What Do You Want

What Do You Want

What do ordinary people want? Assume that all your living basics exist: food, warmth, housing (shelter), and companionship (love).

Beyond the basics, people can have fun, sex, music, art, laughter, playing, entertainment, exercise, sports, travel.

 If you want more, you need to desire to experience more and act on your desire. 

To begin, you need energy and resources or money. Money is a form of energy that we use to accomplish our goals.  

We earn money by working in a job or by teaching and entertaining people with skills that we have learned. 

We work in construction jobs, in schools, teaching, in the travel business, in restaurants, in sanitation services, in hospitals, in mining, in all kinds of services in cities, companies and private firms.

When we have money, we want to play, have fun, listen to music, create art, exercise, travel, and do sports. Notice that we can do all of those things without money. 

When we want to do more things, we spend our money on art, music, literature, massage, international travel, cooking, construction, adventure, and owning pets. 

We also like our hobbies; art, photography, music, reading, collecting stuff, cooking and sports. Often our hobbies become our jobs to earn money instead of spending money. 

Then we spend our earned income on our emotional needs such as owning pets, going for a massage, eating expensive foods and drinking expensive wine. Travel to an exotic place, participate in adventurous expeditions and buy expensive clothes, jewelry and cars. 

But what do we really want? Using money for expensive things is a way to experience more out of life, or is it? 

What if we try meditation, yoga, dreaming, imagining, learning and being the best version of ourselves? Try to invent something new, achieve your goals and live to your fullest potential.

The saying is, “if you build a better mousetrap, people will beat a path to your door.”

A hungry crowd will always buy food and any better thing that you can offer.

So what am I offering and to whom?

My goal is to explain science to students using my words, and I often suggest that current knowledge needs to be improved.

Why do you want my thing?

Is it because of curiosity, learning, gaining knowledge and confidence to be a teacher, or to show off to friends, to be a know-it-all, or to be a contrarian who criticizes everything? 

The reason we seek knowledge is to understand nature, life and our human situation. As we learn, our wisdom grows, and we become better versions of ourselves. 

Last week I published my eBook, Einstein: Blinded by The Light. I want to thank those who downloaded the free version during my five-day promotion.

I kindly ask you to leave a review on Amazon to help me reach more science students?

We are all in this spaceship Earth together and learning as we fly in the starry sky. 

Thank you so much for spending some time with me xoxo
