Stop rushing…what’s your hurry? Stop being fearful…that’s how they want you to be. Stop being paranoid…there really is no “they”. Stop proselytizing…yours is not better than mine. Stop watching television…create something cool instead. Stop blaming…it’s no ones fault but your own. Stop taking drugs…reality is much more interesting. Stop buying things you don’t need…start needing things you can’t buy. Stop trading time for money…start giving your time for joy. Stop hating your job…start enjoying your life. Stop building things in the desert…start hiking there instead. Stop making up excuses…start waking up your mind. Stop saying you’re too old…start living for today. Stop dragging round your baggage…start shedding needless things. Stop wasting water…plant food instead. Stop buying from the big box…that local business needs your help. Stop being critical…tell her/him that you love her/him instead. Stop obsessing over social media…go see a local band. Stop wishing…start doing. Stop hoping…search for proof. Stop saying that you can’t…find a YouTube video to show you how you can. Stop taking the escalator…use the stairs. Stop circling for a parking spot…walk that hundred feet instead. Stop tailgating…relax and wave as you go past. Stop living in the past…start living in the now. Stop listening to the radio…search for sounds you don’t yet know.

Stop drinking soda…appreciate water once again. Stop reading pointless magazines…models never really look that good. Stop using Photoshop…remember yourself as you truly were. Stop seeing science as the enemy…it’s the reason you’re still alive. Stop seeing science as the answer…it’s always just a theory. Stop searching for god…start finding yourself. Stop seeing… start feeling…Stop questioning everything…start questioning everything. Stop staring at the stars…start looking at the earth. Stop telling us what to do…we can now think for ourselves.
