The more you resist it, the harder it is. The more you tense up, The more difficult it is to get into the position you need to be. The more you try to force it, The less you are able to accomplish.
The steering jerked to the right - towards the 18-wheeler. I watched in complete silence as the car spun towards the back end of the truck. I was so sure that we were going to SMASH into the back of the truck. And just as though we were in one of those Fast & Furious movies, the front end of the car glided right behind the back end of the truck, across 2 lanes. Ok, so we missed the truck, for sure we were ending up in the ditch. Wait, what were my hands doing? How were my hands moving? Apparently, I had been counter-steering - without realizing. The car began to spin the other way, across 3 lanes. Towards the concrete barriers at the median. At that point, either the concrete barriers would stop us or cars would smash into us from behind.

Nothing stops us from raising the dead... Continue Reading →
What are you afraid of? What keeps you up at night? Honestly, I have been scared. Scared, without realizing that I am afraid. Scared, with no certainty of what I am scared of. Scared, of the unknown. Scared, of what is to come. Often times, we say the right things, have the right answers, read... Continue Reading →
...Sometimes, to better understand where you are going, you need to look back on where you are coming from... Often times I forget the bondage from which I was freed. The bondage masked under pleasure. The bondage masked under 'societal norm'. The bondage masked under capitalism. The bondage masked under liberalism. The bondage which by... Continue Reading →
