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.

If I falter or forget I will come back and reread what I have written, to remember and reinvigorate my understanding of this pledge.

Most people seem to favor one extreme or the other. I have visited both extremes at different times in the past. Now, seeking equilibrium.

As a man, you are either an asshole or you are gay. It is common knowledge that men are assholes, and nobody likes an asshole (except for gay men). Actually, some women like assholes because they think they can fix them. But that rarely works out.

Every second is precious, a colorful vibrant display of pure being. Let go of habits. Expand perception to encompass all that is being experienced. Relax.
