Everybody needs something. People need something that is invisible. Something intangible. It is an energy you cannot see or hear. Less than light and more than sound. People sense this through lack. We seem to search for it relentlessly, unconsciously. It is not religion or material matters or status or even science. I don’t know what it is, but I keep hoping that I’ll remember.
When I forget, or when I feel lost, it is only because the world is too fast. It seems to me perfectly natural to find yourself discordant at a pace that is completely unnatural. There really might be more to life for everyone. Sometimes the difficult part to remember is to slow right down. And then I am home.
Pug’s got a new bed. It is shaped like a big pie lid. Pug wants to wipe his potato print of a face all over his new bed. Pug looks like an autonomous hunk of bread, wiping the juice from a plate at the end of a meal.
‘I’ll rub my funk all over it’.
This is what a friend of mine says whenever he feels the need to get all opinionated in print at some complete turd, sometimes for fun. Sometimes out of loyalty to me. This expression always makes me laugh.
Also a while back, we were both burning sage all over our houses to see if it really did ‘cleanse’ the air. (It just stank, but we liked it anyway). He opened up his wisdom aura purifying kit and said, ‘Honey, that’s a bitchin’ bit of sage!’ and he grinned like a monkey. ’Bitchin’ bit of sage’. Dig it.
….I am learning in this lifetime, is to remember compassion for those who knowingly cause human harm. We all do it to a certain extent, but it can be dangerous when someone puts money or greed or delusion of control above another human being’s health or right to breathe. The only reason a person would feel the need to control another person’s life is due to insecurity, inferiority, unfulfillment and fear. If you can balance out selfishness with compassion, then it brings everyone a little bit of peace and success.
Sometimes it’s hard to keep the scales equal, but it is possible with awareness. I don’t believe in the ‘cut throat world’. That is not my world. Most worlds are personal delusions of perception anyway. And I’m not buying into this fear based chaos which is so easily spread among ourselves. Ain’t all our egos talking uncontrollable-liquid-faeces down into the cesspit of humanity? Having a conscience isn’t a handcap. It’s an achievement in these turbulent times. And a celebration.

If the sun doesn’t come out in the UK soon, we’re all going to fucking die of Rickets from lack of Vitamin D.
1.) In regards to business, sometimes small really isn’t satisfactory no matter ‘what you do with it’
2.) Anyone declaring themselves ‘sane and sorted’ online is a maniac and you should laugh. But from a great distance. Then switch your laptop off
3.) Do not believe a word anybody says in the property industry
4.) Do not believe anyone who says they have your ‘best interests at heart’. Anyone who does have your best interests at heart doesn’t need to continually say so in any respect
5.) Watch peoples actions, not their words. Listen to your own words, your own very unique inner voice, then tailor your actions accordingly
6.) Do not believe anyone who continually has to say they are different, honest, nice, fair, experienced, whatever. If they truly are, again, they won’t have to say so. Their actions speak for them and you will see for yourself. A confident person will not need to tell you how great they are.
7.) The company you keep may well be the person you become. Choose your influences
8.) Believe in karma. Quietly
9.) Believe in yourself. Quietly
10.) Remember that you have choices, especially when you think that you don’t. Ask yourself, ‘what do I choose?’
11.) Express emotion. Channel any shit into creativity if you can. It can get messy but it’s well worth it and better than being repressed. It’s better than you not being you.
12.) Get the giggles
13.) Dream. Imagine. Take action
14.) Eat Ben’s Cookies every now and then
15.) Stay on your own path. Weed it when you can’t walk it. Walk it because you made everything clear
