We are condemned to a life of freedom.
Now, more than ever, the youth are imbued with an immense power
We have the freedom to do anything we want
but this freedom is a double-edged sword. Too much power and we fail to recognize it
Paralysis of analysis occurs
Choosing one project means closing the doors to an infinite number of other doors
How do we do them all?
Transcendence requires us to be the best version of ourselves
But how do we know we are choosing the right path? Our freedom has given us infinite possibilities. So which one is the right now? It’s inevitable you might fall into phases of nihilism while pondering this thought
We are condemned to a life of freedom
But transcendence has no asterisk next to it that entails we must choose the best option.
Transcendence requires us only to choose the path willingly, independently, and aware of our freedom to choose that particular path.
Transcendence does not require us to necessarily pick the winning lottery number. Instead, it’s an absolute dependence on self, on self-awareness of self-actualization.
Transcendence, or whatever, is about having the power to exercise our freedom.
I like to make my Sundays a gratitude day.
Have no daunting commitments, and just spend the day with a sense of appreciation for what I have.
Today I wanted to say a thank you to my readers of this blog, particularly to my readers from India. I’ve had a huge surge of readers from that region in that past few weeks and wanted to extend a warm thank you.
It baffles me that when I first started this blog, that I had 2 readers. One of them being myself.
Now I’ll get thousands of views per month on the 500+ posts I’ve made, from people around the world that I will most likely never meet.
And I’m just getting started.
Things like my Podcast, and my Finance Blog, all reach people I might never meet. And it’s amazing how much power I have in terms of influence.
And I am grateful for that.
Grateful for people who support my content.
What I’m afraid of right now is not actualizing my potential.
When I was 16, I self-studied psychology and learned that on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, that “self-actualization” was at the top.
I suppose to a subscriber to Maslow though, you could say that self-actualization is the meaning to life.
In a nutshell, self-actualization is achieving one’s full potential. Whatever that may be.
To achieve our potential, every decision we make needs to somehow push us forward. Even the failures. Even the missteps.
There is no such thing as “right” steps towards your transcendence.
There is only just living life in the aura of transcendence. That way, everything you do fulfills your potential.
