"Hope in the face of our human distress/ Helps us to understand the turbulence deep inside/ That takes hold of our lives. Shame and disgrace over mental unrest/ Keeps us from saving those we love. The grace within our hearts and the sorrow in our souls/ Deception of fame, vengeance of war, lives torn apart, losing oneself, spiraling down. Feeling the walls closing in, a journey to find the answers inside our illusive mind." - Dream Theater "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence"

When you work out or do a physical activity should you do it for yourself or do it for someone else?
When I was in grade school the soul reason why I played sports was to make certain people in my life proud of me. Now in high school I feel that I am doing it more for myself. I am wondering if people do it for themselves or others.
I'm in the process of mastering this skill and I'm curious what experiences others have with this fascinating ability. So far I can only lucid dream but I'm meditating everyday hoping to achieve a state of serenity so I can leave my material form. Any tips or stories would be greatly appreciated.
Does the mentality of having more of everything hinder us from accepting life and appreciating what we have, or does it give us more motivation to move forward? (And by more of everything, I mean things that are tangible and things that are not tangible as well. ie: cars, homes, clothes, status, knowledge, love)
