What do you really desire in life?
It’s cool. Just be honest. What do you really want in life?
Do you really want that Lamborghini? Do you really want that Leica? Do you really want that Gucci purse?
Don’t judge your desires, but ask yourself Why?
For example, I love sports cars. Why do I desire them? I want to feel powerful, sexy, and cool. I guess my self esteem is so low, that I need a car to esternalize my power, and perhaps lack of masculinity.
I desire money. Why? To use if as a tool to help my family, Cindy, and society.
Why do I seek to help others? It gives me a reason to wake up. Also by helping others, I feel strong and good about myself.
Desire is good
If you know why you desire what you do pursue it with wisdom.
I desire to help others. That is good. So I work hard, to help more people.
If you desire material things, you will probably not feel fulfilled. But I might be wrong. Just do you, and figure out yourself.
All wisdom is simple:
Do you know yourself, truly, honestly, without any self-censorship?
Things I have learned about myself:
- I like to joke around and be the center of attention. It makes me feel loved and appreciated. It also gives me a chance to flex my clever muscles.
- I am an artist: I was destined to be an artist since I was a kid, my mom guided me. When I was in the 4th grade, my teacher selected me to go to the special art school for talented young kids in Middle School in New York. Yet, my family moved. I missed that train, but now I’m playing catch up. I’m doing digital art on the iPad, fucking with Picasso paintings, and making photos, poetry, and all for s of art.
- Creation is everything: If I could not create, it would be like having blue balls. Or severe constipation. To create is my release. The more I create and innovate, the happier I am.
