California Dreaming

California Dreaming

i use to zone out on this song way before i had ever set foot in California. i remember how big and fast it all was those first few years, 36 years ago. 21 years young. there had to be times when i thought i wouldn’t make it, times wh hien i strongly considered moving back “home” but i can no longer remember any of them. 3 months out of small town high school to the state capital for 2 years of tech training to get a technician’s diploma that i would take to pasadena a few months later. a one way greyhound bus ticket to stay with family and folks i grew up with that were already out here. by no means did i do it alone, but i freakin’ made it happen. the moments i stop to cherish where i am and celebrate where i’ve been while remembering the times and people of where i came from and those who assisted in getting me to such a wonderful now…

sometimes i ponder the places and things that i am capable of going and accomplishing and i get dizzy from excitement

A Life Of Minimal Compromise

you know how you may get this or do that or go there and all of a sudden nobody can tell you nothing? and you’re too busy living to be bothered with anybody’s mundane existence? you ever notice you are no longer moved by the simple problems of mortals and their primitive “human” belief systems? me neither… Read the rest of this entry »

Meaning Of Life

would you rather define the meaning of life, or have it defined for you? for a lot of you the answer is a part of your beliefs.

here alone at work my mind has the space to wander and i pondered that i and or we very well may have the power (via consciousness) to ultimately define the meaning, the result and the purpose of our existence. i even thought that with this gift of consciousness we may have the power to break away from any purpose that we may have been created for.

that means that even if there was a creator (not a god, as god implies submission) and this creator put us here for it’s purpose we may still have the capability to defy that purpose and create our own destiny.

there is a great leap from “creator” to “god” and many never consider that a “creator” may NOT rule over it’s creation and could be “wrong” unlike a “god.” and even so, why is it taken for granted that we could not override even god’s purpose for us?

An “Easy” Life Can Make You Soft

it took me a long while to get to and get use to having nothing to complain or bitch about. it was a lifestyle change. it ain’t easy keeping it easy, it takes work physically and mentally. sometimes i find temporary pleasure in exercising energy complaining, this helps me realize things i need to address. since i am at an age and accomplishment where i can have or create anything i want complaints quickly give way to action. very very few things in regards to me that i care about are left up to someone else, and if they are i have the knowledge of the system and capability to get to that source and get what i want or need out if it. all this may or may not be an accurate assessment, hell i could even be delusional. BUT this is how i feel my every waking morning. it’s what i believe and what’s with me going thru life. my overview and my outlook. how i feel about life and how i feel life treats me.

no doubt an “easy” life makes you soft. i remember my days of hustle and worry about jobs and where i was gonna live. woke up everyday with a major mission and the energy and drive that goes with such threats to one’s livelihood. if i had anything i had a definite goal. damn near every waking moment. for years. i got thru it. took about 2-3 years of being fairly secure to adjust. it was hard being a temp employee for so long to let my guard down and relax. still kind of hard to believe i am a permanent employee and the security that goes with that. but i did it. i worked for it and i earned it. but still it’s hard to believe and im sure i have not yet fully realized what it means. the life i have now vs 8 years ago or so. wow, it’s been 8 years of steady employment at various places. i remember when things clicked and i got on it. or in it. for whatever reason it felt different chasing them jobs. my attitude or sum’n changed. even when i had jobs i knew that were beneath me i knew it was part of building my work history.

Funk, Funky And The Origin of FUNK

James Brown is the Godfather of soul as the pioneer of music “on the one.” This music is “funky,” but not FUNK. Native American music is on the one, is that funk too? NO!! What Mr. Collins and Mr. Clinton did was have EVERY instrument “come down” on the one. JB “just” had an emphasis on the one and this music “swang up” from it. Bootsy has stated in video that what he and GC did was have every instrument play on the one and not only was that new, it created what a lot of people think FUNK is today. Mr. Collins and Mr. Clinton may be paying respect to JB and or even are humble in not realizing exactly what they did in Mothership Connection. AND funk is also not just the beat, its the philosophy behind that music and P-FUNK is the undeniable creator of the ideology behind what funk is today.

Like A Room Without A Roof…

harmony with everything around you does not mean being totally wimpy and completely going with any flow. i have an obligation to maintain and orchestrate my energy to attain not only proper balance, but to protect myself and steady the flow of energy around me. should external experience and or energy around me go awry the part i play is crucial is steadying things. with harmony comes responsibility

hell, being a part of anything brings responsibility. i learned that a long long time ago and have since pay very close attention to the things i am a “part” of. which means sometimes declaring that i am not a part and do not wish to be included as one. some things you almost have to be a part of and i constantly evaluate the value and cost of such associations. this helps me appreciate them more or realize it’s time to move on. nothing is unconditional. absolutely nothing.

What Is The Ultimate Goal?

i was thinking. what if a huge meteor smashes into the Earth and wipes out every trace of humanity and life. in regards to the big picture, what difference would it make?

what’s the point of all this? what is the ultimate goal? example: we fuss over climate change and the doom to come if we do nothing. but say we respond and we “save” the Earth and life goes on for millions of millennia, what is life going on for?

until i know that or develop a satisfying personal answer, i’m all but lost in the long term temporary of everything me, you and everything does

one step further may be that nothing universally really matters. what matters is completely subjective to each individual. no one or any institution can tell you what matters. they can only suggest. the responsibility is up to the individual to determine what his, our, and the ultimate goal is.
