Wake Up

Wake up.  Wake up.  Wake up.

Chant your battle hymn.

Stop watching the false prophets.  You are the seer.  You make the decisions.

Great ideas are easy, but execution is a challenge.

Believe.  Go.  Fight.

Strangers don't want to give you a break.  Strangers do not want to give you a chance.  There are billions of people in the world, all clamoring to prove they are super awesome and wonderful.

You have to be hardcore.  You have to prove that you can do it on your own, and if you're lucky, people will see your greatness.  Then they'll want to give you a chance.

It can be very challenging, when you think you've shown how amazing you are (in a cover letter, or through your résumé), and then people aren't interested.  I'm confident that I have done some really awesome stuff, to show how smart/creative/capable I am...and yet my "dream job" hasn't fallen out of the sky into my lap.  And, of course, there are people who get lucky and somehow land killer jobs, or make a ton of money to do something that you could do with your hands tied behind your is not fair.

Fight.  Fight.  Fight.

So Much To Do!!! is life so crazy?

I've been completely inundated by things that I want to do (or even need to do)...same ol' story, I suppose.  It's ridiculous though, I feel like there are a million really awesome things on my mind, and if only I had a hyperbolic time chamber, I could make some of them reality.

Worthwhile thoughts of late:

THERE IS NO REASON WHY EVERY MOMENT SHOULDN'T BE CREATIVE, MAGICAL, SPECIAL, BRILLIANT.  Every glance in the mirror, every sip of coffee, even taking a piss can be savored in your mind.  The universe is an incredibly complex sea of energy, all somehow woven together into mind-boggling patterns and structures.  Chaos and order are, paradoxically, one and the same.

LIFE IS EPIC.  Even if your job is "data-entry" (you are  data-entrier?) or flipping burgers, we all share the same stage.  All the world's drama, all the emotions, all the challenges and opportunities...everything is there for everyone.  Mundanity is a layer that you are projecting onto reality, not reality itself!!

Caffeine is awesome.

Life is awesome.

Looking at the Sun

The sun is too bright to look at directly.  Instead, we must appreciate the beauty of the sun through its reflection on the ocean, its gleam on the edge of metal, its rays piercing through a layer of clouds...

So it is with the light of truth.  We cannot experience the truth of the ultimate reality directly...all we can do is bask in the warmth and the reflected glimpses that bounce off the surfaces of the physical reality that we inhabit...we must appreciate the beauty of truth through the lens of our fishbowl.
