what do you do to relax yourself personally? just out of curiosity

- Asked by televised-poison

Having meticulously structured my days, I’ve conditioned myself to become very tired at a particular time of night.  I will otherwise have no desire to relax throughout the day and am always seeking more efficient methods of maintaining energy and momentum.  My will to refine and commune far exceeds any desire for relaxation, especially when accompanied by methods of escapism that derail momentum, which I would regard as stagnation (aside from certain occasions where relaxation were significantly relevant to one’s health, of course).

Having suffered from such an agonizing depression for most of my youth and regarding sleep as my favorite time of day, how inspiring it feels now to regard it as the most disappointing.

What even is normal?

Stability of repetition, patterns we create or submit to.

The term “normal” is primarily utilized in our society to positively reinforce conformity and adherence to the status quo, however there is absolutely no rational reason to regard what is widely accepted and commonplace as the best option.  Those utilizing normality as a basis of differentiating what is right from what is wrong, act as the prison guards to unknowingly maintain our captivity to our system of corporate and government brainwashing.

"People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain."

I feel like I'm being held back by people in my life, but I don't want to lose them. What should I do?

Risk embracing your authentic self around them, and gauge how they react.  Explain yourself in response to their confusion.  If they attempt to undermine your initiative, reveal this to them, and if they continue to refuse to accept you, then you have to move on.

We progress as individuals, not as a collective, hence the schism we will often find ourselves in regarding maintaining long-term relationships with others.  For those beside us either unwilling or unable to grow, we must decide between consenting certain aspects of our time to a stagnant (even possibly self destructive) dynamic based purely on sentiments, or the uncomfortable but often necessary transition into temporary separation from certain others.

I'd like to know how do you cherish your inner child.

Embrace the curiosity that you have been conditioned to forsake.  Re-acclimate yourself to celebrating sensation, emotion, and relationships, rather than material possessions that offer no fulfillment.  Ground yourself in the moment rather than a labyrinth of abstraction and you will have rediscovered the innate appreciation for living that often becomes obscured in societal obligation, and pressure from blind, neurotic authority figures.

do you have any advice for someone suffering from chronic general anxiety and occasional panic attacks?

- Asked by Anonymous

Anxiety is often the product of interpreting a myriad of sensory phenomena and considering so many factors while trying to organize an effective strategy to remain secure and exist efficiently.  Focus less on a completely fail safe strategy (because it’s impossible) and more on persistence.

Recognize the difference between the fear of a worse case scenario and the scenario actually taking place, you can’t react to possibilities, they’re still only an idea.  There is opportunity between you and that which you fear taking place, to steer direction to a more desirable outcome.

Intelligence and anxiety go hand in hand, but so do intelligence and empowerment, all depending on the will to educate oneself, persist, refine, and create.  Don’t forget that feeling insecure to an extent is rational, only denial yields the self destructive complacency that we often falsely believe we desire.

How can i ever forget someone im dreaming about every night thinking about everyday but they're out of reach?

- Asked by Anonymous

You must readjust focus or you will wither away.  Reconfigure you energy so that rather than mourn this disappointment, you are utilizing the pain to pursue other ambitions.  Visualize yourself screaming, take deep breaths.  Do what you must so long as you maintain momentum.

*Do not immerse yourself in escapism or indulge in substance abuse.  These are methods of avoiding necessary pain and perpetually hindering your growth.

What do you think is the appropriate age to start the self empowerment journey? Or is there not an age? I'm 15, & since the start of adolescence, I've gained interest in philosophy & psychology & I want to pursuit it. How do I commence the journey?

It is never too soon to desire a more fulfilling life, to possess knowledge and the empowerment that this yields.  Education is not an institution, it is the initiative to remain present and receptive, to maintain a perspective grounded in logic, and to sustain a discipline that ensures you remain cognitively capable of doing this.  Experience, reflect, organize, adjust perspective with knowledge attained, and resume action.

Your desire to begin is a beginning in itself.
