risky behavior



I don't know about you, but it's hard for me to think about the makers of the TV show Lost as risk takers. Not because their show wasn't new and different and brave, but because by the time I heard of it, it was already so successful. It's hard to remember that there was ever a point where the people behind thriving creative entities were struggling and scared, just like those of us who are in the pre-pre-pre success phase of the game are.

Reading this interview with Carlton Cuse, one of Lost's executive producer's, reminded me of that point. And it also left me with this great quote to share with y'all:

"...to succeed as an artist or in any creative endeavor you must shed your fear...if you are not prepared to fail you will not create anything of lasting artistic value." Best Blogger Tips

That quote is awesome and so true. I need to staple it to my forehead.

Don't do that. Your forehead is too beautiful for that. But do keep it nearby. :)

You have good instincts, and an open mind. Both, like a good horse, will take you far. Good luck finalizing and publishing your novel.

p.s. don't be in a hurry; your first novel will announce you to the world and finance all your other endeavors. Make it the novel you want to read!

Just as the gods used WWII to justify an influx of new technologies, including the voice in your head, so will they use the impending pestilence which kills over half the world's population to justify historical medical advances, including the "cure of aging", initiating the "1000 years with Jesus on Earth", despite biotechnology already accomplishing these goals.
We've seen this tactic used recently with AIDS, targetted at homosexuals and blacks in Africa with the biotechnology product. The gods control everything on Earth, and althugh sold AIDS to your enemies as revenge, their real purpose was to enlighten you regarding sex:::Back-handed help. It was very effective with homosexuals in the USA, but sex is among the most powerful temptations with Africans. Remeber it is always the gods:::Slavery, AIDS, drive-bys, crack babies, pimps prostituting 10 year-old girls. And, contrary to your belief the victim doesn't go anywhere, they are reincarnated back to Earth like everyone else when we die.
Then, as promised, The End will come with fire::::Global tectonic subduction.

There was a very real perception that bi-racial was much worse for the white than it was for the person of color. The liberal culture, which was designed and promoted with the god's tools to achieve their Apocalyptic goals, screamed racism when there was a very reasonable explanation for this reality::::
In this white punishment known as the United States the person of color has already adopted the disfavors/temptations intended for another race. But by associating/mating with a person of color the white is newly adopting the disfavors of another culture.
And this is the reason why people of color are not welcome in the United States. The gods control everything:::The perception they want to create, the thoughts they want you to have.
People of color can't recover from absorbing the temptations from two cultures. And why they become more and more like so many blacks in America:::Veterans at absorbing the temptations of two cultures.
To further illustrate this is why California's educational system/funding was ranked #1 when California was white:::Education being the basis of the affluent economic system. Now even public higher education has become unaffordable.

Don't forget the lessons the 'ole white preacher taught:::Dancing is a sin, spare the rod spoil the child.
The gods used the liberal tool to ridicule away so many taboos, paving the way for the decay of society and ultimately the End Times::::::
Black behavior was controlled by the KKK. Men's behavior was controlled by marriage for thousands of years.
When married by 15 men never gained the taste of promiscuity. Once the gods used the budding liberalism tool the men set the tone for the deteriorating enviornment centered around their gross disfavor.
Women's relinquishing control of pre-arranged marriage will be what costs mankind everything in The End. It's all their fault. Men are pigs, essentially just primally responsive disfavored beings who if given the freedom will abuse based on the impulses the god's push them into. Whereas under pre-arranged marriage this behavior was contained now the promiscuous fraternity house epitomizes the pinnicle of what a "real man" should be like. And sadly the women fall into line.

The gods behave monsterously in the course of managing Planet Earth but they demand people be good if you are to have a chance to ascend in a future life.
Not only is doing the right things important (praying, attoning for your sins, thinking the right way:::accepting humility, modesty, vulnerability), so is avoiding the wrong things important as well:::"Go and sin no more".
You NEED active parents who share wisdom to have a real chance to ascend into heaven in a future life, and you MUST be a good parent as well to have that opportunity. Once your children have been raised something changes, something has been decided about you. This is exactly that.

The last quote really touched me! After graduation, in the mad scramble for employment, many of us forget the true reason we stepped into the arts - not to mint money, but to inspire!

Thank You!
