Why do we do what we do?
We work hard to keep a roof over our head.
When we have the roof, we spend all our time just maintaining that roof so it does not leak all over us.
We work so we can pay to have things within the walls of this roof.
Then we spend all of our time trying to find those things or keep our possessions tidy within this roof.
We walk the dog, so she doesn’t get bored and chew things within our dwelling, to get out of this confined space.
In order to have the energy to stay in this roof, and to find and maintain the things within it, we have to nourish our bodies by labouring to feed ourselves.
We shop for food, so we can feed ourselves, come home and expend energy to store these things for later need
Then once we have fed this machine, called a body, we then have to clear up the efforts of this process.
So we can then start the wheel of work and maintain all over again.
If we clear one weed in the garden, then another springs up so we have to repeat the process.
If one weed springs into our minds, we have to counteract it by saying something positive and kill it.
The problem is we tend to repeat this same process of weeding and de-weeding too within our minds.
Some of us then have so many psychological weeds we become, frustrated, sad or sick.
Then we have to work to pay someone to help us with psychotherapy or pills to help us address this
Which means we have less money to go out and enjoy ourselves, or take a break, or give up work and ship out from the roof which contains us.
So we might stay stuck in our rut of work and our own roof which becomes a prison of our making.
So why are we here?
Actually, I am seriously asking this question.
Why are we here?
What is the point of our existence?
Yes, ok we can do good, help people, have holidays, do good works but is that an end in itself and the only end?
So why are we here?
To be honest, I am beginning to wonder.
What do you think?
Just a thought.
Hopefully someone might answer.
