The human body has several body parts which instantaneously function like a symphony in spirit of sustaining what we call “life”. In this case, by “life” I am simply referring to the act of breathing, having the ability to wake up healthy each day. There are an uncountable amount of ways to view this term “life”, therefore I bare you my meaning to cease all basphomy. At this point, I will only speak of one instrument in the symphony, the human heart.
I am no scientist, nor do I even bother familiarizing myself with scientific-al rambles; I say rambles because I strongly view science as an empty opinion. It does nothing but states/studies the process,
never will it conclude or inform one about the actuality of any beginning!
“This almost endless task the natural sciences make easier by means of abstractoions, drawing together what is general in order to separate what is particular.” – Schopenhauer
resist the urge to speak more about this matter and storage it for a latter moment.
Do not judge or falsely accuse me when I speak of the heart, for I am instilling this segment now to clear any misconceptualities. As I speak of the heart, I am stating and objectifying it through my will; I am open to discussions, not objections.
It shall cause no surprise to hear that your heart is one of the key instruments in sustaining life, what intrigues me ever more though, is what has not been contemplated or studied… your heart’s amount of
“kindness”. Emotion is a precarious concept, it can be felt, faked, or faulted, nonetheless, it is an attribute that we, beings, posses. There exists a saying that I hear quite frequently, “Do it out of the kindness of your heart.” I would like you, fellow Truth Seeker, to re-examine this saying once more. This quote is imposing onto the heart a plurality–> being not only is it an organ which sustains life, but it is also capable of showing/creating acts of kindness.
Kindness is an emotion, an emotions is felt, not through touch… but through your mind. It is a finite misconception that a heart is what “produces” these emotions, this is not the case; it is in fact, your mind. Just as the mind produces pleasure, pain, complacency; this is not the heart’s duty. I do not blame thee though for possessing this idea vice-verse, we are unfortunately taught several fallacies in our young public educational career which we carry on throughout our time on Earth. If one ceases to push pass this “object” in search of true will, then one will unfortunately end up in a solitude of blindness ( i.e. Plato’s Cave; for those who I have lost in my writing). For one to claim that “an act of kindness” can come from your heart irks me, it sounds incoherent, we are placing onto an object a power that it does not posses! For arguments sake, I will quite briefly ponder this conception…. of an “act of kindness.”
How is such an act even measurable? How can one truly know infinitely if another being is acting out of kindness (remember fellow Truth Seeker, we are placing such an implausible idea on the stand for it’s sentencing; we must not shut out this conception completely without analyzing it for ourselves). It is simple for one to claim the attribute of kindness, partially for the reason being that kindness is also based off of
perception. What I see as kind, you may see as greedy, there is a problem with words; they can be perceived falsely, and can go un repaired if not addressed. In sake of argumentation, “kind” is referencing towards doing something extra and unexpected for someone other than yourself; being selfless. “I got you this just because” or “Sure, you can have $20”, these words place a mask of kindness onto those who speak them, but one can not view into a soul –> a mind. It is a grief possibility that these beings have become too accustomed to flaunting this mask, they seem to be kind; when what lays behind this mask could in fact be an alternative motive.
Politics are the clearest paradigm where alternative motives can be observable. The politician promises, smiles, reassures, reiterates, all in hopes of being chosen. Once this goal is attained, the politician suddenly remains complacent with these issues where there was once a drive, a fire; only to ad hoc hominem “My hands are tied with this issue”. I pose another form of example; The mother and father pride in dropping their children off every day for school, they see perfect attendance as an honorable award; when in reality, the parents are using the school as as daycare while they handle what needs to be done. And another, a dog obeys and seizes to use the house as a toilet, only so when the owner arrives back home, a treat will be presented to said dog. I am willful that one of these archetypes allow my point to be
On the contrary, a plant. A plant performs it’s daily duties for the planet, it gets pollinated, breathes in Carbon dioxide, produces for the humans oxygen. One of the major necessities humans need to live relies on the plant. Is this a clear form of the kindness of your heart? Is a plant capable of possessing such a kindness?
A plant does not have a
WILL; It is mere will of a plant which drives it to truly dmonstrate an act that does not souley benefit itself.
My expectancy is for you, fellow Truth Seeker, to stop relying on fallacy, and start awakening to reality. We as beings must cease with the contamination and infectious spread of lies!
We must begin to awaken and spread the TRUTH.

I am a soul with a mind that is continuously engrossed with various topics. I appreciate a challenge in attempting to change my methods, but I can almost guarantee they will fall short. I do not write for your opinions or satisfaction… I right for a movement, an edification; I write for those who seek the Truth.
For as long as my mind can wonder, it seems pretty evident that women have always been in the backseat. Not put second to men, but instead put last completely. Positioned behind every minority, animal, and even historical document… women seem to not only be forgotten, but they are also continuously pushed and silenced from their thoughts, needs, and passions. Most upsetting of all, they were
denied a VOICE.
Starting off as a part of the womb, girls are already being brainwashed into taking part in womanly duties. Example, once two parents discover the gender of their baby is female, they instantly begin to decorate the females room with pink, bows, princesses, little kitchen sets, cleaning supplies in toy format, they even go as far as to buy a “toy baby” to give to their own child. Females are basically thrown the demands of motherhood from the second of their birth. No one can argue that a female makes these choices for herself, a child in general can not even make up their minds when it comes to their choice in food, more less be able to make a choice to turn motherhood into playtime.
I see this everywhere, it is upsetting and despicable. Seeing a young female pushing a toy stroller with a toy baby in it. It is simply a form of manipulation… caused by the major toy companies. They have instilled into our minds that this type of behavior from small females is acceptable in today’s society. Instead of forcing these females to discover motherhood at a young age, why do we not place maps, blue prints, books, and pen/paper in their hands? Why must we remain conformed in a society that has always known “the women cooks, cleans, cares for the children… the men make the money and have all say so in the house”. I say no… NO MORE!
I do not know if this muddles anyone else’s minds… but I do intend for these words to inspire and awaken those women, young or old, to stand up and use the voice that they now have today! Thanks to remarkable women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, women now are able to vote, work, attend school… and truly make something of yourselves. It is not the men who are suppressing women any longer, no.. it is WOMEN themselves! Do not fall into the ambush of the toy companies, the “traditional duties” that women are supposed to perform, or the complacency that sometimes men push onto women.
If you who are living today do not make use of the history and struggles women have gone through to get here… those who fought for this cause will
have died in vain and women could possibly REMAIN in the backseat; not in their own lives… but the backseat of the World.

“The Surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”
An important trophy to hold in life is that of being an individual. By this, I mean to say that beings should be prideful with the concept of uniqueness. One shan’t strive to be uniformed to society, rather than to be the spark in the complacent world we reside in currently.
It is a rare instance that there are beings who strive to be different… there are even fewer beings that are just that way by birth (naturally). There is a major difference in trying to be an individual, than actually being one. Yes, you can argue the fact that one is an individual by birth, for the obvious reason that you leave your mother’s womb and are then expected to be your “own person” so to speak. This is
not what I mean by individual however; those who think critically, speak up when oppressed, and lead the world to differentiate between uniformity and libertarian… are those that truly are Individuals.
Let us go deeper with this thought; to not be bothered, moved, or have your opinions changed by your surroundings is a
difficult task to achieve in today’s society. Not for me, so I am not speaking from experience, but for several others. I state this for the reason being that too many individuals that I cross paths with, work with, read their pieces, or even over hear their conversations… all seem to correlate to the same tune. It seems too obvious that beings are fearful of liberation, of freedom, of the Truth.
We should all be focused on guiding our youth to embrace their individualities, rather than
bury them deep down. Society needs to adapt and accept “different” better than it ever has before. We must begin to view “different” as intelligent, as a leader, as the Truth; & view Uniformity as bland, scared, and a letdown. Until this deed is done, the world will continue to have the misconception of what true liberty is… we will continue to suffer. We, the Seekers of Truth, need to comprehend the ability we posses to let our intuitionism guide us not only through life, but let it lead as the only way possible to live.

“Many a man fails to become a thinker for the sole reason that his
memory is too good.”
There is a vast amount of beings that at several moments through out their life, experience an inexpedient urge from within. I would be fibbing to say that I am not one of these beings. Coming across the quote that is provided above for you, the fellow seeker of Truth, I began to contemplate on the sole reason behind the issue of this almost unexplainable feeling.
Some do not care that they are part of this uncongenial group of
outcasts… others obsess and conform to the norm of the era. Whichever category fits you best, I hope my explanation and thoughts fill you with complexity and perplexed vibes. I am aware that I may not always see things as you… but if you are taking the time to concentrate on my thoughts, there is a possibility that I may be understood.
Memory is often looked at as something positive and ever lasting… I agree with only one of these statements &I will explain why. Memory is definitely everlasting (unless you suffer a traumatic experience where all memory is lost), it is what stores the good and bad times, it is per say, the mark in your mind that never fades. Sometimes you wish to forget certain instances… yet others you plead to recall forever.
The problem I have with memory and its permanency, is that we as beings, tend to get hung up and stuck with what is stored… even if it is WRONG. I can not agree with someone who is an “old school catholic” (for sake of example) that abides daily to the 10 commandments and does countless hail Mary’s daily. To me this routine is pointless and will not save you from your wrong doings. It is simply just a routine, something that comes from memory, that you believe will make you a better person. I can not sit with the fact that Christopher Columbus is the man who discovered America (although this is what we teach our youth). I will not be satisfied with society claiming that life is either black or white, or that humans are either man or woman. I am not someone who sees things so one sided.
I am a philosopher, I am a Thinker, I am a Truth Seeker… I will NEVER be held down by memory. For memory is one of the greatest downfalls society can encounter. Memory will restrict the levels of critical contemplation your mind could and should reach..
Nirvana, so to speak.
Do not be a complacent being who takes “facts” from others and simply memorizes them. This is not knowledge, this is not thinking. That, my fellow beings, is the greatest cop out one can take.
Stand up, question, be brave, & do not be held down by memory.

The Role of the Pope’s Duties: his priority lies in getting to know people, understanding how they live, listening to their interests and sharing their sufferings and their joys. The Pope is the unifier of the People of God, he is also the Prime Witness to Faith; This includes both preaching &teaching the word of God…
Basing my post off of this definition, I will now explain to you the anger, disgust, and contradictions I saw/experienced recently dealing with the current Pope (Francis) and his actions.
Now, I do not fully understand myself and why this image greatly upset me, I mean the Pope is no one to me… yet these actions he portrayed infused a spark of anger and vehement that was too impossible to subdue. I know we live in “America the Great” A.K.A. the leader of all Capitalistic societies.. but for the POPE to as well fall into the scheme of consumerism? Disappointment. I would like to hear from those who actually follow Pope Francis on a regulatory basis who would maybe be able to change my POV from negative to positive (although once my mind is made up it is concrete so your attempts might be worthless).
I do not know him nor claim to follow anything else he has ever done while being the Pope; But what I do know is the image of him parading around like a beauty queen on the top of Mercedes Benz… did not sit will with me to say the least.
Your thoughts & comments are always welcomed… my mind is constantly on a power trip.. thank you for taking the journey with me.

“The man is wisest who realizes that his wisdom is worthless.”
How can wisdom be worthless?
Perception is Key here… what is wisdom to you
might not be wisdom at all to another.
Is there such a thing as wisdom?
Is it worthless because we will never truly KNOW?
Is worthless a negative aspect? Rather something you might actually want to obtain?
This is just a short example of why I call myself –> Truth Seeker.
& Yes; I do realize that my journey might not ever end..
But that is the Beauty of it all.

Commitment —> The state or an instance of being obligated and/or emotionally impelled to a goal/object/being.
Although I could not find a well fitting definition, (in my opinion) I chose the one inscribed above and added a few distinctions to specify it. The world we reside in (I won’t say live in because so many of us are complacently dead) is filled with various situations involving commitment. Now, this man-made term can be perceived several different ways to many different people, but for the sake of MY blog, only see commitment as the definition I have provided you, the seeker of truth. The more time I spend pondering commitment, the more convinced I become that it is only a form of oblivious insanity. When I speak of insanity, this is the definition you must focus on:
Doing the same exact thing over and over, then expecting different results.
This can be taken into context in several of our “daily commitments”, I will speak of only a handful, each with it’s own instance. One definite conclusion I have been able to obtain through all of this is the fact that commitment can be both, positive and/or negative. In terms of a successful college student that has done exceptionally well through the said being’s college career, it is obvious and safe to say that there is a positive form of commitment here. Why? Well, if said being is obtaining success on a regulatory basis, surely the steps said being is taking when studying, attending classes, and test taking.. is working. They are “committed” to maintain this passing average. This of course is considering all aspects of external and internal influences. If the student were to become careless and “un-commited”, the result would be polar opposite of the one first stated. Do not confuse my words… I am not saying that change is always negative and leads to failure. The truth is, change can actually be extremely positive and add to this achievement… as long as it is PLANNED change. Impulse is one of the many problems we as humans encounter and struggle with on a daily basis. The more precise and committed we stay, the better the life we lead will become and be.
Another example I too placed long thought into, was commitment to a person. This is where the idea of insanity becomes easier to see. Above I have said that as long as the studious college student remains committed to doing great in school, the path will be a clear one without negative surprise. BUT what then happens when two people are in a relationship, 100% positively committed on one side, but on the other end, the commitment is negatively connonated. In a problematic situation like this, it is extremely easy for someone (the one who is actually positively committed) to be taken advantage of and ultimately be driven insane! They will continually remain with the negative being knowing that they are cruel, they remain because they are “commited”. Not only does commitment now seem like a form of insanity, but it is also viewed as a form of excuse. An excuse for someone to remain obliviously insane, expecting a different outcome that will cease to exist.
The final example I will pose to you is the commitment to an object/action. When one becomes committed to an action, like working out for sake of example, it can be positively viewed by outsiders looking in. This committed workout-person is viewed as fit, healthy, active, happy and so forth. Now, dig deeper into the mindset of this person who is committed to working out on a daily basis; regardless of the situations they are faced with that day. They actually begin to become insanely obsessed with the idea of “being fit” even if it means only getting three hours of sleep before work the next morning, or skipping a meal and working out instead. If said person is denied the right to fulfill the commitment, they become angry and begin obsessing on how they were not able to fulfill their commitment for that day. In my opinion, this is the easiest way to view insanity driven by commitment yet the hardest. Here, we have a situation of oblivion occurring not to the person who is committed, because they know that working out every day is taking a toll on them, But the oblivion now lies externally! To those who think they know, but do not. They misconstrue various beings due to the actions they take and create a misconception; a dreadful woe mankind is unfortunately subdued to.
This next point may be hard to understand, but I will explain it nontheless. Imagine a baby who is “committed” to their pacifier. They can not live without it, can not sleep without it, or leave the house without it. This pacifier has become their gold and most important object. Although they are too young to understand the term insane… one could claim that they are in fact obliviously insane! The baby will repeatedly cry and whine for the pacifier, they will eventually get it, this will then cause momentary happiness because sooner or later, the pacifier will be left behind or taken away by another being. Not only is this a form of oblivious insanity, but it is also a controlled form of insanity. A baby can not get dressed, go to a store, and purchase a pacifier… it is done externally by a parent or guardian (they are unknowingly encouraging this form of insanity). The positive aspect about this form of insanity is that the insanity will eventually fade off. The baby will soon grow up and no longer have that need for the pacifier; they will awaken to the fact that this commitment was never necessary, rather than it was just a form of habbit. Something that is done for momentary happiness, not something performed out of true need.
Now that I have elucidated my theories and definitions, I want you to consider the following statements.
Is there true purpose in commitment? If so, how can you state that you have an acutal choice once participating in the commitments made… how can you define the lines of insanity (oblivious or intented)? How is insanity effected by external and internal forces?
I am curious to

“Under what conditions did Man invent for himself those judgements of values, “Good” and “Evil”? And what intrinsic value do they possess in themselves?”
With this thought I shall rant! In today’s latent society, humans tend to continuously generate misconceptions on MANY things… I will speak of two (Good & Evil). When we speak of those who are “Good”, we picture the high society, wealthy, priests, and so on. We imagine the English aristocracy of the past, for it is they who coined the term. We surely do not automatically think of the poor, the suffering, the lost. NO! Those are the “Evil”, the less successful, the ones who in retrospect, are the bottom of the human hierarchy… slaves.
Here is where I will challenge you to view things vise versa. Who initially created these so called values of Good and Evil? Were they created in fact by those who claim to be Good?! Yes! In fact they were, those of royal status imposed the crooked idea that they were the Good, the righteous, the noble, the truth. In fact, this is completely malapropos; how can one be Good and at the same time categorize others as Evil?! Surely one who is Good could not possess the ability to label others in a negative connotation. Yet, so easily is this done, even in today’s time.
In all actuality, it is the low-minded, the vulgar, the plebeian who are fit to be Good! For they are not the ones who took it upon themselves to create such values. They are good because they are Morally True. Those who possess hidden pretenses will try to masquerade as the Good, but one should not be fooled… yet so many in today’s time still are. It is almost a death that we are experiencing in our generation, a death of realization and knowledge. It is almost like we know we are too incapable to challenge and question, we do not even see the problem at hand, so we keep living complacently & never shaking the solitude so many of us are placed in. Now, I can not blame one for ending up in this unfortunate state of neurasthenia, for the world we live in is a definite trap. We are continuously mislead and brainwashed into the lies we believe to be truths. I can blame you though for not going with that tugging feeling in your stomach, the feeling that this life you have been living does not seem what it should; emptiness.
Now that you have been able to see things as I (hopefully), it is quite reasonable to still feel flabbergasted and questionable. Please, do not ever hesitate with your questions for I believe them to be the truest form of knowledge. The idea of the priest for example, he who claims to be the worthy and the true, the Good; I beg to differ. Being strongly tied to the aristocratic society, he is actually the weakest, clamoring for any type of shield he can create; the shield of the “Good”. I am Good because I preach the word… I say NO! You are Evil because you speak lies, not the word. You speak what you think wants to be heard, not what needs to be heard. He who has no courage will always be Evil. From the era of the great Erasmus and Martin Luther, the church was considered to be the government. They ruled, you followed. It was not until beings began to rebel, to question, to act against it… that changes were actualized and generated.
It is interesting to consider though, that man is the only thing with the ability to actually be “Evil”. Why? Because he is the creator! The plant nor the animal brought these values upon us, we did. We are quick to only see two sides of the world, the Good and the Evil. How disheartened that we only have two ways of seeing… why do we as humans sell ourselves so short? In all instances… besides those that consist of rising up against the “Evil” (who pretend to be Good). Moments of riots and wars against the true Evil doers are moments that should be taught in schools in order to instill that fire in the young’s souls that they too, if one day need be, can rise up against the Evil and create an anomaly!
Contemplating on the terms “Good” and “Evil”, are they now still how they have always been viewed (wrongly); or did they now loose value and seem empty? One must begin to question the true etymological value of these two words… because at the end of it all they are just words. Created by aristocratic Evil humans to classify beings, wrongly. I have the will to change this act of misunderstanding and imposing unnecessary lies onto individual truths.

Along with a cup of coffee, my morning has begun with the contemplation of life as a mere metaphor in reference of a vegetable. As you read my thoughts, one must keep and open and critique-free mindset; let words just be words as representations in themselves and nothing more unless fair warned.
Imagine the fetus stage of life as being a seed in a packet. A seed amongst others, no exact order of what seed will be picked to plant… just a randomized process of chance. This is merely representing the sperms inside a man’s scrotum, they do not have the ability to choose which one will be picked to enter and attach to the women’s ovaries, and then create the first stage of what we know as life.
Once the seed has been planted into the fertilized soil of the Earth, it is then watered and cared for until the development process reaches an end. As the sperm is implanted into the woman’s uterus and “sticks”, the woman is now responsible (like the farmer) to feed, water, and care for this developing being.
When the developing stage of the seed is over, it is now easy to see that the seed is no longer; now lives a ripe and ready to pick vegetable (for sake of example). I believe that like the vegetable ready to be picked, humans too are sort of waiting for this as well. What I am inferring is that humans are vying to feel realization and enlightenment in order to live. Just like the vegetable (considering it is a thing in itself) is waiting for it’s will on Earth to be fufilled by being picked and eventually eaten by a human. If the vegetable however is NOT PICKED at the right time, or even not picked at all, this once living and full of will vegetable begins to die. This is the statement that will lead us into my final point persay. If the human does not become “picked” it too slowly begins to die. You see, humans like vegetables, are filled with will; it is what drives us and gives us the sense of purpose.
For the unfortunate human that remains “un-picked” , it will definitely be a sad and purpose-less life. Said being will remain living in a complacent and routine filled way… slowing dying day by day until the capsule of said being’s body can go on no longer. I want you all to realize that UNLIKE the vegetable, we have the ability to awaken ourselves (or be picked)! The vegetable can only sit and wait, full of hope and will, always relying on something external other than itself. The human on the other end, does not have to sit around and rely on these ether related subjects… YET SO MANY OF US DO!
Having stated my morning thoughts, my hope for you all is to stop being complacent and placing your fate elsewhere. Realize that fate is your choice and always has been, stop choosing to remain “un-picked”! Awaken, question, search, give your will the ability to live!
