Meddle

Nowadays meddling has become an issue, much more than in the past. The crazy thing about is though, we allow it, and we make it easy for others to get into our business. Now I’m not all for having a ton of secrets but everyone doesn’t need to know every aspect of my life. Many of us give out all this information freely without even realizing it. Once you start posting every little thing you are doing online, whether it is Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you are inviting total strangers into your everyday life. People are naturally nosey and want to know your business so they will follow what you do because it is like catching up on the latest gossip. I bet there is someone out there that knows your daily routine better than yourself, and I would put money on it that you have no idea who.

With the internet making an abundance of information easily accessible we really need to pay close attention to what we post and publish for all to see. If you care about your privacy at all it might be best to skip on “checking in” to every single place you visit, posting when you are off to work and then on your way back home. Honestly, if you really want to protect your privacy, keep all your information off the internet if you can. There are those of us, actually, most of us including bloggers that put our information out there so that we may reach and relate to our target crowds, or we have social media accounts to “stay in touch” with distant friends and family. Those who are actively engaged online needs to keep their security of information in mind because you never know who may be following you.

On a side note, don’t post anything to social media that you wouldn’t be willing to show your boss or future boss because let’s face it. More than likely they will do a google search on you to see what you are like if the job market is competitive enough. People are under this facade that they are invisible online, that they are protected and safe because they are just behind the keyboard. Well being behind the keyboard on a computer is just the same as posting flyers everywhere with your name on it, and it could cost you something great. Stay safe my friends. Don’t Meddle.

Don’t Coddle Me

Just don’t coddle me. I am not a child. I am a grown adult and I take responsibility for my actions, for my livelihood, and for my future. I am not offended at something I don’t agree with and I am not going to need the security Blanket that is known as safe spaces because come on people get real, grow up and realize its ok to not agree with someone and to get offended. we still need to treat each other with respect. Too many people are “triggered”, or so offended they lose all rational thought and argument and it becomes only my feelings matter and yours don’t because you said something I don’t like or didn’t want to hear. We are living in a time where emotion trumps logic and reason. This is how my two-year-old acts! It seems the system has failed to produce good contributing members to society and instead has given us coddled children that can’t handle being an adult. Not everyone deserves a medal for participation, and nobody is entitled to anything they didn’t work for. For those of us that don’t need to be coddled, keep going strong because hopefully just like the terrible twos this too shall pass. Rant over

Better

I just want something better. I want something better for my family. I don’t want just some ordinary 9 to 5 lifestyle. Life is too short for that. I want to always be improving my standard of living and I don’t want to slide back and I sure as hell don’t want to stagnate. The ordinary robs us of our true joy, we are not some machine that is supposed to repeat the same thing over and over. We are meant to have extraordinary lives. To experience the greatness and beauty this world has to offer.

It doesn’t help that we was media that only wants to report what is popular, what ultimately will make them the most money no matter hoeuch they have to exaggerate and twist the truth. It makes me sick, I just want to leave it all behind. People are blinded by media, and their view forced on us, and it turns us against each other. It causes us to divide and causes strife. I am heartbroken for my daughter that this is the work she is coming into. Thinking about it drive Spike in my heart. I just hope that she can be better than the rest of the world and have a positive impact in our society. Rant over.

Territory isn’t what you think.

Territory
We as humans like to make nests so to speak. We find a place we like, buy some land (or rent) and we settle down. We then become defensive if someone threatens to encroach in our space. This applies to personal space as well when we are outside of our territory. We like to mark our territory with property lines, fencing, and the such. Our government and all the governments in the world do it as well will country borders, state borders, etc… We see our territory as a place where we are in control, where we can feel safe. Is this how we are supposed to live? Is this what nature intended? I believe it isn’t.

Our territory has become our prison. We force ourselves to live in a confined area that we call home. Now we may enjoy our home and people find that they can get away and be free inside their home and that is all fine and dandy but why can’t we fee free outside the home? It’s not our territory. Why is it when we want to travel outside of the country we need a passport and visas to enter other countries? Our travel is restricted by these invisible lines on a map controlled by people who what to control us. These lines do not exist physically to keep us in or out of a certain area. The earth is our territory, as humans, we should have every right to explore our planet that we live on. Why do countries get to decide that we can’t go somewhere because we don’t have a paper saying who we are? I know security is an issue, but if someone who wants to cause harm wants to go somewhere they will find a way to get in no matter what safeguards are in place.

I’m not suggesting that we get rid of passports or not keep track of who is going where, but why do the governments make it so hard for us to travel to experience the rest of the world? Why just because we are from a certain country we cannot go a visit another country? Why is every government concerned with being the best on their own, or wanting to control everything? I’m not suggesting a single world government but I am begging the question when are governments going to realize if we all work together we can improve humanity all across the globe. We as humans are selfish and we only want to look out for our interest, what will improve my territory, what will I benefit from this. What we don’t understand is our territory is only temporarily ours, but it always belongs to the earth. The earth will always reclaim its territory in time as long as we don’t destroy it first. We can save our planet if we work together and not let borders get in the way.

Sorry for being all over the place today, just writing as I think.

My Favorite Color

Purple. Purple is my favorite color. Actually, it is one of my favorite colors. My other favorite colors are emerald green, red, black and white. Something about purple makes it stand out above the rest, though. It reminds me of royalty, of something luxurious, and something exciting, but not overly excited like I associate with yellow. I also relate “psychic” energy with purple. I want to focus on the psychic portion of this color. I don’t just mean psychic as a fortune telling power, but also with psionic abilities like moving things with your mind, sci-fi abilities to get into someone else’s head, like mind reading or mind corruption. This ability set interests me a great deal because we don’t know 100% if this is impossible because we only utilize our brain in a small percentage. My fascination with psychic abilities started with the game StarCraft. The Protoss race in the game is centered on this “energy” that I closely relate to psychic energy. There are characters that create an electric storm with their psychic ability. They are also able to drain “energy” from opponents and fuse with another similar character to create a different unit that is made of pure energy. Anyways these were my favorite units to use against my enemy. Back to reality, it has left me wondering how much more capable our minds are if we were able to use a higher percentage of our brain. Is it like the movie limitless where we end up as a mass of pure energy and can get into computers and networks and the such? Or is it more like psychic abilities that we can manipulate the world around us only using our mind. Maybe we just become super smart or hyper-aware of everything. Or just maybe we are driven to the point of insanity because we can’t handle what a “more powerful” brain gives us. Maybe some insane people use more of their brain and they can’t find a way to cope with their abilities. They are seen as insane to us because what they are experiencing is something that “normal” people can’t relate to. Like if it doesn’t happen to the majority of people then it isn’t normal. Maybe this thought is wrong.

Whatever is the reality with insane people I hope that they find comfort in something and that they are able to cope. Just so we are clear these are just thoughts, not rational ideas for defining anything, nothing I say has any particular bearing and may be proven wrong quick and easy and I welcome any proof against what I am saying and also proof to support what I am saying.

A mind is a powerful tool. When people use it great things can be done. Just look at the world around us. I have thoughts on a daily basis that put me in awe of the power of human intelligence, like how did so-in-so figure out how to make the internet, or how did people figure we can transmit data wirelessly or even voice wirelessly.  Many other thoughts like these pass my mind daily and it makes me appreciate what gift we all have, the gift of a powerful brain that works with such complexity and that can solve almost any problem. I never want to stop learning.

Ordinary

Ordinary bores me. It is a dull hum in a busy world. What I would do to not have an ordinary life! If you want to change you have to do something about it. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Most of us meet this definition. We cry and complain about not having this awesome life but we don’t do anything to change our situation. Our heart wants these desires to come true but if we don’t make a logical path to those desires and follow through with action all we are doing is dreaming about one life, and living another. Unless you have tried and keep trying you have no right to complain. Why should anyone feel sorry for anyone not living how they want to live without putting any effort at all? We shouldn’t. If you want something, work for it, and depending on what it is you may have to put a ridiculous amount of effort into it, or it may be something that can come easily to you. Everything has a cost to it whether it is time, money, friends, family or whatever and if you are not willing to pay then you need to deal with it. Life isn’t easy, and it isn’t meant to be. The most fulfillment you can get from something usually comes from the things you struggled with the most but overcame. We are not entitled to anything we did not work for. Okay, rant over.
