New Prayer

There's a few reasons that people from other countries spend a few hours praying every day: to reflect, to release, to be grateful, to fuel up. We don't do that here. I want to, but I can never find the time. In fact, saying "I can never find the time" is kind of a little prayer, or I guess, the opposite of a prayer, that  I say all day long. The amount of time I spend wishing I was somewhere else, or with someone else, or in a different  place in my life, is also a good chunk that I could put to better use. I'm not religious, I don't believe in God, I believe in people and spirits and that we are connected somehow. I believe that we need to help each other and that it's important to be giving and honest and un-judgmental. I believe in love and I believe in laying a huge fart after saying something like that. I believe, wholeheartedly, in keeping it real.

Here are some ways that we spend time instead of praying:

getting ready to go
jerking off/watching porn
looking at our hand-held devices
getting coffee
watching TV/movies/netflix/youtube vids

Those are the top 7 anyway. I made that up but I think it's true. I think a new one might be blogging/taking selfies/instagramming/tweeting (again, kind of the opposite of real reflection).

Think about that while you're sitting in traffic this weekend.

ADDENDUM: A friend just wrote and said you can pray while sitting in traffic, or drinking coffee or jerking off! It's a beautiful thing.
