Human civilization progresses and maintains itself when you respect people who earn respect. – Jordan Peterson
Finding a deeper understanding of yourself takes a willingness to see that which you do not openly address. Suppress your urge to express thoughts/observations before letting them absorb into your own knowledge. It’s time to let go of the need to be listened to and start listening to yourself. Peace of mind comes from an open-minded, honest assessment and full accountability process of yourself. Prioritize time wisely. Figure out what you have to do vs. what you want to do vs. what you actually do.
Assessing yourself honestly will not only allow you to stay on track, but to guide the train well enough to have time to look for new roads. A true analysis of one’s self can be uncomfortable to see that which you hope to not find. This is a necessary part of growth, as it will allow you to express yourself more fluidly, and your intentions will become more clear. Stay open to positive guidance.
Psychedelics – being such a useful neutropic on the brain – could guide you to a deeper accountability process.
No man finds true acceptance in denial.
“I fear living a life where I could have accomplished something I didn’t.” – Neil Degrasse Tyson
Never forget that you are a constantly evolving species on a planet that is only as understandable as your life has allowed you to fathom. Never lose your sense of wonder in the universe and to always enjoy the journey.
Love comes from within; a deep appreciation of your senses and a curiosity towards life. We tend to lose this as we age. We tend to assume that life is some concrete fluid type of rhythm instead of seeing it for the imaginative world of what is. Since birth, our automatic response systems are reaching towards understanding with a deep curiosity for what is and what can be.
Never forget that the man/woman that you will be at the end of your days, is not a fathomable place of your current understanding. Coincidences and changes are inevitable. A strive for understanding will be unavoidable. A life that is valued is a life worth fighting for. Your will to live is instinctual. First you learn to survive, then you learn to thrive.
How would you feel if you died, came back as someone else and looked at yourself and your life? Is that the life that you would choose for yourself?
… Think about it….
Only you get to be you so might as well make yourself the best you that you can be. It’s all up to you. It’s all about you. It’s always been about you. That is why you are YOU. Do what’s best for your life.
If anyone else could be you, then there would be no point in there being a YOU. Therefore, your existence matters. Your decisions and choices matter. You, therefore, are not only YOU but a relationship with everything and everyone that you affect. Release your intention upon others, that which you have upon yourself; such as your belief that you would prefer positivity in your life. This is why you should be a positive force. Let others know how you feel. Spread understanding that allows for others to understand themselves, allowing you to understand how others go through similar things.
Treat everyone as if their life could have been yours. Only someone who receives and dwells on negativity would feel the entitlement to spread this. Your life and the ones around you rely on your self-awareness. Love yourself first, and the rest aligns.
Love plentifully and laugh shamelessly.
Once you decide to stop rewarding yourself, you will begin to achieve true benefits. Change the way your body seeks and acquires rewards so that a substitute of true inner desire can take its place. Allow yourself to feel desire & craving. Recognize its presence and its benefits. DON’T stop feeling it! Soon enough the subconscious wants will turn into conscious needs, and the true desires of your heart will manifest through your actions.
Suppress the want. Embrace the need. Begin the hunt. It’s time, indeed.
Your brain is hard-wired to grasp onto rewards. Advertising and marketing agencies, along with social media platforms, are targeting your reward system to keep you interactive. These agencies know exactly what you like, why you like it, and how to give you more of it. Don’t get sucked in to anything that lacks meaning or purpose.
We have a circuitry built on a chemical release of dopamine and serotonin. These neurotransmitters are quickly activated through the use of sugar, alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, porn, even phone and computer use: Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat etc. (getting likes, scrolling through pictures). When you stop using these EASY tools of self-satisfaction, you find yourself engaging with your environment to find a plane of existence that is higher than mundane pleasure. Who knows what rewards you will find when you stop taking the easy route!
Your reward system is what makes you want to conquer and seize the day. Don’t let anything take that drive away from you.
We spend so much as a human race figuring out who we are fighting against and in the end, ultimately, it is ourselves.
We all just want to embrace the inner god within us.
When we begin to standardize education, it can become problematic for individuals finding their true usefulness. To think that we all learn the same things in the same way would be contradictory to an evolutionary standpoint on information. We all have different desires and ideas, which is what makes us so beautiful and unique. When we go by the idea that we should all be learning the same materials from the same people in the same fashion is preposterous. When we all focus on our own ideas and our own mentors, we BECOME teachers of unexplored ideas and it is up to us to collect and organize the information we are given.
Explore the pinnacle of your consciousness and share this with others. Never let anybody else’s standards or expectations of you become your own outlook on yourself. You should be your harshest critic and your best friend. If you aren’t doing well, don’t wait for someone else to tell you to do well. Look at yourself honestly and change.
