I'm sick and getting older

Postby desperate788 » Sun Jan 13, 2019 2:35 pm

I sometimes think I will die depressed and anxious without not achieving any of my dreams. I'm already 41. I will always sleep it seems and go to work worry about stuff.. I don't know if I should be thankful if a major problem doesn't occur.

Ooh, you fibber! I happen to know you won't be 41 until next month. I, on the other hand, have just turned 63... and I'm still pursuing my dreams.

Would you tell us what unfulfilled dreams you have?

Travel the world, working at a job i like, enjoying life with a girl friend, being able to drink alcohol with a nice meal, enjoying a movie.

I prefer your more positive dreams: world travel and good meals with the one you love by your side.

I like the idea of cooking gourmet food and drink wine by it together with the woman I love

We are only animals whose goal from the earliest times was survival, it is hard to expect that the state of so-called happiness will last. The brain is just chemical reactions and circulating electrons, so you can get a state of happiness with the help of appropriate techniques.
When you make your dreams come true, there will be more, the state of euphoria will pass away and you will realize that it really did not matter.
We are just golems and treating your body and your emotions as tools will make you take the right direction in life.

Then give up to pursue dreams as they will become meaningless when you get them? Indeed it's well known human nature I thought about it. Only thing left is survival which means a roof on top and food to eat in modern world.

The universal goal is happiness, some achieve it through eating, it gives them real happiness. Others go to work at the lowest national level and go on holiday once a year and then feel happiness. Others have arranged the right day's plan, and, for example, are meditating so that at the end of the day they can feel happiness and I respect the third ones because they treat their bodies as objects that need to be set and planned in order to work. The key to happiness is knowing how senseless our lives are.

Happiness through meditation..sounds good but hard to achieve. Holidays and food suits me more. Probably happiness through meditation is more intense beyond the happiness you get from food. And there is sexual desire it's quite strong it's something I don't have till 18. As a man I miss it.
