What does your life operating system include today? For most, you may just be trying to get by each day. You’re operating out of life or death. So long as you continue to function, you don’t often care to think about if it is the right way to be.
We rarely think for ourselves of this correctness because we are a Google search away from an answer on how we should live. But this limits any sort of original thought. Instead we become a parrot of what others do and say.
One day however, you might find yourself tired of other’s perspectives. Your mind, body, and soul will tell you they’ve had enough. That you will need to re-center to find who you really are and make changes to your life operating system.
This becomes the next life or death situation. You don’t know who you are. You’ve always lived other people’s lives, but never your own. You haven’t found your meaning in life yet nor have a clue where to begin.
So you start with one of these major components of the average operating system. You might find working out regularly to be that missing piece and how you wish you would’ve started years ago.
But then something else is missing…so you start renting books from the library to pick-up reading again in your spare time. Even more lightbulbs go off and you realize that the gym helped you realize that reading was actually the missing thing in your life.
And yet something is still not right. While you feel rich in knowledge and physically capable of doing what others cannot, you are still in desperate search for a soul.
The world however is always listening. It hears your cry and starts to send you signals of where to look. The logos starts to provide you with these hidden messages through your unconscious being.
Your dreams become more noteworthy. Your pursuits for wisdom are a constant priority. You start to live for something rather than simply persist. You’ve found what you stand for as a human and now can start being.
Life seems different this time around however. You are much more aware of what’s going on in the world. You’ve developed a new sense of empathy, a new understanding of how things actually work, and a new meaning for what it means to live a good life.
You start to live by principles. You are hell bent on doing the right thing because you know that the universe will always reward you for doing so. You find little joy in material things because you know that the only person you want to impress is future you.
Everyday becomes a new software patch to update your life’s operating system. You spend every day getting a little wiser than you were yesterday. You are no longer worried about trying to be intelligent, but you’re trying to be consistently not stupid.
You see that the beauty of life is now helping other humans know more. That the thirst of wisdom you constantly wonder about is the same drive you wish upon others so that they too can one day change their life. You know however that it is not your place to ever infer it on them, but you are here for them when they are ready.
There’s no rush to get rich quick. You know everything worthwhile in life comes through the process of getting there. That patience is a virtue for a reason because the process happens in the waiting.
The love you have desired your entire life is now part of this waiting game because you are now worthy of it. You have already attracted the perfect companion and now it is up to you to live life enough to find them if you haven’t already.
You grow older and wiser with them. They become the mirror of reality to show you aspects of your character that hurt you to see, but make you aware of your shortcomings. You become a better person through their love and desire to overcome yourself.
You may have kids and your life operating system then receives some breaking changes. Everything you have learned up until the point of your first being born has prepared you for this moment. That everything you knew about love was wrong.
The parental duty becomes your new meaning in life. The confusion sets in, now belonging to the baby down the hall. Your love for creation has just emerged after lying dormant your entire life.
You will raise those kids and your patience will be tested to limits you’ve never experienced. You now realize that love is one of the most powerful forces in the world. That by loving a non-person enough, they become their own person.
You feel it coming back again. Everyday becomes life or death, but more complicated now that you’ve experienced real love. You instead would sacrifice your life at any given moment for them. You forget yourself for the sake of another. Your life becomes selfless.
Up until now you have lost and gained things you weren’t aware of. You went through an ego death. You’ve been humbled. The existential dread no longer lingers. You no longer fear the future, because you are it.
You start to find freedom because you live in truth. Becoming wiser allows you to perceive —
