A simple route to purpose

Most of us are engaged as knowledge workers, where we do mainly repetitive and not very fulfiling daily tasks. It leaves a discontent, a feeling that we are not really making a difference.

We can’t all be entrepreneurs or freelancers, we can’t all quit our jobs immediately and roam the world. Of course, over a period of time, anything is achievable.

However, we can choose on a daily basis to do some art, to write a journal, to craft something, to make something, baking a cake, cooking, singing, playing the guitar…to do a small thing that gives a sense of contributing, of doing something that is purposeful. Stepping away from the dripping tap of distraction that is the digital unreal world of unconsciousness.

We live in a world that is instant everything, yet we are so unsatisfied. Satisfaction comes from being present and focusing on one thing, often a simple thing, that brings us real joy and taking our time to enjoy it, not rushing to elsewhere.

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.
