STLB SAYS…

All there is… is love and hugs and amazingly happy memories amongst insane chaos and ruptures of sadness. But, that’s where creativity and positive energy engulfs the duality you know about. It’s just pieces of a person.

Humbled…

donny j.t. is a person

This made me feel better when I wasn’t supposed to be thinking of anything and sure as hell didn’t need to be spending time thinking of this mf while meditating today.

We’re on the same ground. Strip away all the power and media, we’re the same. We don’t think the same or act the same, but at the end of the day we’re a couple of people.

Maybe this helps because I find myself wanting him to come up and say something dumb while watching the DemocracyNow! headlines over lunch.

Maybe it’s to help me and anyone willing to remember/understand it all often feels like a big media ploy. Calculated and harmful but a big ploy. Just a person saying stuff for effect. A class clown with a giant microphone to the world.

Doesn’t justify anything good or bad bro has done or does. We’re not the same people. But maybe it helps to view dude as less then some kind of super-human, which maybe you already do.

Fun is the highest order of human behavior

Wanted to share Patrick Rhone’s words on non-dualism… aka doing you 100… aka Fun Pro etiquette techniques a milli.

Peep game <3

Someone asked me to explain the concept of nondualism to them. Here’s what I said…

Right now, you are both living and dying.

Everything that is living is with each passing moment also progressing towards death. As such, every moment more you live you also move closer to death. Both are active states within you and all living things.

Every moment a star burns, it is also dying. The planets, the moon, the universe itself — every moment existing while at the same time marching towards non-existence.

Somewhere, every moment, a leaf falls from a tree on one side of the planet and a new bud springs to life on a tree on the other side. The dead leaf decomposes and feeds the roots of the tree from which it fell, thus providing nourishment so that it can sprout new leaves in spring. A cycle of constant simultaneous living and dying.

It is true of any non-living object too. Your favorite tea cup is both able to hold your tea and in each moment is actively traveling closer to its breaking. Every moment your smartphone works it is actively moving towards never turning on again.

So, if one were to ask me if I were living or dying, the correct answer is both.

This answer — this truth — is non-dual.

Such an active awareness will help one see the the impermanence off all things. Knowing that each and every thing contains both states actively within them helps to clarify the miracle of every moment and form a deep appreciation for all things. It changes the way you see the world. Everything in the present moment is both miraculously alive and actively dying. Those who dwell deeply within this knowledge will also see that this idea is, at it’s purest, that which connects us and that we share in common to everything. A truly universal truth.
