When I sat back and read last week’s newsletter I felt this feeling wash over me.
Most my life I’ve been baffled by what we are and how we live, and I’ve solved it, at least to satisfactory answers for me.
I know it sounds lofty or arrogant or nutso to say “I’ve figured out life” and of course I hope there’s plenty left to learn…
But, truth is, I found the three (one redacted…) SIMPLE answers that I’ve spent my entire adult life obsessively seeking.
1. How Do You Create The Life You Truly Want?
This is the most fundamental mystery of our lives…
When it should be the most basic, obvious, and teachable skill of being human.
Left to figure it out on our own few of us do. 5+ billion of us live in abject poverty, at best most of us live and die a life that was good enough, with few of us truly living our dream.
How on earth could we when nobody teaches us how?
With our heads stuffed full of information masquerading as learning, none of us are given even the slightest hint on how to make our way through this world.
Bombarded by a world of noise most of us struggle just to make it through our days, let alone chart our ideal course.
I bleed for humanity. Since I was a child I’ve felt an unshakable sadness and unwavering fight that so many of us are forced to settle for so little.
From about age 11 this has been my focus, and since 2000, more or less, my sole focus.
I ONLY ever wanted to live the most amazing life I can imagine, and I spent a good 20 years obsessed with how you do it.
Here I give away the answer for a fraction of the cost of wasting your life watching Netflix, but I’m done with trying too hard getting people to read…
2. How Do You Think And Feel How You Want?
Now, this, even amongst close friends, is a taboo subject, one we’re totally phony about, but I’m gonna just throw it out there…
How many of us are truly happy?
I mean, truly?
Not by the definition of complaining about our jobs, the world, hating on each other, living in fear, insecurity, anger, outrage, worry, lacking confidence, boosting with coffee, boozing up, popping pills… yet pasting a smile pretending to be happy.
I mean, really, how many of us are truly happy?
By my c0unt.. n0t en0ugh… especially in the “ambiti0us” cr0wd, wh0se happiness is perpetually 0ne g0al ahead…
Fact is, we’re not biologically engineered to be happy, but to survive, and we’re socially conditioned to infect our company with misery.
Our “news” is the worst of the world, we entertain ourselves with drama, violence, murder, fighting over jerseys, and when we’re not abusing each other online, fake smiles being fake social.
Nearly all of us struggle to feel amazing at will and our society is a menu of escapes—TV, food, booze, drugs, gaming, porn, celebrity up-skirts… Few of us can even “socialize” without a drink to change how we feel.
We apparently find it so hard to be alone or together that all gender identities are celebrating the greatest technological leap since our porn-filled internet, robots who will have sex with us.
Our society is so starved for happiness that we tout the Dalai Lama and his crew as the happiest people on the planet, while failing to admit how they do it.
Literally, they avoid the rest of us!
They don’t live in “our world,” but in a world of walls, monks and nothing but training the mind. Step into our world and how many turn to Osho.
In a lifetime “trying” to mold this reality to my will, I’ve had a lifetime of beatdowns from my mind, and hours a day of mental conditioning is the only way I made it through.
Before that it took a decade of reading books “trying” to figure out why I couldn’t just be content like everyone else in my great jobs (clue: many are not).
For so long I was deeply ashamed that having so much I couldn’t “just be happy.”
Yet, even after years of conditioning the crap out of the mind, I still struggled to feel how I want.
Thousands of books. Tens of thousands of hours. Hundreds of audio and video training programs. Hundreds of thousands of dollars invested training with the best teachers in the world. Writing two books on the mind…
Another obsession, DONE.
The answer I wrote about here. I’m not suggesting that reading this is enough to actually do this fully yourself—I can’t “literally” give the answer away—but it is this simple.
