Challenge me in a way to say my life can be better, Challenge Excepted.
Challenge me in a way to say my life can be better, Challenge Excepted.
This will be where I will be assembling my "thoughts."
You are welcome to come along for the journey.
You always knew there was no death.
*I believe inside our DNA there is a program that runs just before death.
It has to do with a certain part of our body going oxygen deprived.
When this happens, your DNA runs a program. The program says there is no death. "Near-Death Experience" or as my Freudian Slip stated in this interview, "Near Life Experience." On my first birthday I drowned. I died on my first birthday. Multiple times in my life I have heard something along this line, “We know he sounds crazy but 5 years from now when you realize everything, he said come true you just realize, just listen to what he said.
How different would your world be right now, if every minute, of your entire existence, you knew there was no death? How different would you be right now?
For me that started 56 years ago. Now I have something to say. Interested?
How different would your world be right now if ... (substack.com)
Do you think our world might be a little different when we realized we can do this?
"It doesn’t have to rain where you are."
When we realize we can change the weather, what else can we do? Everything changes when we realize we do control everything. I'm not certain when I first realized it, but somehow, I always knew. Maybe because I drowned and died on my first birthday? NDE. Maybe it was going to 9 schools in 12 years? Maybe it was the personal introduction at the age of 10 to Jesus in July of 1977? Somehow something made it possible for me to see and learn things so many around me did not. I saw how there was a similarity between towns, schools, students, teachers, organizations, political systems, Rules and Laws that others just seemed oblivious to. I stepped out of the world many currently live, back in June 2012 when my last proverbial straw was broken. Question, if you saw the current train wreck coming, knowing the calamity about to present itself, what would you do? Over time I will talk about the choices I made. In short, I changed "Everything". If you choose to follow along, I will over time explain how, why and what, I may currently know that you don't. Many judge things like, something is large, or something is small. Imagine the transformation that ensues when this observation is challenged and something unknown and unseen presents itself in its stead. What changes when you realize that it doesn’t have to rain where you are?
What changes when we all realize we change the weather, what else do we realize we do?
Everything Changes when We Realize We Control Everything!
What is the difference between brilliant and crazy? Currently, just a couple of years.
“I told that story a little earlier today. I don’t realize how crazy that sounds, until I’m talking to someone that doesn’t know me.” Because I have a power of observation that many do not realize is possible, I see patterns in things that goes unnoticed by most. So, I simply know things that others around me currently don't. A little background. I did not learn to start reading like most children do until I was in 3rd grade. It wasn't until 9th grade that a teacher in my new school said, "I know what your issue is, and we are going to fix it this year". Bye 9th grade graduation I was reading at 650 wpm with 100% comprehension. My innate pattern recognition skills are off the scale. Apparently, I have produced neuro pathways differently than "neurotypical individuals. In doing so, let's just say I seem to live in a world that most apparently do not yet know exists. That being said, it doesn't mean it doesn't.
If the outcome is any indication of the quality of previous decisions, let's just say, "I Love this Shit!". At 56 I have designed a small business that I go to 3/ 7-hour days a week in Daytona Beach Florida, (I'm from Green Bay, WI) I live on the ocean next to my daughter and family. Now I have the time and energy to start sharing things I have learned along the way. If you choose to follow along, I guarantee you will have thoughts brought up, that you have never had before. And in doing so, we change everything.
You have not, because you ask not.
Every hear those words?
Reader please be aware, we always get back exactly what we "emotionally" respond to, "Period". That's (Key) to understanding how this thing called life is assembled. If we put it into a math problem to remove any emotional attachment to the physical, it become much more apparent. What is happening all around us all the time, is simply an even revolving energy exchange. Every millisecond, of every moment of this thing we call life.
I have become aware of this, with the "apparent" observation called time. Apparently, many are distracted from this observation simply by being busy. By simplifying my existence, I created the peace and quiet required in my life to hear the soft words that guide us all into the "Worlds of our Dream's". "This is what happened when I learned to listen". My "Peace on Earth" presented itself to me because I drew that "Potential." We have had it happen around us our entire life. On "Good Days" "good things happen". On "Bad Days" "bad things happen". In truth, we get back an even exchange of our emotional response to what we perceive as life. "Like" attracts "Like." Even exchange of energy.
If I could make a suggestion:
Get excited (put energy into, give emotional response) about anything you want to see return into your world. Ignore (simply walk through without any emotional response) anything you don't want to see return into your world. Simply put on the spiritual end, Imagine the unimaginable and see what presents itself into your world. Everything is a Potential.
"Your attitude creates your altitude". One of my favorite quotes by my 98-year young Grandmother, Nellie Lafferty.
If you live in the moment, which is where all access happens.
So, it’s about (“What Comes Next”)
In this moment we find ourselves, you are reading this, while I am writing it. We are both in the current now while our personal perceptions of it say differently. You, like I have never woken up in a yesterday or tomorrow. We have woken up every day of our lives into a today. It is, and has always been a today, just take a moment to grasp that. We have only ever been in the present moment, the current now. Sneek peak, for those that go and read the last page first, that's a good thing, it's where all the magic happens. Many believe it is best to put as much energy as possible, pushing against whatever it is they desire to have be different than what they currently perceive. In truth, it is about producing the energy required to have your desired world drawn to you. We produce the vibration for our worlds to match. Like attracts like. And in doing so our worlds around us change, most would call it magic, of which it is. Many others call it math. A few decades ago, I learned by playing a mental game of intention, the control I had. When I learned to live in the current now, the present moment, the now. Everything started to just come together. I have 1,250,000 miles behind the wheel of a Big Truck. It was during those years that I really looked inside to learn things that we were not taught in school. I will share along this journey some of the observations I have made that apparently changed things. I really only use the words "apparently changed things" because for many I realize this stuff all sounds crazy. As I say in my business, Magnet Rocks, I realize this may sounds crazy, I just know from life experience when you experience what everyone experiences, I get to meet your friends. So, what happens when we learn to spend more time in the current now? So, it’s always been about (“What Comes Next”)
Multiple times in my life I have heard something along this line,
“We know he sounds crazy but 5 years from now when you realize everything, he said come true you’ll just realize, just listen to what he said".
What are here are marks left on my back from cliff diving on my 50th Birthday addressing Karmic Life Direction. These were the only marks left behind by the death that didn't happen. (I hit the bottom cliff diving right after saying “Now it’s all up to you”) Why didn’t it happen? Because the death that was coming was addressed head on energetically. Even exchange of energy. I “chose” to stay and put out the energy that made the adjustments for it to happen. I must admit I did not fully comprehend the all-encompassing decision I was making in my 49th year. All I knew was, I was just made the Leader of a Motorcycle Community that had been meeting at the Black Hills Rally in “Sturgis” for over 35 years. At that time, I had been going to Sturgis for (23) years and I had been riding for (44) years. I wasn’t about to let this “Passing of the Guard” happen without “Proving my Worthiness” to everyone. Little did I know my life depended on it. And so began “My Hero’s Journey.
This was but one part of that rally. When it was done and over with, I asked if I had anything left to prove to anyone present? And after everything I did with and showed them. Their answer was unanimously, *&%^$# No!! Six years later I discovered this. If I did not at that point of my life put forth everything required, I would have been dead over 5 years now.
That may sound crazy but Multiple times in my life I have heard something along this line, “We know he sounds crazy but 5 years from now when you realize everything, he said come true you just realize, just listen to what he said. PS: Almost 7 years later I live on the ocean. I live next to my daughter and her family and run a business I designed 21 hours a week. If you choose to come on this journey, I believe you will have thoughts you never had before. Then we change the world.
The only thing you have ever done is (“What Comes Next”)
What happens when you realize you have only ever done 1 thing? Oh, that's right, everything changes.
That’s it. That sounds so simplistic, doesn't it? It almost sounds ridicules when I say it. Say it out loud, "The only thing I have ever done is what comes next. Now let that sink in. That is the *ONLY* thing we have ever done. Sound strange? So, whether you are 19 or 91, we do what comes next, then repeat.
Look at young children when they are going through their daily lives. They simply go from one thing that intrigues them, to the next thing that intrigues them. There is no place in their world for tomorrows or planning anything, why? That concept doesn't exist in their worlds. The same things can be said of our pets and the entire animal kingdom. What is it that children and animals seem to know, that many appear to be so clueless of. Think of being in a park watching children and animals playing. What do you see? What makes the energy in the parks so different than most other places?
(No clocks or calendars?) Just a thought.
There is a natural balance in everything. Most would have no idea how to explain it, yet somehow, we all know it is there. As I perceive time differently with so called passage, I have noticed that being connected to things outside the current now has unseen side effects. Given the choice, I believe most would judge those effects to be on the unpleasant side. Why would I choose to observe it that way?
Are You Ready?
As I see it. The only control is in the choice of "What Comes Next" So if an individual chooses not to consciously make a choice, explain to me what control does that individual have? Why are children and animals different from most adults? Because they seem to naturally live inside the magic of the current now. It is where "All Is" and in that, all control (MAGIC) exists.
What happens when we all realize the only thing, we have ever been able to do, is (“What Comes Next”) Oh that's right, everything changes.
At moments like this, time stand still. Then you can see it for what it truly is.
For most people I have had the pleasure of meeting, this was a new thought, the idea of only doing what comes next. That it is impossible to do something in 5 minutes. The fact that we simply respond to whatever "stimuli" we choose to interact with. Then repeat the process, from birth until death, ponder that a moment.
The word "stimuli" represents for me, everything I believe I have ever interacted with. Every person, place, animal, plant, insect, thought, happy, sad, angry, surprised, life events, births, deaths, marriages, divorces. OK, got the idea. I use the word "stimuli" here because of lack of emotional attachment to it. Unlike words like puppy, money, job, Mother in-law.
When I started to realize this idea in my head, things started to ebb and flow in ways, I never thought possible. Why, because there is something “in the now.”
(Previous article mentioned)
“There's a natural balance in everything. Most would have no idea how to explain it, yet somehow, we all know it's there. As I perceive time differently with the so-called passage of it, I noticed that being connected to things outside of the current now, or present, has unseen side effects. Given the choice, I believe most would judge these effects to be on the unpleasant side. Why would I choose to observe it that way, let me explain.
The reason I believe is, there is not an understanding or observation of what is lost by not being present, or in the current now. This is because there's an unseen force that by not being observed by many is not known about. There is an even exchange that happens in the flow that only happens in the current now, not in a moment or a minute or an hour. Now. By being in it you get to directly affect way more than seams possible.
Without experiencing that connection consciously, most don't have a place for it in their reality. Even though we grew up in it, simply doing what came next. I discovered this when the word procrastination came up in my existence. After this, I understood this concept.
It was explained that you only procrastinate things that you would choose not to do. We never procrastinate stuff we like. So, what's the cascading effect of not addressing a current issue and putting it off until a future current now? You dread it. You dreaded it when it came up the first time. When it comes up the second time you get to go through that emotional response again.
What does this mean? Our entire existence is a circle based on our emotional response to everything. It's a self-fulfilling feedback system based on our emotional responses to "stimuli". So when you meet the people that live in the moment, and simply do what's next. You will realize there's something different about them than everybody else. Why would that be? Because all the magic is in the current now.
In the last 24 hours how much of your time have you spent thinking about tomorrow? Dreading what happened yesterday or any combination of those. In the last 24 hours how many of those "units" represented as "minutes" did you spend in this current now. That being said, you have never been able to do something in 5 minutes, ever. And all the magic is in the current now.
Because what I am talking about has no representation in the life of an individual makes it impossible to explain to them. Whatever this "Magic" is, only present in the current now. Why? Apparently, there is nothing outside of the current now, or "What comes next."
What happens when we all realize the only thing, we have ever done, is (“What Comes Next”) Oh that's right, everything changes.
You have never been able to do something in 5 minutes. (substack.com)
"To the best of my ability" then repeat.
I can still hear the words, "Would it have been easier to do it right the first time?"
As I'm writing this now thinking back on my youngest impressionable years. I hear that question lovingly expressed at different times in my life by my Mechanical Electrical Engineer Father. Like sitting in the boat after fighting a fish and the swivel came untied because I didn't tie the knot correctly. As I'm retying a new swivel the soft loving voice over my right shoulder asks, “Would it have been easier to do it right the first time?” As a 56-year young male, I can almost hear the whisper from over 40 years ago over my right shoulder. As I am in the garage with a wrench in my hand. “Would it have been easier to do it right the first time?”
I have always realized that I was blessed and highly favored. How did I know this? Because I was blessed to hear it from the ones around me that loved and cared for me. Imagine hearing that as a small child over and over by different members of your family throughout your informative years. Being we become what we believe, see how I can in all truth state, "I only do one thing. That’s to the best of my ability, and then I repeat.”
Maybe a little more information will make this clearer.
My Dad was the first generation off the farm. He “WORKED” during his life. He wished better for me. “Work smarter not harder.” Almost a mantra from my dad to me. “You hit things with hammers not hands”. “You wipe your hands on rags, not your clothes”. “There is a tool built for all occasions, use them”.
“If you have time to fix it, you had time to do it right the first time.”
I had a paper route at a young age, so time management became something in my life very early. Having responsibility with consequences taught me early, there is an easy way and there is a hard way. I must admit it took me a while to learn the easy way may not be the best way. In this thing called life, sometimes the shortest distance between two points is not a straight line. Who knew?
I apparently see patterns sooner than most. Because of this gift I realized something very early. If something worked once, it worked. You may want to pause and reread that last sentence. You can see how that statement not understood could sound stupid. This means “when you repeat what you already know works do it like a champ.” How? 1. Because you already know it worked, now repeat it with energy. Why? 2. The energy given off in the doing of something with the power of knowing is not understood, so it is not valued. When you move with the power of knowing, the world moves with you.
If you discovered something at a young age that had a natural benefit to using, would you use it? I would think the answer to be yes, which is what I did. If I did not understand something, first I might watch, then possibly ask questions or read something about it. The desired outcome of this process would be to do it correctly. What does "correctly" mean to me? Correctly: Complete a task with the least amount of time, effort and or money combination.
As I become less young, the observable different aspects of myself have been run through processes. These processes simply became a game to me; how well can something be completed as efficiently as possible? (It is mind boggling) I discovered I would not know that answer, until I learned to do one thing. (My Best) So, the simplest, easiest and most accurate way of arriving at any point was by APPLYING myself to anything I desired. So, I only do one thing, "To the best of my ability" then repeat. I do that because “I’m selfish,” but more on that statement tomorrow.
So always due “To the best of your ability”.
I might learn something today that changes a perspective of me tomorrow, but it is to the best of my ability. And I do that because I’m selfish.
When I look back, it is way better to "Have Luck" than "Be Good."
I believe because of a NDE (near death experience) at an age before conscious memory, I make different choices than most I have met. If you removed all connection from "past" or "future", what do you do *NOW*? Repeat.
Welcome to "M.E. Kapla's world according to M.E."
This picture was taken in Custer State Park by the passenger on my motorcycle with a digital camera. There is no zoom used to capture this picture. You see it as I saw it on that day. If you look at the bottom of the picture you can just see the start of the shoulder of the road. Take notice of the dust and their bent legs. Yes, I am riding within feet of a running herd of Bison.
Moments earlier when my dad and I came around a bend and over a hill, we spotted this bison herd my dad fell back. He was always "smarter" than I. He viewed this from a safe distance. I did not realize we caught up to a moving herd until we reached the next valley. Then my surroundings sunk in. This picture is of the calves and cows I had been riding next to at the END of the herd. When we arrived at the next valley it was full, I had no idea of the bison herd size kept in Custer.
Afterwards dad said that was one of the coolest, if not the stupidest things he had ever personally seen. Watching his only son on his Harley riding along with a running herd of Bison was a sight he said he would never forget. My dad rode for 61 years, I'm a 3rd generation rider.
Once a year, you can see a herd of 1,400 bison thunder through Custer State Park
Custer State Park in the beautiful Black Hills of western South Dakota is full of lush forests, quiet and serene meadows, and majestic mountains. This 71,000-acre state park is also home to over a thousand bison—one of the world's largest publicly owned bison herds.
This story highlights a situation that for the majority of my life I did not know I have.
Here it is: I only do one thing, “That’s to the best of my ability, and then I repeat.” Now please understand, it doesn't mean it's correct. I might learn something today that changes a perspective of me tomorrow, but it is to the best of my ability. And I do that because I’m selfish.
We have all experienced this exchange of energy. Think of any test you ever studied for. If you tried a little you received a "C". If you put forth your best, you received an "A". This is a practical life experience we have all shared. What is put in, comes out. So, because I have chosen to apply My Best "A" I receive "A" quality return. Even exchange of energy, repeat.
Why have I learned to be the best me? Because I am selfish, (I learned to take care of one's "self-first") Life experience has shown me, experience is connected directly to energy expended. Not a 10 or a 1. Not a lot or a little. There is a direct return of energy based on the level of "joy/peace/gratitude/balance/etc." I hold throughout my day. So, I had to learn to love enough to become selfish. So, as I have stated, it doesn't mean it's correct. I might learn something today that changes a perspective of me tomorrow, but it is to the best of my ability in the current now.
This picture and memories only exist because in the world I live in there is no separation. Everything is part of a much larger system that somehow, I experience differently than most I have met. Example, no past or future over lays on today, no separation. All Magic is in the current Now! Imagine if the thought of death had been removed before your first memories. You might find yourself with pictures and memories just like this one. Time to share.
You realize it doesn't have to get that bad before I change. It’ how we learn.
Some of the signs in life are easier to read than others.
Many times, I have used these words, "The kindest people I have ever met got that way because of being put through the grinder enough times. I know this maybe a judgement. That being said, it is based on personal experience. Apparently, a hard life produces a soft heart.
I believe this thing called life does play by a "set of rules", let's say. I just don't think we consciously know what they are, so we are playing this game "in the dark." One thing about playing "in the dark", the smallest spark of light is HUGE! It changes everything in a flash. Just like life. Everything changes at the "Speed of thought."
My observations of the "signs" apparently is unique to some. Growing up if I did not like something, anything, guess what? I did something different. Let me give you an update on the Great American "Nightmare" Dream. Doing what you did yesterday, today. Even though you hated it. Then repeat tomorrow what you did today because it didn't kill you yesterday.
Somewhere along the path I discovered I did not appreciate the world around me the same way I saw others did. I also saw I could make any choice I choose. Did you ever hear this "Parents statement", "If they all walked off the cliff would you just follow along?" I just described my current observation of the world.
Welcome to M.E. Kapla's The world according to M.E.
As I see the "Current Average Human Daily Experience". The short version.
Awaken early at the same time to alarm clock. Pre world interaction preparations identical daily. How they shit, shower, shave, breakfast, right down to the tv program and chair they sit in, identical. How they choose to commute, time, route, fuel locations, grocery shopping, identical. Right down to the pattern they shop in, even in grocery stores they have never been in. Work in a job that underappreciates and under compensates them for their time and energy. Eat dinner, watch tv, sleep. Making the choice to repeat what was done yesterday with the hope that in 40+ years, they will be able to retire at 65. Rinse, repeat, pay taxes, die. To be slightly blunt.
How many times being hit with 2x4’s with spikes in them is enough? I realized and learned by the observation of others over time that it doesn't have to get that bad before I changed something. Apparently, it’s how we've chosen to learn in the past. How different does our world appear to us all when facts like this are held in the Social Consciousness of the "Human". "Nothing that has ever happened before this moment, has any effect on this moment, unless you think it does."
Just a thought to ponder. What if life was not like a movie, one scene leading to the next scene over and over again. What if it was more like slides. Not actually connected to each other. Each slide a representation of you in your then current now. That slide of you at the Grand Canyon is a slide of you in your then current now. That slide of you at Yellow Stone is a slide of you in your then current now. That slide of you at Skiing is a slide of you in your then current now. There is no connection. They are all simply representations of a then, current now. The only moment that actually exists. I believe before I go any further down this rabbit hole, I need to give a little background. I will start right there on Monday.
On the lighter side. You can always choose something you have never thought of one time and change everything you think of as your life. If you're ready for the real magic to be the spark of your life, do something you have never done. Watch what presents itself to you in that current now.
I started this Substack to present observations I have made during this journey I call life. To attempt to present my observations in a way that is uplifting yet informative. Something that could, if applied, change all aspects for the participants.
Once you've been hit with enough 2x4’s with spikes in them. (substack.com)
“So what’” Everybody comes from somewhere, everybody has their stories.
Jack Canfield, while talking about the chicken soup for the soul books talked about his upbringing. He used a line that I will never forget. After explaining about being raised in an alcoholic environment. It was, “So what’” Everybody comes from somewhere, everybody has their stories. Point well taken.
For historical purposes and for the day that my grandchildren read this, I will tell you a about my starting line of this thing I call life. I was born to a minister's daughter in 1966. My Mom’s father, Irish, just passed at the age of 95 after being a Pentecostal fire and brimstone preacher *&* being married for over 75 years to my grandmother, English 97. My dad was a farmer’s son. His Father was born in Poland. His family immigrated to the US when he was 1 and his mom was Belgian. My Paternal Great Grandmother Polish, never learned to speak English. I lost them both in my teens.
The eldest child with 1 sister 14 months younger. We went to 9 different schools in 12 years non-military. So, we were always the new kids. And we all know how kind children can be to the new kids, yes 9 in 12 years. I had learning disabilities like dyslexia and really did not learn how “I” read until 9th grade. My Dad was a Mechanical Electrical Engineer Biker that retiring after 44 years with the same company at the top of his field. My Mom was a caretaker her entire life for children, elderly, handicapped and drank excessively for the first 35 years of my life. I lost them both within 130 days of each other, a couple years ago.
That gets us back to this, “So what’” Everybody comes from somewhere, everybody has their stories. This thought will run through all 5 articles this week. So, what happened when I started making choices for myself outside of the construct of the family unit? I had no idea yet what was happening.
Think of this term, "information collection". Picture an over the top overly observant student, going to 9 schools in 12 years as an observer and a collector of information. In short, what I realized was, nothing about school was about education. Nothing! Behavior modification / indoctrination. That's it, 12 years specifically about behavior modification / indoctrination. In 12 years of indoctrination, how much education did you get in raising children? Financial responsibility? Medical care? Let that sink in. What you learned was repeat after me. 2023 they still teach that an Italian discovered this continent. No education. None.
1983 at the age of 17 I enlisted in the United States Navy. The Navy eventually told me, I couldn't play their war games with them anymore. It was a strange thing to discover the US Military was just like the indoctrination system I just got free of called “Public Education”. A few years later after, whoever God is, sat me down. I was paused for a moment in time, and he did some work on me.
Three moments separated these first 23 years. 1967 drowning on my first birthday, NDE. 1977 accepted Jesus as my savior. 1989 being released from prison knowing the only reason I was still alive was because something wanted it that way. Prison saved my life, and it would still take me 20 years, and 2 marriages to comprehend what I had been taught. From this point forward though, I knew things those around me simply did not currently know.
I always knew I was blessed and highly favored. That was the beginning. (substack.com)
This is just the beginning of the differences.
Can you tell I have a tear drop pupil? I was born with this.
First an explanation:
Variation in coloration
Complete heterochromia is when they have two different colored eyes.
.0006034% of population
Coloboma is an eye abnormality that occurs before birth. Colobomas are missing pieces of tissue in structures that form the eye.
Coloboma occurs in approximately 1 in 10,000 people.
.0001% of population
Most at birth have dark or blue eyes that may change as they age. Just like every other part of my life, I would not even start out like the rest. When the assessment was made at birth, specialists flew in because these should not be able to happen at the same time normally mathematically. (What I mean is without an accident causing it.)
One of my favorite things about having my eyes growing up was always having amazing night vision. Because the Coloboma allowed more light into my eye than most. I could aways see way better than others in the dark just like cats. After dark, I was the kick the can champion. As I became less young, my favorite part was the women's response when they spotted them. Let’s just say the 80’s were a fruitful time for this young man!
In Thursday’s article I will do a deeper dive when I explain how, not only do I have eyes you have never seen before. I also have a voice, that bye definition of, you've probably never heard. Besides my unique eye’s, I am also an oktavist.
An Octavist has an exceptionally deep-ranged basso profondo, especially typical of Russian Orthodox choral music. This voice type has a vocal range which extends down to A1 (an octave below the baritone range) and sometimes to F1 (an octave below the bass staff) with the extreme lows for oktavists.
From yesterday: “So what’” Everybody comes from somewhere, everybody has their stories.
Thursdays I will explain the math behind this statement, “I am actually 3 in a species.”
I was raised in a household by a loving, spiritually aware mom, and extremely intelligent dad. My mom was the nurturer of my upbringing, my father was my best friend-teacher. My mother, more than anything, taught me how to be self-sufficient, trusting and love unconditionally. My dad taught me to fish, hunt, fix things, ride motorcycles and think for myself. Of which, up until the day he died, I don’t think he ever got over that last one.
Being raised in a household with two parents and being able to observe the opposite ends of the spectrum personality-wise, between my mom and dad. It was a great environment to start this life out in. Was everything done correctly around me, nope, just like your upbringing. The people around me all did the best they could, just like the rest of us do. I was blessed to be surrounded by people that cared for, and took care of me my entire upbringing, until I was able to do those things for myself. What more could one ask for?
I was told while growing up, “You were always such a happy child.” Somethings never change, I am still a “Happy Adult”. That being said, that may or may not explain this issue. I have a serious lack of childhood memories. Maybe it is because I have always lived in the current now.
My Generation is known as GenX. I have heard this generation’s fucks are broken. That this generation has no fucks to give to people, places or things. That is actually so close, it is not funny!!! It is not that I do not care. It is the fact that my generation figured it out or died. My generation also has no issue with that fact. Which in short means, we figured it out, you figure it out, leave us out of it. Not my circus, not my monkeys.
This brings us back to “So what’” Everybody comes from somewhere; everybody has their stories.”
In 2012, after following what is said to do to have a successful life. I abandoned the “security” and world that most currently live in. I then designed and built a business from the ground up that became #1 Google Ranked. How did I accomplish this. Simply stated, I see patterns others don’t and used an underutilized section of the current economy. I am blessed to be able to help people help themselves, which is how I am sitting on the beach today writing this.
The time has come for me to “Express My Truth.” Tomorrow I explain this statement:
“I am actually 3 in a species.”
I’m actually 3 in a species.
“That is quite a statement to be made.”
I really only use those words because I hate starting out a conversation with,
“I'm the only one like me there has ever been”.
It Just Sounds So Wrong. Because in reality. Every person ever on the planet could use those exact words. That being said, here are the facts of this statement.
“I’m actually 3 (or less) in a species.” Go ahead, try and disprove the math.
Variation in coloration
Complete heterochromia is when they have two different colored eyes.
.0006034% of population
Coloboma is an eye abnormality that occurs before birth. Colobomas are missing pieces of tissue in structures that form the eye.
.0001% of population
Here is a little suprise if you read yesterday’s article. I am also an Oktavist.
So rare there are no % of population.
An oktavist is an exceptionally deep-ranged basso profondo, especially typical of Russian Orthodox choral music. This voice type has a vocal range which extends down to A1 (an octave below the baritone range) and sometimes to F1 (an octave below the bass staff) with the extreme lows for oktavists,
While The New Grove Dictionary of Opera defines a typical bass as having a range that is limited to the second E below middle C (E2), operatic bassi profondi can be called on to sing low C (C2), as in the role of Baron Ochs in Der Rosenkavalier. Often choral composers make use of lower notes, such as G1 or even F1; in such rare cases the choir relies on exceptionally deep-ranged bassi profondi termed oktavists or octavists, who sometimes sing an octave below the bass part.

Modern science says in the species that we consider ourselves part of, there has been 90 billion in the history of that species. So, when you hear of someone talking about being 1 in a million, I’m actually 3 (or less) in a species.
That once again brings us back to “So what’” Everybody comes from somewhere, everybody has their stories. Wait until you discover, because of this and other things I learned along the way. Some of the choices I made.
Now imagine knowing this your whole life. That’s how it began.
Every time you brush your teeth, and you look in the mirror, you realize you’re never going to meet somebody like you.
That’s how it began. From: Feb. 28 thought
If you do not recognize something for "what it is",
will you see it for "what it could be"?
I have spent a few moments of time during this life contemplating the meaning of it, as you can imagine. You know the thoughts, where did I come from, where am I going. The meaning of it all, you know, same old same old. While playing that game, I discovered something I did not know to look for. I only know what I know, (just like you) I discovered this question along the journey.
How is it possible that you and I are different?
I understand, we are all unique like a snowflake. I know I was blessed to have been brought up in a protected space. I recognize it gave me a safe backdrop to make my first decisions in. That being said, many have been blessed to start their life out that way.
I thought of the environmental effects on everyone’s upbringing. The age-old argument, whether it's nature or nurture that is the most important. Being born in the mid 60’s surrounded by people all doing the best they could to help me, be the best me I could be. All while being the unique selves that they all were, all while doing their own thing.
I thought maybe it was because the generations ahead of me pushed the envelope to be the opposite of the generation before them. Alcoholic father became a Minister. Farmer father become a mechanical electrical engineer. What I created through my first conscious choices during my upbringing was the best version of M.E. I could. A “Black Sheep” to society.
“Black Sheep”: An individual that will do what they do, put bluntly, No Fucks given. This is in no way to say bad or evil. Simply, they are going to go places and do things that those before them never dreamt of. In a family there may be a “Black Sheep.” I was born into a multi-generational family of “Black Sheep” on both sides, so it is all I knew how to be. Basically, as long as there wasn’t too much blood or bone showing growing up, it was all good. Fly, Be free, that is almost an understatement. I am now referred to as GenX.
My thoughts have been maybe because of the 9 schools in 12 years that I never got fully plugged in to the system around me. You know the system, it has always been, do what your dad did before you, get married, buy a house, raise a family. In this country it has been known as “The Great American Dream.” All of that once again brings us back to “So what’” everybody comes from somewhere, everybody has their stories. So why are we different?
If you do not recognize something for what it is, will you see it for what it could be?
Maybe it is because I drowned and died on my first birthday? I believe this Near Death Experiance, (NDE) has more to do with it and why I have always danced to my own drum.
