    I started looking at everything i did in my day to day life, & asked myself if i actually loved what i was doing with my own bare hands & body....I found out that i didn't love most of the things i did, so i set about looking for all the things i love doing with my own bare hands....I looked for all the hobbies & passions that i could try, & started to remove all the negative things & people out of my life....I quit my job because after 20 years i was starting to hate it, & got rid of all the friends i had that we're draining my energy & finances etc....I also learn't mindful meditation/distraction to rid all negative thoughts for ever, & emotions & feelings control practice until i was in full control of myself....I now have a fascination for life again like i never thought was possible, because i now know that anything "is" possible....So I've done a lot in the last couple of years, & i now am a lot financially poorer than i was before i started this journey.....The big lessons i learn't in those two years is that money is truly completely worthless when it comes to finding real love whether that's love of work or a partner etc, & it's perfectly possible to control all our own thoughts emotions & feelings, & that we create them all ourselves....Money is the biggest red herring on planet earth, followed a close second by religions....As far as work goes i reckon that if a person is doing what they truly love doing regardless of the money/pay, then they already have most of it (not it all)....If then they find hobbies passions interests that they love, they'l then be given their soul mate as a reward for finding & working towards real love in their life..(however not necessarily in that particular order)..So i did all that & now I'm pretty sure my soul mates coming, & as a 41 year old ex-oil refinery "roughie toughie" contractor i know what my old work mates would have said to all that!lol.....Well that's how i see it after 2 years thinking about it all, & a lifetime of investigating etc....We're here to find real love, & to share really love, & to help the needy etc, & to help other people & ourselves learn how to behave properly etc....So when we do all that, not only do we have it all, when we're really born we "get" it all. :-)  ps just a theory :-)

      Wow! You've really thought about this. I can see that you've taken a lot of time working on having it all, and that you're successful in your effort to sort everything out. I love what you said about finding a soul mate.
      Thank you, Lisa
