Life is just consciousness and its contents. Try being less precious about moments of stillness. Try to be less cavalier about daily activities. Try to undermine the boundary between these two states.
Be aware of your thoughts in each moment.
Right now, in this moment, you have everything you need to experience the fullness of life. Isn’t everything enough? Look around you. Drink it in. Even moments of sadness, despair, anxiety, and fear should be fully experienced as a natural part of the human condition.
We are each here for only a short time. There isn’t an afterlife – a better place – that we depart to once this body is finished. This is all the time we have.
It’s our choice to make something of it. But when making choices about how you’re going to live, do it without regard for money. Remove it from the equation. It’s not the foundation of happiness.
Focus instead on what moves you, what draws you in. Choose based on what makes you come alive. The world needs more of this.
Be true to this and the money will come.
But more importantly, you will live a life with few regrets and you will experience more fully what it means to be human.
