What you subscribe to takes away your time

What you subscribe to takes away your time. And its not just Netflix or Mubi or instagram or a newsletter. Its also the bigger ideas in life. Religion, philosophies, principles, systems, they all make you do things that you wouldn’t have if you were not aligned to them. And doing things takes time, the only absolute finite resource you have. Every other thing melts down in importance in front of the resource of time.

Yes, you’re gonna live through it one way or another, but that shouldn’t be a matter of triviality. You can accumulate peace, wisdom, happiness, prosperity through the time you have, for yourself as well as for others, or, conversely, you can accumulate hurt, pain, frustrations and regrets, through the same time resource depending on how you use it.

So when you pull your socks for a run subscribing to a fitness regime, pull up your fine shirt for the evening mass, join a company where you’re gonna work day in - day out, ask yourself, what are you going to accumulate out of it in your mind and body?
