BECOMING: BECOMING VS. AGING PART ONE
BECOMING VERSUS AGING: What are you becoming(as you live your life in the ordinary, usual way, that most people do except in extraordinary circumstances and horrendous events,etc.)? Yes, WHAT ARE YOU BECOMING? OR, are you merely 'AGING'? Have you given up on becoming somone, the kind of person(or personality) you wanted to be, you still want to be, and all teh aims and goals inlife you once held? Are you still trying to improve yourself,improve your personality, improve your mind,improve your body, yourhealth, your income, your daily life,etc.? If so, in what ways? What are you actually doing? What are you truly doing? What efforts, great or small, are you making? And, are you helping others,whoever they are or might be, to do the same? Or is everything merely happening to you? Are events of any and all kinds simply occurring in your life,overwhelming you each hour, each day, each week, each month, each year? BECOMING is a special,creative process that is not merely 'aging" i8n various ways. Many attempt haphazard methods or let chance enter into it all. BECOMING also involves constructing a 'soul' which is an intense process involving or undertaking 'intentional' suffering, strenuous efforts called 'super-efforts' and controlling body, mind, and emotions through special ways, all called 'THE WORK' or 'THE SYSTEM'...among other things. All such 'becomings' are focused on 'REMEMBERING' THE 'SELF',of 'self-remembering', of sensing one's mechanisms and being present in life! BECOMING never ends, but aging does-in death. That is why it is necessary to construct a 'soul' and at present, you must begin with yourself, your body,your mind, your emotions at this very instant, the very moment, in your ordinary life as it is now, and create a line of effort and aim,or actually three lines of such.
