The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 100

Each of us are introverts. The digital age has turned us into travelers to very far places without taking a step in any direction. The moment someone puts a little pressure on our system of choice the idea of correcting the corners of the jagged circle is put aside. That's when the imagination is fed some pretty incredible plastic food on the digital device so willing to share its treasure chest of booty. If we truly are connected to so much information then why aren't we activating what's...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 99

The slightest things change my direction of choice. It's not that I'm always studying the GPS of life but rather I want to make sure that everything I am creating forward has a purpose and plan. Maybe it's a generational thing. In my twenties I didn't care about the ticks on a clock and what happens when you allow most of them to fall off the wall into memories that fade with the rising of a new sun. The older I got the more I realized none of this is about me. The art of the performance...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 98

A simple but healthy thought fell into my process of growth the other day: It's all around you. Why aren't you taking notes? We take in so much mentally on a daily basis who would ever think that sitting down with a writing instrument and documenting it would carry worth with its weight? I'm the type of numb skull that wants to know why birds sing while its raining. Humans do all they can to bust free of the gray sky and bury themselves in a hot new television show or reason to run off to...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 97

I've always been fascinated by the view of the creative mind. How living in the future makes a great connection for the collector or buyer to one day catch up. I use a painted rock found on a mountain trail as an example. How much did the artist know before letting the stone go? So often the creative spirit wants to be picky about who gets what's been released from their imagination. It's a protection thing. Nobody wants to be judged. It takes too long to recover. Yet artists have this...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 96

Perception feels like a word that best represents assumption. Not so... says "Perception is the ability to see, hear or become aware of something through the senses." Whereas assumption is accepted as true or as something that is certain to happen without there being proof. I don't know if it's funny or a lack of common sense but we invest in both words like it's a hot commodity. Only to face the price of disconnection at the destination. Through awareness we might see what...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 95

We face those walls all too many times. I still can't figure out why we don't just turn and walk away. Unless it's because there have been several times in our everyday challenges where the grass has been greener on the other side. But getting back becomes the lifelong challenge that feels like defeat. Now lets turn it around. What if we are deciding not to cross through to the other side of the wall? We've decided that we are comfortable right where we are. But God wants you and needs you...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 94

I think we learn early on that brothers and sisters aren't truly wired to get along. Too often though what drove us crazy as kids actually creates a lifelong wedge. One week becomes twenty plus years. Through hardheadedness and or just ego we agree to disagree to live in peace without having to deal with each others weight. Pauly Shore talked about this a few years back and he was extremely serious and strong with his word when he said, "You need to fix this right now. Because there's...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 93

The depths that we travel aren't always by way of choice. We can try to erase the paths that invited the moment to unfold but the elements that create purpose find their way back to the forefront of reason. Lets be honest. We all endure seasons. But do we learn from the steps taken or try to rebuild the trail to better suit how we accept the day or night? The answers are always there. We just have this way of always wanting to be the editor. Pay closer attention not to your vision and or...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 92

For the longest time we've been this generation of laughing other peoples failures away. We see a troublesome spot on life's everyday highway and most people do all they can to steer clear of the clutter. I'm reminded of the multiple times a community of farmers in Wyoming chose to work together during branding and hay bailing season. It was nearly next to impossible to accomplish any work as a solo performer in those fields. And yet today it's become such an individualized sport to find...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 91

We hear it a lot these days. People openly admitting "I'm a little low on faith." What exactly does that mean? Should we have been built with needles and dashboards that measure how much fluid or faith we have inside our mind body and soul? Hearing that someone has lost faith has always grabbed my attention. What were you doing to find yourself in a position of choice? Because isn't that what a lack of faith is? Having faith is encouraging but if it's falling short of meeting your demands...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 90

I recently shared with a friend, "While trying to prevent a storm I actually created one." Selected words from two days earlier were misinterpreted and it led to some serious judgement. There seems to be a lot of that going around. Instead of putting focus on the purpose and plan, we've developed this new habit of giving what we feel permission to rein over all things developed. No matter how far off the truth it is, our heart and brain see it as actuality. Instead of offering an open door...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 88 mp3

Yeah yeah I know. Be great at one thing. Interestingly enough those that put focus only on what they assume is their talent or gift tend to shrivel up and blow away with the wind. No day passes that you aren't given brilliant new ideas and paths. We choose to set them aside because it doesn't fit into the realm of your current business success. That's when I bravely say to friends, "Then stop complaining about your job." Apple and Samsung can't stand each other. Because they're pretty much...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 86

The story beyond the story. The lessons learned while marching through the storms of everyday. While studying Martial Arts I learned very quickly that winning is a choice. Sounds like a tool of insurance more than assurance. Learning to live that path helped me embrace the unexpected while celebrating the carefully planned out. Then when life takes a swing at you the forest student steps back into the circle and realizes the importance of learning. I didn't learn how to kick, block and...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 85

If I were to truly explain what this entry is about you'd judge the book by it's cover. In fact if you have a difficult time dealing with reality I suggest you don't pull your vehicle in. Life is a series of changes and challenges, victories and reasons to grow outward a quarter inch at a time. We love to pull things toward us without realizing at any given moment it can be taken away. But how do you deal with it? Anger? Depression? Do you instantly get locked up on new vices that send...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 84

I recently sat in the forest paying close attention to the changing of the leaves. Slowly one by one they'd drift to the earth below. I love to people watch. There's a dance that we do during times of challenge and or reasons to want to grow forward. Body language says a lot and most of the time those carrying the message have no clue what they're sending out. During those bouts with doubt and or shame where does the energy come to remain faithfully strong and unbent? Where do you locate...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 83

These are some trying times. So many unexpected headlines and business decisions causing horrible shades of stress leading to fear. How can we survive the attacks inside an age of where it's OK to tell employees to work free of charge during overtime hours? Society bounces back in ways that make very dark headlines. That in itself causes fear to pop its shell and begin a process of growing roots. World leaders with potty mouths and no desire to back off. It's all there! Every reason to...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 82

I was moved by a thought that filled my heart while talking to a legend in music. It flooded my process to the point of taking the words into the forest. I wanted to better understand why in the center of such an incredible conversation something so moving leaped into my heart and then onto a page. The weird thing about being a writer. What once moved you has a way of steering you toward deeper waters and valley floors. As much as I was inspired by the short little paragraph that touched...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 81

I've spent a lot of time in mediation studying what it means to live in the presence of the present. There's a huge amount of energy waiting to be tapped into. But too often we allow the outside world to crack the code. Putting focus on being in the present allows the movement of all things to become part of your awareness. There are large amounts of natural songs being given birth while putting colors in the sky that no maker of paint can copy or erase. Growing within the shapes and shade...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 80

We keep hearing how there's too much noise in the world. So much so world leaders are building devices and shooting them off into space just so people can hear his voice. But what happens when chance and opportunity put you inside a forest. Not just any collection of trees but rather on this particular day everything within the limbs and leaves was completely silent. You were sent to sit in the forest not to listen to your heart or study the incredible art of a far out creator. Your...


The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 79

Science has gotten really good at predicting weather. Through man made technology we can spot a collection of swirling clouds days away from where we presently stand. So often I hear people talk about unexpected things always creating storms in their personal lives. It's followed with, "I never saw it coming." But we can predict the storms. The paths are laid out hours and sometimes days in advance. We choose not to listen to the signals. Being a daily writer I'm able to view word...
