First blog out of the pipe

June 2, 2012

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my first RevisedReality blog.  When I re-launched my website a few months ago, I considered the idea of including a blog, but was somewhat hesitant.  What would I say?  Would it make any difference?  Would anyone care?  These were some of my initial questions, and I have to admit blogging didn’t appeal that much to me.  As someone who consciously works to keep his life on a spiritual path, blogging often struck me as a purely ego driven behavior, a platform for the little self to yabber on and on to an imaginary audience in the hopes of feeling significant and special.  This is what I didn’t want to do.  The world is filled with an overabundance of mindless static fighting for our attention and I didn’t want to contribute to that onslaught.  If I was going to say something it had better be meaningful and serve the greater good.   It would have to make the world a better place in the process.

So after some reflection I accepted the challenge I had given myself and decided to share some of my thoughts and musings on the things that are important to me.  Things like meditation, martial arts, yoga, higher consciousness, changing the world, and exploring this whole adventure of what it means to be human will be my initial focus, but I may explore other topics depending on what inspires me at the time.  I can’t promise to completely avoid the “hot topics” of politics and religion, but if I do go there, I’ll do my best not to flame out or go all thermal from my imaginary soapbox.  Regardless, I’ll strive to make my posts well thought out and worth your time.  I work hard to be a positive and uplifting person so I’m going to avoid griping and airing mindless grievances, because we all have enough of that in our lives and I doubt you would want to come back here just to watch Mt. Vesuvius blow its top….AGAIN. So I’ll try to follow the wise words of a great teacher when he said,

Before you speak, think – is it necessary?  Is it true?  Is it kind?  Will it hurt anyone?  Will it improve on the silence?”

-Sri Sathya Sai Baba

I’ll also do my best to not pull a grammar or syntax foul.  I promise to proofread before I post and will err on the side of brevity when I can (some topics may need some thorough exploration, though).  But with that said, know that years of journal writing in college spawned a somewhat oddball and creative writing style, so don’t be surprised if what I write sounds like I just bumped my head…

Anyway, I hope you come back to check my semi-regular contemplations and I hope they help to make your world a little bit better and perhaps even a little inspired.  I welcome your comments on my posts knowing that it is only through considering other positions are we able to grow and evolve, which in my opinion, is what this whole ride is about.

Peace out & Namaste,
