Thinking about where you will or have to be in 5 years feels like watching a movie about someone achieving the american dream…waste of time in a bubble of illusions.
I’m not saying don’t dream or visualize things that you really want to achieve and experience!
You should do that for sure!
But you have to be able to make the difference between what are your true wants and desires are and what are the fake ones that are being installed in your mind from outside.
Trying to achieve the so called american dream or simply be “successful” for the sake of societal approval is one of the biggest traps/illusions that are designed to steal your time and energy in pursuit of one giant nothing!
You are just twirling around in a vicious cycle that has no end, no meaning and no purpose.
Making plans about being somewhere in 5 years seems so silly now, but when i was 20 some years old i used to hear this all the time from people around me. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I never had answer for this question.
I don’t know man! I don’t even want to know!
What’s the point of knowing such thing? Why would you want to have predictable life with a path laid in front of you?
If someone has laid a path in front of you to walk on, this is not your path man! Your path you make with your own feet and it’s never a straight one. It’s never outlined!
How can you know what you are doing and where you are going if you are being led astray all the time? How can you find your own way if you are walking on someone else’s path?…
A path that is pretty much predetermined for you since the day you were born (kinder garden, school, get a job, get that big TV, get married, become bank slave to buy shit, etc…)
Everyone is trying to fake it, till they make it, but what’s in the actual making? A false self at best?
We are not some star dust that evolved from nothing to monkeys to iPhone 11! We are not some kind of stupid cosmic mistake that by miracle became this unreal perfect machine that no one can entirely figure out!
We are not some morons that need to follow guidelines of how to life your life and be successful!
We are creators!
We can think for ourselves!
Hold the vision and trust the process!
There is no rush in the natural world!
Everything is about timing!
Pay attention to how you feel and what’s going on in your life!
