Escape from self-awarness

Thinking about your own death can make you reach for the cookie jar.

“Hockey comes to mind. People think hockey is a sport. It’s not. Hockey is three activities taking place at the same time: ice skating, fooling around with a puck, and beating the shit out of somebody”.

I am dumb

There are a few things that are bugging me right now, not in this very moment but in the few last days, you know, the uneasiness, the feeling of waiting something and not knowing what and why, feeling been dragged from one situation to another without been able to control them, and then I suddenly realized that the best thing to do is to let go.

I ran across a wonderful blog by a wonderful person and his words couldn’t be wiser, so here is how it goes…

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m pretty dumb.

I mean, on paper, I look pretty smart. I didn’t have to pay for college thanks to an academic scholarship, but in actuality, the further I progress through life, the more certain I am of my own innate stupidity.

In fact, my stupidity is one of the only things about which I am certain. Everything else, as far as I’m concerned, is subject to change.

There are a few truths that strike me as fairly concrete. They are as follows:

  • Everything is one: separation is an illusion. You are everything and everything is you. Everything contains its opposite – except love.
  • You create your world. If you change your thoughts, you’ll change your world. Everything is a choice – including believing in barriers and limitations.
  • This moment is perfect. Life unfolded exactly as it needed to unfold. Though you came here by choice, it would have been impossible to choose differently given what you (or the people in your life) knew at the time.
  • Nothing real dies.
  • Within every situation is a lesson. The most painful situations often contain the most important lessons. If you keep creating a situation in your life, it is because you need to learn the lesson that the situation is offering.
  • Your relationship with your self is the most important relationship you can have.
  • Practicing acceptance is one of the secrets to happiness. You must accept yourself, others and this moment. The only person you can change is yourself. You can educate, love, help and support other people – but you can’t change other people. Change is a decision that we must make for ourselves. Struggling against this moment has never changed the way things are. Surrender.
  • Each of us was created to observe the universe in our own unique way and to tap into our purpose. There is something that each of us can do better than anyone else that will help mankind.
  • Everything is infinitely beautiful. We look at beauty through a pair of sunglasses. If we could see how beautiful this world was – and everyone within – we would die.

I am also quite certain that these few truths are subject to change.

If I hold these truths too close, I’ll surely only see evidence that supports them. If I hold these truths too far, I will not live by their wisdom. If I hold these truths just close enough, I’ll be guided by their wisdom but open to the insights illuminated by my life journey.

Thnx Dave.

Sex drive

I’m, sorry, but the fact that the sexual pleasure center of your cerebral cortex has been over-stimulated by spirochetes is a poor basis for a relationship. Learned that one the hard way.
