You Control the Chapters

Kevin Hart Photo Illustration

“You’re basically telling your story. We’re all writing a book, whether you realize it or not. And the beautiful thing about the book that you write, is that you control the chapters. Whether one chapter ends bad or not, there is another chapter that starts after that. And it keeps on going, and your job is to make sure that your book ends well. And when that book ends well, you’re going to look back at your story and you’re gonna say, “I wouldn’t have had it any other way, because I did it the right way. I worked, and I got what the fuck I worked for at the end, like I was suppose to.” No matter what, it will pay off. For some it takes more time than others, for some it’s faster. One man or woman’s journey has nothing to do with the next. Focus on yours and yours only. You’re competing with yourself. That’s who you’re competing with — yourself! Nobody else. There is nobody else holding you back but you. That’s it. In any craft, whether you choose comedy, acting, the business world — whatever it is, it’s you against you. You can’t become the best version of you until you realize your self worth.”

Terence Mckenna Interviews Ram Dass

Terence Mckenna Ram Dass

I rewatched a video I posted on this blog in 2011 — and it still delights me! It’s an interview between Terence Mckenna and Ram Dass‬. It’s actually four short Youtube videos of one discussion. You can click on the link below to view the original blog post. It may not be for everyone — but I highly recommend it!

Invite Someone…

dangerous tea party

Invite someone dangerous to tea.

Allow the OUTRAGEOUS!

Teatime is the caffeine version of nap time.

Fling yourself into story telling and tea sipping.

Reveal your best dangerous self.

There are no rules!

Wear hats and gloves, and tell your most fabulous stories.

Invite someone you’ve always wanted to meet!

Be an adventure.

By S.A.R.K.

The Great Opportunity

John Burroughs

“A somebody was once a nobody who wanted to and did.”

“For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice – no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.”

“Leap, and the net will appear.”

“The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.”

“The Kingdom of Heaven is not a place, but a state of mind.”

“You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think.”

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”

“The Infinite cannot be measured. The plan of Nature is so immense, but she has no plan, no scheme, but to go on and on forever. What is size, what is time, distance, to the Infinite? Nothing. The Infinite knows no time, no space, no great, no small, no beginning, no end.”

Listen to The Voice

Shel Silverstein

There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
“I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong.”
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What’s right for you — just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.

by Shel Silverstein

Discover Yourself

Bruce Lee Illustration

“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”

“I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or to be judged. I cannot blindly follow the crowd and accept their approach. I will not allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation. Fortunately for me, my self-knowledge has transcended that and I have come to understand that life is best to be lived and not to be conceptualized. I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.”

“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”

“Reality is apparent when one ceases to compare. There is “what is” only when there is no comparison at all, and to live with what is, is to be peaceful.”

“Know the difference between a catastrophe and an inconvenience. To realize that it’s just an inconvenience, that it is not a catastrophe, but just an unpleasantness, is part of coming into your own, part of waking up.”

“Self-knowledge involves relationship. To know oneself is to study one self in action with another person. Relationship is a process of self evaluation and self revelation. Relationship is the mirror in which you discover yourself – to be is to be related.”

“Many people dedicate their lives to actualizing a concept of what they should be like, rather than actualizing themselves. This difference between self-actualization and self-image actualization is very important. Most people live only for their image.”

“The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.”

“As you think, so shall you become.”

“The possession of anything begins in the mind.”
