This beautiful work of art was found in Kensington Market. I smile whenever I pass by.

Light a single candle!

Hi Everyone!

I have been away for a long time. But that's okay. Here are some photos I have collected of the Grafiti we have in Toronto. By the way, most of my pictures were taken in the same area: Kensington Market. A lot more grafiti exists and I will be finding it and putting up pictures here soon.

All the best!

So to begin:

Toronto has some interesting Grafiti to showcase. I will upload a picture each day and write something small about it.

Rather than lift your voice in a thousand laments at the encroaching darkness, light a single candle!!  From "Courage" by Daisaku Ikeda.

This corner-store at College Street loves to take my money but at night I always pass by this candle and feel safe. Thank you

Opening the door, a breeze pushed the world forward. Walking through the doorway, a smile crossed my lips. I saw a cat licking its paws. The cat looked up and said, "Meow."

I continued walking, looking deeply for a meaning to give my life. There I had everything, and was waiting for a way to make my life mean something. Today This meaning is to bring forth a change. Toes. These toes of mine are connected to my eyes and mind. I can sense them. They are part of me. Just where do they point? My hand, it is precisely the tool that has the power to make my life. I am my hand. My hand is me. The brain is centred around my fingers and my choices flow from my fingers to my eyes. I am the life force that is coursing through the lungs that breathe fresh air. I am alive.

Laser Beam Focus

I am attempting to maintain laser beam focus on achieving goals that can only be done through identifying and facing the fears that lead to diverging thoughts and procrastinating behaviours. I have some mantras such as:

  • Couchlock: This phrase helps to identify when I am locked into a couch staring into the face of a computer screen and especially useful when I have to use that information to get out of my trance and get to work.
  • It's taking too long, start again: When the procrastination process of diverging thoughts has led to so many new branches away form the initial intended action that I need to remind myself to start again. Quite useful 
  • Laser Beam Focus: A term to remind myself to be focused on my goals
  • 100% : A phrase I think to myself when I ask myself, "How could I get a 100% on this assignment?" And then I do better at the task. Generally a good anti-laziness phrase.

New Direction :

This blog is changing direction. I have deleted several posts from here which were written under a different time and space and sense of self which I don't relate to any more.

The blog was an experiment and I hope that the writings that have remained can be appreciated for their value as a learning tool.

I am going to take this blog in a new direction or it will just stay static as it is now.

Thanks for reading.

I am bored

"I am bored"

You are bored? Then breathe. Breathe and look around. Be alive in the moment. Your boredom is the fabric of your mind being shaken by the waves of subconscious images that fly through your eyes at light speed without you even knowing that; causing boredom in waves upon waves. You might imagine that being on a boat and each wave making you want to look to a different direction which is your boredom physically moving you left right and center. It is rare to see this happen in slow motion, but you can notice it if you pay attention.

However your breathing calms the waves and so then automatically breathing with an intention to be at peace and calm brings you to experience the reality in front of you instantaneously. So breathe. Then you won't be bored, because the waves will be weak, and you will float to your destination no matter how strong your outside waves are, because your inside waves are calm/

When you experience your reality, either through inebriation (temporary and forgotten) or by being truly alive and reclaiming the most powerful force in your universe (breath, and that of your mind,) by breathing you can use your mind to do something useful: Which is to assess your immediate surrounding and be alive in that moment of assessment. Even while your subconscious repeatedly assails you with images that drive your actions and cause you to believe you have an active role in the voluntary actions that when looked at deeply can be seen to be a product of an involuntary image. That is, the involuntary voluntary life-style you're living is actually your own choice, but not under your conscious control. Unconscious choices and boredom. Breathe actively, and combat these illnesses.

Reclaim breath, and reclaim life. Your mind is your tool. Consciousness is the creator.

{ps: this is consciousness talking to me. I am sharing this with people who might be slightly interested in it, not intended as a commentary on your life. I am talking about my own.}

enlightenment

Thinking is the most time consuming activity I don't do every day.
Thinking is the most time consuming activity I do every day.

Words make pictures and pictures make words. Thoughts are words, that come from pictures. Emotions are feelings, that come from pictures. Noises make pictures, pictures can make noises. I am a picture, magnified into thought, projected into form.

Intention is the currency of my current life. Intention is your currency too. Find that and find the lever to hold your weight on the fulcrum of the images you use and invent.

Good Luck
