Get your third eye open

Smoking, Meditating to this is actually uplifting

These sounds trip me out. I understand the grind is hard and we all need to come back to a place of solitude. Everyday take time out for you and become centered so that you can be functional. Keep grinding and shining. Burn out is a killer. Peace. Enjoy, T
