    Not bad. Close to the mark. I like it. In this modern world of yours I like to read the lyrics along with the tune. Be careful with all this “go for it” stuff though. It’s good in one sense, but it comes close to promoting to a willfulness that can lead to irritation when things don’t go as planned. The irritation can kill you. A friend recently mentioned his frustration with “chaos” getting in the way of his plans, to which I replied, saying that “chaos” may simply be your human inability to fully grasp cause and effect, plus the elements of chance in a universe that’s constantly in motion. I like the analogy of two toddlers playing catch on the edge of a cliff. YOU may know what’s about to happen, but they may be completely oblivious. All of us are those two toddlers in some fashion, at one time or another. The missing element is quiet awareness. Our brains (either as predator or prey) naturally key in to notice motion, yes? If you’re constantly in motion yourself, you may miss an important development or fact because of your lack of motion relative to it. You might even miss your own behaivior and motives. From a state of “maximum stillness”, though, you’re more likely to notice what’s in motion around you. Buddha and Einstein both spoke of this, but from different perspectives, and they were both on to something.
