The Resistance

Dream for 11/5/2021 I dreamt I was driving a car through a nicer part of a dreary town in the Midwest of the United States. In another scene, I was on a mountain where I met three Native American boys ages 11 to 12 who were wearing traditional outfits worn before the Caucasians forced their culture upon them. They had horses for their transportation. I joined them. We embarked on a quest to fight the resistance, the forces that beat humans down until they submit to the slavery of popular culture. The boys and I quickly became friends. By being with them, the child in me fully returned. I was no longer an adult. Imagination was thriving in me again....

Daily Action Plan

For my productivity system, I like to write my daily action plan into the event details in my Google Calendar. This is the notes area. Then I schedule my daily action plan in my Google Calendar itself, blocking time out for each goal in my plan. Next, I paste a copy of my daily action plan in my Notion app, a notes app that I use for my note taking, research, and writing - my second brain. I also paste a copy of my daily action plan in Discord with my accountability partner. At the end of the day, I tally up my accomplishments for the day. My work is quantifiable by time and/or amount of work completed. I also...

Sharing a part of me with you is my medicine.

Sharing a part of me with you is my medicine.It's better than pushing myself to oblivion. There's no meaning when you don't care.So I write my purpose over and over with despair.Everything I was comfortable with is spinning out of sight.Maybe this is my last fight. - Poem, Positive Masters, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 6/27/2020 -I dedicate this poem to you if you're feeling anxious or depressed or are helping a loved one who is.

I hold the warmth of your lonely soul - Part 2.

I hold the warmth of your lonely soul. Let your fears go. Let them fly away and dissipate. That's how we'll make our escape. - +positive masters+, Jon Riki Karamatsu, Poem, 6/22/2019 - You can be physically lonely, and you can be mentally lonely. Your fears can control your mind. You may keep them within you because you don't want anyone to see your vulnerability. However, by talking about your fears to someone who is understanding, that person may be able to help you to take the necessary steps to push away your perception of your fears, which are often distorted. Talk therapy or psychotherapy with an understanding person can help you break out of your blown out of proportion...
