meditationsMeditations and Motivations is me reading the writings of other people which inspire me to action and achievement or contemplation and comprehension.

I have to add in the usual disclaimer that I may not agree with everything I read in this series.  Agreement isn’t required however.  What is required is truth and success.

Why do they start and end with meditation bells?  Why is it raining in the background?  Because these are meditations.  You should listen to the words and contemplate them while sitting or engaging in some other form of meditation.

Or you can do what you want to do.  I’m not the Ancapadise dictator.

Meditations and Motivations 0003 – Not All Vampires Suck Blood! by Anton Szandor LaVey

It’s been a long time since I last discussed The Satanic Bible by Anton Szandor LaVey. I very often talk about psychic vampires and toxic people. Today for your meditation and motivation I read to you the chapter LaVey wrote about psychic vampires. This book is copyright 1696. Before social justice warriors and the expansion of the parasitical victim culture. As you listen think about how this applies to the social and financial parasites you are expected to care about and provide for. Then begin to remove people from your life you aren’t good for you. The parasites. The negative. … Continue reading →

Meditations and Motivations 0002 – Dramatic Reading: The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck by Mark Manson

Welcome to the second Meditations and Motivations. And yes, you are correct.  There was no podcast on Monday this week.  I was cleaning and maintaining my bikes. And recording this. And recording other MaMs. And eating ice cream. And not giving a fuck about getting a podcast out on Monday. I’ve talked about similar concepts for years. You can only care about so much. You have to pick your battles. You can’t give a fuck about everything. Mark Manson sums it all up pretty solid. I can quibble with a few sentences here and there. Yet his understanding of limited … Continue reading →

Meditations and Motivations 0001 – Dramatic Reading: Stop Being Such A Fucking Faggot.

Welcome to a new series. Not the new podcast I’ve been dropping hints about. This is a different new series. The idea here is that I will read writings which have inspired me. No commentary, no tangenting. Just reading the source material. The purpose is to motivate you. And of course to entertain you. And to motivate myself as I intend to use these for listening to while running, working or meditating. Yes. To serve as guided meditations. That’s why you will hear the meditation bell at the beginning and end of the reading. You’ll also hear the rain. I … Continue reading →
