Says the guy who DIDN’T invent the light bulb…
This is part 2 of my last post. I’m not going to preface it with as much, read the first post to find out what’s going on, lazy. These are just my notes and explanations of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. I know it might not seem like it, but I am a spiritual fiend. I am constantly reading anything I can on topics like this. Why? I don’t know. Maybe I’m searching for a loop-hole into Heaven? Maybe I’m just looking for something or someone to tell me I’m a good person. Most likely a combination of the two.

I have not been writing nearly as much as I would like to. However my true love, stand up comedy, has gotten in the way. Tie in some personal issues and the start-up of my company Get Involved Comedy and I have been stretched pretty thin.
There is one thing that I never stop doing and that one thing is reading. Since New York State thought it was a good idea for me to stop drinking and doing drugs, I have had to find numerous other outlets for me to “get out of my mind” for a little bit. Video games, the gym and reading seem to help me accomplish this the most. Your mind can’t successfully concentrate on two things at once so when I am reading I am fully enthralled in the book. My personal problems fall to the wayside and my brain shuts off for a bit. I highly suggest finding things to get you out of your own head when alcohol stops working for the most of you. It will eventually stop working, by the way. Some people call these things “hobbies” but that sounds so trivial. Find something you love and let it kill you, like Bukowski says.
The two books that I have read are The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. We’ll talk more about them after the jump. First, let me just preface this post by saying that most of this article is from either one of those books. I’m paraphrasing and misquoting and doing terrible things in the literary world because this is a blog and not my thesis, so eat a dick.
Also, I will be breaking it into two posts after realizing how much I had to say about this. This must be how George R. R. Martin feels!
