Bill Hicks – It’s Just a Ride

Just a Ride

The amazing comedian Bill Hicks paints a philosophical painting of life, simplifying all the complexities and subtexts of human interaction into a simple statement, “It’s Just a Ride”. This Bill Hicks piece inspires goodwill, social responsibility, and inner exploration.

Here’s what we can do to change the world right now… to a better ride – Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defense each year, and instead spend it feeding, clothing, and educating the poor of world, which it would many times over; not one human being excluded, and we can explore space together… both inner and outer, together forever in peace.

I have recently discovered Bill Hicks and his material which I highly recommend to fans of comedy, honesty, and provocative thought.

The Real You

I’m more and more entranced by this video with each view. Alan Watts discusses what it is to find oneself and awaken to the universality of life.

You are something the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is something the whole ocean is doing

I am you, you are me, they are all us… this is one of the messages conveyed in this post. Whether you believe that to its fullest extent like Alan Watts or not, there is a message that we can all benefit from.

Do good to others, when you are happy, share and spread the feeling, and let go of as much negativity as possible.

Jim Carrey on the Power of Thought and Positive Intent

A very introspective Jim Carrey speaks at  the 2009 Inaugural GATE Event (Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment) on how a drastic change of perspective taught him about the human connection, the power of thought, and positive intent.

I saw that I was bigger than what I do, I was bigger than my body. I was everything and everyone… I was no longer a fragment of the universe, I was the universe.

GATE is a group that basically wants everyone in the entertainment industry to go through a transformation similar to the one Jim Carrey went through. The purpose of this is to change the entertainment industry into projecting content that doesn’t make us think the world is a sick sad place.

Maybe one day it won’t be so depressing to watch the news.

the birth of the GATE movement, recognizing the role that entertainment and media plays in projecting our reality, and supporting the transformation of these industries in order to make those projections more positive and life enhancing.
