From the mind of critic: “If balance is the key to life, and guaging authenticity of thought to reality on the ground is the key to emotional stability, what is the key to our personal search for truth? Does balancing microcosms within a macrocosm within all our macrocosms, within everybody else’s macrocosms, provide black and white, step by step, chronological instructions? Does ignorant unconsciousness provide a blissful image of what we believe to be our reality, but is actually created by moneychangers to control us? Does finding a middle ground between knowing what’s going, not knowing and not getting hung up on outcomes, provide leeway to make on the spot, pragmatic decisions for our highest good? Does labeling an idea or living it, hinder or enhance our evoution? Understanding that language means everything and nothing at the same time, means we’re open minded and joyful, not egotistical and cynically self sabotaging. If we want to locate our path, we can’t be so fixated on an idea, that we paint all others as lies. What we believe to be our truth, could be a wolf in sheeps clothing, that’s blocking us from our actual truth. We must be open to possibilities, if we wanna evolve. Believing we’re the center of the universe, proves we’re the exact opposite. Authentic balance, means knowing definitions change from person to person. To search for truth, means being ready to find it.” 🙂

From the mind of critic: “If a sporting event goes into sudden death, do we get excited because the name entails only one side will make it alive? Are we let down when one side finnaly ends it, and both sides may be extremely tired, but leave with the same numbers they started with? Do we feign excitement because although sudden death is deplorable to us, we keep our mouths shut for fear we’ll become sudden death’s newest forced competitor? Do we feign disgust, because although sudden death excites the most primal of our animal instincts, we keep our mouths shut for fear we’ll be pegged as the monsters we really are, but have yet to admit? Now obviously games that use the term sudden death to refer to overtime, are marketed to the basest of our base levels as beings at the top of the food chain. We must ask why this is, and how much society would be different if we didn’t use overt and covert coded language. Is the increase of violent attacks linked to our metastisizing numbness of violent language, let alone school shootings, which many believe nothing can be done about? Once we realize the glorification and increasing monetization of violence causes some of us to believe it’s okay to commit, we’ll see that if we can’t even treat the symptoms, we sure as hell won’t find a cure. When labels are placed without critical thought, violence will surely follow. Numbness to society isn’t a coping mechanism, it’s ignorance. Language might not mean anything, but it means everything. We stop violence, by walking the walk.” 🙂

From the mind of critic: “If we acheive what we didn’t think possible, are we skeptical of the outcome? Did we believe it had such a low probability of happening, that we never got our hopes up? Did these low expectations cause our low enthusiasm, when we should be happy we succeeded at something that took great effort? Does the switch from not very likely to definitely happening present great difficulty, or are we allowing our self sabotage to destroy what should be cause for great celebration? Acheiving our goals should always be cause for celebration, even if our overworked and sleep deprived mind looks for reasons not to. We must always remember to celebrate triumphs and overcoming hurdles, recognizing we acheived what we set out to do. Sometimes our energy is so burned out from striving, that we don’t have any left for recognition. Sometimes we get so locked into low probabilities, that it’s hard to flip that switch. Maybe we were so sure something wouldn’t happen that we let go of the outcome, which actually raised our chances of success because we weren’t obsessing. Once we realize that balancing positive visualization and letting go of outcomes is the key to success, we’ll see not focusing on results breeds success, and recognizing success breeds more. Letting go of outcomes breed success, which needs recognition to be authentic. Achieving goals, is why we work hard. Self recognition is only egotistical, if we use it to degrade others. Dark tunnels are only scary, if we allow the light at the end to be overshadowed.” 🙂

from the mind of critic-5/16/18

From the mind of critic: “When we decipher the path we’re meant to travel,what motivates us to put one foot in front of the other? Is it the vibrancy of our goals, and how each and every step is laid out in black and white? Is it the vibrancy of our soul, and how each step is measured for whether it leads us forward or backward? Is it the vibrancy of the universe, and how we’re shown objects and events we previously thought impossible? Is it vibrancy at all, or the lack there of? We learn through life experience that there isn’t one thing that motivates us, it’s several, which change over time, and from person to person. Which can make it extremely difficult to decipher what works for us. We can learn from others, but since our experience is unique to theirs by definition, we can’t copy them excatly, which is where critical thinking comes in. Once we realize that the key to finding motivation to work our passion, is inhaling the world’s beauty externally as well as internally, we’ll see that finding our path is only the first step, the second is letting go of outcomes and being true to ourselves as we walk the earth. That second step is the physical embodiment of our motivation, which we define by looking in the mirror. What motivates us, is what feeds our soul. The earth becomes more vibrant, the more authentic we are. Life is like a step ladder that never ends. Realizing motivation morphs as we journey, gives our soul stamina.” 🙂

From the mind of critic: “If we repeat mistakes born of unlearned historical lessons, how can we stop the cycle? Do we force ourselves to be conscious of every thought and interaction, questioning and analyzing until our brain explodes? Do we completely turn off by ignoring everything, letting our ignorance grow through rose colored glasses? Do we find balance, being as consious as we can though understanding, while realizing we aren’t perfect? As students of history, we know historical events repeat themselves because we forget about the buildup, or become apathetic and complacent because the problems have already been solved. There is a certain amount of procrastination bred into us as humans, a feeling that we can always put something off until tomorrow or the next day. Once we realize procrastination comes from a lack of self confidence, we’ll see the more we look at today’s issues and where they sprang, the more those issues become solvable because we believe we’re good enough to have the answer. It may not always be the right answer, but the more we try though human conversation with our suppossed enemy, the more unity we acheive, the more lessons we learn, and the less problems get repeated. Learning lessons is like letting go, it’s a constant process. Over analyzing, births inaction. Learning lessons, means forever asking why. We reduce our ignorance by opening our eyes, and never closing them again.” 🙂

From the mind of critic: “If life came with an instruction manual, would it make our day to day routine easier? Would decisions cease to be difficult, because answers have already been conjured? Would our critical thinking suffer, because with a manual we wouldn’t have to think at all? Do we always look for the easy way out, or just an easier way out? So many tough decisions to make, so many anitquated jerks to deal with, it seems life would be alot easier with step by step instructions. It might be easier, but only in the way ignorance makes life easier by ignoring what’s in front of our face, in favor of an idealized and imaginary portrayal. Once we realize we may want a life manual, but understand one would never exist because of human’s unique nature, we’ll see that everyday and through every experience, we’re creating our own manual by learning lessons and gaining understanding. The only manual for life we need, are the critical thoughts in our head. Ignorance may be the lack of knowledge, but enlightenment is the attainment of knowledge. The easy way out may be appealing, but so is fleeting happiness. Life isn’t always easy, but doesn’t always have to be hard.” 🙂

From the mind of critic: “Did we put our parent’s shoes on when we were kids, because we wanted to practice walking in them? Did we slip our pint size feet into gigantic boots, and realize it was hard to walk around ? Were we trying to emulate our parents, playing around like we were adults? Were we practicing to walk around in our own shoes, by walking around in somebody elses? When we grow up we walk around less and less in other people’s shoes, but when we were little we walked around in all the big people shoes we could find. We didn’t care if they were sandals, boots, sneakers, slippers or galoshes, we put those suckers on and stomped around. It didn’t matter if they were way to big, or what the ethnicity the shoes owner was, we had fun anyway. Once we realize that walking in somebody else’s shoes isn’t a foreign concept because we grew up doing it, we’ll see it’s just one more thing we’ve forgotten about as adults, but something we can relearn anytime we want. Walking in somebody else’s shoes, allows us to view the world through their eyes. Judgement, equals projection. We can’t walk in another’s shoes, before we walk in our own. If we have to walk before we run, we have to think before we walk.” 🙂

From the mind of critic: “If we prejudge a person before we interact with them, is it worse then judging them after? Is judging a person better after we learn their character flaws, or before we learn their quirks? Is judging a person at all whether it’s before or after we get to know them useful at all, or is non judgment the key in uniting disparate groups who have ripped at each other’s throats for generations, because what makes us different makes us the same? All judgement, whether pre or post is wrong. If we have an issue with that statement, we must ask ourselves whether we like being judged. Does it matter if somebody knows us? Does it matter if they have our best interest at heart? There is an exception for actual judges, they are an integral part of our justice system, and are paid accordingly. Prejudging is like claiming your psychic, when you know you’re not. Judge not less ye be judged, could mean we shouldn’t get pissed off unless we want to get pissed on. Appreciating our differences, means not putting each other down for them. Unification will happen, once we look in the mirror and stop judging ourselves.” 🙂

From the mind of critic: “If we can’t be clear headed when we’re angry, can we be angry when we’re clear headed? Can we have angry thoughts, but think about them in a clear way so they don’t manifest into violent and insidious actions? Is the conversion of this anger into action, the key motivation in our forward moving journey? Critical thought is the secret to progress made, lessons learned and growth experienced. The earlier we learn this the better off we’ll be, because although we’ll still have lessons to learn, we won’t have nearly as many. Once we realize that being clear headed or “critically thinking” allows us to think about why we’re angry, instead of not thinking at all, we’ll see how to work through problems, instead of only seeing the problems themselves. Being angry makes us a rebel without a cause, being angrily clear headed makes us a rebel with a cause. Learning why we’re angry, is the first step in overcoming. Converting anger into action only works, if we slow down and clearly think. If anger begets anger and violence begets violence, critical thought begets peaceful evolution.” 🙂

From the mind of critic: “If insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results, is determination defined the same? Does determination mean overcoming odds previously thought impossible, by trying and trying and never giving up? Does being insane mean doing somehting over and over without thinking of process or results, working off pure in the moment animal instincts? Is the only difference between insanity and determination critical thought, or some other subjective adjective? None of us are perfect, none of of us make infallible and omnipotent decisions, no matter how much we espouse the concept. We can be insane at times and we can be determined at times, we can even be insanely determined. Once we realize we’ll never be permanent residents of either side, but we can lean one way more than the other, we’ll see the more we critically think of results, strategy, tactics, optics, passion and self-esteem, the less insane we’ll be, and the more determined we’ll become. Insanity and determination might have the same definition, but they differ from person to person. We’re determined to succeed, when we critically think of how to get there. Insanity and determination depend on perception. Passion can make us insane, if focus eludes us.” 🙂
