  1. Hey, this is a good read, lots of food for thought. Godspeed!
  2. Hey guys, I think Youtube is a wonderful thing, if you are willing to unsubscribe from all the channels you don't want or need. With that being said, here are a few videos from my feed that were released recently. I think they are great. I am always interested in learning about quality resources that I have not heard about yet, feel free to share any that you value!
  3. @moon777light Just finished the documentary at your recommendation and it was awesome. It seemed boring at first, but I got into it. I feel a heightened appreciation for trees now.
  4. Why do I stay inside I should be living life Instead of watching through the window No use in playing safe Not gonna hesitate I know the storm is only mental I'm letting go Giving up the control Yeah I'm ready to Go wherever the wind blows I wanna see Where the road's gonna lead Time is ticking and The world is not waiting on me I've been dodging raindrops for far too long These clouds over my head they won't move on I've been dodging raindrops Trying not to get wet I've been dodging raindrops for far too long Dodging raindrops But they're all in my head, all in my head But they're all in my head, all in my head Sooner or later it comes As quick as it comes it'll go Whatever is blocking the sun It's only for a moment Running away from my past It's pushing me out of my zone Pulling me under the gun Into the unknown I'm letting go Giving up the control Yeah I'm ready to Go wherever the wind blows I wanna see Where the road's gonna lead Time is ticking and The world is not waiting on me I've been dodging raindrops for far too long These clouds over my head they won't move on I've been dodging raindrops Trying not to get wet I've been dodging raindrops for far too long Dodging raindrops But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head (I've been dodging raindrops) But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head (I've been dodging raindrops) But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head Ready to go outside And to be livin' life Instead of watching out the window I've been dodging raindrops for far too long These clouds over my head they won't move on I've been dodging raindrops Trying not to get wet I've been dodging raindrops for far too long Dodging raindrops But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head (I've been dodging raindrops) But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head (I've been dodging raindrops) But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head
  5. “Our task in life consists precisely in a form of letting go of fear and expectations, an attempt to purely give oneself to the impact of the present.” ― Michael Pollan, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence “Normal waking consciousness feels perfectly transparent, and yet it is less a window on reality than the product of our imaginations-a kind of controlled hallucination.” ― Michael Pollan, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence Yeah, the book seems sweet, I'd like to read it too.
  6. “A happy brain is a supple and flexible brain, he believes; depression, anxiety, obsession, and the cravings of addiction are how it feels to have a brain that has become excessively rigid or fixed in its pathways and linkages—a brain with more order than is good for it. On the spectrum he lays out (in his entropic brain article) ranging from excessive order to excessive entropy, depression, addiction, and disorders of obsession all fall on the too-much-order end. (Psychosis is on the entropy end of the spectrum, which is why it probably doesn’t respond to psychedelic therapy.)” ― Michael Pollan, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence
  7. Lyrics from the song "There's a space I'm looking for I grind all the time 7/24"
  8. I discovered this song around the time I saw your post. The name of the album is voyage. I love the honesty of your posts. Also, I might check out The Mind Illuminated
  9. Come with me And you'll be In a world of pure imagination Take a look And you'll see Into your imagination We'll begin With a spin Traveling in The world of my creation What we'll see Will defy Explanation If you want to view paradise Simply look around and view it Anything you want to, do it Want to change the world? There's nothing to it There is no Life I know To compare with pure imagination Living there You'll be free If you truly wish to be If you want to see magic lands Close your eyes and you will see one Want to be a dreamer, be one Anytime you please and please save me one Come with me And you'll be In a world of pure imagination Take a look And you'll see Into your imagination There is no Place to go To compare with your imagination So go there To be free If you truly wish to be Living there You'll be free If you truly wish to be
  10. The mother flew too late And life within the egg was left to fate Not really knowing how The world outside would take it when it came And life's the same For things we aim Are we to blame? Don't doubt the fact there's life within you Yesterday's endings will tomorrow life give you All that dies Dies for a reason To put its strength into the seasons Survival, Survival They take away and they give The living's right to live (its all that we need to give) The living's right to know The egg breaks all is out The crawling bird begins to scream and shout Where is the parent bird? A loneliness arose and heard its name, ring in For lives, begin Survival win Survival sin So soon the evening comes And with it runs the aching fear of hate Could someone still remain Who thinks he still could gain by escaping fate? It's much too late Don't underrate Appreciate Don't doubt the fact there's life within you Yesterday's endings will tomorrow life give you All that dies Dies for a reason To put its strength into the seasons Survival, Survival They take away and they give The living's right to live (its all that we need to give) The living's right to know Survival, Survival They take away and they give The living's right to live (its all that we need to give) The living's right to know (its all that we have to show) And we're all going (And we're all going) And we're all going (And we're all going) And we're all going somewhere" Songwriters: Jon Anderson
  11. "What if it was actually possible to know the point of life? And what if knowing life's point transformed how you lived your life?" "You know that fear you feel when you exit your comfort zone? Let’s alchemize it into fuel for your hero’s journey, shall we? That’s what this class is all about. With a nod to Aristotle and modern mental toughness coaches, we start by establishing just how important it is to cultivate our courage (aka to conquer our fear!) and then we establish the fact that you are not alone (common humanity!) then we take a trip down Etymology Lane to learn that the word conquer comes from the Latin word that means “to seek”—which is a (very) good thing to keep in mind as we get really good at alchemizing that fear into excitement we can use as fuel to reach our highest potential." "You are here to shine! The time has come to connect with your TRUE SELF. No more excuses. CONFIDENCE, COURAGE, INNER STRENGTH & LOVE are resources we all have within us. No matter what you are going through in your life - You have FREE WILL. You can consciously choose how YOU respond to life. You can Learn. You can Expand your Awareness. You can HEAL your emotional scars. You are the creator of your thoughts and emotions. You have the POWER to heal, transmute and let go of old karma, limiting beliefs, habit, and patterns that don´t serve your higher good. Everything is a part of our learning and growth. To consciously create means that you ACCEPT REALITY as it is, and take full responsibility for your life as it is in every moment. Committed to shine strong and bright. Committed to learn, heal and grow. Committed to walking your TRUE path with COURAGE, STRENGTH AND TENACITY. With A LOVING HEART. Knowing that everything that comes your way is an OPPORTUNITY to SHINE brighter. Connecting to the WARRIOR OF LIGHT within you." "[Verse 1] Breath, should I take a deep? Faith, should I take a leap? Taste, what a bittersweet All my, all my life [Chorus] Let me face, let me face Let me face my fears Oh, let me face, let me face Let me face my fears Won't be long, won't be long I'm almost here Watch me cry all my tears [Drop] Watch me cry all my tears [Verse 2] Lose, soon have nothing to Space, this is what I choose A mile, could you walk in my shoes All your, all your life [Chorus] Let me face, let me face Let me face my fears Oh, let me face, let me face Let me face my fears Won't be long, won't be long I'm almost here Watch me cry all my tears [Pre-Drop] [?] Watch me cry all my tears [Drop] Watch me cry all my tears [Chorus] Let me face, let me face Let me face my fears Oh, let me face, let me face Let me face my fears Won't be long, won't be long I'm almost here Watch me cry all my tears"

  13. You might enjoy the book Lead Yourself First. It is about the importance of solitude. It actually mentions MLK and how a moment of solitude was pivotal to him summoning the moral courage to move forward with the civil rights movement.
