“We’re all captains of our own ships, sailing our blood vessels through the sea of life. Sometimes we sail into raging storms of negativity, fear, hatred or depression. But it’s the water outside that keeps you afloat, take it on board and you’ll sink.
These are my ships rules:
Rule one – life is a game. Everyday remember this mantra; my game, my rules.
If you’re not playing your own game and making up your own rules, then you’re playing someone else’s. And most likely bein’ played. And some people play fucked up nasty games. Personally, I like mine to be all a bit of fun.
Rule two – life is a dance: enjoy it. Dancings fuckin ace, I love dancing. It powers up your happy and makes you into a positive energy machine. If you’re full of good energy then nothin’ can touch you if you keep it that way, not really. When you’re dancin in a club, the music doesn’t stop when someone treads on your foot, and neither do you.. so why do it at any other time? Dance through life, and enjoy every fuckin’ step.
If the worlds not playing your kinda music then sing your own song, as loud as you can and dance to your own rhythm. The right people will eventually hear your tune and join in, or you’ll just dance alone and be happy that you’re not copying someone else’s steps. Beat out the rhythm of your heart, and make your mark on life an awesome tattoo, not a scar.
Rule three – life is magic. We’re all magic thought wizards, individual sparks of a divine consciousness co-creating a shared reality with our magic wizard brains. Our brains are both a receiver and a transmitter. Projecting our intentions out into the universes all ears, and will give us what it thinks we’re asking for. So pay attention to the thoughts and deeds you pour into your world, they are the influence you exert on our collective reality.
Choose your mood, make your own happy, beam out smiles, and never stop creating. We’re the most creative things we know of and we endlessly come up with ways of gettin’ something else to do it, or someone.
Get stuck in. Make mistakes, and turn them into lessons. That’s what they’re for and how we learn to grow our wings.. and we need wings. We are the caterpillar, life is our cocoon. No matter what your views on religion and spirituality they all boil down to one thing: we don’t have a fucking clue, and never will until it’s over. Choose the view you like and let others choose theirs, but they all boil down to the forces of awesome and the forces of bastard. Good vs evil. Positive vs negative. We’re made out of the potentiality for both – it’s up to us to decide our measures. So feed the right habits.
Armageddon isn’t happening outside in the world, we might think its the end of the world but that’s because it just might be the end of ours. It’s playing out individually in all our heads you see. We get to choose the outcome with the way we behave. Be your own god and your own devil: he’s got all the best tunes anyway.
Look out for the people the universe puts in your path, they’re there to help us.. or for us to help them… it’s secretly both shhhh. Be nice, the universe nice’s back. And if it ever gets a bit much, just go outside and smile at a stranger. Catch their eye and spread some happiness: you’ll get it back tenfold. Because if you want to make your world better, you’ll make it better for the others around you.”

This song came on as I was driving home, and although this was sent to me by a dear, caring and wonderful individual at a time when I was feeling very lost… today is the first time I really absorbed it.
