The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 237

March 2, 2021 How dark are the times? Is it as tough as the headlines are saying? An avenue of constant change. The breaking down of a generation of digital achievers only to start hearing of the tale of how no success is possible without facing the fear, the failure, frustration and friction. Innovation comes from facing the storm not running from it. Such thinking puts me inside my forest in south Charlotte, NC. A collection of trees that’ve been with me going on twenty nine years. The...

Mystical mismatches that collaborate in an age of mindless misery. How else can you describe the mental acceptance of how we got to this moment of Now?

Allow it to be messages from afar and today you chose to listen.

Stream Thinking Almost

March 1, 2021 In June of 1980 there weren’t smart phones to document the moments we’d carry through every decade invited to participate with. Sure, there were tape recorders and heavy as hell movie cameras but nothing in the way of what we have today. I wish there could’ve been a way to fully document what the commencement speaker said during graduation. The only thing I hold is a memory. He warned us, empowered us, found reason to believe with us.”100 people are born on the same day you...

Calming The Censors

February 26, 2021 I’d love to be a fly on the wall. To watch the way people wake up. I know how silly and whacked out I must look. That first step of the morning might as well be on Mars, “NASA the lack of gravity is making me feel a little wobbly.” I honestly find incredible joy in waking up at 4:30am. Probably because I’m usually meditating at 3:00am. Nidra is some pretty powerful stuff. Through patience and the art of listening the journey becomes your physical walk on earth. But hey...
