Greed.

How will we break from the spell of money and power?

Caring more about the dollar then human life

Living as if our bank account is the only thing that matters

Sacrificing our grandparents for the dow jones

Even in crisis, the rich get richer

Leaving crumbs for the rest

I’m not a revolutionary

But a man who questions everything

Especially my own life

I will look within

Within my greed

Doing my best

To choose generosity over greed

And the love of life over the fear of losing money

 

Drifter.

A drifter

A vagabond

Never commiting long term to a job

A relationship or location

This is how I choose to live my one life for now

For the open road is welcoming

New people

New experiences

The journey along the windy path into the unknown

Adventures with new friends

New places to explore

Discovering who you are through the adversity of uncertainty

The uncomfortable decisions you have to make that push you to be better

Never stagnating in one spot

Not decaying & mold from staying still too long

I’ll embrace this journey as a vagabond for now

Not knowing where life will take me

True Compassion.

If you can show compassion to Hitler, Stalin, & Genghis Khan

You know true compassion

For compassion & love isn’t just for the innocent

But for those who harm other beings

Violence, judgment, & hatred will not bring peace

Only compassion will

Bring awareness that hatred lives within all human beings

Including ourself

If we truly want peace we must seek to understand

For love is the absence of judgment

You are Divine.

Divinity is found within all

Even if they don’t realize it

Buried under years of conditioning

Fear, anger & greed cover the jewel that is your true nature

To be kind

To help

To love

Wisdom is the process of unlearning

Unlearning old habits & beliefs that hold back us from touching true joy

Allowing us to see our true nature

Breaking Free of Status.

I have worked many jobs

None defined me

I have been a dishwasher

Yet managed corporate accounts

I have cleaned toilets

Yet managed a sales territory

I have taken out many of trashes

Yet have a college degree

Money & status do not define who we are

Our salary, benefits or lack of do not determine our self worth

Unless we allow them too

Ranking ourself & others by salary

Worrying constantly about how we portray ourself to others

Let’s break free today

The mental suffering of what others think of us isn’t worth it

F#ck it!

Stress at work

Stress at home

Fuck it

I care too much what others think

I care too much what other do

Fuck it

I think about my past and I’m sad

I think about my future and I get anxious

Fuck it

Life is too short to worry about every little detail

To worry about being perfect at work

To stress over the unknown future

Fuck it!!

Feel the liberation of not giving a shit about what others think of you

Let that huge grin shine into the darkness of worry, stress, and anxiety over what everyone else is thinking & doing

Love is what truly matters

Durden’s Wisdom.

I am not my job.

I am not my college diploma.

I am not defined by the amount of money in my bank account.

I am not my religion or lack of one.

I am not my skin color.

I am not defined by my car, clothes, or stuff.

Careers are overrated.

Stuff is just stuff.

Money is paper we give meaning to.

We are much more.
