When my cup is full I stop pouring

March 6, 2018
What are you yearning for? We are all reaching for something. Many of us are unaware of what we are reaching for, we merely do it. WE live in a robotic place, almost a default or auto pilot. We do what we do, we engage, we compete, we acquire and we strive, but really what for?
Many of us are so deeply in the striving that we don’t know why. Perhaps we are doing what those have done before us, for generations, maybe we are doing what we have been told, or what is expected? Which are you? Are you aware of why you are doing all that you do and why you even care about it all?
This may sound a little melancholy but many of us get up everyday without clarity as to why, what is the purpose? We strive for a bigger better life – more money, nicer things, more land, more vacations, more, more more….but does it ever feel like enough?
Many of us engage in this delusion that once we achieve this certain place of position, freedom, power or influence that we will be done…unfortunately this is rarely the case.
The pursuit of more creates the pursuit of more, an insatiable striving for more – but what of and why? Why do we continue to engage in this cycle without knowing it’s meaning? The answer is quite simplistic, we have never stopped to ask what truly brings us joy and happiness. We have never analysed our position in relation to others and asked ourselves what we want.
We have never stepped or even allowed ourselves to check out and ponder a life of simplicity – a life of service, of clarity, clear direction, passion, ambition and purpose. You see the stuff – the acquiring, the busyness and the drive are not bad things, they are however meaningless without knowing why we strive to pursue them.
Instead we need to take risk – to detach from all that is and to ponder what our soul wants and needs. We must ponder what we are willing to forego and let go of to create space for a life of connection, service and fulfillment. We must stop looking over the fence or looking to keep up with the Jones’s and instead carve out a reality that represents fulfillment for us.
What a journey this is – it’s ambition, its courageous and it’s FUN! Take the risk, plunge into the unknown and detach, simplify and find what nourishes your soul…until you do this the striving is meaningless….you can do this!
