Sometimes I think about why we are all so off-kilter in Western society. I mean, you can hardly call us balanced when we work far more than we play and we need more and more aid from pharmaceutical companies to convince us to continue.
I wonder too, as evolution prepared us over the millenia, how our instincts to acquire food through gathering and hunting work against us in the artificial reality that we all agree to live in. If only our instinct was to acquire money, life would be so easy. Because then it would feel natural to start businesses and climb the corporate ladder.
Instead, we are the proverbial fish out of water. Only we have been brainwashed to think we're still in the river.
Now is the time for harvest and hoarding if we respect the calendar of our evolutionary roots.
Maybe that's why I'm in such a funk even though I've been off work for 6 weeks.
