Life… if it actually was that easy! If only our day to day choices weren’t governed by that single most important factor…! Yup, money!
But wait. There is some hope, still.
This below, is an info-comic by Zen Pencils…with words and thoughts of Alan Watts.
I hope this helps us all understand the importance and need of self-actualization vs. the artificial stuff which is actually running our lives for us today.
From the Zen pencils site -
Alan Watts (1915-1973) was an English philosopher and writer who played a large part in popularising Zen Buddhism in the west. He gained a wide following after moving to the United States where he published numerous books on Zen and Eastern philosophy. During the 60s and 70s he toured extensively on the college lecture circuit and became a celebrity among the growing youth movement. Watts had over 25 books published and recorded over 400 lectures, many of which have found a new audience on YouTube.
It surely depends on what you want Vs. what you need, but ultimately if what you do makes you happy, it will eventually help you pay your bills and more…
