Maybe it's just the reefer talking but...
    #1208319 - 01/11/03 02:19 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Worrying.

Does it serve a purpose?

Whenever I get high, or meditate, or just relax, I always discover that, throughout my daily life, I've been absorbing all these stupid worrysome(sp) thoughts like ticks & leeches. Whenever I look at it objectively they just seem so negative and pointless.
Yet I keep thinking about it. Why? I think it's contagious.
I think that's what living in this society is all about... Being told you need more and more, and that you have to fit this formula or you're 'weird'. If you dont subscribe to the worries that everyone else has than you're clearly insane.

There are things that you worry about that have a well known consequence... like "Man, If I smoke this joint driving down this busy street I might get caught."

and worries that almost seem to be based on total myth. Mainly the type that cling on to you and make you think that you need to succumb to those worries to be happy.

Maybe someone else can help me with examples. Unfortunately my brain tends to shit out when it comes to proving my point!

Society likes to grab your arm and bend you into servility. You just gotta do the unexpected and think for yourself. See what your priorities really are.

Don't worrry.

Awareness is what it's all about.

Of course that's easier said than done.

I worry about that too. I wonder if what I really want is acceptable to society and other people- it gives me a headache. The answer I usually come up with is to just not worry anout what society wants from me.

:wink:

Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

Thanks MrMushrooms, that picture reminded me how seriously fucked up in the head society's "heros" are. And how down to earth I actually am... Don't know if that was your intention or not!

My whole life is an example, I am trying to get out of negative thought patterns. I would like to start daily meditation sessions.

Personally, I don't give a fuck about making lots of money, buying a house etc. Its hard to ignore people like my parents who think that is the sole purpose in existing. But I ascribe to the philosophy that you should 'make a life not a living'. Actually I ofen feel guilty about buying too many things because of the resources that would have gone into making them which more likely than not taxed the environment.

E_D, I think the only thing keeping us from a positive daily experience is a little motivation

I hate thinking about doing things and then just sitting in my room all day... fuck... Oh well, back to the university this week.

Everyone's live is like an ocean. It moves in waves. Your currently experiencing a negative wave. Soon a very positive one will happen. I promisse.

Remember this...  :wink:
