True Experience is priority with being focused on the moment.
Music and Nature. I'm in constant movement and try to remain happily unemployed unless there is worthwhile enslavement for a period, usually seasonal temporary work...trimming. Always seeking adventure, played music for years, gone on tours around the States and Europe, playing in hardcore punk bands such as....
but...I'm into lots of types of music ...I love backpacking in remote wilderness areas where things are still pure and I can breath in pure fresh life energy and finally think without distractions...It's where I go to connect with the absolute stillness of existence. Ecologically conscious.
Love and Respect all that exists, create a positive influence through your own actions....we create and succeed off inspiration, go out of yourself. Any Revolution starts within yourself, it's a waste of time to worry about others and what they do, your actions make the difference, lead without claim to lead or to commend what is "right"...balance is the ultimate, harmonize the dark/light within yourself, be honest with yourself and everything follows.
