Musings

It’s fine to critique people you like, as long as you don’t condemn or laud their personal worth.  If they can’t inspire you, they can still help you–they can serve as a cautionary tale.

It’s okay to admire people you dislike, as long as you don’t condemn or laud their personal worth.  If they can’t serve as a cautionary tale, they can serve as inspiration.

To me, it was never about worth; that perspective fosters erroneous judgment and wayward idealism.  It was about doing what I could with what I had in front of me.  Not just for the obvious benefits, but for the hidden ones as well.  Eat the ribeye, but make use of the hide, bone, and marrow.  Let others fret about taste and prestige.

You’ll leave them in the dust as you become a pure expression of capability and awareness.

Musings

I have to have faith I can learn something valuable from “bad” outcomes, and even turn them into unexpected gains.

Otherwise, I will never risk anything, and I will rot in my comfort zone.  All because I fear a “bad” outcome.

Musings

One way to stop taking myself so damn seriously is to contemplate how transient I am.  I may not even exist, or I may be in a simulation.

Which allows me to focus on what I truly want to do–free of dogma, hangups, societal pressures–and give it my all.  Because I’ll be gone and forgotten soon enough (if I was ever really here.)

In my opinion, not thinking about “who I am” is one of the most liberating, empowering states of mind I could possibly tap.

The Weekly Update: Echo, Kor’Thank, Musings Volume 2, and the Strained Brains Podcast

Kor’Thank word count:  72,654 Musings, Volume 2:  Musing 436 (out of 700; Musings Volume 2 is musings 350-700), first pass (out of 4).  Thanks to All Who Bought Echo or downloaded my podcast!  And BIG THANKS to those who posted positive reviews on Amazon or Goodreads!!!

News:  Progress is gonna slow down for the next week and a half.  I’m still banging out five hundred words a day for Kor’Thank, but since I’ve got my buddy Burt Murdock staying over, I’m gonna focus on getting some bro-time in and doing some more podcasts with him.  Burt, Doc and I recorded an epic five-parter last week.  All’s I’m waiting on is for Burt to give it a listen, then I’ll chop it up and start publishing it probably starting next Sunday.

That’s it for now!  If you’re a writer, I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!!!  🙂 🙂 😀

Musings

We rough, unrefined rocks have been tossed into the fire of life.

Those who cling to outdated ideals, who don’t honor the evidence they’re shown, who cling to comfort and simplicity when called upon to rise, will slowly and predictably be burned with suffering , then melted down into meaningless slag.

But those of who continually refine ourselves, who cut away the dull ore and polish what is left, we are neither burned nor melted.

We are forged.
