My Life

This blog is no longer active. There will be no more posts here.

All good things must come to an end, they say. But some good things just evolve and change form. I’m now working on a new method of delivering content, and will talk about that further below.

If you came to this blog from a search query, I’m sorry that what you’re looking for is no longer available here. It was a part of my life that is no longer necessary for me to continue displaying. I hope that you can find what you’re looking for.

I’m now completely focused on writing and publishing here:

Google+ is where I write my thoughts and observations about life, people, social media, and personal growth. I invite you to connect with me here.

Thinkwisely.net is where you can sign up for a free letter to your Inbox every day. It’s where you can join me on a journey to find wisdom and apply it in our lives.

To those of you who have been following this blog for some time now, I invite you to sign up to Google+ so you can continue to share this journey with me. Signing up to thinkwisely.net will allow you to continue receiving my work that is not being shared publicly.

If anyone would like to email me, please feel free to do so.

Thank you.

I feel like untethering

December 12, 2011 · 3 comments

My favorite Internet guy right now is a young guy by the name of Ev Bogue (links to his G+ profile). He’s untethered from his life, and he writes a lot about his life and insights now that he’s no longer bound to the restrictions the rest of us choose for ourselves.

He travels, lives in hotels, has all his possessions in a backpack, and is getting to know himself and this world in a very interesting way.

For a few years now I’ve been looking into minimalism. It’s where you live a ‘minimal’ lifestyle, with few possessions and few restrictions. No debts is a big part of it, because all debt is a ‘bondage’. You’re forced into a kind of slavery, having to work to pay the bills and the debts.

Of course, it’s a slavery of our own choosing. No one holds a gun to our head and forces us to buy things we can’t afford… But being part of this capitalist, debt-fueled society means that living in debt is our reality.

Dropping out of society always seems attractive, but we like the things we can have. We like the gadgets, the lifestyle, the choices that are available to us. But they’re all an illusion.

The reality is slavery o our own ideas of what we should be part of.

So Ev and others like him are an inspiration to me. With them sharing their insights and experiences, they’re helping me see how I can untether as well. And the more they share with me, the more inclined I am to find ways of untethering from the bondages within my own life as well.

Would you like to untether too? Have you untethered? How did you go about it? Please share your experiences in the comments.

What a great day

29 November 2011

What a great day I’ve had! I had the day off work today, because it’s MY day. 🙂 Fanfan made me breakfast, which was lovely. Then I went and bought some recovery gear for my FJ Cruiser (some roll-up tracks to be used if the vehicle gets bogged), had lunch with a friend, chilled out […]

A review of the past year

28 November 2011

I know I’ve been active on Google+ and this post really should be there, but it just doesn’t feel right at the moment to put blog posts on G+.  It’s not a mature enough product to act as a blogging tool, so I’m essentially returning to this blog and will continue writing in here. Don’t […]

So much has happened

21 July 2011

It’s been about 7 weeks since I last posted on this blog. In that time, so much has happened, it’s just been a whirlwind of awesomeness. I met a wonderful woman in Melbourne and I’ve been astounded by how right she is for me. Her name is Fanfan, and she’s the dream that I’ve had […]

Are you an Indigo adult?

19 March 2011

A few months ago, a friend of mine suggested to me that I might be an Indigo. “Eh? What’s that?” I thought to myself, and then, like everything that comes into my life that I don’t know about, I Google it to learn what it is. What I discovered about Indigos intrigued me. I felt […]

Being psychic

13 February 2011

A long time ago I used to be a practicing psychic, able to read people’s past and future. I had some reasonable success with this, including converting skeptics into believers when I told them things about their past that I couldn’t have possibly known. This was all about 18-20 years ago. But I had a […]

Time to clean house

There are 1,174 posts on this site, along with 1,288 approved comments (not to mention the 11,000 spam comments….). I’ve decided to clean it all up. There’s over 12 years worth of blogging here, with an average of almost 100 posts per year over that time (or almost 2 posts per week, every week, for […]

My purpose

7 February 2011

Over the weekend i discovered that I’ve been working towards my purpose for quite a while now. It has to do with helping people with their own self-empowerment. I’ve been doing this with this blog over the years, with my work to an extent, and with an online computer game I play. Everything I do […]
