“There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot arise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive. This ecstasy, this forgetfulness of living, comes to the artist, caught up and out of himself in a sheet of flame; it comes to the soldier, war-mad on a stricken field and refusing quarter…” Jack London, The Call of the Wild, p. 50
Has there been a time in my life where I have been ecstatic, where I have failed to recognize my life because I have been living by pure joy?
No. Not yet. ない。まだです。
Having just finished school and worrying about money, still paying off student loans, I am still concerned about what I am doing with my life. There is so much I want to do, yet I still feel like I have to wait a few years before I am able to accomplish such a wonder.
So, I have about three years planned to pay off my student loans. After this feat is finished, I want to participate in YWAM in order to learn more and more about living in relationship with God. 楽しみ！！！
So, while I am waiting, I need to discover how I can get to the summit of life.
