Today is the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests in Beijing, when university students demonstrated against China’s political corruption and authoritarianism. The Chinese military cracked down with force. Photographs of the “Tank Man,” a lone guy with shopping bags who stood in the way of an advancing line of tanks, became the symbol of the protests for the rest of the world (it’s largely unfamiliar to Chinese, because it’s been censored).
The video is in Chinese, so turn down the volume and just feel it…

“… feel the joy of being alive… stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride.” – Morcheeba
In Buddhism, it is called non-attachment. When you’re not attached to any one particular outcome. When you realize that, sometimes, what you really wanted turns out looking different than what you envisioned. The shadows come in many forms. The one job that you have to get, the certain features your future wife/husband have to have… What do your shadows look like? Happiness comes when we let go of these material desires and enjoy every experience that comes into our lives, knowing that it’s exactly the experience that we’re meant to be experiencing. If that makes sense?
Just remember these powerful words, “All is as it should be.”
SO GET UP, GET OUT AND GO GET SOME!

“In order to enjoy the rainbow, you have to get through the rain.”
No matter what happens in our lives, just know that we are strong enough to get through it. The tough times are what help us grow and become more than we were before. While we’re in the storm, it might seem like things are hopeless, but when we look back, it’s easy to see why the experience was necessary at the time. The not-so-good-times teach us valuable lessons that we carry with us throughout our lives. And we get them out of the way to make room for the good times!
SO GET UP, GET OUT, AND GO GET SOME!
