Survival of the Fittest: Joe Rogan – Do What You Love, Because Society Is A Trap And Work Is Meaningless

Question: Are you actually contributing to society or are you just paying the bills?

Here, comedian Joe Rogan talks about work and meaning in his own unique style, asking some important (and sometimes uncomfortable) questions about what our purpose is as a society, and as an individual. Aren’t we supposed to be contributing? He asks. Is contributing the same as working? Rogan concludes that these two things are entirely separate, at least in most cases, and has some thought-provoking advice for anyone who is stuck in a job they hate…follow your dreams instead.

Poetry Mondays – Hope is the Thing with Feathers by Emily Dickinson

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul,

And sings the tune without the words,

And never stops at all.

And sweetest in the gale is heard;

And sore must be the storm

That could abash the little bird

That kept so many warm.

I’ve heard it in the chilliest land

And on the strangest sea;

Yet, never, in extremity,

It asked a crumb of me.

Motivation Monday – The Many Benefits of Push Ups

4

Don’t have time to go to the gym?

Do some push ups then!!! #GetitIn #NoExcuses

Push-ups are one of the oldest and most basic of exercises for a simple reason. They work.

The exercise positions all the muscles in our upper body and builds optimal strength in the forearms, shoulders, chest. And for the ladies, they will “get rid of the jig” by targeting the upper arms. And when done properly, also put emphasis on building a strong core by stabilizing the abdominals and back.

There is even some benefits to your quads and hammies.

Artsy Fartsy – Vhils (Chinatown, Los Angeles) Courtsey of Birdman Photos (BLW Contributor)

  Vhils

Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto (1987) has been interacting visually with the urban environment

under the name of Vhils since his days as a prolific graffiti writer in the early 2000s.

His groundbreaking carving technique – which forms the basis of the Scratching the Surface series

and was first presented to the public at the VSP group show in Lisbon in 2007 and at the Cans Festival

in London in 2008 –, has been hailed as one of the most compelling approaches to art created in the

street in the last decade.

The Dragon’s Philosophy – The Intercepting Fist

Jeet Kune Do (JKD) literally translated from Chinese means “way of the intercepting fist”. It reflects Bruce Lee’s concepts, philosophy and training methods with regards to martial arts . Bruce Lee who started his base with Wing Chun Kung Fu eventually rejected the notion of sticking to one art and began exploring various other martial arts styles including boxing, judo, wrestling, savate and fencing . Bruce Lee disposed with ideals within a style adopting a flexible approach to seek what works best. He christened his martial art as Jeet Kune Do.

Trust your Spidey Senses-!!! – Ways to Better listen to your Intuition

“There is a growing body of anecdotal evidence, combined with solid research efforts, that suggests intuition is a critical aspect of how we humans interact with our environment and how, ultimately, we make many of our decisions,” said Ivy Estabrooke of the Office of Naval Research, who is investigating the power of intuition which has helped troops make important and quick decisions during combat.

Whether it’s deciding which job to take, which direction to turn when you’re lost, or how to handle a conflict in your family, intuition sometimes knows better than the rational mind. The problem is that many of us have buried that little voice so deeply within, we have a hard time hearing or feeling where it is guiding us.

The good news is that your intuition is still there, you merely have to learn to hear it again.

THE INTUITIVE WAY: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO INCREASING YOUR AWARENESS

TO BETTER LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITION, TRY:

  1. Meditation:  Spend time in silence, simply listening.

  2. Commune with nature:  Aim to get at least sometime outside every single day.

  3. Creativity:  Tap into your internal artist by drawing, writing, painting, or making music.
  4.  Learn to listen:  In general, listen to friends, families, silence, and yourself.
  5.  Be body conscious:  Learn to appreciate the little signs and signals from your body, when it tells you it’s tired, joyful, in need of love, or getting sick.
  6.  Let go:  Warm up to the idea that you don’t have to control everything. Life is going to happen whether you overthink it or not. Relax.

  7. Stay positive:  A 2013 study in the journal Psychological Science found that being in a good mood boosted participant’s abilities to make intuitive calls in a word game. So smile!

Working on becoming more intuitive requires you to adopt healthier habits and a healthier mindset. These are things that are good for your mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing, no matter your end goal. And if cultivated regularly, they could lend themselves to better decision making and more happiness overall.
