Creation & Consumption | Ep. 37

How the balance of these two forces dictate our life.

It’s easy to get swept away in the narratives of our times. Culture will always be a significant influence on human life. But it will never be the ultimate factor in deciding the outcomes of our lives.

That power lies within our ability to choose for ourselves.

Choice is what defines the direction of our lives. All other factors are out of our control. The choice between creation and consumption is something we must all reflect on. Consumption has overtaken our lives and replaced our creative nature almost entirely.

There still is hope. Unlocking our creative power is the pathway to fulfillment.

Taming our desire for consumption is crucial to find peace in our lives.

We discuss this in today’s episode.

Let’s get into it!

What’s Happening in Today’s Episode

The struggle to create is a challenge for many of us. The desire is strong, but our ability to execute can lag. We haven’t been shown how to create and leverage the power we have to envision and execute.

Our nature is creative. Consumption is a supportive act in our desire and journey of self-expression. Consumption is how we nurture the creative process. But when we replace the creative process with consumption, it can destroy our balance and fulfillment.

This is what’s happening in today’s world. In today’s show, we discuss this happening in our society and how we can balance our creative/consumption movements.

Here is a quick highlight of the main topics discussed:

  • Introduction to creation and consumption

  • Consumption has replaced creation

  • Creation is where satisfaction lives

  • Consumption and entitlement

  • Consumption supports creation

  • cultivating the creative

Developing our creative powers while keeping our consumption in check will create a more balanced and fulfilled society. The world we all live in is a collective reflection of our inner experiences.

All the chaos in the world shows us all the inner chaos we must work through. The world will change as we reclaim our own lives and make changes through compassion and action.

We change the world by changing ourselves. We do this all by setting an example in our lives through action. Living this truth is the only way. We can’t simply tell others; we must become the change.

As always, with every episode of my show, I aim to share things that may resonate to be used in your life today. Studying the concepts of self-mastery will hopefully give you the tools to tap into your highest potential.
