Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river

or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.

burdened by the projections of the future,
you go on living - at the minimum.
You dont live at the maximum.

the dust that you have collected in the past,
the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young.
Your whole life becomes a flame,
and a flame without any smoke.
That is what awareness is.
- Osho
