Can you imagine a satisfying life apart from going/doing/having/getting? Just being? Being just as we are? Just so? At ease with ourselves and our place in our life? What bills would we run up like that? How much would it take to live like that? It would destroy the economy. Seriously. The economy is fueled by our life style. It depends on our living the way we live. It craves our living the way we live. The economy is dependent upon us. It is addicted to us And feeds on us feeding on it by continually, endlessly, creating in us the needs it so gluttonously satisfies. The economy cannot afford for us to be content. What would it take for you to be content? To live out of your own creativity and curiosity? To be at peace? Balanced, harmonious? Doing what you say needs doing, the way it needs to be done? In your own time? Just being you?
There are no solutions in sight. Or anywhere else. We are stuck, as always, with making the best of it. And, we need all the help we can get. Where do you go for help? What helps you with all you have to deal with? How often to you take advantage of the help that is available to you? The kind of help we need, across the board, around the world, is a perspective shift. That is the only thing that stands between us and being able to handle what is ours to handle. How do we change our mind about what's what and what is ours to do about it? Here is the truth about everyone's situation: This is the way things are, and this is what we can do about it, and that's that. That is the way things are. What are you going to do about that? Changing our mind about what is ours to do flips the script and settles us into the Sisyphean Task of getting up again and doing again all that can be done with what is before us in each situation as it arises all our life long. Don't want to do it any more? Change your mind about it, and get in there and do your thing as best you can and let that be that again! Out live what you don't like about your life! That is all there is to it! Breathe!
