Impulse? Drive? Obsession?

Lately, I've become a bit of a polyglot. Learning several languages at once with a list of more to learn once i've reached a certain level with these first ones. It's very interesting and has made me see how most languages are so similar.
Additionally, it has nice bonuses as I pick up various histories and geographical facts and insights about the different countries.

More recently, I've suddenly also become rather obsessed with learning how to play instruments and am learning recorder, violin, guitar and keyboards. Along with this is the benefit of having to learn how to read music.

Why am I telling you this? Well, it seems to me that beyond the physicality and mundanity of learning these things, there seems to be an impulse in me to find something. Something ephereal and Core. It's like a unification of all things and in a way it's like meditation, doing without doing. Finding the heart and source, the Pulse.

Doing without doing...

It sounds like you're finding your stride rather nicely. :)

Yes, I'm rather amazed at how easy it is. Not bragging, but it seems that the more you do something, the easier it becomes. Right now I feel like a sponge. Have had similar experiences in the past, where I can learn things I'm really interested in easily, but this is more than 3 times as extreme as those past experiences were!
Gonna see if I can try to learn languages by OOBEing to the countries, like China!

Don't burn the candles at both ends but keep it up so long as this drive in you persists. :)

Don;t worry; I'm listening to my body and pacing myself. :)

Awesome! Good luck! I've been so bad at learning even the one language I want to learn. Chinese... Obes haven't really been much help in my case even being in china. :( enjoy the music too. Awesome sauce!!!
