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.

“That’s intense.”

“Precisely the point. It’s meant to powerfully emphasize the meaning of my actions.”

    This isn’t about this post, it was just the only way I could think of to get your attention.

    I came across your post from about a year ago on the CommonBook and I found it fascinating. I had a similar but much vaguer idea a few months back so finding your articulated version was exactly what I needed.

    Anyway, getting to the point, at the end of that post you mentioned you intended to actually build it. So two things: 1) how far have you got with its development since, and 2) I have a few ideas of my own.

    If you’re interested in hearing them or even just talking one on one about your own ideas, please email me at jaisenjaise@gmail.com, I’d love to work on this with you. Otherwise, feel free to ignore.
