The Daily Walk with Love
— Vishen Lakhiani of Mindvalley Academy asks us, do we really want to spend our lives pursuing the factors (“means goals”) which usually lead to an “end game” of successful enjoyment, or do we want to cut to the chase, so to speak, and simply enjoy one of three, process oriented “ultimate” or “end” sort of goals which all humans normally hope for: experiences, personal growth or contribution to society and your friends as well.) So choose one or more of three, process oriented “ultimate” sorts of goals we all desire and start enjoying life again!

The Problem With Goal Setting
MindValley Academy & Vishen Lakhiani:
Redefine Your “Goals” as
One of Three Enjoyable “Processes”
The Daily Walk with Love, updated January 31, 2018, by Paul Evans, video courtesy of Vishen Lakhiani, MindValley Academy & YouTube. Hopefully our visitors will enjoy a lot more mindblowing content from MindValley Academy in the future. In this short three minute video, Vishen Lakhiani asks us, do we really want to spend our lives pursuing the factors (“means goals”) which usually lead to an “end game” of successful enjoyment, or do we want to cut to the chase, so to speak, and simply enjoy one of three, process oriented “ultimate” or “end” sort of goals which all humans normally hope for: experiences, personal growth or contribution. This is really “hacking the code” of how most people live, isn’t it? This video alone has the potential to revolutionize your lives.

Means Goals vs. End Goals
Means goals versus end goals is also a problem I come up against all the time on dating websites. I am single and looking and so I belong to quite a few of these. But partly it’s a question of the “masks” or “persona’s” society deeply teaches us we must wear at all times. So few people are really just up front genuine, it’s like there’s ten layers of the onion you have to burrow through to get to who the lady really is. And moreover women are scared when you are just upfront and reveal yourself openly to them.
The Ancient Greeks
The ancient Greeks conceived of this idea of the persona or mask, in their drama (plays). They conceived of the idea of one’s persona or mask, (as though a personality you present to the public, hiding the real you), and the idea took off in Western culture overall. Nowadays, people often present a public “face” AND a persona they use online, neither of which is really who they are. My dad, Dr. Jack Evans, R.I.P., once said to me that in this somewhat sick society, it’s “not just the things, but the appearance of things” which you have to look out for. Political correctness at any price seems to be the current craze, everybody has to be politically correct. People think you can’t be open and up front and sincerely, kindly genuine right away, this is a big part of the evil of the whole Matrix of society. It’s a deeply ingrained feature of Western society, but it’s what keeps us apart and what keeps this society of basically good and decent people from truly loving one another. Sometimes getting to know “who a person really is” is like peeling away an onion: some people’s real personalities are buried really deep. I myself try to be open and honest at all times, and I imagine that may be why my life wasn’t more successful. Sad. I’m a classic rock fan from way back, and this discussion reminds me of a song that was big in the late 60’s and 70’s, Five Man Electric Band – Signs with Lyrics.
Persona’s and Dating
(it’s game playing: are
you “for real”?)
I made a decision long ago to just be who I am…. and I am a little mental and quite poor and I don’t hide the fact, you know? But in our society, being upfront, without a mask, and being kind to everyone CANNOT BE DONE, however evil you may conceive this to be, it just is against our whole cultural tradition. It didn’t used to be that way, when I was growing up in the 60s and 70s, people were more free, people said hi on the streets just in passing, crime was much less and people with different beliefs got along. (But we can, and should, push the limits a bit, to go ahead and say “hi” to strangers, if you can, to try to really love your neighbor, or at least be kind when you can, don’t you think? Isn’t that what Jesus would want?) I think more of the women at the dating sites are scared off by my upfront honesty than by my limitations. But it would come out anyway and if a person is going to judge another person (against Jesus’ teachings) ultimately it wouldn’t go well in that particular (dating) match, anyway. Yet women find my kind open honesty scary, as well as my openness and transparency, but since I am almost a public figure with this website, that approach also means I have have nothing really to hide. You have to kind of “tip-toe into the truth” about some matters, I realize. My tattoo says “Honest Love” and that’s what you girls say you want… but when I offer that so far you all run like h*ll in the opposite direction…. I just want to share a little kindness and love, is that anything to be scared of? And DON’T let money be your morality!!
To be honest, I guess “there’s a reason for tradition,” though I do hope that the reason for our persona’s is more than just the continued empowerment of the rich and powerful over the common man!! I am looking for that one in a hundred woman who wants to know who I am and would like a kind, sincere and affectionate guy no matter what his limitations might be. So I am suggesting to you all, be kind, and be upfront and honest, when you can. And ladies, what is wrong with you, you’d never find a nicer guy if you searched for 100 years! I am suggesting that the world would be a better place if we were all just a little more kind, sincere, open and honest.
