Hello my friends.

I recently came across this video by Bill Hicks where he gives his views on the meaning of life. When I first saw the video it's message didn't really sink in. It was a little while later when I was having a bad time when it really hit me... Life is just a ride.

Whenever I have a bad day or things don't go my way I remember the simple yet profound message in Bill Hicks' video... It's just a ride. Some people like going faster than others, some enjoy it more than others and some forget what it's all about.

Sometimes I forget this. I find that I can be reading on the internet for hours about how we are all being poisoned and plotted against by people who have everything they could ever want. I watch the news on TV and try to figure out what's next in this global game of chess, and when the commercials come on I look out for all the little subliminal advertising techniques that are used to pollute out minds...

Then I have to remind myself of Bill Hicks' four magical words, "It's just a ride". All my worries about the past, present and future are put perfectly into perspective and I become desensitized to the troubles.

Anyway, I just wanted to share the video and give a few thoughts on it. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.

Peace, Love and Happiness.

R.I.P. Bill Hicks

I prefer the school of thought, but a ride seems more exciting... Bill had it down!

Here some more great quotes from Bill Hicks, the Philosopher

“Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.”

“We are the facilitators of our own creative evolution.”

“I love the Pope, I love seeing him in his Pope-Mobile, his three feet of bullet proof plexi-glass. That's faith in action folks! You know he's got God on his side.”

“I'm tired of this back-slapping "Isn't humanity neat?" bull#. We're a virus with shoes, okay? That's all we are.”

“You know we armed Iraq. I wondered about that too, you know during the Persian Gulf war those intelligence reports would come out: "Iraq: incredible weapons - incredible weapons." How do you know that? "Uh, well...we looked at the receipts."”

And my personal favourite...

“Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye.”

Enjoy the ride, friends.
