I’ve been a bit busy filming the last couple months, so I’ve decided to update an old idea and share it… with a wonderful little insight into our own future that will allow you to kill “worry”, with malice!! -Sean Patrick Flanery
Devolution, The “LIFE” doctrine, and The “RESPONSIBILITY” decree.
“Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve it’s life than destroy it”. -Henry David Thoreau
Personal responsibility lives and breeds in our own backyards… with a little sunshine and water.
There is an element of choice that lies at the core of our existence. And the degree of delicacy that we hold life is perhaps the most defining quality of our kind. The height of hypocrisy is to promote the destruction of our own life while claiming to promote life’s extension everywhere else. Every single thing we do today will either speed deaths walk, or slow it down. We all have a choice, and it’s time to choose. For the earth is all we know, and we must pay to play the human way.
There’s a very good reason that the proper protocol and safety procedure on all airlines requires the adult to put the oxygen mask on himself before assisting the child. Because if the caregiver dies, the care receiver dies. So, don’t even mention a “carbon footprint” if you’re not taking care of your OWN footprint. -Sean Patrick Flanery
“A person will sometimes devote all his life to the development of one single part of his body – the wishbone.” -Robert Frost
SO, repeat after me: “I will sink, I will swim, or I will go down with the ship. But I will use my freedom of choice. The blaming of my condition on others or my circumstances ends today. Today, I take complete responsibility for my life and it’s progress… or it’s demise.”
And for those swimmers out there, find a mirror, look yourself in the eyes, and make yourself this promise every morning when you wake:
“I pledge allegiance to the health of this wondrous jewel that is my body. One instrument, under God, that every positive act I intend to contribute to this world is necessary for, and without which, the provisions of love, knowledge, and good will I have allocated for others will vanish into the ether. I will take paramount care of the one solitary vessel that I have been given with which every single valuable & transferable gift I have for others must pass through. For the good of life, my loved ones and my legacy, this I promise. Today, I choose life. For I acknowledge that a healthy life is a much more magnificent monument than a cathedral.”
I KNOW OF NO PAIN SO GREAT THAT I WOULD EXCHANGE EVEN EXISTENCE FOR ITS REMOVAL. TRAINING HURTS BUT IT PROLONGS LIFE, SO BRING THE PAIN.
“A victim of collision on the open sea. Nobody ever said life was free. Sink, swim, go down with the ship, but use your freedom of choice.”
“In ancient Rome, there was a poem, about a dog who found two bones. He picked at one. He licked the other. He ran in circles until he dropped dead.”
“Freedom of choice is what you’ve got. Then when you’ve got it, you don’t want it. It seems to be the rule of thumb. Don’t be trapped by what you see, you’ve got two ways to go. Freedom of choice is what you’ve got. Freedom FROM choice is what you want.”
“I’ll say it again in the land of the free… use your freedom of choice.” -DEVO
“A MAN SOONER OR LATER DISCOVERS THAT HE IS THE MASTER-GARDNER OF HIS SOUL, THE DIRECTOR OF HIS LIFE.” -JAMES ALLEN
So? Tell me, are you responsible? Are you willing to let go of the story titled “It’s not my fault”? If so, then I’ve got a wonderful surprise for you: You will NEVER again have to worry about what the future holds for you… because you’ve now discovered who holds your future. -Sean Patrick Flanery
After all, are we not men?
Good night, God bless, and SHINE… until tomorrow.
-Sean Patrick Flanery
