The following is a most recent culmination of thought that has provided a way to discover how to navigate my life, and I offer it as a vehicle for others to find answers to questions they may or may not have thought of. If what others think is true may not be what you do, interpretations should differ.
Thoughts of the past and future are dependent on existing in the present.
If we think, we are. We were who we think we were. We are what we think we are.
If nothing changes, we may or may not be who we think we’ll be.
If what was, is, or will be is uncertain, the only certainty appears to be present thought.
We may not actually know some of what we think we know.
What we don’t know we don’t know is more than we think.
What is may have been before the beginning, and may still be after the end.
Some of what we need, we don’t know or can’t choose to do, like hunger or thirst.
To exist in the present, we must have acquired enough need in the past to make it happen.
Need appears to be thought, sustenance, hygiene and a temperate climate.
Threatened need alters thought.
The less you think you need, the easier it is to take care of.
Want is everything else, but you have to acquire need to get it.
Over-prioritizing present want can sacrifice future need.
In want is not how much but how happy, Wealth = Happiness If want depends non purposefully not understanding need, what looks obtainable may not be.
Want can be eliminating unneeded.
In time, we “do” in the present, so doing nothing is choosing to do something.
Creating a higher likelihood of a better present by securing need and achieving want in the shortest time with the least risk, by thinking of what to don and when, relative to what was and what could happen after what may happen next.
If thought is both logical and emotional, what we do is too.
If what we think was derived from choice or influence, what we think is may not be.
If emotion occurs before thought, reaction can precede comprehension.
Some of what we think we know, we don’t.
Don’t think you need want, want what you can’t get, or think you know what you don’t.
What to do should be an optimal point between need and want.
There may be less risk and greater return in learning from other people’s mistakes before having to learn from your own.
If there’s less risk and higher return in a plan fitting circumstances, than circumstances fitting a plan; acknowledge, adjust and overcome.
If not thinking isn’t, it’s not about what could’ve been or what may someday, it’s about what we do now.
Have as much fun as soon as possible, with the least amount of risk for as long as you can.
