What are Synchronicities?
Maybe it’s nothing more than simple apathy.
Maybe it’s neither, and I am the one that is hallucinating?
I started drawing recently. (The picture to the right is a drawing I did last week) I’ve always enjoyed sketching random things during idle moments or while chatting on the phone. But, the last couple of weeks has been more involved than that. In fact, this is the first time I have sat down to write in 5 days.
During this 5 day stretch, I did a lot of thinking while the pencil (and erasers) danced across the paper. Moments of inner-chemical warfare. Moments of pure bliss. Moments of feeling like I am merely creating a new version of resistance. Moments of embracing this newly found talent and running with it. Moments of wondering how I could balance music, writing, and drawing to where I can maintain full focus on all of them simultaneously — and this is where I am tonight.
Hello, my friends!
I have a few pieces in work – expect to see the first by Tuesday evening or Wednesday afternoon.
The adventure has, unfortunately, delayed work on the blog. I don’t want to try to explain (and most likely bore you) with the details.
Rest assured, though, the posts will show up more often as we move forward. Regular blog postings are essential.
I haven’t told anyone about the plans I have. Yay for secrets! Don’t worry – the secret will be out soon – and you’re going to love it.
Have you ever risen in the morning, after a 6-8 hour sleep session, and felt as if your spirit spent the night away from your body? That happened to me this morning. I spent the last 30 minutes or so talking to a drawing of a fish (my son drew it for me) and asking him/her how I could explain this experience in writing. More specifically – in a way that would make sense.
The reason I felt compelled to discuss this with an inanimate object is because I often get my best advice from things that do not speak. Or listen. Or understand…I suppose I just need something to look at while I am thinking.
Life is short. We hear this sentiment often, don’t we? What does it really mean, though? When people say this, I believe they are referring to living a fearless type of lifestyle. Not wreck-less, but fearless. Purely intentional – stretching yourself and testing your own beliefs on limitations placed into your mind by a structured system.
This is what I believe is often lost in translation – Embrace the unknown.
When you stretch yourself, more specifically your mind – you put yourself in a state of feeling mentally uncomfortable or spiritually unsure. This feeling of discomfort is necessary.
If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction, were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the greenhouse effect and stop deforestation; Then there is only one known annually renewable resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world’s paper and textiles; meet all of the world’s transportation, industrial, and home energy needs – while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil, and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time…And that substance is – the same one that did it all before – Cannabis Hemp – Marijuana.

If you can prove him wrong, you will be $100,000 richer. (Jack Herer – June 18, 1939 – April 15, 2010) Rest in peace, Sir. Your work and dedication will forever be admired by millions.
The reason Jack put such a large sum of money up in this challenge is because it’s impossible to prove him wrong – because he’s right. Each of the examples he gives in this challenge can be broken down into many subsections.
What is 1+2? What is the value of 1? What is the value of 2? If we take the value of 1 and add it to the value of 2, what is the outcome? Given what we have learned throughout our lives, the value we get is 3. Now, my question is this – Do you accept that?
Is there any part of your mind that has a desire to question it or are you 100% sold on 1+2=3? If you do have, even a slight hesitation to accept it, then you’re on the right track.
The path to personal enlightenment may seem elusive – but it’s not.
There are many avenues that consistently move us closer. Maybe an extra 10 minutes of gazing at the clouds while being consumed with awe and amazement, secretly sending positive vibes and love to a stranger, or by staying silent and listening to your thoughts. It’s constant progress but the most important thing is that awareness and personal growth remain routine.
There are many pathways to choose. On this path – we discover fragments of our true nature. Something that ignites a fire in your gut and gets hotter as you put your attention on it. This is when you know you are on to something.
When a river floods due to an excess of rain, there is water on surrounding land that ultimately becomes a disruption for many creatures – as well as the lake itself. Life in these areas must now quickly adapt to this change or seek shelter until the water subsides – which, in turn, delays their life work. Even if it’s only a few hours.
If you pour a glass of lemonade into a cup and continue pouring after it has reached the brim, there will be lemonade all over the kitchen counter. This is a less severe “flooding” example. Now your main focus, instead of drinking a delicious glass of lemonade, is trying to remember where you put the paper towels. Who wants to clean when there is a glass of lemonade screaming “Drink me!?” Not me.
These 2 lessons are different in nature but offer the same lesson in life.
