Change Is Good!
    #1797898 - 08/10/03 12:56 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Change is natural. Change is healthy, I believe it is the reason we are here in the first place. Evoulution.

How can we, at some point and time, deicde that everything is the way it should be, and that our lives are situated, a complete whole? There is always some new experience out there to seize, always something new to try. Rooting ourselves down in one spot is the biggest problem we have, I think. People develop habits, rituals, set patterns of thinking and behaviour. Why? It is comfortable. There is nothing to risk..

People become so attached to everything, and this is where our problems develop. It is hard to go with the flow if your food HAS to be of a certain task, if your music HAS to be of a certain genre, if your car HAS to have a certain manufacturer, if your aquaintances HAVE to be of a certain religion, class, or race, if everything you expereince HAS to fit in with your solid belief of who you are, what you believe in, and what you do.
Fuck that. That is egotistical, elitist, meet my fucking standards or else bullshit. How many people do I hang out with that are intelligent, open-minded, listen to speed and melodic death metal and trance music, smoke marijuana and do mushrooms, play bass guitar (or, at least, a rock instrument), and have more or less accumulated the same thoughts and beliefs? One that I have met (apparently Shroomism fits the bill, eh?) So, do I get upset when in company of others that aren't so similar, or even of others that don't even fit a much broader similiarity scope? Everyone has something to offer? there is always at least one thing you can learn from every person on Earth.

Every moment and expereince in time has never been the same as any other. Some variables are always going to be different. Why should we fear something new? Why should we fear meeting someone new? i don't want to be the old man in his dusty house, never married, and now afraid to go outside his door, no friends to share this life with. I don't need to feel uncomfortable walking down the city street, or sitting around the dinner table that has new faces around it.

There are a lot of things I would never experience, because of these fears, these security issues. Fuck that shit! I can be who I want to be, and do what I want to do without needing to worry about what I look like, what other people will think about me, etc. I don't need to feel uncomfortable around people I don't know, or people, for dumb reasons, that I'm worried will think certain things about me.

When I am not worried about that bullshit, when I feel comfortable; I can "feel the power", so to speak. I am being who I truly want to be, and it feels great, it is more effective, besides. It is sort of ironic, actually. One who is so worried about the way they look and what others think usually leave an impression as such, or at least an impression of someone that isn't really who they are (think about corrupt politicans, that have the public side of them, and their secret, evil hidden side.. you can look at them and tell that something else is going on, that there is that other side of them...).

Not worrying about that shit and being yourself will usually keep the true you impressed into others heads, and since you are just being you, who you want to be is who you want to be. It feels great.

Face life's challenges and obstacles with confidence and optimism. Be comfortable being yourself. Try something new. And remember, change is like a wave; it will either grind you under or carry you far, on the ride of your life. The choice is yours....
Peace.

"Everyone has something to offer? there is always at least one thing you can learn from every person on Earth."

Another thing I learned recently, and very true. Just sometimes, some people are so full of BS you wonder if they would ever say anything intelegent(sp lolol)

And it isn't even necessarily that they have to say something intelligent to learn something from them... Just that you can use who they are or the idea that runs behind them to fill in the total picture of this system a little more, I guess. Or at the very least, they will get you thinking about something that leads to other thoughts, and so on..
Peace.

Ahh yes, we think alike on this matter. But only recently did I begin thinking like this. Sad, but I used to drift through life not taking notice of this stuff.

Don't be sad, man, 90% of people don't realize what me and you have come to realize. Too bad for them, living there life with no real cental control....
Peace.
