Raise your Flag

Leave a comment Standard

I have a anarchy tattoo on my face and my wife cusses like a sailor. We are a little edgy and I like that about us. After all, our brand name is – Souls Gone Wild. We decided to create our own unique path and here we are, traveling and teaching in a RV. This blog may offend people, but the intention is to bring inspiration. My eBook, Slaves to Society, is designed to light people up. It is suppose to get you thinking  about what you want to pursue and why you aren’t going after it. But yeah, it is very raw and vulgar. I just started a new book which will be about our adventures on the road. That too, will be filled with sarcasm, humor, creativity and vulgarity. Eventually I would like to create a book on meditation and most may think that it should be very proper, clean and professional. Nope, I will also keep it real with that too. There are plenty of boring books on spirituality already out there. 

I think people appreciate realness, but I do recognize with my voice and content, people will either love it or hate it and I am completely okay with it. I don’t create for others. I create for myself. That is how I keep myself happy. Look at music. Bands evolve over time and so can their style. Fans tend to get upset about this, but in the end it is the musicians music, not the fans. There will always be someone who will love your art and those who will hate it. 

I have a great affinity for self expression and embracing my identity. One of the best feelings I can’t think of is being myself. Often I’ve felt that I’ve had to tune everything down. Well, it is time to turn up the volume! It’s time to raise the flag on the pirate ship and show who I really am. Some might think, geez Andrew, are you coming out of the closet or something? Haha – no. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but no, I’ve just always felt I couldn’t be intense, or edgy or say what is on my mind. I’ve felt that I’ve had to hold it all back. That my friends is not healthy. Hoist your freak flag and be proud of you, and those that don’t like it – fuck em.

Find Your Freedom,
Andrew

Sound of Purpose

Leave a comment Standard

What you gets you inspired?
Maybe its time to retire the ball and chains
Don’t be afraid of your creative fire
Don’t be scared of the growing pains
Take in your energy and let it spread
Free your mind and clear your head
What will spark the passion in your heart?
Won’t you find it before you are dead?
Won’t you honor your cause?
Won’t you be yourself?
Won’t you play the game, you always dreamt of?
Do you hear that sound?
The phone ringing on and on
The sound of purpose is on the line
Maybe it’s time to pick up and listen to your own song…

Stand up, Stand out

Leave a comment Standard

to be safe is to fit in
throw on hat, a jersey – your team wins
Stand out and your subject to a shout out
Judgement and invalidation 
Should it be enough to scare you away from validation? 
My heart is here, on display
Stronger than fear
And the negative energy that comes my way
What makes you unique?
Go deep within
I’m the puzzle piece that just won’t fit in
I’m finding my own safety
I’ll take my first chakra for a spin
the speed of blue, may be too fast for you
But I love the creative fast lane, I love to cruise
What is your energy?
It’s time to choose

Deep Dive into my Voice

Leave a comment Standard

If you haven’t already noticed, I have a great affinity for expressing myself. Today I felt a minor breakthrough. It feels as though I am going deeper into my voice. For most of my life I have kept quiet. Speaking in front of people is something I love, but also terrifies me. My beliefs never matched my environment, but now that we are traveling full-time, things feel different. When I am traveling, I feel free. When I feel free, I tend to want to express myself more, especially through writing. And the more I write, the more I get comfortable with saying what I think and how I feel. I also realize the more comfortable I get, I am either going to inspire people or offend people. 

I wrote a long short story called Slaves to Society. It is based on true events, but is weaved with fiction. It is honest, raw and vulgar. I didn’t hold back. It felt really good writing it. It feels good to write in general and right now I am on a writing high. I never write to hurt peoples feelings or to make anyone feel bad. That’s not my intention. My goal as a writer is to clear my mind and heart. It is to light people up and make them think differently. I want to inspire others. Someone I find inspirational is Gary Vaynerchuck. He is a very successful entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker. He doesn’t say what you want to hear, he says what you need to hear. Some people may find him harsh or offensive. I find him refreshing. He cuts through the bullshit.

What are some of the most difficult things in life? Maybe it’s being honest with yourself. Maybe it is just being yourself. Sometimes we can be afraid to speak honestly, because it may hurt someones feelings. Sometimes we avoid showing a side of ourselves because it is not accepted by a group of people. Sometimes we lie to ourselves to avoid the pain of starting over. I’m not perfect and I have struggled with all of these topics. It is why I am so passionate about embracing my truth and following my dreams.

My spiritual teacher once told my class that he hoped our lives fell apart. That is a statement that can be viewed as harsh and offensive. What he meant was that he hoped that any of the lies that we were holding onto would fall apart. That is one of the reasons we were in the class in the first place. We all wanted to see our truth and dissolve the lies we were living. We all wanted to live more of an authentic life. Sometimes it is uncomfortable admitting to yourself and others that you are living a lie. Sometime it is difficult being honest.

As I take this deep dive into my voice I know I will inspire and I will offend. I know some people will love what I say and also hate what I say. Right now I am neutral to it all. I am just going to keep writing because the more I change from within, the more of an impact I can have on the world. Standing in your truth, that is how I see people changing the world. 

Find Your Freedom,

Andrew
