It’s F***ing Sad to Watch

And we’re running out of time


Now, more than ever, we need connection…


And not only connection to humans and individuals


It’s much more complicated than that from what I can see


The global economy we’ve created is challenging us more than ever


But it’s not challenging us the way it should be, it’s breaking us down instead


And pushing many of you down the dangerous path of pleasure


Even worse, many of you are seeking instant pleasure


Where there is nearly no connection at all


But instead, a “sense” of connection


Which confuses both of us


But not anymore…


Are You Bored?


Hopefully not yet


And you’re still with me


Now, seriously, think about it…


Think about the last time you were bored


Shit, maybe it’s why you are reading this blog post


But if you think about that last moment, what did you do?


How did you break yourself from the boredom that you were feeling?


From my own personal experience, this is when I look for the path of pleasure


Whether it’s Netflix, music, food, a joint, a drink, sex…it’s pleasure


Could be different for you, but reading can even be pleasure


So, why don’t we ask ourselves the tough questions


For example, why am I feeling bored today?


Is there something missing in my life


Maybe it’s a lost connection…


Over Simplified


That’s what I think


Is the truth for many of us


I even fall into the trap at times myself…


Because when you stop challenging yourself, life simplifies


At least from a physical and mental perspective in the short term


But eventually, that simplicity will lead to lack of connection, and boredom


And we all know what happens next, the pleasure path takes over your entire reality


Always seeking, and often finding, but never getting what you really need


Which allows the cycle to keep repeating itself for year and years


Until you find the connection you need and break the cycle


And that’s what I’m challenging us all to do today


Try to understand what we’re missing


We don’t need to solve it today


We just need to start…


The Connection


Do you see the pattern


It’s starts with simple boredom


But before you know it, you’re over simplified…


And at that point, you’ve now lost many of your connections


Most importantly, the connection with yourself and why you’re here


Leading you to seek pleasure to feed your boredom, instead of going within


And finding the real reason for your boredom and lost connection with your reality


Don’t get me wrong, I still fall victim to boredom, pleasure, and simplicity


The difference, I’m hyper aware of it and challenge myself often


What connection is it that I could be strengthening?


Why am I seeking pleasure at this moment?


These questions alone provide insight


So that you can start to uncover


To the real problem…


The Lesson


It comes in many forms


Humans, nature, work, body, mind, etc.


But the more connected you are with the above…


The less bored you will be, and less you will seek out pleasure


That said, I can imagine I’m making it seem like this is easy to accomplish


But with everything moving so quickly today, you can’t find the time to connect


Well, for me, this is where cannabis plays a big role in the way I manage this day to day


And is what I often use to connect to myself, others, nature, and even my work


Because as someone who’s been diagnosed with severe anxiety disorder


It’s the one thing that allows me to cope with childhood trauma


While at the same time helping me find deep connection


So that I am not bored, ultimately seeking pleasure


But instead, re-connecting to the universe


Which starts from within my friends


And branches back outward


Until the boredom


Disappears…


With Love,
