Currie's Gratitude 21 September 2013

The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering. [Ben Okri] 

It is a remarkable thing, our creative capability. I’ve often overlooked the magic of BEing creative. I’ve even called it an imposition and let it overwhelm me. On the other hand, I know it has saved me, time and again, something both gratifying and humbling.

We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone. [Orson Welles] 

While that might at first seem unnecessarily harsh, I think it is simply true. Without love and friendship, Life is rather hollow. Those who touch us and those we touch make all the difference in a Life.

What matters is to live in the present, live now, for every moment is now. It is your thoughts and acts of the moment that create your future. The outline of your future path already exists, for you created its pattern by your past. [Sai Baba] 

This one thing, all by itself, is  the most significant realisation I have had in all my Life. Now truly is all I ever have. It is all too easy to BElieve otherwise… 

I love you, Currie
