The Formula By Which We Live
July 28, 2010
We all live by a certain formula we set up for ourselves. Somewhere along the line we learn to filter, mask and derail specific notions about the world and ourselves. Until I realized speed would not make me happy, I thought beating the clock was the best way to live.
My winning formula was clock combat. But what I didn’t realize is that clock combat = self combat. What are we truly racing toward…or against?
It all comes down to ourselves. We may define our lives by external matters such as a watch or the construct we call time. We might feel we are victim to our job, our co-workers, or our families.
There is no power from that space.
Abundant, joyful living does not stem from that place of lack, blame and exhaustion.
Abundance comes from within. I have changed my formula to one of infinite abundance: Time = existence. I am here. What will I do with my time? That is a question I answer every day now. Savoring the preciousness of our moments is a much deeper way to live.
From which formula do you operate?
