生平事迹 #2 ~ What Is Normal???

Inspired by a conversation I had with a good friend, check him out over at Scotties Toy Box lots of really good stuff over there, if you have a moment go over and show some love…

So… what is it to be normal? What qualities must a person possess within themselves which would be enough to fit the definition? Can normality even exist if we are all uniquely different?

Here’s an excerpt of a conversation I had with someone a while back, I’ll spare you the details of it all, but it revolves around the idea that I wanted to keep the friends I had before meeting her vs letting them go if there was to be a progression into a relationship, longer story short we don’t end up making it due to a lot of things, but I guess those are for stories later I suppose…

I know you’re thinking what does any of that have to do with normality well as it was told to me it’s what normal people do, letting friends go for the sake of something more with another is how a normal person thinks, i’m not into arguing if such an action is rite or wrong as I feel with that it’s a matter of personal opinon…

This idea though that something is what a normal person does is very dangerous I feel, in the sense it perpetuates the idea that there is an ideal that we as humans have that needs to be met…

In another excerpt from someone else, again I will spare the details of everything lol, what worries me is near the end where we see “its how I am. Its how most people I know are.” 

I’m all for independent thinking, if someomes thought or opinion is there own then I respect it, for it to have greater meaning only for the the fact it’s how most people think, well that’s where things get a little iffy for me…

So what do you think about it all, does the idea of being normal exist, if it does then what is it really, for me personally I think normal is a state of mind, there are no rite or wrong answers when it comes to how life should be approached, it’s all manifested within in the person, theres no way that one could really expect everyone to think the same, what we have here are examples of just that, a persons thoughts personally on what they feel is accurate, some may say that majority rules but I can’t say it applies to ones thinking it just can’t…

Just my opinion really, but like I always say I don’t have all the answers, the thought of an absolute way of thinking or personality to have to be “normal” scares me in a way honestly should it exist, it always begs the question of what is the person thereafter if they do not meet the status quo, just something to think about really…

Thanks for reading if you got this far, now off you go to enjoy some the more normal bloggers…

 

生平事迹 #1 ~ A Talk With TJ

Yesterday was my usual hangout time with TJ, we meet up give or take once or twice a month and just talk or listen to music for a bit, he usually always calls sometime after the first week of the month, says it’s cause all his money from the first goes to his phone bill and insurance, money gets funny until he gets paid again later from social security, not all that sure how his situation works and I don’t look into it much I just take his word for it, i mostly just bring him to the store to buy cigarettes, soda and snacks, I think he reaches out cause unlike all the others he says I don’t charge for gas or anything, most people hassle a lot over his situation and try to take advantage of him…

TJ has schizophrenia says that he hears voices in his head sometimes, he’s not the first person I know that has said they have it, I guess from knowing beforehand a little bit about it he feels comfortable to ask, most people don’t really understand or want to be burdened with the troubles of mine or others, so he feels lost a lot at times he said…

Talking with TJ this time about all the things that he goes thru and the ability to talk about it with no fear really opened my mind to things, I mean he tells me his life and I didn’t judge at all I completely understand, granted on the other hand as he always says people will always judge or not understand fully it’s in our nature to do so at times, but if you put it out there and it reaches the people that it needs too that can support you with the issue that you brought to them, and if your lucky enough from that you can find some sense of relief then your better off than where you started…

I guess with all that said I wanna be like TJ in a sense, to not be afraid so much how the things that I think will be received , I mean I somewhat have a following of people and all I put out are lackluster reviews with the occasional mix or photo from time to time, yet something about it people like and are receptive too, I don’t fear the criticism as much as I know it’s just part of life be it positive or negative, who knows from it all maybe something positive could come from it maybe understanding or relief who knows…

So thanks to TJ for as much as he says I help him , I guess in so many ways he helps me too, and for that I’m thankful…

Shining Armor

In a way I’m flattered that I’ve some how been inspiring you to write

But I’m tired of trying to make sense of what here’s wrong or right 

I’m trying to take a break from it, but it seems morning, noon, and night

I face the same demons who shape shift into the form of you itching for a fight

I think you know well enough I’m close to healing from the others scorn

You don’t want what your asking for, you have been forewarn  

A Magician’s Flattery?

I can’t fully understand how someone can come to another person’s blog and expect to be able to tell then how and what content they should post, I’m all for constructive criticism but this idea of what acceptable and what’s not is insanity…

It goes a bit deeper but its such foolish negative energy I feel no desire in responding, but know that I will in time, just know you got my attention magician…

I wonder if anyone is as fortunate as myself, I sure hope not lol…

Brainstorm #5 ☔

I gave myself five minutes to just write and whatever came out I’d keep it and call it brainstorming, it’s a little rough for my taste but I can see where I was going with it, I’m far from a poet lol…


For as much as I know you hate to read it 
Truth is I hate to write it

Yet you see my words again so I guess despite it

My best efforts too fight it

Were all in vain

As once again I release the storm of which is on my brain

I wonder sometimes of what was to became 

If insert name 

Were to give it one more again 

But what would it take to Ignite the flame

Mixed with having to douse the ones already roaring from the pain

Of what constantly remains 

Truth be told it all ends the same 

No matter the color, background, or knowledge obtained

From religious thots who claim pure to married women who creep and run trains 

To single mothers who wanna end it all like Cobain

Insecure ones who cant accept the idea of refrain

From the thought of becoming a plane 

Facilitated only by use of cocaine, with no shame 

I dare not ask what sort of injury one must sustain

To have such a thought be so deeply engrained

It’s like asking why the wind blows, some things just can’t be explained

All I know is at times like this my feelings can’t be contained 

Sylvia Browne ~ Insight 2006 ~ Review #30

So it says by the time of it’s release in 2006 Sylvia had been doing readings for more than twenty five plus years, impressive if nothing else I say, this is a sorta greatest hits if you will, maybe a greatest readings if you wanna call it that, its split up into different sections part of it is dedicated to experiences she’s had over the years with her gift of insight she says was present since the age of five, I liked this this section Sylvia speaks openly about her life as a medium and  personalty, there are a few cute family stories she shares and she speaks about the difficulties in marriage and relationships that her gift has allowed, kinda wish there were more to this section I like open Sylvia it reads in a playful conversational tone, it’s light and she doesn’t take things to serious…

Another section is dedicated to her case files over the years she’s had from her readings, I’ll say it was ok I guess I would have liked if the person being read would have had a bit of say in it, comes off a little one sided when Sylvia does all the narrative, I would have liked a little more back story on the participants on how the experience was for them during and after there readings, they do show actual copies of the case files which was kinda interesting…

Last section deals with her gift of insight in more detail, she explains past lives and communication with them, as well as them with her, there’s​ a part about spirit guides and the role they play,  and also clears up what she calls a few misconceptions about the medium community…

Overall it was ok I guess didn’t go in expecting much really, really liked the family stories and could have done without the case files stuff it was just to one sided for my liking, it’s worth a pickup if your into spiritual things or mediums, it’s a good introduction into it for those not to familiar with the subject, doesn’t really go over your head sorta thing…
