What am I supposed to do with all of this newly acquired summer free time I suddenly have??
I have no bills to pay, no school to go to, and no real problems facing me!! (i still live with my parents- one problem facing me is their struggles and suffering.)
There is so much to do in Orange County. Why cant i think of something? Anything?? I know! I’ll go for a hike in Santiago Canyon and do some reconnecting with mother nature!
In this part of the world, there is a real disconnection with anything real. We find somethings that are “real” in the every day dynamics of our lives, such as communicating with loved ones or connecting with strangers, or allowing our minds to become relaxed by doing an activity we love to do. But other than those moments, most of our lives spent in society is working: working to get a pay check or working to maintain the status quo.
You have to be aware of where your mind is at. you have to try and view your mind as a psychologists would: what your drives are, what your desires are, what your thinking about and how your feeling.
Free-time can be spent reconnecting with your Self. Or it can be wasted with distraction- a leading away from things that cannot be taken away, such as peace.
