I've noticed a difference in the way I write stories and the way I tell stories...

  • me (writing):And so she resolved to journey to the ruins of the north, for it was there, in the heart of the castle that the enchanted stone resided.
  • me (aloud):And then she's like, "I'm gonna go north to where there's all those broken buildings and shit" cause there's, like, a castle there in the castle there's this weird magic crystal or something.

  • AnonymousI read that you're in your 30s (correct me if I'm wrong)... What advice can you give to a young adult who has no concrete career plans after college and is overwhelmed by modern living constantly? Is any form of escape healthy?

    That’s right, I’m 35.

    This over whelming feeling comes from feeling like there is this world full of things and I have to conquer them, this feeling like there is this world and I’m a separate thing from it.

    Getting in touch with your connectedness to things involves letting things be as they are. This doesn’t mean that you can’t work to change them, but just simply let things be as there are in this moment. Find a comfortable place to sit and find some small item in the room and just let that item be. Remove your label from it, don’t call it anything and just simply let that small thing be. Let it be there, give it space to be. Sense the space that it inhabits in the room. Just breathe and just let that item simply be as it is, without wanting to change it. If you can truly let this item be you can begin to sense lightness around it, you’ll sense it’s presence and your own presence as well. If you practice this with small things and become good at it you can move on to bigger things, just let all the situations you find yourself in in life be as they are, let all the people in your life, annoying as they may be, be as they are.

    You get overwhelmed by life because you want it to be different than it is. This is impossible to do, you can change the future, but right now right this instant things are as they are, you can’t go back and change them. The mind will try to fight the way things are just observe those thoughts, just observe the feelings that those thoughts create, those overwhelmed feelings that come up. The feeling like you are trying to breathe underwater feelings that comes be when you fight with what is, just feel those feelings. Just be, sense your aliveness and your own presence, your connectedness to all things and just breathe. Try to see that these thoughts and feelings come from your mind not wanting the present to be like it is, but it can be another way right now. Realizing this is how to get over those overwhelming feelings and let life flow like it should. Let life be and it will work for you, if you can let life be as it is now it will be easier on you in the future. If you fight life it will fight you back, so just let it be as it is now.

    I hope this is of some help.
