I'm turning 45 on the 4th and since I don’t post much on here, I thought I’d share my perspective on a handful of things that I have learned during my incredibly brief time on this planet thus far:

* Life will have many more twists and turns than you ever thought it would
* Every setback is an opportunity to reassess what it is you really want from life
* Things may appear hopeless, but they are not. The end result will be up to you
* When you understand how people truly work, forgiveness washes over you - especially towards yourself
* One death is a tragedy, 50,000 deaths is a statistic
* The majority is not what you should aspire to be in alignment with
* If you’re still arguing with people on social media, you aren’t understanding human nature
* Your opinions, beliefs and worldview are not some universal “truth”
* There appears to be an inherent “good” - but it won’t be found in a book
* Feeling bad for someone does not help that someone
* Looking at life thru the lense of emotion will not be of benefit
* Emotions are nothing more than a feedback mechanism of your beliefs
* Google "emotional intelligence" - the lack of it is what is causing the majority of problems today
* Inside you resides a person capable of anything - you not truly believing this is what keeps you from achieving more in life
* Not everyone needs to achieve greatness in life - most won’t - and that’s ok
* Just because something is uncomfortable to you does not mean laws should be passed to prevent others from experiencing it
* For the most of you, you believe what you believe because of those who raised you passed on those same beliefs
* Religions of today will become more and more outdated - they were man’s way of explaining the world thru the eyes of the world at the time
* There will always be those who resist change and progress - and that’s ok
* Every new generation pushes boundaries further - we need them to do this
* There is a good chance all of this that we are experiencing is nothing more than a highly detailed VR simulation

Happy 4th everyone,
Randy

Your Lifestyle Has Already Been Designed

'The culture of the eight-hour workday is big business’ most powerful tool for keeping people in this same dissatisfied state where the answer to every problem is to buy something.'

and

'...the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work.

We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.

Western economies, particularly that of the United States, have been built in a very calculated manner on gratification, addiction, and unnecessary spending. We spend to cheer ourselves up, to reward ourselves, to celebrate, to fix problems, to elevate our status, and to alleviate boredom.'

I don't usually share this sort of thing, but this one is quite cool.

Holy cow this is awesome. I would like to add my voice to this choir :)

I really enjoyed JJ Abram's take on Star Trek (so far, he's doing OK in my book), but the fear of it being a Disney property is definitely strong in me.

If you haven't seen this video yet, check it out. It's very well done (animation is great, ideas are great, and it's only 2 minutes long).

Optimistic for a great new trilogy! :)
