Well if there is more than one option for something, and they all have varying degrees of pros and cons, and I choose one that has way more cons than pros, to me that is a wrong choice. I know the whole thing Christine Kane said about "There is no wrong wall" (with the ladders analogy), but I already feel like I'm behind on life, and if I make a choice that is wrong (for me) then I need more time to fix that "mistake" and get to the point where I can make a better choice. Not to mention, certain choices might be costly financially. If I was 18 years old and just graduating high school I would just do whatever I wanted without thinking because I would know I had enough time to do everything. But when you don't even think about those things til you're almost 40, well, you just simply don't have as much time so you have to make better decisions.
I'm just telling you if we get the spiritual down.. then problems like "job" will be easier to deal with and create.. |
I consider myself pretty balanced spiritually, but I still dread certain situations, and I still don't think being perfect spiritually would help me to like things that I don't like, or not like things that I like. I realize that it's not the situations but how you react to them...but that is so much easier said than done. The only time I don't react negatively to a situation is when I wanted that situation in the first place or if I simply dont care enough. I guess that proves I'm not as spiritually balanced as I thought, but much more so than 99% of the people I know, anyway! I guess I would feel like a neanderthal if I had family and friends like everyone on this forum!
I'm going to give you a small example alright..? my sister had been looking for a job for several months.. and we came to her one weekend and said.. "were going to yellowstone, like we planned.. your welcome to come" |
She said "I got a good chance of getting a job soon.. so no I don't want to come.. let me get back to gaming"
Well, we went to yellowstone and came back.. she still didn't have a job.. and I'm sure it was a few months before she did.. and then later on she would say "I regret not going to yellowstone"
Don't live your life in regrets.. I'm simply telling you the spiritual journey can supercede the job journey.. and I'm telling you the spiritual journey can be more important than the job.. the whole reason you may not have a job yet.. can all be about "the spiritual"
That's a bummer about your sister!
I don't have any regrets like that though, from this last 14 months that I've been out of a full time job...I cancelled 2 trips I planned because I didn't want to go into further debt with my credit card, and I don't regret that one bit. I can always go on other trips when I have a job and don't have to worry about money.
Some of our other selves.. find it very funny that us "creator gods"/powerful beings.. have such a hard time paying our mortgage check every month.. because to them it's a irony.. how could a god capable of manifesting whole words have trouble with a little thing called 'mortgage' or money?? |
I know that's not how our universe/reality appears to work.. but take a step and see a bigger picture, if you can
Oh yes I can understand that. I know there's a bigger picture and we care about stupid things. But you almost have to, in this world. Would you think it would be wise to quit your job and quit taking care of your kids (if you had any) and just wander the earth not trying to survive? You couldn't just quit your job and leave everyone behind and just wander around aimlessly, you probably wouldn't make it very far and you'd lose friends in the process
We chose to play this game, and we can't quit til the game is over.
