Could a tree wonder where it is going with him? Rather not, a tree cannot go, how should he come on the idea to go a way and to arrive somewhere? That are only thoughts of a being, which possesses the possibility to be able to move. And suddenly it is no longer only the physical body, but immediately the whole spirit, the own thoughts, which must move constantly toward new goals and want to follow any ways. A fatal confusion. A bred confusion, because advertising, world views, propaganda, manipulation etc can work, and it works as everyone knows, which is also impressively proven by the enormous annually increasing budgets for exactly these purposes.
The great error to which we, every single human being, *always* run the risk of succumbing, is the identification of one's own soul with one's own thoughts.
However, one's own thoughts are usually not one's own at all, but are caused by external influences. This should also be so, so that you can adapt to circumstances fluently and analogously. If this succeeds, harmony between the entities force, space and time arises, in this state the soul can vibrate. If it does not succeed on longer life phases, chronic longings arise sometime, caused by a longing soul.
Even in childhood, such discordant periods do not have to be very long to cause post-traumatic stress disorder. This can become a strong motivator to want to move towards "goals" throughout life.
It is a constant running after the once lost natural harmony, *always* interwoven with the feeling of getting closer to it and yet it is never achieved. It can no longer be achieved in this way.
Some rush bigger, higher, further and see themselves in front, rejoice pseudo that the others are further behind - what nonsense, others make emergency stop, self-medication, drug addiction, addictions of any kind, very many compensate through many small tracts such as smoking, coffee, sex, also through dominance and humility and much more. From this point of view, the one,
- who *always* has to be "ahead" (fear of falling behind) just like the one,
- who *never* likes to commit (fear of becoming a target), or the,
- who *always* needs to experience something (fear of missing something), or the,
- who *always* wants to be in company (fear of standing alone), etc.
only compensatory traits developed, which deceptively keeps the own soul in sight. It is not the individual motives, but the automating *"over and over again "*, what lets run into the void.
The formula for healthy consciousness and harmony, however, is well known: Stop thoughts, shut up, and fasting combined with lots of jogging and cold showers.
However, this does not always fit with the obligatory roles of our social working life and the demands of responsibility towards other people, not only towards our own children. To accept this in all serenity, to be happy to have found something else compensatory instead of heroin and all the other offered destructions, can already give an excellent "standing" in which one's own soul will take its throne again. The body and also the supposedly own thoughts may run from here confidently sometimes here sometimes there, it is their nature to move. Their way is their goal.
