And I Havn't Even Cracked It Open Yet

I bought this book - "Think Big And Kick Ass" - a few weeks ago and now that I've finished Atlas Shrugged I thought now was a timely opportunity to get started on it.

I went to read it this evening though and Trump's grilling face on the front cover inspired/intimidated/FORCED me to spend the last two hours on Accounting revision for university instead!

Inspiring ei? And I havn't even cracked it open yet! ;)

The End!

I finished reading Atlas Shrugged at 2am last night, which for me, is saying something. Towards the end it was so gripping, so unstoppable, that it drew me effortlessly past my bedtime of 10pm.

It was a great adventure, with interesting and unforgettable themes. I'm sure it will continue to effect me for the rest of my days.

Men who are Gods of creation, love, and life.
Men who have values, integrity and truth as their foundations.

A world of traders, trading value for value, and striving for a life or greater and greater experience, and greater and greater joy.

It's magic really :)

Have a Coke.

I'm a big advocate of drinking water. A really big advocate. It makes me tingle with joy and the feel of smooth as silk water trickling down my aching throat.

But the faster paced my days, and the more alert I need to be, the more I appreciate a nice refreshing Coke in the morning. People may say it's bad and full and chemicals and what not, but a Diet Coke a day seems to keep me sharp. Thanks Coke ;)

Mauritians Can Climb.

To further prove that Mauritians are the best climbers there are, here's a picture of me and fellow Mauritian, Vincent Manera, outside the Central Park Tower which we had just conquered as part of today's Step Up For MS.

Nothing soothes the soul like physical activity, and to boot - the view at the top was awe inspiring. From the distant hills to Perth's nearby islands, the whole of this world was laid at our feet.

Like Vinnie said in reflection of Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead - It was all by the efforts of our brave young selves, and the minds and efforts and the people who mastered the forces of nature to build the thing in the first place.

My girlfriend showed me this great site a couple of days ago and it's really something special. It's such a quick and easy way to get music for your mood, and the quality of music they serve is spectacular.

Thanks Stereomood!

Singing of Love

And every day at breakfast, they come singing of their love -

How many dudes you know, got the thrills to go,
have cats that meow like thiis?
Not many, if any.

The Golden Boys

I've never professed to being a Photoshop expert, or in this case a Paint expert - so please forgive the image.

These fine young gentleman you see before you, are a brotherhood of friends recently coined as The Golden Boys. I'm not sure where the title came from, but I heard on the weekend for the first time, and I've been told it's due the 'wholesome' activities we undertake together.

From rock climbing, to kite flying, to coffee dates, to discussing big ideas - we're young men, each determined to be the best men we can be in our own ways.

I really appreciate their company, their stories, their energy and their ideals - and for 3 of them, I even appreciate their swinging dance moves! ;)

I look forward to seeing how each of us grows and where we all end up. Who knows, the troupe may even grow as times goes by.

May the bro-mance continue!

How to talk to audiences in seminars.

I just did the aforementioned presentation for Communications In Business 100. It turns out the key is to brief your key audience members as to the desired responses before you get up ;)

On a slightly more serious note - it went really well. Much better than last week's presentation for Entrepreneurship 300. That presentation wasn't quite a failure, but more of a lesson to infuse more passion and excitement into presentations.

Lesson learnt.


In a couple of hours I'm giving a speech on corporate social responsibility as part of my university course. I'm planning to draw some inspiration from the famous speeches of Russell Crowe and Francisco d'Anconia. ;)

Forge an Empire.

Some people say that there's a lack of inspiring people in their lives.
If that's the case, inspiration may only be a bookstore away.

With information as easily available as it is today - there's no limit to what we can do, if we decide to do it.

I've decided to learn all I can about business, new enterprise, accounting and business management. Eventually I will pair with a marketing genius and a technical genius, and together we will forge an empire.

Ode to Her

She's perfect in every way.

Placed on this earth to frolic, flutter and fury -
she delights, involves and tests everyone she meets.

A fountain of love,
with boundless curiosity -
a living work of art to behold.

She'll challenge your thoughts,
she'll clean out your ideals to the essentials.

It was to worship, balance and be firm for her,
that the gentleman was evolved.

It was because of her and for her, that I evolve.

To delight in our difference,
to celebrate in our lives.

The three of us - eager, young and engaged.
The old woman across the way - eager, young (at heart) and engaged.
The children and families watching - eager, young and engaged.

With every swoop, dip, and soaring of that kite,
our hearts and minds flew with it.

The world was being enjoyed :)

Sunday Mornings

Sunday mornings were made for Count Basie, cats in laps, and epic rockclimbing adventures. ;)

Explosions in the Sky

Today my friend gave me an awesome birthday present. It was the record "The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place" by Explosions in the Sky - and it's magnificent.

It's such an uplifting, emotion provoking and inspiring album. I can see it nurturing many great thoughts and ideas, and setting the backdrop to many wonderful creations.

I am alive. I am Godlike. I create, everyday. This life is mine.

Mount Franklin

I just had a drink from my bottle of Mount Franklin.
I must say - it was basically like making love under a waterfall,
so sensual. So pure.

Sharing the Climb

I went climbing with a new friend last night.
I've been climbing with him for about a month and I've never enjoyed climbing so much!

The thrill of the climb, the challenge -
they're amazing.

But the wonder at sharing that joy,
with someone who appreciates striving and achievement just as much as you -
it's wonderful.

Norwegian Inspiration

I went to a study date with my group partner for Entepreneurship 300 yesterday. He's from Norway and the more I think on it, the more impressed I am with their house and their lifestyle.

The house

Everything is meticulously purposeful.

Considering it's a hosue of 5 guys, it's really very clean.

There's at least 2 palm trees in every room,
there's also a desk, a bed, and a wardrobe.

In the kitchen, there's neat stacks of staples on ever shelf -
tuna, beans, eggs, protein powder, juice, cereal, fruit,
everything a growing man needs.

There's neat tables, chairs and sofas,
just where you need them.

Looking into the backyard, there's a well made, home built tropical bar,
with even a blackboard to post what's available when they have parties.
In true entrepreneurial spirit there's a money box too, so you can pay for what you take.

Then a little further on into the yard,
you'll see a proud well made, home built sign pronouncing - "Gold's Gym".
And under it is a collection of any and all the gym equipment you could want to build a Godlike physique.

The lifestyle
Forget about the surfing, entrepreneurial parties, exercise and socialising -
they had me at the word 'sailing'.

All in all it was pretty inspiring.
Here's to the life ahead!

Sexy Control

There's nothing as ugly as a victim.


There's nothing as sexy as someone in control -
someone who's in control of their choices,
someone who owns their decisions,
and someone who relishes in life's opportunities for growth.

"If you don't grow, you perish"(1).
With this gift of life, I intend to grow.
"Born with wings"(2)? I intend to fly.

Best Moments

I only spend at most - 30 seconds with these guys each day,
yet they give some of the best moments of my morning :)

Thanks Jessie!


This short post is largely inspired I think, by "Stranger than fiction" which I just watched, by an actual novel I flicked through while browsing through Oxford Street Books in Leederville today - "Ethics", a book discussing the ideas of Aristotle, and then also by "Atlas Shrugged".


The book I was flicking through today talked about this universal idea of Nature and God and brought them together as being basically the same thing described by two different models.

In the same way as we describe ourselves as having a mind and body.

All these things can be reconciled if we agree that we are as we are,
we live in the world in which we live and we can do as we please.

So it pleases me to be happy,
and I'm happier doing things which are congruent with my values,
which does not include lazing about watching TV.

- and I openly acknowledge (but should probably remember more, day to day) that my values aren't by any means absolute in their righteousness.

And so I've decided that regardless of what my inertia may suggest, tomorrow morning -
at 5.30am I will get up, turn off my alarm, wash my face and brush my teeth,
and then with the zeal of a clown on a tiny bike - I'll go off to the gym with a smile.
And later that day, I'll spend copious amounts of time, enjoying studying.

Because being physically healthy and fit,
looking good according to the standards I adhere to,
and living the adventure of adventurous production,
make me joyous. More honestly joyous than I've ever been before.

And in doing so I create self worth and honor which I can then trade to make me even happier.
I can trade it in the form of money for goods,
or I can trade it in the form of the value of a good character, which I can trade for good society.

I'm Coming!

It's amazing to think it's been 10 years since I first listened to this, and I still love it just as much.

Today this means to me a lot more than it did then.

It means knowing who your true self is, and knowing that day by day, action by action, thought by thought, you're becoming a truer form of yourself. There are no limits or caps on our dreams, and "what we dream - we can achieve".

*Raises glass*

Here's to being all powerful genies ;)

Perth oh Perth!

I love Sartorially Inclined, but I wish we stocked the stuff he features here in Perth. If only I was bold enough to order online. But what if it doesn't fit!? <.> eeek!

Time to scour Perth for some equivalents ;)


It's amazing what joy such a simple thing can give you.

I was up late last night beavering away on a special order analysis for The Melbourne Hotel, as part of my commerce course at Curtin University - and I was happy. Really purely happy.

Like the Asian Christian's shirt said - An idle mind is the Devil's workshop! And so an active mind, with purpose, is heavenly ;)

Float on!


I had a blood test this morning and so I had to fast.
It's amazing the difference you feel when you haven't had breakfast.

I'm so glad I'm lucky enough to eat like a God everyday :)

Food, exercise, society, purpose and action.

I can't wait.

It makes my mouth water and my soul jump for joy.
And the best part is, the planning and the memories afterwards are just as valuable as the time we'll be away.

I love travelling.

A precarious situation.

There's something truly special going on here,
there's something truly special going around.

I see it in all the girls' eyes,
and i see it in the way all the boys are moving.

I think the sun knows what I mean,
coming in and out of the spotlight,
Who doesn't want some spotlight?

The clouds must be in on it too,
because I met a bird who almost told me.

Knowing the man I'll be,
feeling the man I'll be,


Knowing the man I am,
and feeling the man I am.

The man I'll be,
the man I am -

knows that choosing your actions,
is a heavy weight to bear,
then it makes you strong,
and sets you free.

Free to love.
Free to manufacture dreams, outside of dreams.

Music That Moves

Having all my old music on shuffle, it's hard to believe anyone could move, tied up in so many limiting lyrics and mantras. "I need you", "they can't", "without you I'm nothing", "you're my all", "I'm so down".

So instead, I switched on some uplifting, joyous, life-celebrating melodies of Mike Oldfield.

Ahh, the bliss.

I feel it's true that we're a product of the environment we place ourselves in.
More and more each day, I see more clearly the man I want to be.
More and more each day, I'm building that environment.
And by being in that process, I feel more alive than ever.
Happier than ever.

Joy, the world, life, everything - it's all mine, all in my hands.

Making Dreams.

Marc just went to a place beyond words, beyond images, beyond feelings, beyond emptiness - to a place where he already existed.

- A place where the world was his through the power in his magic ball of string.
- & He was climbing trees, exploring tunnels, cataloging people and making dreams.

Push or Pull

Running last night, a question came to me - "Can you have an internal locus of control, and still believe in this benevolent and loving God? And does it matter?

It seems to me that the churches which advertise this God often teach things like -

- "It's okay, pray and God will help us",
- "Okay, these are the rules, and it's so because God tells us so",
- "Just live your life well and then God will decide how and when to reward you".

...that is, it's all about putting the power in some external place. These all seem like very 'external locus of control' things to say.

I'd say I have more of an internal locus of control.
I also believe in a God.

I believe everything in existence are all Gods, or Demi-gods, and that the sum of all our parts, is a larger God, a whole God.

Which reminds me of a quote -

"Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate,
but that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear
our presence automatically liberates others."

- unknown source.

Coming together

The more I think, the more I think these aren't two mutually exclusive ideas. After all, we'd only follow this external God if we believe in what he's teaching, and we'd only create our internal God through what we believe.

And then from there, regardless of whether the God is inside or outside, it steers us and guides us to where we're going.

I guess the only difference is how we feel about that process.

Life ei? Full of choice and options. Let's have some fun :)

Wonderful World.

I woke up this morning, calmly ate my breakfast, and then enjoyed some tunes from Norah Jones' Stay With Me album.

Looking around the room and out the window into the world...
Feeling into the world...

... I was impressed.

Though it's been said 'many times in many ways' - It's a wonderful world.

And I'm sure you need no more explanation than that.

I was preparing coffee with a friend when it came -
the most terrific, relieving storm I can remember;
Glorious, Beautiful, Untameable nature - at her best.

When we got to the airport for our coffee date,
we looked out onto the tarmac from the viewing platform,
and the scene flew. The music swallowed us,
and the actors were performing at their absolute best.

Thunder which made your heart melt,
and your blood smile.

Lighting which shone through your eyes,
and lit up your soul.

Rain pounding on glass and through onto skin,
screaming at you that you're alive.

Running out into her wonderful embrace,
answering those calls,
my soul might have cried.




And now at home once more,
every second status on Facebook is of flooding,
damage, and stress.

But oh for the beauty.
Oh for the glory.

Oh for life.

It's times like this a good camera would come in handy,
but here she is, giving her final bow for the evening.

What do you want?

All feeling is manufactured. Will you accept any old prefabricated feelings that life has in stock? Or will you work hard, save up, and order that super-amazing custom feeling you've been wanting since you were 4?

Don't know what you'd want a feeling for?
Don't know what feeling you'd want?

There's no right or wrong.
There's no good or bad. Ever.

There's just what we choose.


Will Choice be your curse or the greatest gift of this life?

What do you choose?

Wednesday, March 10, 2010


Recently, I'm seeing feminine beauty everywhere.

All around me - this bright, free moving and chaotic energy.
All around me - this delicate gracefulness, this softness.

It's so refreshing.

I think to myself about lust,
I think of that desire to drown myself in that energy.
I think of the impossibility of that desire ever being enough in my life.
I realise more and more that that desire is just a natural expression of something greater.

From books I've read and discussions I've had,
I'm think more and more that this attraction stems from my desire to be the complete opposite of that;

a desire to be clear of mind, to be strong in mind and in body,
a desire to be focused and balanced, to be "immovable in a sea of chaos";
not immovable through stubbornness or unknowing,
but immovable from a path of my choosing, "a destiny of my choosing".

Like I've said many times, I don't believe in a right or wrong in life,
only what we want and what we don't want.

So without knowing what you want, how can you be anything at all?
So I believe in choosing something - anything!
Then sticking to it.

Something that gives you joy.
Something that makes you happy.
Something, that is, that you want.

And so having chosen those wants,
having chosen that path,
I can now march steadily towards that end
- That end which can never end -

My life is clearer.
I am stronger,
& the world is more appealing, for it.

Laziness has been the source of my unhappiness.
Through commanding my life, and not being a slave to it, I know happiness.

Through commanding my life, I know love.
Love for myself, love for my lover, love for my world and for my friends.

For what true love is yielding to "illness", "bad luck", "jealously" or some aimless need to "possess"?

My love, like me, like my joy,
is strong, bold and confident.
It it unending.

And it makes me smile :)

And all that being said and done, I still appreciate that good old feminine energy just the same ;)

Battle Report

First engagement was about 48 hours ago with a few skirmishes at the far outposts.

Our enemy has gained considerable ground over the last 24 hours and are currently suffering heavy losses at the city walls.

In addition to our resident warriors (The Leukocytes) we have enlisted some new HERO recruits - Codeine Phosphate, Pseudoepherine Hydrochloride, Chlorpheniramine Maleate and Atropa Belladonna. We expect a total retreat within the next 48 hours, but for now our citizens can be at ease once more, The Citadel of Papainius SHALL NOT FALL!

I am a God.

The most glorious day of my life was the day that I realised I was an all powerful genie. Sure, I have my wrist cuffs just like any other genie, but feeling that power flowing through me for the first time; for the first time, being conscious of it - I must say it was a spectacular first flight.

... & I haven't been back down since ;).

Choice, and the power to create action - are wonderful things.

I am wonderful.
I am divine.
I am a God.

And I wonder at how many people will understand.
But I understand.

Hello Cloud

There's a happy little cloud that's waving at me with all the enthusiasm he can gather. And he's asking me something.

I'm not sure what it is, but I'm smiling and nodding in return.

"Hello cloud,
hello cloud,
it really is lovely to meet you ^^".

The Perfect Woman

When I think of my perfect woman, I see her clear as day.

She's beautiful and she's a fountain of love.

When she walks into a room her glow softens things, and somehow makes everything more perfect.

...Even her passions and her rages flow with a natural beauty. Her energies never end; she floats like a breeze, or like a gale - however the fancy takes her.

A constant challenge for the men in her life, she feeds their strength.

She is beauty. & I see her in my bed each morning :)

Narcissus Marc

Now this is a little more narcissistic than usual but I'm really happy so I simply must post this!

For the last 3 months I've been really getting into bodybuilding. Nothing too extreme, I just wanted to get from my skinny 70kg or so, to a beach ready, cut 85kg.

I just weighed myself for the first time this year and I'm way up to 77.5kg!! ^^

Only 12.5kg to go until I'm 90kg, so I'll be able to cut down to a nice healthy, ripped 85kg by mid year.
It's nice to work so hard everyday and really see results from your efforts. *smile*

Far more joy.

The sight of this van outside work earlier brought me far more joy that is reasonable.

Magical Transportation

I just opened my laptop and in the black screen, this is the reflection I saw. For an instant I was filled with wonder, at how I'd been transported to this magical Amsterdam scene!

Later this year, I'll actually be there ;)

Stop Thinking.

I went for a ride on my newly repaired bicylce yesterday and I thought about how fragile the contraption is; this contraption which I was relying on to support me while I sped along at over 20kmph.

What if the wheels fall off? What if my pedals fall off? What the frame snaps and I go flying to my peril!?

Then I remember that I've been happily riding bicycles for years and years, and it's always carried me along.

"Stop thinking about it so much and just ride it".

It made me think that perhaps it's the same with life. Sometimes I can get so caught up in theories and philosophies surrounding life that I forget to live.

"Stop thinking about it so much and just live".


Friday, February 5, 2010

Take it all.

In all my travels I've never found a decent 'why',
as to why anything should ever be any particular way.
When you search the 'what's' on every corner,
you only find what is.

What you see.
What you feel.
What you want.

I see a world brimming with everything.
I feel everything, and more of it is created everyday.

I want it all.

Oh, The Joy!

Exercise, good company, a challenge, and a summit to reach.

Oh how I love rock climbing! ^.^

It reminds me of the delight in setting your eyes on a prize, and then grabbing it in your sweaty, exhausted hands. Oh, the joy!

Wednesday, January 20, 2010


I just found these online and I simply had to share my complete and utter joy. I'm blown away. I'm excited. In fact I can't remember having been this excited in a long, long time.

I think I'm in LOVE! ^^

Really Nice.

I've often commented that modern day, high quality photographs don't really sit well with me. They make me a little... uncomfortable.

How can a photograph look richer, more vivid, and more detailed than reality itself? It feels a little...'sacrilegious'.

But what is, is - i guess.

The point is, I've mentioned this to many people, and I've drawn many blank faces. Last night however, for the first time, someone understood and felt the same way.

It's really nice, to share familiar feelings :)

They recommended me "Simulacra and Simulation" by Jean Baudrillard.

Time and Space

Jessie's away on a girl's summer getaway,
and I'm here at home- musing and pondering.
To be honest it's nice to have some time apart.

Don't get me wrong, I love the girl dearly.

But this week without her is great chance to remember to love myself as well -
to be my own person, to live my own adventures,
and to follow my own dreams.

Living with someone can get very.. comfortable.
And its a danger to lose ones self in that softness and sameness.

I definately think we'll have separate wings of the house one day,
with communal spaces in between, where we can meet for dates and what not.

I'm enjoying having time, and space.
I'm enjoying it very much :)

Makes me smile

Keeping busy certainly has many merits.

A visit to the parents.
A visit to the gym.
And some good old 'costume building & painting' -

Makes me smile ;)

The countryside certainly has its appeals.


He walked into the room and like a curtain of mist, the icy melancholy fell once more.
This place was no place for a prince.

The boy who had everything

Things have always gone my way.
Abd they always will.

Because I decided that whatever way things go, is the way things were meant to go for me. And that whatever it is I want in the world, is there for me if I want it.

And I know that the world is absolutely perfect. And that everything around me is absolutely wonderful and there for me to feel, taste and see.

The desert priest said - "If a man loses everything he owns does he truly lose his worth, or is it the beginning of a new and brighter birth!?".

And to be fair, I'd say it's the latter.

Goodbye forced investment and a job I don't like. Hello time for me, time for life, and time to grow. *smile*

But while that works itself out - hello happy world ;)

A Guide To Life

And if we are but threads in this great tapestry then what are we to do?

Be as colourful and magnificent sir, as you can or ever could - possibly be.

But what is it to be magnificent? By what measure would you judge magnificence?

Well by the capacity of the magnificent or the not-so-magnificent to drop the jaws of those who behold it my dear.

Wouldn't that depend entirely on the beholder?

Yes but are we not all of the same 'stuff'? Shouldn't we all react and act in the world just like any other person? Are we not all human?

We are all human but we are all conditioned by the environment in which we have grown. One who loves bicycles now may have hated them if she was born in some distant land, where only murderers and thieves rode bicycles. Where one person may look upon their local pizza boy as the image of all magnificence, for another those feelings may only rise for the lonely cod who swims off the shore.

So are we to be the cod or the pizza boy? To what end shall we aspire?

Aspire to nothing. You are already magnificent.

But what if I already aspire? Am I still magnificent then?

Yes darling.


The world is your pallette, your dressing room, your library and your stage. Paint your set and costumes with the whims which guide you, choose the story which chooses you, and act my dear, just act.
