Perhaps The Big Nothing is The Plains Of Silence…
So what’s in the Plains Of Silence? Once you reach it, what then? It’s just like that saying by Alan Watts:
Therefore the only peace you’ll find in the wasteland is the peace you bring with you. And it better be something that you’ve been carrying.
P.S., lately I’ve been telling a few Runners how The Matrix wasn’t a movie, it was a documentary. I started saying the same about Mad Max ever since the gas line hack. Listen at 1:13 🤯
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.
Planet Earth Are you there? Are you listening? Are you prepared? I see mother-ship connection Deeper into spiritual realms in a dimension Leavin’ some battalion, descending from Orion Travel ’til gone, hear the bust then go To the next level brought by bass and treble dig with your shovel Like a fossil find me subterranean, hard like a pebble In a microscope we still dope, coat me with your resin Analyze, surprise! secret weapon’s always hidden I’m fittin’ to decompress, yes Ride to the surface, think your best is good I’m blowin’ heat up off my chest Don’t need no bulletproof vest, drop the tec I’m selectin’ my infinite power claim and reign through intellect Fly on a jumbo jet to Tibet, meet my queen in Benin All about liftin’ dreams in a tropical scene Do my pimp walk leanin’ to the side The sky is so wide, I’m feelin’ alright, let it ride , yo [Chorus] Yo we travel through radio waves, roll and misbehave We won’t stop until we get done Jah let me bless One Sit and meditate, let visions formulate Like the Nazarite Samson Jah let me bless One We pray and generate power while cowards get devoured You bakin’ deep in my dark sun Jah let me bless One One, One, Jah Jah let me bless One, One, One, One Dicin’ ice is the nicest Type or size of the Nikes Sights like, samurai souls Man what the price of your life is I rock for father lifers Cat’s wit gats, deadly snipers Little children ridin’ they bicycles Guerrilla fightas to the rhyme writers Graff writers and macro sighters Cat’s holdin’ skunk deep off in the blunt with gingivitis Ignite yo lighter we takin’ you higher, fire yo flame We won’t retire no Higher then I’d be a liar We walk a live wire baggy atire Passin’ out flyers tryin’ to get you to come to the gig , just to admire The rhyme recital it’s vital, ill-percussion is bustin’ K-G up on the AHH, 1-2, get busy cousin with the While we buggin’ and zonin’ until Six in the mornin’ we will Rock and shock elevate non-stop, yo [Chorus] Interplanetary vocabulary, peep hypothetical Notions in an ocean, I’m coastin’ on every decibel Amp though, stay low, beneath your radar sensory Prepositional phrases can jump me to infinity I spin eternally, non-physically, invisibly True reality is one that naked eye cannot see In this galaxy I’m Pluto, tiny but I’m rudo Flippin’ you up on your back, I attack like Judo Break it down to the atom my long division is Vision of precision of my triple fly blast a decision that The Lord Maketh, taketh away and sew the will So I chill, crack my seventh seal, thankin’ you for real ‘Cause you feel We With purpose Shinin’ in a light We proceed to ignite the mic to shine bright, yo [Chorus]
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! ✌️

Traveling through a wasteland. It’s been days since you seen another human being. Going through rugged terrain and harsh weather. Finally you see something that stands out of the norm in nature. A painting on a rock. You admire the colors and details then as you look further you see an even bigger painting that takes up the side of a cliff. “What is this?” You ask yourself…
I had this vision in my minds eye and also in dreams. I imagine that this is what Alexandra David-Néel saw when she journeyed into Tibet. I don’t believe in coincidences anymore. After I had this vision, I looked up pictures from Alexandra David-Néel’s journey to try to match what I saw. It was then that I stumbled upon Nicolas Roerich and his paintings.
It’s exactly what I pictured in my vision. From my experience I can only imagine what Nicholas Roerich saw, as well as Alexandra David-Néel. They must have witnessed magic and sorcery that has thought to have been long gone. Alexandra David-Néel even stated that she seen an object in a distance moving at a significant rate. When she looked into her looking glass she saw a man in monk robes bouncing like a ball, covering great distances. 🤯 And let’s not get started about what other travelers seen in the sky back then and today in Tibet…
If you have a Vajra bell, ring it! Call your deity by mantra! Just because you believe you cleansed yourself doesn’t mean the karma within you hasn’t moved and hid somewhere else inside of your body! If you remember your dreams, it was a message. If you have visions, you have the sight. Stay connected with them, remember deities help and guide you to get where you want/need to be. Vajrayana believes that you can reach enlightenment within a single life time. With that being said the deities may speed things up for you. Take that with caution ⚠️ and be prepared that the reality of spiritual awakening can come off as an nightmare, but at the end it’s actually enlightening.
I am continuing with my journey and following my visions. I am not saying that this is the way and only way. I am not saying I am a saint nor a Buddha. What I am saying is that consider looking within yourself for answers. Your soul knows what’s best for your shell. For me Vajrayana happened to follow along with my own beliefs that I had since a child, before I even knew what spirituality was. It’s as if the bell sounds I hear in my visions are from Vajra bells and the Akashic Records. Remember, if you don’t believe in anything, nothing bad nor good will happen to you. You will become stagnant and rely on the physical for satisfaction and pleasure. You’re worth more than that. There is more to life than your average routine. Know that. ✌️ Blessings to all 📿🙏📿
If you need to make a trek into the wasteland, be prepared. Last thing you need is to be scavenging around like Max in The Road Warrior.
Being a road warrior like Max is one thing. Anyone can drive a vehicle. But a real driver is also a mechanic, a cook, navigator and good company; As stated in this article. Luckily there’s a website dedicated to Overlanding which gives insights for people who seek solitude behind the wheel. They provide you a free checklist for your journey and give good reviews on essential gear.
Your journey may be a quest to reach that Plains Of Silence, however make it an interesting one. Remember to have fun along the way. Enjoy the pure beauties this physical world has to offer to us. It’s a big world out there. Perhaps you need to go to places that make you feel small so that you realize how small your problems really are. ✌️
I’ve been feeling like Max lately
But also, at times I feel like Wez
People like Max and Wez are survivors. Physical and mental strength is what you need to last in the wasteland. And to think, at a time what separated those two type of people was a simple police badge.
Last week I took a trek into the wasteland. It’s been while since I been there. I was left with more questions than answers. But perhaps that’s what it is all about. Perhaps we have all the answers, we’re just asking the wrong questions.
E’S Club Sports was a company that focused on speciality parts aimed at the Civic (AT & EF) as well as the AE86. They’re known for their muffler and coilovers: Eikoh! After the debut of the EG6, Eikoh! parts where no longer made. The company ended up becoming a car maintenance shop.
Imagine, the creator and members of E’S Club Sports probably never would have imaged their parts to pop off like it did. Little would they know that it would end up creating a sensation back then, and a feeling of nostalgia when reflected back on present day. You have OG Kanjozoku’s who opt for their parts and swear by them.
Though the company quit racing parts sales and racing activities about 20+ years ago I bet you they still own some tuner cars with Eikoh! parts on them. It’s good to hear that they’re still around and in business. Something we should keep in mind within ourselves. If you are passionate about something, stay in that mindset one way or another. Stay in the game yo! Be around the things you love and never give up on your dreams. ✌️
