Spiritual advice I have for myself?
Look for the laugh. That’s it. Laughter feeds my creativity. I always do far more good, produce far more when I am relaxed and happy than when I am tense, focused on the misery of the world. Good comes from fun. You can work it into the fun.
Example: I run an 800+ member Doctor Who meetup. Frivolous fun once a month, right? This frivolous fun has:
1)helped sustain a local business still finding its feet, thus keeping jobs in the area
2)helps keep an old-style historic theater open
3)has helped people find friends (though there’s still the Minnesota gap to overcome.) Friends, by nature, tend to share resources and help each other out in small ways. As anyone who throws change in a jar knows, small stuff adds up.
4)has a monthly food drive attached to it – those who are in a position to donate, do so. So we also sustain other people in our city.
It’s all couched in frivolous fun. And it works.
