Words of Wisdom from Ken Knox

  • Ken Knox

    I believe happiness is an unrealistic goal, as it is fleeting and not sustainable. No feeling is. Life won’t always feel good. Sometimes we will be sad or feel down. That is simply a fact of being human. As my friend Kevin J. Thornton says,?”Happiness is for house cats.” I believe a far more realistic–not to mention attainable–goal is FULFILLMENT. You may not be happy, but you can be fulfilled. To me, that’s a far more realized life anyway. Sometimes we won’t know happiness until we’ve truly allowed ourselves to experience our sadness.
  • Larry Geller?I was complimenting your writing abilities you stinking whore 🙂

    You also get to meet people where they are. Those who are insightful and evolved can also be so to a fault, meaning it’s easy to judge and dismiss others who may not have the same insight. It takes humility and compassion to allow others to?stumble in life even as we hold them to our standards. No one is perfect, and we will all mess up and sell out to our history at some point. Again, part of being human. I often have to remind myself that just because I have certain insights into life, I’m no better than a homeless slacker who keeps letting his past failures dictate his behavior. I’ve done that too. I am still learning and growing, and I’m just as imperfect as anyone else. 😉
  • Larry Geller?Ditto…but you still are a stinking whore. Get back to Slammers 🙂
  • Ken Knox?No, I don’t take money, so that makes me a slut. Not a whore. And it Slammer, not Slammers, you backwoods hillbilly. 😉
  • Larry Geller?Sadly I see people ruin themselves even with something like tobacco. I did it for years.
  • Larry Geller?Guilty: I am from Missouri after all.

    Shit, I’ve done buttloads of drugs and drank myself into a stupor more than a few times. A lot of us have. So we get to empathize with those who still do and call them forth into living a more balanced and healthy life, but you can only do?that by truly CARING about them. People won’t listen to you if they think you are criticizing or judging them. They’ll only do it more to spite you. Just so they can feel righteous in THEIR way. So you gotta roll up your sleeves and be willing to go deep with people and find out what kind of life they really want for themselves, then support them in creating it. Sadly, too many people say, “I don’t have the time for that” or “It’s not my problem.” Which only continues perpetuating the cycle. Like Dr. Seuss said, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” 😉

It Never Rains In Southern California

Wilshire at Western

Wilshire at Western

Oh yes it does in the winter time quite often actually. ?Sometimes it even starts in November as illustrated in the following photo. ?And my thoughts on drivers that freak out in Los Angeles when it does rain. ?I have lived in Chicago, Portland, and LA now for 10 years. I speak from years of experience, knowledge, truth. People here in Los Angeles are clueless even without rain. Traffic is horrific always, and if you add rain to the equation, total disaster. However, as Sister Buffy would say “Los Angeles people do not focus outside the four walls of their vehicles because then it is not about driver/me”. Everyone here has a mild to severe case of NPD! ?There actually is a newer mental disorder that I believe is listed now in DSM V which is called “Unspecific Hollywood Generalized Personality Disorder”. ?I find that fact alone Hilarious! ?I think you have to live in Los Angeles for several years and get exposure to these people often to comprehend the sociology of it all here locally. ?I often try to explain it to people that do not live here and never do they quite get it. ?That is all for now.

 

Nameste!
