How few of us have ever been as fit as we possibly could be, I mean seriously top athlete fit? Why should it just be athletes that get that joy? Everyone should be that fit in the ideal world. We could by the way we live our lives know how good that feels before we die. A little more encouragement in that direction and a little less boredom and social isolation might help, but we don't live in an ideal world. Still I think that my world, that's the world of my experience, is a lot more ideal than it has been in the past and is for many others. I've got equal rights, equal human rights and a safety net if I fall - but that isn't enough I guess to fulfill us.
People look at the end of the problems when their loved ones have crumbled into addiction; look at the beginning though, look at the moment right now. What makes us want to live well? Think about that, and I do a lot, wonder about motivation and purpose. As humans sometimes we set our goals to low so low they don't make us jump out of bed in the morning.
Everyone of us should feel the value of ourselves. How our purpose is so incredibly necessary to the whole world. Each of us has an individual value that goes way beyond GDP and our wage packet, or what we look like, wear or own. We should explore the meaning of the word 'prescious' everyday and begin to understand our true value. What is our potential? I often think if I could give the gift of value away how drug and alcohol abuse might disappear into whatever memory we have left.
Of course lives are neglected around the world and small children sleep and die on the streets and in the deserts and families struggle everywhere towards an existence, too exhausted to have dreams. Dreams are a rare currency and in them people can live again who have died, and people whose hearts have been broken can find they are whole again, people who have lost their homes or who have never had a home - can come home. I think how I can make myself valuable, how I already am. What it is I do when I don't seem to be doing much? The dogs are barking now so i'm going to take them out for a walk. It's crystal clear outside, not so inside. Others lives are so neglected because of the neglect we experience from ourselves. If I could value myself completely and recognise the treasure I hold within every morning on waking, and how much value I have for others, then there is a currency that can reach those children sleeping under bridges in India.
