“…simply make things better for someone else, as if I were to be born again, and that someone else, and it doesn't have to be me, but it could be someone like me, that they would have a better life than I had, that everyone was better. There is something seriously wrong with everyone, and that is something I observed when I was very young. We are the problem, and we need to become better, because we are fucking everything up.”
“So this is who I am. There is something seriously wrong with everyone and we need to fix it, if not for us, then for the future generations."
"Everything I have done in this life, and everything I will do, is for this purpose.”

Creating Your Future Practically

I am looking for myself at the process of practically creating my future through planning and specifying. So, I have in the past worked with planning my future. And I am sure most people have made plans before. But one mistake that I have made is daydreaming about my plans, where it is not grounded in reality and has more of an air of fantasy, like a movie. Which in movies, you tend to feel excited, and good or positive. Which is a mistake. Because as my experience revealed to me, such airy plans don't come to fruition and are easily challenged and broken down. Why? Because they were never grounded in reality. So if you are someone that tends to make a lot of plans for yourself, but very few if any of those plans actually are realized then you can look at this point for yourself that perhaps your planning was more emotional and fantasy-like than actually practical, supportive, and real.

Now, when I looked at planning or creating my future, there is a real depth within me that opens up. Because to really create or plan my future my real self needs to step forth which by nature has a depth. This substantiates the plan and so my future. It makes the future real within me. In comparison to before with the daydream, I was more within my mind and what I felt and thought. There wasn't a depth.

So from this depth I am recognizing what is valuable, what will surely be part of my future. These include people, because people are valuable. So recognizing the people that will surely be part of my future. And how I will expand and include them more in my future. Where the relationships will expand. Where I see the value of expanded relationships, and how that is taking my further into my future, and who I will become.

Future becomes myself, an extension, a reflection, a decision and statement. It becomes my plan, my script, my agenda, my future. Planning your future is a deeply intimate act with yourself. You need to be honest and delve into the depths of yourself to access who you are for real, and so what you will do with your life. How you would like to change and who you would like to develop into. Your future is your seat, your place of self-creation. And Yes, such things as career choices, responsibilities, jobs, people, location, moving, hobbies, exploration, and money are part of that future. So all of these points are considered yes, but they are considered within the context of WHO YOU ARE, and that is essential. Otherwise who or what are you planning a future for if not you? So being real with yourself and being intimate with yourself is the only real way to plan a future for yourself. And perhaps the only real way to produce actual results as well.

So listening to yourself, accessing yourself is where to start living for real.
