Living In Gratitude

Thankful, Grateful, and Blessed

It has been my personal experience that you can spot a person who lives in gratitude. As my dear friend used to ask: “Are you bragging or are you complaining?”

Living a life of gratitude means that you see the glass as half full.

Living a life in gratitude means that you appreciate simple things.

Do you have a roof over your head?

Do you have a stomach full of food?

Do you have a little cash in your pocket?

Do you have a little money in the bank?

Well, guess what, dear reader?

OMG, do you know what?

You are doing better than most people.

A fundamental lesson that I learned in 1994:

The process is the journey.

Be Here Now

You can’t change your past.

You can’t predict the future.

All you can do is be here now.

This blog post was supposed to be online yesterday, and so many people were texting, emailing, and calling me it never happened, LOL.

It is what it is.

There is no privacy anymore, so if you cannot be an authentic person and speak the truth 100% of the time, please don’t read blogs like this because your cognitive dissonance is too strong.

Most likely, you are living in a world of Normalcy Bias.

What is that?

Normalcy Bias is when you think that the world you live in will remain the same.

Guess what?

It won’t

There is a life we live with and a life we learn with.

Bring Out Your Dead

Do You Know What You Believe?

“I don’t know what to believe anymore!”

One of the fascinating characters that I have studied throughout my life is Edward Bernays. If you don’t know his work, he is considered by many to be the Godfather of Public Relations.

If you look deeper at his background, you will also discover that he was the nephew of Sigmund Freud, the modern Father of Psychiatry.

Enjoy being controlled.

Edward Bernays learned a lot watching his Uncle Freud, and back in 1928, he wrote the definitive book “Propaganda.”

Now you know why you believe what you believe.

If you want to know why a platform like Facebook or Twitter is so popular, you will discover it by reading Propaganda.

It Is What It Is

Can you believe this?

This has truly been a strange day. I’ve attempted to post this blog posting since early this morning and events are happening so quickly that I didn’t even have time to write my usual commentary.

So that I can honor my promise to my Executive Producer and God, here is a little audio clip. A very dear long-distance friend sent this to me and I had to share it with you.

Can you believe this?

Writing Is In My DNA

Keep On Spinning.

The reason I write every day is that I have to. Writing is in my DNA. While I have spent a good portion of my professional life in a radio or music studio, it’s the writing that motivates me to get up in the morning.

Over the years, I have left a remnant of my former self as I find old blogs and websites that were once live.

There are always options.

Here are three quick things to do if you are feeling stuck:

One). Write about what you love.

Two). Don’t worry about how many followers you have.

Three). Consider publishing a “soft launch.” (What is a soft launch? It is where You launch your web or blog site without being picked up by search engines.

Here are three articles that I found that I found that helped me, and hopefully, they will help you too:

What You Do?

Shift Happens, True Or True?

You are waking up and it’s not the Coffee.

From my perspective, there are three types of people in the world in 2021.

People that know what is happening.

People that think they know what is happening.

People that are clueless about what is happening.

If you look around you and more of your life doesn’t make any sense to you, that is a good thing.

Why?

You are waking up.

The Vibration Of Words

Each Word You Use Has Its Own Vibration.

Each word that you speak has an energy to it. Said one way, words can empower and delight us. Said another way, words can leave us feeling exhausted and desperate.

My joke over the years has been “Find Out What Poor People Read And Don’t Read That Stuff Anymore!”

It’s all in the grooves.

David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. wrote an amazing book back in 1995 titled: Power Vs. Force.

This book was a game-changer for me. Not only do I own the book, but I have also bought this book for many others over the years.

I Don’t Know What To Believe Anymore

Tell-Lie-Vision

The most common statement that I hear so many people say is: “I don’t know what to believe any more.” It makes sense to me that people feel that way.

America as we all know is in huge transition. We can either see America’s best days ahead  of us or we can see America as only Empire and gasping for it’s last breath.

When I see horse manure I know there is a pony nearby.

Right now I see great opportunity for America because while we have not been a Constitutional Republic since 1871, our DNA is totally different than Europe.

As Americans, there is only one way that we can move forward.

Do you know what it is?

Answer: We got this!

We are all exactly where we are supposed to be. So make yourself a French Press, Pour Yourself a Cold One, or just Smoke Out.

Why?

Answer: It is what it is. Systems will fall and as Americans we won’t fall because we have an original DNA that is different than Mother England.

Live in faith.

Be Here Now.

Love Is The Answer.

Let’s not go to war okay?

A little tribute to my favorite truther RR.

Living An Authentic Life

Tell The Truth No Matter What!

The ability, to tell the truth, is not something that comes easy to most people. Why is this? Most people will basically just tell people what they think you want to hear. This has a lot to do with social programming, circumstances, and the environment you live in.

How can you make your life more authentic?

Turn Off Your Tell-Lie Vision!

Do you see the pattern when you watch this?

These were some insights that I found on the internet that may help you:

“We can only control people if we tell half-truth; if we shade what’s true, but if we tell the total truth, then our inside in on the outside. There is nothing hidden inside. For most human beings, to have their inside exposed on the outside brings up incredible fear.” – Adyashanti

https://www.pickthebrain.com/5-reasons-tell-truth/

As a kid my Mom (RIP) always stressed the importance of telling the truth. She used to say, “Honey if you tell the truth you may be in trouble, but if you lie to me you are in deep shit.”


The truth can have deeper meaning especially when You tell your side of the story, then I tell my side of the story, then we discover the facts. The facts have changed because of what Social Media has done to our society. My personal point of view? Long term I think that living on Social Media can make you mentally ill. Why do I think this? The answer is simple, so many people that I know have both a personal and a business social media account. 

The personal account is the truth while the professional account is all about their brand! Okay, so you want to ber a brand, no worries.

Here is what FastCompany has to say about it:

We’re living in an Audio Renaissance right now. You might not have noticed yet, but your ears certainly have.

Everyday life is full of soundmojis, voice assistants, and IoT devices that speak in sonic languages. Social platforms like TikTok and Clubhouse only work with sound. Amazon even sells “You’re On Mute” T-shirts. And the global sound-on movement isn’t simply anecdotal. Sixty-seven million Americans listen to podcasts every month, audio streaming has increased 32% year over year, and 41% of people in the U.S. use voice search every day.

Of course, whenever there’s a seismic shift in consumer behavior, it’s followed by a seismic shift in brand behavior. Marketers need to constantly pivot to meet their customers where they’re at. So, it should come as no surprise that the number of global companies investing in sonic branding is increasing exponentially.

In 2021, our research shows a 22% jump in brands launching audio identities for the very first time. It’s a phenomenon happening across industries, from financial services and autos to tech and retail. Global giants such as American Express, Frito-Lay, Colgate, General Mills, and Walmart have significantly increased their sonic investments in the last 18 months.

New Zealand Taught Me That We All Self Medicate

“It’s 420 Somewhere!”™

It was a lovely spring day back in 2007. Of course, when it’s summer in New Zealand, it’s winter in America.

The Hardware Cafe Located in Titirangi.

One of my favorite handouts when I first arrived in New Zealand was a lovely coffee shop, the Hardware Cafe, which is located on the West Side of Auckland.

Most weeks, I would end up having two or three meetings at the Hardware Cafe.

This particular morning, I met with an established filmmaker who was excited to pitch me his newest documentary.

A Flat White Coffee at The Hardware Cafe.

There was something very unique about our meeting. What was it? Did he order an Expresso Coffee, which is typical for the morning? Yes, he did.

Then he ordered an ice-cold Heineken lager beer.

He drank his expresso while I drank my Flate White, and then he proceeded to drink his Heineken. I asked him, “Hey John, what’s the deal with the beer?” His answer: “Mitch, we all self-medicate, and I love a beer after my coffee.”

It didn’t hit me how much we self-medicate until I came back to America.

Without mentioning any names to protect the guilty, I have one friend who gets up in the morning, has a coffee, then takes a hit of Cannabis, next a bottle of beer by mid-day. In the afternoon? Hmm, maybe some Opediate like Zanex in the afternoon or early evening.

Next, I started to look at the statistics for the drug epidemic in America.

We All Self Medicate.

It is not my place to judge what others do. Since I was 19 years of age, I’ve enjoyed coffee and didn’t discover Cannabis until I was 35.

Cannabis is a lot different than the prescription drug crisis. Cannabis, by nature, is a culture that is socially based. There is a much bigger issue with Cannabis around banking that continues Cannabis as a cash business.

Yes, we all self-medicate. Me? It’s time for a coffee.

Humanity Is At The Crossroads

It will be interesting to see how the next year plays out. Here in California, Cannabis laws are very open. One person told me that if you fly over Los Angeles, it looks like a big stoner concert, the whole town looks like a Cannabis cloud.

Of course, I think that the reason that there is a cloud over Los Angeles is from all the Geo-Engineering in the air.
