Dear friends,

Lots of stuff has happened in the past few weeks. A war broke out, inflation is going through the roof, and Elon Musk has bought Twitter. Reality is so much stranger than fiction that I am spending a lot of energy on keeping myself together. Finding a balance between the tension (of keeping up with external events) and the sense of duty (to protect the interior essence) is proving to be difficult.

But, despite the difficulty, nevertheless, if I had to choose between these two, I would always put the interior essence first. What I mean by interior essence is: a piece that remains immutable through all kinds of changes. I cannot check if such a piece exists in others, but it does exist inside me, for sure.

You could call this a person's innate nature. Or you could call this a fixed habit that took shape over a long time. Some call it free will; but to me, this piece is about the most un-free part of a human being. It is the farthest thing from choice; something that has "always" been so.

Anyway, abandoning this interior essence due to external circumstances would be the saddest thing.

Thus, recently, I've been reducing "the bulk." All the expanded investments I'd felt comfortable with, in the sense of finance, creativity, operations, and time, I am attempting to rein back in, now that the world has become this loud. Here are some simple examples:

Avoid doom-scrolling on social media. For this, delete the apps from my phone except when actually posting.
Stop watching videos, for God's sake. (Makes me dizzy.)
If that makes me feel too lonely, listen to audio.
Even better, read in tranquility.

The content of the reading material didn't seem to matter much. Even an extremely cruel horror book had a more peaceful effect than the most gentle romantic comedy movie.

Right now, I am reading Gregory Funaro's "The Sculptor." It features a crazy serial killer who kills people and turns them into Michelangelo's sculptures. SHOCK. And yet, it calmed my mind much more effectively than a peaceful cat channel on Youtube.

I read just about everything on my iPad, and blue light didn't seem to matter either. My guess is that this is because written material--whether it's being read or written, whether it's on digital devices or on paper--involves a process of gazing inward at one's own pace, in silence.

So, if you're as overwhelmed as me these days, I suggest shutting down/deleting anything that moves--except organisms that are moving in the offline world.

I'm talking about the moving images.
The endlessly-refreshed recommendation feeds that pop up out of nowhere.
All kinds of figurative and literal noise.

Life is much better without them.
Highly recommended!

Other than that, these days, I am pondering about the hypothetical horrors of living in an ancient castle.
Also, about the general grotesqueness of teeth and power.
Lastly, about the power of storytelling in marketing.

You can scan the transcripts, listen in podcast format, or do neither. In these turbulent times, let's all put our own respective essence first, above all else.
