Recently I felt a couple of realizations that I thought were clear but got a reminder that this process is always happening.
I remembered a French friend that visited me. He had a pretty weird way of seeing things which is ok since everything that’s not familiar is weird but now I see what he means.
My friend suggested that everyone is swinging from extreme to extreme (left and right of the pendulum)
I don’t quite remember how I replied to that but I’m pretty sure I mentioned something about The Middle Way which is a Buddhist concept where you reject the two extremes.
Now, what is the point of mentioning all this?
Well I just fucking realized I’m swinging on the pendulum lol. Just 1 year ago, I wanted to build a million dollar business and happily live in a luxurious home as a capitalist.
Right now, I don’t want any of that shit anymore and I just want to live off my backpack and move around indefinitely. I’m selling everything I own and leaving my current lifestyle because they don’t mean anything to me now.
Maybe that changes in the future but that’s how I feel now so I’ll stick with it.
Am I confused? Hell yeah lol but this time I’m following my gut so there’s no doubt it’s going a chill direction.
