Thinking is optional
There is a profound idea that I was introduced to when I first began to meditate - we have the option of thinking, or not thinking, anytime we want to. Emotional suffering may start with an incident, but grows exponentially with our thoughts. Focus on your surroundings, your breathing, or different thoughts and visuals. Better yet, deal with whatever incident caused the thoughts in the first place. Mental control is a skill, and becomes easier with practice. Study meditation or yoga - learn methods of bringing yourself back to what is really happening right now in your direct vicinity.

Hi! My name is Sage Liskey, the founder of the Rad Cat Press. I grew up seeing a lot of the disturbing, toxic, and unhealthy sides of American culture, and decided I wanted to do something to change it. Since 2010 I have been writing books and zines (booklets) focused around uplifting lives and reimagining society, with a primary focus in mental health and empowerment. I believe a better world is possible, so I hope you feel inspired and a little more fulfilled from what you find here. Read on about my mission.
