Pursue what you want or pursue what you need. A line need be drawn between the deserving and the cheat.
- E. Noe Neemus
We live entire lives looking for a reason to justify our existence. Only in moments of extreme despair does the trivial nature of ‘existence’ arrive upon us, and that too only to be discarded by our well-honed confirmation biases. We can blame the entire world for the inconsequential greatness that we perfect with years of good-natured malice and when that isn’t enough we even concoct entities out of the luminiferous ether to serve as a receptacle for our leftover reproach.
The need to find a purpose seems inherent, but is it really? If you are too busy perfecting something on someone else’s endeavour, and are so committedly engrossed in its realization that the thought of questioning and validity the purpose doesn’t even occur, will the first moment that you put down your tools, due to some godforsaken reason, be the moment that the light of questioning penetrates your decidedly biased brain?
Will your reasoning be strong enough to generate questions that are right and comprehend answers that challenge your flawed logic? If the pain of re-birthing into a thinking organism is too great to bear is it not better to be a biological machine with flesh and blood organs for nuts and bolts parts?
Any entity that has the faculty to make repeated decisions is faced regularly with the conundrum of making the right ones on multiple occasions in the pursuit of a single first set goal. Among the most certain ways that expose the failing of our being is the time-dishonoured recommendation to keep an eye at the ultimate goal in the barrage of decisions that demand being taken, like a cheap prostitute in the thoughtless back alleys of your psyche, for a quick release of pent up responsibility and a quick surge of momentary satisfaction. It gets increasingly difficult to focus on the ultimate well-thought aim when there are quick decisions of a digressing nature to be taken on a regular basis and indulge our need to be responsible for our own demise.
If everything you do, contributes to the ultimate cause you are a winner on an evolutionary scale. That is how life as we know it came into being - survival being the aim. With every conscious detour we take, thoughtlessly, on the route of our lives, we almost prove that the tipping point of human evolution has passed us and a tendency to the reverse will make sure that most of us are compacted into statistics.
Profligacy of our decisions needs to be balanced by the austerity of our aspiration.
