The birth of a dream, that is how this song feels. I remember the day I thought about this song, I have just arrived from coaching swim and my son Luke was doing physical therapy and he was listening to Row your boat. My first thought was, “that is not a workout song”, specially from someone that came with a purpose of overcoming something. Well, that is what it says in Luke’s birth astral map anyways. So, I did what every Dad would do, I switch the station, to Punk rock and metal.
After going around the world 4.25 times with more 171 000 km accumulated between training and racing ironman; I realized Luke needed some songs to workout, and motivate him to keep following his dreams. Not only Luke by kids in general. That is when I decided to make my running partner (my air guitar) into a real music. Yes, I did inumerous run listening to metal and punk playing my air guitar like a crazy person. What can I say, that was the best part of doing ironman.
Here it is, Episode 8: Rock your boat dance ritual – air guitar!
Truth is, when I decided to write my book one of my motivation was so that parents could possibly understand their misfit child. But I also wanted to motivate people to follow their dreams, however is not any dream.
Let’s be honest, I am no Tony Ribbons, cause I am no guru. I am not a Dalai Lama, meaning I am not a monk. I am no priest. Neither I am a hero, I just like to keep it real. Having said that I am good at some things when it comes to all that: Attitude!
But what is my attitude? This is no joke. My book is literally about dreams, like real dreams that actually had. Meaning, those dreams weren’t about money or fame, they were real vivid dreams that I decided to follow and that stated opening doors in my life. What I am trying to say is that the attitude is of doing even with all odds against me.
Truth being said by, in theory going crazy, and deciding to follow a dream, lead me to connect a bunch of dots in my life. Gave purpose to my pain, and made me realize that the native Americans were right in so many things. One of them is the theory that dreams can guide or save someones soul.
Nobody really understands a dream, and maybe a dream is not meant to be understood, but is meant to be followed. I honestly believe if the dreams are from your heart, you cannot go wrong. Therefore Rock your boat, life is about following your dreams….
The other day I came across this video about a reaction to the most spoken medicine on the planet right now. I watched out of curiosity, because the truth is there is nothing that will change my opinion about it since is based on intuition. And I won’t sell my soul, because in this world this is the only you can really lose is your soul. Meaning I won’t betray my intuition, because I have way too much proof that is the best way to live life.
Anyways, I still don’t know if he really got a reaction or not, but what I do know is that he got a lot of hate in the comments. Which made the video go viral hateful comments made the video go viral), and he is donating the profits of the video to charity, which is awesome. I didn’t read the comments on that video, I just watched and went straight to the second one where he tells about his reaction to haters. Apparently he got a lot of hate from the unvaccinated, which he claims, in the second video that their are uneducated based on how and what they wrote.
As I was watching the video a movie was passing by my mind, and kinda going back a few months ago, when I left Facebook for awhile. I left exactly becuase I got tired of the hateful comments because of my choice of being unvaccinated. I lost friends becuase of this, and even got shamed by Pope Francis. I made a video about it, but I took it down, because it felt like I was playing victim. ( However I wrote in this blog about it). Then, I just said fuck it I don’t need that kind of energy, and left Facebook for awhile, best thing ever. Anyways, as I continue the video, another movie pass by my mind was when he said uneducated, which I am. I mean, I tried college 3 times and it’s not for me, and I am glad I guit. I guit because I knew it that going that route I would end up killing myself. Therefore I made the choice or should I say the foolish choice, per society views (what I heard throughout my life), of being an athlete.
My point is, peole you migh have a PhD, or a master degree, college and all the education in world and still not be wise. There are people in the world that do follow the dreams of their heart, their intuition and they are very connected to their soul. Even if they don’t look like the “perfect people”. Or they don’t look like the type of people that do that kinda of choice. Society loves judging a book by its covers.
Anyways, it feels like there are a few people affected by this medicine because I came across another video. And seems like they are scared to talk, and that is a horrible feeling. I know for experience, and it’s a lonely dark place that I don’t wish for anyone. I believe in the weapon of choice, if those reactions are true, let’s hear their voice without judgment because Love and empathy starts from within.
A conspiracy of one Episode 3. I suggest watching until the end becuse in the end I speak seriously. Becuse in this episode we go in depth who is who in the band. The truth is everything is connected and have a meaning, that is why is more than a band, is a conspiracy. Anyways, here it is the English version:
