Born to be Wild

“Get your motor runnin’

Head out on the highway

Lookin’ for adventure

And whatever comes our way

Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen

Take the world in a love embrace

Fire all of your guns at once

And explode into space

I love adventures!  New visions, new things, ideas!  What about you?

And, of course, my next question would be “Why?”

Curiosity. Adventures take me to new places. Any type of adventure.

Could be a guided meditation, going to a new idea in my head, like an internal vision quest. Dreaming. Envisioning.

Reading another’s words, a different take on a subject, to stimulate my thought patterns. Finding new words. Learning a new perspective. Seeing something with different eyes.

Hearing a new way to say something.

Or it could be an external vision quest, when I go to places to stimulate my physical experience.  A road trip to experience a new place. A gallery to view art. A restaurant to taste a different way to eat or to cook something. A club to hear a band. A spa for a physical treat. A friend’s home for an alternative way of living.

A conversation with someone, or a debate, an argument. Noone is wrong. We all have our own perspective, a particular point of view. An attitude.

A feast for the senses. Treating the senses to a new experience. Smelling, tasting, touching, hearing, seeing, Sensing, participating in new things. Growth. Expansion. Excitement. Discovery!

Taking a risk, doing something dangerous even. Exploration. Inspiration.

What are the feelings you have when you make a personal discovery? What do you feel in your body? Where do you feel it? Goosebumps up and down your arm, quickened breath, feeling giddy,  a sense of wow with eyes wide open, awe, enlightenment, raised energy through your whole being. The feel of freedom and the wind whipping your hair. Exhilaration.

I like smoke and lightning

Heavy metal thunder

Racin’ with the wind

And the feelin’ that I’m under

Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen

Take the world in a love embrace

Fire all of your guns at once

And explode into space

Like a true nature’s child

We were born, born to be wild

We can climb so high

I never wanna die

Born to be wild

Remember that song? The motorcycle scene in Easy Rider?  Here…

I’ll never forget those feelings I had riding on my Harley, going down the highway, with no helmet (before helmet laws!). Hair flying behind me. Freedom. It was exhilarating. And so very in the moment. Being super present.

I get that feeling too, when I’m dancing with someone. Could be the experience of tribal bellydance and improvisation. Connection with body and spirit, having fun, creating in that moment. Making art. Expressing joy. Freedom in that moment.

Why would you not want to experience something that will excite you and raise your vibration? Expand your life experience? To help you grow and see things differently. Give you something to think about? You may not even like it, it might not be a great experience, but it gives you pause. May strengthen your resolve, and confirm what you already believe in. Or it could change your perspective. So many things. So many ways.

I thrive on the experience of expansion. On every level in my being. It really is about being in the moment to experience that ‘thing”. And allowing yourself to have that experience, right? Giving yourself permission to feel a different way. To open your eyes to feast upon something that may or may not tickle your fancy.

Sometimes it is great to experience the same thing. Repetition. Habits. Rituals and routines. And sometimes it is great to open yourself up to that newness of life.

Life. Creating diversity. Expanding. My theme song for a long time was Life, by Haddaway…as I am always on a quest for adventure!

Life, life will never be

Life, life will never be the same

Time is gettin’ cold what is going on

What is on your mind are your feelings gone

Need to see it clear where do we go

Why are you doing things all the things you do yeah
