There are just few goals worth aspiring to in this life:
- Learning and Practicing [generates Power]
- Being of Service [generates Joy]
- Developing Relationships [generates Happiness]
and only three directions or levels these aspirations could be practiced in relation to:
- God or IS
- World and Nature
- Living Things
Everything else is just a need, want, desire, or a whim. It will get fulfilled as a side-effect of being after a true goal.
Say you want something, need something or simply would like to have something?! It will invariably fall into either Knowledge, Service or Relationship area. Seek to develop in that area to the highest level you can imagine, your ideal state, and in time you will get what you want as a side-effect. Simple as that. Guaranteed!
- way too many to list here

Quests. Questions. Being up to something. Game ON!
Everything you encounter during your Quest is either of distraction or of assistance.
Yet there is a lesson hidden in either. Remember about paying attention?!
Attention is the only universal currency.
At any given moment you have a choice what to give your attention to – something that moves you forward or something that is not. The choice is yours.
Trick: want to store up some energy necessary to pay attention? – find something you appreciate about whatever you are looking at at that particular moment. Can’t find anything? Keep searching until you do find!
Snap: don’t look at this text! Find something you appreciate about next thing you get distracted by! 😉
Warning: to multi-taskers, read this: The Multi-Tasking Myth
Notice or not, admit it or not, there is an ongoing drama in progress at all times. The freedom is in what role you choose to play. But the Game is always ON!
Trick: playing the game vs. owning the game.
