Whoever said that young people are addicted to their phones…

Whoever said that young people are addicted to their phones…

…never had a dad that spazzed out and mentally checked out mid-sentence just to follow the ringa-ding-ding from his pocket.

 

(It’s a regular occurrence)

Are we flat?

’tis that time again when I feel like a zombie…

One day I am moving forward with my goals,
the next I am stuck in my room
avoiding everything.

I oscillate through all types of states of consciousness and emotions. Why does everything always pretend like life is one simple baseline experience? No highs, no lows. Their facade is “medium.”

BULLSHIT.

Maybe other people will start opening up about their inner worlds when I continue being honest about mine.

 

Dislocated

Frozen…but not the kind from being too cold. It’s the type that comes from a new intimacy with Truth.

Truth came to my full attention this evening.

Truth came to replace its previous stand-in: distant, shallow stories.

Truth revealed itself through expressed bravery and exposure.

It’s easy to be nonchalantly composed when theory runs my life.

“Those problems are ‘over there…’ Is this even really happening? Is it that big of a deal?”

But then I find out and realize that YES. It is. These problems are simmering in people’s lives who I see weekly, more than my own family and dogs. And now, it’s boiled over for me to see…for me to feel.

When people share their vulnerability it allows us to step up and meet them—to fill that once-distant space between us.

There becomes a new layer of intimacy to explore: humanity.

For now, I’m still processing, digesting, and frozen.

…but what’s gonna happen when I melt?

Those conversations that leave you feeling…

elevated and better than before…they remind you of the magic that can weave thru reality.

They bring out your most optimistic, excited, highest state.

They make you feel buzzing, with ripples of shivers migrating across skin. Kundalini? Are you hanging out too?

Thank you.

Let’s keep on cultivating these interactions, and prune out of the rest to save energy for what really matters.

What are we connecting to?

Where do we put our focus,
our energy,
our attention?

Habits structure reality, But…
habits can evolve.

*Break*
Grab phone

*Break*
Grab phone

Fill the walls
Fill the shelves
Fill the floors
With stuff, stuff, stuff
You’re not a collector,
You are a hoarder

What are we with our possessions?
What are we with emptiness around us?

*Microsecond pause in between tasks…*
Where are you?

Where are you?

Where are you…

…with loneliness
…with silence
…with free time
…with boredom

Where do your unconscious patterns lead you?

to items?
to people?
to substances?

*Break*
Fill the Mind
*Break*
Flood the Mind

with thoughts,
worries,
fears,
anything…
…just to not be alone with yourself
