delayed gratification

Life really is about delayed versus instant gratification.

Material acquisition is a delicate balance, a fine line to walk within your being.

To have is to hold. How you hold things is important and will lead to happiness or not.

The frenetic pace of our lives tempts us with instant gratification...often short-lived.

I ask you this: is long-term happiness the goal?

Then we must weather our emotional storms and fight the urge to owN, oWN, OWN, OWN! MINE, MINE, MINE, MINE!

Only a fool does not see that the current rate of resource consumption will lead to scarcity, changes in the weather patterns, and if continued, drought, famine, disease and finally death of species.

Being happy is the goal and true happiness comes from letting your desires cool off and gleaning their lessons over time.

Desire has its proper time and place. You are here to find the proper channeling of your desires. May they lead not to destruction or demise.

the risK of expediency - shutter effect

everything has its own proper flow of time. one must be attentive to the juxtaposition of perceived flow versus actualized flow.

rushing decisions or unnecessarily delaying decisions will tamper your perceptions and expose you to endangerment and/or stupidity.

constant rushing or constant unnecessary delaying leads to psychological neurosis of all measures and eventually to maladies of the body.

finding the flow is thus crucial to your survival and maintaining it once found may lead to long-term happiness.

sync up your mind-body-spirit triad and hunt the flow whose home is beyond all doors.
