Cold Plunge into the Depths of Reality

A couple weeks ago I set my personal record for time spent in the 46 degree cold plunge at the Banya at 12 minutes.

3 months ago my personal record was 2 minutes.

Last week I doubled my high to 24 minutes.

I am not my body.

I am not my emotions.

I am not my mind.

I am not my fear response.

I am not anything you can see.

I am sourced from something far deeper.


1) “The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill. I will not be out-worked, period. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me, you might be all of those things you got it on me in nine categories. But if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things: You’re getting off first, or I’m going to die. It’s really that simple, right?”

– Will Smith

2) “Hey, Fab, I’mma kill you”
Lyrics coming at you at supersonic speed, (JJ Fad)
Uh, sama lamaa duma lamaa you assuming I’m a human
What I gotta do to get it through to you I’m superhuman
Innovative and I’m made of rubber
So that anything you saying ricocheting off of me and it’ll glue to you
I’m never stating, more than never demonstrating
How to give a motherfuckin’ audience a feeling like it’s levitating
Never fading, and I know that the haters are forever waiting
For the day that they can say I fell off, they’d be celebrating
Cause I know the way to get ’em motivated
I make elevating music, you make elevator music”
– Eminem

3) “You are not on earth to make things happen. You are not on earth to spread the love. You are not on earth to make it a better place or to learn acceptance of the things you cannot change. You are not on earth to find your soul mate or your purpose. You are not on earth to put the needs of others before your own. And you are most certainly not on earth to suffer, pay penance, be tested, or judged.

Did I leave anything out?

You are on earth because in your loftiest state of being, perched high above the wonderment, at the pinnacle of your glory, you wondered what it would be like, even fleetingly, to believe in limits.

You sage,
The Universe

And when you can grasp this, from within the illusions, you will also grasp how unlimited you truly are. (And we’ll probably never hear the end of it…)”

4) “No, I don’t ever give up. I’d have to be dead or completely incapacitated” – Elon Musk

If you Wake Up, Clean Up and Show Up, you will be powerful beyond measure.
