America should not invade countries.

America should not support criminals and non-democratic nations.

America should not meddle in the affairs of other countries.

America should not strip human beings of their right to self-determination, national sovereignty, and autonomy.

America should assess its self and recognize its foreign policies as major contributors and causes of anti-americanism, anti-westernism, and other manifestations of ideological fanaticism and political violence.

America should renounce right-wing extremism and embrace liberal, individualistic, genuine western values.

 

On the Road to Salvation


I feel the change that I want coming. Deep down I know I can’t bear life like this any longer. God is working. Time is moving. My heart is beating. My friends are with me, my family’s watching. What is coming? My dream I hope — the ability to afford all that I please to afford, and the cause being that I am a successful artist in many realms of existence. God grant me this, and I ought open up the world the doors of my perception in hopes of receiving the fateful fulfillment I yearn for endlessly.

Cowardice


I can’t figure it out. Who am I? I know there are things I want more than others. People are very easily irritated by this question because in this day and age everything is based on the assumption that you are talking to someone who is undeserving of your attention. Most people only follow because they aren’t humble. They’d rather wait to determine for themselves what is cool. I’m tired. Will I release music? And all these people who want to benefit off me instead of enjoy my company. Bah, cowards.

individualism


Individualism is scarce. I love when I come upon it. It is peaceful, when it is in me and when it is in those around me. It is beautiful.

O Daniel.


what do you do when you love some thing, and you want some thing, and it is there but you are too afraid to go for it? you say, I trust in you my Lord, that the reason why I want this, is because of you.

He Yelled At Her, They Act Unkind


We live in a world of fakeness, pretentiousness, dishonesty, and shame.

Stop looking for my flaws. I already know I’m not perfect — I just think you don’t realize you aren’t.

Unplugged


Tonight has been a special night. I haven’t felt like this in years. Thank God I do. I haven’t felt this free in a while.

What happened was strange.

I kind of experienced a mental breakdown.

It started with these mental storms that I could not handle. I couldn’t stop thinking. I couldn’t.

I did not have control of my mind. It was as if my mind was a slave to itself. Whatever it wanted to do, it would, and I would let it.

But suddenly it hit me.

After hours of laying in bed and thinking and thinking and thinking, it clicked.

My mind was enslaved by the things I wanted. As a result, it could not be itself. It could not be what it was intended to be – a faculty for reasoning, knowledge, wisdom, beauty, meaning, and happiness.

But I was not giving my mind those things. Instead, I was feeding it meaninglessness.

It was like a trade off. If I wanted to continue desiring certain things, whatever they be, then I would have to sell my mind (soul) to meaninglessness.

Kind of reminds me of the movie the Matrix.

In the movie, humanity was enslaved to a system that satisfied their desires. That system is called the Matrix. Those who did not unplug themselves from the Matrix – or, the fake world – were slaves to their desires, whereas Neo, Trinity and Morpheus (and their gang) were not. They were free.

They became free when they discerned the meaningless of the physical world and all the pleasures that come with it. True existence, they realized, lies in the spiritual world, or the world of the forms, as the ancient Greek philosopher Plato calls it. The world of the forms is where we find things like compassion, love, patience and other virtues.

But that’s not to say that the physical world doesn’t matter. It does. What I am saying here is simply that the intangible world means much more. It has much more meaning.

Therefore, the spiritual world should always sit higher on our priority list than the material world. Otherwise we become shallow, and ultimately, meaningless. It’s sad really, to think that we human beings, distinct from other animals with our free will, can reduce ourselves to animals and become enslaved to instinct and impulse.

What I decided tonight is that I prefer to be unplugged. I prefer to be free and enlightened instead of ignorant and enslaved. I prefer chasing truth over money, meaning over material, virtue over vice.

Just remember, it’s okay to have fun and enjoy the physical world too. But never let your desires alter your perception of reality. If ever you feel like a choice you are about to make is going to negatively alter your perception of reality, it’s because it is.
