                                          Happiness, it is the ONLY thing that matters.
                                              Not to say there is no god, but maybe we are
                                          conceited to believe we are where the buck stops.
                                The past, the future, the only power your mind has over you.
                                  It will drag you there, and destroy you from the inside out.

Bruce lee, man of his century

Bruce lee. The name it's self conjures up images of martial arts,
the man that is a figurehead  for all martial arts in movies.
But it seems few had ever taken the time to listen to his philosophies
on life, living, martial arts... The man was a legend. Pound for pound he was the worlds strongest man; of all time! He would train for several hours a day, lifting, running 3 miles, he was a dynamo, one who would
rather die than stop getting better at what he could do. The most known words he said "be formless shapeless, like water." Could not be more applicable
in daily life than anything else. To go about your day without resistance. Surrendering to your thoughts, surrendering to life (in a sense) and leading a happy stress less journey. Not saying that bad things will not happen, simply suggesting an alternate approach. To calmly and quickly handle anything that comes your way, 100 percent in the moment able to engulf anything. On another not his views on being are interesting in themselves. To control and let go of yourself at the same instant. To be primeval and intelligent. Hot and cold. Yin and Yan.

Spontaneity. A simple word with a large connection to every facet of your life. When something goes the way you wish you couldn't care. Say something unexpected, something other than your grand plan occurs, our first primal instinct is, of course anger. Disappointment. Sadness. General irritability. Instead of gripping that the pizza place just ran out of sausage, or feeling poor that your stocks just went under why not choose a different emotion. Instead of ordering that sausage pizza why not get something you never tried? Hell get the lasagna! It may be better than what you hoped for. Your stocks go under? You're clients are all gonna sue? A change of scenery may be in order if you were to be irresponsible you're an intelligent person what could you do? If your plans get canceled, your friends bail, the car doesn't start, the coffee machine breaks, go onto a new enterprise!

                      The entirety of sight found in the short paragraph is rather overwhelming
                                    In a world of uncertainties maybe one man found the
                               Answer that many of us never get to appreciate and realize.

      Tyler Durden, the mystery man of fight club,
        His views on society, how we have grown weak is rather true.
        Obesity is a disease of self pity, self pity is rampant these days,
            The amount of men bred these days in upper class suburbia will rule the world
              But how many have a spine? Who will go out of their way to conquer themselves
             Then the world? Nill. The societal norm has progressed from "equal rights"
               To offense at the drop of a hat, a few people getting mad or scared
               Going straight to the cops, suing for a few meals in cash. Propagating this
                  sad little society. Fuck yeah Tyler, we need to build a new society on the ashes of this one.

                  Self explanatory.

The fact of the matter.

People from the moment they are born are taught to believe that a good life is just theirs for the taking.

It is not.

Neither is it true that someone else may take away from your life by impeding your pursuit of happiness. Less provincial thinking lies in knowing that you need to learn HOW to live. This does not mean growing up and learning how to clothe, clean, and feed yourself. It means learning how to lead a happy, relaxed, free life. Learning that no matter what happens to be happy. You see people suffer no matter the circumstances, if you get what you want, if you don't get what you want and even if you get exactly what you want the happiness is temporary. You will try and hold onto it forever, but change is a part of life. Suffering as defined by the Marine Corps is "unhappiness arisen from the difference between the way things are and the way we believe them to be." How many people do this? Complaining about life, a life that will occur how it wishes no matter how much you resist. Am I asking you to go out and control everything? To control your own life? Fortunately you may not control your life. The only minor fraction of control that belongs to you is your body and your mind. machines falter, people gain courage, and animals bite.

This is learning how to live. Learning how to control your body and mind. One usually helps the other, to begin to master the mind you  need to realize the mass and complete negativity of your thoughts. If you have extra cash  write it all down, it's a startling realization almost on par with cleaning out your old computer keyboard. It is disgusting, frightening, and puzzling. Disgust toward how much you are not experiencing and how much you are critically analyzing life, rather than living it. Frightening than by being ignorant on how to cut through these thoughts and puzzling on how you got to the point of thinking thinking thinking.

After this startling find go on to the first piece of action you may take to bettering your life. Meditation. Oh yes, the cliche view of a fat Buddha sitting under a tree may come to mind, or a warrior standing one legged on a post (Fuck yeah Mr Miagi!!!) is not meditation either. Have you ever tied a knot in a way that has taken hours to untie? A friend tying your shoe once and pulling as hard as they may? Wouldn't it be easier to slash right through that knot? This is the essence of meditation, to take your stubborn thoughts and slashing through them like useless knots. You don't have to sit cross legged. You may sit or lay (DON'T RECOMMEND LAYING YOU MAY FALL ASLEEP) simply taking in everything you experience. The weight of gravity on your body, the feel of clothes on you, the temperature of the air, every noise, movement you make. It is a sitting act of concentrating awareness to this moment, and stopping the thought process. When you master sitting meditation you may take an active role in living. Meditate what you do, pay attention to every action from the "mundane" actions of putting on clothing, to enjoying eating, to taste the food and not slough it down. Even the simple act of breathing can be refined, ridding yourself of stress will make everything you do simple and easy. It's an alchemical process of evaporating stress. It's rather simple, but for someone rooted in habit the action of changing yourself must be much harder.

Life is a journey. Why suffer it?

When did we forget our dreams?

The infinite possibilities each day contains should stagger everyone. The number of experiences I could have is uncountable. It's crazy that I'm sitting here refreshing my facebook. We live trapped in Loops. Reliving a few days over and over, and we envision only a handful of paths laid out ahead of us. We see the same things each day a slight variation of the last, every moment. Smoothly Following the gentle curves of societal norms. We act like if we just get through today, tomorrow our dreams will come back to us.

No, I don't have all the answers. I don't know how to jolt myself into seeing what each moment could become. But I do know one thing; the solution doesn't watering down my every little idea and creative impulse for the sake of some day easing my fit into a mold. It doesn't involve tempering my life to better fit someone's expectations. It doesn't involve constantly holding back for fear of shaking things up.

This is VERY important so I want to say it as clearly as I can:



I really hope i'm doing the right thing.

USMC June 13.

The first of many to come.

Look at you. You're young. And you're scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralyzed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as fuck and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget you have school the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours. when are you going to realize that you can do whatever you want?

Now how many of you actually did something, instead of sitting there?

This is my first blog

Freedom from failure, 

Freedom from fear,
Freedom from press,

Freedom from ego,

Freedom from the stale.

Well this is beginning of my
blogging experience.
What I may teach you, What you may teach me pales in 
comparison to what we as a whole may realize in our lives.
Don't be absorbed by the screen.
Because you will loose out
on life all around you.
