On Walking

“You’ve got brains in your head and feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” –Dr. Seuss Every person who is worth imitating has at least one of two things in common… they walk and/or and they meditate. There are absolutely some other qualities, which are (and should be) “imitate-able”, but these are two that are relatively simple and quickly adaptable. At first glance, walking seems like something that is just a waste of time. Of all the forms of physical exercise, it would appear that walking is the one with the least amount of visible

Michelangelo And You

Michelangelo said his talent was in revealing. He would see a block of stone, determine what it was, and chip away to reveal it. You are a block of stone. In life, you chip away to sculpt your true, idealized self. This self as an end isn’t achievable, and it shouldn’t be since nothing is perfect. But as life progresses, you chip away towards this vision. You can’t help but do it. You feel compelled to. As you’re chipping away though, every time you aren’t your true self, every time you aren’t in control of your outlook, every time you

Who’s Smart and Who’s Stupid?

Who’s Stupid? I’m stupid. You’re stupid. That other guy is stupid. Who’s smart? You + Me, we’re smart. Who’s even smarter than that? You + Me + That other guy… assuming that we’re working together of course.

Play-Doh Brain

Your brain is essentially play-doh. You can sculpt it however you wish. If you aren’t on guard, bad habits can easily become implanted, whether through your own doing, or as a result of an external invasion into your mind by others against your will (however in some cases, you allow it to happen unconsciously). If not corrected, over time these habits can magnify and thus become harder to remove. However, good habits can also be implanted, and likewise, if proper care is taken, those can also be magnified and thus harder to remove. No one really knows what depression is.

Uber Empathy (or “The PETA Fallacy”)

All things are energy. Ancient philosophers from both the East and the West, most notably Heraclitus in Greece and Lao Tzu in China, both dating back to around the 6th century B.C., have reflected on this and documented it in their writings. In modern times, Einstein stated this mathematically in his famous mass-energy equivalence formula, E = mc2; mass can be converted into energy, and energy can be converted into mass. Mass and energy are one and the same. And, if this is true, then all things are one and the same, in essence… What does this have to do
