Posted:two things:
your life changes,
your needs/wants change.

If we accept all this change (Dukkha) as the concept of the impermanent universe,
then it is easier to accept that our personalities tend to shift every seven years. Hence our needs, wants (beyond the physiological of course!)
The key IMHO is that the focus should be on what truly brings happiness.
is it more money? is it a date with Ani difranco? is it inner peace?
If you just want to be happy in each moment, it is a great irony to know just how much spiritual development it takes to learn how easy and unconditional simple happiness is.

On the issue of wisdom, it is a given that we cannot help but get older, but we don't necessarily get wiser with time. Experience is a catalyst for growth, but it can only open the door. I feel that the organ between your ears is like any muscle in the body - use it more and it will grow big and huge and show-offable-at-the-beach, conversely callenging it less will lead to atrophy.

soo.. i guess the question remains, what do I want?
What i want most right now is to be madly in love with life!
every moment ubblove

Posted:What do I want from life? smiles, really good friends, and enough money to survive on (I really just don't want to live on the streets or be forced to spend more than a few nights on the couches of friends without at least paying my fair share). I've learned that money isn't everything, and that I would much rather have good friends and people who really care about me than more money.

I don't necessarily think that what we want changes as we get older, but I do think that who we are changes.

Do our views change? Absolutely. As we learn more, we also learn to interpret what we previously believed in or thought. We adapt our thoughts based on our previous experiences as well as our current situations. If we encountered something in the past, and it turned out not so good, well, the next time we see something similar, we alter how we respond - hopefully with a better outcome.

To me, change is a very good thing. My life is much richer now than it was 5 years ago.

I want to have a positive influence on my community, and have a good happy and healthy life at the same time smile

community means a lot of things, happy means a lot of things, and so does healthy.

If you dont know what you want out of life, you might as well go travelling. Thats what most people seem to do, and a few actually find something in their heads while doing it. better than wasting precious time moping about...

To make a difference, to change at least one person's life (better if more!), to repect others and be respected, to be loved, and love in return, to make others happy, to have fun and enjoy my time!!

Hmm... first two, and maybe three I'll have to work on redface Not that I don't have enough time!! I like to think I can check the others off for the time being...

Someone knows who Gene Ha is? My God! Now there's officially enough to start an "I know who Gene Ha is" club. Simian, my respect for you just grows and grows.

Albert Moy sells his original art for not a huge amount, I was there recently debating the pros and cons on either paying $3000 for a single Mignola, or getting 25 Ha's for the same price.

I want to give Simian a huge kiss.

Valura, beautiful earth goddess... Thanks so much for reminding me of a special experience I once had... you can read about it here

What do I want? so many things...

I want to look back on my life when I'm old and wise and reflect on a wonderous existence, full to the brim with beauty, love, adventures and people.

My list changes from time to time, but at the moment every morning while I'm walking to my bus stop, I ask the universe to help me find these things:

A healthy and loving relationship with my partner
A spiritual teacher
A best female friend
A job that is perfect for me and pays me excellently
A beautiful place to live
To be debt free
An ease in the suffering of less fortunate people

and then, my final mantra is the big one:

to reach my full and absolute potential

To ask myself to reach my full and absolute potential is almost a burden sometimes. I feel that I lack direction, that my path is obscured. As conceited as this may sound, I have so much potential and can excel at so many things that my options are too broad and varied to pin-point even a handful.

I can't plan medium to long term. I can only do my best and make the wisest decisions I can at any given moment, with consideration for myself and respect for other people. My short term goals help me maintain momentum and i have moments of clarity and inspiration which give me the hope that although my path isn't obvious or direct, I am treading, skipping and dancing in the right direction.

I want to develop and learn and evolove. I want to gain such self awareness that I can project love-vibrations even in the most trying situations, for myself and for the nourishment of universal connectivity (which can do with all the love vibrations we can share, especially as there is so much negativity and pain in the world).

Ha - I just saw that I made a typo. I spelled evolve as evolove. Think about it: evo-love. That's exactly what I want to do... to evo-love. To evolve with love, in love and for love.

ubblove
