post # 225 – Energy

If this year has taught me anything, it has been that, the world is Energy. It may manifest in various forms, but there is no doubt in my mind that within all living things is the same Energy and that sum total is synergistic and belongs to no one person or entity. It cannot be contained and it cannot be destroyed, but rather it can be simply redirected. For the upcoming year our given powers allow us to redirect our intentions and actions as we see fit, this is our free will and through this journey of life we are to grow/learn/experience and bathe in this collective Energy.

“Energy is the currency of the universe. When you “pay” attention to something, you buy that experience. So when you allow your consciousness to focus on someone or something that annoys you, you feed it your energy, and it reciprocates the experience of being annoyed. Be selective in your focus because your attention feeds the energy of it and keeps it alive. Not just within you, but in the collective consciousness as well.”

post # 220 – Power of Choice

” Your greatest need is to clean out the enormous mass of mental and emotional rubbish that clutters your mind. You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life, work on controlling your mind. In most cases, that’s the only thing you should be trying to control.”

post # 218 – Single Player Game

“Life is a single player game…”

-N. Ravikant –

My interpretation of this quote, like many, is based on our views on life and your existence on earth. We all too often see the pursuit of happiness as an external venture rather than searching for an internal happiness. Realizing you were placed on this earth with tools, the mind, this body, your senses. These tools help us navigate our souls journey on this planet. This game we play requires only these innate tools we have been given and honing them for the sake of our spirit/soul’s journey. Working on our own mind cave rather than looking externally for our cues on how to feel, how to behave, how to react leads you to succeed in this game of life.
