Soooo….for my photography class I made a book (actually a few books..maybe I’ll share the others too..but I actually like this one). So if you would like to check it out, here’s the link! It’s on street photography in San Jose and San Francisco. It’s called Urban Life!
“I think your 20s are the hardest part of life. I mean, everyone goes on about how hard it is to be a teenager, but actually I think it’s tougher to be in your 20s because you’re expected to be a grownup and expected to earn your own living and be successful and I think you feel like a kid still.”—
So tonight was Pref Night…of my senior year of college. I knew I wanted to do a pref night speech at night….like during the after party. It’s now 2:20am and I just got back.
So I know I’m not good at public speaking or getting my words out right, but I still wanted to talk. I let everyone know that before I actually started my disorganized, shaky, rambly, and awkward speech. So here’s a bit more organized version of what I actually wanted to get out…
“A plant is not thinking: Tomorrow I will put a new leaf to the north and then next week when it rains I will grow a meter taller. Its existence is just unfolding out of itself spontaneously, naturally, unplanned. Similarly, your true life unfolds in the same way but you are unaware of it because you allow your mind to imagine fanciful ways of being and then pursue your projections. Like this, you began thinking and strategising your existence rather than simply experiencing your natural being. We cannot breathe tomorrows, breath today. Therefore, knowing this, leave your existence to existence and start enjoying your cosmic play. Best of all, don’t try to be anything at all. This is a secret few recognize.”—Mooji (via dyslecix)
