Because it cannot be bought, love is the rarest commodity in the world.
How can we get it, then? Where do we get the solutions to our problems?
In Albert Camus’ last university lecture, he put it beautifully:

"I believe...that it is awakened, revived, nourished by
millions of solitary individuals whose deeds and works every day
negate frontiers and the crudest implications of history. As a result,
there shines forth fleetingly the ever threatened truth that each and
every man, on the foundations of his own sufferings and joys,
builds for them all."
The solutions have to come from each of us, the very people
who need them. We all need love, so we all must give it.
This is the drive behind my efforts. I wish to spend my life serving
the people of our world, and to continually improve the way I serve it.

Prioritize Your Passion

Inspired by "This Is Why All Your Goals Are Bad For You" by Penelope Trunk.
Lift each other up "Start leading a conscious life" is key. I think the most important part of this post is Take action where your passion lives. However, what seems to be necessary to do that is to figure out what your passion(s) is(are). And what seems necessary to do that is to figure out what you enjoy doing as well as what is worth being passionate about. There are many, many things that we enjoy doing, but we unfortunately seem to enjoy entertaining ourselves the most. I think it is safe to say that the vast majority of the American population becomes passionate about goals that aim to allow them to entertain themselves and their family more.

Some good clean fun and relaxation is certainly imperative, and the amount of time needed is different for everybody. However, there has to be a cap on it, and leading one's life with that goal being the biggest is not very healthy. In fact that goal should be one of the smaller ones, if not the smallest.

I have "seem" in italics because in reality, entertaining ourselves has its uses, but it certainly doesn't do the job like maybe loving others or receiving love from others. What would be totally great would be to combine goals you are passionate about WITH goals to lift others up and help them reach their goals as well. In fact, over time I think we would find that the goals would not only merge smoothly, but they would begin to take on characteristics that don't reflect so much of the first set of goals. After all, doesn't helping other help us much more overall?
