Upon the Pursuit of Inspiration and Peace within a World Gone Mad

Intro

There’s no question that New York City can be one of the most inspirational places on the face of the planet but sometimes it’s not so easy do keep oneself inspired amidst all the problems that come along with the shortcomings of living in a metropolis such as this one. Those very flaws, associated with big city life, come in many forms and, in turn, are worsened by the very people whose paths one crosses; who are also dealing with their own associated headaches. Thus, the cycle begins and it continues as it always has. Discouragement and negative vibes coursing through the air like a virus from one individual to the next. Obviously, just as important as the motivation is the need for peace. They’re both what I consider to be the most prized spiritual intangibles I’m forever pursuing and that which millions of others, whether they’re aware of it or not, are pursuing as well. Here within this page we hope to help inspire you in some form or fashion with updates and additions to come.  🙂

Matthew McConaughey's words on the pursuit of what's important in one's life.

A veteran, award winning actor with his take on happiness and joy. Yet another fave of ours worthy of a listen.

Within Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary are two of my favorite definitions of ‘Inspiration’:

  • a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation
  • the drawing of air into the lungs

Inspirational Speech from Arnold Schwarzenegger

As one who aspires to the very best of health in body and mind I found the following speech from Mr. Schwarzenegger to be a rousing testament to one’s possibilities.

“What’s not okay is when you fail and you stay down, whoever stays down is a loser and Winners will fail and get up, fail and get up, fail and get up…that is a Winner!”

~ Arnold Schwarzenegger

“Do not be so quick to judge or label, for one day the objects of ridicule may become what they are ever so used to being seen as. And when this happens it is too late, another soul has fallen to the cruel persecution of todays society and become what they are seen as instead of who they really are. A person, just like everyone else.”
