That Which Is For You, Will Always Come To You
Nowadays, with social media, people have displayed self-sufficiency, and independence, sometimes to the point of arrogance, and cockiness. Don’t get me wrong — I’m happy to see others doing well, and I see nothing wrong with being tactfully proud of accomplishments. I can even dig a little bragging. What I can’t understand is: when I see people, seemingly, proud of chasing things.
I’m positive that I’m not the only person who has seen memes that state things such as: ” Me Chasing Money #MCM“. I don’t get why anyone would be happy and proud to admit that they chase money. If a job has you chasing money, and that makes you feel good about yourself, to me, that’s occupational masturbation — it feels good, but it will never produce life. It’s not producing life if it’s wearing you out — in fact, it’s producing death. The whole idea of this life experience — producing life — growth. I refuse to chase anything or anyone. It’s tiring, and chasing something does not mean that you’re going to catch it.
When you’re chasing something, you’re focused on a target. And as you move towards that target, it’s moving away from you. Obviously, it’s faster than you, otherwise, it wouldn’t be ahead of you. Why wear yourself out, chasing something that you may never acquire?
This isn’t limited to money, but also dreams and other people. We’re conditioned to go after what or who we want, and to chase our dreams. Observing, and not chasing, is the only way to achieve your wealth, destiny, or soulmate, without wearing your body, mind, and soul out. What is the point of having wealth, your dream career, and love, if you’re too tired to enjoy them?
Observing Instead of Chasing
Only you know what you want and need. When you truly know this, you’ll see yourself in the life that you desire. Regardless of what you do, or where you are, you’ll see yourself in your dream position — even in the worst of times. When this becomes a habit (and that won’t take long), you’ll begin to acclimate yourself to that lifestyle. In doing this, you’ll research, experiment, and talk to others who are already doing what you would like to do. Don’t consider it working towards a goal, but instead, call it working on yourself. As you observe, learn, and prepare yourself for what’s to come, you’ll see that there was never any reason to chase anything, or anyone, because the life, as well as the people that you desire, will begin to come to you. This will make you grateful, but not surprised, because you’ll have conditioned yourself to believe that you’ve always had those things. While everyone else who chose to chase the same things, are tired from trying to catch something that’s trying to get away from them, you’ll have the energy to enjoy what came to you.
Chasing things indicates worry. You’re worried that the thing that you want will get away from you, so you’re trying to catch it, before it does. Contrarily, when something is trying to get away from you, you should let it. If it’s trying to get away, it’s not yours. It doesn’t love and want you, as you love and want it or them. Know that, in the end, things will work out (as they always do), so chill, relax, and take care of yourself. Devise a plan that will make you into a better person who is ready for their destiny when it arrives.
Why Would You Chase What’s Already Yours?
I’m not suggesting that you “wait on it“, because waiting sucks. I’m only saying, take the time to condition your mind, body, and soul to recognize what is already yours. Take Amy’s advice — observe, don’t chase. If it’s yours, it will come to you.
