Here’s what you have to do, this is my new theory: identify the vampire in your life. Find the vampire, identify the parasite.
I’m not saying everyone’s got one. If you’re walking around with those fucking vampire blues and you got the fucking heavy heart and you can’t feel happy and you feel bad, there may be an action that you need to take. That you’re afraid to take. That’s the vampire.
Find the life sucking situation that you’re afraid to kill. And the reason I say vampire is because vampires only go where they’re invited. And generally the situation that you’re in, you invited it in into your life and it’s sucking your life energy and your blood and your happiness away.
A lot of times you try to believe, you try to convince yourself that this thing is not a vampire but in your heart you know. You’re a servant to a fucking blood sucker. You’re a Renfield, this thing is sucking your life essence away.
Sometimes it’s doing it with a trade. Quite often it’ll be a bad trade. You’ll be in whatever the situation you’re in and you’ll feel like “it’s worth it, it’s kind of bad, but it’s still worth it…” This happens with jobs quite often, “But you know, it’s good enough…”
That’s the vampire and you gotta take a fucking stake and drive it into it’s heart.
How do you kill a vampire? Two ways: direct action - you don’t kill a vampire by making up with a vampire. You don’t kill a vampire by having a sit down talk with a vampire, you’re not going to to make friends with the vampire. There’s two ways to kill a vampire: you fucking put a steak in it’s heart and the other one is light! Sunlight!
Truth! Light! It’s the greatest metaphor of all time. You shine the light of truth onto the situation, fearlessly analyze it and then you’ll destroy it. You gotta act.” Duncan Trussell (via steakordie)
I really don’t think that you can become a fully developed human being unless you have some series of events in your life - more than one - that break down your vision of the world and provide you with deeper insight.
It doesn’t have to be psychedelics - it can be all sorts of different life experiences. It could be traveling, it could be meditation, it could be deep consideration for the world. A constant overview and a constant audit of your thoughts and the way you interact with people and your happiness and where it comes from. I think all of those are possibilities.
There are different ways to achieve the same effect. But unless you do have those things, you’re going to be a child.” Joe Rogan (via steakordie)
