Positioning and aliveness

If you grew up in India you would be a product of that environment. This is probably the first and only time you can blame, or credit, your environment because you have absolutely no say in the matter. Beyond this point your environment becomes increasingly decided. At school you decide to hang out with the stoners or the nerds and you will likely adopt that culture/head space. It is feeble to blame the culture, environment, location or anything else. When in fact you arrived here solely based on your decisions.

Drop your persistent conflicts and the idea that you can’t change them. Then ditch the reasons and meaning to everything else you think is important. Peel the onion back to the core. The possibility of doing, having or becoming anything comes purely from nothing.
