Something Serious Yo!

I am working on something highly relevant yall[via politics, society, important shit like that]. All I can leave you with for now is this shit I wrote the other night, and 2 dope ass songs w/ videos.

Something out there is stealing fire gathering mass amounts for selfish reasons pulling the very fabric that has patched and mended the only colors seen by a soul in solace for the tight grips of reality reflect hard upon the cold summers of a land where food and water are scarce. Something else lives in these lands on earth that stretches the vast valleys and the high mountains all the way to the depths of the deepest graves. Something too cold to hold yet too hot to touch, too bright to see, too fragrant to smell, and too salty to taste. Something always brings back the light when the darkness seems undefeated, a constant battle, a constant struggle, a war of wars, a heartless warrior against a heartfilled army, a neverending battle that affects all life all over. Blood spilled from wounds of greed, hearts broken from lust of flesh, minds ruined from unhealthy desires, the passing of time only gives notice to lives lost. The ways many go are uncertain. Every end marks another beginning. And today here and now we mark the eternal end to hate and the endless life of love.

There is a shit ton of doors in this place, seriously!

I will bet all of my 3 doors down albums for your Doors albums that you are in sight of a door. Ok well I dont have any 3 doors down cds but thats how confident I am. Doors are everywhere, such a huge part of life. Your car, your house, your job, and you can even relate them to philosophy. Today I went to Menards in search of a new door. I didn't find one but I did notice that there was a shit ton of doors. So I asked the guy, "how many doors yall got in stock here." He looked at me crazy and shook his head. He obviously hasn't been on inventory duty. I was still curious in my quest so I called Lowes to see how many they had. 3,704 doors. Then I called Home Depot. 1,410 doors. So I'm estimating that in the whole world there are about a shit ton of doors.

Doors have two working functions, to open and to close. A door can open to the beauty of a holy Cathedral with wonderful stained glass, families meditating in peace and the joyous harmonies of a choir. A man may be knocking at a door nervous and trembling with rose in hand awaiting his first date. A door may be the way you choose to go regarding a new buisness opportunity. A door may also slam close. Like when a man has had enough of his wifes lies and deceit that he storms away literally closing the door in her face. And also figuratively closing the door on the realtionship. A door might open to the dreadfulness of infidel, or to the horrors of poverty and a trashy mess. While at the same time a very heavy steal door with the number 8 is electronically shuting, closing off all contact an inmate will have with the outside world. Closing out all opportunity and life as he knows it.

Since my trip to Menards I have realized that there is a shit ton of doors in this place(life), seriously. Everyday as I open and shut many doors, I'm also realizing something else. That through constant change and growth, good decisions and bad decisions, good fortune and misfortune, doors are always closing. But when one door closes I can honestly say another opens.

Extra note: In 1954 Aldous Huxley published a book titled "The Doors of Perception." He got the title from William Blake: "If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite", A famous band then used the same title in coming up with their name "The Doors"

Serious Balance

All of my life I have been in search of many things.  Truth, purpose, meaning, love, ect.  Here lately those things have remained on my mind along with another.  A relevant blog to take this shit here to the next level.  I thought, what is really going on here?  What do the people need, what do they want from a blogger?   I have no idea what you want to read .  But just maybe there is a chance that what I found to be srsly hip and relevant in this cruel, mad, and beautiful world,  you might be able to relate to.

Today I begin with balance.  Balance is defined in the Websters New World Dictionary third college edition as:  A state of equilibrium or equipoise; equality in amount , weight, value, or importance, as between two things or the paths of a thing.  It is found in the St. Joseph, Atchison phone book only once under Balance Disorders.  Disorder can come about at anytime or anyplace and last for seconds as long as many years.  For years I was living in disorder, perhaps out of balance.  I recently posted something on facebook ending with WORK, DANCE, LOVE.  I coincidently  went to see a movie titled "Eat, Pray, Love."  The movie was fair.  If you like Julia Roberts you would like it.  What I realized besides Italy, India, and Bali would be great places to visit is, we all need balance.  Whether it's working, eating, dancing, praying, loving or something I didn't mention.  You must find time for them all.  You must find an equal amount of time for the things you want and the things you need.

I have no more insight  than a silly movie or two big signs in a music video i.e. WORK, DANCE.  But I can tell you that my life was in crazy disorder.  In my recent living I have re-discoverd many loves and found new interests.  My life is by no means perfect.  But one thing I have been able to grasp as of late is,  I am happier because I have been balancing the pains, struggles, and hard times of life with my loves and interests.  I guess it's as simple as Ying and Yang, up and down.  Whatever the deal is, however it goes just remember, take the trip to the beach but dont forget to feed the dog.
