A Super Bowl Super Meditation

Just this weekend I watched the Super Bowl with a couple of the guys over at my cousin's place. Obviously, since we were practically all from NJ, we rooted for the Giants.

Personally, I never followed football. And to be honest, I never really saw the point of it to begin with. But for some reason, this Super Bowl actually had me enthralled. Maybe I'm starting to get it and maybe I'm not, but last Sunday's experience brought up a good point when it comes to living life.

Yes, people have their favorites and some things can be person's cup of tea, while other things can't. There's nothing wrong with that. But the point is, whether you may prefer one thing over the other, the secret to life is finding some degree of joy in everything no matter how "not you" that thing might be. This of course comes with exceptions, like one shouldn't try to find joy in senseless evil and such. And of course, this doesn't mean that you should always pretend that everything in the world is beautiful, while turning a blind eye to the things that are wrong with it.

But taking this ideal in, while being realistic ad practical, is a real healthy practice to learn. Too bad, I'm still a long way from learning it. GO GIANTS!!!
