" Live out of your imagination

not your history "

Stephen R. Covey

Just over a year and a half ago Damh the Bard suggested we create a podcast for The Order of Bards Ovates & Druids. I was dubious about whether it would have any success, being an old stick-in-the-mud who didn’t quite understand what a podcast could do. Within a few months over 2,000 people were regularly listening to the show.

The other day I listened to episode 19 as I drove in the Autumn sun to Glastonbury. The show Damh had put together is so good I’d like to share it with you here:

Quote for the Day – from Science Fiction

October 27th, 2008

Secret? There is no secret. Anyone with eyes can see the way to live. By watching life, observing nature, and cooperating with it. Making common cause with the process of existence. By living life for itself, don’t you see? Deriving pleasure from the gift of pure being. Life is its own answer. Accept it and enjoy it day by day. Live as well as possible. Expect no more. Destroy nothing, humble nothing, look for fault in nothing. Leave unsullied and untouched all that is beautiful. Hold that which lives in all reverence. For life is given by the sovereign of our universe; given to be savored, to be luxuriated in, to be respected. But that’s no secret. You’re intelligent. You know as well as I what has to be done.
