There’s a story to everything. Everything has a way that they came to be, a sort of panorama that’s impossible to escape. The truth is impossible is very cliche, apparently it’s code word for possible so when you think you’re stopping yourself you’re actually leading yourself on. I’ve been in a place where stopping is the last thing I want to do because it seals me at a standstill that blocks my horizon. The thing about horizons though is that it’s a dead end until you move, today, I realize that learning is everything.
Setting things in motion is easier than doing the reverse because naturally everything is in motion, I mean the ultimate stop button is absolute zero and that still doesn’t stop everything because time still goes on, right? Wrong? I don’t know, but what I do know is that I’m never going to find out. The truth is a lot of the things that you find out aren’t very useful, the skills that most people spend a lifetime honing barely come in handy because life doesn’t have a cheat sheet, it’s pay as you go, whether you know anything or not you can’t stop moving, it’s a constant roller coaster that makes you self aware by keeping you on edge or making you keep yourself on edge. Some people may find this bizarre but things that people know are boring, useless, the real thrill is finding out something that no one knows, it doesn’t matter whether it’s useful information or not, because to be honest that’s relative, what matters is the process, the hunt.
Looking ahead now I realize that I’ve lost my focus on the hunt one time too many, frankly, I usually lose my focus on the hunt. I forget that once I have the game I lose the drive, the rush, the first motive, I’m no longer invigorated so I’m vulnerable, weak. Life is a constant hunt and the more you focus on every single game you catch, the more you miss out on the thrills of the next hunt. Success is a line that you cross to get to the next mission, it is not a status, it is a compilation, a process that never ends and is fueled by knowledge, so next time, don’t get comfy, remember not to pause.
