Ok new QOD for those who want to bite.
The thread the other day about parents, relationships, pain, etc got me thinking about our spiritual journey and the concept of "self-actualization". What do you picture yourself doing as a "self-actualized" person, if you believe there is such a person? In other words with all that you may consider a BARRIER aside, be it monetary, familial, where you live, what you do for a living, physical/emotional imbalances or illnesses, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU? What do you picture yourself doing or being as that person?
I will start: (I hope you don't find this cliche)
My goal is to travel to another country, a poor one, where people have little or no access to medical care and minister in whatever way I can be useful to them. Kind of like Doctors Without Borders. I would like to go to remote areas in Africa or the Philippine Islands or somewhere such--- where while physically I would likely be uncomfortable, I would be doing the most good, and even more thrilled to have what I have and live where I do when I finally return.
Does that sound too pie in the sky for you? Sorry, it's just a dream I have. Maybe make a reality when the kids are grown and no longer dependent. I need to make a DIFFERENCE On this planet before I go, you know???
Anyone else? Nothing is too "out there" for me, so shoot! I want to learn more about YOUR dreams!
