And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
as I try to discover that self actualized person that can do the best with the attributes (strengths and weaknesses) that he has
I look out at the ocean and wonder about my future...
can I let my dreams become reality without them becoming my master??..
jet take off with it's engine totally tuned to tip top shape
where will this flight take us??
I feel others have their dream mixed in with their post avatar depression (after watching the film)
they might wish for a younger healthier body
with the ability to fly to places where they have never been..
looking for experiences that are absolutely wonderful
away from their daily mundanity....
I have been reading this blog about achieving prosperity It used a quote from this book by Joseph Cambell
The hero encounters tests and helpers.
The hero is forced to make allies and enemies in the special world, and to pass certain tests and challenges that are part of his training. In STAR WARS, the cantina is the setting for the forging of an important alliance with Han Solo, and the start of an important enmity with Jabba The Hut. Frodo and Sam faced their first test and found some good allies when they met up with Merry and Pippen and then were almost found by the Black Riders. In CASABLANCA, Rick's Cafe is the setting for the "alliances and enmities" phase, and in many westerns it's the saloon where these relationships are established"
currently, I certainly am going through more tests and challenges in my short life than I have ever had...I am learning to find the very few folks that will accept me into their "tribe" as I accept them into my friendship/acquaintance realm .....the surf club has definitely tested me physically, and especially with how much intestinal fortitude and mental perseverance I can have...
just for the chance to be a volunteer lifeguard and compete for my own self esteem and desire for self worth... do I subconciously desire to be a hero when I save a life in the rough seas knowing that I will be there as fast as anyone to help them before they drown...
