Musings Episode 45: Show Some Cooperation, Life Isn’t Hard…

I haven’t watched TV in years, but lately I’ve been watching a lot of documentaries and what not on Netflix, mostly regarding animals.

One in particular most recently was about blue fin tuna, and the rising problem about them almost becoming extinct due to the mass craze for sushi.

Really when you think about it, this ties in a lot with cooperation. Cooperation from mankind, and the conflict of mankind with nature.

Nature has a kind of “autopilot” feature when it comes to things. In each animal there’s instilled a certain coding, where they kind of know what they have to carry out at birth. Sure, their parents teach them as you teach your kids – but they learn at a much faster rate, and they’re kicked from their parents “nest” at a much younger age. Long story short…the parents don’t ever have to worry about dishing out cash for a kid’s college education.

They learn independence.

They go on instinct, learn to fight, and have some type of “defence” mechanism built-in for predators or any kind of danger.

They’re taught to survive.

They have no currency, no government or laws of man, nothing but nature’s laws.

The same way we have families and groups of friends, animals have packs and groups they travel in.

The only difference is somehow, it seems more and more animals have their shit together more than humans…albeit humans being gifted with free will.

Humans are notated as being at the top of the food chain – we may not be as fast as the cheetah or as clever or sharp as the bluefin tuna, but we’re supposed to be the most intelligent creatures on earth.

In saying that – you seriously have to wonder why the heck the bluefin tuna is almost extinct – actually you don’t, it all boils down to one thing – a little thing called “moderation.”

I keep saying this – you can do anything, drink anything, and eat anything as long as it’s in moderation.

Moderation ties in a lot with cooperation.

There was a time before the global market burst open at the seams, where produce was only available in season, meat was only sold according to optimal growth and breeding times, and seafood was only available dependent upon how skilled the fisherman was.

It made things a little more “hard to get” but it allowed nature to run its course and “refresh” itself so to speak for another work cycle – the same way humans like to “refresh” themselves over the weekend or on their days off after working 40 odd hours a week.

Heck, there was even a time when farmers knew to let the land “rest” for a few years before laying seed again, and not growing just any old seed they’re paid to [for a short-term buck] in order to avoid long-term issues.

It was the purest form of cooperation in the most basic sense.

These days it seems that’s all gone out the window. Or going. Your choice of words.

Humans aren’t cooperating with nature, and what’s worse is nor are they cooperating with each other.

I’ve been at this lifestyle game for so long now that the same way a “gym rat” can’t comprehend why people don’t work out and stay fit, my brain can’t comprehend why it’s so hard for the general public to understand the gravity of the situation in regard to taking small steps to make life easier.

Let’s be clear here – I’m no activist. You won’t find me tree hugging or laying down in front of a wrecking ball to save a historical building – I’m not one for extremism…I don’t think it’s my job to save the world, and I don’t think it’s my job to shift each individual’s way of thinking. I offer the advice but it’s up to you to take it.

I do believe though that people could pick up some better habits, and maybe take care of mother nature the same way she takes care of us.

I do believe people could take small everyday steps to make the world a better place.

As for everyone’s way of thinking, I do believe that it doesn’t hurt to offer a new way of looking at things, hence why I started this blog along with my other two websites. I’m not here to shove anything down anyone’s throat – if I wanted that, I’d get into the stock market.

I will say people can do a bit better as human beings – the easiest way to do that is cooperation…the funny thing about cooperation is though, it’s gone about in all the wrong way today.

There’s a certain passive aggressiveness that’s developed in some countries in today’s modern time…cooperation is carried out when it shouldn’t be, people take answers and don’t ask questions, the art of time being taken out to relate to another person has practically gone out the window.

Life doesn’t have to be hard – in fact, life isn’t hard.

Time is changing. Energy is changing. You have animals on different levels of the food chain getting along with each other – you read about the stories in the news more and more.

Yet more and more humans are creating their own levels in the food chain amongst their own race – the human race.

Life isn’t hard.

There was a time when people cooperated, vulnerabilities were known but not exploited, and simple consideration and relation for your fellow-man was well-known.

There was also a time when people were barbaric, ruthless, exploitative, and complete disregard for another human being was considered normal all because of the color of someone else’s skin.

Now there’s the issues of right to self-defence. In my opinion? Everyone should have a right to self-defence.

Issues of sexuality, gender identification, etc, etc. In my opinion? What do I care? It’s your life, live it how you want to, just be fucking HAPPY.

Why must the majority dictate? Why can’t people agree to disagree?

Put simply, both the good and the bad sides have been seen with humans.

People have seen all aspects. Humans will always be ever evolving. There’s no changing that.

People have seen and documented enough history to learn that hate breeds hate, love takes courage, and war is a business – just like religion and politics.

Yet there’s a certain laziness that’s developed where although many have seen and learnt about these things, they still refuse to pull their own weight.

They want to state their own opinions, or one better they join the band wagon on other opinions, but rarely anymore do people take the time out to actually THINK on WHY their opinion is that – or why their thinking is that.

Sometimes, negativity is so…pointless. It’s such a waste of space, time and energy…but it still has a purpose.

I know that in order to know the good, you must know the bad. In order to know what you do want, you have to come to know what you don’t.

Negativity is a TOOL – that is supposed to be used for balance…but really, once you understand why it’s there, why use it? Life is all about going after that GOOD FEELING, creating, sharing.

Why is it there are so many blogs, articles, stories, tv shows, movies, etc, etc that focus on negative shit? It’s like a curtain – you just get wrapped up in that shit and then it’s hard to see the light…you lose both sight and track of your original purpose here on earth – to be HAPPY. To COOPERATE with your fellow-man.

I’m not saying tolerate shit – but seriously, people need to really assess situations and stand up for what’s RIGHT to stand up for, in their own lives. It’s about picking your battles – and not just picking the ones you think you can win.

It’s about principle. Consideration. Looking at all the angles….and like I keep saying, cooperation.

It’s no wonder the aliens fly right past us.

The animal kingdom has their shit together more than the human race.

This isn’t a rant…but this needs to be said. I just thoroughly believe that life doesn’t have to be hard.

People don’t have to be underpaid.

They don’t have to be bullied.

They don’t have to just “accept things” because that’s the way they are. I fucking hate that saying “it is what is is”…no. It’s NOT. It’s what YOU MAKE IT.

Stop striving for mediocrity.

Only go against the grain WHEN IT’S VALID.

Stop fussing over stupid shit.

Look at the bigger picture.

Focus on your own LIFE – reincarnation or not the one you’re living is the ONLY ONE YOU HAVE NOW.

and for fuck’s sake…stop giving each other such a hard time.

The human race is embarrassing themselves.

Again I say, this isn’t a rant…but this needs to be said.

We can be better.

People have intelligence.

They have governments, currency, law, infrastructure, medicine, modern technology, and FREE WILL…yet STILL they’re not using all this awesomeness EFFECTIVELY and to its maximum potential? You’ve gotta be kidding me.

As a race, humans have got to do better than that.

Come on…let’s tighten up.

Hope everyone’s having an awesome Sunday.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 25: Hate For No Reason…

So this weekend’s been kind of up and down for me…

il_570xN.345850943

At first I thought it was a joke, but now I’ve realized a person I once talked to, got along with, and really thought was cool people hates me.

Hates me.

….and I’ve no real idea why. I’ve considered just confronting them directly about it – but a few other friends of mine have advised against it. Yet I prefer getting to the bottom of things asap – no bars, no holding back, just straight talk. In situations like these it’s better to just shoot straight, get it over and done with.

Thing is, I don’t think the person has the guts to do it [openly state their hate] to my face. Which annoys me. If someone has the audacity to hate someone – and openly state it to others – but never directly say it to the person the negative energy is directed at – then that person is a coward.

tumblr_lr5852sqdo1qjm9bpo1_500

In relation to social matters, I have one main philosophy – hate for no reason, is unwarranted hostility. I don’t do well at all with unwarranted hostility. I find it unnecessary, time consuming, and a bad channel for energy. I tend to give everyone a decent level of respect, and have these mental “respect meters” in my head….if a person starts hating me for no reason though, or unnecessary negative experiences are thrown my way – the meter drops….and in turn so does my opinion of the person.

If it drops below a certain point, I no longer find it necessary for that person – that negative energy, to be in my life. Plain and simple.

This got me wanting to write a bit about why hate for no reason – or hate in general, is something that should really be avoided. Dislike is inevitable at times – especially if there are valid, legitimate reasons…but disliking/hating someone without reasoning, is probably the worst thing you can do to another human being – not to mention yourself.

I’d like to touch on this lightly, as getting dark really isn’t my cup of tea. If I go dark I’ll only do it if the situation really calls for it.

So – hate. Why do people do it…? Why does it exist…? Why is it more frequent than it’s opposite, love?

it’s far easier to hate – but it takes far more energy. Energy that easily turns into negative energy. With enough focus on hate at the end of the day someone could render themselves sick – just by the way their energy has been focused.

Negative energy is a waste of time and effort. While without it we would never know it’s opposite – positive energy – at the same time after getting familiarized with it you’d think people would prefer to avoid it. It can knock you off course, make you less focused, and consume your thoughts.

If you regularly work out, it can actually lower your immune system thus hindering workouts and performance. This is why fitness consultants advise people to try and eliminate as much stress as humanly possible from their day to day lives. Stress, anger, sadness, any kind of negative emotion that releases LDLs and VLDLs (lipoproteins that create “bad” cholesterol) more often, and contribute to excess cholesterol levels increasing. Stress has a tendency to release the “fight or flight” adrenaline used when in a dangerous situation – it pumps out adrenaline when it’s not really called for or needed.

fight-or-flight-watch-my-adrenaline-make-me-fast-or-violent

Stress and building up hate inside yourself isn’t the only thing that can actually transmit negative energy or “vibes” your way – but interestingly enough so can someone sitting and thinking on their resentment towards you. It’s what many people, both religious and non-religious, and some cultures recognize as the evil eye.

Remember that saying “if looks could kill?” it also ties in here. This is why some cultures believe if someone is having recent, frequent negative experiences go on in their lives it’s potentially from an outside source – a person or thing that has negative energy directed at them, thus causing chaos and confusion.

This is where silver owned signifying redemption or mercy, and talismans come in. Some also believe that any negative energy can be removed with the burning of sage, etc.

Energy, a lot of times is so overlooked. It’s what people in the 70’s called “vibes” – “you’re killing my vibe man,” really in effect meant one person could be making another feel a certain pulse of unwanted energy.

So when you think about it – this applies across the board.

When people are in romantic relationships, they feel desired, wanted, loved.

When people have good platonic friendships or great family support, they feel appreciated, needed, important.

….and when people are in conflicting situations or go through negative experiences they’re left feeling disrupted, uneasy, confused, on guard.

This is why it’s so important to filter or screen. Some people can, and will suck the life out of you. Chase Amante wrote a great article on this, about “psychic vampires.”

And really that’s what life is all about – going forward, getting better, and eliminating negative experiences.

When you walk down the street, you walk around or step over shit – not go through it. It’s as simple as that – anything negative in your life, you have complete control over whether or not to keep it there.

69080_628096550538686_117468084_n

So let go, and continue making you a better you. Just like I’m doing it’s better to kick the feeling out of your system rather than let it sit there. It just takes a little will power – hence why every single being on this earth was given free will. Humans and only humans – no thing else.

Stay sharp.
