As I sit here I can’t help but become lost in my thoughts.
Do you find yourself wondering things like, “Will what I am doing right now, greatly affect what my future will look like? Am I doing the right things in my youth so that my older years will be spent doing the things that I want to do? Does the world see me for the person that I know I am? Am I fulfilling my true purpose?”
It reminds me of days gone by.
Each year up until I was 25ish, my friends and I would go on an annual camping trip. We would pack up everything we could, cram ourselves into a small car, venture 200 kilometers, set up base, and let loose.
Laughs, oh there were laughs. These were the kind of laughs that only immaturity could bring.
I remember one night very specifically. Well, actually, I remember the next morning. Two of my friends and I found ourselves sitting around the fire making breakfast. By breakfast I mean to say Pop Tarts, bacon, and eggs. The two with me were recounting their conversation from the previous evening and of course, one remembered it vividly and the other didn’t.
One says to the other, “It’s so quiet here. The campground is in Limbo.”
The other, without flinching, takes a drag from his joint and replies, “The whole world is in Limbo.”
At the time, I didn’t realize it but he was right.
Here’s why I bring this up.
The Earth, your home, is nothing but a small speck in a big galaxy. Your country, your city, your street, and your house are just a speck on that speck. While all of the questions above are good questions, by the time that you think they will matter, they won’t.
Limbo, the Earth as a speck…philosophical, I know.
Life will always make you second guess yourself and it will always lead you to ask questions. What it won’t do is show you the proper questions to ask or light your path towards the answer. The reason is twofold. Those are for you to figure out and all the problems you are having right now will be inconsequential in the future. How many problems that you encountered when you were 10 are you still having today? How about 16? 24? 37?
The answer is probably zero and for good reason. Can you imagine a life where things didn’t work out, or you never arrived at an unconscious decision? Sounds pretty awful, don’t you think? Living each day worrying about what tomorrow will bring thus forcing you from enjoying today. Why then do you let what your future might look like shape what your present looks like?
Stay with me.
You can only control so much of your journey. These include your thoughts, actions, karma (if you believe in it), and a few others. Above this, you can ask the right questions. As you continue to ask questions make sure you don’t waste your time asking the wrong ones.
- Will what I am doing right now, greatly affect what my future will look like?
- How can I make it so that what I am doing right greatly affects what my future will look like?
- Am I doing the right things in my youth so that my older years will be spent doing the things that I want to do?
- What do I need to do right now so later on I am able to spend my time doing what I want? How can I do what I want right now?
- Does the world see me for the person that I know I am?
- Does it matter if the world sees me as the person I really am?
- Am I fulfilling my true purpose?
- How can I fulfill my true purpose? What do I need to do? What steps do I need to take?
If it sounds simple, it’s because it is. Align your questions with what you are really looking for and you will get the results you want.
