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

 

Durden’s Wisdom.

I am not my job.

I am not my college diploma.

I am not defined by the amount of money in my bank account.

I am not my religion or lack of one.

I am not my skin color.

I am not defined by my car, clothes, or stuff.

Careers are overrated.

Stuff is just stuff.

Money is paper we give meaning to.

We are much more.

Who Knows?

Who knows what is truly good or bad?

When life can change in a mere moment.

Plot twists around every corner.

Our darkest moments can lead to the greatest times in our life.

Like the beautiful lotus flower blooming from dirty mud.

We too can rise from the darkness.

So who knows what is truly good or bad?

Drop the judgment.

Allow faith & curiosity guide you into the path unknown.

Horizon.

As I stare off into the horizon

I reflect on my life

The man I have become

In 29 years, I have come so far

Yet old unskillful habits persist

Holding me back from living the life I truly want to live

My breathe brings me back into this moment

In this moment I can change my life

I can begin the process of letting go of what’s holding me back

So I can acquire the life I want to live

Purpose.

What is our purpose?

Money?

Fame?

Is our only purpose in life to consume & buy stuff?

I believe our purpose on this planet is much more than what’s listed above.

We are here,

To inspire.

To create.

To help others.

To protect the innocent.

We are much more than our career, bank account, awards, and trinkets.

Oneness.

We are nature.

A gentle breeze grazes me.

As I gaze into the deep blue sea.

Nature reminding me once more,

How beautiful she truly is.

May we see the oneness of nature.

Oneness of everything.

The illusion of separation blind us from the ultimate truth.

We are nature.

As long as this illusion lasts.

We will not wake up to save ourselves.

Saving Our Planet.

Why are we here?

What is our purpose?

To mindlessly consume?

To suffer & cause suffering?

Humanity has hit a turning point.

We can not mindlessly consume much longer.

Our path must change.

To a more mindful one.

To uplift and inspire change.

To help alleviate the suffering of all sentient beings.

To save our precious planet from mindless consumerism & ego.

To be the change,

We seek in the universe.

Wander into the Unknown.

Why do we cling and obsess with the known?

As if we could control everything & everyone around us?

When did we lose our faith in the unknown?

Infinite possibilities lie ahead of us on the path unknown.

Embrace it with excitement & joy.

Prison Break.

Humanity builds their cellblock from within.

Years of fear, doubt, & worry.

Obsessed with control & power.

False sense of security.

 

Let’s plan a prison break.

Rip the shackles off tonight.

Let go of fear, worry, & doubt.

Embrace the path unknown.

 

Oh, how beautiful true freedom is!

One day worth more than a thousand in my cell.
