We are all slaves

"You work 8 hours to live 4.
You work 6 days to enjoy 1.
You work 8 hours to eat in 15 minutes.
You work 8 hours of sleep 5.
You work all year just to take a week or two vacation.
You work all your life to retire in old age.
And contemplate only your last breaths.
Eventually you realize that life is nothing but a parody of yourself practicing your own oblivion.
We have become so accustomed to material and social slavery that we no longer see the chains.. "
Life is a short journey, live it!

Well said. We as a culture have sacrificed our better years for the betterment of others, while what benefit does it give? I've heard people express before, we have this all wrong, when we are young we should be out exploring, invoking our spirits, but instead most of us work during this time and the only time we are given time to relax is when we are no longer useful (productively)....

Is there a way to change this? In mindset and philosophy, yes...

Try managing your own business. 😅 You know..I had these thoughts when having a full time job and yes, the free time aspect sucks but there are days when I'd gladly just get on the bus, punch in, do bare minimum all day, leave after 8,5 hours and still get paid. 😅

We usually do the worst things to ourselves. Because we allow it to happen!

The sugar tastes sweet, until we get diabetes.

Pretty soon this economy will need to start taking insulin instead of sugar.
You earn the money in this paddock..
spend the money in paddock number 2.
Entertain and graze in paddock number 3.
Don’t go going into your own paddocks thinking you can do your own thing…

The truly sad part of this is that it is a fact and most people think it's a conspiracy.

I love this and hate the reality of it
