Goals, Slavers and Worshippers

A goal in life is merely a social product, meaning: a social way of thinking… it kills all possibilities to achieve the same goal spontaneously.

I mean: if a goal dominates our whole process of thinking, then our mind will become absolutely dependent of that goal carrying all the weight the protraction toward that goal implies… weight in terms of stress, anxiety, pressure, expectations, ambitions, fear to fail and even fear of being not responsible enough to preserve the success conquered (in case of success).

Therefore, even logically, it’s clear how the way of thinking through goals… (and the majority of them are merely social goals installed into our psyche) is simply an act of feeding absurdity.

Why is this so absurd?

The answer is to be found within another question and the question is: how can we possibly perceive as natural the tremendous amount of energy, the pressure, the stress, the anxiety, the fear we have to nourish and tolerate in order to achieve the goal we desire to achieve?

Is this syncopated way really the only way?

Do we really have to struggle so badly to achieve and to conquer the point of an ambition whatsoever… by competing perhaps, or by studying over the human possibilities of cerebral tolerance or other absurdities? Or even by fighting (most of the time)?

And, after all, radically, to achieve what exactly?
A lot of money?
A shining career?
A strong social position and power?
A desk where to proudly put our new $500 shoes?
A Bugatti in the garage?
Or the transmutation of ourselves into an international well know writer?
Or whatever you will…

There is nothing wrong in having a goal… I have the goal to produce my own coffee… You have the goal to face one year trip by boat around this spinning blue globe… He has the goal to establish a photographic exhibition with his wonderful pictures… She has the goal to achieve a condition in life of profound peace…

We have as goal the end of fear!

But never lose that quality of profound self-inquiry aimed to recognize… right the way… (right at the very beginning of the process of thinking that will shape the goal)… if that desire springs out from our natural, unconditioned intuition and affinity… or if rather it comes from social conditioning’s, collective silliness or absurdities of the modern tribalism…

Is there a possibility to achieve goals freely, spontaneously, with no identification in the goal, nor pressure, anxiety stress of any kind, neither competition and fight, nor idiotic individualism?

Is there a possibility to move psychologically and practically toward the goal we want, (obviously after having realized if that goal is really what we want), without an attachment toward that goal?

And, look at that, how petty and deceiving it becomes: when a goal, a big goal, becomes the purpose of our life, the mission we must achieve, whether becoming a super powerful person, a man filled by notoriety, a celebrities, an enlightened person or other human miseries… then please… look at the very psychological mechanics of what happens within our syncopated/conditioned mind: through a huge existential goal, what we think is the purpose of our life, our ‘mission’ or whatever you like to call it.. our mind turns into a religious mind: the goal, or better to say the illusory ideal of the goal and its consequential actions, becomes what’s important the most for us…

A single idea turns us into total worshippers of the goal… nothing else matters, just the goal…

Most of us became and are merely slaves, worshippers of their own goals… no longer thinkers…

We want to reach the mountain and what we are focused in is just the picture of that mountain: all of what is around, the plants, the hidden paths, the trees, the living beings and beauty we come across along the path are almost insignificant… or merely useful (and “abuseful”) to be used as fuel so to accomplish the dominant purpose of the goal…

In this way we may achieve the existential goal… or maybe not: if we fail we spend the rest of our life blaming ourselves…

If we succeed we establish the final stone for our existential monument of ourselves which is, in truth, our grave: before, along the mission, we were and we have been the mission… not ourselves as free thinkers… after the mission, when the existential goal is finally achieved, we become the goal… the thinker is finally dead!

Is there a possibility to achieve the goals we like to achieve without any sort of identification in them… nor fear to fail, neither desire to success?

Nature has no goals: indeed it fails most of the time… and by doing so it succeeds in evolution… And we are nothing but nature… part of nature, with any particular special difference… we aren’t ‘divine’, nor ‘chosen’, nor ‘meant to be this and that’, neither ‘sacred’ or other human absurdities…

Can the mind floats along the fields of the goals… toward evolution and balanced progress… without any form of stupidity, compulsive desires, schyzophrenic/identitarian ambitions and the pettiness typical of the conditioned human psyche?

The answer is yes:

When the mind is fully attentive, senza condizionamenti, (and that’s the ultimate goal before any other goal)… then the mind knows exactly what a goal toward its pleasure, evolution and productive self and collective progress is…

It goes together with the river of nature with no more fights, violence, competition and ambitions…

A fully attentive mind represents psycho social freedom (inwardly and outwardly).

A mind constantly distracted by its identitarian-existential goal represents promotion of self and social violence (as like human history suggests)… regardless of the eventual social benefit its success can give to the world…
