Books By Bryan Radzin

A synchronistic journey into the heart of politics and what makes us human.

from the mind of critic-4/21/18

From the mind of critic: “If the ball is in our court, is it completely seperate from all others? Are there infinite courts with infinite unique blueprints working side by side, but 100% independent from each other? Are these infinite unique courts independent but symbiotic, where although they might be designed completely different, they evolve and become better, specifically because they realize not all courts are like them? Are these ever evolving, independent but symbiotic courts seperate entities, yet extremely diplomatic with each other, or do they all make up one bigger court that only operates, because all its smaller courts realize what makes them different, is what makes them the same? We might be different from each other, but we’re not seperate and distinct entities. A block, neighborhood, area, community, village, town, city, county, state, prefecture, province, territory, protectorate, country, continent, world, planet, solar system, galaxy, universe and multiverse only work, if the people and other beings living within them, are able to peacefully coexist not only because they see each other in themselves, but they see how their actions affect all other actions, and realize that if they tear each other down, they’re tearing the whole thing down, while building each other up, builds the whole thing up. If a court operates with a different ball, it’s still a court. Independence and symbiosis can coexist, but only via mutual respect. When we realize we’re equally different, we’re truly equal. We might be yin and yang, but we only complete the circle together.” 🙂

from the mind of critic-4/20/18

From the mind of critic: “Do we smoke em if we have em, or because we can? Do we do everything we can do, specifically because we can? Do we utilize discernment when making decisions, so we do some things because we can, and not do others even though we could? Does our impulse control keep us from making rash decisions, or are we so deprived mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially that we try to do everything all the time, because we fear we’ll miss out or have it taken away? None of us are robots, and not all of our actions will be for our highest good; no matter how much we do or do not try. That said, we don’t have to do anything we don’t wanna do, and we especially don’t have to do anything just because we can. There are many things in life we’re able to do, but that doesn’t mean we should. We could commit murder, robbery and other violent and lacivious acts, but it doesn’t mean we should. That’s an extreme example, but you get my point. The determining factor in our decision making process, should be why are we acting. Asking why, can stop many bad decisions. We can all go down the wrong path, discernment and critical thought keep us on the right one. If we have em we can smoke em, but we don’t have to. Realizing consequences stops bad choices, and ushers good ones.” 🙂

from the mind of critic-4/19/18

From the mind of critic: “If we’ve ever seen the rain coming down on sunny days, have we ever seen the sun shining on rainy days? Do slivers of light always poke through the downpour, or only when we’re wearing a raincoat? Does light always bounce off the rain creating a rainbow, or do we only see it if we’re standing at the right angle? Whether it’s always darkest before the dawn, every cloud has a silver lining, or we’re the people we’ve been looking for, it describes the same concept. Our perceptions guide our thinking, which define whether we see all dark or flecks of light. There’s alot of darkness these days, just like there has always been. There is also a lot of light around, like there has always been. The tricky part is the more light or dark we choose to see, the more that appears. This gives us the false impression there’s more or less, when really the amounts fluctuate constantly. We must remember we control the amount of rain on sunny days, by choosing to be flooded out with darkness, or filled up with light. Rain will always fall on sunny days, unless we allow ourselves to be guided by inner warmth. A concept’s label, is never as imporatnt as its contents. Always expecting the worst, is like wearing a raincoat in 90 degree weather. Things aren’t always as they seem, we evolve when we realize neither are we.” 🙂

From the mind of critic: “If we don’t support corrupt politicians unless they’re on our side, do we support corrupt people if they’re on our side? Do we ignore crime, moral failings and psychopathy in people who think, look and act like us, while paying full credence to people who are different? If no humans are perfect specifically because we’re human, is the hypocrisy expressed in our ugliness, also expressed in our beauty? We aren’t robots, and will make mistakes from time to time. Learning from those mistakes however, is how we stop repeating them over and over. So when we see some politician railing against the opposing party for multiple failings, but ignore or even endorse somebody of the same party for doing the same exact thing, we must ask is this a new thing, or has it been baked in since the beginning? If we answer the former, we clearly don’t pay attention. If we answer the later, we must ask what causes our inner hypocrisy, could we even stop it if we tried? Since politicians come from us, their hypocrisy is our hypocrisy. If we can’t completely delete hypocrisy because we’re not robots, can we lessen it because we’re humans? If our goal is utter perfection, our hypocrisy skyrockets. The ugliness we spew, is equal to the ugliness we feel. Fixing the system by fixing ourselves, means being true to our word.” 🙂

from the mind of critic-4/17/18

From the mind of critic: “Can we recognize our fear of the unknown, without letting it color our thinking? Can we admit we’re scared of unknown outcomes, and still chase our dreams? Is the answer we’re looking for like dust in the wind, or like a careening meteor? Going through a dark tunnel and not physically seeing the light, but imagining it, can be a struggle. It can feel like we’re constructing an ideal world in our mind, we hope plays out in reality. This is when following our heart begins, because although we’re only imagining light, we feel the physical effects. Problems arise when following our heart is what we’ve always been told must be done, so we hone our skills in the trade, only to find out we still need to pay our bills. The obvious goal is to pay our bills while simultaneously following our heart, but that doesn’t always happen, and can often pull us in oppostie directions, which exacerbates our fear of the unknown because our mind spins out of control. We mustn’t give up on following our heart however no matter how stressed, scared or anxious we are, about what may or may not happen. This when we have to keep our eyes on the prize, by moving in the right direction no matter how fruitless it may seem. Letting go of outcomes, means letting go of obsessions. Paying bills and following our heart can be symbiotic, we just have to figure out how. We can make the unknown a roadblock, or a speed bump. Things may or may not work out, but we’ll never know unless we try.” 🙂

from the mind of critic-4/14/18

From the mind of critic: “If we put ourselves out there and get little to no response, how do we keep our spirits up? Do we remember why we put ourselves out there and the passion behind it, which instantly reminds us what’s important? Does our good nature take control, overpowering our self sabotage? Do we forget why we put ourselves out there if we get no response, or no attendess at an event, because we’re overcome by emotion that we’re not good enough? Do our joyful or sorrowful feelings depend on outside influence, or inside consciousness? It takes courage to take part of our soul, and share it with the universe. We’re laid bare for all the world to see, and we could recievce positive, negative or nonexistent feedback. This can happen through all mediums of art, as well as interpersonal relationships. We must ask ourselves if we’re laying it out there specifically to get a response, or to give ourselves purpose? If the answer is the later, we still want responses, especially if those responses lead to success with our art and relationships. However, those responses aren’t determinant of a continuance of putting purselves out there, because we started with purpose. Response doesn’t give us purpose, we give ourselves purpose. Self sabotage is born, from believing outside response gives us purpose. Putting ourselves out there doesn’t guarantee success, but it gives us a shot. We can’t win it if we’re not in it, is one of the secrets of life.” 🙂

From the mind of critic: “If we’re nicer to others when we’ve taken care of ourselves, does the same concept extend to nations? If a government is good to its people by building them all up instead of tearing any of them down, is it less likely to exploit and persecute its neighbors? If a governement builds up some of its people while tearing down others, does it in turn play its allies of its enemies, so it can reap all the benefits for its geo-political interests? Is the reason we have a government with socialistic and capitalistic principles, because niether system works on its own? Being the change we want to see, couldn’t be any more true now than at any point in history. Being good to ourselves specifically so we can be good to others, is how we create a better government, because the government is us. Then if the government started taking care of its people, it would partner with governments who see more than just dollar signs. Once we see how many problems can be solved by seeing each other in ourselves, we’ll see that when governments see other governments in themselves, how much less war, genocide and ethnic cleansing there would be, because because governments would feel they were attacking themselves. If looking in the mirror is helpful for self reflection, it’s helpful for governments. Building up instead of tearing down, builds humanity, and even better governments. Low self esteem invites zero critical thinking, so does narcissm. When building a better system, it’s important to look at all variables, not just the familiar.” 🙂

from the mind of critic-4/12/18

From the mind of critic: “When we’re mentally and physically tired, are we aware of how our perceptions change?Does our filter that keeps us from descending into mental darkness, fray when we’re drained? Does this shrinking filter give us a more accurate picture, because our bullshit limit has shrunk? Does a shrinking filter give us a less accurate picture, because our self sabotage has grown? Is physical and mental energy in opposition, or symbiotic? Being drained is never fun, becasuse running on fumes is when things can go horribly wrong. Sometimes adrenaline kicks in which focuses us more, but it can also make us beat ourselves up more, because we have less patience for anything not perfect. If taking care of ourselves is how we succeed, it’s even more important when we’re drained, because self sabotage devolves much quicker. Once we realize how important self kindness is to achieving when we’re upbeat, we’ll see how vital it is when we’re zapped. How kind we are to ourselves, is equal to how well we take care of ourselves. Being drained leads to darkness, only if we’re trying to operate like we aren’t. Filters can shrink, but our self kindness mustn’t. Realizing interconnectedness, defines our path forward.” 🙂

from the mind of critic-4/11/18

From the mind of critic: “If self hate mutates into hate of others, does self love evolve into love for others with or without personal effort? Can we care for and respect others, without caring for and respecting ourselves? Are we afraid if we take care of ourselves, we won’t have time for others? Does self care feel selfish? If what we say to ourselves determines what we do to ourselves, does the hate or love we express to others, spell out to the letter what we do to ourselves? Looking in the mirror can be scary, especially if it’s been awhile. We can get so used to our routine, that we forget or make ourselves believe we don’t have time for introspection. We must ask ourselves if we really are too busy, or if we’re ignoring our own reality? Loving ourselves can do wonders for our soul, but we have to be careful. If we don’t share the love we’ve built up within, it will eventually ring hollow because it has no purpose. This feeling of no purpose is where self hate, and in turn hate for others springs from. Admission of weaknesses and limitations are hard, but it’s how we build authentic strength. Realizing life’s magnetism, guides our actions in the right direction. Truth isn’t always easy, but it’s righteous. We stop self love from devolving into narcissism, by loving others as we love ourselves.” 🙂

from the mind of critic-4/10/18

From the mind of critic: “If we can’t change everything that happens only our reactions, is being willing to go where the wind takes us how we succeed? Is adjusting to shifting sands, how we destroy preconceptions? Do we float along in the wind, because we don’t have any control over where we’d end up, only how we can make the best of things when we land? Do we float in the wind because surprises bombard us on a daily basis, and how we react determines whether we simply make the best of something, or realize success is in the eye of the beholder, which randomly changes? Critical thinking is the most important tool in our tool kit, to help when our mind plays tricks on us. Honestly percieving what’s in front of us, determines whether we take positive or negative steps. Once we realize that going whichever way the wind blows means adaptation not absent-mindedness depending on our perception, we’ll see that believing in ourselves will lead to success, and understanding success can change forms mid-stream will get us there. We’re never lost, we just might not be where we thought we’d end up. Unexpected detours can wreak havoc, but only if our priorities are unknown. To know what we can and cannot change, requires a willingness to go whichever way the wind blows. Success will find us if we keep looking. Success can change our perceptions, and vice versa.” 🙂
