Why do we not do what is good for us?
That yoga practice , less food , less TV , more sleep , less toxicity generally.. What makes us so lazy , avoidant , desirous.
I know that we go on about the ego, sub-conscious sabotage but really. Is it that deep?
I think life is just too easy. Too on tap. Too much choice. Our minds and lives are so flooded with stuff , people , commitments , lures , that we are just incapable of being still. We have lost our way. Our brains are wired for constant attention. Sometimes I long for eras long past. Where there was no television, or entertainment of an instant type. Where you had to seek experiences , read books , write . Where you met and spent time with family and friends playing games and dancing to guitars and pianos and ukuleles . It just feels like there is no going back on this world. It’s changed irrevocably and charged with a menace that isn’t going to leave. They say the age of awakening is coming. I hope so.
