This week's question asks:

What do you hope to experience by the end of your life?

Take a few moments to contemplate what you want to experience by the end of this lifetime. Share what you uncover with the community. There are no right or wrong answers; simply share whatever yearnings you observe in mind, body, or heart.

This question was adapted from 20 Mindful Questions to Ask Yourself.

Beginning the 100 day challenge is allowing me to slow down.  By the end of this life I want to have mastered the art of slow living, taking one day at a time and noticing how everyday brings something new to see, hear, smell, touch.

To reflect on this week's question: I hope that by the end of my life I have found my 'place' so to speak. That I have integrated all the different dimensions of who 'I' am and that I have uncovered a deep peace within myself and within the world.

Hope is make-believe fiction, craving / grasping for succor, an obscuration to clarity, an emotional indulgence, a flight from actuality and ‘all-about-me’ (even if the hope is for someone else). Elder cultures warned against it. The ruling class conditions us to it and exploits it. I don’t recommend making it a habit. Best to note it when it flares up and not attach to it / enable it  / be dragged around by it.
