Living life as an adventure

Life as an adventure…What exactly does this mean?  Well. I looked up adventure in the dictionary and this is what it says:  “There’s an element of uncertainty in adventure.”

Human beings seem to want certainty… we want the security of knowing what to expect each day.  Yet at the same time we long for the adventure of the unknown.  And we are envious of anyone who is adventurous.  When I ran away from home at the age of 30, left my husband, my beautiful home, my ten year teaching career and moved to a new city where I knew no-one, had no job, and no place to stay, my friends were envious.  Well, some of them actually thought I was crazy but mostly they wished they could do that.

We all love exploring new lands, we’re drawn to sports like sky-diving, skiing, mountain climbing, that have some element of uncertainty and even danger.  Even the thought of jumping out of an airplane is exciting, exhilarating, or swooshing down a fresh, pristine mountain slope where no-one has ever been before.  Goosebumps just thinking about it.

What is it about adventure that draws us?  Perhaps it is that in that moment of daring adventure, face to face with the danger of the unknown, this is when we experience aliveness, when we experience our true nature of ever expanding newness.  And this is all we really live for…to realize our true being.

Meditation is an inner adventure, into your soul, your subconscious mind, infinite realms of  consciousness, infinite worlds there to explore.  Let meditation be your way of life, let the adventure of life bring you aliveness…then eventually all of life becomes a grand and wonderful adventure.  because everything is seen newly… freshly, because you are reborn in each moment.
