Money are nothing if you don't have time to use them

I have found people whom say philosophy is boring. Such a nonsense! Not because they don’t like philosophy, but because they use the word "boring". I regret the rhetoric of “being boring” and I am sure these are shallow people, because life can be just interesting. They use this strategy because they think in this way to be cool; like if they are the only whom know what are the most interesting things; not you.

                  
             Seneca says: "While you are waiting to live, your life passes". He was righ!

I know that these fellows didn't understand anything about life. If you love your life you can’t find the way to say that something is boring. Everything is interesting if you want to learn; but I guess this is their lack: "the wish to learn". Of course people can find something more juicy than other things, there are tastes, preferences and so on for everything, but you must remember that those things are also a limit for your knowledge.
Even something that you can consider trivial can be interesting and beautiful, for instance just a Sunset or a Sunrise. People should understand that and stop pretending, everything can be interesting so nothing is boring, because everything can be an experience, beside preferences; above all Philosophy, because it is obvious that if you are just thinking you are already philosophizing. But this concept looks like being too difficult to understand and so many people use the word "boring". Yes I know, it is very funny!
Patrick Pichette needed many years and his wife to undertand his meaning of life 

The proof of what I am saying we simply have just observing what happens in the World. Let's do this example. I have just read that after seven years at the head of Google, the chief financial officer has chosen to leave the company; it looks like a decision not caused by a professional motivation but simply a lifestyle choice.
Pichette says that it all started after a night of climbing, contemplating the sunrise from Kilimanjaro, he and his wife were not just enjoying the moment, but they could observe the plains of the Serengeti to their feet and all of what Africa had to offer them. It was his wife at that point, to make him thinking more deeply asking to continue traveling in Africa and then all around the World. But at first the manager responded pragmatically: "I have too much to do at Google." So his wife continued: So when the time comes? Our time, my time?".
From those simple but big questions came the train of thoughts that pushed the vice president of Google to leave the company, changing completely routine and lifestyle. So after many years of work without any vacation, Pichette is going now to celebrate in this way his 25 years of wedding.
Some people's joke say that the secret of a so long relationship with the wife is also because they have not been together so often cause of his job, so they still don't know too much each other!
Christopher McCandless understood quicly himself

Beside any joke, I am right as always when I say that would be better being less materialistic sometimes, because at the end, sooner or later all things will go in this following order: People understand that money is not everything if you don't have the time to use them. 
I can say that this is very good, but would be better if people could really understand their meaning of life, anyway I guess everyone has their own life's path.
From this point of view I guess would be correct remember Christopher McCandless. I have read about him and I like some of his thoughts and behaves. Because it is true that people live within unhappy circumstances and they don't take the initiative to change their lives because they are conditioned to a situation of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give satisfaction but in reality nothing is worse than a secure future, special if you are a person with an adventurous spirit, but I can say that it could be for everyone, because the joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences and so there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different "Sun". 
I guess with these words above, I can share with all of you, my dear readers, something of very important.

  2. People who kind life and things boring, clearly don't want to see the beauty in the world. Maybe they are too jaded by life and work to realize the wonder of the world all around them. I admit I'm guilty of this behaviour too and sometimes give into despair because of lack of money or the monotony of everyday life.
    Maybe the solution is to give yourself to nature? Hopefully not to the same extreme as McCandless though. XD Giving yourself to nature and getting closer to those you love and who love you, is the key to true happiness, not money.
    Interesting post as ever, Luciano. Thank you!

    1. Hello Amanda! You are right and I agree in everything of what you have just written.
      Anyway just a precisation; when I talk about following your nature I don't mean to give yourself to the nature. I mean that the biggest mistakes that people do is to don't follow their "natural essence", their bodies, their souls and so on. You can do everything but you can't change your "being", this is what I mean. The consequence is that you can live your beautiful life effectively into the nature but also into a big city, doing what is really important for you and others. Doesn't matter what happens later, the important thing is to start from your essence and follow your inner part, after what will happens will be for sure the best for you.
      For this simple reason people are not happy about their choices. I am not talking about people's decision or what practically they are going to do in their lives, I am just talking about that before they must know and accept who they are; in this way, consequently they will be happy and satisfy, almost in every decision they will take...

  3. Yes, I have heard a lot word ‘boring’ with a sense of ‘being boring’. There are three reasons. Firstly, they have never tried that. Secondly, they do not want to go deep to understand something. Thirdly, it just do not correspond with their wishes/thinking/abilities. This three can be combined in one as ‘unwillingness of adoption of diverse and interesting of world/life’. It is absolute true that you say - everything in the world interesting)) ‘ you need to have eyes to see the light’
    You give an interesting example about the wife and husband. It is a good question ‘when the time will come?’ There are two sides in this situation. She is right, her husband needs to live (behold) but not only work or collect money. From the other side, if you love your job it need to be in everyday life. There must be harmony between work and contemplation/soul satisfaction (whatever you call it).
    I also remember one situation, when someone asked man ‘are you resting from your job?’ and he surprisingly answered ‘i love my job. I don’t need to run somewhere to rest from job that I love so much’. And in reality this person has amazing wife kids and travel with them.
    To feel happy we don’t need to live in mountains, just need to look around.
    The problem is not in the responsibility to be head, chief, president, builder, cleaner… the real problem in our attitude in what we are doing, how we are doing, are we ready to do it, maybe we push our self too much, need to understand what is important exactly to you.
    Oh! I need to say)) ‘if to work hard and a lot soon you will be the richest man in the graveyard. if to love and behold soon you will be the happiest man in the graveyard’))) ‘the rich is the person who is rich inside but who has a lot of money is simply collector.’
    To be able to handle money we need some skills. They cannot be the goal of life. We don’t need to collect them like crazy but also cannot scatter everywhere. :*

    1. Hello Jelena, it is really impressive your ability to synthesize my concept here.
      I have never understood how people can be so ignorant. It is obviously wrong considering something boring, especially if you are with another person, because in that way you put yourself in a higher position, like if you can decide also for others and only your judge is right and this is an arrogant and conceited behavior. How is it possible that people can think only about money? They are really so superficial? Sometimes I can't accept and I think people are better than that!
      Instead I am so happy Jelena that at least there are people like you that are so sensitive and deep and agree with me that everything can be interesting. You can inspire me so much!
      It is true when you say that one of the best thing is to try to make your job your style of life, but in a positive way, if all of that give you unhappiness it means that you are on a wrong street. So simple! So you have just to change it! Not like many people do, that they still continue to do the same things without joy. In fact Jelena I totally agree with you because I have always been trying to make what I usually do something of special. Something that can be different every time, everyday, even risking sometimes, This is the best way to satisfy deeply yourself. The rest is just imitation.
      It is also so important when you talk about the fact that society put in the head of the people that there are better and worse jobs. Every job has its own dignity, as long as it is an honest job; but even this simple concept many people can't or don't want understand.
      Definitely is better to be the happiest than the richest, you're really right! As you are right when you say that money are not everything but you still must respect them, especially when they came from a truly happy person.

    The best things what bring us really big Happiness forever are not for sale. When you are sure that He (or She) will never leave you and doesn't need anyone except you. When your parents and children are healthy. When you can kiss and hug them.
