Thinking out loud

The moneyless man demo

This track is about those who are subject to poverty and to those who believe that money makes the world go around! There are other models of living and it’s time to educate people about alternative lifestyles that do work! The track is available to purchase on bandcamp for £0.70. (Ironic I know)

Lyrics:

You said your life is just a joke my friend,
No cash to burn and no cash to spend.
In this world where money’s everything…

That’s not the way to be…
If you want to take your life back follow me!

To walk away from any sense of freedom
After all you’ve seen, said and done.
Your a fool beneath the words you wear

No, That’s not the way to be…
If you want to take your life back follow me!

Forget everything that you have learned
From the teachers that teach greed and hurt.
It’s time to learn humility on earth.

So, walk away whilst you have the key…
Unlock the only door to reality!

Grow your own food and let nature give
Independence from the current life you live
When all is done and money falls behind.

Yeah, this is how it should be…
If you want to take your life back follow me!

You said your life is just a joke my friend,
No cash to burn and no cash to spend.
In this world where money’s everything…

I said that’s alright with me…
If you want to waste your life then let it be!

Novel is writing itself…

Well I hit twenty thousand words a couple of days ago and It was one of the greatest feelings ever! To feel and see progress with something that has become one of the hardest things I have had to do during my 21 years here!

I can see and feel myself getting better at writing as I move on and I have set my deadline to March 2013 which has motivated me to getting it finished, hopefully proofread and independently published!

I am getting extremely excited at the prospect of holding it in my hands for the first time, but that feeling can wait… I have over forty thousand more words to write for it to be considered a novel, so the race is on!

A lot of my personal feelings and philosophies have so far been influencing the storyline so its going to be strange reading it back for the first time. It’ll be like reading my own mind… Weird!

Here is a quote from the book to keep you interested:

“Power corrupts those that are weak to its forgiving nature. For some are helpless to their lesser urges of curiosity and temptation. A tragic human condition, which has led to our disastrous dismissal from nature as a species. The lack of uniformity and empathy that is encouraged by this closed system of take and take drives my longing for justice, true justice.”

Why cross a bridge when you can build one?

evolutionThere have been many moments in my life where I have just thought, what on earth am I doing? Whether it was a job or being associated with a circle of friends. These are the moments you need to just sit down and think, what am I going to do to get past this? How am I going to progress and learn as a person?

The truth is, the only way is to do… From experience if you find yourself unhappy in a situation, get out of it as soon as possible. Don’t just sit there and feel sorry for yourself because ultimately it is you, who has gotten yourself into this situation… Think about the long term effects instead of the short term. If it is a job that you hate, use it as motivation to get a new one, one that you feel comfortable in and find enjoyment out of! If you have the necessary skills, start a business and be your own boss!

If you look around and think there is nothing out there for me to do… You are just limiting yourself. Why would you want to fit into a predetermined role in society anyway, why be someone that you know you aren’t for the benefit of those around you? It is just going to become a vicious cycle of unhappiness and ignorance.

Instead, think of ways in which you can use your strengths, ways in which you can learn and gain skills to achieve what you want in life.

Why cross a bridge when you can build one?
