I was talking with a buddy last night about this idea of control.
Personally I think it's something of an illusion. Not much different than using photo shop.
It might make things look one way from the outside perspective. But it takes time, energy, and a certain kind of motivation to project those things. And it doesn't make it reality.
Even if those projections seem preferable. Or more interesting. Or just more colorful and fun. Reality doesn't change just because we want it to be a certain way.
And I've said this before, but maybe all of the energy that we are using, that has no impact on our reality, is a misuse of resources.
I don't want to say that it is a waste of resources. But I'm not so sure if it's always the best use of the resources we have.
I want to make an impact. I want to increase the amount of significance that I (and the people I choose to surround myself with) have on the world around us.
