Words To Live By

So there you are, out there planning, maybe, or just going by the seat of your pants, but not really thinking about where you’ll end up, because we all know that the best laid plans of mice and men, (NOT THE QUOTE) do not always bring us to some yellow brick road.

It is a curious thing, or perhaps, more precisely, we are a curious species. We take the time to make meticulous outlines of what we hope to achieve, and spend years studying the ins and outs and the how-to’s of creating, or inventing or seeking to find the way to the pursuit of happiness – because, don’t we think that achieving will bring us that elusive butterfly?

Yet, in the end, the real thruth is, as simple as breathing.
We can’t predict, ever know with certainty how something, or anything we do will turn out. This is not a treatise on don’t bother to do anything. No, it is a recommendation regardless of the time and effort put in to something to simply accept, and then move on.

What is quite interesting is that all three of my quotes happen to come from movies, (or tv shows) or books which inspired movies. In this, my third installment of 3 Quote Challenge, my final saying is, once again from a movie, and also something I seek by which to live.

The movie is The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984)
It’s a cult film, but even those obscure, weird movies can bring us words which may change the way we think, and the way we are.

Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

So, here’s the low down on this:

    So THAT’s where that quote came from. I always thought it was either the Buddha, or Tim Leary. For a time, I thought I had made it up. Because no matter where I went…there I was. And unconsciously, I knew this.
