What should you live for? Wealth? Power? Service? Longevity? Reason? Love? Faith? Family? God? Virtue? Happiness? Fulfillment? Comfort? Contentment? Integrity? There are hundreds to choose from…
It is important to make a global choice about how to live our lives, since this decision sets the context for everything else we do. If you don’t choose your context, you get the default/average context, which means you’re essentially letting others dictate your context. To make a gross generalization, this is largely commercial/materialistcontext. It says to get a job, have a family, save some money, and retire. Be a good citizen and don’t get into too much trouble. But don’t really matter either. Be a good cog.
Most people simply subscribe to the default context of their culture with minor individual variations.
Now is the time to start creating and design your own lifestyle!! Ultimately if you want to get closer to the ‘best possible dreamlife‘ for you, you have to pick your own context.
