1. No matter how bad your life can seem, you can always make it worse.

1/ #Masterworks is a #parasite 🦠not a #unicorn🦄!

For"democratiz[ing] art" humanity's most impassioned faculty-eternally evolving thus inherently UNSTABLE- must secretly FORCE STABILITY via #totalitarian methods 2 TRANSFORM #CULTURALCAPITAL in2 $ for"all investors"

2/as I took this pic of us painting new fresh art over tired&worn gimmicks of an #artmarket "commodity" we were forwarding the human #aesthetic at the request of building's owner, but simultaneously &unintentionally we were devaluing stock portfolios! Hence #GANGSTALKERS began..
3/ assemble around me in a threatening manner just after #artgallery owner #TonyTaglianetti shouted "it's not up to the building's owner what they have on their walls" and then made a call from across the street..

#AmericaIsOnTheBallot "Every democracy or many democracies in their histories have taken a flier on a populist fast-talking con man. I come from Minnesota, we have a governor we took a flier on like that, it happens in history. You can do it once but when you do it twice, then 1/
it's no longer about who he is. It’s about who you are. The whole world will look #differently at US if we were to reaffirm & re-elect this man, because then the world will actually start looking at us really how it looks at Russia & China. Just another #transactional country. 2/
They’ll look at us as a country that #decided to #change the #StatueOfLiberty from “give me your tired, your poor, those seeking & yearning to be #free, to get the #hell off my lawn… & that will affect the whole world. The world likes to make fun of America. 3/

There is a coin.

With Envy/Insecurity/Resentment on one side, the other being Schadenfreude.
Neuroimaging studies show a fascinating connection between Envy & Schadenfreude. Envy registers as activation in some of the limbic & cortical regions linked to pain perception.Whereas happiness at the misery of the person one is envious towards triggers the dopaminergic pathways
Studies show [Hidehiko Takahashi, Motoichiro Kato et al] that higher the activation of #Envy circuits in a person, the higher is the dopaminergic activity when the person one is envious of is "punished" or suffers misery, i.e., #Schadenfreude

If someone feels lack in their own life, then someone else's success may be felt as if it's something taken away or now unavailable to them. That the 'pie' is small & not enough for everyone to have a slice or as much as they wanted. This can leave them feeling envious.
The response can be to feel envious of THEIR perception of the other person's success or what they think they have. Envious attacks towards others can be subtle, in the form of questioning their choices or what they are doing. This is to destroy, attack or diminish their efforts.
If that is destroyed then the other doesnt 'have' that success. In the same way as saying 'if I can't have it neither can they'. An envious attack happens as a reaction & we can be on the receiving end of one in a split second & feel attacked, thinking we've done something wrong.

1. O meek Saviour and Prince of Peace,
implant in me the virtues
of gentleness and patience.
Let me curb the fury of ANGER
(cont'd in comment section)

#freedom #sin #anger #Christianity #Christiantwitter Image
... and restrain all resentment and impatience
so as to overcome evil with good,
attain Your peace,
and rejoice in Your love.

(#prayer to be freed of the seven #deadly #sins, Day 1)
2. O Model of humility,
divest me of all PRIDE and arrogance.
Let me acknowledge
my weakness and sinfulness,
so that I may bear mockery and contempt for Your sake
and esteem myself as lowly in Your sight.

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.
