#tbt Before dance this was me 2 left feet but ya boy could march his ass off and handle a rifle with precision. Yeeeuh I was an Army JROTC brat. Circa 2008 at nationals where we competed against schools of every military branch in the country. Dont get it twisted there are plenty of mediocre programs but we were nice. Ya boy was Armed Drill Team Commander and Battalion Commander and we got 1st in every single category this year. Ended with a clean sweep! Damn these were good times. This was also the year i decided to turn down my acceptance to West Point and go to a regular 4 year college so that i could dance. I miss these times and these people! Wonder where Id be if I stuck with it. Gotta find footage of me tossing that M1903a3 Springfield Remington around like nothin!

Economy of Man(rough)
Economy of Insanity. Economy is Insanity. Always at the expense of someone and something. The freedom of loving ourselves for the ways we value another more, a like on Instagram because it means more than our honesty, our dreams for liking what everyone else likes. Our freedom of thought for our mindless consumption. Advertisements for our intelligence. Yeah there's levels to this. Blood for the gas to go to, lies of nations for the gas to go fro, transparency for diplomacy, peace for hostility, peace of mind of a native people's for the hostility of a military presence, a military presence to bully some more for another war, another war for the pockets of the military industry complex, a kids childhood for your kids garment, a nonviolent offense for a life behind bars, a life behind bars for a broken home, a life behind bars and broken homes for the pockets of the privatized prison industry, for the prison CEO, for the pocket of the lobbyist, for the check of the legislator, for the senator. Alternative cures for sickness. Sickness for a prolonged death. A prolonged death for the pockets of big pharma and insurance. A human life for all of the money to enjoy their own. Lives of future generations for the money to enjoy their own. The life of the planet for the money to enjoy their own. Peace for greed. The human spirit for mental shackles. Fortitude for mental blinds. Ten Hail Mary's for the forgiveness of our sins. #ithinkthisisapoem#betterdays#existentialcrisis#vulnerable

#tbt NY&NJ all day. Beasts in this cast! @rob_bynes foolish for this one. Get into my boy real quick.
Happy monday! I usually get mad likes on pictures of my semi attractive face or body and with little about what i have to say so heres a little of both. To my #career oriented 9-5'ers, striving #entrepreneurs, from your #truth-seeking, starving #artist of a friend:
Many #success-minded people are addicted to ' #productivity ', to think that being industrious requires constant and #consistent action. Action that is either physical or mental that amounts to something material. That is our collective perception of what it means to work effectively. It's in our #fitness culture, glamorized in many interpretations of culture and societies, and the workplace but what if working smart meant knowing when to shut it off and completely let go for periods at a time? What we fail to realize is that this feeling that we need to be constantly DOING or THINKING something are expressions of #anxiety and the fear of losing control. How do i know? Ive grown up IN anxiety and both low chronic/major #depression since i was about 5 or 6. surprise! The thinking is the most widely recognized expression anxiety. The constant doing is the physical expression of anxiety. And it all goes back to our inability to be content with life as is. We are wanting better for ourselves a lot of the times not for the sake of being better, but out of disdain of ourselves and the inability to accept who we are NOW. We are afraid that if we stop " #grinding and #hustling " we will crumble, miss out, fall behind, subject to suffering at the hands of chaos and entropy of the world and universe; all the while failing to realize that this will backfire bc our intention stems from a state of feeling diminished that will only lead to diminished results. It sucks enjoyment out of the journey itself and impede any other beautiful expressions of true #progress bc we are obsessed with #future and end #results. (Contd)
Big thanks to @mrvinny for these shots! Lookin forward to the next

"When we look at the modern man, we HAVE to face the FACT that the modern man suffers from a kind of poverty of the spirit, which stands in glaring contrast with a scientific and technological abundance. We've learned to fly the air as birds, we've learned to swim the seas as fish, yet we haven't learned to walk the Earth as brothers and sisters." Words from MLK Jr truer now more than ever.
Was reading a book at @fixcoffeeco and was approached by a woman in her 50's. She stopped me and says "You're reading a book by one of my favorite psychologists (#Csikszentmihalyi) and I see you're writing diligently in your planner. I can tell you're one of my guys." Turns out she was a school #psychologist turned ex-business account exec at Verizon now runs a company aimed at creating #value and #progress in #society through #selfgnosis. We continue to tell each other our stories. She places her phone on the table and i see that sticker. I slam my wallet on the table in disbelief. There are no coincidences. #God, #miracle, #quantumentanglement, #lawofattraction, #luck whatever you call it. I just call it #life. Life's cool.
Clip from class with @derrellbullock a couple days ago. An amazing teacher and guide right here!
Your periodic fitness/movement health post. Just to show my body isnt just for looks; it actually functions. Flowing. Meditating. Practicing. Total mindbody connection. No outside thoughts or distractions. Coming from a history of impinged hips, lower back pain, patellar tendinitis, pulled hammies and groin that probably wouldnt allow me to do this. My dream is to share my lessons with dancers because workers like us dont get health coverage and we get paid shit despite the fact that our jobs are harder than many athletes. We ought to take our physical health way more seriously whether you freestyle, dance choreography, or are a ballerina. I dont say much because these posts arent as receptive to my following, but i know a considerable amount about how the mind and body functions and that has not only saved my job after tearing the strongest tendon in my body, it's made me stronger than before my injury and helped me address any weaknesses preventing further injury. Ditch the muscle relaxants and anti inflammatories. Movement is medicine.
In and out of frame but had to catch @denzel_chisolm 's steps before he dipped. Good vibes with these friends. Thanks for letting me rock out ps peep my last post if you wanna get that good focused training to the next level!
