Stone Lightevery now and then life surprises me. challenges me to reconsider my convictions. today it asked me to take leap of faith. to trust that if i open up and let go i will get something better.

even if it’s still a long way to go, and i am not certain that this new path of thought is safe or even treadable, i have faith that eventually the fog of my old convictions will clear and lift.


ODAT4Calvin: You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don’t help.

Some days getting out of bed means being a biohazard. Some days it means being on top of the world. Mostly it means just being me. That’s fine. Luck? Nah, not much. Coincidence? Not that either. Fate? Don’t think so. G-d? Nope. I am with Calvin here. Rocket ship underpants. Unless of course they happen to be dirty, then it’s the dyslexic Santa.

 “If I am not for myself, who is for me? And when I am for myself, what am ‘I’? And if not now, then when?” (Rabbi Hillel)

There is an idea, embodied in a quote that I recently read, which to my mind, is one of the most important and vital master keys to: living a life of joyeous productivity and achievement unhindered by unnecessary bullshit or false constraint.

It is an idea which has been battle tested by every single person throughout the whole of history, who has ever accomplished anything of significance.

It is fully timeless.  It is the internal foundation and impetus for all action.  It has been, and continues to be, of the greatest value in my own life.

Would you like to know what it is?…

When there is nothing to say.  G-d.

When words are emptiness. G-d.

When I do not care if G-d exists. G-d

When life is a figment of my mind. G-d

Because… It’s there. Because… I can.

Because… Fuck you, that’s why.

ODAT 2“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” —Albert Einstein

So… I am having a bad day. Doesn’t mean my life is not a miracle. See, it is. I really shouldn’t be here. I really should be dead. But I am not. I am here. Having a bad day. Thoughts tumbling through my mind. Angry, sad and confused thoughts. Worries. Still, my life is a miracle. My day might not be. But my life is, and that is what counts.

OldbootsSay not in grief ‘he is no more’ but in thankfulness that he was.

Death. It is so final, is it not? It hits and a person is gone. Forever.

‘He is no more’ – and still he is. Because he was, he left an imprint in us, who are left on this side of life. Genes, Ideas, Emotions, Body Language, Face Features, and Memories. All that lives, exists and keeps shaping the world, because he was.
