This is part one of a series of posts shedding light on the things that have a grip on society today. These are the things the masses are obsessing over, what we’re manifesting as a result, and the futility of it all. As the old saying goes:
Where our focus goes, the energy flows.
1. Designer Labels
“What fancy labels! Oh my!”
Definitely the talk of those who are impressed by such things.
Ok. Let’s get real here. Most of us aren’t made of money. The only reason we want designer brands is because we think they might magically make us look rich. We’ve been trained to think so. We can’t afford it, but we have to have it. Not to mention, we’re willing to spend an entire paycheck to get it.
We may be spotted wearing a pair of $1000 sneakers or we may walk around clutching an extravagant gold-clad leather handbag for the world to see. We may even end up feeling extra special and super important while out there. Even though we are all equally important, our egos will always try to get special attention and feel superior next to others. How we end up falling for it’s games…
If the illusion of an abundant life is what you’re after, there are tons of designer labels for that. However, what we portray to the outside world will never have any effect on actually changing our internal world, let alone our external circumstances. Only by going through the tough work on the inside will we be able to create the true changes that we are looking for on the outside.
It’s pointless to search for a shortcut to the abundant life. There’s no such thing as a shortcut. We all have to roll up our sleeves and put in the work.
