A Life Of Minimal Compromise

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.

The Orchestration And Navigation Of My Existence

work day 5 of 9 straight. mr. scale said 210.6 this morning, which is as low as it’s been in years. i was thinking with so much going on that i was “kickin’ ass” as far as life is concerned. that may be the case, but then i thought it’s more like i’m in a harmony with a lot of things simultaneously. the orchestration and navigation of my existence with the movement of things and life. being very pleased with the who-what-where-how and when of the person that is me. realizing the “work” i’ve put in over decades to be the me i am now. i’m content but not satisfied, or satisfied and not content. inventorying my resources and capabilities i feel obligated to achieve. i feel that’s my way of “giving back” for all that i have received. achieve at the highest level that i possibly can and fully maximize my opportunity. “achieve” is arbitrary, subjective, ambiguous etc. and it really means just keep doing what i’m doing more and better and let the future determine what my achievements are.

I Obviously Am Not The Target Demographic

…and i don’t mind one bit. i absolutely LOVE getting and being older. so far my physical is holding up as my mental capacity operates with greater efficiency from experience. knowledge is such power.

not only being comfortable with but celebrating the things i no longer worry or care about. freeing up time and mindspace utilizing the ability to confidently skip that or this and focus on the more important.

everything is relative. subjective to the individual. as i got older i realized that what i think or how i feel about something supersedes just about what other’s say or think. that doesn’t mean i don’t take in consideration everything thought or viewpoint i hear, it means i evaluate and make a determination. take in what i like, while discarding what i don’t all the while continually processing all ideas.
