THE FUTURE AND THE INTENTION OF DANIEL'S PROJECT

March 2021 - I quit my job. New chapter. Feeling a little insecure, but happy. I am not sure where I will be in one year and where I will be in 5 years. But I am sure - it will be great! :)
I am really interested in

  • all sorts of physical practices.

  • all sorts of cognitive development.

  • spiritual practices.

  • philosphical practices.

  • learning, because learning means growth.

Some of these can be things like hand balancing, strength training, dancing, martial arts, mindfulness and contemplative practices, literature, cold exposure and ice bathing, breathwork, games, language practices, and so on. This is just the tip of the iceberg. 

What is the meaning of life? I am pretty sure that most of you have asked this themselves at one point in life. And you are not the only ones. Many philosophers and brilliant thinkers of the past and present have tried to answer this question. I believe it is somewhere in the practices above. It is in the εἶδος (greek: Eidos - essence, formula), the interrelationships of all of these together. There could be more, but I don't know - yet. 

I have chosen the name daniel's project because:

According to PMBOK Guide 2008 (https://www.projektmagazin.de/glossarterm/projekt), a project is a "a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result." Additionally, a project is often cost-constrained.

Applied to the definition above, "I want to use the resources at my disposal, my body & mind, to create a meaningful life." Looking back onto my life when facing death and having a pleased smile on my face should be the way to go.

"On a Saturday morning in November 2020, I had a spontaneous juggling session on the Heiligengeistfeld in Hamburg before grocery shopping. It was a beautiful sunny morning and suddenly a guy came up to me, and asked "Do you mind if I take a few pictures of you? The lighting conditions are amazing". As you can see, he shot some wonderful pictures and we had an interesting conversation after. To be honest - this made my day and I still smile thinking back to that day."
