Where do you start when considering essentials? I was daydreaming today while driving arouind. I know this is not the most appealing combination of activities. I wasn't fully invested in daydreaming, really, but more I have had an awareness lurking somewhere just beneath my consciousness so it manifests quite regularly in my thoughts, dreams, and daydreams.
For much of the past few years, I have felt as if I am on the cusp of a major revelation. What does that mean? Who knows, it is still just beneath my consciousness. I feel inadequate to describe it. What do I need to do to more fully actualize this potential?
My thinking today was along the lines of absolute simplicity of lifestyle. I am not quite sure what this means either, and this is what I was pondering. As I filled the tank of my little Honda Civic to the tune of $33.46, I was glad for only a 13 gallon tank. Gas was $2.89 a gallon. The president came on the tv today urging us as citizens to be conscious of resources. Does this mean do not head to Galveston for some beach time?
Gas is an essential. How much gas is optional.
Without going to extremes, how do you evolve toward a more conscious use of resources? How long is a good test of your willpower? Do you make a deliberately achievable goal like a week? A month?
What do you relinquish?
Maybe I should have taken that nap rather than posting.
