Greed.

How will we break from the spell of money and power?

Caring more about the dollar then human life

Living as if our bank account is the only thing that matters

Sacrificing our grandparents for the dow jones

Even in crisis, the rich get richer

Leaving crumbs for the rest

I’m not a revolutionary

But a man who questions everything

Especially my own life

I will look within

Within my greed

Doing my best

To choose generosity over greed

And the love of life over the fear of losing money

 

I’ll Stay in my Own Lane.

I won’t change you

I won’t judge you

I won’t argue with you

I’ll stay in my own lane

For life is too short for me to focus my energy on others

Telling them what they should or shouldn’t do

My work will be to accept all as they are

For I’m no god nor tyrant

No dictator or ruler

My path is mine to walk

No one can walk it for me

And I can not force you to change

Grow & change in your own time

Or not!

Who am I to judge?

I have plenty to work on

Much growth to be had

Any energy spent on you would be wasted

For my life is my message

If others follow

That’s great

If they don’t

That’s fine too!

I’ll stay in my own lane

Living Our Values.

Compassion begins with me

Peace begins with me

Love begins with me

How I talk

How I listen

How I eat

How I breathe

How I write

I must live my values in order to make the world a better place

I must practice faith that what I do matters in an infinite universe

Burn it to the Ground.

Lighter fluid & matches

Ashes flutter in the darkness of the night

My fancy clothes, trinkets, and stuff melting into the nothingness of my once cluttered home

A weight has been lifted

Holding me back from living the life I was born to live

Freedom

Freedom from fear

Freedom from stuff

Freedom from career aspirations

Freedom from obsessing about status, money, and power.

“What designer sofa defines me as a human being?”

“The liberator who destroyed my property has realigned my perceptions.”

“It’s only when we lost everything, that we are free to do anything.”

-Fight Club

Which Path Will I Take?

There are many forks in the road.

Left or right?

Indecision paralyzes me.

Fear fills my mind.

My mind racing in circles.

Anxiety filling each moment.

Who knows where each path will go?

Maybe I could let go of this fear.

And pick up love.

Embrace the adventure that life truly is.

Curiosity can fill the space where anxiety once was.

All will work out on the path unknown.

 

Anchored.

Large waves damage my ship as I navigate the path unknown.

But my anchor stays steady.

It has been with me since my first moment of life.

And will last until my final moment.

My breath is my anchor.

It will help me navigate any hard times.

Breathing in I find my balance.

Breathing out I know that all will be okay.

Breathe in peace.

Breathe out gratitude.

Breathe in I know that my anchor will hold strong.

Thank you.
