That Which Fuels Us: Our Two Motivational Drives

Role Playing Drive: an imbalance in our role play drive keeps us motivated to play it better.

Our Psychsomatic Motivator: Our primary and ultimately our most powerful motivator, it kicks in the strongest when it thinks we are about to die, we go on autopilot to survive. It also fuels our eating, sex, addictions, distractions, music, desires, wants, creativity, many like and dislikes (along with our psyche) and our role play. The lower brain centers control eating, drinking, electrolyte intake, blood pressure, respiration, etc. This keeps us alive, gratified and satiated and it itself must be gratified and even babied.

Eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die.”

Many an Ideology has caused many to feel bad enough (or kill) to deny and repress any need they may feel eminating from thier primary motivator, such as longing for sexual experiences and for particular people, but any ideology itself is merely the ideas of a sage, that has often been robbed of their meanings and potency, by those who cannot or will not discern the true intended message.

Role Playing Needs must be met first before other needs, lest we breakdown physically and would not be able to function.

Ego Playing Drive: an imbalance in our internal psyche keeps us motivated to express it.

Our Psychic Motivator: The primary motivator for accepting our hero’s journey and challenging ourselves to grow beyond our current expression. Once we complete our hero journey(s) the source of our motivation, from our urge to prove ourselves to ourselves and the world, dissipates and we feel a very strong urge to locate our own being. We do this in specific ways depending on our gift/challenge (they are two sides of the same coin). 

Our greatest gift is our greatest challenge, until we know how we are supposed to play the game that we’ve been given to play.

We must harness our energy that is freed up from our Ego Playing drive (when we complete our hero’s journey) in order to rise above our Role Playing Drive, and Drive ourselves!
