Word of the Day: Mantras

Sometimes it can be really hard to figure out mantras. I mean, what the heck does “Just be” mean?

Welcome to our guide on the meaning of mantras. Finally, you can relax a little when trying to relax. Just be.


10 Proven Power Mantras, Including Secret Inner Teachings
  1. Just be. Or not be. We're overpopulated.
  2. Be still. Don't think. Don't ask questions. You're annoying. We hate that! Go away!
  3. Be you.  Relax, okay? No need to strain yourself getting all caught up you true nature.. You're being tracked. You're in control. Trust us.
  4. Be one. Although even that's one too many. Not enough jobs and stuff.
  5. It's all inside you. Keep it there. Our landfills are full, our water is polluted. Our crops are contaminated, our system is broken. Buy American. Support Walmart. Support low wages. Fight wars. Lose your legs. Somebody will give you a dollar on the street, so stop worrying. Support Murica.
  6. Share the love, but not the wealth.
  7. Radical Self Care. Wear purple. Smell expensive. By a huge TV.
  8. Expand Your Mind. Actually, expand the empire, destroy the heathen.
  9. Peace, baby, peace. We keep going over this. It's in the contrails and the fluoride. C'mon man. You already KNOW this.
  10. It is what it is. A little too much self assertion is going on here. Calm down. This is the greatest country in the world. You're a lucky bastard. Go fix a bridge. The one you're living under will be just fine. And talk to a preacher. God loves you and has a plan for your life - called prosperity.
Important note: if you decide to practice these mantras, practice them silently. Their power will be revealed to you. To be honest, a few of them suck. But that's part of the mystery, part of what you need to discover. This is a money back guarantee... except that you didn't pay me any money.

Important note: if you delete this after reading it, you must be very cohesive. That's not the same as duct tape, but it's almost as good!
