I love seeing passionate people. They really turn me on. (*smiling*) Seeing someone else light up over something (even if I can’t completely relate to it) illuminates the whole idea of being alive. Sometimes I think, “oh, this being a human being thing is silly. What’s it all about? I’m tired of playing in this form (Aimee as a physical body). I want to move on to something more…” but then I can’t answer it. Something more what? Something more interesting? Life is interesting. Something more real? Being a human can feel pretty real. Something more beautiful? Beauty is everywhere, if one chooses to see it. So what then? And why not get passionate about something, anything. Have fun with it & go all out! Let it light you up & those around you.
What lights you up?
What do you love?
What is important to you?
What is fun to share with others, or keep all to yourself?
For me it’s really simple. I love being with my thoughts. I love having space to think. I love having the freedom to just be. One of my very favorite things to do is spend hours in a cafe. Sometimes I write for my blog, sometimes I make notes about ideas I have or changes I want to create in my life, sometimes I just sit, sit & watch people. Often I pick a cafe for the music they are playing. I like to listen to the music that the barista & the staff are playing. It tells me a little about them, & it also says something about me. I like noticing what I respond to, what I like. But to get back to the point, I think this ‘alone-time in a cafe’ or ‘space to think’ just boils down to being. I feel the same excitement about sunbathing on the roof, or camping trips alone, or being up in the middle of the night when it’s still & silent, or spending lunchtime in the park lying on the grass as I snack away on something. It’s all the same really. It’s being passionate about being & simply loving it. So I guess the next time I have an “oh, this being a human being thing is silly. What’s it all about? I’m tired of playing in this form” thought, I can just remember that I am passionate about many things, & one of those things is being.
