The Running Theme

There’s an inexplicable feeling that continues to arise in my life. A running theme. And I’m not quite sure how to explain it. Nor do I think explaining it to myself or another would do any good. Trying to relay a message often distorts it. The signal becomes lost in translation. And if this distortion […]

Sharp

Why waste a moment when you cannot know where it will lead? This statement is made in response to two judgements: one that considers not “using” the moment as a waste — and one that says this moment will not lead where I want to go. Both reek of impurity. This type of thinking can […]

Splitting Atoms

The thing is done for something. The truth lies in what this something really is, versus what you believe it to be. The two must be contrasted. If you tell me it’s to get somewhere, I will tell you it’s to satisfy the need to get somewhere. One may exit the mind in one second […]

A Truly Effective Mode of Being

The past few days have been ripe for exploration. I will tell you what I have learned. There is a fine line between need and desire. But without desire, nothing happens. If the desire is pure, that’s one thing. But even a desire born of purity, is all too often mutated into full-blown need by […]

Unmistakable

It’s a conversation with myself. That’s what all this is. And when it stops being that, when it becomes something else, the knowing fades. When you have too many ideals, how can you expect to be satisfied with the non-ideal? And is life ever ideal? You can probably count the number of ideal moments you […]

Image Optics

Perhaps the most valuable side effect of pursuing self-mastery is that you quite literally begin to see that which others do not. Having been where another is, and having transcended it by way of understanding, one is able to understand the other with brilliance. You begin to see where others falter, because you faltered in […]

Mr. Rubik’s

An incessant buzzing. Trite nonsense, spinning, and weaving, Identified as foe rather than friend, in its 4am callousness. Two hours of sleep yesterday, four hours of sleep only now. To awaken to such irrelevance: it almost seemed malicious. I was beginning to sense a construction take place. In fact I quite literally saw it. Revving […]

The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

The world, and its people, are ignorant. Your family and friends, in truth, only care about themselves. They will hide from this truth by employing a multitude of excuses and justifications, in attempts to appear virtuous or “good”. But at the end of the day, virtually everything done is born of ego. The desires for […]

The Game You’ve Been Duped Into Playing

Human beings are silly creatures. All too often we assign value to the valueless, and to a surprising degree, the detrimental. Like children, we see another’s desire for something, and immediately react in a knee-jerk like fashion, “deciding” we want it for ourselves. Whether this is wealth that cannot be taken to the grave. Social […]
