“I'm Konfuzed, I always thought I knew the concept of love,” Most of my issues always deal with love and me being in my feelings. Not to mention me being a dog sometimes. I can't speak for everyone but I can say that my actions contributed a lot to my karma. Being jealous and angry and controlling. There has been times where I looked in the mirror and hated the person I see. I talk to God a lot now. He's given me so much and I feel like I waste his gifts becuz of my impulsive personality.
“The world is full of negativity and I feel I play a part in it becuz of the choices I've made or mistakes,” I tend to accept the negative. I always see the good in people even when they don't see it. I love others more than myself at times. Everything u see on the surface does not reflect what's inside. This is my white flag. I surrender to life and all its blessings. I refuse to be petty and attention seeking. To know me is to love me. Good Bad UGLY! Sincerely, Konfuzed.”
I feel like for me…I’ve never been a person to judge anyone. Everyone has their own belief and they’re entitled to that. As long as you believe in something, some type of higher power, I don’t care if you call it Buddha, God, Allah, Jesus. As long as you believe in a higher power, that’s what matters. I’m not even a religious person, but I do believe in God, I pray every single night. Religious people tend to be overwhelming with their beliefs, and I just feel like people should believe in what they do without the need to bash others.

progress: "I think if your goal is to be better than you were, if you're competing only with yourself, it's a more realistic place to be."
success: "The idea of watering things down for a mainstream audience, I don't think it applies. People want things that are passionate, that are the best version they can be. And often the best version they can be is not for everybody."
submerging yourself in great art: "Going to museums and looking at great art can help you make better art. Reading great novels… Seeing a great movie… reading poetry… The more you can do to get out of the mode of competition, where you get out of what other people are doing and wanting to be better than them or be inspired by them. The only way to use the inspiration of other artists is if you submerge yourself in the greatest works of all time, which is a great thing to do. If you listen to the greatest songs ever made, that would be a better way to work through to find your own voice to matter today then listening to what's on the radio now and thinking, 'I want to compete with this.'"
heart vs. head: "It really is small steps and trying not to think too much. It's more emotion and heart work than head work. The head comes in after to look at what the heart has presented and to organize it. But the initial inspiration comes from a different place, and it's not the head, and it's not an intellectual activity."
