The Trigger System and How it Works

Why we might sweat the small stuff: Hey, I knock people for sweating the small stuff sometimes sitting there feeling so self-proud that I only get upset over the big stuff. Yeah rrrrrrrrright! Then, I pretend to not understand why people get all worked up about meaningless minutia. When we say "don't cry over spilled... Continue Reading →

Popular Culture: ​Just be happy. ​ Perceived Fool: Hey, great idea. Let me just flip on that happy switch. Oh! All better now! Thanks for saving me! Popular Culture: Love yourself. Perceived Fool: Oh yeah. I must have forgotten. Let me hit that "love yourself" switch. Presto! Popular Culture: Stop being depressed. Perceived Fool: You... Continue Reading →

The Trap of Black and White Thinking

Extremes live in a box. And at some point, we might feel suffocated and exhausted. One of the most difficult things to do is appreciate and see all the complex shades of gray in life. Often, we only see black or white, this extreme or that extreme. Liberal vs conservative, atheist vs believer, man vs... Continue Reading →

Belief Versus Knowing

The fact that we can find a for-argument, an on-the-fence argument and an against-argument on most topics on the internet is a good thing! If you ever wake up one day and all that exists is one opinion, that's when I'd start to worry. In a world where cult-mentalities are mainstream and where we need... Continue Reading →

The Right-fighters Way to Win Arguments Online

How to win an argument online: ---Misrepresent your opponent's argument when you don't have an argument. ---Misrepresent your opponent when you don't have an argument. --Repeat the mainstream narrative over and over again when you don't have an argument. ---Answer a question with a question when you don't have an argument. ---Insult, shame and mock...

The Hivemind Loses a Bee

There is no room for the Individual in the hivemind. There is no room for Truth in the group. Individuals were never designed to 'fit in'; we were designed to honor our unique spark and stand out. The nail that sticks out gets hammered down. Let them hammer you. If you are true to yourself,... Continue Reading →

Why Listening is the Hardest Thing to Do

​Listening is the hardest thing to do because it requires that you see you're not the most important person anymore. It is you acknowledging someone else is also just as important. Fully listening to someone else and hearing their story is one of the most humbling experiences one can have.

Dealing With Keyboard Bullies

​The internet is like a shark's tank. It's all because people unconsciously still live in the past. They are carrying around large amounts of baggage. All that baggage and pain gets dumped on you instead. The bullies, rather than taking responsibility for their own life and feeling their feelings so they can heal from the... Continue Reading →

What Makes Us Advanced?

Interesting that how advanced a nation is considered is contingent on how much cool technology they have. I'd prefer to think advancement has more to do with whether or not we're capable of unconditional love. I'd rather strive for that, anyway. Oh do I ever love my computer! You take it away, I will be... Continue Reading →

The Victim and The Thriver

It seems as if we all have different opinions as to what a victim or survivor is and many of us disagree with how those words are to be used. I have made up my own meanings as to the difference between these two oversimplified words. For me "victim" is the stage of grief we... Continue Reading →

Conservative VS Progressive in Our Daily Lives

We have the words "progressive" and it's opposite would be "conservative". We usually use them referring to political rhetoric. However, outside politics they have somewhat of a different nuance. I see conservatism as being conventional and honoring tradition and trying to keep what was in tact in spite of whether or not it is needed.... Continue Reading →

What is Positivity?

Being positive might not be so much about our thoughts as much as our actions, beliefs and behaviors. We can think positive until the cows come home, but unless our behavior is an energetic match, it's not positive.

The War Between This and That

When there are two polarizing opinions competing against one another on the grand stage, I wonder if the truth might be somewhere in between. I sometimes wonder if life is all about the different shades of gray as opposed to the establishment-authorized black-and-white choice system. Question everything. Life might not be about one or the... Continue Reading →

On Using Diet to Heal Childhood Trauma

Early trauma can cause, later in life, a physical manifestation if we are not doing our inner-work. If we are interested in healing the trauma, however, it might be important to go on a diet that allows the physical and emotional manifestation of said trauma to feel safe enough to let itself be Known. We... Continue Reading →

Are Our Addictions a Life Sentence?

We have been conditioned to believe that once we are addicted to something, we are addicted for life. But that is a learned belief. It comes from our culture's idea that being sick is either genetic or due to being unlucky. Our beliefs can create our reality. We are enslaved only if we believe in... Continue Reading →

Why We Don’t Change Our Minds

I wonder if the reason why people are less likely to change their political views (or any views) is because we  might speak to our audience in a smug, hateful, condescending manner that serves to shame the opposition. When people feel attacked, they are less likely to listen to our point of view. How do... Continue Reading →

The Need to Feel We Matter

If we didn't want others to see who we were, we wouldn't use social sites on the internet (i.e. blogs, youtube, social media), and we'd keep everything about ourselves in diaries. Some people love to share recipes, their artwork, their card tricks, their photos, their songs, their bad days, their good days, their job promotion,... Continue Reading →

Are They Telling You What To Do?

I​f we feel pressured into doing something because we feel we are being told to by either an individual or a corporation, by doing the exact opposite in rebellion only gives them more power at the expense of our own. The way to feel actual power is by following your heart instead of pretend-power that... Continue Reading →

Feeding the Critics While Starving Myself

Everytime I'm writing, I hear the voices ​of those I perceive to be critics of mine. They are doing nothing but complaining about my opinions, my personality, or my writing style. "Add this, get rid of that.... You sound like a...." My ego wants to please everybody since I don't deal with rejection very well,... Continue Reading →

The Problem With Words

It's easy to misunderstand someone as our perception might be limited to ​the ​ understanding​ we have​ of ourselves. But it doesn't end there. Also, ​too much left-brain and not enough right-brain action might be responsible: "THE PROBLEM WITH WORDS The right-hemisphere mode of function, as we have noted, has a greater facility in working...

The Struggle to Actualize Dreams

....And overcoming the inner and outer Debbie Downers of the world..... There will be people who will try and stop your light, people who will be unconsciously jealous and people who will label and misunderstand your passion for a pathology. Don't give them that power, let them go and do what you want anyway. I... Continue Reading →

What is Culture?

Has anyone ever examined what culture really is? What is culture other than man-made rules that dictate how one should behave and live. Dead men made most of it up.  Culture can compromise individuality so that when someone is authentic and living to the beat of their own drum, they are marginalized. Individuals are a...

My Opinion on Femininity

Society has rules for each sex, but they have all been made up over the last century. How much weight do we give these arbitrarily made rules? There are specific differences, but are those differences what we've been told they are? Do we ever question them? Contrary to antiquated popular belief, being feminine might not...
