When our personal Geometry gets out of line, it has to be corrected.
Living out of sync with our stated goals, aesthetic, and principles creates chaos and confusion throughout our various systems, and if there was a readout display on us, it would be throwing “check engine” lights.
It’s a tough fact of life that positive motion and progress are always difficult, where laziness and bad decisions so often seem “easy.”
It’s another tough fact that this is why most people are disordered, unproductive, sedentary and unsuccessful.
But our rulesets and self-programming, our Geometry, ultimately creates a freedom through structure- if we put it together correctly, and then simply follow it, our choices become easy, and always “the right choice.”
If you feel yourself falling “out of line,” give yourself a hard head-check and see where you need a correction or a reset.
It’s unlikely that anyone else will do it for you.

Sometimes it’s easiest to start with physicality when we are struggling with organization, willpower, or feelings of negativity.
Small physical changes can lead to huge mental ones.
A 10 minute walk in the morning can change perspectives in a really incredible way.
A few moments of sunshine can banish many dark thoughts.
“Self-control is the chief element in self-respect, and self-respect is the chief element in courage.”
“Therefore, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you.
For those who are near you are far away... and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast.... be happy about your growth, in which of course you can't take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind;
be confident and calm in front of them and don't torment them with your doubts and don't frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn't be able to comprehend.
Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn't necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust....
and don't expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.”
- Rainer Maria Rilke, “Letters to a Young Poet”
When in doubt where to put your money, or what is the best direction to improve your temporal situation- always pay off debts first.
There’s a concept here that goes beyond the mere pecuniary, and into the spiritual-
Debt is a kind of bondage. It should be avoided whenever possible, and if one has fallen into it, their highest priority should be to free themselves from it.
Aggressively pay down on things you owe- be relentless, and, like prison, do your best to not go back.
