Life Begins At The Edge Of Your Comfort Zone [Feel the Rush]
How often do you go outside your comfort zone? And when you do it. Do you do it out of fear or for the rush? We should all do it more often. Because it’s then that life happens and you are going forward on your journey. Happy hunting!
I’ve just been watching the movie Premium Rush. Wow what “A Ride” (Pun intended). I spent the whole movie jumping up and down, heart racing and shouting out loud. Maybe it’s just me. I’ve been riding my bike almost everyday my whole life just for fun. I also worked as a bike messenger in my hometown Halmstad. So maybe that’s why I get such a Kick from watching this movie. I also went to New York for first time this spring and revisiting many places here also get my mind “racing”. Joseph Gordon-Levitt does almost all of the cycling himself and it’s just crazy. Just see it with the rush in mind 🙂

What Is Real? [How Do You Define Real?]
What makes you feel real? We all know that the reality we perceive around us is just a very complex picture painted by our brain using an incredible rich amount of sensory data in form of firing synapses. It’s a marvel that our brain deceives us by making this picture seem so normal and “Real”.
“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.” — Philip K. Dick
When we enter the brain-state we are in when doing a full rush on a bike ride, like in the movie Premium Rush. Everything just seem so much more real, when we are in that state of mind. “Open up the pores and take it all in” like Jason Silva says. So why does so few of us do it for “Real”? We should all do it more often! Put ourselves in a state of Premium Rush. It’s also the way I feel when I dance really, really intense to House and Hardstyle music. I activate the Hive-Switch in my brain, like Jonathan Haidt calls it.

“How do you define real?” — Morheus
Here is my attempt I made over 15 years ago after being inspired by movies like Ghost in the Shell:
|R e a||
l i t y
|Online with your brain
On track with your senses
In focus with your mind
In aim with your dreams
In contact with your body
In phase with Reality
|In thoughts we wander
In chaos we exist
In truth we believe
To destiny we yield
In information trust
In Reality we live
Feel The Quickening [Expand Your Reality Together]
The world is full of wonder. Much of it is destroyed every day. Never to return to Earth. Let’s fight for a better tomorrow! Take that step. Feel the rush when you are dangling close to the Edge. It’s called life! Go out and live it! Dance the Night Away. Sprint in Sunlight, Moonlight or Rain on your favorite vehicle [Shoes included]. The Adrenalin pumping in your veins. Your heart pounding.
Feel the Quickening!
And do it together!
