Change.... by Modern Adversary

All I can hope is that those who see me today won’t recognize me tomorrow, because I’m not finished yet, there is uselessness in ways that I think and assumptions that I’ve made. There is work to be done, or work to be undone.

When we aim at being “lean”, we aren’t just referring to the excess tissue; we mean removing everything that is not useful. We mean taking into account the whole pile of rubbish that has been accumulated over a lifetime and going through bit by agonizing bit. This means clearing it down to the foundation, stripping away everything that doesn’t functionally keep you stable, and perhaps, in some cases, going beyond. We want to Rip up from the root the patterns and behaviors of comfort, the assumptions about ourselves and others; cutting away anything and everything in order to find out what is useful and what is not.

Change your attitude. Unfuck your head. Make an honest, unsentimental accounting of your present condition. Prepare to be disappointed. Define what you want instead, clearly. By clear I mean precise, and feasible. An unrealistic objective is sure to sabotage the process. Hit the books. Try and err. Inquire. Risk. Mimic. Insist. Resist.

Molotov or Evolution | Non Prophet by Modern Adversary

I made myself on a thesis of destruction. I couldn’t become who I wanted or do what I imagined without first destroying what allowed me to recognize what I might be. I blew up what prevented me from becoming without erasing the vision and intelligence nurtured by my upbringing. So thank you, dad, on Father’s Day. You nourished, of course, but smothered with equal effect. So I found Nietzsche. He steered me toward the notion of “active nihilism” whereby I might raze myself in order to rebuild, to create and live life as my own work of art. This, ultimately, is what I hoped the gym would become: a place where individuals could self-destruct in order to become. And it did. It is. But every group becomes its own problem.
