Dread has many fronts, irony included. You tell me you forget where you park the car at Whole Foods, often leave your key in the front door, got lost once picking up the kids from school. Then you jag the other way, minimizing what you’ve just told me, say you’ve always been “ditzy,” are famous for it. But your face mutinies, a fasciculation (tremor) in one corner of your mouth—the bluffer’s tell.

51. If an action is not relevant to everyone and everything, it has no relevance at all in its essence. Its illusory significance comes from subjective perception that exists only in your mind.
52. Possible prospects of our lives are determined by the blahs of our minds.
53. Many would think that in the essence of life, our primary conscious or subconscious objective is to find happiness, but if the truth should be told, we seek pleasure above all else.
54. We are not in complete control of our actions. We are slaves of our habits, unaware of things that destroy our awareness and put us in psychosis like state. In this altered state of consciousness we become nothing more than unconscious observer of events in our lives.
55. If you truly want to achieve abundance in your life, first you must realize where the boundaries of your perception lie and then move beyond them.
56. Most of us never question the nature of what we experience, at least not on daily basis. Thus, leaving us unaware, oblivious and unconscious to anything beyond perception of the mind.
57. Our beliefs shape our reality.
58. If opened to the possibilities, even a blind man can see the truth.
59. We already subconsciously know all there is to be known, we just have to find a way to reach this knowledge.
60. There is no way for us to find bliss beyond the limits of our inner perspective.
