Whatever circumstance you are in, runs your life.
Circumstance dictates your responses.
Your life is not your own.
We are all victims of circumstance.
Only what you think, matters.
If you don’t think it matters, it doesn’t.
Only what you think important.
If you think it’s important, it is.
If you think it isn’t important, it isn’t.
Each day you wake up and do what you do, just like a chipmunk, lobster, sparrow or monkey. As their circumstances dictate their actions, so dictate your circumstances.
You, like a child, like a teenager, like an adult or an older person, seek for something to fill your day. Most of the time circumstances do it for you, but often enough it is up to you to decide what you will do to not be bored.
Boredom is the great killer of consciousness.
After doing what you need to do to live, what excites you, what stirs you, what dreams and ambitions are within you that need expression. Whatever they are, those are your choices.
In a slave-state your circumstances dictate your life from morning to evening and even when asleep. You have no free time. Your life is filled with orders and commands and things you cannot do and must not do. Your life is not your own.
In a more free state you have more free time.
In nature you have the most free time. It is just you and nature. Once you meet your needs, the time is yours.
Retirement gives you more free time. You have income to meet your needs. They are taken care of. And now you have free time. What are you doing with it? Complaining about your health? That’s a good use of free time.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO? That is the question. It is the question because you are free to do what you want to do....within the limits of your finances and health.
Just remember, it’s not important–soon you’ll be dead when nothing is important–unless you think so–whatever you do will be a time filler–just like your whole life has been–except back then you thought it was important....jokes on you.
