what does it mean to be leader? what makes a leader?
Being a leader means holding personal morality above the influences of your piers. Being a leader, to me, isn’t just about knowing things or taking charge, it is about observing and realizing what is beneficial for you and who you surround yourself with. I think anyone realizes their potential when they become comfortable in situations no matter what they are, to try to take the best parts and shape your opinions about where you want to stand in society and with yourself. A leader is someone who is willing to understand the joys and importance in vitality of that which he wants to lead, or his/her “followers”. No matter what we think, society, friendship, leadership, accomplishment and understanding is always a task and pleasure that is best understood in the presence of our friends and those who honor our opinions. A leader is someone who honors the state of love within us all, and works towards its illumination.
I also believe that when a person seeks beauty in the cosmos and life, life in return guides them to the forever present, to the forever now. Which is fucking awesome if you give it a thought. but I would also love to know what keeps a spirit like your self motivated to find beauty instead of illusion in the jungle of our society?
I just have been working really hard to get back to my roots, which is surfing and fitness. I love music, but I think the amazing energy, health and spirituality that comes forth with a connection to the ocean and with my utmost health, that will be the best thing for my music when I put my focus back there again. As for integrating with the societal jungle, fitness is key, eating well is key, exploring passions and having compassion is key. Allowing myself to be young and passionate about my own pursuits has given me a lot of freedom lately instead of just being focused on how I can create a career that helps people. I have many years for that I think. I think its important to find something that you are in love with, and to let yourself fall in love with it everyday so that the jungle remains an illusion and life remains spiritual and amazing, that’s how we all will learn to thrive truly I think.
Go Cat! What made you start surfing competitvely again?
Just feeling really reconnected with the ocean. Been training a lot and getting back in shape, which has been really hard cause I gained a lot of weight. But I’m just working as hard as I can to get where I want to be so I can try to make the tour and just surf for a living.
Quantum entanglement. I believe we as a humans are starting to arrive into a revolution of consciousness through science and spirituality and finally finding peace, understanding and connection between the two, like as if all this time the two ideas of understanding the universe in the human brain worked on different frequencies and now they are finally riding the same wave.. Do you think "humans" can cope with the idea that science and spirituality can live together and understand each other?
AHHH! You understand!! Brilliant. I definitely think there will always be a level of human consciousness striving for and gaining a greater understanding of the cosmos and our own relationship with the dynamics of “fate and destiny.” I think as we unfold to the truths that be, the truths that be unfold to us, and the ultimate truth is that the universe wants us to be in a loving state, and it conveys this message in a real, intricate, surprising, and pristine way through beauty, strife and a provocation of our spirit to find its own individual dance within the entanglements of life. Humans trip me out, we are a weird breed I think. We do creepy things and dehumanize our own people on a grandiose scale. The relationship with the world of teeming life will depend on our seeking not to understand human nature, but nature as a whole. The more beauty we accept and find, the more beauty we attract and discover.
