Alrighty then....

Friday morning. cold..well as cold as it can get in Los Angeles. Looks like rain is over due, translated as snow in the mountains, which I'm destined to miss. The sun is struggling but losing, which is reflected in my own forecast for the foreseeable future. A constant balance of priority over and under importance and urgency. Poles apart but constantly pulling and stressing on each other. The things I have to do versus the things I should be doing. Sounds the same but it's not. Yet one lays the path for the other and one wrong step one way tilts the balance of the whole thing. I know this is the way of everything, and everyone. Strangely though, I am starting to see it as neither a problem nor a gift, it just is. and as with many other aspect of my life, letting my mind rest upon the way things are without trying to change them nor even trying to not to try to change them, clears away all of the fog that once secretly yet permanently sat around my experience of life.
Now, if I could only believe all that crap and live it then maybe I would feel a morsel of wisdom in my bones instead of spitting out other peoples ideas like a parrot. hahah, just kidding. Only I'm not sure which part I am kidding about.
Today my feelings are mostly Postmodern with a splash of pretentiousness.
See you later.

Wu wei is an important concept of Taoism (Daoism), that involves knowing when to act and when not to act. Another perspective to this is that "Wu Wei" means natural action - as planets revolve around the sun, they "do" this revolving, but without "doing" it; or as trees grow, they "do", but without "doing". Thus knowing when (and how) to act is not knowledge in the sense that one would think "now" is the right time to do "this", but rather just doing it, doing the natural thing.
(wikipedia - wu wei)

remember? i was thinking too much about the future and who i am and all that stuff.. i somehow managed to not think at all sometimes. if you feel stressed, just drop every thought you have and just listen to the nature and the birds and all the other furry things flying, sitting or meowing around (except ufo's, cause they obviously dont make any noise)..
i just wanted to remind you that there is a world of miracles out there, which most people don't even notice anymore cause they are too busy to open their eyes and ears..

hope that helps..
feel lovely hugged!

grab your surf board and go take on a couple of waves for an hour, that should be enough to clear anyones head for a while, we all need a break once and a while, in fact you probably all need a breather for a couple of hours :)

luv n hugs

hey jamie...
how ya doin??

i agree with
"The things I have to do versus the things I should be doing. Sounds the same but it’s not."

i often felt it,,
n now i experience it,,
u know..this is my last year @ high school,
we have a national test so we can continue to college..
there r 6 lesson we have to pass.

AS A STUDENT,,i have to study,,study n study..
i dont want to dissapointed ny parents..but
that "the things i should be doing" which is study,,was hard to built,
the things i have to do dominated my life..
hang out,,sneaking out class
stuff like that.

i still tryng to change it,,
hopefully i can control it,,n i can graduate w/ good mark
(ur song gave me spirit to study)

ps: ian should cut his hair..
we like him more with short cut or @ liberation time..



when will u come to indonesia again?
