Happy Day-After-Labor day 2014! May the “white” after Labor Day be the light shining from our hearts and not just my skin-tone after pool season.
As an intergalactic symbol of my clear decision to make this the greatest summer yet (and also as a general sign of respect to the cosmos), you may recall that I celebrated the solstice by deliberately creating a star-shaped tan-line from nipple pasties.
I decided this would be the greatest summer yet, and so, for me, it has been. Once we decide, so it is. It’s not that I haven’t had whack shit go down, it’s just that I practice the yoga of not giving a fuck. It does take a little effort every day to calm the fluctuations of the mind. That’s why it’s a practice. There is no “good” or “bad” at yoga — there is just practicing it and not practicing it. In ‘The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali,’ yoga is defined as “the calming of the fluctuations of the mind.”
Calmness. Stillness. Chillness.* Not-giving-a-fuck. We all create our own realities and nothing is ever necessarily what it seems.
*lol sry im high as fuck
We “live” in this multidimensional psychedelic hallucination similar to a video game (not that I play fucking video games) with different levels, choices and avatars. Within the illusion, we can choose from a poolside rosé soaked game or a violent, angry “game”. Whatever game we have decided we want to play, the lessons will come over-and-over, perhaps almost the exact scenario, like in a video game – until we pass the level. How? By calming our reactions, by doing the yoga of life: by not giving a fuck. My advice for getting to the higher levels? Smoke a ton of weed, do yoga and reserve your fucks for things you actually care about, like loving others or making art.
Not-giving-a-fuck. Another translation may be “I’m Fine.” Oh, did I spend the entire time I lived in Echo Park waiting for the Lassen’s Organic Grocery Store to open that still has yet to open? Yes! And guess what? I’m fine. Never better, in fact. I can take it! Keep the punches coming. (By punches I mean slaps and purely in a sexual and non-metaphorical fashion. I’m really into the universe knowing how jacked i am on learning my lessons through joy.)
So regardless of what kind of whack shit we are going through, there IS light there if we are open to it.** There is the possibility of calming the mind and filtering the experience through love. The fluctuations of the mind are the fears and the stillness, the base vibration is the love.
**stars shine in the darkness. Is the sun bright to the sun? can it feel it’s own power and light? Does it know it gives us all light and how much hash oil I’ve taken today?
Fuck fear, it’s silly. Am I scared that my star-nipple tan-line won’t make it to spring? No! I’ll be fine. Why? Because I don’t give a fuck. (Shout-out to the New World Order for tricking the majority of Americans into living in a bubble of fear! Terror Levels! Threat Level codes! Scary weather! Doomsday!) “Cancel, clear, delete” all of that. WHO CARES. Fear only draws in more fear. War talk draws in more war talk. So you know what? I don’t want to hear about it. I don’t want to talk about it. I want to talk about love. It is an endless topic of wonder and magic. Excuse me for being “completely uninformed” – I prefer to remain informed about the actual truth – the only truth – the truth of love.
So, with three weeks left until the Fall Equinox, let me first of all congratulate each and every one of you to making it this far and for gracing this planet with your energy.
More/less importantly, what can we do to perpetuate and maximize the love-vibes created in the Summer of 2014? ***
***2014, 2/14=valentines day 2014 = summer of love****
****Does the fact that I completely believe that 8+4=3 make me insane? No, because I don’t expect to get different results when I do the same things! Also, to show my work, 8+4=12 1+2=3 (fuck+off=fuck off)
In the spirit of love and joy, I have created a Scavenger Hunt, based off of things I may or may not have experienced this summer. (Shout-out to my personal NSA concierge, Neil!)
I would say that this hunt is intended to be used between now and the Fall Equinox on September 23, except for we are limitless and rules are stupid. Also, if you can swim naked at a luxurious pool in January, DO IT (if you want, no pressure)*****
*****No pressure, no diamonds******
