    The journey being life, what have you discovered that you never expected to... Could be a musician, actor, a movie, a type of food, a thought, a realisation, a religion, a thing about your personality or an emotion, a particular song... it could be anything really...

    What have you discovered?

    I've discovered that I don't know jack shit.

    I have learned to take a minute and smell the roses. To look for the positive things in life and people instead of always jump to the negative. This is still an on=going learning experience since 22 + years of always looking for the negative is not easy to purge.

    I think of how negative as a Witness I used to be and talk about all the horrible things going on in the world. But there is MUCH MORE positive things going on.

    And I'm with GBL....I don't know Jack shite.

    Seriously, I have discovered that if I don't know: if there is no judgment, or mental interpretation, or comparison with past, or reference to a future desire --then, this present moment cane be extremely wonderful all by itself.

    I have discovered that I am not who I thought I was, and that has made all the difference in the world in how life is lived and experienced. With this discovery is the realization that THIS is all there is, and without the 'me' to muck it up THIS very moment is perfection itself - what a relief!

    i've learned my spirituality , my personality , my acheviements, dont have to be measured by what others do or have done.. its measured by my own abilities and standards.

    i have higher priorities than having good publisher card stats.

    The more I learn, the less I know.

    The deeper I search for answers the farther I get from the answer.

    I'll never have enough time to learn all of the things that I want, or to see all of the places I haven't been.

    kind of depressing sometimes when I think about it
