Yesterday I ended up in a YouTube wormhole that led to a compilation of Trump’s funniest moments. In-between the hilarity was a pretty profound statement made by the Donald. When asked if he’s ever asked God for forgiveness…
I am not sure I have, I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don’t think so. I think if I do something wrong, I think, I just try and make it right. I don’t bring God into that picture. I don’t.”
I love that attitude man. I think it’s exactly how you can stay in the present and moving forward. The ego and pride are the haters of progress. They’re what get in the way of recognizing your actions. They make you care about things that just don’t matter and look outside of yourself. Usually the best thing to do in all situations is to take yourself out of the equation. To put your energy toward solutions. That’s impossible to do if you think the world revolves around you. You don’t need God to help, you don’t need the world to understand your struggle, it’s not that deep.
But there’s a million reasons to romanticize the past and they all start with the ego. Good or bad, sad or happy, memories make for good movies in the minds eye. So good you’ll watch them over and over, all the while ignoring the life unfolding in front of you.
I lose my mind, I lose my mind to forget you…”
That’s exactly what happens. Why? Because it’s not real man. Like I said a couple of days ago, once something happens it goes from realty to virtual reality. You might as well put on an Oculus Rift and go indulge in your memories. There’s nothing wrong with that, just be mindful, know you’re in the shadows.
I related to this song once upon a time, so much so that I would dive into music like this. I can still do it, especially when it sounds this good but now I know I’m watching a movie. It’s just not real anymore. I’m where Foreign Air is, I took back my Halo, reclaimed my mind and got back to living. Don’t victimize yourself, don’t blame others. Agree with his politics or not, the Toupee speaks truth, you just have to do what’s right. For yourself, and everyone else. Enjoy.
