Erik Pevernagie
“If we dare to dream, we must dare to wake up. When we come to rub our eyes wide open and face up to realness, we can clear our vision and curb a whirlwind of bewilderment that might break our mind apart, once fantasy wrangles with reality and our awareness denies the true colors of facts. ("Behind the frosted glass”)”
Erik Pevernagie

Keep jumping around them like monkeys.
The clones,
Commercialized zombies,
And the TV junkies.
Keep throwing berries,
And nuts at them.
Until they wake up
To see what's up
And figure out why
We're laughing at 'em.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Peter David
“I woke up dead.
Not only dead...but in hell.
I had always been somewhat sketchy on what the afterlife - were there actually such a thing - would be like for a person such as I. From all accounts and all my imaginings, I figured it would be one of two things. Either I would be surrounded by great, burning masses that were endlessly immolating souls in torment... or else I would find myself trapped within my own mind as a helpless bystander, condemned to watching me live out my life over and over again and powerless to do anything to change any of it. When idle speculation prompted me to dwell on these two options, I would find myself drawn invariably to the former, since the later was just too hideous to contemplate.
I was almost afraid to open my eyes, because once I did, I would know one way or the other. Perhaps I could have just lain there forever. Perhaps I was supposed to. Perhaps that was my true condemnation: to simply reside in hell with my eyes closed afraid of opening them lest matters deteriorate even further than they already had. This, in turn, made me dwell on the fact that every time I had believed things couldn’t get worse, they promptly had done so with almost gleeful enthusiasm .”
Peter David, The Woad to Wuin

“a vast majority of us vandwellers are white. The reasons range from obvious to duh, but then there’s this.” Linked below the post was an article about the experience of “traveling while black.” That made me think: America makes it hard enough for people to live nomadically, regardless of race. Stealth camping in residential areas, in particular, is way outside the mainstream. Often it involves breaking local ordinances against sleeping in cars. Avoiding trouble—hassles with cops and suspicious passersby—can be challenging, even with the Get Out of Jail Free card of white privilege. And in an era when unarmed African Americans are getting shot by police during traffic stops, living in a vehicle seems like an especially dangerous gambit for anyone who might become a victim of racial profiling. All that made me think about the instances when I could have gotten in trouble and didn’t. One time I got pulled over at night while reporting in North Dakota. The cops asked where I was from and recommended some local tourist attractions before letting me off with a warning. In general, people didn’t give me grief when I was driving Halen. I wish I could chalk that up to good karma or some kind of cosmic benevolence, but the fact remains: I am white. Surely privilege played a role.”
Jessica Bruder, Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century

“Reality is an algorithm of all possibilities, our responsibility is to choose the most rational emotional response to those possibilities based on previous experiences and that becomes our reality. Reality is not a simulation, it’s a super intelligent system of fully immersive chemically stimulated experiences. Reality is the only thing that’s real.”
Kayambila Mpulamasaka

Ron Baratono
“We can’t even think each day we’re going to wake up and feel great. Some days we might be troubled by a situation, some days we might wake up, and feel fantastic. Some days we might not want to get out of bed at all. It’s when we understand this is the way life is, not just for you but for everyone. If we have faith in God to pull us up when we’re down it’s a whole lot easier than if we didn’t.”
Ron Baratono

“That breakup was a tipping point for me and a big wake-up call to take control of my own life.”
Chris Noble, Women Who Dare

“Darling listen - I want you to wake up now...
Oh, no.. you took me otherwise. I am not asking you to wake up early today & do the same thing you did yesterday, I want you to wake up in life...

To wake up in life means to become more of yourself, to express yourself, to show the world how you're unique & the best, everyday.

To wake up in life means shifting your mindset from “Things happen to me” to “I make things happen”… It also means to remain happy with what you have while working hard for what you want.

To wake up in life means putting a full stop to “watering the WEEDS” & begin “watering the SEEDS”… It also means to stop over-dreaming & under-acting.

To wake up in life means shifting your mindset from “what is missing” to “what you’re grateful for”… & giving your best shot to everything & achieving every single thing you possibly CAN!

Good luck & Tons of Good Wishes!”
Rajesh Goyal

“The events in our world are a wake-up call. And if the gravity of these events are such that they don’t wake us up, we were probably never asleep in the first place. What we were was in denial.”
