Hi there!

First time posting on here. Been lurking for a bit, but hoping to get some insight and opinions.
Lately I have a really hard time not doing anything. I feel like I always have to be constantly working on something or being productive. Thinking about it, I feel like it might be related to fear of wasting time and not doing enough. I have a hard time watching TV or doing anything that I feel like doesn't really benefit me in some sort of growth.

Is this good for me? It's pushing me to be productive and be more careful of my time. But, it's also restricting me from just relaxing and enjoying a movie with my wife and kids.

Thanks for reading!

- Lane

I have never claimed, nor do I consider myself, to be a "teacher" on this forum. I am a student of life and continue with lessons learned through the prism of consciousness. It is a daily work-in-progress of self-reflection, reflection of others, feedback and the resulting choices that one makes. Awareness plays an important role in the outcome of the decision to choose the direction of one's "experience packet". Awareness of those actualized past choices is,in part, a link to the questions that you pose.

Do you know why, in the past, you had a hard time doing anything, wasting time and not doing enough?

Only you can answer that question. Is it a good for you to forego spending quality time with family?

Since when is quality time spent relaxing and enjoying a movie with family non-productive? Why are you restricting you from just relaxing and enjoying a movie with your wife and kids? Years ago, I received a lesson in time management; a balance of priorities.

I think you have to ask yourself if being unable to relax is coming from some kind of fear. And if so that is where you have to start.

I have been around people who have to always be doing something and cannot just sit down and relax. It is exhausting to be around them. So, maybe a discussion with your family on how this effects them may be a catalyst in your desire to address this.

Hi lane, I have some of those feelings all of the time, basically mine is the fear of failure to maximize my learning potential in my current character , what helped me is to wake up at 4:30am , down a cup of black coffee, take a mouth full of C60, take a dropper full of CBD, maybe.. somedays.. take a hit off a joint, take 3 advil- because I am about 50 :) and take a 2 hour walk on a empty player field, everything is brand new and ready for the start of a new day, no animals are yet awake.... and no humans are yet awake to putrefy the new.. I can talk to and thank the wind for the breeze and can thank my guides and helpers and notify them of how I think of their training sofar, most of the time I think they are being way to light and I want them to light the GD fire and give me some actual training, then they do and it scrambles my brain :) What you feel is fear and there is nothing wrong with what you feel,, you will eventually get over that fear. From experience,, Enjoy!!!!!! the time with your wife and kids it wont last long!!!!!! it will seem like days. Stressing out about anything doesn't help and you may just be feeling whats on the way in the near feature from the sun to bitch slap the human race mostly out of existence one again.
