My brother was called a ruffian. A good-for-nothing. A never-amount-to-anything type with exacerbated encounters. Brows furrowed in a frenzy & eyes averted with a dart-like speed whenever he walked in the room.
“The most difficult thing for men is to process emotions through feeling alone, without the encumbrance of thinking through & analyzing those feelings." A fiction, short story. On matters of life, love & understanding.
It’s wise to be cautious & considerate, it’s unwise to fall victim to the symptoms of chronic fear & fear-mongering.
This is a means to acknowledge the all-too-human desire to express that which may be wholly undesirable, in a way that is conducive to a life well lived out of consideration for others & the Duality perceived.
I beseech those who come across this reflection to glean meaning rather than naivety. To recognize the strengths of choosing Optimism, Purity & Peace; rather than perceiving vulnerable, uncompromisable detriment.
Failure is a temporary state. Feeling like a failure consistently is a chronic failure of the mind. It’s like holding on to pain long after a wound has healed
The irony of having written such a well thought out & impromptu post about being consistent & pushing through the struggles with keeping up with a daily challenge...
It’s been another long day. I ended up spending too much time absorbed in other content, mixing & mastering a song, tweaking some promo material for my upcoming event, going through footage from the last one...
Not much in particular on the mind tonight. It’s been a long day. Productive I would say. So perhaps I shall share with you all a “Productive Day in the Life of Mr. Wildenfree”.
The path that seems it would provide me with the utmost fulfillment, in some ways, seems to be the path in which I am quickest to erect a multitude of barriers.
What are you brooding over, silly? There's so much beauty in front of you. So much life. So many seeds you've planted that you have yet to reap!
Meditation, Visualization, & Affirmations. I certainly believe the process to self-mastery & overcoming one's own mind is quintessential for a life of abundance & deliberate manifestation.
And there it is again. The destination that is always available to me... The territory of depressive tendencies & existential fabricated enemies of my peace of mind.
I give all due credit to scientists in this day & age. They work off of a force that's so beyond surface level existence. The essence that compels scientists forward is so fascinating to me.
I've been reading "The Will To Change" by Bell Hooks, & shockingly, it's been crumbling the world view that I had believed I had to get accustomed to for so long, just to be a respected part of this society — Patriarchy.
There is a beauty to stillness, when you’re fully immersed. A beauty to this turbulence, the whirling of this world. Brilliantly distinct, yet ebbing & flowing in & out of coalescence with one another.
I know nothing. I've never known anything. I thought I did, & I knew I didn't. I feigned I did, still knowing nothing. You may have thought I knew something, but I honestly don't.
500 words a day in the month of July. I guess that's what I'll write. Haven't thought about how I should nurture the style, I could perhaps just let it be what it will be for a while.
Today I put the finishing touches on "February Flows", the album. This month's blog post will serve as a retrospective to that experience, and as an overall update of what's been happening lately!
September 25, 2012. Kendrick Lamar & the TDE family made their way to Tallahassee, FL for a performance at "The Moon"... and my life changed forever.
I am peculiar & unashamed. I am not normal — & I never tried to be... I'm living my life so very Wildenfree.
