Inspirational Perspective on Life, Love, and Self Mastery

You Are an Essential Ingredient to Existence

Get outside and allow the sounds
to move the hairs in your inner ear – with no judgment or reasoning

Have you ever stood in the rain and felt sincere gratitude that you’re able to experience that specific moment? Feeling the droplets of water crash into your skin?


How about sitting quietly outside – focusing on nothing but the sounds of the nearby birds? Not in a way that attempts to figure out the meaning behind their endless chirping but – in a way to simply allow the sounds into your mind. Be present and experience the sense of hearing as nature sings?

If you have never done this – I encourage you to. Do it today.

With that said –

I do not meditate.

You Are Not Just a Human – You Are Everything All At Once.

I entered this physical world on September 11, 1979. I have always assumed I was conceived on New Year’s Eve 1978 so, I suppose that is the night I began this journey. It is also the night I began gathering information.

Not a day has gone by without my brain gathering information that I will ultimately carry with me in this experience.

I want to discuss something that I rarely write about — even considering it’s something that I think about daily. The topic I am referring to is God — what is God?

How often do you check-in with yourself?

Hey, how are you feeling today?

How many times have you been asked this question? If you’re like most people when you encounter this quick, passing-by, hello to a colleague or friend, this is the default conversation we’re all familiar with:

“Hey! Good morning! How are you?”
“Hey! I’m good, how are you?”
“Not too bad, thanks!”
“That’s great…Well, have a good day!”
“Hey, thanks — you too!”

Heard that exchange before? Yeah, me too.

Of course, the dialogue may differ slightly depending on who you’re talking to but the overall theme is the same. It’s a quick exchange of information that really doesn’t hold much substance but, we do it to acknowledge each other’s presence.

Ate the Aches and Reigns

Day 8. Tonight’s post will have a feel to it. I have spent the last 4 hours working on some upcoming material and, to be completely honest with you, my brain feels like french toast…with butter and syrup.

“Good evening LADIES and gentlemen. My name is MFrederick and uhhh…I’ll be your Captain-Pilot-Driver this evening. If you look to your left, you’ll notice uhhh…something that is on the left side of your body and in the same room as you. The mind is clear tonight, but we may face usual turbulence around 8:30 uhhh…as we make our way to runway 500, we ask that you please get out of your seats and clog up the hilariously small isle with all your over-sized carry-on luggage. Thank you.”

My500Words Pin Placement

Good morning, my friends.

I am starting a 31-day exercise today. This exercise is something I already do every day but, not with the precise tracking and accountability as this one. The goal of this 31-day exercise is to write, at least, 500 words every day for a month. Allowable content consists of blog postings, fiction/nonfiction work, or basically anything that isn’t email.

Consciousness, Imagination, and the Creation of Reality.

Can the result of a creative endeavor be significantly impacted based on the  surroundings of the creative? I ask this because I often question if I am receiving the energy of others nearby and inadvertently crossing our waves.

I do feel most at ease when I write in silence – alone.

Writers, artists, painters, dancers, sculptors, musicians, and so on have this to some degree. In fact, I believe even those who aren’t creating within the physical realm have this. We are all creative by nature. We are gifted these flesh-covered transportation systems with the same tools in the trunk.

Hello – I Am Your Biggest Fan

pencil sigHello, my friends. So, here’s the deal – I’ve had this blog up for a few days. I’ve spent hours messing with everything (messing up everything too) and it occurred to me, I may need some assistance with the features. So – here I am.

My name is Matthew. I am a writer. I’ve approached writing in many ways over the years – but the one thing that has remained constant is my love for words and the craft.

I write short stories, slowly working my way into the world of freelance writing and I have a novel under construction. (Nearly complete with first draft)

The post below is the test post. Thanks for your time and thanks for reading.
