the power of consciousness

your mind is the universal mind. in order to access that universal mind is in the now. it’s never going to be in the future.
negative experiences will repeat for as long as they remain useful to you. if something “pisses” you off, you’re getting use out of it, because it’s creating an emotional reaction out of you.
if you can learn to have this ballet dance of karma, where experiences move through you without getting stuck to you and you bless and release, forgive and you accept and you love, the more and more those experiences won’t repeat anymore, because you won’t get a value out of it.
the focus you hold in your life reflects how your reality turns out.

nope.

nope.

there once was a girl:
who chased after her future
and ran away from her past. 
holding the present carelessly between her palms. 
dropping it each time a memory carved the air or hope for a better tomorrow caressed the horizon. 
she tripped on today’s ribbon in search for tomorrow’s cord in hopes of unraveling a better surprise than the past had given her.





I think most people that are able to make a sustained contribution over time — rather than just a peak — are very internally driven. You have to be. Because, in the ebb and tide of people’s opinions and of fads, there are going to be times when you are criticized, and criticism’s very difficult. And so when you’re criticized, you learn to pull back a little and listen to your own drummer. And to some extent, that isolates you from the praise, if you eventually get it, too. The praise becomes a little less important to you and the criticism becomes a little less important to you, in the same measure. And you become more internally driven.

—Steve Jobs

choppy affirmations.

in this distracting world, i will carry on.
carry on and carry you and carry through.
i will silence the clatter. stampeding conversations will end. 
i will drink tea beneath orange sunrises and jog in the morning. 
i will stuff my legs inside vessels of cars, playing music and writing. 
all the time.
i will believe in God all over again.
i will fall in love with myself.
i will become my own muse.
i will start accepting love.
because somebody’s got to take some time out of their day and love this girl. 
she’s worth it.

molten energy

one day i realized i was sea sick.
on another day i decided to get better.
it’s crazy how it all happened. 
the journey to my wellness.
i
just
decided. 
it doesn’t feel much like a quest for security, but a reaching for a more “you” kind of existence.
in that i’ve learned lies all the healing.
the journey to wellness is a lot like avoiding looking around you all the time to gaze at others sickness and then believing you are of their sickness as well.
there’s no self-help i ever found in the keywords of a google search page.
there’s no knowledge that i extracted from the fresh smell of credits, library books and degrees.
there aren’t answers highlighted a florescent yellow in books and quotations, maps and lyrics.
i remember those nights when i thought looking at anything other than myself was the anecdote to my internal motion sickness.
my macbook pro was my illuminated bible
and twitter was Deuteronomy.
music was my anti-drug.
and movies on the couch were my voyeuristic tendencies out to play for a night.
all of those “dealings” were temporary fixes to a problem that never even existed in the first place.
we are pirate ships and yachts all aboard the same ocean and yet coasting our own waters all the same.
another’s perspective, trend, opinion, belief, popularity is but a giant wave of difference knocking you off course. 
as long as you are sailing, you are heading somewhere. 
somewhere could be anywhere. anywhere could be everywhere. everywhere could be nowhere. 
when you’re ready, you’ll just decide.
enough will be enough
i had to abandon the idea that being sea sick was actually an illness.
in fact i started to believe it was a delicious cup of molten energy to make my quest all the more inspiring and daring. i just burn my tongue frequently and curse at the wind on occasion.
