Reality is not very rigid

That’s it!…
…It’s all in the title.

Have a nice day. 🙂


Insight garnered from Billie Wilde.

Great videos you might not remember

I am eyeballing you

Some of you will know this about me: i’m old! Oh yes, and i’m too sexy for my shirt, plus a few other things, open up your fruitcakes! YEAH BABY YEAH!
Are you catching these references yet? If not, please pay attention. Geez, it’s like being at kindergarten with you youngsters all over the place!

First up, we have a video that, admitedly, simply doesn’t qualify as ‘great’, some might argue it’s not even ‘good’! So what on earth is it doing here, i hear you scream. Well, i thoroughly like the tongue-in-cheek attitude of our “singer” here, and they all seem to be having a bunch of fun, whilst making fun of people who thing they are just too hot…for anything. 🙂 Urban legend has it that the two bulky brothers in the band owned a gym where many models could be seen, and they decided to take a poke at them in this song and video.
Makes me a tad nostalgic of the era, which is the early 90’s, in case you didn’t know. Which you probably didn’t. Hence why i said it. 😉
In addition to the jaunty attitude of ‘Fred’, let’s call him that, we have the raunchy extras, which are probably largely responsible for the 20 million views this video is currently boasting.
I used to think of Right Said Fred as a one hit wonder, but a quick look into their bio shows me they sold 30 million records, had number 1 hits in dozens of countries, and even were the first band since The Beatles to go to number 1 in the US with their debut single, a record that was over 25 years old at the time of ‘Too Sexy’, which also won them some fancy awards.

Ladies & genitals, I’m too sexy for my shirt:

 

Next up, a classic that dates back all the way to 1986. Not only a great song, perfectly produced, the video has to be one of the best in music video history. That’s Peter Gabriel, by the way.

 

 

And, last for today’s selection (stay tuned for more!), we have something wildly unexpected from a special & brilliant actor, who is apparently a gifted dancer to boot.
Christopher Walken is indeed Fatboy Slim’s Weapon of Choice.

The Word

When everything’s wrong, it makes it right.
You’re never alone, you have it inside.
And i know sometimes we forget it,
But, i swear, it’s always been there.

Don’t know what you were
Expecting, when you don’t
Love yourself, you love
Nothing at all

When we are lost, it turns on the light.
When we feel empty, it makes it all bright.
And all we need to do is remember
That inside our chests is where the answers reside.

Don’t break it

You have my heart, ‘don’t break it’, i keep saying to myself.

The way you don’t

————-

I like the way you wear your clothes,
I like the way you don’t.

I like it when you say to me that,
If i will you won’t.

If you hadn’t found the best in me,
Would you be here today?

I’m just wondering,
Why you’re wandering away…

On the other side of gratitude

The Gratitude Guide

The Gratitude Guide, a handbook to more happiness in life, by Mr Jacob J Zylka-Zebracki

No râpé today, but still, some insights.

Finding gratitude in the ‘face of adversity’ may be the hardest thing right after self-acceptance, so-called “self-love”.
I have come to believe that it is our mission, in our best interest, in the best interest of life, of the universe’s thriving forces, in the best interest of joy & happiness, that we find gratitude, somehow, in the hard times. It implies ‘trusting the process’, trusting the Universe, trusting ‘God’. By the way, if the word ‘God’ bothers you, as i know it does some people, especially Atheists, then simply give it a meaning you can live with, something that doesn’t frustrate you or annoy you. It really is up to you what meaning you put in there. Have you pondered that maybe it bothers you because you don’t know what meaning to put into it? That you are disconnected from this Power, this Source of Everything, All of Consciousness combined? I don’t know, quite frankly, that’s your problem & for you to figure out. For your own sake, try to, though. Because we DO all come from the same Source, whether you want it or not, whether you believe it or not, and all Consciousness therefore comes from the same source too. And everything is connected to everything. There is nothing ‘separate’ in the Universe.

Back to our theme, though: gratitude when it’s not easy.

When we fail to find this gratitude, and i say this without judging those of us (including me) who do, we render ourselves victims of the circumstances. It means that a) we feel sorry for ourselves, b) we probably deny or don’t realize the part we played in attracting those said circumstances, and c) we are failing to trust the process, to trust God. Now i’m not a religious person, i’m neither Catholic nor Buddhist nor Jewish nor any of those things. I think that they are quite incompatible with spirituality. They are an easy trap to fall into, yes, but a trap nevertheless. Just my opinion, however, so don’t get too upset with me should you view things differently. Remember? Gratitude for our hardships! Oh, it is sooo hard to accept that people disagree with me on the obvious! SOOO hard! 😉

I have found, especially in the last few days, that by seeking gratitude, even for things that are, IMO, creating frustration for me, pretty f***ing strong frustration too (and i use those words deliberately…), that i create a learning and growth. I am only better off for it. What lies on the other side of gratitude is growth, and something a whole lot better than what i thought i was missing or lacking, or wanting. Ok, i still want to do those things, that hasn’t disappeared, but had i not gone through this frustration/problem and sought out the gratitude, i would have missed out on something a whole lot deeper & more beneficial to my Being & existence!

I’m not certain i can explain this further right now, so maybe try it. You can find meditations & advice on how to feel grateful quite easily should you want it. Search & you shall find. Try it & let me know how it went, why not? You can comment below, or email me from the contact section. 🙂

Be well, shine on, and let the world see & feel how friggin brilliant & lovely you are! 🙂

P.S. The book in the picture is a good place to start, and you can order it here (US) or here (UK/Europe). These are not affiliate links, the author is however a good friend and i hope to have him interviewed for this blog or for a podcast sometime this year.
I put this book in the ‘MUST READ in a lifetime’ category. Something that would be compulsory at school, were school about teaching & growing. Something every child & every adult should refer to on rough days or nights. Something we should all practice, for our own good, and that of all.

Poetry Day

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, a masterpiece by AC/DC

Today is official poetry day, here, on this blog. And because some of you tend to think that i’m perfect, or not technically human (hehe, yes, i am joking, but, yes, it happens), i thought i’d share with you some of my favorite lines. To shock you back into reality. 😉

You got problems in your life of love
You got a broken heart
He’s double dealin’ with your best friend
That’s when the teardrops start, fella
Pick up the phone
I’m here alone
Or make a social call
Come right in
Forget about him
We’ll have ourselves a ball

Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap

If you got a lady and you want her gone
But you ain’t got the guts
She keeps naggin’ at you night and day
Enough to drive ya nuts
Pick up the phone
Leave her alone
It’s time you made a stand
For a fee
I’m happy to be
Your back door man

Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap

Concrete shoes, cyanide, TNT
Done dirt cheap
Neckties, contracts, high voltage
Done dirt cheap

Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap.
——————————
We owe this sheer poetry, of course, to the Dead Poet, Bon Scott, and his crew, Angus & Malcolm Young. How anyone can not love AC/DC is beyond me. True genius at work.

Effort

Calm is on the other side of effort.


A few weeks ago, i started working with râpé (more on that in a separate post at some point – stay tuned). Every day has brought new insights. I will be posting one liners, such as today’s. Just remember that, like everything i write, it’s about my experience and isn’t a rule, because there are none with these things. It is up to you, and only you, to feel them resonate with you…or not, and to put them to good use…or not. 😉

My wish is that the things i share on this diary of mine may serve you, and serve you well. We all have a light to shine on the world, shamelessly. Intention is key.

May you be well, stay amazing. Shine.

Oh, and if you’d like to receive a few more of these insights, to see what they may bring you, then click the follow button, it’s there somewhere, and subscribe to the YouTube channel, where i post other things that may also be of interest to you.

Thanks for your support! 😁

How to get rid of intense or gory dreams

I’d like to share this simple tip with you because it’s just too good to keep to myself.

Recently, i started going to see a Tibetan doctor, who does acupuncture and various other things. Once in a while she also prescribes some chinese herbs.

She often asks me about my dreams. And, as we were moving things in the various organs, i started getting very vivid and, sometimes, gory dreams. Horrible, and exhausting. She says the liver needs detoxing, and the blood is making its way from the liver through the heart and this is what’s causing the dreams. Well, i have little opinion on that, all that matters to me is the result. And her tip works just like magic! Every time.

So, if you are having dreams that leave you exhausted, vivid or just plain horrible, do this every night just before bed : drink a small cup of hot water with a big spoon of apple cider vinegar, and a small spoon of honey.

The water doesn’t need to be super hot. But do make sure you are using proper apple cider vinegar : read the label. The same goes for the honey, although most honeys will say they are when in fact they are a mix of real honey and high fructose glucose syrup (not good!). Most vinegars are just coloured alcohol with some flavouring, beware & choose wisely.

So far, i have tried it four times, with success every time. In between i have sometimes forgotten or decided to try sleeping without it, and the wild insane dreams came back. Tried the vinegar trick again, and the dreams disappeared. Awesome!

I hope this will be useful to you. It’s much better than taking pills, i’m sure you’ll agree. 🙂

Oh, and Happy New year ! 🙂

May 2020 bring you health, joy and love, happiness and prosperity. Enjoy, and don’t forget…courage ! That’s where success is : in courage. If you have no clue what i’m talking about, look up ‘Dr Hawkins chart’, you’ll find it very interesting.

Kelly Howell’s Brainsync collection is currently 50% off

I don’t often promote much here, that’s not the purpose of this blog, which i think is not even monetized at all (at least i have never received a cent from it!).

For those of you following this blog or my YouTube channel, you might recall that i use special mp3s for meditation & before falling asleep. Well, i still use the same ones, and i feel a positive effect from them on my mood & on my dreams. I highly recommend them.

It just so happens that there is currently 50% off on the Brainsync website (CDs & MP3s) with promo code PEACE2019. I thought that was worth mentioning.

Which tracks do i use?

Morning : Awakening Kundalini (includes breathing exercises). Wakes me up & gets me in a good mood, motivated.

Night before sleep and whilst sleeping : Attract wealth #3 is designed to put you to sleep and works real well. I also use The Secret Universal Mind Meditations, they are very empowering and also great for sleeping.

Some of her tracks are great to listen to all day, on speakers, such as the relaxing Attract Love While Working, or Release & Let Go.

When you register on her website, you get a free track, and you’ll receive future promo codes automatically.

Remember to use them daily for best results.

Enjoy!
