Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People
I want to share some thoughts and impressions of a record, which i have in heavy rotation these days:
Broken social scene is an art-rock collective hailing from Toronto, Canada. The album was originally released in 2002. This was during a 4-5 year period where the majority of the most interesting music, all was released by canadian bands such as; Arcade Fire, New Pornographers, Wolf Parade, Godspeed You Black Emperor etc. They all released stellar albums at that time. Remembering buying records solely based on them being tagged as indie and from Canada during some time.
Even though all the before mentioned bands realeased some really stellar works, it only took one listen to You Forgot it in People to realize that it was something unlike anything else completely. This might be a bold statement but this is simply in the top 5 of the greatest pop records from the 00’s; it really is a total embarrassment of musical riches. Regards to some obvious influences (Jeff Buckley, My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth and New Order, to name a few), but the record still ends up sounding original. Symphonic noise-pop might be the best description for the music (for lack of better tags/terms). One of the most astonishing “standouts” about this album, is the way that it manages to be extremely immediate (songs like “KC Accidental” and “Stars and Sons” are basically sonic blasts with layer upon layer of distorted guitar), yet it reveals numerous subtleties upon repeated listens. The gorgeous production brings a great deal of detail to the front, like the gentle banjo floating under the hypnotic vocals in “Anthems For A Seventeen Year-Old Girl,” or the silvery guitar fills during the operatic ending of “Cause = Time.” The euphoric first side evokes the first rays of sunshine flooding your bedroom in the morning, while the languid second side is perfect to drift off to at late night hours.
To quote Ryan Schreiber from Pitchfork “And i hate to end this saying, you just have to hear it for yourself. But oh my god, you do. You just really, really do.” #youforgotitinpeople#brokensocialscene#introspective#stellaralbum
It's actually a challenge to see through a Narcissist, since we have such a Narcisstic culture. The better response is how much Narcissism can you handle in one person? 20, 30, 40% because we have all been afflicted. My thing is just because you're the most pathetic acting OR emotionally unavailable definitely doesn't give you the right to burden others. If you need professional help... Please get it. You may not be Donald Trump Narcissist doesn't mean to just brush it to the side. Let's bring more balance to the collective with a little something I like to call Accountability 💖🙌
“I’ve been running. Running so hard and so long I forgot why I started running. My eyes hold a thousand yard stare and you can tell by my actions I don’t particularly care. All my memories are secrets, safe from others. Packaged up and stored away in high mountain peaks. I’ll keep running, passing shadows by, all the ephemeral things like people, places, things. I’ll keep running till I reach the end of some snow-swept road, surrounded by pines - I’ll die there, shine bright for no one save the silent trees to see - then disappear up into the stars I came from.”

An unfolding process of putting pieces together .. of sorting them, connecting, trying out and looking for the ones that fit .. of moving through all kinds of emotions - frustration, laughter, boredom, doubt, euphoria, hope, even paranoia could kick in .. How similar a puzzle is to life and the mind ..
You gotta sort the thoughts for your life - same as the pieces, connect, try, decide and consciously choose the thoughts according to the life you want to experience .. A life filled with love wherever you go..
Cultivate awareness around your thoughts, choose thoughts and not be controlled by them or fight with them .. Acknowledge that you have thoughts but you are not your thoughts ..
Your choice to choose your thoughts, free will .. no denial or pushing away .. be with them .. understand them, realise where they are coming from AND let them go ..
an ongoing practice and process wherever you go whatever you do .. choose love .. choose connectedness .. choose openness .. observing realising and choosing your thoughts is the process .. a process that is Not ending as Long as you are resisting, denying or even fighting with thoughts .. sometimes there are pieces missing, like thoughts drifting off .. and other times there is the exact same thought reappearing a 2nd or even multiple times .. despite all and everything that is going on .. let go and let the unknown surprise and welcome you with open arms .. ✨ ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #puzzle#thoughts#choose#collectiveenergy#bepresent#travelonearth#anotheryou#answers#tools#truth#aho#AsatomaSatGamaya#Thislifeissointeresting .. ✨🙏🏼 #aswithinsowithout#introspective#humanexperience#dreamwithinadream#playwithwords#writeitalldown#connectwords#words#writer#mind#exploreall#alive#divedeep#letgo
Babe— can we be real with each other for a quick sec? Taking advice is HARD. I mean seriously, just about any person who hears what you’re going through has something that you “SHOULD” believe/think/feel instead. We wouldn’t be coming to you if we didn’t know there was something wrong. Am I right or am I right? We’ve all heard the spiel, you are perfect the way you are, you don’t need to be like anyone else, God’s in control, you shouldn’t worry about money, blah blah blah. WE GET IT. But, the real question is... how do we put that advice into action? ⬅️⬅️ THAT’S the question I’ve switched to asking my friends lately; I’ve stopped asking for advice and starting asking,
“What are some practical ways I can live out the advice I’ve already been given?”
I’m going to be honest and say that I didn’t get nearly as much of a response with that question and I think I know why: we all know what we SHOULD believe/think/feel/etc., but we don’t know HOW we are supposed to get to it. I think it’s time to press into that; it’s time to stop giving “SHOULD” advice and start giving “HOW” advice. Here’s the question I’m pressing into this week: HOW can I change the way I see myself + WHAT can I do so that I’m no longer so self-conscious in the presence of girls who have hurt me?
What’s one piece of advice you’ve been given that you aren’t quite sure how to begin to take? Let me know in the comments! 🖋 #asktherightquestions#friendlyadvice#adviceoftheday#christianblog#christianbloggers#selflovequotes#introspective
“Wrap Ones Head Around It”
See the profile of the young man immersed in an #introspective moment while seeing what division, and fear looks like all around him.
How can one wrap their head around defending #truth and #justice ?
How can one remain clear minded upholding their #beliefs and #values when society layouts a land mine of mixed messages? .
This glass print explores the phrase “To wrap one’s head around it “ which is said when one needs to take time to comprehend something that is challenging or confusing. .
Those that can’t wrap ones head around it fall into the landmine of misunderstandings , misguidedness and delusions.
The turban is the symbol for the Gordian knot. You don’t have to to cut the Gordian knot to come up with solutions that let lead you to think outside the box.
The legend of the Gordian knot is associated with Alexander the Great. Whoever unraveled the knot, according to legend, would rule the world.
The term cutting the Gordian knot is usually told as a justification of a bravura style of leadership. There is another pathway to #empowerment and strength no longer defined by bravado of unraveling the knot but rather to demonstrate inclusivity. .
Placing the Gordian knot on ones head metaphorically empowers one to find your own voice because only then will know how to wrap your head around it.
Intuitive Wellness Tip #4 🌻
Follow the cycles of the seasons ☀️🍁❄️🌷
Our ancestors relied on the cycles and patterns of each season to guide them in their lives. They planted seeds each spring and with each autumn celebrated harvest and abundance. 🌽
They ate what was available seasonally, lived and worked by the sun🌞
The further our society has gone down the path of separating ourselves from nature, the more disconnected we feel. Technology has afforded us many opportunities, but it has also taken a toll on our health and well-being.😣
Being connected and plugged in all the time with unlimited access to every kind of food imaginable has allowed us to lose sight of how our body’s needs change with each season.
Getting back in tune with seasonal living can shift how we think and feel. We can better adjust our lifestyle to keep us vibrantly healthy all year round ✨
🌻Does your lifestyle change throughout each season?
🌻How might you adjust your schedule or routines to align more with the cycles of nature?
🌻Could you incorporate more seasonally available foods into your routine?
🌻What unhealthy patterns seem to repeat during particular seasons, and how might you approach and plan for that season in a fresh way?
Nature is truly the best medicine🌳🌸🍂🌿🌻

Like flickering oil lamps in the four corners of darkness, the world only looks for those who look for themselves. Each flame waves proudly as it burns holes in the abyss, I miss that familiar kiss of the shapeless, the formless, the amorphous. That which I look for outside of me whispers softly from within. 😌✨ Full video on @poetical_word's YouTube channel ↩️ 🎥: @sufi_sage
This was a quote I heard today at the funeral of a man who dedicated his entire life to teaching and leading others. Raised by a single dad in Mexico who only had an elementary school education, Victor Reyna defied all odds and became a leader of his community and of his family, inspiring thousands over the 36 years he spent teaching others. Throughout all adversities in his life, including coming back from the brink of death on several occasions, Victor lived his life with joy, mental toughness, and a never ending smile. His personal example of overcoming setbacks and a challenging upbringing inspires me to be a better, stronger leader.
I wonder how many of us think about what our eulogy one day will be? When my days come to an end, I want others to say that I made a difference in their lives and that I was an inspiration to them. Too many people are self-absorbed in their own pity party, but this world needs more leaders who show through their own example how to #maxout their every minute on this earth! . .
I try to live my life each day filled with gratitude for what I have and who I’m becoming. Each day I ask myself, Did I make a difference today? Did I help someone? Am I better in an area of my life today compared to how I was yesterday?
