Neural Translation

A synthesis of experience. You are here. Your mind in melody with the surroundings.
The glimmering of light upon the surface of the sea, what a delight it is to be an observer of our own brain. This nucleus of connectivity and infinite imagination. NATURE in all of it’s beauty, within your brain.

The billions of synaptic fireworks casting far and wide. The treasures glimmering in your own night sky within the limits of your skull.
And you converge.

You translate those shimmers upon the endless sea that holds this globe in which we sail, and the imagination becomes reality.

It becomes the topic of conversation. What we see. What we hear. What we do.
We are convinced it is something beyond us, when it is ourselves and our beautiful imagination. The ability to peer into ourselves.

The very makeup of what we are. This glowing being. A multiverse of infinite display.
This is our neural experience. This is the treasure.
Life is a mindset.

: Greg

In response to watching Being There, a 1979 film, and sailing. These notes I write to myself and I’ve decided to share them with those who may be interested.

Greatest of work

Throughout the day, many of us have the opportunity to receive acts of greatness. They come in many forms, and I call them lily pads.
Walking down the sidewalk, there was a construction crew working with asphalt, cement, and trucks. As I walked by, I said “hi” to one of the crew members. The response was incredible, an act of greatness.
The man looked over, smiled and gave a big “hi”. What does a big “hi” look like? I think you probably know. It goes well beyond words and is full of genuine pleasure. It is a real gift when it can be fully received.
This man was working on the road in which we drive, in the middle of his work, carrying something in his arms, and he had the ability to smile big and share a great “hi”. This is the most humble gesture one can do. It is a gift that continues to give. The message I felt from him was, “Let the greatest of work be done with a smile.”
There is a ‘lily pad workforce’ all around us. We may be at the grocery store, at a restaurant, or simply walking down the street when an individual brings great joy to us. When you can cherish these events and the individuals involved, recognize them as “lily pad hotspots of genuine love”. When in need, imagine yourself jumping from those lily pads and give yourself the genuine love you deserve. It will serve you throughout your day.
Be like a frog, bask in the sun on those lily pads, and you will find more and more.

Connective Cadence

Connective Cadence
by Greg Albritton
One step in front of the other,
and the pulse of your energy connects with this spinning globe.
As you walk, you are floating in space.
Let the connection to Earth,
be your connection to all other beings.
Feel it in your toes, in your veins,
and in your heart.
When this is felt,
you are alive and well.
Walk, and connect with the world.

a note to the self

a stream of consciousness. video the screen recording below.

Use your illogical

There is no explanation for what you are doing. What you are feeling. Why you are where you are.

Why do you love mint chocolate chip more than almond butter?

Why do you walk faster when you have nothing to do?

Why do you second guess decisions when you will never know the exact future outcome?

These are all gifts.

Unimaginable possibilities that have no certain truth.

Platforms of potential that could never be characterized by a meaning, a value, a place, a thing. The only thing that could be of this, is nothing. Nothing at all that can be defined in your nearest dictionary.

Be illogical.

Dare to believe that there is a thing that you cannot understand. That there is a state of mind that has not a foundation or a purpose resting upon it, other than to be misinterpreted…To be disillusioned by design.

It’s ok to not know the answer.

Matter of fact, it’s better than pretending you know.

Use your illogical.

– Greg

Fight without an audience

No one is listening. No one cares. No eyes on you. No definition of despair.

What do you do?

What do you love?

Why do you hesitate, when no one is looking from above?

You’re bullish. You’re mad. You’re a fortunate being, that has gone bad.

Your audience is your objective. Your passion is what you look like in plaid.

Take off your clothes.

Get even more mad.



Slow down fast.

Create what you love, without wearing a mask.

There is not a prize. Not a piece of history.

Be real to your vision, and let things come naturally.

Fight without an audience in mind.

Mind what you do, but push forward without any eyes on your prize.


stop your spinning wheels

stop your spinning wheels from Greg Albritton on Vimeo.

stop your spinning wheels.
let your mind walk freely.

the great paradox of time;

the slower you go,
the more you see.

it’s ok to wonder.
it’s ok to dream.

stop spinning your wheels,
and take a walk with me.

i wrote these lines down in the past few months while traveling. to me, this video provides a certain medicine for personal space and thought.

this film can be experienced as not only an oasis of relaxation, but also an opportunity for one to look around and reflect upon the speed at which they are physically and psychologically moving.

time is not fungible. it cannot be traded for another time. slowing your time down permits not only a meditative state, but an opportunity to see things in a new light. respect your vision by maintaining a rhythm that brings new epiphanies from moments.

Maybe, just maybe

Maybe, just maybe/

we all have a beautiful voice/

an impossibly charismatic, charming, inner-core/

so powerful and rich, the very thought of it can give you the feeling of warm pins and needles/

when something moves your psychological self in to a physical piece of art/


Maybe, it is just about accepting/

your core/

your richness/

your energy/
