Celebration Optimization 2
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“I’ve been thinking of ways to optimize my celebration practice [<link; medium length].”
“You’re constantly optimizing things.”
“I simply love doing it. For me Optimization is a value in itself, and a form of self-expression.”
“What are your latest optimizations?”
“Firstly, I made it part of my Embodiment practice by making every celebration embodied. I call it Embodied Celebration, or ECelebration [<link; medium] for short. Whenever I celebrate, I also connect with my beautiful BodyMind.
Secondly, I started calling it Loving Celebration [<link; short]. This way, whenever I mentally access it, I access Love as well.
Thirdly, whenever I celebrate I connect with my Future-Self by saying to myself,
I love you Dani-who-I will-be.
“Do you keep it generic, or do you bring to mind a specific time in the future?”
“A specific time: the end of my life. Whenever I celebrate, I think ‘Memento mori’, and bring to mind the image of myself on my deathbed.“
“Precisely the point. It’s meant to powerfully emphasize the meaning of my actions.”
