At first glance what do you see?
When we look at things from a distance they may appear very different from reality. Usually, within seconds, we decide how we feel about something or someone. We place immediate ideas or judgements on people, animals, plants, clothing, and even food. Our perception tends to be influenced by our life and lessons to date. We learn from our teachers, parents, hardships or other influences up until this very moment. But... what if could change the way we see things? Removing the judgement. If we could look at something for what it truly is without labeling it good, bad, ugly or “this so amazing that I need to have it right now”! ... Even though we have been programmed to think in a certain way doesn’t mean we need to become robots. We can watch and observe things as they are. Label-less and free of judgment. Just awareness. As it is.
It’s not the easiest thing to do but I will do my best to continue to sit in this space. .

WE'RE ALL TO BLAME FOR THE WOUNDED WORLD!!!📉
Had an incredible time meeting @asitisofficial today! They did a small acoustic set which was amazing, Wounded World and Stigma were so so good.
They were so lovely, I thanked them for writing about serious topics like mental health, told them I've been following them for 3-4 years and how I'll be seeing them live again in November eep!
As I hugged @pattyxwalters he said see you soon and wow that got me emotional as that was so lovely, I'm smiling so much in the picture 😭❤️
They were all so nice, give great hugs and let me gush about things to them. Brilliant day! ❤️
“The world didn’t teach me that. I had to learn for myself that I need to be vulnerable and honest and open with the people in my life.” | All the way from across the pond, Brighton’s @asitisofficial creates music that tackles subjects like mental health, toxic masculinity, and society’s expectations. John caught up with Patty & Ben at @vanswarpedtour to chat about their latest album The Great Depression and their weirdest fan encounter.
