I am NOT a rich American. Like most, my family and I are getting by. That’s cool. But donations, I do not have anything to spare. The question is: Is this 51% service to others? I have doubts.
Here’s why: I sit in my cubicle at work and “manage” a group of a dozen drivers. I tell gas truck drivers where to go. Really it’s not complicated. In fact, odds are I’m about to be replaced by a computer algorithm. Think anyone will care? Doubtful.
That’s what spiritual awakening teaches us. The daily grind, whatever that looks like, just wears on us. There’s more to life than sitting in a cubicle for 12 hours 4 days on, 4 days off. There’s more to life than chopping wood and hauling water. Yes, we still need to physically survive in a 3D environment.
Survival takes different forms. In the current paradigm I’m stuck in, and I do mean stuck, is eat, sleep, work, go home, repeat, drag on for 50 years. Die. So many people are in the paradigm of eat, sleep, work, entertainment, repeat, repeat, grim reaper. Yay. Right?
Here’s what I’m going to say. Screw the old paradigm! Here’s another program- Get married, have kids, get a house drag on until the nest empties out, retire, die. Screw that noise, too! Had I learned twenty plus years ago, would I be here now? Aw hell naw! But live and learn. Right?
And I still love my offspring and my wife. That’s normal, right? But it’s an old program. If I could provide for them and chase the dream elsewhere? I’ve already got my bags packed! Count me in!
And that’s where I’ll leave this particular update. I really do mean if you’ve got a legit business and you want me to help, we should chat. I’m open to new ventures. More in Part 5.
