DISCLAIMER: I know nothing!

The writings on this account as well as my personal account are simply, as my cousin calls them, ‘diaries of a mad man’ (she is 1 of 2 people who have caught a glimpse into my handwritten journal(s)).

In fact anyone or group of people (hello religion(s)) who claim to ‘know’ and have all the answers are full of .  Maybe their dogma or belief systems works for them, and that’s great!! I love and respect all faiths, customs, and traditions, BUT do not tell me that yours is the only way. 

All religions are branches belonging to the same tree, rooted down to the core of the earth that is the universal truth/mystery. It’s a shame most humans see the branches as   independent and conflicting with one another, instead of the one whole system, or organism. 

Again, please remember what my cousin said, ‘diaries of a mad man’ and if you’ve read this far, THANK YOU! I cherish your time, and energy that you are investing into my ‘madness’.

As much as I know that I don’t know, there are a few things that I do know:

I know that I’ve been questioning life and this existence from my earliest memories. 

I know that love is faaaaar greater than hate, that anger is not ever the solution to anything! I know that life seems to be better when in service, when doing all actions with loving-kindness and compassion. 

I know we can learn a lot from animals; like how to stretch and love unconditionally like dogs. How to work together in community, as a whole system like insects. How to transmute pain, and use it for growth and expansion like lobsters. How to go inside yourself and become transformed on the other side like a butterfly. How to sing/pray like birds!   #biomimicry

I know that I want  to gather as many stories and adventures as I can in this life-time, because when I'm on my deathbed they'll be all I have with me.

I know that as much as I want it to be life is not fair. Life doesn't care about self-pity, or how our day is going. BUT life does care about our passion, our enthusiasm, our dedication, and that life can be controlled by our attitudes.

I know that absolutely every person who exists knows at least one thing that I do not. And I am going to take the time to learn from everyone, especially from children!

I know that there is no substitute for hard work, but if you work really really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen!

I know we’ve become nearly completely disconnected from nature and all the elements that we are made of. We’ve not only stopped learning from the wisdom that is Mother Earth, ‘we’ are actually murdering her! And NEWS ALERT she’s been around A LOT longer than humans have, and will continue to be! The human species will  become extinct (probably by our own doings) long before earth is gone, she will go on for a couple more billion years after us.

I know that I am passionate about life, and that even though it is not always fair, here we are, so we better make the best of it! I know that I am committed to continue to grow, learn, and evolve in order to live up to and possibly beyond my full potential! And my hope and prayer that you do as well. 

So I guess I do know some things, but I’m still a dummy in most and have much much to learn. And will continue to ramble along as I continue gaining more knowledge and reawakening the wisdom that arises in all of us inherently. Again thanks for making it this far, and for being exactly who you are, which is absolutely perfectly who you are supposed to be! 

 

- Seth!!
