There is a struggle going on, but it’s for your attention. Where are you focused daily? Everyone wants to grow up and make themselves into something of merit, but everything isn’t always that simple. The amount of merit you gain is in direct proportion to your ability to be selfless within any specific community or sphere of influence. Only those with a dedication to something of purpose will find happiness because happiness is a gift from the heavens, not a guarantee. The happiness we all covet comes from above, but the ability to receive it comes from within. So that is where the conflict always starts first.
If you are determined to embrace external conflict, in the end, all you do is fight with yourself. You have to put down the sword at some point and win the battle for your sense of focus, but until that point, you have lost yourself in the minutia of the reality. Some would even say that the reality you find is vastly different than the one you thought that you were in. But whatever the case, if you don’t leave one shore, how will you ever arrive at the other? If you don’t create purpose, how would you ever propose to have to mean?
Everyone wants your love, but you have to know the greater purpose the behind love for it to be truly embraced in a meaningful fashion?
