Welcome to the Rat Race
“Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75”
Do you wake up in the morning saying “Good God Morning” or “Good Morning GOD”?
Same exact words, completely different energy!
Do you ever wake up with a pit in your stomach, shuffle off to the bathroom to take a shower, feeling tired and down? You don’t want to go to work, and are already complaining about your job. You get dressed only to find your clothes are way too tight and don’t fit and feel right on. You say some negative things in your head about your body, wanting to lose weight. Then you go into the kitchen to make yourself some breakfast while absorbing all the negativity from the newspaper you are reading, and you wonder how you got that agita (indigestion). You then head on out to work and complain about the traffic or mass transit being late and overcrowded. All these things are just building and building up inside of you.
Now you’re at work and you hear other people complaining about their kids, their wife, husband, mother in-law or who ever…
You look at your phone messages and notice that your phone bill is overdue which stirs up all kinds of anxiety inside you. This sends you on a spiral of negative thoughts like, there never seems to be enough money at the end of the month. Why can’t I keep track of my money and my bills? Why can’t I ever get a break?
Finally, you get home from work, still feeling tired and don’t have the energy to cook something healthy, so you order a pizza, even though you know you’re going to regret it later. The phone rings and it’s from a friend who starts talking about the same problems that he talks about every day. Before you know it, you’ve spend over an hour listening to his kvetching ( the Yiddish word for complaining) .
By now it is late and you get ready for bed. You put on the TV to watch the news and fall asleep with all the negative news blaring into your subconscious mind, reinforcing the doom and gloom.
This goes on day after day, week after week, month after month. Before you know it, years have gone by. Your body has gotten more out of shape. You have all sorts of aches and pains, and you’re stuck in the same job complaining about the same things!
Welcome to the rat race! This is no way to live! Stop, get off and start doing what makes you happy. This is your life we are talking about. live it fully! Through understanding some laws of nature you can jump off the wheel and discover yourself!
