Your First External Influence

A stress-ball design Highdea – any thoughts?

I think it was probably one of the first few times I had truly gotten HIGH that I came up with a design idea for a stress ball. The stress ball is composed of either a wood or metal core (maybe a...

Who were we before we saw our reflections?

I googled this, because I figure this is probably the best thing to do before assuming I’ve been the first to ask the question. Likely, I haven’t, of course. Though… the ensuing...

Our Medium

I wanted to share the flow that came over me this morning. Any inspired responses are more than welcome. I love hearing others’ stream of consciousness. The ocean is never still. Never on the...

God's Debris

Have you read it yet? (Not sure how to include a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God’s_Debris ) If you haven’t, I would strongly suggest doing so. Even if you just read the description...

Tibetan Meditation, Glossalalia & The Brain.

Something grand that I read today in “Fringe-ology…” by Steve Volk. If you have a moment, it’s a slightly long excerpt but definitely worth the read if you’re interested:...

Musings on Right Vs. Wrong and Survival

For years I have had this recurring thought. I’d like to see what you think/what it inspires: How can we be so sure about anything? What we consider Right is only Right because that is how it...

WAKE UP

WAKE UP. In the midst of frustration and the anxiety that incongruous epiphanies bring, you’re alive and we’re walking, somewhere unlike here – bare – wholly void of...

Your Voice Is Beautiful

I wanted to create this thread as an alternate form of inspiration for those out there who value the power of the spoken word. We all have something to say, whether it be an original thought or piece...

Pro-Life or Pro-Choice?

I wanted to approach a topic with you guys: Abortion. Now, in order to keep things on a progressive track, you’re more than welcome to explain your beliefs and your position on the topic and any...

"You Are Here"

I had this thought and wanted to share it: Does it feel like your life is moving without pause while you sit in the background watching it pass by? Good. Acknowledge this as a life-changing moment....

Daily Mantra – "My Declaration of Self Esteem"

I had this curiosity take hold, leaving me to wonder if any of you have a daily mantra you read/meditate on or a mantra that applies to a part of your life that you feel needs guidance? What is it,...

The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

This is an excerpt from Neil Gaiman’s book “The Ocean at the End of the Lane”. The way he explains the universe was very intriguing. “The second thing I thought was that I knew...

Third-Eye Visions?

I don’t know how to lead into this so I think I’m just going to try to fall right into it: When I’m at work, sitting at my desk and wandering mindlessly on the internet – or,...

Landscapes of a Past Life

I walk within and outside of this landscape, unheard and unfelt, Been there, done that, and somewhere far away from here I’ve felt you. It was winding, a sensation below the waves of the...

Universal Traveller

Step outside and breathe the crisp night air; Expand your lungs and focus on the fullness; The smooth pulse of your heart as you gaze into the sky, full of stars and different planets. Maybe an...

I think you need a smile!

How many times have you sat out on the deck Getting wrecked And waiting to collect a cheque Knowing that’s as good as life is ever gonna get… Pool in the backyard Where the kids play...

Change the Body to Change the Mind.

I see the quote in a lot of different places, “To change your body, you must first change your mind.” During lunch I was thinking about it and I started to wonder: If there is one thing we...

If abortions were eliminated.

So, I was walking my dog around the yard this morning so he could use the bathroom, and I had this sort of “shower thought” about how the elimination of abortion would affect our...

There's no need to be ashamed of your tears.

There are a lot of reasons to cry, and I’m sure that you could think of a few just by reading that statement. But, in today’s day and age, tears have grown to show a sign of weakness in...

(An Aid) Free Yourself by Knowing the "You"

It is an irrefutable fact that you are human. You possess the ability to formulate thoughts, and can further that ability by observing them and determining which of those thoughts are, in fact, true...

The Room of Your Mind

You are who you are until you’re eventually not. Whether it’s because you didn’t care or simply forgot. Nonetheless, you are yours and ultimately yours alone. So why not make that...

420 Monthly Goody Box

I just stumbled upon this today. http://420goodybox.com/ Has anyone here gone through and tried this box before? It looks pretty dope. How punny. I’m thinking about doing it, and I will gladly...

Happy life, Long life, or More Income?

We hear variations of it all of the time, “The point is to live as happy of a life as possible, as comfortable as possible.” Yet, if you think about it: Over the past 50 years, countless...

The Letter Q

I was thinking the other night about how, if people were provided with the entire alphabet and given the option of choosing a letter (e.g. A Keychain/trinket with a letter on it), there’s a...

Experimental Meditation

I’m the type of person who’s really into how the mind works and figuring out to what limits it can soar. Of course, with meditation being a practice fully dependent on personal perception...

Who were you before you met you?

I know there some here who have progressed rapidly through the realms of higher consciousness, grasping easily onto the abstract ideas spun up and guiding willingly those of us who get lost in our own...
