Some Of My Heroes

“We’re just two wild and crazy guys” – Yortuk and Georg Festrunk

Wild And Crazy Guys

Unlike the quote above, Joe Walsh’s “I’m just an ordinary average guy” fits me to a tee. In spite of this, I’d like to think that I’m open to new ideas and thinking. At the moment, here are some of my favorite, inspirational, weird, and forward looking (but pragmatic) thinkers:

Check out what one or more of these whack jobs have to say if  you’re yearning to explore and discover new opportunities that may crack the  concrete in your brain and challenge your same-old, same-old mental models of the world. If you think there is an “edge” to my blarticle posting style, then you should give all the credit to those dudes.

Who are your favorite thinkers, visionaries, and potential status-quo busters? What, you don’t have any? Why not?

    I really loved this.. “When you consciously choose to explore and probe weird and non-standard ideas that go against the norm, you’ve got to watch out for yourself. Internalizing and then subsequently espousing your new learnings in public can be detrimental to your health.”

    somewhere in Jed McKenna’s first book, he says something like ‘be careful when you screw (he used the f-bomb actually) with other people’s reality’.. or i guess what they PERCEIVE as reality.

    I sometimes feel like an alien when I TRY to discuss some of the spiritual things I read and learn so I’ve pretty much stopped. It accidentally comes out at times and the other person will just sorta smile politely. haha

    In an Adya talk recently he made mention of what it would be like if we all had those bubbles over our heads – like in cartoons – that billboarded out what we are truly thinking to the whole world. KER-A-ZEE! ha. I’d sure be trying to cover mine up!

    have a good rest of the week 🙂

    Hi Lana,

    I feel like an alien pretty much *all* of the time. Bit by bit, I seem to be accepting it more and more.

    Thanks for stoppin’ by.

    P.S. – If my bubble was exposed, I’d be sleeping with Jimmy Hoffa.
