Happy + Fulfilled

The things we think will make us happy and fulfilled:

– More stuff
– More money
– Big title
– Power and control
– No responsibilities
– TV
– Overeating
– Overdrinking
– Isolation
– Comfort
– Ease

The things that typically do make us happy and fulfilled:

– Reduction of stuff
– Relationship of sufficiency with money
– Big service
– Love and flourishing of others
– Meaningful responsibilities
– A book, a walk, 5 minutes of silence
– Putting foods in our bodies that fuel and nourish us
– Not numbing our lives but being awake to them
– Connection
– Struggle with something hard and worth doing
– Pain

The whispers of the second path won’t compete for our attention with the screaming of the first.
