Free Your Mind Friday *Week three*

8 Feb

This week’s question:

If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

Well, I think it is the obligation of belonging to society, this society. Most folks have to work a job for a living. And most folks aren’t working a job they absolutely love. We have to work to have shelter and to buy food and pay for transportation. Society has convinced most of us that we need 300 television channels, high speed Internet, iPhones and other tangible goods.

We are obligated to work to fulfill the obligation of paying bills. For most, those obligations take up the time we would like to spend doing the things we actually like doing. In those brief instances when we have a free moment, we are too tired to do anything but flip through those 300 television channels while complaining there’s nothing on.
