living and learning and sharing

How to Find Purpose in Life

1. Take time to ponder the questions “What really matters in life; what do I want to have achieved when I look back over my life?”

2. Make time for solitude and silence. Filling every minute makes it hard to listen to our intuition, or that inner guiding voice.

3. Seek out people who inspire you – and then learn from them. There are many people who live inspiring lives. We can learn from their experience, and what they have to share.

4. Consciously monitor your progress. It is easy to slip back into unproductive habits. Hence, we need to be committed to sticking to our plan.

5. Accept that struggles and setbacks will be part of your experience. There will be times when you are tempted to give up and stop trying … but choosing to keep going will lead you to your dreams.

Sometimes I stay up at night and I wonder how the relationship between Kreia and Revan worked when it came to them being master and apprentice, living together, training together, learning together, sharing stuff and doing things together; because from what I see Kraia is this salty old grandmother that probably monitors your breathing patterns while you sleep while Revan seems to be master dork extraordinaire who probably wears mismatching socks during jedi council sessions just to spite the old people. 

Did they ever argue about each other’s definition of keeping the apartment clean? Like Revan never finding anything in Kreia’s “minimalist crypt decor” and Kreia constantly fighting down headaches upon seeing Revan’s “organized chaos”?

Did Revan ever sneak out of the temple in the middle of the night and Kreia had to go find and drag them back by the scuff of their tunic not because they got out but because they could have at least had the decency to NOT frolic around the garbage disposal in search of spare droid parts?

What did they do in their off time? Did they spend time together arguing about who got to pick what they were going to watch on the holovid that evening? Did Revan ever have to plea with Kreia to go out and eat “decent food” at some cheap cantina in town with Kreia ending up as the one who enjoyed the food the most?

Did Kreia ever had to bail Revan out of prison because they accidentally started a workers’ riot in the main sector? Did Revan ever had to bail Kreia out of jail because she started to heavily critique the republic senators on their new bill WHILE IN SESSION?

Did they ever get in fights? How did they go about apologizing to each other? Did Revan ever go around to put on a sock puppet shows for Kreia to say they were sorry which ended with Kreia unbelieving she ended up having a conversation with a piece of cotton?

Was Kreia putting up with Revan’s eccentricities because she couldn’t stop her padawan or was she actually subtly encouraging them, because she sometimes watches Revan and sees herself if she only had someone to be there for her when she took the risks to be herself?

There are so many possibilities why are we not talking about this?

A Better Life

Grow in love with all of it and strive to altruism.
Allow life to excite you by partaking in it.
Commit yourself to the ride and ride with all of its saints.
Pick your fruit from the earth’s reserve of wonders.
Lose yourself in the flutter of the Monarchs.
Swim at night and let the moon saturate your mind.

Be intimate.

Accept your unique light and be guided by it;
Transform your world with it.
Infuse their drink with your leaves.  
Enlighten dormant-hearts with rituals of kindness.
Bow down in reverence to wisdom and learn.
Sweeten your voyage with music.
Nourish something living and coexist.
Share your plane of existence and play your part in sustaining life.
Honor the skin and savor the soul;
Hold on to the memories and all the hands that helped you create them.
 
Open yourself to the energy that flows incessant,
Devising the meeting of strangers,
Encouraging wonderers, champions, interlopers, vagrants, stars,
and all the lost souls to simply just medley more often.

Raiden and his family feel like the kind of people that would enjoy camping and outdooring….

It’s an activity done away from other people, so he’s not getting any weird looks. And in MGS4, it’s mentioned that he spent a long time living with Alaskan natives, learning outdoor survival skills, so that’s something positive to share with his son…. You know, show the little guy how to pitch a tent, build a fire, tie knots, fish, gather berries, avoid drowning….etc. all that cute stuff. 

Also,…. lets be real here…. they live in fucking new zealand….what else are they going to do besides outdooring and sheep shearing? 

The actress who plays Hermione Granger is black and this is making the rounds, unfortunately we had to read several prejudiced comments. The reason of these reviews is not because she is a grown woman, but for being black, so that at no time these people have cited the other actors, only women, for their race.

JK Rowling always spent the best teachings in his books, always breaking prejudices, showed us how important it is we accept and get along with diversity, and how our lives can be better if we learn to share good moments with others, regardless of color, sexual orientation, beliefs or other differences. After all, “Although we come from different places, we speak different languages, our hearts beat as one.”

#7. Payback

One day the boys were supposedly out of town, and you were supposedly alone, and it was supposedly the perfect time to blast your favorite music and dance around the Bunker in your PJs.

One day the boys were actually not out of town, and you were actually not alone, and it was actually the worst time to blast your favorite music and dance around the Bunker in your PJs.

This was a fact proven by 38,128 hits on a YouTube video uploaded by user “smith&wesson.”

One day a magazine arrived at the Bunker. It catered to homemakers. In particular, those of a same-sex, testosterone-fueled nature.

It supposedly had an article on page 12 about learning to live with a significant other in close quarters. It supposedly shared great tips, easy fixes, and a promising outlook on domestic living.

You couldn’t say for sure if it actually had any of those things.

However, what it did have, was a full-page spread featuring two attractive men. One was long-haired and washing dishes, with fluffy suds climbing up his forearms and smeared across one cheek. Apparently, his hair was making the chore difficult, so a shorter man was trying to assist by tying it back. Shouting from the corner of the page was a bright yellow caption, in sans serif font, declaring: "HOW TO GET BEHIND YOUR PARTNER, IN AND OUT OF THE SHEETS!”

You had ordered 30 copies of this magazine, 7 of which were placed strategically around the bunker.

“SAM!!! JESUS CHRIST, I TOLD YOU SHE WAS TAKING A PICTURE!”

From the sounds of it, Dean had just found the first one.

the sensates all lead pretty dramatic lives, but imagine the wacky sitcom where they learn to use their shared ability

capheus jumps a share on riley so he can go see platform 9 ¾ at king’s cross

nomi swooping in on kala to steal her last bite of dessert

will is on a blind date and asks lito to jump in to help him out (you’re so smooth, bro!)

sun and wolfgang use each other’s bodies to go see new german and korean cinema, respectively – they’re pretty psyched with what a sweet trade it is (and wolfgang likes to play with sun’s dog)

i just think the possibilities are endless here
