Wants, Needs, Desires, and Dreams

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.

Unless we do something nothing happens, and if nothing changes then nothing changes.  I can sit here and think about what I want out of life, what I need to keep me safe and healthy, and I can dream about the women and adventures I might desire, but unless I take some positive steps I most likely will never get anything on my wish list.

For much of my life I would even come up with well thought out reasons and excuses why I couldn’t have or get what I wanted.  I didn’t have enough money, there just wasn’t the time, she doesn’t like me anyway, I’m too busy working…..

The truth was that I just didn’t have the courage or the realism to even try to get what I really wanted out of life.  Nor did I have the focus or psychological adaptability to change what I wanted, if what I first wanted was clearly impossible.  We can’t all be a  rock star, and the truth is I never wanted to be.  But there are some things that I wanted from a relationship, and I didn’t have the focus to make that work, nor did I have the guts to just walk away when it was clear that my relationships weren’t giving me what I wanted, needed, and desired.

However,  somewhere along the way things changed for me.  I wanted to be materially and financially prosperous enough that I could stop working for a living, and instead live a great life.  That has happened.  I wanted to stop being a miserable, judgemental jerk, and instead be a cool and charismatic guy.  That has happened too.

What I want, need, and desire, right now, is to improve my relationship with a female friend, and I’ll work on that.  If the relationship doesn’t improve in the ways I need, then I now have the emotional strength to just walk away.

Some say that we each have dreams and personal ambitions we want to fulfil.  And, that we will always face great opposition to seeing our dreams come true.  All I know is that if I don’t try to make my dreams come true, than nobody else will make them come true for me.

drinking and smoking will kill you,

but you already knew that

10 things successful people do

Life can take us down unexpected and difficult paths.

Through painful experience, I have learned that to be very successful in your life, there are some things we must do.  Most of them are difficult, bordering on the impossible, but all of these 10 things listed below are actually achievable.

There are two types of people who will tell that you cannot make a difference in this world; those who are afraid to try, and those who are afraid you will succeed.  ~  Ray Goforth.

I firmly believe that these are the most important of the rules we must follow in order to overcome life’s challenges, and ultimately win out:

  1. Stay Healthy.  It’s almost impossible to be successful if you’re often ill, spending time in bed, or in hospital.
  2. Overcome Addictions.  Alcoholism, Drug Addiction, Gambling, Smoking….. to name perhaps the most dangerous of all possible addictions.  If you drink too much you will lose almost everything.  If you drink and gamble you will lose everything.  If you drink, gamble, smoke, and take drugs, you will lose everything, and then you’ll die ~ horribly
  3. Stay Within the Law.  If you get involved with illegal activities, including taking drugs, drink driving, illegal gambling ~ sometime or other you will have a run in with The Police.  A criminal record does your chances of living your dream life no good at all.
  4. Say Goodbye to Toxic People.  Toxic relationships will make you unhappy, corrupt your mind and soul, and prevent you from realising how much better things can be.
  5. Seek Out, and Take, Good Advice.  If you’re physically ill see a doctor, if you’re suffering mentally see a counsellor, and if you’re just struggling seek out your closest and wisest friend.  Whatever advice you’re given, really take it to heart.
  6. Do Not Waste Time or Money.  Too many people throw their money away without thought.  Almost everyone wastes their time on unimportant activities.  A fool and his money are soon parted.  Time is the most precious resource we have.
  7. Stay Romantically and Sexually Faithful.  Affairs, casual sex, multiple partners, using sex-workers, are all going to waste your time and money.  You will get into trouble, and if you’re married, you will be asked for a divorce.
  8. Keep Learning.  Nobody can know everything, but most people don’t even try to improve their mind and knowledge once they finish their formal education.  The internet and a million books are out their, and something you learn may just give you the edge you need to become successful.
  9. Focus On Things You Can Control.  God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.  And, don’t let me try to change people, because that never works.
  10. Follow Your Dreams.  Dreams are the fuel for your success.  Without dreams there can never be any meaningful and lasting success in your life.

Some very smart people can ignore some of these rules, some of the time, and still be successful.  But you can’t ignore all of these rules, all of the time, and still have a hope in hell of making a success of your life.  And, never worry about failure, just make certain that you pick yourself up and start again.

Tunes on Tuesday ~ dating a witch

Dating a witch is a bed of black roses.

Her voice was a voice that witches have,

that tear at a man’s deepest desire,

she spoke and in that bright flame,

my soul was consumed in her fires.

~

Please listen responsibly.

It seems that I know 3 witches, and they are all wayward.  How sweet it is.

A kiss from a witch in the moonlight leads a man forever to his unrequited love’s doom.

Some say that a witch will always have cats.  And that a kiss from a witch can enchant a man forever.  All I know is that I’d rather date an evil witch than any ordinary woman.

Places to Go

Imagination and travel to places far away are my mistresses.

There are some place in this world that I would like to take a girlfriend.  And most women would like the places I would take them.

The Pointlessness of Medicinal Marijuana

Banning cannabis just makes it even more desirable.

Some say that using cannabis has medicinal benefits.  And that using a little weed never hurt anyone.  All I know is that regularly using cannabis will put you on a slippery slope to misery, degradation, and death.

The US Food and Drug Administration, (FDA), has not approved marijuana for medicinal use, although a large number of doctors and their patients swear by its effectiveness and positive health benefits.  Which is utterly delusional because a placebo is just about as effective as cannabis when it comes to relieving the worst symptoms of most illnesses.   However, people still take medicinal marijuana to obtain relief from the more unpleasant symptoms of their illness ~ and not just to get high.  However, medicinal marijuana will still give you a rush and get you high.

Cannabis in my view is being deliberately oversold as a medication, deliberately so by people whose primary objective is drug legalisation.  Nations should be cautious and should not be seduced by extravagant and unscientific claims by noisy lobbyists.  ~  David Raynes

This inevitable drug rush is because marijuana’s healing properties come from its high cannabidoil (CBD) content and critical levels of medical terpenes, flavonoids, and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).  CBD, won’t get you high, but THC certainly will.  Actually, there are more than 100 cannabinoids in marijuana ~ doctors and scientists don’t know what effect some of these potent chemicals have on the human brain and body.

Nevertheless, medicinal marijuana does show some slightly positive effects in treating certain psychological problems, and the pain from illness such as degenerative neurological disorders.  Allegedly, medicinal marijuana helps ease pain, nausea and loss of appetite in people with HIV and cancer, and it just might help people with epilepsy or multiple sclerosis.  It’s the CBD and THC that has these beneficial effects.

What THC does is make your brain release dopamine ~ the pleasure chemical, and to be honest, that’s why everyone uses pot, even the people who take it for ‘medicinal’ reasons.  You will get high if you take cannabis for any reason ~ you will feel more relaxed, happier, and probably sleepy.  You may also have hallucinations, delusions, short term memory loss, paranoia ~ and if you have pneumonia or bronchitis those illnesses will suddenly get a lot worse.

Cannabis does more harm than good, even when taken for medical reasons.  New medical guidelines have been issued in Canada, (where cannabis is legal), warning that the negative effects of the weed far outweigh the minor benefits it has for most illnesses.  The Canadian Family Physician journal states that in the few conditions where cannabis is helpful the effects are only marginally better than a placebo.

This Canadian guidance states that there is little evidence that cannabis could help many patients at all, and that the downsides far exceed the potential benefits.

Marijuana very strong stuff, especially the more potent types grown now, and its effects last a very long time.  You will still be suffering from the after-effects of using pot four weeks later.  Pot is addictive, and it’s also a gateway drug to worse things such as cocaine and heroin.

Marijuana is damaging and dangerous.  If you use marijuana a lot you will probably get one or more serious mental illnesses like schizophrenia, anxiety and depression, memory problems, have difficulty with coordination, distortions in your sense of time and space, and have suicidal thoughts.  Your work, social life, and interpersonal relationships will suffer.  You will do risky and stupid things.  To top it off, marijuana damages unborn babies too.

The real reason anyone uses cannabis is to experience the instant gratification of a THC / Dopamine rush.  Anyone who craves instant gratification is immature and nowhere near being a balanced, grown up, grounded, and together person.  They care little about the future, themselves, or anyone else.  They have no real life outside of feeding their own wants, needs, and desires.  They are unlikely to ever get well until they first learn to cure their own need for instant pleasures.  This applies to anyone who demonstrates little self-control.

If you really want to turn into a Mr. Hyde, then smoke pot.

et elle fume pour la prouver.

the fog of uncertainty

Life is an unending struggle at the edge of uncertainty.

Some say that nothing is certain in this life except death and taxes.  And, that we should live in the moment, taking what joy there is to be had.  All I know is that a little certainty sometimes would go a long way.  Worrying about things that may happen is to create pointless pain.

Over the past few days I have been struggling to make sense of a relationship that’s important to me, and my introspection and deliberation hasn’t gone so well.  Either I just do not understand my friend and why she does things, or I do not understand women at all, or both.  It’s probably both.

My friend is taking a trip to England ~ going on a retreat in the Cotswolds with a weird self-improvement group.  Her first trip to England isn’t to visit me, it’s to be with her group.  That doesn’t make me feel good, it makes me feel very second-best.  What my friend is going to do by taking this trip to England to see a bunch of other people hurts me more than just a lot.  Anyhow, I hate groups.  Most small groups revel in their self-righteous and introspective stupidity.

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.  ~  Martin Luther King.

In general I don’t much like the self-righteous people who join groups, and I don’t like group mentality.  I would not join any group / association / society/ club that would willingly have me as a member.  I firmly believe that groups create a vicious ‘them and us’ mentality, especially closed groups, and I despise that.  It disgusts me.  I firmly believe that groups close off outsiders and that people develop unhealthy relationships within the group.  The whole group ethos sickens me.

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.  ~  Friedrich Nietzsche

Groups can and do operate to unhealthy norms.  Group members will continue to conform to norms that are quite harmful rather than healthy, even norms that run counter to society’s accepted standards of behaviour.  Members of small groups can find their behaviour unconsciously regulated in a way which is not good for their physical, mental, and spiritual health due to pluralistic ignorance.

Sex, drugs, and pluralistic ignorance: smart groups do dumb things.  ~  Geoff Cohen

Pluralistic ignorance is a shared delusion common in small groups.  A small group can engage in systematic barbaric, harmful, hurtful, and uncaring behaviour ~ even though the individual members of the group may be good people in their own right.  The members of small groups are amoral within the group, they tend to drink too much, smoke too much, use drugs, and engage in casual sex, all within the group, and those self-destructive behaviours can become the group norm.  I know, I’ve seen it happen.

Sometimes most people in a group will disagree with the group norm, but nobody will ever speak out.  Groupthink is a powerful thing, it’s what creates a mob mentality, a cult mentality, a harmful and poisonous bunch of people.  The list of destructive groups is long and painful.

No one believes, but everyone thinks that everyone believes.  ~  Tricia Wang.

I do not like this situation, I do not like that my friend’s first trip to England is to be with a ‘group’, and it’s making me very unhappy, which is stupid.  Unhappiness should not be endured, it should be cured.

I can do nothing about some things.  I can’t try to stop my friend from being in a group she says is valuable to her self-development.  But I fear that this situation will end badly and painfully.  Yet, I cannot change other people and what they do.  I cannot even change what happens to me.  All I can change is myself.  All I can do is be the best guy I can possibly be; accepting, considerate, kind, reliable, and understanding.  All I can do is be there for my friend.

What are you longing for most in life?

Sexual desire is impervious to sense and reason.

What am I longing for most in life?  That’s a hard question  It’s one of the questions in the Dreambook and Planner a friend sent to me.

That question made me think a lot, as it should have.  I don’t have an answer as yet.

The thing is I have some easy answers, guy type answers, and of course more and better sex is an easy answer for a guy.

It’s disturbing for me that friendship and love seem more important to me right now than monochromatic lust.  Lust and sex are transient, love and friendship are permanent things.  As I guy I think I should be more into casual sex.

But I do love black and white pictures of attractive women.  Why monochromatic?  It is so much sexier.

 

And why do women who smoke turn me on?  That’s weird too.
