Nothing but what we do.You are all powerful over your life.If you think you must chose between dream or love,then very probably it will be so.If you do believe that you can live both,then it will be this way.
Because if you do believe in something,whatever it is,you have your chance with it.

Hmm... I don't think I agree with the Trooper idea of "we are here for a good time, not a long time". Time is relative for one thing, compared to the age of the universe we are not here a long time at all... but compared to fruitfly we are here for eons.

As for a good time, I would agree with the idea we are here with the ultimate goal of happiness - maybe it's just me, but usually "good times" are rather brief moments of exceptional happiness - similar to a sugar high - once you start to come down it goes quickly.

Hmm that sounds kind of depressing.

I think that to know happiness, you have to live its counterbalance. Like anything, in order to appreciate what you have you must know what it's like not to have it.

My 95-year-old aunt is the happiest person I know, mostly because she has the willpower and the fortitude to think to herself, when she's unhappy, "Snap out of it - it's good to be alive." Hopefully it's an attitude that develops with age!

Hmmm, tough one there E......

Think with your one true heart, not with the "lower" heart" or "second brain (for men)".

Huh? You saying there's an alternative???

thanks for the compliments everybody, this is just one of the unending riptides of philosophy that are born of my.. intuitive or instinctual, nature. (not quite sure)but anyway,

Tina- its interesting to think about the love and dream at the same time. your right it would take something special.. it seems like you and your boy have it, and the thought of that makes me so happy. (im kinda goin through somethign a bit like that, but not really. i dun feel like explaining it would take foreva.)

phil- that seems true to me as well, in its own respect. its hard to love someone and leave them to chase a dream, simply becuae you would find yourself thinking about them alot and wondering if you chose right or whatnot. i guess thats why tina said it would take somethin' special

Kris- I hear ya loud an clear. we're on the same wavelength bud. and i know what you mean, i catch myself thinkin with my dick way too often. its frustrating cuz its like trying to fight against yourself. ah well. and i have to keep myself in line from rushing a dream or love.. but im pretty good with the dream, but love, ah im just too affectionate, i do rush it a bit.

brendan- its wierd to think about, really. i guess its more or less just nature, human nature, but nature itself. thats why its so hard to stop thinkin wit ya dick sometimes. but i think ive come to understand more lately to accept and be happy about my.. drive, rather than fight it all the time. but that may be cuza some shit from my past.

CC- i love you and your tendency to 'scrump like bunnies' hahaha thats effin gold. if it makes you happy an feels right, then whats wrong wit it? everyone's got their way of doin things, and the only thing wrong is not doin so your own way.

Jason- couldn'tve said it better in so few words. im with you, i been pursuing my own path since the day i could, and i wouldn't have it any other way (even if it is obscure and may not make sense to others)

oddysseas- that is true, too.. it is all relative, all what you make of it. the only problem is if your love feels the same..

B (again)- i dont know why, but just about most all things make me happy. just walking out a building and looking at the sky makes me incomprehensibly content. and i ihave moments that seem more amazing than others, usually with my friends. but it all makes me happy, becuase im so damn appreciative to be alive and have my own fuure to make.

ok, that was long. im loving the feedback guys. my only wish is that i could let people in to see just how i feel rather than having to communicate it with silly words. i liek to be around theperson so i can feel it rather than hear or read it. but if only things were that good. ah well. i love you all sooo much. peace!

Two years ago, I had some big decisions to make. It took me two years to come to grips with them. Some friends told me "it's time for you to go fly". Almost like they were saying goodbye to me. So far it's just myself, but things get complicated with someone else in your life. Very few people understand that. Good post. You'll figure it out. Good luck.

Tway - Good point about the balance of happiness and it's counterpoint. One cannot exist with out the other. Hmmm I think my brain is melting...

So perhaps the persuit of happiness is short sighted... to be truely content, one must pursue balance.

Even - I know what you mean when your brain stops doing the thinking. A basic and raw animal nature takes over, I don't know about going with it though... could land some law-suits on a person.

man.. i really miss such a straight-forward thread...remember those days I used to struggle to "leave things behind me and off"???

I thought i would leave but hey now I am still on TP now...i dream to set myself free and yet, my dream told me to stay and see...now i get a better understanding about my family and vision gets wiser and wider...i still can go pursuiting my dream some day if I never let myself down and i still live as long as I enjoy my life... like gazing upon the azure sky or lying on the grass sketching the silhoutte of the as white as cotton clouds...birds chirping ...people laughing at you...

Heart gets full so easily everyday!
