Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
The Biggest Secret?Stop spending.
Every millionaire we spoke to has one thing in common: Not a single one spends needlessly. Real estate investor Dave Lindahl drives a Ford Explorer and says his middle-class neighbors would be shocked to learn how much he’s worth. Fitness mogul Rick Sikorski can’t fathom why anyone would buy bottled water. Steve Maxwell, the finance teacher, looked at a $1.5 million home but decided to buy one for half the price because “a house with double the cost wouldn’t give me double the enjoyment.”
“An artist has an obligation to be on route, to be going somewhere, there’s a journey involved here and you don’t know where it is and that’s the fun.”
“Every person you look at you can see the universe in their eyes if you’re really looking”
- George Carlin
Taking a minute to reflect back on the genius of George Carlin with this classic interview by a young Jon Stewart.
Hey and Hey, here’s a little something to ponder upon, recently received these mixes from my cuz, hope you like them. First one hit me, in the right way, simply JAHmazing, well I’m gonna leave you with the lyrics for the first song.
The point needs no dimension, my soul trapped in a physical prison, the names are part of a circle by definition, peep the wisdom, walk the line that is man-made the mind wanders, measuring thought with a land gauge, seeds planted with the rhyme, find ways to grow nimble off the pie, study the golden ratio, reflecting when the darkness starts to draw near, meditating, standing in the shadow of the a large sphere, time travelin’, wise the ways of the ancients, slowly heightening my conscious through vibration, completeness, integrity, unity, and entity so real his image sacred, nickname is energy, condition the pitiful, nasty with the lyrical, reach hands quick enough grasp the metaphysical, spits words resonate, infinite like number 8, on the journey to the center from which all originates, fraction to integer, a permanent visiter, you’ll need a hubble mandala telescope to peep the perimeter, existence linear, unseen optically, my spirits reads between the lines of sacred geometry, chakra turnin steadily, the feeling is great, close my eyes, hum softly, spinnin in place, 360, perverted monk like the Damaja, my mind is platonic, my heart a giant mandala, form focus, generate don’t need to imitate, I ORIGINAL, capital of my mental state, rip daily the calm after the storm, break the world down by five through the mention of thorns, my mind is basic, train of thought sharper than razors, staring deep into the irises of my creator, a giant cycle you’ll know when the war is won, pondering our ways as we slowly fly around the sun, some bites rhymes but can’t chew human nature, its food for thought like poems for inner rice paper, you might not understand my style, eclectic, open up my third so i can gather the collective, the music speaks, my words are instrumental, to get my point across a round house to the temple, my ways are strange but look that with great respect, born named Pawel also known as the Architect
Here’s a little something towards the previous post in response to getting mad, a little remix from my the architect himself. Let not the picture above set an example of what you have to do but let it burn the coals in your internal furnace to push you to follow your reason to life.
A technology that always seemed inevitable has finally arrived: bringing the Internet to your television. Today the world was introduced to Google TV, an idea that’s been on the minds of techies since before the days of YouTube. I’m not so focused on the fact Google is doing this, but instead that the idea is finally being put into action. The world of cable television is long overdue for a shakeup, it will surely be interesting to watch as this technology undoubtedly creeps into all of our lives in the next few years and is likely to completely change the way we watch television. From targeted advertisements to movies, surfing the web and more. I’m convinced within the next 5 or so years, commercials will really be talking to us. If our television was hooked up to the internet we would all have our own username. Ads would be targeted to us and would likely change depending on the time of day. There is no reason why an 8:00am commercial couldn’t say “Hey Bill, how about a coffee on the way to work! Exit 18 off Route 1.” once the internet is connected to your TV. We already tell the internet where we are, what we do, where we work, where we’re going, who we know and what we like. I predict that soon this information will be working for us.
We can’t help but acknowledge how we’re more connected every day. The mobile web, the mobile Internet, people all across the globe have minicomputers in their pocket. Video cameras, a messaging device, maps and a navigation system. Pretty soon we’ll all be video-chatting on our phones while we walk into the park. Pretty sure this is the future. Though I’m still keeping an eye out for jet packs.

Journalist Carl Honore believes the Western world’s emphasis on speed erodes health, productivity and quality of life. But there’s a backlash brewing, as everyday people start putting the brakes on their all-too-modern lives.
When the Apple iPad was released it seemed everyone had something to say about it. People were quick to criticize this new technology, calling it a “big iPhone/iPod that doesn’t make calls” and variety of other things. Personally, I was enthralled by the magic this piece of machinery has to offer. The concept of holding a computer in your hands and efficiently using it at the same time is a technology we as a society are yet to master, for now. Cell phones are a great tool, but the screen is simply too small to be completely productive. Laptops and netbooks are too bulky despite how small they’re made these days, they still have two main parts and need to fold open. The idea of having a flat, almost paper-thin computer screen will undoubtedly change the way we interact with digital media forever. The internet and a computer screen change from “tools we go use” to “tools we carry around with us.” Instead of bringing you to my office to show you my website, I can hand it you in the park.
In my experiences selling a product or business the old fashioned way, face-to-face, I realized that simply handing your product to a potential consumer is the most powerful selling tool one can have at their advantage. When it comes to selling things, “show me what you’ve got” is how the operation begins. Consider this: as a web designer, the greatest disadvantage of my selling my services is that I can’t walk up to you and hand you a website I’ve designed; until now.
In summation; I’m not endorsing the iPad specifically but instead the technology and functionality it provides people. I urge you to watch as this technology changes how we look and interact with internet and ultimately the world, one step at a time.
To support my claim, here is one of seemingly infinite applications of this technology. Ever brought a laptop on a plane and not been able to open it all the way? Not anymore. Pay attention people!
At its core, Apple’s iPad is an entertainment device — one that certainly has the power to make air travel much more enjoyable. Enter Bluebox Avionics, which is introducing a customized iPad for airlines dubbed bluebox Ai, “the world’s first iPad inflight entertainment system.”
Bluebox Ai units have reportedly already been approved to offer inflight entertainment content and will give passengers the full iPad experience including access to iPad games and apps, iBooks, consumer magazines offered through Zinio and airline-specific custom applications.
