Buddhism

So,  after about a  year or so of battling back and forth with Buddhism I have finally decided to take the leap. I’ve started meditating on a daily basis and researching the ways of Buddha.  Ever since I started all of this it seems as if life has just completely turned around, I went from being frequently depressed to being happier than ever before!  My attitude about the world has changed as well. Although I still believe that the world is quite messed up and going to shit, I also believe there is hope for peace if we would all just come together.

So, I’m not going to talk too much more about Buddhism after today, I just kind of wanted to post a little segment about it. I didn’t have too much to say other than that. Just wanted that out there….

Christmas Blues…

Okay, so I’m having a bit of an issue…  I’m not too sure why, but I’m having a terribly hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year.  I don’t have a clue what it is, I mean life has been going wonderfully, but every time a Christmas song comes on all I can think is “I can’t wait for this season to pass…” I haven’t got a clue what it is.  All I want is summer back.  I guess maybe it’s just part of becoming a man…  Whatever it is I don’t like it.  Maybe once it is actually Christmas is here my mood about the whole thing will change.  I guess since it doesn’t really FEEL like Christmas my head is still in fall. The coldest it has been here is like 50…guess that’s why I’m having a harder time this year. Either way once Christmas day comes around everything will be better.

But either way I hope everyone has a happy holiday, no matter what you celebrate!

 

PEACE&LOVE,

What’s love?

So, today has been pretty uneventful, worked for a couple hours then got sent home. Not even worth my time, but whatever works for them… Anyways, I’m going to try to continue to write and start to come up with a theme for the blog.  Well, I guess it already has a theme. The theme of life, which is the ultimate theme after all.  So I guess that’s what I will write about from now on.  Anything that comes to mind I will just jot down on here for the world to read.  You guys wouldn’t mind, would you?  Didn’t think so…

Ooh! I know what to write about!  (sorry if this is a little random and has no buffer zone)

Love, that will be my topic. So, my girlfriend of ten months’ father asked me “What is love?” and you know something?  I had no idea as how to answer his question… I mean really, what IS love? Is it just simply a four letter word, or is there more to it than that? Is love the pit you get in you stomach whenever you think of that special someone? Or is love freezing in the cold just so your partner can be warm?  Or is love knowing that for the rest of your existence you want to be with that one person and share ever moment together?  I mean really, what is love?  Can words even define such an undefinable thing?  Do we even have the words to attempt to describe it?  All I know about love is that it’s the most wonderful feeling in the world and I hope that every person on this planet gets to experience it.  It makes this life much more tolerable, that’s for sure!

So, leave me some thoughts, what is your description of love?

Thanks,

PEACE&LOVE!

Sassafras the Poet

So there is this up-and-coming spoken word GENIUS (and my personal friend) Sassafras the Poet.  If this guy doesn’t successfully make you full of every emotion at once, then you, sir have no soul.

He is a painter, you are the canvas, his mouth is the brush, and his words are the paint, he is the MASTER of words.  With his first demo ” Distorted Society” I literally was left speechless, and still am.  I’m trying to write this review and as I listen to his words I haven’t got a thing to say.  He says it all. So here, I’ll let him show you what he is…

Christmas Parade Invasion

Hello everyone, I have neglected to blog in some time. I guess that’s due to the fact that I have kind of sheltered myself to the happenings of the world for some time now. But I have again opened my eyes, and I’m not liking what I’m seeing…

Okay, so what really set me off to the point that I’m ready to blog again is a Christmas parade. Seems sweet and innocent, right? Well that’s the way it should be. BUT, this certain group of individuals that like to call themselves (even though they have probably never opened a history book) the “Tea Party” invaded it. Well that’s fine. Everyone has a right to an opinion (no matter how ignorant) and everyone has a right to be in a parade (no matter how stupid they are) but what REALLY should NOT be going on is dressing up as Confederate Soldiers and flying a Rebel Flag, and instead of throwing candy like all the other floats, what do they throw? Copies of the constitution… I’m sorry, but this ignorant, racist, homophobic group REALLY crossed a line tonight. This was supposed to be fun and innocent, but this group made it into some form of protest.

I don’t know, maybe I’m making this into a bigger deal than it has to be, or maybe I am right and this group of neo-Nazis really crossed a line. Either way, if you’re reading this still, how about leaving me some feedback, good or bad. I want to know how everyone else feels, also I’d like to know how some of the Tea Party feels? Do you guys think they crossed a line? Or do you think they were just being dumb Tennessean hicks that don’t really know any better?

Peace & Love,
