Want vs Need

Begin decreasing the conceptual emphasis on what you “need” to do and start increasing the actual doing of what you want to do. When you focus more on what you truly want and move away from the false obligations you have been persuaded to believe are necessary, you fulfil your life purpose and by extension make the world a better place. Find the balance of wants and needs. Respect the systems that are currently in place and find ways to transcend the constraints that are not beneficial.

Be in tune with true inspiration and what is really wanted, instead of acting on what you have been manipulated to pursue by outside influences that do not hold your best interest. Your deeper feelings provide guidance and silent time in contemplation can help with the tuning process.

Liftoff

I pledge to do my very best to uplift myself and others in every moment for the duration of this life and any others that follow. With the vast array of choices and opinions that exist, I pledge to continue learning and discerning what it means to live well, with an open mind and open heart. If I falter or forget I will come back and reread what I have written, to remember and reinvigorate my understanding of this pledge.

Killing Time

“Killing time” is a concept I cannot comprehend. If I could figure out a way to keep the body at optimal operating capacity without sleep and without side-effects, I would not be sleeping. There is just too much to learn, experience and contribute; I am only able to do a minuscule portion of what I’d like to accomplish each day. I love my life and the people I have connected with, in-person and at a distance.

Responsible Living

It is a tricky balance – carrying out responsibilities versus living an unfettered life…

Taking care of survival vs. pursuing dreams

Feeding the stomach vs. feeding the soul

Attending to needs vs. satiating wants

Most people seem to favor one extreme or the other. I have visited both extremes at different times in the past. Now, seeking equilibrium.
