Life Is What You Make It

This blog includes a lot of light and dark spots. Life is full of light and dark. While yesterdays post may have seemed darker. Today’s post is much lighter and inspirational. Enjoy.

After viewing the video. I couldn’t help but think that this example in the video is what the true mission of Jesus Christ was all about. I believe this because of What he said (when he was quoting the Old Testament prophet Isaiah,

The spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to release the oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the lords favor.
~ Isaiah 61:1,2 & Luke 4:18,19

This video provides an example that fulfills all those things mentioned. Think about it.
It’s not about religion. It’s about life changes outside religion.

New Millennium Exile

EXILE

No religious identification

No media driven
obsessions, opinions or obfuscations

Oblivious to the world of professional sports;
my “team” IS humanity

The “causes” of others are not mine;
others ARE my cause

Not bound by technology;
no mobile device to drive dependency

All original biology;
no replacement parts

No political affiliation

Living in the absence of corporate control

An observer
in exile

Shunned, ignored and left alone
is the exile in cultural alienation

Cultural exile is preferable
when the alternative is slavery

Hack Your Flow State

“And those who were seen dancing
were thought to be insane
by those who could not hear the music.”
~ Nietzsche

“We might say that both the artist and theneurotic bite off more than they can chew,
but the artist spews it back out again and chews it over in an objectified way, as an ex­ternal, active, work project…”
~ Ernest Becker

Stendhal Syndrome: “A dominant impulse on encountering beauty is to wish to hold on to it, to possess it and give weight in one’s life…There is an urge to say, ‘I was here, I saw this, and it mattered to me.” ~ Alain de Botton

“The artist takes in the world, but instead of being oppressed by it,
he reworks it in his own personality and recreates it in the work of art.”
~ Ernest Becker

“Man cannot endure his own littleness
unless he can translate it into meaningfulness on the largest possible level” ~ Ernest Becker

THE NEW [ and evolving] REALITY

TRUISMS FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM

Privacy has become a myth.

The less things cost the more you want.

To go against the company IS to go against the state
and will not be tolerated.

More technology = unrealistic expectations

Etiquette has evolved –
You can now talk to friends around the world
while you are on the toilet evacuating your bowels

You will know more than you want to know,
and more than you need to know.

Greater choices increase dissatisfaction

The more dependent we become on technology,
the less capable we become.

A new exhibition in 2020 depicting life
when humanity was purely a biological life form.
