“Panic Culture” and Ebola

Airborne

I had the “pleasure” – if you can call it that – of traveling through one of America’s busiest airports today. On my way through, there were headlines and TV’s blaring: “EBOLA!!!” 

Scare. Fear. Worry. Doubt.

“It could strike you at any time, so be AWARE, be CAREFUL, be SAFE.”

Accepting What You Deserve: YOU Deserve it ALL!!

Dear One,

Deservingness. You’ve been told a lie and you’ve told a lie.

The lie that you don’t deserve it.

It doesn’t matter what “it” is.

But you find yourself always making excuses for why you have to do X, Y, and Z BEFORE you can deserve it.

Somewhere Near Lake Tahoe

Today in Lake Tahoe, I felt like a lazy ass because my relatives were up at 5:30 am, clanking around in their bike shoes in the early morning, getting ready to head out to ride 70 miles around the lake, while I lay in the comfy bed….

Got something to create? Watch out for toxic green slime.

Boots on Beach

This post isn’t for everyone. It’s not for people who want to live a life of consumption or complacency and be content with that.

No, it’s not for those. If you want to do that, I don’t have any words of assistance for you.

I do, however, have words for you if you know, deep in your heart, that you want to create something great, but you’ve been holding back all these years because of fear.

That “something great” can be of any type, ..read more
