My post re-blogging a fab article about the concept ‘busy’ and people too busy and using the excuse of being busy highlighted the fact that many of us are busy doing things that are pointless. If there was only 5 more days til world’s end would your day job still be important – even Doctors would struggle to answer positive to that one, NASA, on the other hand might be in with a chance. What I am getting it as that most of us are busy trying not to dwell on the fact that our work is essentially pointless for mankind and the world. Give yourself a pat on the back if you feel you genuinely contribute to a person or the earth’s wellbeing.
So you spend most of your time doing this pointless s*** when you really want to be spending time with your children or going for a spot of fishing – neither of which pay the goddamn bills we need to pay in order to exist.
Then you have people fleeing their war torn oppressive countries who are just thankful to be out of that situation and following a path they hope leads to more hope.
I’m not sure what the answer is for all of us. I think humanity has come a long way in 100 years or has it just become more divided……?
We still have a long way to go til we finally figure it out.
