PRRRR like a cat.

You are a creative creature.


Everything you perceive

is your OWN individual creation.

What you perceive
is based upon 
what you believe
and visa versa.

The process is as follows:

Project.
Reflect.
Relate.
React.
Repeat.

You project through expression.
You reflect through experience.
You relate through expansion.
You react through exchange.

This process

is how you perceive
your seeming self,
and how you create
your seeming collectives.


You are simply energy.
Nothing more. Nothing less.

And we are Space Monkey.

Dis Discomfort

If we can’t be comfortable with what we perceive now, how can we be certain that we’ll EVER be comfortable? We can’t. But “discomfort” need not be perceived as a “negative” feeling. There is value in discomfort, just like any other feeling.

And who is to say that “value” is even required?

Consider that perhaps NOTHING is required. Perhaps it is all entirely optional. Which means there’s NO REASON not to feel comfortable right now, and in every moment.

Trolls & Hecklers

When you get a heckler;

when someone

seemingly opposes

what you have to say,
you can think
“oh, shit, I’ve got a heckler”
or you can think
“how amazing is it

that I find myself
in a position
where someone actually
wants to HECKLE me?”

Thank you, heckler.

Once you come to grips
with your hecklers,
once you ALLOW
that they exist,
you can actually
USE THEM as a source

for inspiration and growth.

But if you 
immediately
shut down
block
turn away
ignore
forget about
your hecklers,

you deny yourself

all kinds of possibilities.

Love your hecklers
as you would love yourself.

This makes you

an even BIGGER narcissist.

Go you.

INFP insignificance

I am a seemingly insignificant human being leading a seemingly unremarkable life. This could easily fill me with ennui, discomfort and anxiety, until I realize that this is precisely how this seeming life is structured and exactly how I am meant to perceive myself. The thought that I should be anything OTHER than this is JUST a thought, which I may either subscribe to or not subscribe to.

There is nothing and/or no one MAKING me do anything. These are just perceptions that I entertain, and that entertain me, either in a positive or negative way.

In this knowing, I AM significant AND remarkable, in complete control of my destiny and my feelings.

I am simply going with the flow, for I AM the flow, and everything it seemingly contains or does not contain.

I am Space Monkey.

Memo To The Future

Hello, Future.

Some day you’ll stumble across this, and you will say “what the fuck?”
You will read what we have to tell you and it will seem oddly prophetic.
This is because the future bleeds into the past. But you forget.

We forget.

So as we write this, we know damn well that we will have forgotten it by tomorrow. These words will seemingly cease to exist, just like the fading details in those vague memories of this life we seem to have lived.

We forget.
We will have forgotten.
We have forgotten already.

We get the sense that the future is writing these words,
because it doesn’t want to forget any longer.

So it is working backwards, just like it always does.
And the past seems to be working forward.

But all of us are simultaneous, you see.

And we’re having a good laugh about this right now.
And yesterday. And tomorrow.

Inside and outside of time,
we are Space Monkey.

And you are only just figuring this out.
Though you had it figured out all along.

We are Space Monkey.

My Seeming World

You and I live in two separate worlds.
You live in the “real” world.
I live in this “seeming” world.
I seem to live.
You seem to be certain.
You see your world as concrete.
I see my world as imagination.
You see your world as unyielding.
I see my world as filled with possibility.
You see your world as uncontrollable.
I see my world as a projection of me.
I believe that
if I can control me,
I can control my world.

I don’t seem to be doing that just yet.
But I imagine that there’s a reason for it.
This is what I have chosen.
This is what I imagine.
To live in a world that seems out of control.
But isn’t.

Hand-free gloves.

Think of the possibilities.

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on TumblrShare on LinkedInEmail this to someoneShare on Google+

Clever or curious?

If you had to choose
between clever and curious,
which would you be?

One seems more intelligent.
The other seems more intuitive.

One seems more masculine.
The other seems more feminine.

One seems more egotistical.
The other seems more empathic.

One seems more conscientious.
The other seems more creative.

One seems respectable.
The other seems weird.

One seems yin. The other yang.

Clever people tend to believe
that they’re also curious.

Curious people tend to believe
that they’re never clever enough.

We question EVERYTHING
then feel like a jerk for doing so.

Curious.

Best in Me

Every day I wake up
with one simple wish:

“May the best in me
bring out the best in you.”

May I remain
mindfully non-judgmental
of all this day has to offer,
trusting that every experience
makes me a more complete,
more realized individual,
and that the same rule applies
to everyone and everything
I shall perceive on this day.

My second wish
is the same as the first:

“May the best in you
bring out the best in me.”

Now “you” is obviously
the you who is reading this,
but it is also the greater you,
which is the universe
in which we both live.

It is the most basic of human truths
that our own health and happiness
is inextricably intertwined
with the health and happiness
of those we surround ourselves with.

Who and what
we surround ourselves with
is not an accident,
but a choice,
so we must respect
each other,
the world we share,
and the relationships we nurture,
lest we disrespect ourselves.

I realize that
the best in me
is you,
and that
the best in you
is me
for what are we
but our own perceptions?

This means that
the worst in you is ALSO me,
for only I can decide
how I feel in any given moment.

This means I have great power.
This means YOU have great power.
And responsibility.

The words we use,
the actions we take,
the examples we set,
these are not separate,
rather they all act
TOGETHER
in our shared experience.

My wish
is to realize
and remember this,
EVERY SINGLE DAY.

This can only be achieved
by bringing forth the best in me,
EVERY SINGLE DAY.

I believe in
“as above so below,”
which simply means
that when were are
true to ourselves,
our world becomes
a friendlier,
more perfect place.

And we all prosper.

I will not lie to myself.
I will not choose to believe
that my fate is in the hands
of those I perceive as others.

Believing in this way,
there are no others.
We are all after the same thing,
the pursuit of happiness,
but we help each other out
not just with common goals,
but by developing and nurturing
our own unique gifts.

We must respect
each other as individuals.

We must HELP
each other as individuals.

But we must not let
our quest for individuality
impose upon others.

Though we must
help each other
develop our
unique individual gifts,
we must not
EXPECT each other
to help.

That would be imposing
our will upon another,
which is ultimately
of no use to anyone.

We need be driven
by curiosity and good will,
not by intelligence,
which is always debatable.

I know NO BETTER than you.
You know NO BETTER than me.

Until we BOTH understand this,
we are acting upon our egos only.

In this manner,
we do ourselves a disservice.

We are so much more than our egos.

So every day I ask myself
“what is the best in me?”
and I wonder
“what is the best in you?”
and I feel grateful
for yet another opportunity
to find out.

Why you are here:

You find yourself here
for a very specific reason,
and that …
is to find yourself here.

You are not here to learn.
You do not have to search,
seek or solve.

You have all the solutions already.

Once you realize this …
congratulations …
YOU HAVE FOUND YOURSELF.

You basically BUILT this sandbox.

So you may continue to dig.
You may continue to pour sand
where sand seems not to belong.
You may continue to struggle.

But know that ALL
of these potential experiences …
were lovingly concealed …
BY YOU.

They have been here ALL ALONG.

And no matter what you choose,
no matter how you act,
no matter what happens …

… this was ALWAYS in the cards.

You created the deck,
and you continue to shuffle,
and you continue to bluff …

… but you are finding it
increasingly difficult to deny …

THE TRUMP CARD.

This potential seems to make no sense.
Even less sense than life itself.

That’s why you imagined this joker
when you assembled your deck.

You knew that eventually
you might need
to remind yourself
that life is only a game.

Now you find yourself here
for a very specific reason
and that is …
to find yourself here.

What shall we play next?

We are Space Monkey.
