the intrepid traveler

i'm tyler. 21 trips around the sun and counting. i keep a watch on human affairs from a safe orbit.
i enjoy making music, dry humor, philosophy, and watching wacky shit.

"There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle."

If you fight for truth and kindness by being truthful and kind, then you know the true Way.  If you “fight” for “truth and kindness” with anger, deceit, hatred, and narrow-mindedness, you’re only feeding into the proprietors of anger, deceit, hatred, and narrow-mindedness.  

It is not enough to see the problem.  It is not enough to simply take any action.  Only through acting mindfully and knowingly, and always keeping the end goal of peace for all in mind, can the problem be solved in a way in which it won’t happen again in some way.

End the cycle.  Don’t just put the same broken chain on a new bike and call it fixed.
