A Thought On: Mediocrity (Live in the middle pt.2) Perfect Level

We go again,

I find mediocrity a really big deal. Considering so many people live in it, exist in it court it and feel it. There just seems to be an understanding that mediocrity is okay. I’m so open to that idea it just sounds like bliss being okay with a normal life; Although the thought of normal isn’t becoming of me I still covet it like Odysseus.

I am incredibly okay with mediocrity, although I feel forced to live out of it and observe it knowing it can’t observe itself. Mediocrity Is my favourite thing on this planet. People who try new things happen to be mediocre at it, whenever you try something new the result is your mediocrity.

I don’t see it as people falling short of greatness I see it as people experimenting and experiencing life which is the flavour life offers. Like I said I am not allowed to live in mediocrity because I observe it. Like most Genii, Artists Mathematicians and Highly Ranked Religious folk.

Theres one place mediocrity is not allowed in art, Religion or mathematics. All the superior thinkers in buddhism, shamans science and Art all come to the one conclusion of Nirvana. We explore and traverse the world of thought telling people what we think as life goes on we all end up in the same place. No one after them listens and instead follows them, mostly because life is about the journey.  We all end up in the same place though, thousands of years worth of written texts all ending up in the same place. Its mystical.

I guess observable greatness is what makes mediocrity exist and vice versa. I never know when I am being great but people from time to time tell me I am. Such is life I seek the tranquility people chase the storm of Genius and Higher thought.

Rhyme & Reason: Make the decision to live on purpose #PrimeNYT

We go again,

Recently I had a revelation and that revelation can’t be explained outside context and that context comes in a question — That question is; who do you want to be?

I asked myself this question for a short amount of time (Macro). It took me months to wrap my head round who I wanted to be it took me months. Not to plan my life or how I want to make money or what job I want. Those are still being understood, what I really ended up doing for years was asking myself who I wanted to be.

I knew this question was important because I have earned enough money/ known I can make a commission of my skills/ get a contract and I’ve gained enough notoriety and fame to where people knew me for one thing and in all of that I never felt whole.

I’ve come to find out I had to ask myself who do I want to be. I was blessed with gifts and an amazing talent which has earned me many creative skill which means I earned choice and the thing with choice is when you have to much life can get tricky when you’re starting out because you know no matter what you can always find another way. However to really win in life you need to make a choice within your options, and I have an abundance of options to choose from which opens doors for me but that doesn’t always means those opportunities are mine.

I have never felt good doing just anything and making money in “whatever way I can”. I have always been intentional and wanted to live my life on purpose. I have the intense ability to work hard and work a lot that isn’t the case for everyone but for me it meant these choices were not all the way positive because if I’m someone that lives life on purpose I have to make the decision and choose who I want to be. So I asked myself who do I want to be and make the decision.

What I learned in my abundance of opportunities because of my skill is that not every opportunity is right for me and I had to give myself a guiding philosophy and live by principles that made sense for what I wanted to engage in long term. These philosophies and principle came from all the questions I asked myself for years on end in order to truly gauge what really matters, as when I found out what mattered I found my purpose and when I found my purpose I truly distinguished myself as someone who knew what they were doing.

You see it’s not the statement of me living life on purpose that’s the key it’s my principles as a humans I created in determining what I want to do with my life that bought me to the answer of the question “who do I want to be”. I find no matter who you are if you find the answer to that you will live a more meaningful life, not an easier one or a more fun one more meaningful because you were a better person.

Rhyme and Reason: Where does the Light giver turn to? God is the one I turn to #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top, keep your neck up,

We go Again

People have often asked me “if you’re everyone’s person, who do you turn to” my answer has been silent for a long time.

That absence of an answer has left me longing for a human connection with someone that understands me, who I am & what I go through. For so long I had asked myself questions; deep penetrating questions since I was a kid. I would talk to myself everyday trying to figure it out and of the parts I did have figured out I would share it with people.

This had people coming back to me for some time but it would not have them respect me as a person I would be someone they take from but would never feel a need to give back to. I would shield them from forsakers when they were not looking and I wouldn’t look for thanks I would want them to be good.

As a person I would expect them to be better humans because no one was coming after them, instead they felt untouchable and that they didn’t need me… my own folly. The day they left would induce a fall from grace, I never liked that not ever.

In 2016-2018 I found myself being the weirdos amongst artists, no one really to relate to, no one who understood me, no one to challenge me or to channel the energy I put out back into me.

So I sit in my room and contemplate my existence hours on end searching for reason and meaning bringing myself to a place to that I can say I like, the meaning I sought after has taken me away from vices and certain toxic behaviour and brought me to a calmer status of life.

The only person I can truly talk to is myself and the only person I lean on is God.

‘Lean on me when you’re not strong, I’ll help you carry on, for it won’t be long till I’m going to need somebody to lean on.’

Such a statement on the world I can’t help but think about while writing this, I ask and God responds. I just want to be a better person for myself and for the people in this world and I find the questions I ask no one, not one of my contemporaries can answer; there is no peer or mentor who feels to seek within themselves a better them in this life. Some of us seek money and admiration, I seek myself on my time on this Earth.

Funny thing is I know exactly who I am and exactly what I am supposed to do I am really just compelled by human persuasion thinking someone like me can’t be accepted by the likes of them. Most of all the people I look up to have been killed by humans, what type of future does that bode for someone like me?

So I turn to God, ask him why me, why this way, why love, why do so many people despair, why can I wash it away, why does speaking to me make other people feel better, why can I draw out somebody’s greatness. The questions go on and on and they roll around my mind seeking to be answered now not by man but by God, I know exactly what I’m capable of why can’t I be selfish with it. Why don’t I care about money or admiration or love of people who are not God? I have no idea how to answer those question and I know those questions aren’t of this world either.

Rhyme and Reason: I am human, I Get Angry #PrimeNYT

Bless Up from your feet to your head top

We go again,

As I write this I am probably the angriest I’ve been in a long time and it has nothing to do with me or what I have done but the way people act. It’s at the conversion of two distinctly terrible ideals people hold. The abuse that I have suffered is very very hard for me to to let go of or redistribute. These two things are the abuse of the law of use, and the terrible pride people take on when they’re in the wrong

The terrible way which people conduct themselves around me and their inability to act on the correct sentiment.

No one is perfect and that’s okay – God is working on all of us – what I can’t stand is people’s refusal to accept their own shortcomings in a timely manner, you have wronged someone in a very terrible and abhorrent way. What you need to do is say sorry immediately. Some people really have no respect. Not put on aires about your action and pretend you don’t know what you done was wrong. It was wrong, you hurt someone of meaning to you and the LEAST, Bare MINIMUM you can do is apologise. people will take months and years to fortify their spirit to apologise to me. Not even so I can feel good (as they would know it takes me a week to be completely over something) but so they can come to terms within themselves. Im actually sick to my stomach when I think of the further abuse of character this displays… I can be sure that person hasn’t changed…

what a terrible state of affairs…

The other is people will not respect what I have done for them. Put simply I have put in work for people and they were unable to respect the vision of greatness within themselves that I allowed to see. I let them see something in themselves that they did not know was there and they will turn and wrong me with the same energy I showed them they possess.

What a terrible state of affairs. How after 26 years am I able to trust people to my sacred inner circle when this is the terror I’ve suffered. No respect, it’s clear cut that these people had no respect for me now I have a personal decision to Make and it will change my life forever.

All I have ever wanted was for everyone around me to be great and fulfil their greatness and life’s purpose within them. All I have wanted. Should I feel shame that I have allowed myself to be used this way. Disrespected and tossed asunder. Why? Because I am good wholesome and friendly.

I have seen sin my whole life people treat others this way and really these things are water off my back but to know people with characters so gully will treat others this way.

Now here I am left with all the negative toxic, waste energy they bought back having to transform it into neutral energy because that’s who I am. I can’t see myself shouting down someone for bringing me such pain and chaos energy. I am left exposed this is the true test of my character, how I choose to proceed from here will show who I really am as a Man.

What an impasse, what a junction in life to be at. I’m so calm right now. I can’t see myself being any other way than how I really am which is my way

There’s a real equation I’m noticing here. Something I’ve never seen before. This really is a me thing and I need to be better on not taking on peoples chaos energy too much of it will turn me ill and I cannot stand for that, I must stand against those that transmit chaos energy; their negative energy is not something we need or want it is something we must give back

Stay composed and keep your neck up

A Thought on: How I rediscovered all of my talents -What you need to know to be productive

We go again

This is one of those things that if you read it, you’ll get it right away. If not I would have to spend two years mentoring you into understanding this statement.

you were born with the rudiment of all things in this world

I remember when I was told this, it was just the headline & it bode well for me, I was a simple animation student and this understanding transformed me into a multimedia fanatic; all I do is learn all things media and creative for multiple reason now; this was just the start of it.

Some people tell me I’m a genius because I understand Design Engineering, Thermodynamics, economics, philosophy and politics. I remember all my late nights book reading and studying on all these topics; so I can’t tell you what the truth is. What I do know is I can recall a great deal of this information and mesh the ideas into my favourite modes of study.

I studied animation so we learned multiple subjects and not just from the realm of design but psychology, storytelling, meaning, advertising, art history and how it relates to a working to industry standards; my course was just packed with all the essentials and fundamentals of all things relating to making good-classic content & if you saw that you won.

This is about the rudiment though all children are born with the rudiments depending on culture children will act out the memes and iconic stories of their home state to better understand their role and ideas are imprinted into them, consequently they drop or forget what it is to act outside their position; even further back children will Babel every phonemes in speech, yes every human is born with the rudiment to sound all languages; once they’re grown to speak they lose such abilities and keep all the relevant ones to their languages, who would have thought baby babel is real babel.

Many people have been told what they can and can’t get up to, some people believed those that told them that. A common strand I’ve seen in creatives is we ask questions and a common practice I’ve seen in entrepreneurs they didn’t believe anyone a common practice I’ve seen in geniuses they believed the were always right… These people were the defiant ones, disagreeable to the norm and conscious to own vision, the disruptors and the thinkers these people are usually the builders of economy.

Adopting any of those practices to question what you’ve been told, mores to question what you believed from what you were told. This will bode well for all, there’s a whole reconciliation process with understanding every lesson you were taught to aid you and not hinder you. However just before that there’s really one thing you have to be sure to know. Your skill level and threshold for greatness.

When I was younger I had to discover my limits, finding out there are only the limits you put on yourself I made sure I learned all I needed to, relevant and qualified subjects for that goal. Learning because you can because you’re young, because you’re you; because you’re great is a worthy ideal the nonstop growth and contest with your own self is.

Whether you find something new about yourself and shift your thinking; discover things you never knew you could do all steel your resolve to whatever you believed to be true with no distractions or what ifs.

what will it be?

The Principle of the Housing Problem in the Millennial World

We Go Again,

I begrudgingly listen to my peers on things they have to say concerning ways of life they did not invent and try to decipher what it truly means to them. Today I was told that a house and a car is, a stable future & a priority & a pillar of strength and manliness.

I don’t worry that this is how people think, I don’t care what people’s philosophies are because part of mine is do good for humans. I care what people are programmed to think do to a complex, in built, societal norm that was invented for people who can’t think for themselves to accept such if they can’t find a better way of thinking.

That’s what a societal norm is. It’s the dogma of the average and don’t want to think for themselves. Why do I think this pursuit for a house is part of this? Mainly because I get freaked out when people blurt our the same quote but paraphrase it. I can’t lie that’s incredibly scary to me and feel of sorts. I can’t judge and don’t want to take away something from someone who’s clearly not thinking for themselves and I have no real intention of replacing how they think.

As a leader one must lead in a way apart from people, the achievements of the average/the masses are footnotes. That’s not to make anyone feel a type of way I just don’t feel the same way as this it doesn’t mesh with my philosophical or economic belief.

It’s much like the always there conversation I had years ago. What wrong with taking a year out understanding what you want from you and executing that instead we collate the sacrifice of Youth to adult ideas that were only made in the past century and are not the type of ideas that were meant to last. We’re worried about the wrong things, not existentially but in principle.

There’s no life principle or in your history that says having a house or car or 10 acres of land can change you or your families life. If that were true those of us making the worlds top 20% wage minimum of $30,000 would have bought the land in our village by now.

A house doesn’t mean a better life for your children. Even building the economy doesn’t do that, if you want to be part of the money making machines just say so. But trapping yourself into debt and mortgage payment does not free yourself, isn’t the remark of a free person and doesn’t make you seem better to your kids. Especially if at any point a recession hit and you aren’t ready, your direct debit goes up and you’re back up grinding on your knees. Nothing is wrong with any of that if it’s truly what you want you’d do it with a smile and no one could critique you for it.

A Note On: Articulating Yourself is a Worthy Goal

We Go Again,

When I was 15 we had a family meeting. About me.

It was about my incapability to articulate myself, I said to them, (my family) that if I were to learn to start speaking my mind to them they would not like me very much.

Ten years later that reigned true, i reached a singularity within myself and was able to say what I feel whenever I felt it (at the most poignant time).

That was the single most important moment in my life (as it came to invoking the word) because learning to articulate myself as a human being meant I was not only facing inwards and asking myself tough questions about my reality and person but I’m able to do so when it calls for it from my family to my mentee and everyone else who needs it.

I’ve noticed whatever advice that was which I took on when it came to saying how I feel there are people older and younger who are unable to do so for whatever reason.

I guess I’m writing this to give whoever needs it permission because it is the best advice I took on. It took me 10 years and 100+ books, I feel something that it would not take anyone else that much time; just go for it. I don’t see a worthier goal to go for than learning about yourself and being able to articulate it to others.
