Roy Phillips  Love over fear

Just remember there may not always be a way out but there is always a way through. This too shall pass my friends. So accept this undeniable entanglement. And start sifting your way toward clarity. Figured I give you guys a break and keep it simple. #briefinboxers #somethingshortandsweetfromaguytallandsour PS the most beautiful woman I know was born today. I love you grandma. It was so great to talk to you. And I can't wait to see you next month! Goodnight guys. I love you! #love #loveoverfear #lightattheendofthetunnel #carryon #christmasstory #jose #hoseB

You thrash violently in every direction. Trying desperately to escape the prison that is your current state. In the midst of your struggle something softly suggests a course of acceptance. You consciously relinquish your will to the wisdom of the current. And in this moment you no longer need strive. Simply embrace your new captain and behold countless gifts set before you until your river's end.

Ladies and gentlemen introducing my baby brother Axl Rose Phillips! I am a firm believer that you can learn life lessons anywhere from anything. And sometimes I think that animals are better teachers than people. This little guy is my best friend. He has taught me so much I'm the last month. Patience by destroying everything and shitting everywhere. How to be happy and have fun in every moment even if all you have is a stick. And love, this guy gets it. He doesn't judge he just loves! So all you pet owners take care of your little teachers. And if you are thinking about getting a pet, go for it! Go to your local shelter and save a life. They might just save yours in return. #happy #memorialday #weekend #alllifeissacred #puppy #dog #brother #pet #friend #bestfriend #bff #iusedtosleepnexttoabeautifulwoman #whathappenedtome #bowwowwowyippeeyoyippeegay

You know the safety briefing before you take off. You know, that one that absolutely no one listens to. "Yeah I get it my seat floats. I just want to go down that damn yellow slide!" Well you should listen to it. Because besides the obvious life saving tips they have some hidden ones too. i.e. They tell you when putting on the oxygen masks to secure yours first before putting on someone else's . That's the perfect metaphor for my rant today. Sometimes in our quest to help others we neglect to take care of ourselves. M.A. martyrs anonymous. lol. But I'm writing this to tell you if you're no good to yourself; you're no good to anyone else. (pretty catchy might have to trademark that) You can't fully be of service if your own needs aren't met. So let's take care of ourselves so we can better take care of others. Me I am treating myself to a much needed va-k. So what are you gonna do for yourself you awesome, rad, beautiful person who totally deserves it? Love, Roy. #love #loveoverfear #friends #family #summer #vacation #lax #airplane #flying #fly #martyr #advice #self-help #positive #pma #treatyoself #takecareofyourself #prettysurethatsnothowyouuseasemicolonjustwantedtofinallyuseone #super #hashtag

Recently read an article on the dramatic increase in suicide rates. And I don't like it bit I totally get it. It's hard. And sometimes you just want to throw in the towel. I feel that way all the time. But I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel. You just feel this way because your pain level, emotional or physical, has exceeded your ability to cope with it. So you just need to either find a healthy way to lessen the pain or establish a new coping mechanism to mitigate it. Now when your feeling the way you are right now its incredibly difficult to do much of anything but it is possible. And there is help available if you want it. You know in the movies when the guy is hanging off the cliff and the other guy says take my hand. Well this is that movie. Myself and others who care about you are that hand. I know the fear of judgement is stopping you from sharing your feelings but you gotta get past that fear and choose love. Love for yourself so you can stay alive. Ultimately the choice is yours. And I will respect your decision. But I love you and we should just get off this cliff and hang out until we die of natural causes. Because who knows what's after this. What do you say my friend?

There seems to be a lot of crazy shit going on right now. (when is there not, right?) And it is real easy to say "What the fuck is wrong with this world and the nutjobs who live in it?" But hold on Alice, before you go too far down that rabbit hole. I offer you a challenge. To see the beauty in this life even in the darkest of days. You may have to go through some shit. You may have to dig. But once you find it, it makes everything worth while. So yeah there are people bombing other people. But there are also people running 26 mile marathons then tragedy strikes and they keep running to the nearest hospital to donate blood and save lives. And there are earthquakes and floods etc. but there is also beauty like what I saw on my hike today always on display just waiting to be viewed. Negativity is quicksand. Whatever you resist persists. So don't take the easy road and bum yourself out. Focus on the good, the great, the truly beautiful and spend what little time you have on this rock smiling :) And if you want a more concise and powerful summary of what I just blabbered about google "Patton Oswalt" ;) Love, Roy. #pattonsaiditbetter #whatyouseeisuptoyou #whatyouresistpersists #hiking #hike #beautiful #beauty #loveoverfear #love

Happy chocolate bunny day! Or happy zombie jeebus day! Or whatever you do or don't celebrate, happy that to you my friend :) I am not feeling very poetic today. But I think there is something important to be said. But one thing I think that we all can agree on is that one word is synonymous with this holiday, and that's RESURRECTION. I just want you to know that no matter how lifeless you feel, no matter how dead inside, you can come back! Every second of everyday is your Easter. Your chance to break free of the dead past and step into the LIFE your living in the present. Love, Roy #dontcallitacomeback #resurrection #easter #jesusismyhomeboy #live #love #renacer #saysitbetter

Did you miss me!? I missed you! It has come to my attention that a few of you peeps miss my silly little pics and attempts at words of wisdom. So I am pondering coming out of retirement. In today's installment I give you the beauty that is Forest Park in Portland Oregon. And I leave you with this. When are we (myself included) going to wake up and see this world for what it really is? A temporary playground which it truly is. And not this permanent prison we think and act like it is. The bell has rung time for recess! I love you guys! #recessyoucheesybro #mothernatureisasexybitch #portland #stumptown #ripcity #hurryup #heartist #isabouttogoon #loveoverfear #returnoftheculprit?

"May your search through nature lead you to yourself" Today I went on the most BEAUTIFUL hike with my family! I love being out in nature because it helps me to connect with what's real. No offense to the religious but I decided a while back that from here on out on Sundays, (or any day for that matter) I was gonna go experience "God& #34; . Not just listen to someone tell me what they think I should know about "God& #34; . Go be with and experience your higher power whatever the name and whatever the activity it doesn't matter. What matters is the feeling. Connect to your source and bring out that amazing person I know you are inside! Love, Roy #god #source #higherpower #universe #spirituality #family #lover #loveoverfear #hiking #rules #mothernatureisasexybitch

As I fall out of my dream. With my head in my hands, I ask you "why this way?" All the while my thoughts tightening their grip around my throat. I plummet with a dying to feel. Then impact, I hit the water so hard the pain causes me to lose direction. I know I am near the surface. But I don't know which way is up. I can't see the guiding light that promises a return to breath. I struggle. I kick. And in the process make such a din that I don't hear you softly suggest "let go." Because you know the air in my lungs will lift me to freedom in perfect time. I now realize I am not chasing a belief but rather trying to unlock a knowing. -Drowning To Life by: Roy Phillips I said it before and I'll say it again, you are not alone. If you are going through hell keep going! The darkest night comes just before the dawn. You are worth the fight! Keep going!

"Develop an attitude of gratitude." While making over a $120 in under six minutes is rad. Knowing that so many people love and support me is way cooler in my book. Thank you to everyone who came out last night. Even though you made me nervous as hell. I almost pulled an 8mile and threw up ma's spaghetti and thought I was gonna choke on stage in the middle of my rap battle. lol. But seriously seeing you all there really warmed my heart. I am thankful to have such caring, loving and supportive people in my life. And I am especially thankful that my grandma was so cool about letting me tell jokes about her being a pothead and writing for High Times magazine. lol. What are you guys thankful for?

Come see A at B so you can C. Haha It's on you to figure out which one is which. I'm getting a lot of questions about the deets on my next show. Wow! did I just say deets? Well here you go guys. It's at the Comedy Store on Saturday at 5:30 in the main room. Tickets are sold inside at the door. I'm trying to practice what I excessively preach. I'm gonna face my fear and choose love. I hope you guys join me. (Double meaning) Love, Roy #standup #comedy #jokes #funny #atleastgonnatrytobe #comedystore #hollywood #love #loveoverfear #shamelessselfpromotion
