Work less

The antithesis to what we are conditioned to do. We are programmed from early childhood and throughout our entire lives to keep working harder, hustle, be active, get to it, don’t stop…

Work less, consume less, have a simpler life, recycle, repair, reuse, don’t accumulate stuff, be free from attachment.

The reason that we need to work more is to keep pace with the ‘lifestyle’ we’ve been sold, where the only winners are the owners of that ‘lifestyle’ we just keep buying.

No one lies on their death bed and wishes they’d worked more. They wish they had spent more time with their friends, family, laughed more, travelled more, done all those things that work got in the way of.

Work less and have more joy.

More of something

Counter to the world’s dominant thinking and conditioning, more of something is not what it is about. More leads to less. Less happiness, less contentment, less joy, less energy, less awareness, less purpose, less consciousness.

More money, more food, more drugs, more sex, more gambling, more, more, more… an addiction, the disease of the human mind.

That is not the route to true joy, inner peace, purpose and fulfilment. More is an addiction of the mind, the ego, the false self-image that is based on the non-existent time dimensions of the past and future that our mind and collective minds construct. We become the thinker instead of the real person beyond thought.

In the present real moment, that is our life, when we are awake and conscious, the concept of more is irrelevant and does not exist, we are accepting and grateful for what we have now.

The concept of needing more of anything to bring happiness and salvation doesn’t matter as we are free of our egoic state. We are not attached to our thoughts or our need for instant gratification, we are free from our addictions and sense of worth be derived from possessions and the pursuit of pleasure.

Less thought, less ego, less unconscious mindstreams will lead to inner peace, joy and meaning.

Less not more.
