The ASMR Daily 59
Yesterday I was sitting in this very chair, having a day dream. The day dream took place in a world where people decided their own race, and it was a decision they were allowed to come to on their own. This specific freedom of choice allowed people to create their own tribe. I pictured myself running into a man that looked like Kimbo Slice, and upon introduction he called himself a Spruce Man. His name was _______ and his skin color was Spruce. He worked to propagate Spruce Culture.
When people identify as a certain culture, it speaks volumes about a country. Culture is a powerful thing, and in the United States, our cultural diversity is one of the things that makes us, Us. I love American Culture, because it’s what I identify with, but there are some huge problems with it. Personally, I feel most affected by the poor environment for small businesses. It’s only a poor environment because it is not taught in schools; not enough of the people that I meet want to open a business.
Most everyone who is looking to American Culture as an entrepreneur, is not finding the guidance they need. I believe opening a business is one of the most important things you can do as an American. Imagine a country where virtually everyone over 45 was part owner in a business. It would be how we demonstrate our ambition as leaders! But the business environment in America has become lopsided to promote corporate growth, instead of overall growth. Because for Overall growth, all one must do is fund education. Some people will use that education for evil, but the number evil-doers will never outweigh the number of good-footers – the people who use their education for good. The latter needs a louder collective voice, because the individuals on the other side are so outspoken!
Education within the inner cities of America is not the same as in the Suburbs. It’s not even close. I’ve met people in cities that can’t read. In America! There are people in America that can’t read, and I’ll tell you many of them, but not all of them, are black. Many of them are over 30 at the time of my writing this. I’ve had many friends that go on to teach at schools in inner cities, mostly people that went to my highschool.
Inner City schools are always hiring, yet there is so little money to hire with! This is all about to change. Today is day 1 of 14 where I will be bringing you Asmrtists of Color. I’m not going to ask any of these people if they consider themselves people of color, and I’m hoping they take it as a compliment. The more color one has in their skin, the less chance they have of dying from skin cancer. Aren’t we trying to cure cancer?
For today’s video, and for the second day in a row, I bring you YoungPrince ASMR. To say that I like this guy is an understatement, and so I am happy to also give him Day 1 of the 14 days we will be supporting the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Also, it should go without saying: Anyone who supports the Black Lives Matter movement, [probably] already knows that all lives matter.
Young Prince ASMR
I chose this video because, well, I think it put Young Price outside of his comfort zone to film this video, and being able to go outside of one’s comfort zone is very important.
If you are fighting alcoholism or drug addiction, then I welcome you to the Emotional Revolution! People that posses the wherewithal to make changes are going to be the leaders of the future. Change cannot be forced, and people must instead lead by example.
This morning I awoke to find that CNN reporter Omar Jimenez was arrested live on the air, because he is black. I also read that the 3rd precinct in Minneapolis has been [at least partially] burnt down. If you see a connection between those two events, I am not understanding of your thinking. They refuse to arrested the four officers that murdered George Floyd, yet they will randomly go around arresting black men due to the lesser crime of property destruction. The American Economic system is grand and nigh indestructible. We can afford property destruction, but we can not afford loss of life.
I will see you tomorrow!

Everyday Sobriety Advice
I am a recovered alcoholic/drug addict, but I am not a qualified addiction counselor. To help other alcoholics/addicts achieve sobriety, I have created the mantra’s below. Although I call them “steps,” I believe that all four mantra’s should be recited in concurrence.
When the urge to drink alcohol or use drugs comes upon you, I suggest reciting these four steps, and then implementing an activity to “kill time” until your urge to use drugs/alcohol is less intense. I suggest you use ASMR videos to “kill time”
Good luck, My Friend
Below are the steps of admittance required for using The ASMR.Community Sobriety Program [ACSP] successfully.
Step 1: “Sobriety is a choice, and it is up to me to make the right choice.”
Step 2: “Not everybody will be able to achieve sobriety, but that knowledge does not prevent my success regarding sobriety.”
Step 3: “The urge to imbibe (substances that I know will prevent my success) is finite. Sometimes the urge will exist, sometimes the urge will not exist.”
Step 4: “Sobriety is not the same for everyone. Success is.”
I believe the steps I listed above are a complete, non-exclusionary list of all mental admissions needed to achieve your goals regarding sobriety.
Everybody’s definition of sobriety is different, but everybody’s definition of success is the same.

For more daily support, check out Sober James on YouTube. He does a livestream every night at 21:00 Eastern Standard Time, and his live streams are a great place to receive support, gain motivation, and listen to encouragement in regard to addiction recovery. His program is based on the Twelve Steps.
SMART Recovery is another great program for individuals who are ready to tackle their addictions.
If you are seeking spiritual guidance, I highly encourage you to check out Tarot Reader ASMR. Her name is Amalia, and she is a kind-hearted individual with a skill for bringing us closer to ourselves.
Don’t underestimate the power of Yoga! Specifically Yoga With Adriene. My shoulder is broken, and so you can do some Yoga for me too. I really wish I could…
If you are looking or more information about ASMR, I’ve found the best place to learn about the subject is ASMR University. Their information is accurate [to the best of my knowledge], and plentiful. I mostly work with the application of ASMR, but there is a whole lot more to ASMR than using it to gain sobriety or fall asleep, including the history and the science of it.
