Serenity
23 hours ago

Can't say I have experienced true serenity much in my life thus far, but I have come close on a number of occasions.

The funny thing is that each time was vastly different to the time before. The most recent experience being Yoga. Yoga has allowed me to connect my body and mind once more. And whilst twisting, and breathing there is no outside world. Just that move, you're breathing and nothing else. I like it allot thus far. Who cares that I may look rediculous while doing it? Not me. As long as I'm improving from class to class that's all that matters really.

Other times I got close to serenity, was for instance on my bike in the track. Where the sheer focus on every move, every action, blocks out real life and all its requirements. And all the things you still wish to happen and do.

Even more times include, rowing on the sea with little to no set purpose other than to row and experience. Skateboarding and finally nailing a move to a tee, after years to repeating the same action. Or riding my bike in a fields, with a crisp wind blowing and the sun warming your back. Climbing up a mountain, holding on for what seems to be dear life, even with a measure of safety. Doing Muay Thai, until you are close to passing out, with arms so heavy you shake in lifting them. With only a shred of energy left.

These are the things that got me close, and these are the things I will keep doing to bring out the animal in me. Sometimes I think we have lost the most important part of what it means to live. And that is to just Be. Be present. Observe. Absorb
