10 Minutes - Godlike Powers of Perception

Hi. It's Joe.

I don't know what it is, but the last couple of days I have had what I call Godlike powers of perception. This is not to be confused with Godlike powers of action, just perception. I am seeing a lot of things very clearly. As a result, some things have, in my perception, become very puny and insignificant, while other things seem more important than ever.

I don't need to go into details, but suffice it to say, the fantasy world conveyed by mainstream media is a farce and an illusion.

Lately, I have been eating amazingly healthily and exercising. I have eliminated almost all American processed junk food from my life. I am also continuing my mainstream media fasting. It is amazing, but when you clear your body of dietary toxins and your mind of media poison, reality comes into much sharper focus.

I don't know about you, but I will miss Hugo Chavez. I admired his benevolent dictatorship and the way he was a socialistic thorn in the side of American capitalist free marketeers and neocons.

I bought a book a while ago, about making a career of writing and as I was reading it last night, I concluded that I disagree with it. The author's basic thesis is, if you want to be a full time writer, save up a year's salary and then be poor and destitute while you struggle to make it as a writer. Yeah, good plan there, Biff.

Why not have a day job that is tolerable, and if possible writing related, to underwrite creative writing on the side. I mean, if writing is really your passion, you are going to try to do it all the time. So just do ikt after work and on weekends. But you need a day job that dolesn't suck your life force out, and that is hard to come by.

I am lucky I guess. I have a day job I rock at, which is usually fairly easy (because I practice awesome time management strategies, like deleting any and all emails that do not relate to my job and keeping work and personal email separate), and allows me to listen to punk rock music while working.
