How to be a human being, without money.
« on: March 02, 2008, 08:44:18 PM »
Here's a few ideas.

  • Running/Walking/Swimming/Callisthenics, for record time.
  • Read a book from a public library, learn something new about the world.
  • Meditate on the fact that you are going to die.
  • Start a social revolution, be the change you seek in the world.
  • Look into the eyes of an animal, try to see it's purity.  Connect personally with it, bridge the gap.
  • Pick some fruit, and eat it like a caveman.
  • Go into the bush, and make your peace with mother nature.
  • Invite others to share these activities.

I've deliberately excluded activities involving our breeding instincts, the list would be too long  ;)

Please add to the list, let's keep it going.

If you have kids that are still young enough they haven't been ruined by pop culture, take them outside and do all the stuff you loved when you were that age.  Find some monkey bars at a park and they'll have fun and you'll get a real workout.

Excellent suggestion - on many levels.

Those are both good ones. It's basically different takes on the biblical view of Godly contentment and not contentment through man-made "things".

I have my own version that I like to use:
The less you need to be happy, the happier you will be.
