The Secret To Life Is

The Secret To Life Is:

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!Knowing that you can do and say something that no one else can. No one. That’s a fact. Because you are you and no one will ever be you. No one has lived and seen what you have seen. This isn’t about worse or better – it’s about unique perspective and KNOWING that your unique perspective matters. That what you’ve lived through counts. That what you have to say is vital, important, and true. Now, the biggest reason we forget this is because we have been trying to say the right thing, in the right …

Live First, Study Second.

Live First, Study Second.

People today have a strange approach towards real life action. We will do anything to avoid it. We’ll read about how to do something to procrastinate from actually doing it! We will click a like button and a share but don’t do. This is a trap; we are so overloaded with information about how to live that we feel paralyzed from actually getting out there and living. Living should come first, studying second. Read, but if reading and scrolling subtracts from the time you have to actually practice and live – cut it out. This is so simple yet so crucial. Readings guide us to the water. It is our …

People are fantastic at forgetting. Forgetting is not healing.

People Are Fantastic At Forgetting. Forgetting Is Not Healing.

“If things would have gone the way I would have wanted them to have gone I wouldn’t be the person I am today.” People are fantastic at forgetting. Forgetting is not healing. Forgetting is not being okay. Forgetting is forgetting. Those things we have chosen or not chosen to forget will come rearing their not truly forgotten heads. When they do, it’ll be vicious, it’ll suck. The art of story is the gift of choosing to remember. Choosing to actively remember. Choosing to take ownership. Choosing to acknowledge. Choosing not to forget, but rather to remember the things that made us who we are. To thank what came and went. …

The Artist Can Not Interfere With Injustice As A Man.

The Artist Can Not Interfere With Injustice As A Man

As man I have a preference For happiness, as an artist, I still have things to bring to life. All are striving for connection, beauty, and calm, in a world where there is fear, confusion, ugliness, acts of terror, inequality, violence, and hate.  All of this is art. All of this is the path to art. Art is proof, art is the power to heal a broken spirit, to heal so many of us who have lost our way. Move me. Show me beauty. Shock me. Make me think. Bring me work that makes magic out of nothing. Great revolutions are always metaphysical. If you find joy and value in …

It Is Not Easy To Be Alive, It Is Not Hard, But It's Not Easy.

It Is Not Easy To Be Alive, It Is Not Hard, But It’s Certainly Not Easy.

To Live Is Not To Resign Oneself. The only sin is in hoping for another life. – Albert Camus, The Myth Of Sisyphus It is not easy to be alive, it is not hard, but it not certainly not easy. There is no superhuman happiness. I find no hope in the happiness of angels, in the everlasting that past my time; so I must live now, before angels come to get me. Stones, flesh, stars, the truths that ones hand can touch. This is living. Not hoping, but living. The foolish man hopes, the wise man lives. See’s his blessings, see’s what he has not all that he does not have. …

Bernie Sanders Could Replace President Trump With Little-Known Loophole

Bernie Sanders Could Replace President Trump With Little-Known Loophole

Here is exactly what we need to do to save our great society. The information here is what we’ve all been waiting for. By doing this we can make Bernie the president on Inauguration day rather than President-elect Donald Trump. Actually, no we can’t. There is no loophole that allows a random person to assume the office of president. That’s pretty basic common sense but yet you clicked or even shared this article anyway. Now that right there is the real point of this post… Our social media sites have been flooded with misinformation in the past few months. While this has always been a problem, it now appears to …

Tap Into Your Phone for a Bit of Mindfulness Today

In our Western society, it is normal to feel a steady level of stress throughout your day. Our lives are busy and fast paced, but it is important to find some stillness in all the hustle and bustle. To keep both your body and mind healthy, it is necessary to take a deep breath and remove yourself from the situations that cause you stress and anxiety.

We tend to shy away from technology when looking for a reprieve from the commotion of everyday life. However, there are many new apps and devices …

Everything I Want Means I Gotta Stop Caring & Start Living

Everything I Want Means I Gotta Stop Caring & Start Living

I care way to much about what people think. I don’t like this! I don’t like that. This means I’m gonna have to experience things, alone, fully… and not worry about what it’ll look like on my feed. Wonder, will people like it? What people will like it? Will it get me followers? Will it go viral? I’m gonna have to be in it, me, alone, and just experience it, really experience it without the filter of a life and virtual world outside of this moment. Everything I want means I gotta stop caring & start living. “Do I like it?” Will be the only question worth experiencing. Free yourself …

The Fear Of Death (It's Not All Guaranteed)

The Fear Of Death (It’s Not All Guaranteed)

I have dreams of enacting this harsh and cruel therapy. Where someone pays me to make someone think their plane is crashing. To put the fear of death in them. To make them wake up and see that it’s not all guaranteed that being grumpy on this plane is pointless right now. To appreciate what was and what is. And when it’s all coming to a head and the waking up is beginning, right then right the plane rights itself, the chaos comes to a stable place and he/she, our secret client wakes up. Whether everyone else is a dummy or a plant and how to let airlines let me …
