You Are A GD Hero. (You Just Haven’t Realized It Yet.)

This year, in the year of 2023 A.D…

I call BS on every zombie parading as a human out there, continuing to blather on with lies and drivel, filling the airwaves and what few open spaces we have left in our brains with detritus and gimcrack. These walking dead suck up the very air we breathe and drain our very will to live, to love and dream. Make no mistake, there are heroes that walk among us — heroes that defy to live. These are the humans that #ClaimAgency in any given instant, paving their own path — informed by their deepest intention and unyielding motivation to live and love.

People say the great writers and thinkers of our time are gone. I call BS on this. This is zombie talk. The great minds are still among us. The brightest minds often shout into the din of the collective for the most part, almost unheard, but they are felt and understood in a way that has never been discernible or describable until now. They are there. We — the great audience of listeners and watchers and FEELERS — know they exist. The great writers and musicians and artists of our shared past — of our shared ‘human culture’ — have only opened the door for the rest of us to walk through, creating infinite spaces for greater connection and understanding.

It’s only the idea of the elevated heroic ‘individual’ that may have died. It deserves mourning. There may be some truth in this. There is MUCH to be mourned of our former selves. Truth is, we are all heroes these days. We are ALL great minds. We should ALL be placing ourselves on a GD pedestal to worship and admire.

We have arrived at a point in our global / shared culture that there is no ‘good’ or bad’ any thing. Everything just is what it is. Circumstance and context trump any and all critique any person or group of people could offer. Yes, there is some horrific sh*t out there — too much. If we actually acted on our collective thinking, we should have been be done by now, wouldn’t you think? But we’re still in shock over the new reality we’ve been dealt in the last decade or so. It’s Ok. It will sink in, and then when we’re good and ready, we’ll actually act on it. It might feel weird or foreign, but at the very base of our being — we’ll live with the change and BEGIN to LIVE again.

If you took a vote, of everyone alive — able to read and form an opinion about some of the crazy ass ‘santioned’ sh*t that continues to happen out there — I’m quite certain MOST would vote to #JustStop. There’s enough of everything for everyone. There always has been. And guess what? If there isn’t — for some reason — we still have the scientific advancements, knowledge and wisdom to know how to remedy the problem. There is no legitimate reason to commit acts of violence or terrorism toward one another. There’s no need. Our planet is trying to help us understand this by turning the conversation to HER life, instead of ours.

Look at the demons of our past. There aren’t many who have no excuse for their failings. The truth behind our failures is found in nearly every meaningful exchange/argument/decision of our day. Our leaders and cultural figureheads are no longer responsible for our failings. Our faults continue to lie within.

Those who do see, hear and feel the event horizon of the end of human kind — and do nothing to claim agency in the face of inane nonsense, chaos and doubt — are doomed to live and die a faceless, loveless and empty existence. Life and love exist in plain sight and are always ripe for the taking. We ARE culture — our humanity is comprised of ALL cultures. To ignore or deny its celebration is another tick on the tally board for the kind of humans running around thinking there’s ‘something better’ on the other side of this earthly existence. Poppycock! This is it. This walking life of a sh*t show is all we get. So yes, if you have something to say or do — all you creatives out there — better act now. #FindAgency Life is but a blink of an eye. Don’t waste your time in spaces of fear, doubt or complacency — it’s not what we were born to do. It’s not easy, but sometimes— it’s the MOST we can do. #DoWhatYouCan

We were born to shine — to live — to love, in ways no one has ever done or even imagined doing — ever. Do yourself and everyone else a favor in 2023; live and love radically. We’ll all be better for it.
