Matter is not all that matters

When traversing a particularly prolonged, dense, undesireable patch of life, it is important to remember that there is much more going on than can be perceived by the senses. Unseen dynamics are in play and the ether is ripe with possibilities. What is wanted can be coaxed into manifestion with the power of mind and appropriate actions. And, there is nothing wrong with feeling good in anticipation, independent of the manifestation.

Pleasant surprises may synchronistically appear along the way. Every moment is an opportunity to gain more clarity on what is truly important in life and should not be squandered by over-indulging in loathing or self-pity. It can be helpful to defocus from the minutiae and hang out in the vastness of the universe once in a while.

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 monopoly of the illegitimate use of physical force that the systems currently in power wield and find legitimate ways to transcend the constraints that are an irrational burden.

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.


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.
