Transitioning To Paleo

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! I’m a paleo fan, it changed my life for the better, provided more energy and focus, and actually made decisions regarding food much easier… But, Change is hard. Lasting change is even harder, and a huge lifestyle overhaul like adopting a Paleo diet can seem downright impossible. Sticking to a healthy diet in the modern world is never easy, but the first few months of transition can often be the hardest part as you try to get used to a completely new way of looking at food. The long-term benefits of the switch are …

What It Means To Be Cultured

… Or one of my favorite letters ever (I love letters)! Anton Chekhov to his brother, so beautifully honest! MOSCOW, 1886. … You have often complained to me that people “don’t understand you”! Goethe and Newton did not complain of that…. Only Christ complained of it, but He was speaking of His doctrine and not of Himself…. People understand you perfectly well. And if you do not understand yourself, it is not their fault. I assure you as a brother and as a friend I understand you and feel for you with all my heart. I know your good qualities as I know my five fingers; I value and deeply respect them. …

Respect The Ache

Whoever you are with must respect the ache. Simple. That’s friends, lovers, parasites, family, if they are in your inner circle, they must respect the ache! The ache of striving for a higher self. The days and nights needed alone, the hours needed for searching within. They must understand that you do not fit into the mold of normal, that there’ll be days when you’ll be caught wanting, that you do not live for them, you live for your higher self. They must respect the ache of sacrifice, digging down deep, the non stop hustle of turning dreams, purpose, and higher self in reality. … If you enjoyed this article Please Consider SUBSCRIBING …

Do you agree?

“What are works of art for? To educate, to be standards. To produce is of little use unless what we produce is known, is widely known, the wider known the better, for it is by being known that it works, it influences, it does its duty, it does good. We must try, then, to be known, aim at it, take means to it. And this without puffing in the process or pride in the success.” – Gerard Manley Hopkins   Do you agree?

Unplug, Un-Censor and Create

The trick to being truly creative, I’ve always maintained, is to be completely un-selfconscious. To resist the urge to self-censor. Resisting the urge to give into what media and a million billboards, television ads, and trending topics say you should be doing, what you should be eating, and how you should be spending your time. It requires us to unplug, requires not-giving-a-shit what anybody thinks. That’s why children are so good at it. And why people with Volkswagens, and mortgages, Personal Equity Plans and matching Lois Vutton luggage are (often) not. Truly creative people tend not to be motivated by money. The riches we crave are acknowledgment, love and appreciation of the …

Why do what you don’t love?

Why do you do what you don’t love? If a person really knew what they loved, how much room could they actually let other things take up in their lives? How many of their hours or dollars would they let go toward something else? You’d think the things we love are the things we’d be most inclined to do, but this is just not true. Love and attraction are not the same, not at all. Did I spend over $500 on coffee last year out of love? Or out of a thoughtless response to a short-term attraction that I feel at about 7:09 every morning on my way to work? …
