The Comfort Zone
In a regular job, as the monthly paychecks keep on coming in with relentless regularity, we enter what is known as the “comfort zone” – a state of monotonous mediocrity, mundane mind-numbingness, and mental melt-down.
Comfort Zone not only conceals our true potential, but also of makes us lazy and less than human.
In fact, the lust for money makes people destroy their relationships, destroy each other, destroy societies and destroy Mother Nature.
What comfort zone does to us
In Indian tradition, this notion of comfort zone is known as Maya – a web of apparent pleasantry and evils, which makes us forget our true unlimited potential and compels us to run after the insignificant and meaningful pursuits.
But don’t we all work for money?
Not really, I would say. Saying that we work for money is wrong at so many levels.
- Money is and always has been a means towards an end, not an end in itself. We work for an end whatever that may be, and money is just the medium.
- A capitalist makes money work for her – she doesn’t work for money.
- We work for wealth, not money. Wealth manifests itself in different forms – physical wealth (health and prosperity), mental wealth (knowledge) and spiritual wealth (freedom including physical, spiritual and financial freedom).
Step out of your comfort zone
As we board the money train, and chug our way to the banality of daily job/ house/ car/ foreign vacations/ family commitments, we slowly distance ourselves from our True Self and its infinite potential.
Having said that, it is never too late to take a break, look inwards and reacquaint ourselves without true Nature and its immense potential. The freedom of choice always lies within us.
We can choose who we want to be.
