Good day, fellow humans! This is my first post in my first blog, and so shall serve as an introduction of sorts.
I AM a long-term wave rider, surfer of the ever-shifting tides of change. I ride waves of pure energy. Most of these waves are those found breaking on the shores of our planet’s oceans. However, more recently, I’ve been riding some other types of waves, emanating from a very different Source. It’s been quite a ride so far!
Anyway, this little blog is my way of communicating my current experiences on this wild ride to family, friends, and others who may have an interest in either the outer manifestations of my personal life; how to arrive at a custom-tailored version of your own personal dream life; ‘what the heck is going on in this crazy world?’ — or all of the above! The style shall be a bit of a mix of personal anecdotes from my life in the tropics (maybe some accompanied by photos and short videos), commentaries on specific videos and/or articles and/or other blog posts, and musings and reflections on themes and questions that arise from these, or those same that pop up in my daily life or in my personal communications with others, that I feel could use some . . . . attention.
As a reference of sorts, the unusual style I have chosen for this blog can be found in a book that some of you may be familiar with (I’m dating myself now, you know . . .) called ‘Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance‘ by Robert M. Pirsig. This classic from the 70’s (not read by me until well into the 80’s, by the way — I’m not that old!) made a big impression on my fertile young mind at the time, as it explored, via this offbeat style, what the author characterized as ‘an inquiry into values’ (which is actually its subtitle). Here is how he described his writing style: ‘What is in mind is a sort of Chautauqua . . . . like the traveling tent-show Chautauquas that used to move across America, . . . an old-time series of popular talks intended to edify and entertain . . .’. Great read, if you ever get the chance — especially for any of you who have owned a motorcycle, or delved into Zen Buddhism to any degree, or both (like I have).
While riding this wild wave called Life on Planet Earth, I have had some pretty crazy and challenging experiences, and done some pretty heavy research into lots of different topics, primarily driven by the huge question most definitely on many people’s minds these days: ‘WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON AROUND HERE???!!!‘ So this blog is dedicated to a) entertaining anecdotes about my very unique, yet also very much accessible, life(style), and b) the biggest questions of existence facing humanity today. What a combo, huh?
I welcome you to join me on this offbeat exploration of ‘modern’ life and times. If you like what you read/see/feel here, please feel free to subscribe, and post any diplomatic comments. I should warn you, though: This blog is not for those who like their information or ‘reports from the hinterlands’ sugar-coated. As those who know me will not hesitate to attest to, my unapologetic and occasionally even undiplomatic style is not the warmest and fuzziest around! Because of this quirky aspect of my personality, this blog site is NOT a discussion board, nor do I wish to engage in any type of ‘discussion’ or ‘debate’ of the issues presented in this particular space. For THAT type of interaction, please visit (and join if you feel so inclined) a wonderful platform for discussing some very deep current topics that I co-founded a few months ago, at www.AscendingCommunity.com.
That’s about it for now. Until the next time . . . .
