Beakers, pipettes, test tubes, millilitres of this, a couple of drops of that, creation never understood limitation and is best friends with imagination. The goal is right over the horizon but to traverse the space in between, things like patience and motivation are the basic essentials.

At higher ground, you can view the many options that lie on the surface but inevitably, looking at eye level, exploring with explicit detail, is where you make ‘the great strides‘. You need see where you are headed but true effort exists in the exacting measurements and micro adjustments.

You cannot climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets” – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Trial and effort become a marriage proposal and ‘even through sickness and health‘ is the only response. However, just like every learning experience it is not enough to just try. You must exhaust every possibility, explore passionately, annotate feverishly, BUT apply accordingly. No good ever came out of impulsive repetition except the illusion of a world concocted from insanity. Trust your gut and dispel insecurity.

In order to be where you have never been, you must do something you have never done

Sure, it can become overwhelming. Yes, your soul will submit to the grinding stone. But just like stagnant water, nothing will thrive without some form of locomotion. Reserve static for the television you should never sit down on the couch for.

Fear gives off a pungent waft inciting the nose signals to fire off parts of the brain to run and avoid. However, if it is fear that is keeping you away, it is exactly the reason you should directly challenge it. You could take the easy lit path, but by doing so you have already imposed limitations. You want something different? Look somewhere else, trail your own path. Quit being insane and brave like a madman.

Once you have made your choice, once you have flipped the coin, the important part is to keep moving forward. Get as far away as possible from where you started. It will burn every fiber of your being but eventually the ashes will birth something beautiful from its soil.

Always keep in mind you are unlimited energy. Therefore, the untapped strength you seek can only be retrieved from within.

So the question isn’t ‘will I make it’. The answer has already transcended such infant inquiries.

The question then becomes – what do I fear most?

Then trade implausibility with a chemistry set and invent the cure.

Alacrity

[First Creek Canyon Trail] Las Vegas, NV

They said it couldn’t be done.

They said it wasn’t possible.

They all said to toe the line,

To march a rhythm like everyone else.

Never stand out, never leave your mark.

That you will fail, flounder, and fidget, between thumb and forefinger, if you do not blend.

…Not only did I derail the track, I took off further than the imagination can stretch

Not only do they look like fools, they’ve become beggars behind sad and hungry puppy dog eyes.

Not only did I prove them wrong, I found a better truth.

None will be left behind.

Take my hand, I will pull you out too.

If you query the night’s resolve, it is darkness in absolution

None more quiet or still than the immobilizing isolation witnessed by a thousand flickers

The hustle of the day punctuated by the night in hushed bicker

Muting or even pausing calloused hands for a moment of contrition

 

“The deeds carried by my spirit are of selfish nature,

I carry on catering to the ultimate needs of my own being,

I may suffer and pander eternal, but I bare my teeth with clear seeing,

That I would rather burn by candlelight than shackle the day indentured”

 

As the night progresses still, I have surpassed and claimed master

Still against the spotlights, immovable to my own account

Burning desire holds me steadfast, patient to an unlimited amount

Trudging slowly throughout the day as my dreams at night replay faster and faster…

 

I am not afraid, I shall fear none

Not even in the absence of light shall steal the pain of discipline

Slave to my own ambition, never to give in

For my vessel is my own, not a duplicate, but one.
