I had another audition today and so please keep fingers and toes crossed. No I'm not saying anymore, OR telling you which major film I am working on this week. ;)
Here's the meaty part; zombies have one thing right... brains are delicious. I'm talking about the wild sparking rush in your brain when it gets a boner. A brain boner. (I'm patenting this phrase) The excitement when a connection is revealed between two brains, knowing each is equally stimulated by the other. Sounds like sex. Sounds good.
Cuz lets face it: an intellectual conversation can be sexier than any muscled-up Spartan walking by. So, for today, and having a million and one things to do, we all need to take some time and refocus, rebalance, and rejuvenate our brains. Six months into the new year, transformation is well underway, with resolutions we want to stick to... so, how are ya doin with that weight loss... that personal goal at work... getting that car...? Are you still working towards achieving some good shit? Did you throw in the towel yet? I almost did with a lot of things too. Or like, decide to quit or "forget" about what you said you were going to do?
If none of this sounds familiar, than you probably aren't living.
As we begin to ponder these things, it would seem simple in context and the answers easy to communicate. Totally NOT me...
Of course the reason why I am writing this is because I need to refocus on my goals, and I'm sure as hell know I'm not alone on this. I see my own evolution as each day unfolds. The main point is this: It all begins and ends...in your mind.
Break it down, Ghandi... Everything entering your brain begins with a thought. The challenge -- deciding what you will do with that thought... you have to determine if the thought entering your mind is one you should entertain based on the foreseeable outcome. This is where you will be able to determine if you need to refocus or clear your mind. Implying this will help make sure you are being productive and growing, and allow you to determine if in fact you are achieving your goals.
It's a good idea to carve out some time in your day to just do fuckall. Nothing. Nada. Nope, no tv no nuthin. Why? Because our brains are jumbled enough as it is, and it needs a break. A runner needs a break, it is impossible to keep running without dying. So, give your mind a break so it can take a breather. Just because you're busy doesn't mean you are being productive for yourself.
Take a mental look at yourself. Inside and out. Do you like what you see? Are your activities conducive to your dreams? Get your shit together. Don't forget about yourself.
Pay attention to what you allow yourself to sink in. It's really important to recognize what you are entertaining like reading, music, friends, etc. Whatever comes out of you from all that stuff, should coincide with your dreams and visions.
Here's the deal. This works. As you pay more attention in these areas of your person reorganization, you will develop a more defined vision, gain more clarity, which will lead to reclaiming your passion and self-value. Having a mind free of shit piles helps progress towards refocusing and getting your sexy brain in the right spot.
And hey guess what... it works. Please, for fucksake, you only get this version of yourself once, I can't tell you what I will be in the next life dimension, but in a karmic sense, because I have taken the time and effort to reorganize my brain, the whole clarity and clear-seeing ideas really DO happen. I can't remember the last time I cried out of sadness and lost in the dark. Getting out of the tunnel was the hardest battle against myself I have faced yet. It's a battle worth fighting.
Do yourself a favor. Stop. Look. Listen. Organize. Love. Repeat. Share. <3ADC
