Self-development, individuation and authenticity.
It’s so easy to look around at society and reflect on your situation and think things need to change, and they do need to change, they always need to change. But we must understand that changing the system will never lead to some perfect utopia, the flaw goes beyond the system and its culture.
It’s imprinted on our DNA. It’s written in the laws of nature. Perfect doesn’t exist. So yeah, fight for something better, but don’t forget to make the most of what is and enjoy it, and keep in mind how it could be so much worse.
As an agnostic, I don’t claim to know if magic does or doesn’t exist, or that there is or isn’t a higher power. Or that life has or has not got any purpose beyond its seeming randomness. But sometimes I like to sit in the glow of these metaphysical beliefs. I lean into them in my thinking, but I don’t lean on them as much as I possibly can. I try not to create narratives out of things not seen.
I can see those who do create stories and beliefs for themselves out of these metaphysical ideas and I believe that those narratives are generally misguided, neglect what is real, is seemingly more of a crutch than a point of growth, and they can over time pay a penalty for those narratives,
