Suffering is one of the greatest forces in life. It forces us to choose good over evil to stop the suffering getting worse.
Life is business first and pleasure later (whatever you may interpret as pleasure).
Put pleasure first before business and suffer the consequences.
You can only get what you seek for and should not expect to get what you are not pursuing.
Big question is- what are you seeking for?
Start each day with focus on your highest values and let this reflect in all your activities throughout the day no matter what circumstances you encounter. Be mindful when to speak, listen, act, observe or let things pass by. Let purpose guide any action you take.
Don’t forget that the primary intention is not what you will gain alone without regards to the big picture, rather what value you will add both to yourself and others in what you do.
The known is limited and will always remain limited no matter the progress we make in science.
The unknown is very interesting and can be alluded as a force that propels all things forward. The unknown is infinite and will remain so, no matter how much of it is revealed.
We are limited when we operate within the boundaries of the known. The unknown is there to be explored and we should do so if we are not bound by the fear of uncertainty and desire an expanded experience.
If you are struggling to find your purpose, I have good news for you.
Look for your bad habits, your perceived limitations, unfinished tasks and make them your purpose to sort out. Write them down, draw out an action plan and monitor progress. If you cannot make any progress after 60 days and see yourself falling back to the bad habits, then you are not ready. Start again and be persistent until you notice tangible progress.
Greater purpose will be revealed to as you remove the stumbling blocks in your life.
You are as good as what you think, perceive and do at this moment, not how you were in the past or how you want to be in the future.
