Heh , thanks for the invite Rep.
Anyway, Everyone has to work , or do they?
Work is an occupational hazard to living, its takes time up in our lives , time IMOP that could be better spent learning new things, learning about
ourselves and our place in the universe.
Here's we I get confusing and freaky.
I believe that we have so much 'bottled' potential that we would , should we learn to harness our latent gifts, become a different species or
lifeform, evolved into something else, something better.
We have been given 'work' to prevent this from happening, look at our 'pre-history', we have been here ( apparently) evolving for the last 2
million odd years, only in the last 10-20,000 have we actually progressed to the technologically advanced point, we have created all sorts of devices
to make our lives easier ,before the 10-20000 point what did we do with ourselves? we lived in harmony wioth nature, we were spiritual.
But has it become easier?
Sure we have computers to do jobs for us, but that means more work during the day, otherwise we have a lot of downtime ( I have a fair amount
otherwise I wouldn't have the time to write this nonsensical post :lol
Work has put a stopper on our becoming something different, after all look at our lives ( my example ) I was born , I went to school to learn how to
be a productive member of society , I didn't really learn anything to better me , I started work, I bought a bike, a phone, a house , got married,
got loans, got credit cards, got debts, got to work harder and longer to pay them off, I'll probably die with very little to show for it.
Now look at my day ( my example again) I wake up at 6am, get a shower, get dressed , leave at 7am to go to work, takes an hour , get to work at 8am,
work till 12, have lunch, back at 1pm, work through till 4pm, go home , arrive at home at 5.15pm, prepare evening meals and eat, do some more work at
home from about 7, go to bed at 10pm, sleep till 6am
Where's the time for me to better myself?
Probably could skip working at home , but the 'job's' I have to do are important ( to whom?) I do housework tidying , maintenance as well as a bit
of 'homework' from my day job etc.
There are times in my life I just want to say to the boss " up yours" and walk out, but then I realise I have bills to pay, petrol for the bike,
etc. I have to work, if I had the money I wouldn't work , I admit there are people who lOVE to work, there are jobs that NEED to be done, Doctors and
water treatment etc, but given the choice most people would prefer to be sat at home, think about this, if there was no work there would be very
little on TV, people would read ,and with that expand their minds.
Money is the root of all evil, it forces people to work , after all your told to have new gadgets and toys, fast cars, and to have all this you have
to have money, to have a relationship you have to pay for it with dates, movies and meals out. But if the world had no money, people wouldn't work,
jobs would still have to be done, but you could do so much without it, medical care would be free, homes would be free, energy production would take
new unpolluting routes, and to cap it all space exploration would literally take off.
Mankind could progress and learn new things.
We are slaves of our own choosing, we want to have the new toys, to have them we have to have money, to have money we have to work, but as life goes
on, you have to have move to live a 'comfortable' life, that means more money is needed, unless your born with a silver spoon up your jacksy and
rich parents, then you'll have to knuckle down with the rest of the world. 95% of the worlds wealth is owned by 1% of the people,, I say take out the
1% and let everybody have a year off work.
Rant and confusion over, and to let you all know I do work , for a bank I might add, but I'm crap with money same as the rest, only the financially
savvy know how to keep theirs, my advice for my perspective is pay off your debts as quick as you can, want that Ipod? save the cash for it don't get
loans, take the cash to the store, have it in your hand and decide , do you REALLY need it? or do you simply WANT it? what benefit is it to you? .
Man I need some sugar. sorry if my post is confusing, I know what I'm trying to say, but always have trouble conveying it to others.
