Namkha’s Take on Life pt. 2
After hearing multiple stories of people’s experiences of their life, young and old, I’ve realized there are certain stages to someone’s journey through their life. I believe there are 3 stages to a person’s life.
The first stage is PHILOSOPHY
At this stage in your life all experience is ahead of you, everything is potential. So you choose a philosophy to guide you, to follow down a particular path. During this stage you’re still making decisions and learning from any mistakes that you make. At this point in time your philosophy may change many times until you find the right one that is suitable to your lifestyle.
The second stage is MATHEMATICS
You’ve made choices that cannot be unmade. Potential becomes experience and there are fewer paths that you can take on your journey. Precision and calculation become more important, where you re-evaluate the mistakes you’ve made and try to calculate the right choice in the future. This is where most of your experience throughout life comes into play. and everything you do cannot be reverted.
The third stage is SCIENCE
This is the end game, all your decisions come to a final conclusion to execute your goals. Your goals have been made and you’ve been around the block that you know exactly what you want, you just have to carry it out and work to your ultimate goal in life. Although, very few people get to this stage, where they can succeed at reaching their ultimate goal in life and become blissfully happy with their achievements.
On a tangent, my brother told me that you are a combination of the five people you spend the most time with. I believe this to be true because your friends indirectly reflect your goals. Whether you want to rise up in the stages of life or be sucked into a repetitive lifestyle is completely up to you. Your goals are influenced by the people you surround yourself with.
