Diamond In The Dirt

You have to dig deep. You have to keep searching. Don't settle for what is easy. Don't allow the lazy mind to win. Follow your gut. It sounds contrived but you know when something isn't right. You feel it. Trust it. Keep believing there is more to be found. Don't settle for lukewarm. Give me red hot or ice cold, not that wishy washy middle ground. Push. Irk. Prod. Make waves. Waves allow other people to go surfing. When you keep digging you find gold, but remember all that glitters isn't gold.

Anger Never Works

The moment you get angry is the moment you lose your balance. Anger distorts your perspective. Anger makes up stories in your head. Anger gives your power away. Anger makes you more angry. No battle, argument, discussion ever is resolved through anger. Only when the anger subsides can there be a resolution, although often things that were said in anger still linger like a bad smell. You can't fight fire with fire. You can't protest for peace with anger. What you resist persists. What are we all so angry about anyway?

Hide And Seek

Whatever we identify with, we experience. Identity though is a choice. We choose what we believe in and then we decide what that means to us and how it is going to make us feel. Then we deny all knowledge of this as being our choice just so that we can go through the process of learning once again to remember who we really are. It's the ultimate cosmic game of hide and seek.
