"It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision"
"It gives me a deep comforting sense that "things seen are temporal and things unseen are eternal"
"Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But then there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see"
- Helen Keller
In my book I talk about Maslow's Hierarchy Of Needs. Abraham Maslow, if you were a good kid and paid attention at school, gave a graphic description of people's NEEDS in a big triangle thingie. On the bottom of the triangle thingie were the basic NEEDS we all NEED to SURVIVE, thingies like water, food, sleep and shelter. Then as we go further up triangle there are other NEEDS like love, security, and of course sex (not a need to survive but puts a smile on your dial if you don't!). Anyway for over three years now I have had to change my living conditions and adapt my WANTS and NEEDS to meet my severe shortage of that money stuff that helps buy the WANTS. And you know what dot? It sounds like a throwaway line, but the rock bottom place makes you adapt to having only what NEEDS you take on board to survive. And it's hard. It's depressing. And it sometimes makes you cry because you can't get the WANTS for a while. But if you keep your mind and body focused on getting off the rock bottom, TIME takes care of the sadness. You learn to live with the lack of WANTS and concentrate on surviving with the NEEDS. It is when you NEED STRENGTH. It is when you NEED BELIEF. It is when you NEED LOVE. It is when you NEED VISION. It is when you NEED TIME. It is when you NEED MSOT.
And there is one thingie you DON'T NEED for all of those thingies you do NEED. Strength, belief, love, vision, time and Mister SomeOne Out-There COST NOTHING. You have NO NEED for MONEY which you do NEED for your WANTS.
But when you condition yourself to NEED and not WANT for a long enough time period you realize that life does not require money or material possessions to exist.
So if you are fortunate like me to re-invent and begin your new life doing what you WANT to do, then you have a great chance to live your life according to your NEEDS which will make you happy. Those NEEDS are a source from your ..........
