If you could choose one moment...
    #1664112 - 06/26/03 11:43 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

The Swam shows his syrupy-sweet romantic side...

If you could choose one moment from your life to live for all eternity what would it be?

Mine would not be one of high adventure, erotica, excitement or in a drug ecstacy. No it would be a simple quiet moment.

My lady and I had gone whale-watching off the coast of San Diego. I was semi-bored with the whole thing. My girlfriend however, giggled and squealed like a little girl though she was approaching her fifth decade. Her enthusiasm and excitement sparked me. Each sighting was filled with fresh awe and wonder as we watched the magnicient beasts break the surface on their way to the mating grounds in Mexico. As we headed back in, the sun was setting and the wind was getting a little colder. I leaned back into my love and she wrapped her arms around me from behind. For that one single moment, the world stopped. For the first time ever, I felt truly at home. I was enveloped in a deep sense of peace and contentment. I knew that I was safe and loved beyond measure.


--------------------



The proof is in the pudding.

There are no past memories that stand out in my mind in comparison to the present. No point at which I would wish to go back to when I am here in the present.

Though I am only 22...
My moment is yet to come?


--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

wow, this is a hard one, you made me realize that I have more that a magic moment in my life thanks for that.

But if I have to choose one, will be when I was 11 years old.
I was in the boy scouts in Argentina, we had climbed a small mountain and decided to stay the night there with out tents, we were sleeping all bunched up like puppies in our sleeping bags, I woke up and open my eyes and so that starry night, it was so indescribably beautiful I looked around and there were some goats a few feet away, I could have swear that it was also looking at the sky, I was so overwhelm with feeling, at such beauty that I cried and uttered the words thank you God for my life.

well, if I were to pick a moment to spend eternity in, that would be like some folks' idea of heaven, right? I haven't experienced anything I could consider 'heaven' yet. I would have to pick being drunk or something of that sort, which is chemical pleasure and not the real thing...

I can't choose between the day Neil Armstrong walked on the moon (which I watched, 9 years old, on lousy black-and-white television), or the day the Berlin Wall was torn down, or the day when I had some mushroom tea and saw that there is more to conscious existance than living a life as a human.

But spontaneously, I think I'd choose anything that involves breasts :smile:

i used to live in san marcos, ca....there  was a girl i was involved with at the time....my first true love you could say...my memory would be the time sitting on the beach watching the sunset over the ocean with her, we had a bottle of wine and a blanket and she looked extra amazing, i felt so comfortable, love pervading from everything, everything was perfect for those few hours. :smirk:

sometimes I feel like this is god's moment, like there was a question of how ought reality to exist and this (and all of our individual moments) are the decision. like this is the answer to theodicy; this is the in between place that god and his girlfriend and chill in an look at whales.

For me it would be an ecstactic expansive moment which followed my first experience with sex, love, & pot which I can't begin to verbalize. ...but it was special, and everything in the cosmos just felt right...

Swami how old are you?

i don't know what part of my life i would live for ever with. Probibily with a girl i knew along time ago name shannon. It pisses me off on how i never told her that i really liked her. It seems to happen so often i don't act, to tell women things and it ends up to be too late. ... ill learn though

I'd live forever in yesterday..  Yesterday was truly a grand day!
I was over at my girls house, and we were laying on the couch, watching movies.  We weren't making out or anything like that - I was on my back, she was laying with one leg draped over top of me with her hand resting on my chest...  I can still smell her hair!

*sigh*

I can't wait till Friday! :wink:

Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.

Yeah, I love moments in which the world just seems perfect. I've got a couple I can remember right now. About a year ago me and my ex-girlfriend were lying in bed, earlier she put those glow in the dark stars all over my ceiling, and we had just had sex and were really happy. She made the constilation pegasus, the big dipper, and a few random ass stars. We just giggled and talked about the stars and then she asked me to tell her a story then I told her the story of the first time we met, it was alot of fun. More recently, me and my friends were flying down a major highway on our bikes, going like 130 and it was like 90 degrees, was so much fun. And most recently, I remember taking a break at work, and me and the guys were just eating mcdonalds. They all started speaking spanish, and I barely understand it so I just laid back and looked at the sun shining through the leaves, it just seemed so peaceful and perfect, it sucked that once they finished eating I had to get back to work.

I love how girls smell, theres nothing more intoxicating.

Why do I feel like my most beautiful moments were the ones when I felt the most lost... ?


I love how smells can bring back those moments. Nostalgic whiffs.
A collage of imagery of moments when you were so decidedly experiencing life, (for better or for worse), you were there.


I can still feel her all the time... I just choose not to.

That night we dropped together and really kissed for the first time after being friends for so long. So magical... I'm lying in the middle of the road at night staring up at the stars, with her beautiful face hovering over mine, smiling and speaking beautiful things to me.

having sex by my bedroom window as the sun went down and we both shared a joint. thinking "this is perfect. this is where I am."

then my first real online Quake deathmatch.

hanging out with my older brother

realizing how much my dad cares about me

the ocean.

acid. tool. guitar. sweet revelation.

hugging my mom after such a long period of distance.

my first real moshpit experience. I felt the mental walls shatter.

the band. forging eternity for a couple hours every week. leaving the planet for that moment, lost in endless cascades of rhythm.
always remaining sacred.



thanks swami

Nothing could ever satisfy that criteria in me, i dont think.
Which sorta scares me. Perhaps, im too idealistic. I mean, i had great times in my life, but, i feel like the only satisfactory answer would involve something really ostentatious or outta-dis-world.

One moment?
How long is this moment?

Your question has created a mental traffic jam in my head.

What about that one time I....? Girlfriends... girlfriends... think of all the good times with them... which was best? Maybe childhood... too many to sort through... pick something else... dammit... torture, pure torture... okay, think.... THINK... which moment have I experienced would I want to last forever? *plays a quick game of pool*

Got it, I think.

When I was 15... off-road dirt biking, with "the guys"... camping out in the middle of Ocala National Forest... waking up to the smell of propane, bacon, and eggs.... then hopping on our bikes and getting lost in the forest on purpose and having to find our way out by lunchtime... finding that opening in the treeline and nailing the throttle... racing my brother up the fire trail... floating across the tips of the sand bumps... rocketing off of nature's ramps... rocks flying up, hitting my chest and arms, but the adrenaline postpones all pain.... no thoughts... beast and machine have merged into one organism... gas... brake... clutch... lean in... shift down... more brake... more lean... now gas... clutch/shift up... more gas... brrrrrrrrrrr... go go GO...
And then repeating the whole episode after lunch.

Yeah, that's my moment. I'd live there forever.

Heheh... Moment is a funny word if you think about it.

Moment.  Heheh.

Many good moments, with girls and without.  Loved driving my car listening to my nice stereo with a friend or two, packed with girls dancing along having a great time.    :lol:
