What If Money Was No Object?

In roughly 11 more days I will be losing my job and beginning the next adventure in my life.  And while I don’t quite know where my next journey will take me I do know that a wave of calm and peacefulness has fallen over me.  It is certainly unusual to be facing unemployment at this stage of life during these troubling economic times and to not be stressed about the uncertainty of what lies ahead.  Maybe it hasn’t sunk in or maybe I’ve just accepted that there is no point in worrying about something I have no control over.   Or, it could be that losing a job I couldn’t stand and that was sucking the life out of me bears no ability to provoke fear within me.  Either way, I just have this presence about me that knows it will all work out.

A while back I came across a beautifully inspiring video on youtube that features a few minutes of an Alan Watts lecture.  I thought at this juncture in my career it would be appropriate to share with my readers in case any of you are facing similar circumstances as me.  It also may benefit anyone who finds themselves at a point in life where they just can’t seem to find any meaning to what they are doing.  I hope it stirs something within you and gives you a different perspective to what we have otherwise been subtly taught through years of social and economic manipulation.  Whatever road I take next will lead to happiness regardless of where the money takes me.

    I’m happy to hear that you are approaching this new journey in your life with such peace and optimism. I’m afraid that I would be stressing like crazy! If money is no object perhaps you can buy your economically disadvantaged sister a Nikon D3200 and a platinum Rolex. Oh, and a Range Rover would be nice.

      I think it boils down to this, I’ve come to the point where I will no longer allow others to hold power over me. And they do this through fear; fear of losing something we want to hold onto. Whether it be a job, comforts of life, fear of losing kids, etc. I finally realized it wasn’t them, rather it was me who was allowing that fear to manifest and fester. Listen to the song by the Eagles, I think it’s called “Already Gone.” “So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains and we never even know we have the key.”

        That’s a good way to approach life Todd. I’m happy you’re taking back your “power”. That Eagles song is a good song. It also says, “Well I know it wasn’t you who held me down”. It’s true that people can only control and manipulate us if we allow them to do so, and you’re right, they so often do so through the use of fear tactics. Preying on our fear of being alone, losing something we hold dear, or simply our low self-esteem. As for no longer allowing others to hold power over you, that’s awesome, but remember that a Wilson female by universal law, will always hold power over a Wilson male simply because of our superiority! :p
