Let’s get real here for a moment! HMT (#HoldMyTea) while I attempt this one…
Life As A Trap
So as life would have it, we are all sitting here, trying to get somewhere special. We all want to be somewhere in life where our dreams come to fruition. Whether that be career success, spiritual understanding, love, etc.
Some want all of this at the same time. Why does this not always happen? Well, there are a few reasons, but the biggest one is the fact that life is based on a series of traps. We are all put here to do something purposeful but these different purposes are really more about us mastering ourselves. We are meant to be the leanest, meanest, dream machine makers this side of the Brazos River!
Lies of Society
Why are we not? Well, it’s because we let society tell us what to do. We don’t listen to nature or our heavenly voices and instead, we listen to society. What is society? Well, it’s a bunch of people convincing other people what to do, be and think.
To put it simply it’s a long-term game of monkey see monkey do, or garbage in-garbage out if you prefer. They put out a lot of traps, like chasing love, chasing money, chasing fame and chasing other false ideas. These yay-holes are really lost. Only idiots think that fame, love, money or the like will make them happy long-term.
Avoiding The Traps
So they go about their lives chasing these things. Why? Because it worked for some guy a long time ago! Yeah, that guy you saw in the commercial was happy with the Coors light girls or that wife in that rom-com was happy with her little beau.
These are not really accurate depictions though. Our reality is more about people coming together to figure out how they can be a service to others, that’s what generates happiness and allows you to avoid the traps. Being of service to others, while remembering your dreams as well, is a big way to move forward.
Skipping the whole me, me, me phase of life, is a good thing. It breeds character and shows you that no matter what, your happiness comes from your love for life, not life’s guarantee that you will be rich, powerful, loved or even spiritually gifted.
These are things temporally bestowed on people, but they are by no means guarantees. Take them as such, and you will stop getting trapped and start getting productive.
