Saturday, June 18, 2005 live and let die

Passion must not cease to exist. Because things done out of not just interest but passion, and love, gives nothing but from itself. For it possesses not, nor would it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love. And don't think of directing the course of love. For love, will direct the course.

Through my life, I come to realise that to a certain point something that we, or rather i, might not have realised about before. Perhaps time and experience be the factors. So i happen to read somewhere about what surprises most about humankind? And that the answers are that men get bored with childhood, they rush to grow up, and then long to be children again. And that they lose their health to make money and then lose their money to restore their health. And that by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live in neither the present nor the future. And that they live as if they will never die, and die as though they had never lived.

And my friend Camus had said, "life itself is an illusion and thus it is full of dichotomy. The dualism keeps the mass unconscious of the present moment. The trick is to transcend the illusion and experience each moment as if there is nothing else to life. Now, you are beginning to see reality. Morpheus would be greeting you, 'Welcome to the real world, Neo!' And you wished you hadn't taken the blue pill. Or was it red?"
