Ep 42 – Goal Setting for Mystics

Questions –
“I wanted to ask a question regarding something you mentioned in your book about putting restrictions and limitations on ourselves.
Why do we do that?
And what’s the point of it if really all we want is to be free?
Why not just stay free as a child into adulthood and the rest of our lives?”

“I’ve got a love/hate relationship with the word Ambition.
Sometimes, I plainly want to kill it so that I can just be, and at other times I see its value,
it motivates me to live a life worth living,
using all my gifts.
How do you think A-types (highly driven people)
can be more gentle,
more present and dream more,
and balance a rich spiritual life with a busy physical life?
It’s got to be more than just the ‘I’m not enough complex’..
According to Buddhism suffering is basically either clinging or evasion.
I think they say we suffer simply because we either want something or want to get away from something we fear.
Is ambition bound to bring suffering if the definition of ambition is literally ‘a strong desire to succeed”..?
Love to hear your thoughts. Thanks”
