Our attempt to understand our journey through life can yield varying results and ideologies. Being the rational creatures that we are, we have the tendency to categorize the events in our lives as either positive or negative, according to our perception of the event, largely determined by whether or not it is parallel to our personal interests. Although this method might appear to be a useful means of categorization at a glance, it also hinders our ability to consider the possibility of destiny, therefore inadvertently relinquishing our ability to determine our fate, in accepting the belief that the odds are stacked against us. Only once we realize that we have the ability to create our own destiny and shape the world around us will it then begin to change.
It is for these aforementioned reasons that our perspective of life very well may be the single most influential factor on how we live our lives, as each and every action we take is dependent on a decision founded in relation to our view of the world in which we live.

One who May Ascend:
As I Am:
Let's see if I can explain
Without putting a knife in my brain
Or slicing my veins
Describing the pain
Not an actor, but I'm center stage
I'm in amazement that I'm in a maze
And a philosopher
At lost for words with all of your
Lines on the page
And I still don't know exactly what I've been trying to say
I've been trying to be enlightened
But my lights been out like getting hit by Mike Tyson
Enraged, I make plenty bad mistakes
As many as it takes
So call me what you want but really, Cassius Clay?
That's something that I just had to say
I want to be a free thinker no longer recognized as a slave
As far as I'm concerned, we're past the days
Of chaos, I sold my soul, so when waiting for it to pay off
Or at least make a small
Profit, they say money speaks for itself but it's small talk shit
Or it's all gossip
Life isn't like a box of malt chocolates
So mark it however y'all chalk it
Sometimes sometimes, sometimes, sometimes, in life I want to fast-forward it
Or feel like giving my opinion when nobody asked for it
But those are like buttholes; nobody asked for shit
Since we differ and collide in scope
We mostly don’t see eye to eye, but different kaleidoscopes
Preventing and life and hope
Virtues which last so fast you'll get whiplash
Then crash when opinions are dispatched
Mix-matched then switch back
When travelling the cosmos
In pitch black, distracted
Between the arena of lost souls and potholes
Also, led by false hopes slowly lowering our aim although
We do not own cross bows
So we fall short
But what if all those sharp broke
Pieces of our life create bigger pictures than art forms by Pablo Picasso?
Who knows how we got so skeptical?
Or how we could possibly expect to know?
You know? You know your life sucks when
You feel like life is a black hole and you've just been sucked in
Without any seconds to respond
And life is no video game you can't just respawn
To infinity and beyond
But back to what six degrees is to me
It could mean different things in between us mentally
Disturbing me with these uncertainties
Because who knows what common sense is?
Same with coincidences and consequences
All of this is relative
Tell me why we go through hell to live,
Make others suffer just for the hell of it,
And relish it?
To me, that's devilish
Don't just agree to live with these
Entities as meant to be
Life makes full circles, so draw parallels in it
Don't learn helplessness or selfishness
But develop an
Identity emitting energy
Of positivity, endlessly, then you'll know what it is to be
The 6th degree, from now...until Infinity…
This isn't for the faint of heart;
We make the art
For those who forsake the darkness
Enough to create a spark
