Nine

All of life is illusion, and limitation is just a mental construct that can be altered at any time.

Eight

“Maybe if we are surrounded in beauty, someday we will become what we see.” – Jewel

Seven

You may pick and choose what your next experience will be on this magnificent, abundant playground of unlimited accessible knowledge. How will you live your next moment?

Six

“Now”. “Later”. “Then”. “Two days from now”. You are, you were, you will be. Everything is but a fleeting moment. If you aren't happy doing nothing, you'll never be happy doing anything.

Five

Meditate without knowing what your goal is – if you don’t focus on what you are doing, something will come to you. Don’t put words or names to your practice, as that limits your thought process and how your heart interprets the emotions and images coming through your head.

Four

Everything and anything is made of the same material -- energy. If my energy were not concentrated on these other energies, they would not exist. The moment I disappear, all around me disappears. I have complete control over what happens to me and what happens around me. Time is one grand illusion for my mind and body to keep track.

The moment I let go of a concept such as time I begin to relax and go with the flow. I end up being in the right place at the right time and the stress is totally and utterly relieved. Let time float around you but like water: you are a separate entity from time therefore do not have to associate with it. "Time" does not exist when you simply live in the moment.

Three

Write a song and only hum to it -- you can't write lyrics because what you want to express has no words.

Two

As much as language is a barrier when we can't understand each other, it is just as much a barrier when we do. The moment we acknowledge fact and meaning we no longer are the Source. We have good and bad, straight and gay, be and not be. The words I write now are useless to one who simply "exists". We may feel the emotions if we must and learn a great deal from them, but describing these emotions defeats the purpose.

One

Spontaneous, mischievous, all about the mysterious. Haven’t been through enough to know what I’m talking about. Don’t preach and teach if you haven’t lived and breathed it as your own. Don’t think it’s over in a flash, cause one flash and your life begins. Stop trying to sing on cue: it’s all about guess work.

Separation is key when you want to find yourself amongst the debris and chaos of the human race. My hair blows in the wind and it reminds me of your fairness. I have no experience to speak of, but does that mean I have no say in the matter?

The Premise

This blog now exists because I was given an ICBC notepad about a year ago for sending in a few ideas for their pulse polls. This may mean nothing to any of you, but I find that it's the most ridiculously awesome insignificant event ever. If it weren't for this happening, I don't think I would ever have started jotting down thoughts, mind babble, or overheard comments.

When I'm feeling down and out, this little notepad is my saviour. It picks me right back up because everything in there is a reflection of who I am in the present moment at any given time. The thoughts jotted down on these 2" x 3" lined pages represent my entire world -- a whole universe -- in one fleeting moment.

I hope you enjoy these. But if you don't ... I guess I really couldn't give a !@#$%.

LOVE!
