A reward is a gift of material someone receives because they earned it. I want to earn my gifts, not just receive gifts I do not earn. It is an earnest way of living. We need to earn our way through this world to be able to live our life respectfully. No body knows anymore what they truly desire because everybody feels they have everything they want already. It is probably because people use their emotions too much.
I do feel there are too many people in this world who use their emotions too much, hence, every one does. I think it is human nature. It still means we must control our emotions to enter in to a new realm of life. Emotions control us too much and even I have trouble with this. Emotions are Love, Anger, Sadness,… all related to feelings, moods, thoughts, and behaviors.
The emotions of our behaviors control our everlasting self all the time. It even controls animals too. Our emotions need to be controlled in times of fear. We can not fear anything. Like Yoda says, “Fear leads to anger, Anger leads to Hate, Hate leads to Suffering.” We all need to determine what we fear or what many things we fear, letting go of it.
More to come on this topic. It’s CANY time… learning drama acting. BTW, I am continuing reading Animals in Translation by Temple Grandin and finding it to be a fantastic book. Thank you to the person who gave this book to me as a gift. I really appreciate it and I love the book a lot. Now I feel like reading the book “Thinking in Pictures” which is another great book I heard many people say.
Take it easy,
