"To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and feel - that is the purpose of life." -The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
I don’t care what Rotten Tomatoes said - I loved The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Then again, I’m a sucker for awkward humor, underdog characters, and, of course, inspiring travel cinematography and a good quote. Here’s my take on the movie’s mantra:
• To see the world. I read this in two ways: first, with emphasis on the world - travel and experience new cultures - and, second, with emphasis on see. As Marcel Proust says, “Discovery consists not of seeking new lands, but in seeing with new eyes.”
• Things dangerous to come to. With the exception of ignoring your survival instincts, things that excite and scare you at the same time are usually good things to try. Failure isn’t as bad or as permanent as our imaginations and the fear in our hearts make it out to be.
• To see behind walls. Be curious. Dig deeper. Notice things other people overlook. Question. Open doors.
• To draw closer. Really soak things up. Embrace the world, instead of hiding from it. 
• To find each other. Recognize the oneness of all people and things, and feel at ease in this harmony. Help each other. Let people in.
• To feel. Let the highs and the lows wash over and envelope you, realizing that both have their purpose, and neither are permanent.

In the end, this quote is just another stab at the age-old question about how we should spend our short stay on this planet. Does it satisfy the question for your life? If not, what is it missing? Food for thought. :)

I basically came off my dry tumblr spell to share this beautiful picture with you all today. It is easy to wear our labels, our past failures, to feel a victim to the obstacles of life which drain on our precious energy-but know that is not you, but garments of conditioning. Strip free, pour into yourself love and let it rest on your tongue when you share whatever sweeps through your mind. Clean yourself of judgement. In physical and spiritual form you are an eternal gift, an ancient gathering of exotic elements that is blessed with consciousness, and therefore blessed to tell, dance, transform each moment into a story. The universe is as wise as these myths which we leak into the soil, peaks and vast skies. Be well friends, and do not let any unconscious illusions steal you of your grace.
