Other people may stand in judgement of us, but if we have not fulfilled their expectation and have fulfilled our expectation then we were successful. The London Olympics has just happened every athlete that participated has been rewarded, every steward, spectator, worker and volunteer contributed towards an amazing historical event. Every person who contributed gained something.
People will talk about this event for years to come the collective mind, the collective body and the collective spirit of the world came together for this event and from this alchemy new life force/s was created.
An international event like the Olympics is no more important than getting out of bed and getting washed and dressed. Where one is a collective desire the other is a personal desire.
Personal alchemy where mind, body and spirit come together for a desired event or sequence of events is an achievement and as such it matters not the level attained. Each level reached will open new doors with new beginnings to explore.
Definition of Alchemy. Alchemy is the art of liberating parts of the Cosmos from temporal existence and achieving perfection.
