Hey look at him and where he is these days. When life is hard you have to change.
"If you will not admit that there is something you must learn, you cannot be taught. Life is a constant movement, change and growth. There is no way to halt this process without ending it." - R.L. Wing
"The Primary clue to a condition of imbalance is a feeling of insecurity. Let's get this straight, the inner imbalance is not caused by situations in the world, the inner imbalance creates situations in the outer world. This is the energetic view of life-change the inner experience of energy and the outer world will follow. Fear is meant to function as an alarm, not as a state of consciousness." -David Pond
"Thought is the cause. Experiences you meet in life are the effect. Eliminate any possible tendency to complain about conditions as they have been or as they are because it rests with you to change them and make them what you would like them to be. Direct your effort to a realization of the mental resources always at your command."
- Charles Hannel
As a child, I lived in a wonderful world where Salvador Dali and the Dali Lama were the same person.
It was equally as disappointing to realize Carl Jung and Carl Sagan were two different people.
My memory begins as I was still half way submerged in the grimy water of a New York City harbor. My hands were tightly gripped on a weathered rotting ladder and as I pulled myself up, my feet found the bottom rungs.
Once I completed my ascent, I caught my breath on the warming asphalt. Only a few meters away was a busy urban street that led into Manhattan.
It was interesting that I knew this, given that I could not remember what I had been doing in the water. To make matters worse, I was wearing only a speedo. Fortunately, I had also been wearing a diving mask, which I promptly removed.
Some bystanders took notice of me as I began walking towards the nearby street. Not far from my accession point, I rather clumsily stumbled across my car. (I say clumsily, because I had no knowledge that it would be waiting for me.)
Before I climbed in, I took a look across the bay, trying hard to imagine what led to this situation and what could possibly be normal about it.
Despite my inability to remember any details about who I was and how I had arrived here, I was easily able to navigate my car through seemingly unfamiliar streets to police headquarters.
After I parked, which I have no memory of - so it is just as likely I abandon the vehicle anywhere convenient, I entered the building still quite wet and still wearing only speedos. The flippers on my feet made strange penguin-esqe sounds as they lapped against the marble floor. I had discarded the accompanying diving mask on the passenger seat of the car, having no logical reason to take it with me inside my place of work.
That’s right, I am a detective with the NYPD. I can’t tell you how I know this, but the casual nods I receive from people and the fact that no one has attempted to stop me, confirm this.
I overhear a confrontation of some kind but feel that – in my current state, it is best not to get involved, so I proceed to the nearby elevator. As the door opens, I am certain which floor is my destination.
“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”
-Jessie B. Rittenhouse
