@polymoog here is my 2 cents on this:
Manifesting desires is in the realm of the unseen ones and is always at a cost.
For centuries paganites have played this game at a cost of misguidance and a lack of true spirituality.
Yet even then they can not get all their results because they are not in control of All results.
Our life should not be desire driven but purpose driven.

Chasing desires in excess is slavery:
“Desire makes slaves out of kings, while patience makes kings out of slaves.”

― Imam Al-Ghazali

Look around you........
Everything around us has a purpose and it is lamentable that people are too busy chasing desires (solely) instead of chasing their purpose. (will leave some thoughts and videos at islamic vids)
Chasing desires is like being involved in constant play and amusement. Moreover some people no longer differentiate between lawful desires and unlawful desires which has foisted immorality and corruption in the world.
So I will wrap up this discussion for now. Welcome to this thread.

What about reading in bed with a cuppa tea or coffee and watching the rain fall?:p:)
Thanks for your contribution and welcome to this thread!
I have a dedicated reading space for that...sitting, though, not laying down. Otherwise I just pass out again.

Getting rid of toxic people will definitely improve your quality of life in no time and will leave you headspace to focus on more important things than drama, gossip and negativity.

Staying active. Even if it's just walking. Find ways where you can be more active and your quality of life will skyrocket. For example, you live in a condo or apartment and you're on the 7th floor. Use the stairs going both up and down.

Absolutely agree, one must manage their environment offline and online .

Yup that is a strategy another one is keeping it at hi and bye.

Agreed! it was a difficult habit to start but now the daily walk is enjoyable!

Towards the end of the day you are aware if you appeared that day with the best version of yourself which is +1 stepping forward into growth or -1 which is negative steps.
Making that choice moment to moment towards growth is living with excellence.
+1 or -1 (which way are you headed?! :)

It's never disappointing to listen to the (now late) Sir Ken Robinson. Always an inspiration and one to challenge one's perspective of the world. Such a poignant statement when he says, "Nobody has ever lived your life, and nobody else ever will. You're a unique moment in the whole of human history". So true!

Gonna have to give this a watch.


So I’m off for two weeks. Using this as a time for a much needed relax from working so much.

Finally able to put together a home gym, enjoy my youngsters.

Sounds kinda stupid but the wife and I dressed up last night and had a little candle lit dinner. We were supposed to go out back in march but covid hit. And given our busy work schedules, we finally decided to just have a night in.

But this thread made me appreciate time and goals as I have a chance to reflect with time off
