Steal A Job Pay The Price

Awww man! Billy G. went H.A.M on the metal faces recently
 
What am I talking about?
 
Well our friend the computer nerd Bill Gates says that
 
Robots need to pay taxes because they are taking money from
 
Others that would pay taxes.
 
 
Damn Bill why you had to come at the robots like that?
 
 
But you know, Bill actually has a pretty good point.
 
You see, the robots that people are employing have helped
 
Companies save wads of cash that they are in turn, not using
 
So you have a lose-lose here where companies are taking potential
 
Dollars and instead of it circulating in the economy, it simply gets
 
Tucked away for a rainy day (like maybe when the robots revolt?)
 
 
But there is a valuable lesson that we can all take away from this.

I would like you to consider that hoarding is stealing.

 
Call it karma or what have you
 
But when you take something from one place after awhile
 
Without replacing it, it either
 
A) Will cease to exist or 
B) Will want back what you took from it
Either way, its apparent that something like value has to either be
 
Redistributed or returned. 
 
So now the question is, what do you have that you are holding on to?
 
What do you have that has value that needs to go back out in the world?
 
Would Bill Gates say that you are stealing?
 
Maybe…
 
 
But the point here isn’t actually about whether you’re stealing 
 
It’s really what you’re giving.
 
And I hope for all of our sake it’s at least 
 
 
A damn…

P.S. This one got away from me a little, but I hope it doesn’t distract from
 
The point that I’m trying to make about the importance of sharing 
Your highest value with the world.
I suppose I could have summed this email with one simple rule
Redistribute what you can’t return. Talk soon…

The Death (and life) of Curiosity…

Ha! What’s going on broham? We had a beautiful day in the PHI today
 
And I honestly didn’t want to stay inside at all. 
 
I had a few things that I was supposed to do to get ready for mama bear’s arrival 
 
And honestly Breezus, I got maybe a quarter of my to do list done.
 
 
Sheesh, sunny days wrecking my cleaning plans…
 
Happens to the best of us I spose.
 
 
NE hooooo, I wanted to talk to you today about something I’ve
 
Been discussing with a few friends now.
 
It’s been a topic in my online private Facebook group Project SELFFY
I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about it before
 
You wanna know what it is?
….
….
….
Curiosity. Ha!
 
You know curiosity supposedly killed the cat, but it can be
 
A very powerful way to discover a better way to live. 
 
 
You see while I was fiddling around indoors today
 
I accidentally pressed a button on my computer and I had
 
No idea what it even did then it took me about 5 minutes to
 
Set my computer back to how I am used to using it.
 
 
It was then I thought to myself
 
This is ridiculous, I use this thing everyday, but I don’t know 
 
What the hell some of the buttons even do?
 
 
So curiosity set in and I pressed them all.
 
A few times it asked if I wanted to change a setting here or there
 
But nothing really happened, I didn’t die…
 
 
I would like you to consider that curiosity can be a very powerful tool.
 
It is a door that leads us to experience an alternative life if we dare push.
 
The problem is that we all think that there isn’t anything better for us
 
On the other side of the door. 
 
 
I like to think of all of us like cats and having 9 lives (maybe more)
 
No, not in the literal past lives, kinda way. 
 
I mean the life that you lead dies once you become enlightened to
 
A new way of thinking. 
 
 
So the moral of the story?
 
 
Don’t be afraid to do some digging, you never know what treasures you’ll find.

Chuuuuch! (I’m scared )

So I was talking to my mom the other day as I sometimes do when I want to be told that I need to shave my beard

Normally by mid conversion I get the usual “why don’t you own a house yet,” shpeel
But this time she was on something way different

She said why don’t you go to church?

I said well my church is when I read books like the bible and listen to ministers on tv.

She says to me in that motherly tone,

That’s not enough

You see what you may not know about me is that I grew up in a…

Church…Like, I mean not going Trick or Treating because it was the devil’s holiday,
Knowing the books of the bible in chronological order,
Grandma praying with me everywhere we went…
Grew up in a church

So in this industry and in this time it is hard for me to sometimes identify with the complexities of it all so I bail when it comes to anything religious nowadays and hope my education and good works will get me into heaven…if there is one.

Son, she said to me,
It’s not only about learning more
But it’s being consistent with your studies as well as fellowshipping.

Damn

Mom was right.
It’s exactly what I’ve been telling my program members for years not to mention, you the reader for almost 2 months now.

You’ve got to be consistent and you’ve got to do it with people that will keep you accountable.

Ah shucks, I hate it when mom is right!

So what do I do?

Well here it is about 2:30PM on
Saturday and you know what?

I didn’t go 🙁

You know why?
Well Joseph, let me hold your amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat for a brief moment while I relate this to you

*shakes it out* Frankly, I pussed out
(Here’s your coat back)
I was just too scared of what people would think of me.
They would judge all that I did
All that I said
All the time I had been away
I just couldn’t
Not today

Wow, sounds a lot like when YOU haven’t been to the gym in awhile right?

Damn

Dood, I feel ya. I’m like 120% percent there
What’s worse?
I feel worse that I didn’t go and I’m already having anxiety about whether I should go next Sunday.

It’s like anything broseph
We get all upset and worried that people are gonna notice our insecurities when in all actuality…
Everyone is too concerned about their own shit to even think about yours

No one is perfect and, I more than anyone, now understand that fact 100%
I just ask that you don’t make the same decision as I did today                                                       To choose to side with your fear over doing what’s good for you.

I almost don’t even feel right putting this link here because of how I feel about not going to church today, but if you want to join a group that really understands and respects those that want to make a difference in their lives,
And you’re a little braver than me today and are willing to take the next step to leaving fear and replacing it with fit. I urge you my brother to come forward to the alter
