“To know yourself as the Being underneath the thinker, the stillness underneath the mental noise, the love and joy underneath the pain, is freedom, salvation, enlightenment.” — Eckhart Tolle
Sink or Swim.
We’re not immovable objects.
There’s a fine line between understanding the world and being broken by it.
In understanding, you don’t become jaded from the truth. You aren’t in a panic when you hear bad news.
Sink or Swim…
Social contracts are all we have.
How will a woman love you with shaky hands?
Would you trust a reflection of you when your life was on the line?
Isn’t it true that a lot of us are like that? Desperately hoping that if we mimic the people around us they will leave us alone?
That the world will fall into line and things will go back to sunshine and rainbows?
If you want to live in the fantasy, it’s falling apart… Be careful.
But if you want to live as though there’s nothing but barriers we must overcome, you may be on the path towards becoming a Rational Male.
The book we choose this week, The Rational Male by Rollo Tomassi gives you an introduction to a reality that’s becoming more prevalent by the day.
Drop the marriage and the mime outfit. There’s a bigger world out there…
This Monday we’re premiering our exclusive interview with Rodney Gainous Jr on his new book First Quarter.
We think it’s a conversation that in these unprecedented times could be a sign of hope and possibility. Here’s an excerpt from the back of the book:
“The first quarter of anyone’s life is a time of change and discovery, but for Rodney Gainous Jr his first 25 years had more in store for him than most.
From gaming addiction to the scary world of Cancer, PTSD, and ADHD; this is a young man who has already seen and experienced a lot.
He knows what it means to go broke, and to take larger than life risks to launch his own comeback. Be inspired, be energized, and have the confidence to be all you can be; just like Rodney Gainous Jr has dared to do.”
The interview will drop Monday, April 6th at 7:30 PM EST.
