Ecstasy is something higher, or further out, than ordinary pleasure… its achievement requires a particular discipline and skill that is comparable to the art of sailing. We do not resist the vibrations, pulses, and rhythms of nature, just as the yachtsman does not resist the wind. But he knows how to manage his sails and, therefore, can use the wind to go wherever he wishes. The art of life, as we see it, is navigation.” ~Alan Watts
I don’t want to fight the flow anymore. I want to grow. I want to float with the currents and the ups and downs of life. I want it to be sexy, interesting, pleasant. I want to be able to glide without fear of the waves. I’m in management training: soon I will master the art of using the wind to go wherever I wish.
