RANDOM THOUGHTS

  1. When something is easy on my eye, like beautiful architecture or exact symmetry; I always think about why that is. It makes me think more about the human desire to feel calm, at rest, and right. Whatever calms the chaos are the things we are constantly always chasing.
  2. We study our brain using our brain. That's the coolest.
  3. I saw a photo of this piece of street art in a subway long ago that read, "question everything." To this day I still think about that statement and how beneficial it can be for someone. The "why" in the world is what drives imagination, adventure, exploration, discovery and realization. Don't accept anything for what it is! Always challenge "why."
  4. If you're not going to be positive, then at least, be quiet.
  5. I want to know someone else to the extent that I know myself.
  6. I wish I didn't have reflexes so I could stand outside in the rain and look up and beads of water would collect on the eyes like they do on car windshields.
  7. Just like all aspects of life; evolution takes place. As time ceaselessly ticks onward, we see things change. Sometime for better and sometimes for worse.
  8. Hypocrisy stems from the awareness of the difference between right and wrong.
  9. The easiest friendships you'll have are the ones that are created and destroyed with a single moment of eye contact.
  10. Name one problem in the world today that can't be fixed if said person/people gained some perspective.
  11. I wonder if "who, what, when, where, why" was put in order of importance when the term was coined.
  12. Everything is connected. Nothing you will ever do will affect you and only you. There is no such thing.
  13. I think as humans we live to inspire one another. I can't think of something noteworthy that's come about that wasn't stemmed from someone getting inspired.
  14. It's so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone. - John Steinbeck
  15. Conflicting messages. That's why the kids these days are so unsure of themselves and suffer on such an epidemic level. When you create an environment that tells us one thing, and then convince us that it's the other way around whenever easiest; it really affects an impressionable mind.
  16. "Principles are the territory. Values are just the map."
  17. "I am happy to be here."
  18. The idea that opportunity is a closing window is so wrong. Opportunity will never ever cease, not even slightly.
  19. People are often so caught up in maintaining consistency of their public beliefs, that they don't even accept that life is a feeling process, you are meant to evolve as a sum of your experiences. They turn into greater defenders of their image than their core values. This is the hardest thing to hide, too.
  20. You allow yourself higher levels of freedom being able to effectively work with others, instead of being sufficient on your own.
  21. I wish the sunset lasted longer. That's what really bothers me.
  22. I want to take a tour around the United States' most beautiful lakes and document it.
  23. Just wanted to document here that I'm proud of how strong I am, and how much better I've been able to stick to commitments I make.
  24. By studying simple patterns amongst complex works, the answers become more and more visible sooner and sooner. Makes you wonder why there's such a need for a process.
  25. The influence that comes from humility is far stronger than the influence that comes from power.
  26. My favorite word is 'etcetera' because nobody really bothers to learn how to spell it out, or say it properly.
  27. Enjoy the hell out of your life.
  28. I think the human race is collectively so daunting all because everyone has something to say about someone else, and that creates such a violent disconnect between how we are all one entity, working together (or should be.)
  29. We have the power as self-aware human beings to choose how certain events will affect us.
  30. "Love is something you do. The sacrifices you make, the giving of self, like a mother bringing a newborn into the world. If you want to study love, study those who sacrifice for others, even for people who offend or do not love in return." - Stephen Covey
  31. Everyone around me is draining the life out of me. I don't have any friends who fully appreciate me.
  32. When Mac Miller releases music under his alter-go "Larry Fisherman" and features "Mac Miller" on a song it really puts into perspective how fucking out of his mind he is; I'm inspired.
  33. Sometimes I really genuinely want to lose my sense of sanity, so I can see the world from a different pair of eyes accompanied by a different collective of thoughts.
  34. You have no right to complain about anything if you don't also have the willingness to change it.
  35. Those who think they know it all, stand to learn the least.
  36. Show others love for no other reason than that. Just to do so. Show others love.
  37. The more we learn, the more clearly we can focus the lens through which we see the world.
  38. Of all things I've learned about myself in this life of mine, one thing is for sure: I am not and have never been a selfish person.
  39. Pictures of the ocean have always calmed me. Just the ocean and the sky. Limitless in appearance. Infinitely expansive.
  40. If you carry the notion that nothing good in life can last long, you must also accept that nothing bad lasts forever either.
  41. Let your dying mission be to give this world more than it gave you in the long run. Don't take your belongings, your friends or your family for granted. Ever. Always give more of yourself than you are given by others. If you're afraid of heaven that'll get you there. If you're fearful of hell that is your motivation.
  42. He saw the world differently, therefore he reacted to it differently.
  43. "He that dares not grasp the thorn, should never crave the rose." - Anne Bronte
  44. "You need people like me, people like me to point your fucking fingers at and say he's the bad guy, not me."
  45. Too many people live with the constant fear of being judged and that's their biggest obstacle to fulfillment, creation, and happiness.
  46. I just heard a commercial for the radio.. on the radio. Wait.
  47. The relative quietness of an apartment stairwell compared to a noisy street brings me much serenity.
