To further prove that Mauritians are the best climbers there are, here's a picture of me and fellow Mauritian, Vincent Manera, outside the Central Park Tower which we had just conquered as part of today's Step Up For MS.

I went climbing with a new friend last night.

Knowing the man I'll be,
Having all my old music on shuffle, it's hard to believe anyone could move, tied up in so many limiting lyrics and mantras. "I need you", "they can't", "without you I'm nothing", "you're my all", "I'm so down".

Marc just went to a place beyond words, beyond images, beyond feelings, beyond emptiness - to a place where he already existed.

It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."
- unknown source.
The more I think, the more I think these aren't two mutually exclusive ideas. After all, we'd only follow this external God if we believe in what he's teaching, and we'd only create our internal God through what we believe.
And then from there, regardless of whether the God is inside or outside, it steers us and guides us to where we're going.
I guess the only difference is how we feel about that process.
Life ei? Full of choice and options. Let's have some fun :)

All feeling is manufactured. Will you accept any old prefabricated feelings that life has in stock? Or will you work hard, save up, and order that super-amazing custom feeling you've been wanting since you were 4?

When I think of my perfect woman, I see her clear as day.
She's beautiful and she's a fountain of love.
When she walks into a room her glow softens things, and somehow makes everything more perfect.
...Even her passions and her rages flow with a natural beauty. Her energies never end; she floats like a breeze, or like a gale - however the fancy takes her.
A constant challenge for the men in her life, she feeds their strength.
She is beauty. & I see her in my bed each morning :)

For the last 3 months I've been really getting into bodybuilding. Nothing too extreme, I just wanted to get from my skinny 70kg or so, to a beach ready, cut 85kg.
I just weighed myself for the first time this year and I'm way up to 77.5kg!! ^^
Only 12.5kg to go until I'm 90kg, so I'll be able to cut down to a nice healthy, ripped 85kg by mid year.
It's nice to work so hard everyday and really see results from your efforts. *smile*

What if the wheels fall off? What if my pedals fall off? What the frame snaps and I go flying to my peril!?
Then I remember that I've been happily riding bicycles for years and years, and it's always carried me along.
"Stop thinking about it so much and just ride it".
It made me think that perhaps it's the same with life. Sometimes I can get so caught up in theories and philosophies surrounding life that I forget to live.
"Stop thinking about it so much and just live".

In all my travels I've never found a decent 'why',
as to why anything should ever be any particular way.
When you search the 'what's' on every corner,
you only find what is.
What you see.
What you feel.
What you want.
I see a world brimming with everything.
I feel everything, and more of it is created everyday.
I want it all.

I've often commented that modern day, high quality photographs don't really sit well with me. They make me a little... uncomfortable.
How can a photograph look richer, more vivid, and more detailed than reality itself? It feels a little...'sacrilegious'.
But what is, is - i guess.
The point is, I've mentioned this to many people, and I've drawn many blank faces. Last night however, for the first time, someone understood and felt the same way.
It's really nice, to share familiar feelings :)
They recommended me "Simulacra and Simulation" by Jean Baudrillard.

and I'm here at home- musing and pondering.
To be honest it's nice to have some time apart.
Don't get me wrong, I love the girl dearly.
But this week without her is great chance to remember to love myself as well -
to be my own person, to live my own adventures,
and to follow my own dreams.
Living with someone can get very.. comfortable.
And its a danger to lose ones self in that softness and sameness.
I definately think we'll have separate wings of the house one day,
with communal spaces in between, where we can meet for dates and what not.
I'm enjoying having time, and space.
I'm enjoying it very much :)

Abd they always will.
Because I decided that whatever way things go, is the way things were meant to go for me. And that whatever it is I want in the world, is there for me if I want it.
And I know that the world is absolutely perfect. And that everything around me is absolutely wonderful and there for me to feel, taste and see.
The desert priest said - "If a man loses everything he owns does he truly lose his worth, or is it the beginning of a new and brighter birth!?".
And to be fair, I'd say it's the latter.
Goodbye forced investment and a job I don't like. Hello time for me, time for life, and time to grow. *smile*
But while that works itself out - hello happy world ;)

Be as colourful and magnificent sir, as you can or ever could - possibly be.
But what is it to be magnificent? By what measure would you judge magnificence?
Well by the capacity of the magnificent or the not-so-magnificent to drop the jaws of those who behold it my dear.
Wouldn't that depend entirely on the beholder?
Yes but are we not all of the same 'stuff'? Shouldn't we all react and act in the world just like any other person? Are we not all human?
We are all human but we are all conditioned by the environment in which we have grown. One who loves bicycles now may have hated them if she was born in some distant land, where only murderers and thieves rode bicycles. Where one person may look upon their local pizza boy as the image of all magnificence, for another those feelings may only rise for the lonely cod who swims off the shore.
So are we to be the cod or the pizza boy? To what end shall we aspire?
Aspire to nothing. You are already magnificent.
But what if I already aspire? Am I still magnificent then?
The world is your pallette, your dressing room, your library and your stage. Paint your set and costumes with the whims which guide you, choose the story which chooses you, and act my dear, just act.
