On Beauty and Templating

Regain the freedom to create like a child. (Josh Waitzkin)


Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“How can I beautify any day?”

“The day is but a string of moments. Beautify as many as possible.”

“How can I beautify any moment?”

Have a system for it.

For instance you can create a practical template [<link; medium read]. 

Start with the fixed part of the template – the framework. Something like:

Being
Meaning
Feeling
Doing

And then start adding your (idiosyncratic) details:

Being

Presence
Connection

Meaning

Identity
– Life-Artist / Creator 

Connect with your Inner-Artist/Child.”

“But I’m not an artist.”

Everybody’s an Artist. They’ve just forgotten it.

Meaning

Meta-Values [<link; short read]
– Love
– Play
– Gratitude
– Simplicity
– Balance

Purpose / Ikigai (expressed with one word)
– Connect 

Feeling

Joy
Fun

Doing

Creating
Moving
Learning

That’s your moment-to-moment map. The tendency (or at least my tendency) is to add a lot of details to it, but the goal is to have as few as possible.

Eliminate all but the most powerful ones.

The Meaning part represents the Macro level. 

SEE the Macro in the Micro [<link; medium read] of the moment.

Moment to moment to moment, seek to align the Doing with the Meaning through the Being and the Feeling.”
