Want to learn something today?

28 Sep

We are all writing something.  Especially when we’re not actually writing—

All moments are tied in some way.

What happens in a classroom is a microcosm for ‘out there’.  That’s why this matters.

You learn by teaching yourself and letting the moment education you on YOU.

Kerouac reminds us that there’s more than just ‘so much to learn out there’, as so many say.  By saying “so much”, you infer a quantity, a set amount.  Knowledge is always immune to limit, number, anything set.

When reading…

18 Sep

As I’ve said, read further into the text.  And I know, that sounds like teacher gibberish.  But it’s not.  It’s one thing to read, and another to UNDERSTAND.  To not only identify what’s being said on the page but feel it as well and either align the words with your own life or identify the dominant ideas and see how they could provoke someone else to thought, or perhaps even action.  Write in the margin, note what you’ve identified, felt.  You’re not just reading, you’re living.  In someone else’s world, life, sight and place.

You have your reality and stage the

And you deserve that.

You deserve everything.

Known that.

If you can’t sleep,

25 Aug

find some way to get closer to your ultimate aim.  If you want to travel or finish a book, star in some headlining play or start a catering company, open a business of your own or just rewrite your life in some way… use the time you’re unable to sleep to capitalize on your abilities.  And, having some grand goal is an ability.  So many have no idea what they want, and that’s okay.  And if you’re someone who has no idea yet what you want, use the sleeplessness to think, or brainstorm possibilities in a journal, or on pieces of scratch paper.  Hang them on some board that you’ll always see, or in some area of your domicile that you everyday pass, preferably in the morning before you walk out into the day.  Though, if you’re someone who has a goal, some apexing reality you hope to taste, don’t squander this inability to shut eyes.  It’s a gift, an invitation to work, undisturbed.  Use it.  So many see sleeplessness as a burden, a pain, annoying.  I understand.  What I’m recommending is another perspective, an alternate attitude.  See what happens.  In fact, don’t “see what happens”.  Make something happen.

It’s dark, it’s quiet, it’s yours.  Take full possession and command of it.
