Dr. Masaru Emoto, a researcher and alternative healer from Japan has given the world a good deal of evidence of the magic of positive thinking. He became famous when his water molecule experiments featured in the 2004 film, What The Bleep Do We Know? His experiments demonstrate that human thoughts and intentions can alter physical reality, such as the molecular structure of water. Given that humans are comprised of at least 60% water, his discovery has far reaching implications… can anyone really afford to have negative thoughts or intentions?

The rice experiment is another famous Emoto demonstration of the power of negative thinking (and conversely, the power of positive thinking.) Dr Emoto placed portions of cooked rice into two containers. On one container he wrote “thank you” and on the other “you fool”. He then instructed school children to say the labels on the jars out loud…

5 Strategies for Keeping Your Sanity in This Insane World

Be Like Water

1. Tune out, take a break – If things are seeming dark, unrelenting and hopeless, and all that you can see is the bad news happening in our world, take a break. Turn off the TV, the computer, stop talking about it all, and find something else entirely to occupy your attention, at least for a bit.

2. Re-connect with nature – Get outside, leave the city, take a vacation and visit some place beautiful. Mother nature, although she is under duress right now, still has plenty of beauty and joy to give, and there are many places still to get away and re-connect to the natural rhythms of the earth and the plant and animal kingdoms.

3. Re-build your routines – The mind is a creature of habit, and a persistent dark mood is as much a matter of habit as anything else. The mind can become…

What’s Eating Ryan Fu – Fill the Boot or Fix the Problem

I was driving into work, noticing there were firemen on each side of the street. I wondered what there were doing, then I saw a sign to “Fill the Boot”, a donation campaign to fund fireman programs. At first, I felt sad that I saw them out there trying to get donations from people. Then I got angry that these are the same people who risk their own lives to keep us safe. These are the guys who throw caution the in the wind and run into burning buildings.

It frustrates me when I seen rich athletes and movie stars walking around, not a care in the world, while our saviours are on the streets looking for handouts. I understand that they signed up for it knowing there wasn’t much money in it but there has to be a better way to help fund this important aspect of our society. If you see these fearless men out today please help them out, cause apparently our government isn’t it.

What’s Eating Ryan Fu – Tom Brady & Manny Pacquaio, A Nation Of Winners (It’s all out fault)

The NFL has suspended New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady for four games without pay in relation to the “Deflategate” incident in which the team was found to have used underinflated footballs for an advantage in the playoffs.

The Patriots were also fined $1 million and will forfeit its first-round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft and fourth-round pick in the 2017 draft, the league announced Monday.

His counterpart, Manny Pacquiao revealed in his postfight news conference that he fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. with what turned out to be a torn rotator cuff, he has been criticized for his handling of the injury.

He has even been sued by disgruntled fans who say he kept the injury hidden to keep the fight on schedule and preserve his payday of over $100 million.

Some people have the sense that Manny Pacquiao sold out for the money. And by fighting with a torn rotator cuff, not giving himself the best chance to win, he somehow perpetuated a fraud on the public. 

However, you feel about these two superstars situation, you must realize that we had a hand in their downfall. We are a Nation of Winners and we hate Losers. We put them on the highest of pedestals then we believe that they can do no wrong. But that’s where our own hubris comes into play because our heroes aren’t Gods, they are just like you and I. They feel the pressure to be successful and be perceived as a winner.

It fucking annoys me when one of our “heroes” falls short on our own standards, even though we didn’t have the courage to reach for the stars like they did. Then we get butt hurt when we realize they are just like you and I. Just normal people trying to be successful in their endeavors, feeling the pressures of being successful. So, let’s give these people a break because if we were in their shoes, we would have probably done the same thing.

What’s eating Ryan Fu? – Why are we here?

I just finished watching Angeline Jolie’s movie Unbroken about Louis “Louie” Zamperini who was always in trouble, but with the help of his older brother, he turns his life around and channels his energy into running, later qualifying for the 1936 Olympics. When World War II breaks out, Louie enlists in the military. After his plane crashes in the Pacific, he survives an incredible 47 days adrift in a raft, until his capture by the Japanese navy. Sent to a POW camp, Louie becomes the favorite target of a particularly cruel prison commander.

His whole story is about surviving the elements and torture camps. He never knew why he his life was spared but he continued to fight on even though his future looked bleak throughout the movie.

As he eloquently put it, “if I could take it, I can make it.”

Spoiler Alert – He survives dedicating his life to religion and being an inspiration to other people.

This brings me to the question:

Why are here? What are we meant to do with our lives?

I mean you’ve probably asked these questions before to yourself but it fucking bugs me when I see my friends and co workers that do not want to do anything with their lives because they are too scared or they don’t believe in themselves.

We were not meant to live dull normal lives. We all have the potential to live extraordinary lives with purpose.

So, I’ll ask it again,

Why are you here?

I’m here to tell stories…

What’s Eating Ryan Fu? – Your job sucks and you’re not passionate about it

I was just ready to get to bed when I got super depressed that I had to go to work in the morning in which I’m not interested in doing anymore but I have to do it. I’m basically just doing it for a paycheck. I behave like a machine just going through the motions in the day. I know what you are thinking, why don’t you just get another job? But I don’t think another shitty job will replace an already shitty job.

I’m trying my hardest to do what I love to do but I’m not getting paid to live off on it yet.

Is this life?

Fuck this boulder!

What’s Eating Ryan Fu? (Things that annoy the shit out of me)

Hey there BLW fans, just wanted to create a new topic because maybe because I just needed a place to vent my feelings out and share what the hell is pissing me off which hopefully I’m not the only person is going thru the same shit.

So, right now what’s eating at me is fucking Page Numbers!!!

I’m currently finishing up my first book and I’m self publishing which I’m in the process of uploading my finished product and I’m not meeting the current criteria for publishing it yet because of the page numbers and some other minor details.

The reason why I wanted to self publish is because I wanted my first book the way I wanted it to be. The way I envisioned it when I first started. I totally understand that you need page numbers for reference points, but when does it hinder the art? Do you stop reading because of the page numbers?

It’s a piece of art even though it’s with words it is still a piece of art.

I decided fuck it. So, maybe the page numbers don’t really match up, does it really matter or does the material matter more?

Does the art matter more then what’s it on? Do you really care about the frame?

Thanks for listening.

If you write a half hour a day it makes a lot of writing year by year. To be sure all day and every day you are waiting around to write that half hour a day.

– Gertrude Stein

I’ve struggled this entire week to feel inspired. Maybe it wasn’t that I was uninspired, but unmotivated. Who knows. Either way, I’ve struggled to write. Actually, I don’t think I even tried to write. I just knew it would be hard so didn’t bother to face the failure by trying. I turned on my computer out of habit but quickly occupied myself looking at interio design websites, photos of well organised offices, and watching youtube videos. I avoided reading. Even that seemed to require too much mental focus. I exercised one morning to try and cultivate some energy but that exhausted me for the whole day so I didn’t bother trying that again. Somehow today, because the sun was shining for the first time in days and I couldn’t excuse missing it by spending yet another day indoors, I managed to walk to the library. Usually I work on ideas as I walk, but today I noticed how devoid of ideas I was and spent the whole walk wondering what it was I was actually going to do once I reached the library. Turn around and walk straight back home again, I guess.

Uncomfortable just sitting with a blank page, I grabbed a copy of Mason Currey’s Daily Rituals: How great minds make time, find inspiration, and get to work. I was hoping to find a magic routine, one infallible in summoning inspiration. I wasn’t struck so much by the rituals of these talents, but that they all alluded to have the same struggle.

Most had a comment to make about good days and bad, easy fast writing, and hard slow writing. I read about Gertrude Stein and was astounded to discover that she only wrote for half an hour a day. As she says though, half an hour soon adds up to a lot of writing. I realised that I’ve been pushing myself too hard, hence the burn out this week. I expect myself to just emerge from years of darkness and sit and labour away for eight hours a day, every day. And every minute I sit there with nothing to write, I lash myself in punishment for failing. But I don’t need to write in one continuous stream for eight hours straight. In fact, the more I read, the more I realise that’s not really how it works anyway and that these famous writers’ habits are in many ways quite similar to mine.

What differs is their discipline, their willingness to sit there and wait. They show up. It reminded me of a talk by Elizabeth Gilbert I’d seen years ago about the ‘elusive creative
genius’ as she calls it.

Here’s the talk: 

So I decided to write for half an hour today. This is what I came up with. It’s not genius, it’s not even well written. But it is a piece of writing, and I was the one who wrote it.

So, same time tomorrow?
