Advice From A Monk….

The Difference

There is a difference between living, and just existing. It’s been long known that in horse racing one horse runs faster than the others, but which one? Differences are crucial.

There is a difference between just existing and actually living. What humans today call living to me seems to be just a living death. There is no interaction, no companionship. They don’t even want people to seek those things.

So my next question is, “What really matters?” We have to make sense of our priorities and our goals.

I’ve talked about this before in previous posts about how it’s important to have your attitude and priorities in alignment with each other to be effective.

One of the problems many people experience is having limited effectiveness. It seems like screaming in a wind tunnel, or the ears of a deaf cat; there isn’t even an echo.

Perhaps we are working in a vacuum? There is some good that come from that, however the holes in today’s culture leave much to be desired.

Culture??

Today’s culture isn’t working out too good. Seems people are living in some other dimension that doesn’t make a lot of sense. They are either all asleep, or not present in mind and body.

This isn’t the way I remember living in my youth. People used to be living and making the best of it. There was a lot more living, and a lot less zombie shit.

Maybe it’s just the conditions that I’m working with. It seems that there is something wrong with the current conditions that are not positive towards blooming as a being.

When intelligence, creativity, and talent are not enough; then we have to ask what they are looking for in us that we aren’t showing them at face value?

When a person is disabled or suffers from anxiety or depression and they make use of the talents that they do have but are only told that they aren’t good enough.

As if their depression makes them a total failure. Then the other persons values are obviously in the wrong the place because they don’t see the silver lining right in front of them. They can not see and focus on anything but the bad.

See The Good

Some humans have a problem that if the only thing they are told is that they are bad, they usually don’t turn out as good as when they are told that they are good. So it requires some amount of conditioning humans to be better.

There are problems, which if they wanted to solve could be corrected. However they aren’t interested in solutions or answers. They just want the quick fix, the instant answer, and the easy way for everything. They dis-regard anything anyone else may be doing or trying to do, with only interest in what is easiest.

Life’s going to be difficult for them. Because they continue to only do what is easy without putting forth much effort. I wish that I could have reached their hearts and minds with logic and reason, it does however seem that the lights are on, but no one is home.
