The Tao of Jimmy Valentine
You must be able to request and expect the impossible of your self and others. This is the main principal of my way.THE ONLY WAY TO ACCOMPLISH THE SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE IS TO REQUEST THE UTTERLY RIDICULOUS Of yourself and others. Don't be afraid! To guide you I have given three precepts. The first precept is that of pain. Understand your pain. Pain,OUR PAIN MAKES US WHO WE ARE. WE NEED IT TO KEEP Everything in PERSPECTIVE...OUR PAIN TELLS US SOMETHING IS WRONG, AND LETS US KNOW WHAT IT IS...IT IS THEN THE TASK OF THE INDIVIDUAL TO LEARN AND ADAPT ACCORDINGLY.The second precept is the warrior's mind. Defeat your inner warrior to win in life.We each have a warrior within. That warrior is ready to fight life's battles.THE TRUE TEST OF A WARRIOR IS TO awaken and CONQUER THE WARRIOR WITHIN.....THERE ARE TIMES WHEN NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU BEAT SOMEONE DOWN NO LESSON IS LEARNED AND NO PURPOSE IS SERVED OTHER THAN TO VENT YOUR FRUSTRATIONS ON SOMEONE TOO STUPID TO LEARN ANYTHING FROM THEIR BEATING... A TRUE WARRIOR KNOWS HOW MUCH OF A BAD MOTHERFUCKER HE IS AND IS IN NO HURRY TO HAVE TO PROVE IT TO ANYONE BECAUSE HE HAS NOTHING TO PROVE...WHEN OTHERS RESORT TO VIOLENCE WORDS ARE HIS WEAPONS AND HE WINS EVERY TIME. Unless of course someone just absolutely must have their ass kicked. The third precept is recognizing and understanding our cyclic behavior.It's simple, if you do what you've always done then you will be what you have always been.IN ORDER TO MOVE FORWARD...WE MUST FIRST BREAK THE CYCLE...THIS BEING PERHAPS THE TRICKIEST OF ALL THE PRECEPTS...IT IS OUR INDIVIDUAL CYCLIC BEHAVIOR THAT EITHER PROPELS US FORWARD TO SUCCESS OR HOLDS US BACK TO WALLOW IN FAILURE...EACH OF US HAS A RESPONSIBILITY TO OUR SELVES, and to the world, TO BE THE BEST YOU THAT YOU CAN..BREAKING OUR PATTERN BASED BEHAVIOR IS SIMPLE...ABRUPT DISCONTINUATION OF EXISTING negative HABITS...IN ALL REALMS...PHYSICAL,MENTAL, AND EMOTIONAL...IN ORDER TO DO THIS ONE MUST HAVE HIS OR HER OWN PAIN IN PERSPECTIVE...THE SOURCE OF THE PAIN AND THE LESSONS LEARNED FROM IT...WHEN THE PAIN BECOMES A PARTICLE OF WISDOM IT CEASES TO HURT AND THUS FACILITATES THE WARRIOR within BEING ABLE TO CONQUER THE PHYSICAL REALM BY SPIRITUAL AND INTELLECTUAL MEANS AS OPPOSED TO BY FORCE AT WHICH POINT THE CYCLES ARE BROKEN AND THE INDIVIDUAL WILL evolve AND move towards being HAPPY.THE MAIN PRINCIPAL AND THREE PRECEPTS ARE SIMPLE AND MIX WELL WITH ANY RELIGION OR PHILOSOPHY.

Sky played an integral part in the sound and subject matter of this album. Pisces Rising is part of a secret government project. It is interlaced with backmasked messages telling the listener to quit their job grow out their hair and become a hippie. Pisces Rising was recorded during the commercial breaks of American Idol.
