The second path out of the Rat Race
17 Jun, 2020

The popularized path: make enough money or reduce your expenses enough to break free from bondage to work.

Here’s an alternative path out of the Rat Race: break free from the bondage of time. Jump into the river of life. Embrace the intention “I am where I am” and enjoy it. See where the river takes you, crashes you, floats you, embraces you, and celebrate the joy of unknowing around every turn.

We can exit the Rat Race today. Isn’t that cool?

We can also complete the popularized path and find ourselves independently wealthy yet still… missing something.
