Dixon’s Burning Man (and life) suggestion/prep list

Some of us are in high-gear getting ready for Burning Man, already driving and/or going over lists to make sure we aren’t forgetting anything important. I’m reminding myself of some things that are often overlooked, here and in life, that have nothing to do with objects.

To make sure that you get the most out of your journey, I should be ready mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Here’s my checklist:

——————-

Lose your expectations
- That vision in your head is likely wrong. This could be great, it might suck.  It won’t be the same as last time.

Participate deeply
- The more you put into this, the more you’ll get from it.

Be daring
- Try something you normally wouldn’t try. Go for it!

Talk to strangers
- The grown-ups were wrong about this. You’ll see.

Be in the moment
- The grass is really green right here. Enjoy it.

Bigger is not better
- The most magical things on the playa (and elsewhere) do not have spectacular flame effects nor epic bass.

Get some Me Time
- Minimize time spent trying to find/waiting on friends. Choose your own adventure.

Do not hesitate
- You’ll regret a missed opportunity. Don’t think twice.

Listen to your body
- It may be telling you it needs something. Rest? Water?

Be yourself
- Open up, be real. You are not what you wear.

Listen to your psyche
- How do you feel emotionally? Does your soul need something?

Let go
- Dance, play, fuck, sing, and laugh with wild abandon.

FIND YOUR BLISS
- And once you find it, follow it!

LOVE!

- Dixon
