, Jim Morrison, set to the music of the famous rock band “The Doors”, at the Oper Leipzig.”

TAKE IT AS IT COMES LYRICS

[Chorus]
Takes it easy, baby
Take it as it comes
Don’t move too fast
And you want your love to last

Oh, you’ve been moving much too fast

[Verse 2]
Time to walk
Time to run
Time to aim your arrows
At the sun

[Chorus]
Takes it easy, baby
Take it as it comes
Don’t move too fast
And you want your love to last

Oh, you’ve been moving much too fast

[Verse 3]
Go real slow
You like it more and more
Take it as it comes
Specialize in having fun

[Chorus]
Takes it easy, baby
Take it as it comes
Don’t move too fast
And you want your love to last

Oh, you’ve been moving much too fast

[Outro]
Moving much too fast
Moving much too fast.”

Reflection for today…The Value of Money -Nikola Tesla

5 Nov

     “Money does not represent such a value as men have placed upon it.”

-Nikola Tesla

In this short video clip, Moby discusses the value of money.

He notes, “the ultimate goal in acquiring money is to have enough money so you don’t have to worry about money. 

His observation, “the best thing about money is when you don’t have to pay attention to money” is paradoxical.

It is a paradox that you can stop paying attention to money only when you have money.

This begs the question of how much money does one need to have in order to stop paying attention to it? 

{I suspect that it varies from individual  to individual}.

Moby talks about how he grew up poor and even lived in an abandoned factory in a crack neighborhood.

*It should be noted that at no point in time does he complain about the poverty he experienced.

One senses an air of gratitude from Moby for these experiences.

His humble beginnings are quite the contrast to his massive success as a musician. I believe that Moby truly deserves and enjoys his success- financial and otherwise.

His last point was that he doesn’t understand the pursuit of money for the sake of money.

Chasing money for the sake of money sounds like greed to me.

Greed

To me it seems that Moby is asking existential questions about human existence.

Specifically, he is questioning purpose and what brings happiness and satisfaction. 

He does not think that happiness is derived solely from money.

Moby Loves Animals & Is An Animal Activist…

However, Moby notes that money can improve the quality of your life.

Sociology teaches us that a person’s income and social status greatly impacts their health and quality of life.

Sadly, society is not a level playing field; hence, the vital and urgent importance of social equality is understood.

Moby invites us to define success and find happiness and satisfaction on own our terms.

Do you agree or disagree with Moby?

Why or why not?

What does success mean to you?

What brings you happiness and satisfaction in life?
