Happy Rebirth ALL! It is the spring of 2017 and the world's reset button has officially been pushed! As we go forward together into longer days please remember that you have as much power to create what you want in THIS world as you do to accept what already is, so you might as well make you and yours something great! Let the chaos of this time provide you with the energy, tools and connections you need to make THIS world, the world you WANT to live in. It's gonna be hella hard werk, but it's also going to be rewarding werk. The only thing you can effectively give at this point is your highest self and that's something no one can define but you. So please, let go of the things the world has taught you to be that aren't really you and then get up, get out, and meet the people who can help you give to the world what you want to give. Stop trying to do everything by yourself. Get a click. Make some dope shit. Use your ego as fuel to build your dream, but figure out how to leave your ego at the door when you're fuxxin with your people; when you're fuxxin with ANY people. If you set appropriate boundaries, you don't have to worry about anyone taking advantage of you. Love yourself and the world around you will love you too; or at least leave you alone to do you. You have to be willing to let people and things go. The only way to get what you want is to let go of the things that you don't really want. It's going to be hard to admit to yourself that the things your ego has won for you are not really the things you want, but you can do it. I am doing it. It is hard werk, but it is doable werk. The cosmos is conspiring on our behalf. Let's do ALL the things without having to do ALL the werk!
Just to be thorough, I wrote a poem about it. Want to read it? Here it go...
The fact of the matter is... a good life is a lot of hard mf werk!
The system distracts us with TV And social networking Then slaps us with bad food, dirty water And eventually Dis-ease They sell us prescription pills that do more harm than help Incapacitates us Turns us into zombies But their day is done As soon as we wake up And begin the werk we were born to do So go ahead and commit Werk hard Sculpt your highest self Do everything The Most HI would have you do Wake up Learn and teach others Find discipline And practice painting And polishing your self Until you reflect Everything You want To achieve
