I understand you. You are home.

The world isn’t perfect. You feel like you don’t fit in anywhere. You feel misunderstood.

I know how it feels to have your creativity repressed. I know how it feels to have your potential drained.

I know what it feels like to die, to have no hope. I know what it feels like to have your voice fall on deaf ears.

I know what it feels like to have unshakeable optimism. I know what it feels like to try to live your highest standards on a planet that is dedicated to mediocrity. I know what it feels like to be a stranger in your own body.

I know what it feels like to have more questions than answers. I know what it feels like to be utterly lost. I know what it feels like to be broken, repeatedly. I know what it feels like to be overwhelmed with darkness.

I know what you’re feeling. I know where you are. Just know that I love you.

That might be all you need to hear. You are accepted just as you. You are not alone. Your pursuits are not stupid. You are not broken.

The world needs you more than it knows.

This is the medicine you need. The medicine for healing. The path of exploration. The guiding light in the dark. This will fill you up. This won’t guide you, but it will give you enough so you can guide yourself.

To illuminate the world you must first illuminate yourself.

Consumption filters

Being deliberate about what you consume means shutting out a lot of incoming elements.

Curating your Facebook feed isn’t enough to become mindful about what you’re letting into your life. Your TV is evil. Drama is an addiction.

Only the truth will set you free.

The secret is you must create and curate this truth. Living from a place of true freedom of thought. However, this can only come when we begin to shape our filters. Continue reading

The path of healing

What does self-healing even mean?

We have a view of healing that dips directly into our mechanical worldview. Healing equates to modern medicine, which lead to tests, machine involvement and if we’re lucking a pill we can pop every night before bed.

This view distances us from who we really are. It creates a false sense of disconnection. The mindset of separation that keeps us wrapped tight inside our own cocoons.

Anyone or anything on the outside is direct perceived threat to me. This way of living works, if you like living in constant fear and anxiety.

For those of us that don’t there is another way. Continue reading

Choosing freedom

Freedom is all about choice.

In school we’re cultured into fear. I used to be afraid to leave the classroom to go to the bathroom. I was also painfully shy (so your feelings of fear might be a little different).

As I got older, I realized most systems I was living in. College. Shitty job. Internship. Were filled with a bunch of bullshitters. Instead of doing anything real the focus was on blending, on talking out of your ass. On doing just enough to go unnoticed.

On maintaining a status quo. Personal freedom is bad for business. Continue reading

The risk of saying something

How many of us are actually saying something that matters? I catch myself sometimes too. Instead of speaking my truth, I instead write the watered down version. My internal critic that’s afraid of judgement and being thrust out into the worldwide abyss strangles my voice.

I’ve had more failed blogs and businesses than I can count on one hand. At the core of these failures was a lack of integrity. Operating from a place of non-alignment. Sure, you can do this for a while. We all can. In fact, we’re cultured to believe this is life from the first moment we open our eyes. I understand the struggle and I understand the fear.

There comes a moment when you have to stand for something, no matter the consequences. Continue reading

Can words be psychoactive?

Psychoactive compounds work on their own to alter the reality of the user.

Once the compound has been ingested it’s time to set sail.

Literature can have this same effect.

The moment you open the book you’ve been brought into a new world. From this moment you know you’re never going to be the same. Continue reading
