Achieving at what cost?

Excerpt from If Only I Had A Horse.

“Recognize, first and foremost, that the main purpose of your experience is to enjoy the experience of existence.

That, dear friends, does not mean that you spend a great deal of time traveling, going from point to point, place to place, always searching, always looking of where to go.

Rather, it suggests that the experience of the journey is spent being observed being enjoyed, and, as well, being experienced.

Now, for each and every one of you, a great deal of your own existences have been experienced from a certain perspective. Yet, from another perspective, how many of you are actually conscious of each interaction, each moment of observation that you have had throughout your existence?

Most of you have spent a great deal of time moving to a certain point, trying to achieve something – become a good parent, become a good lover, become a good father, a good mother, becoming a good lawyer, a good accountant, a good business person, and a great deal of time [is] spent moving in that direction.

Individuals accumulate a great deal of material wealth in order to use that material wealth as a measure of their particular accomplishments, and as a result, therefore, greater material wealth, greater material accomplishment equates that way.

Yet how many have actually viewed their particular existence, their particular experience from the perspective of the existence of their particular existence. View it from this perspective. Not many individuals themselves see the opportunities, the situations, the choices they make on a moment-by-moment perspective of their own existence. Rather, they see the end result.”
