Please watch the below video:


Although I already intuitively knew and believed the above...this video effected me differently than others.

So often we all make decisions and form beliefs/opinions based on our perceived "needs". Many of us (myself included) are doing what were supposed to do...to be responsible and take care of our families.

We sacrifice and sacrifice and this is the norm and we fail to see a way of life without sacrifice. We sacrifice our time/lives doing things were usually not interested in...to earn green tickets to quell the fear of failure...irresponsibility, poverty, hunger, starvation, death...etc...

Its damn sad...a very sad state of affairs that this is "the most" were making of "life"...doing things you don't want to do...for most of your life to comfort our fears...and were going to teach this to the future generations and they will do the same...so on and so forth for as long as fear exists...the misery will persist.

There again is FEAR controlling decisions...

maybe this is why subconsciously doom porn is somewhat comforting....its an escape...its a way out...its a ctrl alt delete...end task reboot.

If we all knew the world was ending tomorrow...and the machine didn't need to be fed....what would we do? How would we live? Would you show up at work? Would you pay your taxes? Would you revise or review your stock portfolio?

The truly important things in life are realized at deaths door...

Money is just a reflection of other things. Yes, people make decisions based on how much they will earn, but this is more about finding what your true calling is. It's not really about money being the deciding factor but people lacking confidence in who they really are.

I agree to a larger degree money isn't the issue FEAR is...

Yes. Personally I feel the like the first 25-20 years of my life was dictated by fear. It's quite relieving once you break the habit though.



Fear is a control factor. Simple. But even without it being just that, it can be equally damaging when people project their fears onto others with no intent to control.

Part of the human psyche...

Confidence is the anathema to fear.
