What if time and money both go away?

Good morning,

Do you ever think about getting old or not having enough money?  How much of your life is consumed by these concerns?  What would you do with your life if they didn’t exist or were less important?
 
This message has really got me thinking.  What are your thoughts?  I would love to hear.
 
Love always,
Paul

So much of your life revolves around money and time.  These are the concerns facing you all the time and you deal with them in varying ways.  You don’t want to be old and you don’t want to be poor.  Both of these notions signify failure, giving up and being incapable.  It doesn’t look good to be impotent and weak does it?

It does not feel comfortable to have trends in your life where you feel powerless to change them.  Age marches on each day and you have money constraints all the time as well.  They both combine with other trends and gang up on your views of what you are doing with your life and how you are living inside of all the expectations you have for yourself.

When you add the layers of expectations other people put on you, it gets even heavier.  People look down on you, they want to push you out and find others to fill your shoes who are younger and more energetic.  You have energy concerns and have to push yourself more to keep your body going and keep relevant and interesting.

What if you could take the concerns about time and money away?  How would you live then?  Would you turn into a lazy, unhappy person without the pressures?  How would you behave with only your creativity and desire to produce in place?  In many ways, both of these concerns are invented by you and your societies.

At the soul level, there is no time.  At the soul level, money and things are temporary.  Many of the concerns paramount in your consciousness are not even present in other spheres.  What do you choose, knowing the concerns you have the most problem with; namely, money and time, are not even long term concerns? 

What else would you do with your life and your time if you have a clearer view of what is important, long term?

There are some provocative thoughts.  What will you do with this new awareness?

Every day, you make a new you

Hi,

Life can be so frustrating at times and people don’t seem to respond the way I want them to.  There are so many options and what do each of them produce?  As I was thinking about all this, the Man came through with something even more perplexing and deep.
 
I love you,
Paul

Every day you make a new you.  Each moment you decide what you want to think about and what you want to do.  Each of these decisions makes you what you are and how you appear to others.  Every word, every motion, every thought and expression is a building block creating who you are.

People respond to what you say.  People make assessments about you by what you text and how you treat them.  What you talk about is key to creating your identity but what you do is even bigger.  Even when you are quiet and listen, you are establishing who you and how you react to what is going on around you. 

When you write something and share it, your identity changes.  When you speak something and do something with something someone else says, you are becoming something to them.  Each smile, each frown, each complaint shapes who you are with those you are with. 

You can appear competent and helpful or you can resist and find fault.  You have ideas to share and you can let others express themselves ahead of you.  What does that say about you and how do you show up when you do what you choose?

The opportunity is to re-create yourself each day.  What do you put your energy into and how do you move and shake?  What is important to you and how do you invest your time?  Do you spend time doing things not important to you?  If you do what you want to do, how does that show up with others? 

Ultimately, this is your gig and trying to please others and get them to like you is rather frustrating.  If you do have someone who likes you, don’t you start taking it for granted anyway?  What do you do to keep a relationship going and what do you do to push people away if it gets to stuffy or difficult to manage? 

Deciding what actions you will take and what results you want can be difficult.  You can also get lost in the path of only looking outside of yourself for acceptance.  What do you really want at the soul level?  If all you want are superficial things, will you ever get them?  What do you really want and will you be satisfied if you get them?

Life shows you to yourself.  Life also challenges you to find the deeper, more fundamental desires and then tempts you to look elsewhere for what you think you want.  Can you stay focused on the areas you really want?  Do you even know what you really want?
