Growing up I never knew what I will do in life, I barely spent any time thinking about it. I'm sure many of you were like that, simply living joyfully day by day. When I was about 15 or 16 my father and I got in to an argument, he got really mad seeing no concern about my future in me ( I was supposed to look anxious about it or something) "What are you going to do in life?!" he shouted. I looked at the question sincerely, looked outside of our living room window for a moment and said to him something that only stirred more heat in him "I don't know, all I know is that I'm going to be happy in life" I said. Because such was my state at the moment - what else to seek? bliss is here!
This changed later in life as I got sucked in the ways of the society.. it wasn't anything short of a step backwards in the evolution - don't underestimate the power of the herd ;)
It took a lot of work to bring my self back to a point where simply just by siting I feel fulfilled, by simply walking I can experience deep sense of joy, looking at the sky can be such a profound experience, no need to pursue anything, once again "it's all here"
For many of us dropping the idea of erecting a goal somewhere in the future doesn't come easy. Majority usually end up running towards it believing that one day... one day I reach it and I'll be happy. This will NOT happen, nor did it ever truly happen for anyone in the passed.
