whatever happened to your comment.  I quoted it & as I usually do after it is quoted I delete to shorten the comments.  Yours disappeared.  Repeat if you choose.I don't know why it just preserved the part it did.
yeah your editing and my editing collided

... & this is about the story you tell yourself as you are doing something.

Which, the movie or 17832 ?

woopse, i think i got it, this is not about the movie TRANCENDENCE, rather it is about this song which is about "the story you tell yourself as you are doing something". 


close enough ... was the Title any clue?

After the fact is more like excuses, rationale, spin ......

Yep.  Stories after the fact are about what you and the people around you did.  Many times they are excuses, rational, and spin to make what happened appear in a desired way. 
Some might call that lying. Others might recognize that lying is valid - just an expression of the way one wishes things were.

for a while the quote function just copied the date-time thingy & not the content of the comment.  I rebooted & it seems OK now.

I like the YouTube video as well for the One Direction song Story of My Life. Seems tzu with the lyrics & this item.

Music is Art which is participation in the Spiritual World according to RS - still looking for the quote ref which I ran into the other day researching something else.

well sometimes it would be lying ... other times I actually believe that what is happening or what happened actually is happening/happened just exactly as stated in the story, at least from the point of view of what is telling the story ... other times it might be more a story written to create that which the story states to happen or be believed to exist.  In those cases there is no element of deceit and hence no lying. 
Yep, that's your story & I presume you are sticking to it!

well, "any story will do" is not how i judge the stories i tell myself.  some are distinctly better than others.
Yep . That one is good too!

Without any notion of truth it is all story.

... well, as you know i have a very distinct "notion" of truth.  Nevertheless to me it is not "all story" for there is what i actually do and what others actually do. 
Yep, some people have a particular strong investment in their story. Some days I do, somedays I don't. The less I do the more I am creative in being alive.

yeah i didn't have time or private sound space to listen to the song ... but its on my agenda.   and incidentally i am serious about the fact that any story will not do ... rather some are distinctly better than others.
YEP, I see you are sticking to it!


yep as far as that goes.   Will just any story do for you?
Naturally one's self & Ego make the choice. My distinction is between a story & what's so. Some can't tell the difference since M$M, TV, education, ......... will tell you enticing stories e.g. political correctness . The point of this item is mainly to notice & catch yourself telling yourself a story about what you are now doing.  #InstantSelfieNOWAutobiographyMaterial.

Most verbal stuff is just story.

Well I personally do not presume to be able to know exactly "what's so" ... so to me i can't discern a distinction that makes a real difference to me between your way and my way.  

And yes i watch myself making up stories about what i am doing, what i did, and what i plan or want or intend to do.   What i also notice is that what i actually do almost never feels like what the story was about.  That is one of the reasons i said this morning, "I believe that i must anchor myself in what i actually do in the world".  That makes for a better match.   But it is a degree and timing thingy which is best not submitted to binary scrutiny.

for the moment, yes .  i do seem to require an on going story even though it changes and evolves from time to time ... and do not really know how to live without one.  in a way, the better the story, the better my life.  in other words, if i don't perceive that i am living the story i believe i am living, then i feel my life sucks.

IMHO ( which is neither ) You are always living the story you believe you are living!  Me too!  The Universe may have a different opinion.

Well timing is King here ... so there is the moment where I discover that the story does not match the experience ... what do I do then? ... change the story, or change the experience, or lie about the discrepancy to myself and others?   in the latter case i would feel my life sucks.  But my life does not suck .
Maybe ..... or something else!

i really do not know what your are saying here, nor why you are saying it, nor  why it feels kewl ... kind of vague and i do not know what it refers to.  yet i am curious ... maybe you will tell me ... maybe you will not.
Well ... your comment conveys to me the exact meaning of the title of this item.
good work a changing story, any story now or later personal or cosmic will do. The fun part is the NOW story or maybe NOW itself.  For me this item's culmination was in my participation in the music - got an emotional epiphany which only I can experience.  You may be able to find one of your own - maybe not.
