thestampedetrail ... for one day, with my bones too weak, muscle to sore, my mind to weary to desire new horizons... But, my bones are strong, muscle to ripe, mind to supple, I will gaze over the stars, search for truth amongst them & fall asleep under them... #adventure #love #thetrivialpursuitofhappiness 2d

thestampedetrail ... Contentment: a state of happiness and satisfaction... Happiness: is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy... Satisfaction: a. The fulfilment or gratification of a desire, need, or appetite... therefore, I think "contentment", being a noun (state), can only be achieved by "doing" the things we love, in a place we love, with the people we love which formulates positive or pleasant emotions, in a hope to achieve something - fulfillment or gratification. Therefore, as it is defined, only by "doing" is the opportunity to feel contentment presented because "doing" is the only way to "done"... However, is contentment a resting state? Life being cyclic - do we ever just set up camp and admire the rest of the range without any intent of looking upon the range in wonder from another peak?
As long as the sun rises & I have air in my lungs, I don't think I'll ever forfeit my climbing gear... or, is love the only mountain in the range of contentment that satisfies the pursuit of happiness?

thestampedetrail ... something's in life are more valuable than others. We live in between those moments of choice - between the past & the future, of what we've done and what we'd like to get done; only to be left with what we do. The past an anchor - the future an anchor - of disenchantment, & of expectation. Both do not allow for a complete state of enjoyment or to share in a connection of what we truly are. This kid always lets me do that. We are born on the same day. He makes me feel like royalty. #jan20 #thetrivialpursuitofhappiness 2w

thestampedetrail ... "Because I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested in only the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man. You'll see that there is life in the desert, that there are stars in the heavens, and that tribesman fight because they are part of the human race. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we're living right now." 3w

thestampedetrail ... I haven't been this drawn to a book since I read Into the Wild. I've only read 30 pages & it's fast becoming my favourite. Who'd have thought? Excited about stories & the discoveries we make deep within our soul when it connects with its sensory counterpart. Beautiful.
to @zubi_cafes for providing the finest Alamanda to fuel the excitement. If you haven't tried it, I implore you - long black at its finest & an assembly of words in an order that evokes a dragon of emotion within you & a knight in your mind to fight it.

thestampedetrail ... "You experience the world through five primary senses; visual (sight), auditory (hearing), tactile (touch), olfactory (smell), and gustatory (taste). But you do not take these impressions directly, objectively, as they are. They pass through multilayered filters, coloured and often distorted by your interpretations, expectations, assumptions, beliefs, associations, fears, desires and opinions.... Thus, for example, you don't see or hear or taste. You see a barren or sad or interesting sight; you hear glorious or disappointing music; you taste delicious or bland food... Reality becomes your reality; what is becomes replaced by what you think it is.
A key principle to taming your mind is that reality is not what you think."

thestampedetrail ... Sometimes I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear / And I cant help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear take the wheel and steer / It's driven me before, it seems to have a vague
haunting mass appeal / Lately I'm beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there / With open arms and open eyes yeah / Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there
So if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive / Will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive, oh oh / It's driven me before, it seems to be the way that everyone else gets around / Lately, I'm beginning to find that when I drive myself, my light is found
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there / With open arms and open eyes yeah / Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there
Would you choose water over wine / Hold the wheel and drive
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there / With open arms and open eyes yeah / Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there...
