Skvalthr at Gullfoss

Something wild, majestic, mystical and awe-inspiring:

I would rather watch that 1000, make that 10000, times in a row rather than any of the crap spewing out of the thousands of channels of television network broadcasting. Compare to, for example:

Are you kidding me? MSNBC interrupts a discussion regarding ending the NSA for breaking news about a Justin Bieber DUI arrest? “Lean forward” my ass! TV has become almost 24/7 crap, shoved down the throat with some commercial intermissions to break up the raucous monotonous menagerie with more heinous loudly subliminal programming. May it all drown in Gullfoss.

Want vs Need

Begin decreasing the conceptual emphasis on what you “need” to do and start increasing the actual doing of what you want to do. When you focus more on what you truly want and move away from the false obligations you have been persuaded to believe are necessary, you fulfil your life purpose and by extension make the world a better place. Find the balance of wants and needs. Respect the systems that are currently in place and find ways to transcend the constraints that are not beneficial.

Be in tune with true inspiration and what is really wanted, instead of acting on what you have been manipulated to pursue by outside influences that do not hold your best interest. Your deeper feelings provide guidance and silent time in contemplation can help with the tuning process.

Get it up

Call Center Operator I had to call one of my credit card companies this evening to try and figure out why a transaction was being declined. After a brief hold, the phone was connected with a woman at the Seattle, Washington call center. She verified my identity and I proceeded to explain the situation.

At some point in the call, I requested a few details related to the account. She said, “Hold on while I get it up for you.”

I thought to myself, “That is rather provocative.” Continue reading

Never ask me if I understand. Under no circumstances do I ever understand. I overstand. You overstand. We stand on the same level in the space time continuum, much more than what is apparent to the five senses, sharing knowledge and wisdom. If you are not comfortable with that terminology, ask if I comprehend.

Chemtrails in Vilcabamba, Ecuador

Apparently, many people move to Vilcabamba, Ecuador to get away from it all. It is rather off the beaten track without being no man’s land. One concern among current and potential expats is chemtrails. After exactly three months in Ecuador (with most of the time spent in Vilcabamba) I finally noticed some.

So there you have it. If you have been wondering, “Are there chemtrails in Vilcabamba?” the answer is: “Yes, occasionally”.

Liftoff

I pledge to do my very best to uplift myself and others in every moment for the duration of this life and any others that follow. With the vast array of choices and opinions that exist, I pledge to continue learning and discerning what it means to live well, with an open mind and open heart. If I falter or forget I will come back and reread what I have written, to remember and reinvigorate my understanding of this pledge.
