You're All In...

and there's nothing you can do about it.

The thing about being alive is… At any rate in which you play your life: you’re all in. 

In the end, wherever you end up, it’s going to kill you to be alive. There’s no way around your mortality, so you might as well make something profound out of yourself, right?

The state of human reality

Let’s go over this again: You’re already two feet into your own grave (I’m not trying to be morbid). It happened the same minute you were born. They made it a no money back, no returns or exchanges guarantee the second they pulled you out of the cozy dark dungeon you were incubating in.

This is an irreverent revelation, to know we cannot go back, we have only one choice as time slips us by… the path of being all in. Now that I think of it this way I can’t help but wonder “Why not me?”. 

Why not me? why not you? To be prolific humans in the cosmos of all of existence… we’re already all in on those whole ‘living’ debacle, so why not make something of this state of commitment that we cannot do anything about… why not make something wonderous of ourselves that others can admire? Something that we can admire.

Might as well make something profound, right?

The questions above lead us here, to the “might as well, right?” aptitude about profundity.

To be truthful, last week I wrote about “Just having fun”, and although I think fun is a large component of life, it’s not all of it: there are bits of the life puzzle that can only be found in sorting through obscurity, traversing through a lack of fun or excitement.

The profound bits are found not just in the fun, not just in the boring, but in all walks of our “all in” lives.

In reality who we want to be and who we are, if they are not aligned, is — more often than not —  about a lack of profoundness in our current existences. If we want to be great we must act as such, that makes sense: right?

How do we get to make something profound in our lives or of our lives? 

I think the answer goes something like this:

To be profound we must try a lot of things, do a lot of things, and ask a lot of questions: all in the name of seeking feedback through each medium. We use all of the answers and experiences we collect as information on how we can do things differently (possibly in a better way, possibly adding up to something profound).

There is a lot of ‘possibly’ noted here because it’s really hard to know in each of our own ways what is possible: the only real way to make such a profound discovery is to try, and you might as well try since you’re already ‘all in’ and all…

That’s all for today my friend. Thank you so much for reading.
