That you knew, those spacious days of cheerless youth tripping in its faults were a preparation for leadership. To vehicle the lessons across a divide and steady the course home for those behind. That you would find soon your own way calmed. How all things are focusing towards an elusive balance.

355

How golden the moments left. How precious when fewer the days become, that death soon should cut us off from our ambitions and separate us from our loved ones. How clear it is now the choices I do have, and the man I would be. How calming that knowledge, and strengthened I am.

Dose this cause you to swerve from your principles? Bring it to an end.

353

I cannot know where it is that I may be headed, only how I will get there.

352: I promise

For my time so far, I can only offer: don’t withdraw, soul. You cannot be realised alone. Surround yourself with, immerse yourself in the goodness of good people, as I have done, and you will smiling live a life serene, as I do.

Training builds authority.

They must rouse no more than a fascinated glare, the things which stir outside of me that I cannot control.

Mindfulness: An unattached attention.

Potency of focus. Sensory precision. Dynamic equivalence.

348: Patagonia part 5

We were lucky with the weather, as fine days seemed to follow us mostly everywhere we went. Though it was the middle of Summer, the temperatures were as high as 30 to mid 30’s in Santiago, then dropped to around 4 deg Celsius I think, in Ushuaia. The wind could be quite fierce at times and meeting up with rain, it made for very unpleasant trekking conditions. Lots and lots of layers needed sometimes and it was always difficult to predict, changing from one moment to the next. It really is a very special place, and probably one of the better things I have experienced in my life so far.

May a good life not fall to you, rather you forge one.
