Do as thou wilt, and that will be the whole of the law. Part Deux.

Do as thou wilt, and that will be the whole of the law.

Go out, do what you wanted to always do. Nothing is stopping you.

Think about it, people make excuses all the time, every day, for not going out and following their "dreams" and doing what would make them happy.

Instead they keep working the job they hate, and keep paying the bills that they loathe in order not to shake anything up. The fear of short term loss out weighs the anticipation of long term gain in most cases. I would go so far as to say that this is human nature. It is certainly the reason battered women dont leave their abusers. It is definitely why most people dont just say to hell with bosses, bills and bulls, and just make a run for it to find out how far they can go.

Some people live exciting lives, and are alive in every sense of the word because they do not have the fear of short term loss. Look at the most exciting person you know, odds are very good that they live an exciting life because they take risks, and are living with less fear than most people.

Fortune favors the brave, and if that is so, this society is as poor, poor as they come.

So far we have done a horrible job of living the lives we always wanted to live when we were kids. I dont know about you, but when I was a child, I did not day dream about interfacing with a lifeless machine for most of my waking life. I wanted to live an exciting life, and do all sorts of exciting things. I wanted to adventure. That is what I am doing now.

I just cannot be content selling my life away pennies at a time in order to get the minimum necessities I need to "survive".

It is possible to live amazingly well without the car, and the house, and the trophy wife and kids.

When I say live, I mean feel alive. The kind of alive you feel when you are working on your hobbies, watching a beautiful sunset, or doing something exciting with your friends.

Bulls = Police
Living, Alive, Life = Happiness in the moment, whatever moment that is.
Whole of the Law = Doing what thou wilt. Usually in an effort to feel alive (see Living, Alive, Life)
