Expect lots of new VR content coming to my YouTube Channel (see the VR Playlist). This is meant to be viewed on a VR Headset such as the Oculus. 

To start with, I did a mini concert in the snow. I hope you feel like you're there with me.

I'll die smiling

Trying

Lyrics to "I'll Die Smiling" by Abscondo

Abscondo - I'll Die Smiling

Out of place
Some street in London's left me out of place
Looked right at you, did you see my face?
Seems all of London's going separate ways
I'll go mine

To New York
No sky above me as I walk its floor
Bright lights attack me but I just ignore
Seems like New York's becoming such a bore
A waste of time

But time is still the question
What are you gonna do?
From infinite directions
You've got to choose a few

So I've searched some sad, sad cities
I've seen some semblance of the truth
I've walked so many journeys
That I've worn these scuffed-up shoes

So I'll die smiling
And I'll die trying

Deep in love
A heart that's beating should be deep in love
She looks right at me as we float above
Seems so sudden we face questions of
These two lives

Like before
A heart that's beating looks for something more
We can't stop walking through that open door
So, yes, you've got me but like I said before
This is mine

So time is still the question
What are you gonna do?
From infinite directions
You've got to choose a few

I've sought some sense of newness
And I've heard never-ending calls of youth
Yeah I've known what it means to do this
because I've shattered each excuse

And I'll die smiling
Because I'll die trying

Humans have just one superpower—the power to create.

“If we closely observe the activities of nature, we will find that there is only one process going on. And that process is one of continuous creation, of procreation, of creating new and different self-forms.” -Osho

We are life, and of course the same is true of us. We were given these minds and bodies for one purpose: the purpose of creating.

Let’s start with the sex drive. The need for sex is nothing other than the most basic urge to create. To resist sexual desire is to resist life. Why not accept and embrace it fully? How can we rise to the higher forms of creation if we cannot even embrace the most basic?

Moving beyond this most basic power, we have a superpower—creative powers far exceeding any known life form. We have hands to make things, minds to imagine what does not yet exist, and language powerful enough to make concepts felt and understood. We can write, speak, make music, develop technology, paint, draw, invent systems, entertain, inform…we are perfectly designed life forms and there’s almost nothing we can’t do.

So what do we do with this superpower? Here’s the thing: the mind is always creating and teaching. We have no choice. Even when you are completely uninspired; perhaps watching television, gossiping, or arguing—you are still creating. You may be creating negative stories in your mind, problems, or issues—but you are creating! Anything done in the egoic state is, of course, a miscreation. To remain in the ego is to fall beneath your calling and potential while creating misery for yourself and others.

To know spirit is to let your powers inspire you just as they inspire us all. You are extraordinary. Embrace your power to create and know what it is for. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
