Tove Holmgren är sjuksköterskan med en brinnande passion för brädsport. I fjärde avsnittet av serien Live Fully Now ser vi Kristoffer Triumf och Tove prata om att kombinera livet på akutmottagningen med vintersurf på Torö stenstrand.
Talet Live Fully Now skrevs av filosofen Alan Watts och är ledmotivet i vår senaste film för nya Volvo V90 Cross Country.
TALET “LIVE FULLY NOW”
My goodness, don’t you remember when you went first to school?
You went to kindergarten. And in kindergarten, the idea was to push along so that you could get into first grade. And then push along so that you could get into second grade, third grade and so on,
Going up and up.
And then you went to high school and this was a great transition in life.
And now the pressure is being put on, you must get ahead, you must go up the grades, and finally be good enough to get to college.
And then when you get to college, you’re still going step-by-step, up to the great moment in which you’re ready to go out into the world.
And then when you get out into this famous world comes the struggle for success in profession or business.
And then, suddenly, when you are about forty or forty-five years old in the middle life, you wake up one day and say… Huh? I’ve arrived.
And while as I said it is of tremendous use for us to be able look ahead and to plan, there is no use planning for a future, which when you get to it and it becomes a present, you won’t be there.
You’ll be living in some other future which hasn’t yet arrived. And so in this way one is never able actually to inherit and enjoy the fruits of one’s actions.
You can’t live at all,
unless you can live fully,
