Creative Arts – In Peril Or Ready To Bloom, You Are Here!

We are living in unprecedented times. Its been since 1945 that America faced such gloom. That is a whole lifetime for some people. Looking around me, from what I read, what I see, and what I hear; these days are really tough. The creative arts is an important part of life, not just in this country; but in life in general.

Due to the pandemic many creative artists are in a real bind these days. Seems there isn’t any relief to be had from the way things are. And people have to eat sometimes.

I know my own struggles, it seems people have a high amount of apathy these days. As though, they couldn’t care about anyone but themselves; and it has been taken to an extreme by many. How can we ever get back to being a whole society, and being whole as beings again?

It seems the individual is the only fabric of our modern world. Because one person doesn’t have much force to drive in the face of public opinion these days. There are other causes, and other problems that have more attention. Seems everyone wants to be in the spotlight for their five seconds of glory.

The creative arts is an important part of life. How many people really appreciate the creative arts in today’s modern world? It seems the whole field is being neglected, and treated with indifference. Seems to be a problem with society, because they treat most people that way in today’s modern world.

There is some hope, that in the spring when this winter thaws, there will be new growth in the creative arts; that maybe this winter of life; will pass, and new work will rise up even better than before.

One can hope. Still, neglect, indifference, and apathy are running rampant these days. Someone is going to have to make us feel something again; and bring the human race back to life. Too many today are living like zombies. They don’t care, they couldn’t be bothered, and they are not interested in anything. Seems like a world of house cats to me.

Those same cats are going to get hungry someday. When the world is as dull and lifeless as the face of the moon, somehow I doubt they will bask in the glow and say they have a perfect world. At this point, they can go back to living in mud huts for all I care. I’m not looking for validation from humans in this world. Yet, there are problems that need solved and on the bounce too.

My art, my writing, my feelings, they are are dis-regarded as worthless. It seems there is nothing I could do or say that would make them give any sign of caring. Pity; because if they listened, they might learn something important. I have experience in some things that are uncommon, and not the usual boujee junk most people are trying to promote. Somehow, I seriously doubt anyone is going to listen to me. It feels like screaming into the ears of a deaf cat.

Someday, they won’t be able to object. There will be a time, they are simply out of time; with nothing they can do about it. You would think, they would care before it reaches that point, but alas, they seem far too dumb to think it through.

I was looking to doing more work, in the near future; maybe something much better than the work previously produced. Seems what I need these days is a muse. They are in short supply these days; tough times.

Times are going to continue to get worse, if nothing changes, then it will very likely get only worse for everyone. At some point, you have to wonder if they will feel the sacrifice would be worth what it cost? Everyone has a pain point, and when the pain is great; they are more willing to pay for having relief. If they were smart, they would avoid the pain altogether, and take the best action ahead of time. Seems, they aren’t going to do what is good.

The world is a mess, and maybe we need a lot of people to start to wake up; life is short, and if you don’t have some long term goals that are looking to change the world in two centuries or longer, then you are wasting everyone’s time, energy, and money. We need some real vision about the future that will make life really better.

Most people don’t talk about the future, most are stuck on the problems of today; and few ever think the problems of today will effect the problems of tomorrow. They are however all connected. So some things simply have to start to change for the better.

Don’t neglect the creative arts in life. Some of these people seem to have enough apathy to silence whole groups of people with just a cross look. Yet, someone is going to have to make life better. People that are doing things, they are the ones to watch; because they change things, sometimes for the better.

And what we need at this point, is better. You are here, at the cross road in life, where change can still be made for the better, you do however have to choose to make life better, because the world in a few hundred years won’t be as pretty if you fail to choose right.

You are here, do something good today, for a better future.

What Is Advantageous?

Not All Things Are Advantageous

What is advantageous in this world? After giving it some level of thought, there are some points I can make about this subject.

  1. The most advantageous options are ones that don’t have a disadvantage.

Seems everyone has some dis-advantage in life, but how we deal with them determine how much of a dis-advantage it really is. What may stop one person in their tracks is nothing more than a mild inconvenience to others. So the conditioning that people have and how their minds work may determine how we handle problems.

There are things that have positive effects, with no down side. Drinking a cup of coffee when you wake up has the advantage of helping you wake up. However, drinking ten cups of coffee before trying to go to sleep has a real downside.

So you have to be smart enough to understand cause and effect, and knowing when, what, where, and how.

I was standing the shower thinking about this, and some song by Janes Addiction came to mind. “What is advantageous?” Some things look good, some things feel good, some things are painful. What advantage is there in life? Seems we should be able to make use of most things in life. Turns water to coldest possible setting, that will wake you up.

Laying on the sofa giving it further thought, what really is advantageous in life? It seems some things are good for us, some things aren’t so good for us. Having a society that is sober and drug free, has some advantage. If everyone was drunk or drugged out of their minds, society wouldn’t function very well.

At the same time, just as people think smoking cigarettes is a major disadvantage, as they feel getting sick and dying isn’t an advantage; it seems at some point in the lives of everyone living; they all eventually get sick and die.

So what is advantageous? That which never puts you at a dis-advantage. Then, how does anyone make it through life? Seems everyone at some point is faced with something that challenges them to grow, to learn, and to adapt.

Anything that puts you at a long term dis-advantage would be likely a very bad thing. Some people aren’t given choices in the matter, which is because life can be very unfair. So it is advantageous to do things that improve your life.

I think something that is advantageous would be something that would have good results if anyone were to do so well. There are some things that some people do better than others, so knowing your abilities helps a lot. Not everyone is going to benefit from jumping out of an airplane at twenty thousand feet. Some may find it is very beneficial; some people may find it a career limiting maneuver. To each their own, do everything within your abilities.

Doing what is best, requires that a person have the ability to reason and use logic to understand the full effects of their actions; long before they set out to make something happen.

What advantage is there in being poor? Seems in the long run, its usually a dis-advantage. Yet, some people have come from poverty to rise in life, and do very well for themselves. They learned that they must work for what they want, and have standards.

So poverty in itself isn’t really anything more than a setback. While, being totally stupid; is a major disadvantage. It’s pretty tough to get smarter when you’re as dumb as a rock.

There might be an upside to it; but only as long as you believe that ignorance is bliss.

Do what is advantageous for everyone in the long run, and society will benefit for a long time. You have to have understanding about cause and effect; and the long term goals that need to be accomplished. Anything that has long term dis-advantages would be something to avoid at all costs.

Be wise, feed your head; just make sure it’s not poison.

Sometimes in life, it seems you are screwed no matter what course of action you take, go left; you are screwed. Go right; you are screwed. You are not able to go back; the only thing you can do is go strait. Be brave; have courage. Live so well, no one will ever say you didn’t try.

At some point; everyone will find some problem in life, how you deal with it; that is what matters. Some people train their whole lives for one moment. Do what you can to make life better for everyone.

Thoughts About Value, Meaning, and Being Of Worth To Others

Finding Real Reasons To Live

What is value today in the minds of most people? It seems they respect money, power, and the illusions of grander. What could they find about someone like me to value? It certainly wouldn’t be my status, it wouldn’t be the money I have in the bank.

There are not many friends in my life, even fewer that know me. Seems I have existed as a ghost in this world for some twenty years, living like some misfit that doesn’t know better. Yet, you would be hard pressed to understand my point of view, such things only happen after you have fallen from grace; and learned some tough lessons the difficult way.

Seems there was nothing to protect me from my fall. In some ways, I had it all some twenty years ago; yet nothing I had was enough to protect me from the fall I have taken. So what does one do when there seems to be nothing of this world that can prevent what you have from being taken from you? Seems awful unfair if you ask me.

If you have known tough times, you might find some value in what I have had to say in my writing. I’m not sure how many would understand my point of view, seems the world today; most people don’t have many first world problems to really deal with.

Of what I have had to endure; they have denied me my honor, my dignity, and taken my self respect. Seems the basic functions of my life have been under attack for more than twenty years. Sometimes, I have reason to believe they did it all to hurt me. That may be true; that they are really so ruthless that they only wanted to hurt me.

Living my life will open your eyes, it would be enough to make you loose faith in humanity in whole. Seems the way this has been, there is nothing they could ever do to make it up to me. I have to wonder after having been treated like I have been, if they human race has any value? Maybe some value; but for people that claim to know their worth and treat me like I have none, isn’t very respectful.

If you know your value; and you treat other people as though they have none, maybe your pride is in the way of being a respectable being. Really what kind of value could you have to be able to treat others as though they have none? Seems people have lost their kindness in ways that leave the human race wanting of reason.

The world is a mess, and these days the problems aren’t getting better. Many today have become cruel, or living in total despair; of what kind of life have we created in this world that these problems are permitted to continue like this?

Life has to get a lot better. You may agree with me about that. If you are not in agreement with that idea, how can you live with yourself in this world and still be a respectable person? Are you blind to the problem? Wake up!

Wake Up!

Really value only comes from the whole having value, when there are those that are treated like they don’t really matter; that takes away from the value of the whole. For the whole to be the most valuable, everyone has to be treated like they matter, respected, and have their dignity intact.

So many today have allowed their lives to be as Charles Bukowski said, “Clubbed into dank submission.” Most people are not really more than warm sacks of shit. Pity, because life is meant to be lived, and too many today want to take even that away from us. I’m not sure what kind of life they want to live, seems to me; it’s not more than a living death.

Do what makes you feel alive. Value is more than meets the eye, somehow we have to get through to them, reach their hearts and minds; to make them believe that not everyone is going to tolerate being treated like a warm sack of shit.

If you know your value, and you treat anyone as though they have less value than you have; what does that say about you? Humans should remember, that they are all living clay, and not be superior to those that are their own kind, even more so they should respect those who are above them.

It Is Time To Wake UP

I want to live

Seems everyone is in a stupor, these days are tough. No one is paying attention to me. Either, they don’t care; or they couldn’t be bothered. My stories aren’t ranking very well, because no one is reading or searching for my work. I’ve noticed. The algorithms have noticed. For my work to reach an audience, the algorithms have to see some interest in my work.

Right now, interest is at zero. So wake up. Until people start to care a little bit, nothing will get better. Seems the human race has some problems. Nothing that couldn’t be solved. If people would pay attention and wake up.

Somehow, I doubt anyone is going to change. People are so selfish these days, they only care about themselves. Pity. Seems I’m not important enough for anyone to care about me at all. Its obvious. I wish this would change a bit. I needed for my work to reach new levels. I’ve put the effort into making great work; somehow no one cares.

I want my life to be amazing. I really do, it is my desire to have a better life. There is nothing wrong with wanting life to be better. Right now, my teeth are rotting in my skull. I wanted that fixed. Seems no one could give a damn.

So what is it going to take for people to start to care? Seems like, I would have to pay people to listen. That isn’t how life should be. I’m tired of the fact, I’m being treated like I don’t matter at all. It is obvious, they couldn’t care.

If no one is going to pay attention, then why bother? Seems there is nothing that I could say, or do that will make people listen to me. This is not the kind of treatment I want. They should at least be paying attention. Most people are content with just existing. Well, if that is all you want out of life, then you can just exist to read my work. You won’t even know the difference. Nothing will be different.

Nothing has really changed in a long time. People are content with just existing; like they are all in stupor and asleep. Are you sure that is the kind of life you want? You should be more alive than that. Really, I think a chimpanzee has a better life than you people. You’re not much smarter than chimpanzees. Living like you are, you don’t really seem to be alive. You are just existing, like warm sacks of shit.

That isn’t the lifestyle I want to be living. That isn’t any kind of life for me to live. I’m tired of the fact my status in life is so low, that no one will give a damn about me at all. It seems humans are cruel about the way they treat me. Maybe even ruthless.

Pity; thought life was going to get better. Feeling like, damn it. Nothing I can do to make this situation better. I’ve tried, no one will listen long enough to reach their hearts and minds.

Really, what I wanted to do is reach their hearts and minds. Seems they are too hard headed to think, and their hearts are stone cold cruel. Someone should have cared by now, I have worked my butt off. Seems talent, skill, and effort are not respected at all. So what in the world do they value? Maybe they just want to exist like warm sacks of shit? Maybe.

I want to live my life, I want life to be amazing. I am tired of just existing like this. It’s not the kind of lifestyle I want to be living. When I thought about what I have in my life, it seems this life is a damn cage. Is that what the human race wants to be born into; A CAGE? Maybe they are that dumb.

It is time to wake up. Because if this goes like it is, it won’t be much longer before they all turn their minds over to computers to think for them, to feel for them, and to pray for them. Sick!

It is time to wake up. Stop your slumber, start to feel again. You have to awaken your spirit, you have to start to live again. The human race is dangerously close to loosing their ability to reason. No one is thinking, no one will listen, and the poor fools are going to pay for it.

Conclusion

People are in a slumber, or some kind of stupor. They are not really being kind, or loving. The neglect, indifference, and apathy are a sick society. If this doesn’t change, the world is going to be thrown into chaos. Life has to get better, a lot better. Maybe most people are happy? Maybe they don’t know better? There is no excuse!!

Visions Of The Future – The Problems With Progress Today

Our ability to progress is only limited by peoples ability to adapt.

-ctopher

Visions Of The Future

Some cultures plan 10 years in advance. It seems some cultures are planning hundreds of years in advance. What we need is someone with some real vision to to work with.

What could be accomplished

If you think about what could be accomplished, you might start to wake up. Most people are content with keeping the status quo intact. Why is it, that real change always feels like revolution? It must have something to do with the fact, that change is difficult for most people.

What is possible is only limited by people’s ability to adapt to change. Most people are so set in their ways, that keeping the status quo is the only thing keeping the peace. Change must be very difficult for them.

It seems just getting people to think about the possibilities is difficult to do. They don’t want to think, because they have not grown accustomed to thinking. They let someone else do all the heavy lifting, then who ever packages the ideas in the best box seems to be who wins.

While that is good for most people, my thoughts are; they should give my ideas some consideration. Some of these ideas will only come from me, unless someone tries to steal them. Hmm.

The Future

We have to ask ourselves, “What kind of world do we want to live in?” What kind of life do most people really want? Because it seems some people are content with any old plain existence they could be allowed to have, they don’t give much consideration to actually designing it themselves.

My goal is to help design the future. I sense that if we leave it to some of the people in charge, it will look like something vogons have made. That simply won’t do. You know about the vogons right? They have poor design skills.

Somehow the plans for the future have to be put on display in a public place for all to see. We should at least know what plans for the future there are. It doesn’t do much good to keep them in the basement, without any light to see them.

The future could be better. From a perspective of architecture, much can be improved upon. We need better transportation, housing, shopping, and entertainment avenues. The lack of culture in todays modern world leaves many with this feeling that life is empty and devoid of meaning.

Which isn’t really true, there is much meaning in life. There is much to be done. They allow their lack of ability to think to hold them back from understanding more is possible. The real problem is the thinking must be fixed before they can tackle other problems. The other problem is, they don’t have anyone to teach them how to think to be able to identify the problem. So they are basically blind to seeing the real facts.

The future will have to be designed. We have to have something that will really work for people that find change difficult, while still providing functionality for everyone.

Selfishness

People only really care about themselves. The functionality of today’s modern world has made it impossible for them to care about anyone else. If you want to see life get a lot better, then we have to open the heart in fundamental ways that allows the light in.

Too many today have allowed basic dignity to escape their grasp. Some have tried to take their dignity away, some have allowed theirs to be taken. A high minded civilization does NOT oppress its people. A high minded civilization is built to allow people to grow. Seems we have outgrown the old world, and everyone is trying to find new footing in an unstable world.

New systems have to be designed. With functionality that really works for a long time. What we have today is not 1/10 of what is possible for the world.

However, after giving it some thought; really the future can not be oppressive. There can not be any real progress until this problem is fixed. Until people start thinking what is best in the long run for everyone; the future will continue to look bleak.

Real Progress

Real progress for what the future can look like can only be made when people stop being oppressive and start changing for the better. Yet, change is so difficult; the status quo is the only thing to keep the peace.

Maybe the human race doesn’t want a better world? Doesn’t seem like it. They are content with any old existence out of a box they can get their hands on. Doesn’t feel very promising.

Do you see the problems? If you see the problem, start working to make the change needed to make life better for everyone.

Visions For The Future – Essay

Really, people have to start thinking about the world we want to live in. Many are overcome with despair; however that isn’t going to solve the problem. This essay is some of my visions for the future. Please take the time to read it.

Space

Exploration of outer space may be beneficial, with the understanding those on this earth may only take material out of our own solar system for use on earth. You must not steal material from other worlds / solar systems outside our solar system.

There is some good that can come from space. If nothing else, we wonder who the first painter will be to paint in zero gravity? Maybe they will be famous? You never know.

Point: As long as space travel doesn’t drain resources on this planet, there is some good that come from space exploration. Don’t junk the solar system up. We all have to live here.

Technology

The future can be better. We have to think a few centuries in advance, seems most people are only thinking, 5 years, or 10 years into the future. This simply won’t do, we have to plan a few hundred years in advance. Life could be better for everyone with the proper use of technology.

We need systems that work. What we have today isn’t great. Its all kind of neat, but just expensive toys compared to what we need. The way things are, most people are being taken advantage of. Seems some people put profits ahead of everything. This has to change.

Resources

There are enough resources when used properly. Waste will leave us wanting more in a few centuries. We have to think in advance. Some of the things that need to be changed include using hydrogen fuel cells that output more water, and the correct use of nuclear fuels.

Our cities are awful wasteful. We need to find ways to have better community and education resources. And the use of resources in a more positive way. Water is important to our survival, and must be maintained.

We need cities that are better designed for transportation, around central hubs with points of interest. Also, transportation to and from points used for shopping. This has to be a lot better.

Design cities with enough advance knowledge that will work for long periods of time, even with growth.

Food

Don’t muck with the good stuff.

Conclusion

Please start planning five centuries in advance. We have to have systems that will work and don’t disturb life as we know it. We have to be able to give people some hope for the future. I think the status quo is just waiting to be broken; we could all have better lives. People wouldn’t feel taken advantage of if their lives were worthy of living. We simply have to have enough culture to sustain wanting to exist in this world. The lack of culture is going to cause people to feel dis-heartened.

The Human Paradox

The Difference; What Separates Men From Humans

There are just a few things that really you need to know. While the topic will generate a broad discussion of many topics, the focus today is on the subject of what separates a man from a human.

It is a popular misconception that all men are human. Really there are men and their kin in this world, then there are humans. The two kinds it seems have been at each others throats for eons. Really something has to be done to make life better for everyone.

One of the main differences between a male human and a man is that the man has a soul. Humans of themselves have no immortal soul and are just living clay.

A man however has a true soul that can not be replaced. While many a man has had mortal parents that were human, the difference will always soon become clear by his early twenties.

Some human religions preach that the humans have no immortal soul, therefore they are a religion for humans. Real men should have nothing to do with them. Real men have no need for religion.

Real men are few and far between; even more rare in this world is a true lady. But that is a different matter. Most of the women in this world are all humans. This however doesn’t mean that a man can not be born from a human. Such is life.

Real men are different than humans. If you looked closely, the differences in behavior would shock you. A human is really little more than magnetic ink. That is putting the situation in a delicate way and being kind.

All too long, my kind have been abused, tortured, and cheated out of living a good life by humans that hate true men. They are not kind, respectful, or loving towards men that are true men.

It’s not any longer about the battle of the sexes, because the men in this world have been pushed all too far by those that are human in this world who have hurt my kind.

Wanted my life better a long time ago. It is too late to make it right with me. The humans in this world must be taught some important lessons. Mostly that in real life, they are nothing more than magnetic ink.

Remember to be kind, Life has been far too cruel. Treat others with respect, regardless of what paradox there is.

Real men shouldn’t eat watermelon. Once a pumpkin, always a pumpkin. Smashing Pumpkins Forever!

Balance This

Validation Systems Essay

The world has some problems. Many of them can be solved. On matters of being valid, there is a complete lack of uniformity. This problem has created the mess this country and world now faces.

There are a lot of reasons people can feel valid. There is however something very toxic about people who are only self validated by themselves. Chiefly that they are without a doubt the biggest A-Holes on the planet. Think about it, someone that doesn’t care what anyone else thinks of them, and they think they are great; instant recipe for buttholes.

There needs to be a basic system of validation for people that are alive. This system of validation has to be open to anyone regardless of race, religion, disability, gender, or status.

Basically to be valid you have to meet a general competency test, and then expand on that competency every two years with at least two subjects.

The problem with today’s world is that you can no longer depend upon your family to make you feel valid, and you won’t get it from social media, or anyone else in today’s society.

A lot of times, people set up situations to invalidate someone for their own selfish purposes. And in today’s society once someone has made you invalid, you can never rise back up. The system will beat you to death.

There needs to be some level of fairness and dignity to be maintained in situations like these. Basic human rights are being violated by people who claim to be valid on the basis of being holy.

There needs to be a system that allows people to feel valid in the modern society without having to depend upon their family, or social media to feel like they are more alive than a warm sack of shit.

The wrongs that have been done in this world, there is no protection in place for people who have been condemned to death by the guise of a loving family member. There is no way to show proof otherwise either. There is no system with proper checks and balances in place to ensure that these things no longer happen. There is abuse of power, by people that are supposed to be good people. I see no resolution in the matter, and the injustice that has been done is unlawful and immoral.

There needs to be a system in place that people can seek validation on the basis of their competency, their skill, and their talents. Without such, this world will continue to be a cruel ruthless place to exist.

There is no system to protect people from the abuse of power in situations where power imbalances exist. This is especially important in the family and household.

Without some way to be valid in todays world, most people are going to be left to die. There has to be some system that protects people and something they can point to and say that they are not worthless trash in the world.

Something has to be done to prevent the abuse of power, where power imbalances are currently being abused. People that are cruel will continue to get away with being cruel without protections put in place where people can prove what they are made out of.

When the validation needed is withheld regardless of skill, effort, or talent; there is always a problem. When a person has no way to get, have, or maintain feeling valid, regardless of what effort they put forth there are clear signs of abuse.

Without a system to allow people to have something to point to and say they are valid, else the whole world is just worthless slaves. You don’t want that, do you?

Life has to get a lot better, and many problems have to be solved. Education is an important factor in life, and when there are people that abuse their power, education is abolished.

I would like to see this get a lot better, however there is no clear way to make it better, and there is no one to turn to for help. There are no clear checks and balances in place to protect people from being abused like I have been.

There are problems when your family makes you feel invalid and no one else will even care or pay any attention to you regardless of what effort you put forth. It makes a person seek attention, and without giving it thought will end in disaster for most people.

In conclusion, there needs to be a system that people can feel like they are valid and that gives them the feeling of being valid at something. There also has to be systems that prevent power imbalances from being exploited for wrongful reasons.

There has to be the standard that upholds dignity and the rights of living beings in this galaxy. The abuse of power and the lack of upholding ones dignity have gross moral consequences for those responsible. Solve this problem. On the bounce!!

The End Of The Yuppies

Interesting times. One of my favorite memories was being in my twenty’s at the time, working a cool job; and lunch was $20 bucks. Back then, the $20 dollar bill was lovingly referred to as a Yuppy food coupon.

Seems those days are long gone. An ode to my youth. Seems these days; even the poets and bleeding hearts are looking for a free meal. Its been said there is no such thing as a free meal. Yet, we dig deep into our pockets and think of the meaning of zen; only to grasp the world is empty and devoid of meaning.

Seems this society has lost its way; however, I don’t believe the Yuppies are to blame for this problem. Maybe the boomers had something to do with it? Maybe it was the problem with people that didn’t understand the question.

Either way, its a problem now. The days of the twenty dollar bill for lunch has ended. We are damn lucky if we get to eat one meal a day; and that one is likely soup or something from mums kitchen.

If I had a time machine, I would go back to the late 90’s just for lunch. I know its selfish of me, but a man has to eat somewhere. My projects seem to be stuck in limbo, and I’m without a good bimbo to waste my time with. These days are tough. Never did master the art of wasting my time. Maybe some other life, when times are much better.

I thought it was going to get better, it seems salvation only comes in our dreams these days. Where did all the Yuppies go? Oh yeah, I forgot; its 2020 and they are all old people now. Pity. What I really want to know is what happened to all those jobs that was keeping the Yuppies in food coupons go?

We could use some of that these days.

May You

May You

The world needs something. Do you know what the world really needs a lot more of? Maybe you can guess? Okay swell, now everyone should know!

May you have peace of mind. Really! To be living in these times and these uncertain moments of time. Everyone is going to need someone to take it easy on them. You know, cut people some slack for the modern days.

It is important. You can not be too uptight these days, otherwise; you are likely to implode upon yourself. Everyone is pushed to the limits these days, everyone needs some space, some room to breath.

And if you are feeling really stressed, it is best you avoid people all together. Just until you get calmed back down and can deal with the day to day stress of life.

How to cool down

If you can do some breathing exercises and cool off your heart and mind a little bit, then venture back out into the world of the crazy life that we are all living.

To be able to live in this world, one needs the skills of a monk. You have to be emotionally strong enough and spiritually strong enough to weather the storms of life.

It seems you also need the strength of a soldier. Because there are fights out there looking for you. The best advice I can give you is to be a member of the “No Sword” school of thought. That is while carrying a sword, it’s not the first thing to settle the dispute.

Really though, you have to think like a monk. People are hard headed in this world. And they are often ignorant of their actions and how cruel they are. However sometimes you have to bear the blows and roll with it. Not always; but sometimes it is necessary.

May you have peace. May you have peace of mind. Cultivate your monk like personality and grow spiritually to the point that these problems in this world don’t require a sword to settle the problems in your favor.

Solutions

It is the best one could hope for under the circumstances. Eventually these cruel people will have to have a cure for what plagues them. Everyone these days seems to have fallen short of being human kind.

May you search for peace. Look for it. Seek it out. Maybe the edge of the sword will not find you while you are sleeping in your bed.

The Stranger

After forty-five years in this world some of the mystery is missing. Sometimes a stranger will smile, and in passing the whim that some might know of a life outside this world. Seems there are many strangers in this world.

Seems to me; this is not my world. The current situations in this world leave no doubt in my mind, this world is a fright. Seems like I’m the one who is a stranger in this world. If it were my world, there would have been someone to spend time with me. Hence, my belief that this is not my world.

My world would have been kinder. By far. I’ve complained about the mis-treatment in this world for a long time. Seems no one has any feelings of sympathy for me about it. They must believe I’m not one of them, thus my problems are my own. It really feels like no one cares. It really does.

This isolation isn’t healthy. I have searched for twenty years for a way to make it better. However, I’ve been treated like this stranger in this world for much longer than that. Seems there isn’t one person in this world that knows more than my first name. This isolation isn’t working out very well. Tired of being treated like a stranger.

This isolation has been a problem a long time. I have asked them to make it better. They however seem to be deaf and fail to listen. It doesn’t bother them I’m always alone like this. A man at my age, should have had a family and loved friends in my life. Seems there is none of that.

I’m not popular. It feels like I’m not even liked in this world. Sometimes it is a lot to have to bear. Some kind of curse is what it feels like to me. As if someone were doing me harm from not far off. Wish that I could break this curse that is upon me. I’ve had to get tough and endure the pain of it. I wonder how much you could endure? Think you are tough? My life would kill you. It has been rough.

There are no friends in this world. I’m always alone. No one stays in touch with me. Seems no one even gives a shit. I’ve been forgotten a long time. Maybe it doesn’t matter. However, when you treat people living in your world like total strangers, it doesn’t make for good feelings from those who would like better.

At this point, humans have fallen out of my favor. I used to esteem them fairly high on the list. Didn’t know the difference back then. But twenty years of torture and hell have changed my viewpoints. Its all different now. Its sad that I have been here forty-five years, and that at this point in my life; I feel this isn’t my world.

I feel like a total stranger in this world. No real friends. No job. No girlfriend. No one really cared. They aren’t bothered by my situation, as if I’m not their kin. But I am someone’s kin. Maybe they aren’t from around here. I kind of have my hopes set. This world is a mess.

I’m bored with the status quo. Life is. Things are. I wanted a lot better. Feeling like, damn. No one to spend time with me. This isolation has been tough to deal with. Seems no one really cared either. As if I didn’t matter enough for them to give a damn.

Maybe there are a lot of people that feel like I do? Maybe. People need to be better. Life has to get better. It really does. Because if life isn’t going to get better, then by all means it has to get much worse before they will listen. Somehow, I believe they won’t ever listen. Maybe I’m wasting my time? Maybe!

Humans aren’t good companions. Never been made to feel like this world is going to work out for me. Maybe its time I moved on to some other world in this galaxy. Might be better. Maybe there is someone else in this universe that misses me. I hope so.

See my video about making life kinder and better in my next post following this one. Go on, watch the video. It is short and to the point. Its about having compassion and showing people kindness.

Thanks!

Project Write A Book

Thoughts On Being An Author

There are many activities in life that can bring a person happiness. Having a wonderful life is just the start, there are some things in life that everyone should try at least once.

For me, this includes having written a book, or two. Being an author has a special kind of rewards to it. To say that writing an entire book with your own two hands and publishing it is a feat would be an understatement.

Writing your first book will make you pull your hair out. Learning to think in words and writing well, while trying to keep the plot strait, and not loose sight of the goals, it is quite the task to perform.

It gets easier once you write on a regular basis. However the first book will always have a special place in your heart as something you can be proud of having done. It takes an incredible amount of focus and attention to detail to write an entire book.

It is something everyone should do. Really! I think most people should write at least one book in their lifetime. With the technology we have available today, it is not only possible; it is also very practical.

Learn To Write, Learn To Think

People that write, are also people that read. My thinking in this matter is that if people were to write more often, then maybe they would start reading a lot more too.

While there is no proof that writers read more, I think it is sensible to believe that people that write read more often. I know my ability to read and write have improved over the years.

However, I have not undertaken the massive effort to write a new book in some ten years. While I have dabbled in short stories off and on over the years, actually writing a full book; daunting and frightening.

This may be one reason I recommend that others take on this project of writing their first book, because people need the experience of writing that first book and being scared shitless and out of their minds with trying to edit it.

I want the best for you. I really do. Hence, my suggestion that you take the time, learn to write; then start writing your first book. If you start now; four or five years from now, you might make it happen.

Results Are Few, But Worth It!!

Don’t expect success. Don’t expect rave reviews. However, what you will learn about the process and the effort it takes to complete this project are invaluable. It’s the kind of feeling you couldn’t get from watching TV.

Take the time, start today. Write the book that you want to read. Someone has to, because if they don’t; this world will be book poor in no time. There is a quote: Books will get you through times with no money; but money won’t get you through times without books.

That is likely very true. I wouldn’t know; the only thing I have are my books. It might be nice to have a taste of what the other side feels like, but I think I will keep most of my books.

Like I said, there is no experience like writing and publishing your first book. It’s a gigantic task. It takes months or years of effort, and will make you question what you know. You have to write something that you really believe in. See where it takes you; you might like it.

Please write something that puts beauty back into life. We have enough problems with life as it is. However, the issues of how to resolve conflict are subjects of entire library’s. Yet, remember to write something with a sense of hope, and make it beautiful so that the reader wants to read it.

Have Some Love

This takes being really in love with the words you write. You have to have a respect for them. Words and ideas can change the world, given enough time and skill.

As far as writing a new book; I have my doubts about taking on this task in the near future. Maybe someday, when I have the idea that really sits with me like a ton of bricks. My interest is really in putting something beautiful back into life. I’m going to have to work on it for a while.

Thus, you should start today. Because it may take many years for your book to come to completion. It is an important project that everyone should undertake once in their lifetime. It is also something that everyone should have to endure too. It will change your opinion of the task of writing good books.

Maybe if enough people write their first book, they will start to appreciate what good writing is really about? Maybe. One can always have hope. Maybe your book will change the world; give it a shot.

Books I have Read

In all fairness, I’m not reading much these days. I have been focused on writing and doing creative things. In addition to writing, I have been making music, playing with making video, and doing photography. That said, I’m including a link to all the books I have read in the last twenty years.

I have however read a number of books in my lifetime. About a hundred and forty to be told. If you are interested in seeing the books that I have put on my shelf, check out my goodreads account.

You might find something new to read. There are a few not on there yet too. I guess I need to update my list again.

I’m thinking that I might start reading again, if I can find books worthwhile to read. Its tough these days. I’m a picky eater when it comes to what I want to put in my head.

My books haven’t sold a single copy. Its tough tits, I had hoped to sell some of my books. Seems I’m not established as a writer in this world and in this day and age. Maybe someday.

You can check out my books on my website: MY Digital Chaos, while you are there, check out the photography too.

Thoughts On Validation – What Makes You, You?

Thoughts On Validation

A few days ago, a subject came up about someone else and how they must feel about themselves. My Mumz said the persons self esteem must be rock bottom because the only validation she seeks is online. Below are a few of my thoughts on validation.

After giving it some thought, I have reason to believe there are a wide variety of ways people seek validation. Let’s examine a few of them starting with the biggest first.

Money In The Bank

Money – Lets face it, those with money feel validated and like they are special. They have either worked for their money or they have inherited it through their family. Therefore, they are the most privileged among the humans. Because, they have special validation, because they have the power and the money. Those with the most money need no validation from poor people because they are above them.

Having Employment

Having A Job – This one is nice. You get validation from making your living and from the work that you do. It is really one of the best ways to feel valid. If you love your job and are making money at what you do then you feel a sense of accomplishment and like you have validation from doing good work.

Having Love In Your Life

Having A Significant Other – Having someone in your life that is willing to commit their whole life to you. Let’s face it, having a warm loving relationship gives people a sense of validation. Having someone that is willing to marry you and have your children is a great way to feel valid. It will make you feel like a man, it will make you want to do better because you want to make their lives better.

Having Family That Loves You – Having relationships that are in good working order and having peace of mind that there is nothing you could ever do that would make them not love you, this has a sense of security to it. Its a form of validation. Everyone needs to have family that loves them.

Having A Few Good Friends

Having A Few Good Friends – This gives you a sense of belonging and having meaning in your life. If you lack all of the above, then having a few good friends will help make up for the hurt of being poor, alone, and jobless. If you have none of the above, you are a special kind of problem.

The Problem

In my life, they have withheld the affection of giving me the validation I needed. But the realization that I don’t need their approval is such a feeling. Human society is set up so everyone needs some kind of validation and sense of belonging to live a happy life. When they deliberately withhold those things to get you to conform to their evil ways, you have to make the choice to cut them loose.

I’ve been nineteen years without a job, friends, or significant other. Been isolated, poor, and abused for a very long time. My family doesn’t care about the work I perform, and it doesn’t earn any kind of living.

I’ve decided that the human race has lost my respect.

I certainly don’t need validation from the human race that I’m any good. They couldn’t live my life. That is for sure. No one would have lived through what I’ve been through. It has almost killed me a few times.

So on matters of validation, the human race has a lot of things that make them feel valid, having money, having jobs, having love in their life, and having a dog.

What They Lost

Therefore, what they have lost is their humility and what they were supposed to be, which is human kind. They have been cruel to me. Wish it would have been better. I sure could have used some help. No one was willing to extend the offer.

Humans are victims of the insane. They couldn’t think if they wanted to.

In conclusion, what I think of them is below average. Because of the way they have treated me. They got what they wanted, they hurt me a lot. Wish they could have been kind. The world is a sick place. Seek your own salvation; friend see to it.

Those are some of my rough thoughts on validation, there is more!

Profound Understanding

Life is. Things are. Sometimes you have to deal with it. That in itself isn’t very profound. However the idea that this thinking led me to is extreemly profound.

Why is there so much hate in the world? Do you know or understand it? If you do, then my thinking will make perfect logical sense to you.

For the rest of you that don’t understand it, I’m going to break the news to you. Here goes. There is hate in this world because people are unhappy, a result of their unhappiness is that it comes with a certian amount of baggage.

The baggage is hate. Because people are so unhappy with the current problems, there is more hate in the world because of it.

That is the simple explaination. There is a lot more to it than that, but that is the idea in a nutshell. You may be wondering how I arrived at this profound conclusion on my own?

The answer is I had to wallow in my own misery for twenty years of feeling devistated and laid low. When I started letting go of my rage, and starting looking at things for what they are, then it all became very clear.

Leaving

Why We Are Leaving

There seem to be two sides in this world. Everyone is unhappy these days and everyone is trying to stab each other in the back. There is no peace in this world. It is a sad state of affairs.

The hostilities in this world are more than one can tolerate. The weapons they use such as stonewalling, silent treatment, isolation, and gas lighting are ruthless and cruel. Our kind have grown weary of trying to reach their hearts and minds with words, and they refuse to listen.

The isolation in this world is beyond cruelty. Our kind have asked them to stop hurting us like they have done. They refuse to listen. They will not rectify the situation or make it better. We find their actions cruel and ruthless.

It is time to leave this world. Our words have fallen on deaf ears far too long for us to continue trying to use logic and reason with them. Obviously they are too ignorant to listen.

The only item left in this mess is to get justice from the true God for the abuse, torture, and violence they have done to us. They can not be allowed to do this kind of treatment to others that may come into this world and try to live here.

They have created a hostile world. We can not live in this world with them like it is. They want a living death for warm sacks of shit. Pity they don’t know how to live. Let the dead bury the dead. We want to live.

We wanted life to be better for everyone. They can not listen, or understand. And they have become senseless persons in their thinking. They are not even teachable in their thinking. It is a waste of time to try to reason with them. They are deaf and blind. Clearly.

Pity. The world is going to sink. Everyone on spaceship earth was supposed to be acting like crew. What we got is a lot of damn idiots.

So Long, and Thanks For All The Fish

The Boomers Have It All Wrong

Truth!!

The world is a mess. Trying to conform to an insane world, makes you insane. The lies and deceit that make up what is normal is taking its toll. They are using double binds to complete the crazy making process. Obviously the boomers have it all wrong.

I’ve read things about Generation X, some say they are Nihilist and that they don’t give a shit about anyone but their own individual selfs. I want to paint a different picture, the problem isn’t that Gen X is a bad thing. The problem is we reject the conformity of the previous generations, that and we don’t stand for their lies.

Conformity to an insane world, makes you insane. The boomers have tried to make everyone conform to their insane ideas and way of life. Which results in looking like we are crazy because we can not reconcile their insanity with what we know and believe to be true.

The boomers live life like zombies. They want warm bodies with clean faces, they don’t want more than that from anyone. They think a life well lived is a living death. Jesus words ring true here, “Let the dead bury the dead.” We want to live. We want life better for everyone.

A Better Life

No one wants a living death. We want life to be better. This mindless zombie shit should come with no excuses. They are Wrong. The boomers have it all wrong. The living dead don’t want anyone with a dirty face. Which is hypocrisy. They have never had a dirty face, because a living death isn’t living. Therefore we reject their suspect bullshit.

Because life is meant to be lived, a living death isn’t living. There are mistakes, and problems, but without having the experience, then life isn’t worthy of living. They want to take all the fun out. And we can not stand for that. And people that make problems because they want us to fail are cruel.

No one can stand for the insanity they try to force upon us. Because, living a life that is no better than a living death is suicide. Its pointless and stupid. We must reject their stupidity at the way they want to live. Because to each their own, if they want a living death, then they should live that way. However forcing that upon their offspring is stupid.

We want more to life. We want to live, because we love life. Life gets better with use. Don’t keep life in a special box. Take it out, dust it off, and live your life. Special occasions are all the time. Our life is meant to be used. Life is not meant to be kept in a sealed box. It gets worse with being stored for the future.

For A Better Future

Make life better for everyone, be kind. Stop trying to force your insanity on us. We won’t accept it. We don’t want your idiot rules and your living death. Therefore we want life better, not their zombie cat shit.

Those that are remembered as fighting a war against zombies and idiots will be Gen X. They are the warriors and the Misfits that bring forth change. We can not allow this mess to continue, it stops here. So the future can be beautiful again.

Because war is ugly, and brings out bad things in people. This war has to end with a better world for everyone. Clearly the boomers have it all wrong, life is a gift. Use it!
