We all want to be happy. Distracting our self with the daily activities: school, work, watch tv, checking facebook/twitter/instagram/snapchat/your mailbox, talk talk talk.
Reality check: How much time do you spend in fantasy world? For instance, the checkbox on facebook says “what’s on your mind?” or twitter “what’s happening?”. People drop what they “think” they wanna do, did, or imagine about. In reality you’re staring at a screen not doing anything.
Action speaks for itself, words come and go. again, how much of your time is wasted on such distractions rather than actually putting up the work?
It’s the ego. Ego is the enemy. A dying man may feel the ultimate peace and joy by realizing he got “nothing to lose”. A successful person living at the top-floor of a high building might see his apartment go up in flames as all his belongings burn to ashes. In Fight club there is a quote:
“The things you own end up owning you”. – Fight club
You don’t need a damn thing! Happiness is ALREADY with you. Don’t worry about losing everything. You basically let go of all the possessed assumption you thought was yours. Without the energy completion of all those assumptions, you’re living openly. Transparent as in freshly born everyday. Taking your first breath when you did as a baby. Exhale it out accepting it’s fine, none of your concern.
“It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.” – Fight club
