"Nothing is work unless you'd rather be doing something else."
I woke up this morning to a cup of hot coffee and madness trying to get my kiddos to school. Once the madness was over and I had a little time to relax outside in our breezeway with the now slightly warm coffee I started thinking. "I've got to write the next blog in the series this morning before I get on to the real work," I told myself, but I really just couldn't get motivated to do it. So I decided not to. I started thinking, as I often do when the wife and youngsters were still sleeping and the boyos were at school.
I decided to change the world this morning. I decided that I needed to follow my heart and become the person that I'm made to be. I've thought of doing this for a long time, and finally the time has come to move toward it. Never straight, but ever onward as they say.
My goal in life is to create a world that is exactly what I want for myself and my children. It's possible because it has to be possible. The world is turning and it's time for the most significant change since science took hold. Science and magick will be recombining in my lifetime and will be one and the same within my children's lifetime. That's a definite. Quantum physics is moving that way already and there is no one on the magickal end pushing for it. Well we need someone to push for it. I'd like to be that guy.
I am motivated by two things: money and emotions. That's it. Pretty simple isn't it? Well, emotions are the driving force in my life. I make enough money to do what I want in life. It isn't enough to live in a mansion or quit my job, but it's enough to put food on the table and keep my car insured. My emotions are taking a hit though. I work far too much and see my family far too little without anything that I would consider success. I'm not changing the world into what I want my children to grow up in. So I must keep my job and still work at changing the world. It's a tall order, but it's something I'm prepared to do.
I do not have the funding currently to pay people what they deserve to be paid. In truth, I can't pay anything at all. That's the problem with starting something that is unheard of. No one will help to fund something like that because investment in madness is madness. So I ask you, if no one is crazy enough to be the change they need to see in the world, when will the world change? Why aren't you one of the people who should change the world? Politicians don't change anything. Look at the current state of affairs. This is after a campaign completely designed around change. The rich don't want anything to change. They've made their money from the current world.
"A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. In fact, it's the only thing that ever has."
So why shouldn't you be the one to make the world into the place you want your children to live? Why aren't you the one who should pick up the sword or pen and change it any way you can? It's not enough for me to simply stand by and talk to someone about how things should be. We will never live in the world we desire if all we do is talk about things. We need action. We need motion. We need progress.
Today is the day to start. Even if it's just planning because even if we move a single step forward, that's a step that we won't have to take later.
So I ask you again. Why aren't you changing the world today?
