The mountain

This is good perspective on why to follow aspirations.

However, I would add that building working relationships with others, both people and institutions, is also important, and in the case of human to human interactions, it is better to think of people as friends in the sea of humanity, rather than entities to conquer.

Ever felt like a failure? Worthless? Lonely being redemption, broken beyond repair. A waste of time?

Ever felt that it just doesn’t matter?

Ever felt like you couldn’t do something because it was too difficult? Because you were just not good enough? Or smart enough? Or you didn’t have the resources you needed?

Ever felt hopeless, seemingly destined to spend your life daydreaming about what would never be and what was and could no longer be?

A tweet based essay….

“Burning each other to ashes is not a “twin flame” XD
In my humble opinion, for each individual, real flames come from holistic fulfillment.”

paraphrase what I recently tweeted (tw’d?).

Note: We have no affiliation with that spiritual poetess lady, just linking what I took as an input to generate my response. Call it academic legacy, citing and referencing everything for your edification/future research possibilities.

The passion that comes from compatibility of some aspects of two living human beings can blossom into romance, and move from general love into personal love, and create an ongoing cycle of positive synergy.

However, that synergy can turn negative, and become focused on pain compensation rather than pain expulsion, for many reasons which are mostly incidental.

What do I mean by all of those big words?

Q on Halloween (Saturday 31st October, 2015 CE)

So, I went to “Q on Saturday”. For those who don’t know, it is a free-entry even put on by local sound system/DJs from Q 100.7 FM. Not just local, actually, it has traveled to New York, Lower 48, and other places. It is usually on Thursday, but yesterday (and on the first time I went, weeks ago), it was on Saturday as a special event.

Being an outdoor event for the most part, it relies on tents for shelter. The tents used this time were mostly inadequate for handling the rain that showed up, but they would have been inadequate for the Sun as well, although the general plan was likely to keep people dancing so much that they didn’t notice.

People danced, including me. I line-danced and then later on I did my unique variant of “wukking up”. A., one of my ‘hood family sister types, was greatly amused. As was M., another sis.

Anyhow, that was fun, would go again, and I recommend anyone in Barbados, especially residents like me who are dealing the the rapacity matrices, to come out to Q and such, and tour the island (Q moves location every week), even more than the “foreign” (non-national) tourists do.

Also, I don’t have any pictures of it but I dressed up in an Al x Card / Alucard type costume, complete with red cape and super-normal abilities (to wukk up).

Enjoy Everything, especially thinking.

Oh, and an early PDF-only edition of the Joy of Thinking, Part 1 is now out on lulu, if you are really eager to buy it, typos and all. Revised variants will come within a month.

As an Editor / Producer / Capitalist, I think the market should decide whether to pay now for information, or wait until it is somewhat cheaper financially, but also less rare.

So the next edition will be somewhat cheaper, but more widely available, and available in parallel with this initial public for-sale release. Nobody should buy it, though, once the other options are out, as they will be better value for money, and even better value for time (less typos, perhaps a bit more details refined), and thus I consider this current release to be a limited run, and thus, work a premium price.

It has no DRM, so you could pool money or buy it and give (copies of) it to friends/enemies/innocent non-thinkers.

If you’re into giving things.

Rain is the best ninja (rambling essay)

“Rain” is the star of a boy band. He is also the protagonist in Ninja Assassin (2010), a great action-drama which is a good way to raise my mood. Because after all, it could be worse, I could be dealing with Rain’s level of opposition.

Or hopelessness.

And, it ends on a hopeful, high note.

Sort of.

Il pleut maintenance(wd??) (it is currently raining).

A bientoe (bientot has an accent over the “o”).

See you soon.

Updates ahead….

There is a lot more to write but I’m excited at the fun I plan to have with essays, in the future… so I will go dream about it, and regenerate a bit.

Plus, I want to make my blog posts more concise. They’re too long for ME to read, honestly, but I did them mostly in stream of consciousness mode, not market oriented, editor mode. Which is why it is so ironic that I edit professionally and help people avoid those mistakes, but not really. My ideal job is non-technical, but if you have many skills, sell to the highest bidder or do something to help others, and develop self incrementally.

For the next few months, however, major rather than incremental changes will happen.
