Until recently, I tried to bend life to my rigid expectations.  But one day, tired and exhausted, I decided to focus on nothing of consequence—things that I didn’t care about, that had no causal relationship to any of my goals.  To my utter surprise, a feeling of well-being arose from my apathy.  Perhaps it’s coincidence, but over the next few months, that feeling of well-being began to lengthen and intensify, and my goals began to fall in place much faster than I had ever expected (one of my goals, which I had originally projected to take around ten years, took place in a few months while another which I had projected to take one to two more years happened in two months).

And then I realized it wasn’t the goals that mattered, it was the feeling of well-being—and the implication that the well-being is a natural occurrence.  I didn’t have to focus on positive stuff or push away the negative, all I had to do was let things happen without getting caught up in them.  To me, that implies that something good will shape our lives if we only let it.  Call it what you want.  I think it’s best left nameless.

  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I think we can become too utilitarian in our efforts and forget the beauty of being. I like the sentiment usually attributed to Kurt Vonnegut: “I am a human being, not a human doing.” The irony is, when doing flows from being, it is a much, much better result 🙂
