A lot of great posts in this topic that have really penetrated the basic truth about the condition in which we find ourselves. I starred every one of
them and will let them speak for themselves. In turn I will offer the best of what I came up with working within the system. I believe this course of
action is most effective and offers the only real starting platform. It may not be attractive to the majority here even within this topic, but for
those who resonate, I hope to show that you are not alone in your endeavour.
my own experimental plan B formula:
(spiritual discipline to increase life & creative force) - (work to survive) - (ageing & stress) + (valence of uncertainty variable) = (minor surplus
of life & creative force)[assuming tolerable uncertainty variable]
(minor surplus of life & creative force) x (time & experience) = (accumulated surplus of life & creative force with experience)
how to create a discipline, its effectiveness, and to what end it is used are a matter of one's personal path. Both formulas require nothing short of
asceticism within contemporary life, summarized best as putting a definitive end to the current lifestyle in favour of family, work, and the
discipline, devoid as much as possible of everything else (addictions, distractions, superfluous emotions, social entanglements, persona (mask)
indulgence, indolence, illusions of mind, to name the major ones). Those who understand the subtleties and underlying connections of this will already
know that this is not equivalent and in fact the opposite to denying your Self.
