Wants, and other questions

What don’t you want?

This is equally, if not more important, than what you want. 

But be careful not to not-want things that are good for you. For example, suffering. 

And what about those you love?

What do they (think they) want?

In what domains and categories are you willing to help others achieve their wants?

Are you responsible for their wants?

Do all people deserve to have their wants fulfilled?
Of course not. Even you, when obtaining certain wants, know there are wants you will regret wanting. Wants that, if fulfilled, do more harm than good, even damage to the soul. 

And what about death?

Who do you want to become?

How do you want to die?


I don’t want to sacrifice clarity. 

In conversations, discussions, my day, my meetings, my actions. Sure, one day I will be old and may not have sound of mind (clarity), but I surely don’t want to precipitate the loss of clarity. And clarity for me is easy to keep: know where you stand on life and death, gain and loss. 

Every Want, must satisfy a Why.

The Why must be adequately questioned and assessed. 

Some wants are arbitrary. Achieve them or not. Makes no difference.
