The reason for everybody’s life is different

The reason for everybody’s life is different

If you take in account every invention that has existed up until this time, neither of it is pertinent to sustaining life itself. Yes we need computers and programs to help us manage our activities in business and in life but it isn’t pertinent to living. In reality the best invention was clothing, and that cane much before sliced bread. In the realm of everything humanity has accomplished neither of it is really all that important. 
Yes inventions are great; I like to have my own drone that I fly around the household when I’m bored. I like to have pen and paper to write my thoughts but just like Jay Z says, “more money more problems” – similarly; The more materialistic things you have the more problems you have. 
Unfortunately if everyone looked at life similarly to the way I do we wouldn’t get anything accomplished and the economy would collapse forcing us to aggregate a properly laid out government but that’s for another discussion. Without passion, goals, ambitions and a progressive attitude you’re going to remain complacent kind of like myself at times. I find accomplishment to be overrated and forces us off the path of righteousness; to understand ourselves and to sustain a healthy emotional state at all times.
All too often we get thrown off course because petty inventions made us jealous. When you think of it, the majority of our ambition came from being jealous of others. In fact the Government and economic commercialism forces its audience to pursue petty things to ensure the economy continues to rise. This isn’t wrong it’s just what we’ve become.
 You may be wondering all this talk about materialism how does it relate to life and our purpose within it? More so, you may be asking yourself how does this relate to me? 
Materialism is very much a big part of all our happiness especially in the Western world. The problem is; it strays us away from achieving a happy mindset. Basically it forces us to lose our focus on finding ourselves. This reciprocating cycle is constituted through the media and through Government plans to increase economy. It’s understandable in the realm of modern politics to harness this quality of reasoning for the importance of materialism and inventions but the truth is; materialism will only forge a larger difference between you and lasting happiness. 
I’m getting to the reasoning behind your questions…
Being that each of us are emotionally attached somehow to materialism; whether we use it as a goal to move forward in our daily lives, or say your car for example you wanted one because it makes your life easier, even simple little things like cutlery, coffee cups and houseware items these too fit in the category of materialism. All of this regardless if it’s big or small gets added to the heap of garbage that either needs constant maintenance and cost us more money or it gets pitched in the trash and driven to the dump. All in all it becomes a distraction to finding ideal happiness.
The reason for everybody’s life is different. What I mean by this is that each of us have emotional attachments. These attachments are generally materialism but to include the obvious added vices we all are prone to such as daily coffee drinking, over indulging in food, even too much exercise can be the root of your own inner disappointment. When you do something extensively or habitually daily like you can’t live life without it your ego overrules your happiness. You are no longer in control. This is something literally we all suffer from.
Regardless of how good you are at becoming your best self you’re still going to struggle wit bad habits from time to time.  Think of habitual activities like smoking cigarettes, alcohol and recreational drugs and other vices, do you things can be harmful to you with overused. This is obvious but in the overall collective of things studies of proven that literally 50{e481746ea8be6be64f4ea1269eca37b2626d2a7feb7d55cdaf54c7f459a91701} or more of our daily activities are habitual. There’s a good chance you’re gonna have a few negative habits in there.
What I mean by “The reason for everyone’s life is different” is more of an oxymoron itself. Although our lives are similar in the sense that we all suffer from time to time with negative habits and emotional attachments to materialism — we all want different things. That being said each of us are on a slightly different journey to relieving ourselves from these habits and physical wants. 
This past Christmas I overindulged in purchasing online goods not only for other people but myself. I had gone for years without an emotional attachment to materialism. In fact I could walk through the mall with $200 cash that needed to be spent before I left the mall and I would’ve went to the food court and came out with $185 to give to charity. This Christmas was much different. After receiving all my online purchases I became regretfully filled with buyers remorse. I realized yet again that materialism only leads to disappointment. 
I guess I’m back on the waggon to finding myself yet again. Happiness is a state of mind not an actual physical place. Happiness can’t be physically felt by opening a box but it can be filled emotionally. Yes our gadgets often make our lives simpler but often times the technology doesn’t work well enough to suit our expectations. How many times have you had technical problems with a projector or a PA system preparing for your big event? How many times has the cellular application failed when you already written a page of text? It all becomes rather frustrating and often times we would’ve been better without the technology.
Learning from the Buddha in the Dalai Lama; the more you can simplify your life the easier it’s going to get. This seems rather simple but in this rather complex world we often get led astray. Don’t let the inner emotional attachments to materialistic garbage interfere with your happiness and finding who you truly are.
I can’t tell you exactly what traits you need to eliminate specifically because each of our attachments are case specific to our values.
I hope this post inspired you to think about the things you may be emotionally attached to in hopes you can take the next step and make a conscious change towards finding yourself.
