Re: Drumming: the spiritual side
"Last night before practice my _________ and I had a great discussion about life and relationships. We were discussing the concept of love, and how that means letting go of your own self-identity and letting your ego disappear. Not easy.
While I was _______, I tried to let go of my ego entirely. I was definitely in the moment- not worrying about________ "correctly." Not getting mad at myself or anybody else. Just existing in that moment, and really enjoying the crap out of it. Pretty liberating."
I have taken out some key words of your OP and one can plug in almost any activity or life situation. I think as one gets older, this is the situation in life. It's called sharing, prioritizing, and being part of the whole and not just the one.
