Going back to basics is one of the best tours of life. It is exactly how to supercharge our life purpose.
Truth is, we’ve been in this polite exchange between serving others and serving ourselves for the past year. It’s been nice but we are smarter now.
We all agree that “living to serve Me” sounds like a two year-old. We all agree that “living to serve others” sounds like pleasuring a martyr’s stake. Perhaps, as wise Solomon said, there is a time for everything, but most of our time is best spent where we will get our highest yield. I think of that place like a sphere, whose constitution are our basics.
Our basics are all about the wonderland of our biopsychosocial selves and including temperament.
Just as with “all” extremes, the truth is a bit of both. None of us can abandon our need (Me) to self-serve. None of us can abandon our need (Me) to serve others. The commonality in both is Me. Everything starts and ends with Me and that is our sphere’s constitution.
To review some of this, I jotted down:
medical illnesses including brain
things we are doing to ourselves
addictive and decadently enticing exercise
accountability to Me, and including Higher Power
starting over, and over, and over
things being done to you
the biopsychosocial condition of those we choose to be connected with
Don’t let this get past basic. If the list bugs you, throw it out. If it’s too long, shorten it.
