Inspiration Comes From Within + Special Fucking Announcement + My Face!

Searching

The journey around my home country has provided some serious inspiration. That’s what I set out to do in the first place and the things/situations/people I have come across have exceeded my expectations. There is something to be learned from every experience and sitting back to reflect on them reveals new insights and lessons every time.

The themes that will be covered in the book about this expedition are clear and the rest of the trip is going to be devoted to developing them and keeping clear eyes that can catch when they appear.

There is so much to say about America in 2015 and I’ll leave the politics, problems, and frustrations for those who find them fascinating. What I want is pure fire, uncontaminated by extreme opinion or hopeless dreams.

The three main sources of stimulation that have kept me going the most are as follows:

Nature

Again and again I will repeat that the best teacher on Earth is all around you. She will keep giving as long as you approach her with respect and a clear mind.

Sol Duc Falls

The mountains provide you with strength and endurance, as well as clean air to aide your thinking.

I have to emphasize respect because the other night when I was camping out in the dunes, a lightening storm rolled in. For much of the night I feared for my life because there is no shelter in White Sands and my shitty little tent was no match for the high winds.

White Sands Evening

Looks nice now, just wait until the sun goes down and the temperature drops.

And in the morning I was greeted with one of the most spectacular sunrises you could imagine. The change in the atmosphere from a cold, violent, fierce monster to a gorgeous, calming, warm provider of life reminded me of women.

White Sands Sunrise

Being disciplined makes the good things even better.

White Sands Morning

The plants survived the night so why was I worried? Resilience.

The desert has a special way to make you feel alive. I went down to one of the lowest places on the planet, over 250 feet below sea-level and gathered salt that was left by a once magnificent body of water. I physically felt the moisture leaving my body in the 125 degree heat.

Bad Water Death Valley

All that’s left of a once huge body of water.

It was the opposite of the rejuvenating colors and fresh air of one of the most pure lakes on the planet.

Wizard Island

Crater Lake Water

Yes I dove in, and it was fucking cold. But worth it to sink into that blue.

 

The different environments and landscapes all cause you to think in different ways and reflect on things in their own way. Each one has an individual spirit that can be tapped into and help expand your mind and give power. Learn how to seek the spirit of each place and find guidance, energy, and vision.

Art

During the days in the cities I usually seek out a museum or some galleries to spend time in and enjoy. The treasures that can be found in them are fantastic to find and are mostly unexpected.

One of the most, if not thee most incredible pieces of art I have ever come across was found in the decaying city of Detroit.

Diego Rivera painted a mural on the walls of the Detroit Institute of Art in 1933–they heyday of manufacture and the rise of the automobile.

It is a work of pure genius and makes you think about the nature of industry, mans place on the planet, American history, the danger/benefits of science, the origin of life, and much more.

I spent hours staring at the panels and making connections between the lines. The greatest thing about artistic masterpieces is that they force you to learn about the world or concepts in a completely original way. There is no way to capture certain nuances of a culture or theme in the way that art can. Writing and film can only convey so much, when the message of the artist is expressed in an effective way, true understanding takes place at a much deeper level. Rivera managed to do this with his most incredible work that stands in Detroit.

Its not something that can be put into words very well but it had a stronger impact on me than the Sistine Chapel. The mural is especially incredible because of the current state of Detroit. Everything the mural captured about the prospering city has been destroyed. It stands alone as the cities crown jewel among the ruins.

Its something to see for yourself.

People

I’m beginning to think the meaning of life has something to do with relationships.

The guys I have met up with on the trip so far have been really incredible. Every single one has been someone I respect and have been extremely glad to meet.

Whether we combed towns looking for girls and laughing our asses off at drunk locals, got super drunk and passed out on the floor of a tiny apartment, winged successfully and pulled girls, tried to convince bisexual girls to call their friends for threesomes, unknowingly flirted with transvestites, got so high and laughed so hard that the girls got scared, ripped around mountain corners at top speed in a 500 horsepower sportscar, ate mushrooms and watched the moon and clouds put on a show for us, slept in the dirt, got a taxi ride from an alien from Jupiter, and much more…each time has been a blast and I couldn’t ask for more high quality, fun loving guys to meet up with.

And not to mention the girls, they always provide a different energy, sex, and fun conversation–but its been nothing like the strong bonds that have been made through meeting like-minded dudes.

And I can’t even begin to talk about how incredible it was to sit down and talk to two of my favorite modern writers. They were both extremely hospitable, fun to talk to, and inspiring in their own right.

Make sure you watch the interview with Jack Donovan here, and the interview with Rollo Tomassi here.

Where the Inspiration Comes From

All three of the things I just mentioned can be attained by anybody. You can go outside right now and find some birds to watch, head out to your local museum, or chat up a stranger on the street. But none of that is going to mean anything if you don’t use those experiences to make you a stronger person.

Its all real and its up to you to make the best of it. I haven’t watched TV in more than 10 years and I’m glad I turned that fake shit off. Too many times have I been out and observed people in the same exact places I am but not getting anything out of it. The motivation has to come from inside you. These environments, creations, and people are there to be enjoyed and learn from, but you have to work in order to pull out the benefits.

To be a man means to do work. And even though this trip has been incredible and enjoyable, every day I feel like I am putting in work to help it make me a stronger person. When I return home the fire is going to be burning so bright that I won’t have a choice but to produce something from it. So stay tuned.

And Now For the Special Announcement!

As many of you know, I have been in collaboration with Christian McQueen throughout the past year. The last time I went to visit in LA he told me about an idea he had that involved gathering together some respected writers and holding a seminar in Vegas.

Of course that’s a great idea and of course I would want to be a part of it. Especially after being on this trip and meeting so many awesome guys.

So here it is, the 1st annual A Man in Demand Seminar. Its going to be Christian McQueen, Tanner Guzy of masculine-style.com, myself, and a very special guest speaker.

I’m excited, a little bit nervous, and rigorously preparing for the event. My topics will be ‘Finding Adventure in the Modern World’ and ‘What Game Really Is’. And you can expect some tricks up my sleeve as well.

The event is going to be held on the Strip in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 12th and will promise to be entertaining, enjoyable, and extremely inspirational.

Learn more and buy tickets here.

And on that note, since I’ve been putting myself out there more and more and am very willing to make public appearances, I don’t feel like its necessary to hide my face any more.

Such a fuckin’ rascal:

About Goldmund

Goldmund grew up a wild-child and was constantly being disciplined. Using ancient rituals and game, he broke free from the shackles of his mind and the norms of this backwards society. He frequents bars in Brooklyn, mountains in Mexico, and retreats to the desert. His passions are nature and women.

  1. Goldmund now that you´ve been almost all over America it is time for you to come to Europe.
    I hope your next big journey will actually be in Europe!
    Keep the good work up.

  2. Recently went out with Goldmund. I wanted to write this so you guys know he’s the real deal. Emails from dudes that he posts probably won’t have the same effect as coming from a regular reader. I was supposed to meet Goldmund in Austin but dude came to Dallas. We meet up in the lobby and went to get a drink. We chopped it up about game a little, what got us in the game and why we keep at it. We saw some fucking turtle race and almost stole some guys girl right off his arm. She may have been Pakistani but she was born in the UK and her accent would have sounded so amazing coming out of her mouth had she gotten fucked. Ughh! Long story short, we meet two broads at a bar that was hosting an old school game night. We walk up and just start playing Mario with them. I’m getting my ass toasted in the game by giant ass mushrooms and random ass fireballs. I look up and goldmund has isolated her Mexican friend. I say a small prayer thanking the lord haha and start working on her friend. A pretty cute blond broad. I start kicking her ass in Mario cart, teasing her a little bit while my hands on her knee. She turns towards me with her legs (boom I’m golden). She keeps asking if her friend is ok. I reassure her that she is and continue to talk to her and escalate. We start moving toward the exit and meet up with Goldmund and her friend. And goldmund spits the gotdamn best line of the night “this guy has a great view at his place, let’s go check it out’.. long story short, I bring her up the the room, show her the view. The panties drop and I start banging her on the balcony and realize that my room door isnt even closed. But by then I’m like fuck it haha. Anyway, I bust all over her brown nipples and blonde hair. I wake up the next day and she’s gone. I don’t even remember this broads name haha..good times.. any way goldmund is a chill ass dude. I highly recommend hanging out with him regardless of whether you’re trying to game or not. But good pussy will always be good pussy haha

    • ha, its always interesting to hear the other side of the story from a wing.

      I’m going to drop a post about that night at some point because I got an interview with that Mexican broad after we made love like maniacs on your rug.

      Good times brother.
