As I mentioned before. Who would of thought that creating PVT Runners would create an art form? I believe one of the reasons it happened that way was because I spoke about the unspeakable: Being in the car world/culture and having no ego. A topic inside other peoples heads that they knew of, yet never expressed it. It’s the expression that’s in our philosophy. It’s not racing, it’s RUNNING. It seems as soon as I expressed it, others caught on and started doing the same. Just as before PVT Runners, no one had the word “Runner” in their “team names” etc.
With that being said, a PVT RUNNER is a way life and a state of being. The Running Temple is a deity in a sense (as well as a monk). It is the emanation of the PVT Runners teachings and philosophy. It holds the roots of the origin and where it is going today. Only a few know the esoteric teachings. For that they are secret for a reason…
TANTRA is one way to learn it. The other ways involve dark rites and rituals that will scare away the common mind (ever heard of BDD?). Some people are givers in this world, and they need to know their limits, because the receivers don’t have any limits. If you want to learn anything in general, you do research right? Never ask to be spoon fed, it doesn’t teach you anything. Remember, sometimes you gotta look within to find answers. Peace.
This took the words out my mouth and gave me clarity that I am not alone when it comes to feeling and experiencing this.
And the part where he talks about the less importance of materialism
Is exactly how I feel bout the car culture world. I love it and respect it, but my view is different now from what others have. I am not on a quest to have a real life Gran Turismo garage, nor do I have goals to build a perfect motor & car. Because after that, then what? How many times are you going to tear down a car? How many times you going to build motor?
Remember PVT Running? The whole point is to run, you can be in any vehicle and in any environment. Just run. When people ask what is Zen, the monks say “when hungry eat, when tired sleep.” You might be thinking “wtf? We all do that!” Oh no you don’t. When you’re hungry you think of all sort of things, and when you sleep you have all sorts of dreams.

“Zumbi was known for weaving a spiritual approach into hip-hop, reflected in his searching, mystical lyrics, and in the title of Zion I’s debut album Mind Over Matter, which The Source nominated for Independent Album of the Year.”
All your albums were soundtracks for my spiritual journey. First time I saw you live was at Sacramento State University back in 2006 and by the way they were free events. You did yearly concerts there and I attended every one of them. I recall watching you come on stage for the first time. You took off your shoes before getting on stage. I get it, you wanted to be grounded with the stage to send the message to us listeners. Thank you for your passion that you spread through Hip Hop. You will live on forever. ✌️📿🙏📿
Hey. How you doing? I’m alright too. Y’all have a good week? Shit homie, this week marked an end of an era for me. But remember, in order to build new things, old things must be torn down. Just as with Vajrayana Buddhism, one of the main actions is to turn anything that’s against you into your ally. Turn negative energy into positive just as Padmasambhava turned Bon demons into protectors of the Dharma. When I had this thought I had my moment of revelation and truth. It’s time for a new beginning.
Who would of thought that making PVT Runners would create an art form. And like all art, some will get inspired and even BITE. But that’s the whole point of it. There’s that quote by Picasso: “good artist borrow, great artist steal.” Look at all the philosophers and artists in history. People are still trying to decipher their teachings and paintings. PVT Runners ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT AURA; that’s spiritualism. So it seems that some people pick and choose what they like from PVT but not as a whole. They leave out the spiritual part of it. And that’s fine. But to fully grasp PVT you must understand it as a whole, not what you choose to like about it.
Keep being who you are. Change is a choice for some. I will never try to change anyone. I will never attack nor talk down on someone for their choices they make towards PVT. As long as you’re not causing harm to PVT we are good. I’m too old for dealing with shit talkers. People like that will always exist, don’t acknowledge them. Life is too beautiful to think other wise. If you become aware of how powerful your thoughts really are, you would never think of anything negative again. Alrighty then. Ima stay in my hermitage and continue to observe and watch. Using the streets as my microscope and telescope! Haha! ✌️
Live like you’re already dead. Haunt the streets! – PVT Runner
Live like you don’t exist. Bless the streets. – Run The Monk
