Alright, alright…..Your Friday morning ZEN. “Soon you will die, and still you aren’t sincere, undisturbed or free from suspicion that external things can harm you, nor are you gracious to all, knowing that wisdom and acting justly are one and the same”. “This is the mark of perfection of character — to spend each day as if it were your last, without frenzy, laziness or any pretending” – Marcus Aurelius, Meditations We were CONDITIONED by those that were CONDITIONED by those that were CONDITIONED by those……that truly didn’t know any better…….they did their very best and for this we are to be eternally grateful…….because without them…..the entirety of our FOREFATHERS……the good, the bad, the ugly, the ALL……WE the PEOPLE would not even be here, NOW….. And guess what my fair weathered friends? All we EVER HAVE is NOW……..get this simple, simple TRUTH……no one can […]

Winning

Like I said a post every day…..I have to get these ramblings out of my mindscape… I will try to be concise as only I can be.   Like Salt N Pepper said back in the day, “There ain’t no half-stepping”. If you were anything like me, you beat yourself up day in, day out. Not quite good enough, waiting for the rug to be yanked out from underneath the feet whenever the up-days swing back around……UP and DOWN……Good days, Bad days……entirely predicated upon the RETURNS of an unchecked, un-realized DESIRE…….   Our minds can be our own worst enemy, our inner dialogue most-often sabotages our own well-being……our minds can drive us into madness and worse……complacency……..comfortable-certainty.   IN ORDER to become a REAL initiate of LIFE……..you must undergo the greatest transformation your world has ever known…….YOU must trade CONDITIONAL-LOVE for UNCONDITIONAL-LOVE……..there ain’t no half-steppin! […]

I am going to have to start writing every morning to just get all this shit out of me…..writing is among my most favorite things to do, for no good reason.   “You do not realize who I am from what I say to you, but you have become like the Jews, for they (either) love the tree and hate its fruit (or) love the fruit and hate the tree.” Let’s get personal……..the one major advantage that I’ve had over other people is my ability to see patterns that others do not see……..I can do this without effort for a variety of reasons, one of the biggest reasons is I DO NOT SEEK TO SEPARATE this into this or that into that.   Back in the day, I would hunt whitetail deer in the early morning and in the evening would build computer servers […]

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink……   Each day and EVERY day, the Trance overwhelms each and EVERY one of you……and its absolutely apparent that you don’t know it……it doesn’t occur to you…….   I use the word “you” directly and indirectly……..because the you reading this now is in good company.   Good people, plenty good, smart, caring people………wake up and evoke their TRANCE……there is little to NO MIND “engaged”……”realized” throughout this make-believe 24-hour from dusk to dawn “waking period”………most of the movements and actions, including speech are conducted without a hint of active-conscious, mindful regard…….   NEGATIVITY……and POISON……..are so PERVASIVE……and commonplace within our material world……the Matrix……..that it damn near engulfs and envelops the entirety of our collective sphere of existence…..and that troubles me a great deal…….I feel it inside like music resonating, sharply out of tune……..it spreads and snakes and […]

Holy shit…here we …. Now here this…….Most points of view are RIGHT……where does being RIGHT get us? A point of view is just that…..a POINT…..a static, still, select frame of “focused” attention……no-thing more…….IT IS NOT holistic reality…..IT IS NOT……what is actually there…….It is only a point of view…..a frame of reference…….a card to play in the game….. Your point of view maybe more RIGHT than anothers’……that may be true in relation to its compare……but really where does that “GET YOU?”……other than a meal?…..to satisfy that drug-addict ego of yours? What are we doing?………Why cling to a point of view? Why value being RIGHT over being AUTHENTIC……while letting the cards fall where they may? merely trusting LIFE to unfold as its suppose to……despite all the fears, prayers and well-wishes…..all that positive self-speak………none of that jazz gets us anywhere at all……its not even a weak band-aid […]

  Ok, in the mood to explain something fairly complicated in nature……something that most folks never think about or disrupt…….. All ART…..and music…..all craft and wordplay that is thrown into the public marketplace is not cultivated……that is, authored from this seemingly separate, individual self-centered point of view…….like “I created that” and therefore I reserve the right to its “ownership”…..it’s “claim”……we call this “property”……..again any idea of “ownership” and claim is simply silly………in fact the Internet itself was made by those that believed that intellectual property rights were fucking bollocks…..and they are. What ACTUALLY happens……then? And here we go…… ACTUAL is a word that is most-often glossed over……more than likely you the reader haven’t spent considerable time with its “actual” nature”…….thinking about the nature of “actual”…..the definition of “ACTUAL”………. Ok…..and this is where things get difficult……because the concept itself is fundamental to the system itself…..and […]

  “The lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of Understanding”–The Kybalion. Another morning, another opportunity…….today will you remember who you are? Today will you recall what you’re really all about? Today is a day like any other day…….yet this day could bring you closer to the ACTUAL-TRUTH……of what-is…….of reality ITSELF…….Today you can ACTUALIZE what is, rather than warp reality to self-suit. It’s the damnedest thing…….and also quite difficult to even talk about…..because once you make the claim that you are “enlightened” to something that other folks can’t seem to grasp……..you immediately become a threat and a suspect……and rightfully so, it’s not a bad or “wrong” reaction………yet it certainly does hinder propagation of the good word….. A Bodhisattva is a person that receives enlightenment, yet foregoes full-Nirvana for the impossible pursuit of universal enlightenment……the illumination of EVERY PERSON on this planet……not just […]

Bandwagon

OOh me ooh my, do I dare compare….only to shed the light of day…..   In order to go here, we must go there.   I’ll try to impart some very fundamental material knowledge and like I’ve said countless times, you don’t have to believe, my intent is not to convince you, there’s never a need to convince or persuade you “my way”…….it doesn’t MATTER one bit.   For me, I don’t know why I take the time and any post-hoc story I’d draft about why I do would just be self-indulgent silliness……I take the time because I care, I tell myself…..yet still don’t know why.   For starters…..the basics…….its all about BANDWIDTH…..imagine a rather-large elastic band that expands or shrinks whenever you merely think about it……super-tight to expansive………you can imagine this as your eye…….it will expand to let in more light…..to resolve the […]

  Sad and somewhat angry……like a broken record I go….. I came up to Alaska roughly a dozen years ago after selling my internet company. By the end of the Internet startup boom, I was so dis-enfranchised with people and business as usual that I had to get far, far away. The people, the end-users NEVER wanted to learn how computers and the Internet actually worked, they only wanted it to WORK…….I’ve come to deem this the Button-pusher mentality……..never curious or capable……only wanted IT TO WORK…..push a button, TV on……flip a light switch, lights go on…….and that’s that…….We have evolved a tremendously, overwhelming ARMY OF SELF-ASSURED, conditioned, conditional, selective-judging, good-guy badge wearing…..comfortably-certain…….IDEOLOGICAL ZOMBIES…….virtual dead men walking…… I have always felt things very strongly and often see a picture that no one else sees…..it’s been like this my entire life……and to top things off, I […]

Judgment Day – How you approach will dictated what you will find

Quick break and onto more heavy lifting….   JUDGMENT……..   I go on about this quite a bit……pretty sure there are some other folks throughout history that highlighted the exceptional importance of reserving the EXECUTION of JUDGMENT upon your fellow man…….but why?   This case of Judgment was VERY difficult for me, I didn’t comprehend its nature until perhaps 8 years ago or so…….back in my “intellectual”, sole-rational days, I couldn’t warp my RATIONAL mind around how someone could not judge people, after all its what our bio-brains do in order to help our enterprise SURVIVE……it made sense to judge…..to size up……to IDENTIFY THREATS AND OPPORTUNITIES……   I didn’t know any other way around it……we had to judge people, places and things in order to make our way and survive to the next day…….and this is exactly what most folks believe judgment is…..just a […]
