Time share....

A recurring theme; the ongoing tussle between all the competing demands upon that most precious of resources.
It's not hard to see,  why so many religions and philosophies come up with the idea of an afterlife,  or indeed multiple lives.
Elsewise; how will we ever get to fit it all in?
So build an agroecological farmlet;  because feeding people well seems like a reasonable undertaking....
But just as it takes a village to raise a child,  so it takes a community to build a farm.  To do the physical work,  of course,  but also to support with money, and goodwill.
Then there's that all the essential 'joined up'  yoga to practice and share....
There is only one way to do it, and that's to put the time in.
And then joining up with others to make more of the good stuff happen.
Collective minds,  and sharing of knowledge, bouncing ideas about. Evolution through revolution...
And of course, the wanderlusty itchful feet that need to be attended to on occasion... There are wonderful places, and people beyond the valley edges,  that can inspire and instruct.
Not forgetting all the friends, and family who need reminding from time to time how important they are....
So finding a balance, time shared between the roles of settler,  nomad,  warrior, and creator.
Whilst making space for recreation...
Literally the 'remaking'....
Which can take the form of 'proper' meditation,  or a few moments staring into space; if the body can't always go 'a wandering'  Then the mind,  through memory,  or its own storytelling; can go wherever it chooses..

Stories,  those that we tell each other, or the ones we narrate to ourselves will always be an important way of explaining,  or understanding how we fit in,  to the grander scheme of things...

Not so much what are we here for?
More; how do we invest our precious time to best effect whilst we are here?
So much, and so many,  to see and do.
Whilst making sure that none of it is taken too seriously.... Life is far too important to take all the fun out of it...
