Attitude IS Everything
So, someone I know very well has a horrible attitude. He is so down on himself and refuses to DECIDE to change his mind. It's all about decisions, right? Making decisions and choosing to be who you are. OH MY GAWD- does it frustate me so! "I can't" - (I really don't like that word) you mean YOU WON'T. He is so dramatic with happiness you know he's gotta be coming from a negative side. Total swing. Anyways, why I'm venting here is because it made me realize that attitude is everything. How hard is it to just decide that "shit, you know, I'm sick of myself and my tudes and Damnit-it's my fault that I'm this way. You know, I don't want to be this anymore.....maybe what she's saying makes sense and I don't have to be a miserable person; it's okay that I'm not talking just to hear myself" ...and so on. Believing in ourselves.. well, thats easier said then done I guess.
But, this realization has been great for me- it's a lesson that attitude is everything and maybe I should take my own advice. I DON'T HAVE TO be the tyrant. I DON'T HAVE TO be the victim of everyone and my enviroment. I choose what I want in my life, and that is why I bury myself in knowledge and experience- to have a greater understanding and not be a victim to my own limited choices. I only know what I know. I want to know and experience more than my daily emotions. In one moment, I can choose to stop being frustrated!
So I find the concept that people are reflections of ourselves very interesting. What we see in them is actually an aspect of us. Hmmm....very outrageous and humbling. I have an co-worker whos very loving, yet quick to judge, demanding, quick to anger, and hilarious. If I find this concept as a truth, well shit- My 1st intinct..theres no way I'm that demanding nor judgemental. But hmmm... he has been a reflection that has been most humbling, most trying, and most challenging. I feel very blessed to have this person in my life, he's quite a personality! It gives me the initiative to change! My patience has been tried with him and when he reacts, I'm happy to say I don't react to the emotion, and have kept a light heart. Sometimes, I'll speak my truth and then drop it. This is just something I felt like saying, because I have been aware of it and reflecting upon it. I have learned so much about myself being with him day in and day out. I've noticed the change in my attitude and now, he's leaving in a month or so. Thank you Eu-bean!(nickname I call him) So be it!
Scrutiny is Faithful to Irony
Abstract renderings play center
stage I purposely obscure,
infesting serenity on monstrous suns,
baptizing inspired adjectives
stretched tastefully over ebony tarp,
star dust sewn stitch by stitch.
My insanity a manifest before a
deluge of stirred echoes coexists.
In great awe powering planetary
orchestrated horizons, its
net dedicated in orderly
fashion, calling forth
the poster child of Orion
limbs clothed by supreme
rank of hierarchy presiding
over watchful mother's
mourning calloused poison,
his flesh precisly slayed,
his recognition spurred a casket.
Draws homeland sickness near
as a venture worth dying for.
The spirits sneak at a high price,
its entertainer dreadfully erect
I decide to rise in depthless streams,
cooling heat like a beacon to ice,
the amethyst bludgeon sacrificing night.
Will I wait now?
despite honest testimony.
Wind's lactating embrace,
lacerating pinnacle torrents
more endearing than the next,
every perspective accounted for.
"This painting includes animals that are known for mating for life. This couple in the foreground is being married and the animals in the painting reflect their values and mutual connection to each other. Eagles represent clarity and wisdom, also high ideals and a messenger of prayer. The wolves represent family, communication, respect, humility and love. These are virtues that often accompany the hearts and minds of those about to be married. The smoke from the fire represents the purification and letting go of their romantic lives previous, as well, blessings for their lives in the future."
"This painting was inspired by a sense of hope. The mountains represent future challenges, the rocks with faces and the wolf show guidance. The lower eagle within the rocks represent a connection to the Creator, being his foundation of beliefs. The four feathers in his hair represent honoring of the four directions. The eagle above is symbolic of prayers being carried. The bear on the top right and wolf on the top left signify healing, introspection, humility, respect and communication as being major influences."
"Within the native culture are many people that have been chosen to carry wisdom and sacred teachings. Many of which are referred to as "Medicine Men" or "Shamans." These people carry a great deal of responsibility within the culture. They help people identify problems on many different levels, from the ordinary to the extraordinary. This painting displays a Shaman who is praying and calling upon positive influences, that he can be of better assistance to those whom seek his guidance. The wolves represent humility, love, communication and earth wisdom. The eagle, a carrier and messenger of prayer. The chief in the sky, represents spiritual guidance. These people keep the circle of faith and spirituality strong among the people, represented by the dreamcatcher. Within the rocks at the lower left are roots as well as the profiles of a man and woman that represent the "Grandmothers and Grandfathers" of the culture. It is a consistent teaching in the native culture to honor our relations as well as have respect for our elders. It's also reminded that we need to remember our cultural roots to be more aware of our overall personal identity."
"The bear represents introspection and healing. Often our dreams reflect the inner workings of our subconscious minds, through various images and scenarios. I put these symbols together to reflect the importance of looking within for answers through introspection and self-analysis of our dreams. The bear is also considered a protector by many during the dreamtime, this image reflects healing, courage and strength."
"I like this painting personally because of what it represents to me. Trailblazing is something I've admired about people throughout my life. I was told once when I was little to walk "my own" road in life. These words really hit home with me and I've found them to be words for me to live by. This watercolor painting talks about awakening new discoveries and exploring new experiences. Taking on the role of leadership, instead of a follower, is the theme of this work."
"This painting speaks of sharing knowledge with children. In our culture values and teachings are passed on by oral tradition, from our elders. This painting also speaks of parenting and some of the challenges involved in providing protection and guidance to our children. The warrior is speaking to his child of legends and stories, as well as teachings that he's received through their culture. The face profiles in the earth they stand on reflect our grandmothers, grandfathers, our ancestry. The lightning is a symbol of truth and knowledge. Personally, this painting reflects a belief that our future is carried in the eyes and hearts of our children."
"In the culture it's traditional to seek wisdom and knowledge from our elders. This painting reflects that belief and practice. Respecting our elders is a beneficial and important value. Elders are valuable and highly respected members of the native community. These beliefs are still practiced today. I also wanted to present the idea that both wisdom and strength can come from either the warrior or the chief, these qualities are "shared" in communication and time spent between teacher and student."
"Often our traditional elders will speak of places that are sacred in nature. These places are often referred to as places of power and vision. People long ago in the culture would seek out these places and make preparations to attune themselves to the natural environment. Sometimes they would have visions of a spirit animal or spirit guardian, etc. They believed these visions to be sacred messages from the Creator or Grandfathers and Grandmothers. This painting is of such a place where peace, harmony and a sense of self can be experienced. Today, this belief is still held in high regard and practiced often as a form of self realization or "soul searching."
I've had this simple phrase stuck pleasantly in my head for weeks now.
Tonight I decided that perhaps I shouldn't be so greedy with it.
So now I'm putting it in yours.
Once upon a time, a seeker of truth found himself a highly respected spiritual teacher, and asked to be initiated into the state of self-realization. "Oh Guru, please tell me the secret of life, by knowing which one is freed from all bondage."
The teacher looked at this seeker and saw that his container was not yet able to contain the unadulterated Truth that breaks one free. The seeker needed to be purified by the lessons inherent in living an austere, surrendered life of service and contemplation. Nevertheless, the teacher spoke, "Tat Tvam Asi, Thou art That."
The seeker settled down to hear the rest of the lecture, but the master fell silent, as though that was all he had to say. The eagerness on this seeker's face told the master that he was genuine and passionate in his quest. The master said, "I will accept you as a disciple. Go and work in my fields for twelve years, and then come back to me. I will give you the secret knowledge at that time."
The disciple worked hard for twelve long years. During the many hours spent toiling in the fields, inner understandings and glimpses of the nature of life were revealed inside himself. At the end of his assignment, he again came before the guru. "Oh Guru, I have fulfilled your command and worked in the field for twelve years. Please enlighten me. What is the secret of life, by knowing which one is free from all bondage?"
The guru now saw before him a shining light, a purified vessel ready to accept and hold the Truth. He looked into the disciple's eyes and spoke, "Tat Tvam Asi, Thou art That."
Immediately, the disciple understood these words at a level deeper than ordinary knowledge. With "Thou art That" throbbing in every particle of his being, he ascended to the spiritual state of the masters.
Boredom at work makes you think of a various things when your mind wanders during down time. Today my thoughts ponder a conversation I had with one of the backroom guys on Monday. The discussion included a short time on Murphys Law. This guy, Mike, truly believes in Murphys Law and how it applies to life. In fact, I believe his exact words were, "If you always live your life by Murphys Law, you'll always be on top of things." It was an interesting choice of words.
Being a spiritual person in the study of metaphysics, I immediately mentally scoffed at the statement while thinking, "You create your reality. So things can only go wrong if you believe they will go wrong."
After a few days, I've run that phrase through my head again during some down time and come to realize that Murphys Law actually states something like, "If it can go wrong, it will go wrong." And that's basically what spirituality says. If you believe something can go wrong, then it probably will go wrong. It's a simple belief system.
Perhaps it was not entirely correct of me to scoff at this phrase, even if it was only mentally. Murphy's Law is a very real and accurate belief system. However, I believe several people have misinterpreted the phrase. Most people believe that you should come up with everything that could possibly go wrong with anything you do, and then simply be prepared for it. This kind of mentality plays in with a motivational speaker named Tolly Burkan. Mr. Burkan has been responsible for teaching other motivational speakers such as Tony Robbins. His phrase simply states that "One should be prepared for the worst, but expect the best."
Now there are those who truly expect the best while being ready for the worst, but there are those who listen to Murphy's Law believing that whatever can go wrong will truly go wrong. In other words, they're prepared for the worst and expect the worst. It's this kind of negative thinking that creates a whole class of people that say things like "Why does this always happen to me?" or "I knew it was too good to be true" or "I expected this to happen." Well, according to metaphysics and quantum physics, your thoughts create. So if you're expecting something to go wrong, then don't be surprised or angry when it DOES go wrong.
If thoughts create, then why not simply think things like "I expect nothing but the best results" or other more positive statements? If you really want to think spiritually, you might consider thinking things such as "I expect the results that will be most beneficial to my growth." This is referring not to what the world would always perceive as the best results but instead referring to what will help you on a deeper level. Not everyone should expect to win the lottery because maybe it would not be beneficial to them to become rich snobs. On the other hand, some might do only good things with the money and help others out. This is, of course, only one example.
Tying all of this together, it seems that it's already a universal wisdom that what you believe can happen, will happen. That being said, have you ever pondered everything that you believe is impossible?
The system is tantalizing/
Imbalancing the brain alighnment/
Got you fantasizing/
We got the Cure to heal the state your minds in/
Realizing as we explore what they tell us is just a fallacy/
They�ve built themselves up off of us/
Become a casualty and fight their wars/
Theres no analogy between our reality and you and yours/
In actuality your doom soon come Babylon/
We see thru your corrupt and crooked system/
I hope your listening!/
They got us all trapped in a maze/
Stuck like a bird in a cage/
Pushing a 9-5 we modern day slaves/
Underprivileged, scorned and restricted/
Innocent children follow the snake � learns its traits and become vicious/
The systems kidnapping our children�s minds and their laughing/
It�s their evil faction that got us stressed � there�s no relaxing/
And now were masking our True Selves trippin and packing heat like some madmen/
Killing our own kind/
Some find it hard to imagine but its reality and its happening!/
Wheres the reaction against Babylon?/
How long must we sleep before we all wake up and realize its real life that were dealing with/
And not a fantasy, mirage or fallacy/
Many snakes come camouflaged with venomous beliefs/
They speak with forked tongue full of lies and deceit/
The people get misguided � too many sleep on these streets/
The economy is falling and the few that are big ballin aren�t solving any problems/
And more than often � a Mother loses a child that fell victim to drug problems/
Or someone shot em before they got their calling back to the essence/
Lets bring this hiphop movement back to the lessons/
So we can lessen the stress and the murder rate, the crime rate and this global depression/
Come on yall lets elevate and take it Higher!!
All through history, you have had conflict between the knowledge-keepers and those hungry for power. That still happens today. So as soon as the floods receded, the conflicts started again. That is why the people who are now considered Native American did not integrate themselves with the rest of the world. They kept themselves separate in order to assure that the knowledge would be preserved; they allowed the power struggle to continue while they simply sat back and tried to preserve the knowledge. You can see that is happening now. But the cycle is finishing, because so many of you now are beginning to realize how important that spiritual knowledge is. As more and more of you begin a spiritual search, those in power will have to change their ways because they won't be able to manipulate people anymore.
So your individual search for your own spiritual truth eventually affects the entire planet. This time on your planet that you are calling a new age is the completion of many thousands of years of conflict. We perceive that the conflict will be healed.
How long did people live underground? How long were their lives?
When the flood receded, about half of those who were underground emerged. Half stayed underground because they were not quite sure it was safe to emerge. Those who emerged saw that conflict was already beginning on the surface once again, so they retreated and kept to themselves. They refused to become part of that conflict. That's why today there is such a division between Western society and the native peoples. The Native Americans do not want to play the game of conflict.
The people who stayed underground remained there for several more generations. At one point, half of the half emerged, but there was still a group who remained underground. They are still there. They are the people you call the Inner Earth people. They have evolved quite rapidly over the past several thousand years. They have built their own society totally independent of yours, and in a sense they have mutated to allow themselves to adapt to life below the surface. They do not want to play the game of conflict either. Their lives are quite long, a life span averaging approximately 600 to 800 years. They do not procreate at the rate you do so there is no population problem.
In terms of the longevity of people during the period of the flood, their life span was longer than yours. It really depended upon the genetic characteristics of the individual. If a person had a genetic makeup based on a strong extraterrestrial background, he had a longer life span. This information is spoken about very clearly in the Bible. It is given that the ages of certain Biblical figures are well over 100 years, like Moses. Some are given quite long lifetimes. Those records are out there.
Over time, as you all have evolved away from being a part of the Earth, your life spans have gotten shorter. This is because when you are one with the Earth, you channel the life force of the Earth and it rejuvenates you. But when you cut yourself off from your life force, you deteriorate faster. This is why Native Americans have such long life spans and yogis who live up in the Himalayas do, too. They have, as much as they could, kept their connections with Earth. Your life span will grow longer the more you reconnect with the Earth. As your consciousness changes, your life span will grow.
RE: Alohah, much love My Brother,,
Thank you for bringing this to my attention Eric. I understand and recognize your concern. I do intend on utilizing 'MY' profile as a tool for expansion. Among the many utilities this venture offers I do plan on sharing ideas, networking, building friendships, and promoting my work. I dont intend on soliciting group members, nor would I use the group as a place to do business. My objective for my first group post was to declare my appreciation to the group for accepting me, and to let the group know I am open to new friendships.
I do however understand the meaning and purpose of your note, as well as your intention to keep the group wholesome, and I share your concerns. Please let me assure you that beyond all form of money or substance which pertains to my personal business. are greatest concern is the welfare of our kindred spirits on this planet. Our intention from day one was and always will be to convey a message of love, peace, and understanding about particular unknowns.
I do thank you for bringing this matter to light. I look forward to becoming apart of the family.
Thank you so very much
In love and light always

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
[Question:] Why do you decry religion, which obviously contains grains of truth? Why throw out the baby with the bath water? Need not truth be recognized wherever it is found?
[Krishnamurti:] Sirs, what do you mean by religion? Organized dogma, belief, rituals, worshipping any person however great, reciting prayers, repeating Shastras, quoting the Bible - is that religion? Or is religion the search for truth or God? Can you find God through organized belief? By your calling yourself a Hindu and following all the rituals of Hinduism or of any other "ism", will you find God or truth? Surely what I decry is not religion, not the search for reality, but organized belief with its dogmas and separative forces and influences. We are not seeking reality, but are caught in the net of organized beliefs, repetitive rituals - you know the whole business of it - which I call nonsense, because they are drugs that distract the mind from seeking; they offer escapes, and thereby make the mind dull, ineffective.
So, as our minds are caught in the net of organized beliefs with their whole system of authorities, priests and gurus, all of which are engendered through fear and the desire for certainty - as we are caught in that net, obviously, we cannot merely accept, we must enquire, we must look directly, experience directly, and see what it is we are caught in and why we are caught. Because my great grandfather did some ritual, or my mother is going to cry if I do not do it, therefore I must do it. Surely, such a man, who is psychologically dependent on others and hence fearful, is incapable of finding out what truth is. He may talk about it, he may repeat the name of God umpteen times, but he is nowhere, he has no reality. Reality will shun him, because he is encased in his own prejudices and fears. And you are responsible for this organized religion, whether of the East or of the West, whether of the left or of the right, which, being based on authority, has separated man from man. Why do you want authority, either of the past or of the present? You want authority because you are confused, you are in pain, in anxiety, there is loneliness and you are suffering. Therefore, you want help from outside; so you create authority, whether political or religious, and having created that authority, you follow its directions, hoping that the confusion, the anxiety, the pain in your heart, will be removed. Can another remove your pains, your sorrows? Others may help you to escape from sorrow, but it is always there.

To literate people in the 17th century the name Arcadia readily evoked the pastoral tradition, that easy going genre of poetry that had developed in parallel with epic writing since the time of the classical Greeks. The tradition stems from the supposedly carefree, open-air life enjoyed by shepherds and shepherdesses who spent all summer guarding their flocks, thus giving them plenty of time in which to play their flutes and compose poetry.
Poussin in fact painted two works on the "Death in Arcadia" theme. The earlier painting from around 1630-1632 (now in the collection of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, England) shows two shepherds and their charming female companion discovering with shock that a tomb bearing the disturbing message exists in their idyllic countryside. They are depicted leaning forward anxiously, confronting the fearsome discovery. As in the Guercino work, but with less prominence, on top of the tomb rests a skull - an essential attribute of Memento mori. Poussin also adds the river god, Alpheus, to the assembly. The face of the young girl gives a note of melancholy and this is an altogether more serious and solemn work than his second painting on this theme.

Blah... today is just really... blah. I am kind of... I dunno. Indifferent about life at the moment. I've been working so much and so hard I am exhausted. I might be changing jobs, like in the next few days, as I cannot bear to think the impact that my job has on the enviroment, not to mention the fact that someone I didn't want to know where I work, now knows where I work. I can't seem to win for losing. I will try to post more later, but I haven't been able to get online much. I'm concerned about some things, and there are some people I'd really like to see and can't. Blargh..
Also I'm mourning, because my friend has alzheimers, she is an old Japanese woman, who is a wonderful person. I hope that she will be well, and I keep her in my prayers.
If you have someone, anyone, family, friend or partner you love... take today to remind them that you care for them in a special way, and to tell them you love them. Because you never know when they may not be there anymore, or when you may have to part ways. You think everyone just says this, but I tell you, it is SO true.
Musical selection for the moment, though I can't remember if I posted these lyrics or not... reminds me of how I feel about regret in my love life.. sometimes words are indeed few...
Sarah Mclachlan - I Love You
I have a smile stretched from ear to ear
I see you walking down the road
We meet at the lights, I stare for a while
The world around us disappears
It's just you and me on my island of hope
A breath between us could be miles
Let me surround you, a sea to your shore
Let me be the calm you seek
But everytime I'm close to you
There's too much I can't say
And you just walk away
And I forgot to tell you
I love you
And night's too long
And cold here
I grieve in my condition
For I cannot find the words to say
I need you so
And everytime I'm close to you
There's too much I can't say
And you just walk away
And I forgot to tell you
I love you
And night's too long
And cold here
I grieve in my condition
For I cannot find the words to say
I need you so

Keys to the Kingdom
He who has opened 'pandoras box' through the sounding of the keys had better be ready.The dawning of a new world...is but moments away, can you hear the battle cries to arms TO ARMS!?
If you are having any trouble with aspects of your awakening in any area .. please write to me. I will help you as much as I can..to be truly awakened is to truly realize your oneness in the above. Many are in their minds now..but also there are some still struggling. As above, so below.
My basic advice is to search every avenue, every thought, every topic, every subtle hint that comes to you out of the air, every coincidence, (as there are no coincidences)...study, learn, realize your mission. For it is only through self realization that you will achieve your awakening. It will take time, it will take effort, it will literally for some drive you mad(I am here to tell you you are NOT mad)...but you will have to trust me. It is worth it. The beauty of the above cannot be put into earthly words.
Also, if you are of a strict religion...that WILL impeed your awakening if you are not open to the diversity that earth brings. You MUST be open to the oneness that ties us all. All earth based religions are of human invention. Please ..trust me when I advise you in this area. Balance is the key. As above so below.You may worship as you please, knowing we are all from one is all that is necessary.
mmm. Looking for jobs, dreaming of a better life, coming into contact with realistic roadblocks, remembering reality is maleable, wondering exactly how much change (as viewed through my eyes) it can take, and what the breaking point is...
it sucks to have a criminal history. read those words. i bet a little acid flared up in your belly. people hear that and nervousness hits them.
Karl Krauss - squeeze human nature into the straight jacket of criminal justice, and crime will appear.
the people don't have control of the direction of this country. obviously. for one, we don't live in a democracy, we live in a republic. others REpresent us. very few times have i been really ok with others representation of exactly what i mean.
Some people reading this...ha, if anyone reads this...may not know what i'm talking about. do you believe Oswald killed JFK? do you believe that the FDA and DEA have our best interests at heart?
If this is making someone feel odd, butting against the feelings of nationalism and 'patriotism' that have been programmed into your mind and heart, check this out:
Thomas Jefferson. American enough, right? Ok, TJ is in the library of congress as saying: If people allow the government to decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those that live under tyranny.
Now to show how far this country has come, here is a quote from the drug czar John Walters: The American people do not need to decide what substances they consume. That is govenment's job.
If only the situation ended at debate. There are people on trial, in jail, in prison, for their choices of medicine. Criminals are overcrowding the landscape because of legislation of opinion. And sadly, this has not been changed. People's minds are so thoroughly programmed that most automatically agree with officials.
The same officials that told people to stay in the second world trade center after the first 'plane' impact. The same officials that were somehow absent from their offices in the two towers that day. The same officials that made a ludicrous connection between Osama and Hussein, and then said we were disarming someone with nukes, when Iraq had not one nuclear weapon. The same ones who commit crimes in the name of freedom and democracy, when they aren't even using the right fucking word. WE LIVE IN A REPUBLIC. not a democracy.
Haha...man.. ok, point being...its crazy out there. when you really open those peepers, you may realize that we are being socially engineered to take their drugs, believe their stories, and think inside our zoological exhibits called 'american lives'. and if you get outside that cage, be quiet. they have nets, guns, and more cages ready.
i'm really not paranoid, i just need some coffee.
Well, this week has been nothing but one syncronistic whirl! everything that I have needed has come to me in some way. Or it has always been there. All about transformation, acceptance, letting go and just being happy. Well, I guess not only this week but the weeks before that that led to this realization. Most times to transform means to endure some pain and suffering to any degree before you can release. My inspiration has come from all my friends, family,and teachers who are just being. Thanks love Carrie Fay
I may or may not have done so. I cannot be sure.
Usually people have a stereotyped image of what an enlightened person looks like: a saintly figure who is humble, knowledgeable about all spiritual matters, lives a simple life, few possessions (if any) and has a recognizable charisma of peace, gentleness, and compassion. This is true. It is also true that the person looks so ordinary that you wouldn't know him or her if you sat next to them on a bus. The person may not be reclusive, but have a family, be a hard active worker, live in reasonable comfort and more than likely have a very good sense of humor Buddha was a fully enlightened person, as was Jesus and possibly other great spiritual leaders I cannot comment on this because I do not know.
All people have the potential to full enlightenment and those working on their spiritual development have some degree of it. It is not necessarily a static and permanent condition. It is a state influenced by many factors. Wise people say they know nothing. Knowledge comes to them when it is required; it also comes to ordinary people when the need arises.
As a meditation teacher, I used to plan what theme or teaching I would include in my talk to my students prior to a meditation session. Sometimes I went off track, and sometimes I spoke of something quite different to that I had intended to talk about. Later a student would often say to me, 'Strange that you should talk about that, because what happened to me today was...'
When my elder daughter was three, I had this premonition-like fear that she was going to die before her fourth birthday. No matter what I tried this conviction held me firmly and caused me distress. At the time I was a member of a philosophical group and I was spending the weekend in their retreat house doing all sorts of work and practices. We were up extremely early one morning and were undertaking various physical tasks. The fear about my daughters imminent death was very strong and I wondered if I should discuss it with a senior member of the group. Instead, I impulsively spoke to the person working next to me. She listened and said,'Have no fear. That event happened many years ago in a previous lifetime. It is over with. What you have is simply a memory, nothing more'. I suddenly realized this was true and the fear totally disintegrated.
Some time later, after breakfast, I felt I needed to thank the person for her wisdom and insight. She looked at me blankly. 'I cannot recall any conversation. I do not know what you said or what I said to you. I do remember that you were sad and upset about something. If what I said was helpful to you then I am glad that I was able to help'.
Much of my lifetime has been spent awaiting the right teacher. What I realize now is that they were all right for me at that time. Generally teachers base their methods of what has worked for them and what they have experienced. It is experience and not fact learning that is important.
Your progress on the Path is paramount in your life and only by testing things out and knowing for yourself that something is true, can you really trust it. There are many ideas and opinions out there just waiting to attach themselves to your inclinations. Ideas and opinions are not truths. There is a world of difference for you to discover.
Forget your idea about When the student is ready, the Master will appear. The Master does appear but not how you might expect.
When a lesson is to be learned, the teacher is there to guide if you are willing to accept the guidance. You have to realize that in your inner self, the help is available. You have the strength, you have the power! If you are seeking Truth, you will definitely find it. It does not come when you expect it, though!
You exist on many planes or levels like your TV set which can be tuned in to several programs. You can tune in to higher levels and receive teachings from your Higher Self, your Higher Consciousness, your Divine Being. The terminology does not matter. You have the Universe within you as does each of us: the Microcosm and the Microcosm as above, so below.
In the parable of the Prodigal Son, at the end of his journey, the Father said,
Son, thou art ever with me and all that I have is thine.
That is exactly how it is. How sad that we have forgotten.

I am just amazed at the Loving nature of all of you who took the time to
wish me well, send me good positivity, offer precious wisdom and sent me
It made a huge difference. Not immediately, but what happened was I hit some sort of emotional bottom and it was there that a new spark of awareness about it all, appeared.
It was new insight regarding a long-stemming issue that I became aware of, freeing me from an
emotional tie that held me down for so long.
I owe it to you, and all your prayers and positive energy. I'm not 'cured' or 'healed' or whatever.
Rather, I'm aware, and that's a light as any other...I see where it leads..
Bless You all.
You are strong, adaptable, and striving to be content. You're good at taking what life has to give - even if you don't like it. A passionate lover who can't be satisfied, you are quick tempered at times. You hate loneliness, want love and affection, and need to be needed. A bit of a live wire, you love to gain knowledge any cost... and you can be careless at times.

I am Woman. What does this mean you wonder? This word, Woman? It means, you won't find a size 0 under the denim on my rear end. There are no hard or breakable parts on me. I could care less about the latest fashions or what bag goes with what shoes, or should I wear white after Labor Day? While my eyes appreciate the wonder of the male body, I'm old enough to appreciate the splendor of the mind over a pretty package. Flex your brains boys, not just your brawn. You won't find jealousy here. Amusement perhaps instead. Woman knows a Man stays where he is honored. Stupidity goes where he is only desired. You won't find Botox nor perky boobs. You'll find an abundance of laugh lines, and breasts soft to welcome a tired head in need of rest. No rock hard abs here, but rather pliable, radiant skin, who's lines, curves, and valleys tell a story of a path well traveled, and who's womb has sustained and delivered the powerful glory of life. Woman learns while the body changes and evolves, so does the mind. The rich, delicious musings of Woman's mind can take you anywhere you wish to go. Love tastes sweeter, with a texture and flavor so surprising and exciting, one's mouth can't help but water in anticipation of the next spoonful. Woman is simple even in her complexities. She knows what she wants, and says so, but also knows comprimise, and accepts occasional disappointment as a way of life. Woman bends with change, and sways with the tragedies that occur as time marches on. She speaks her mind without trampling on anyone unless absolutely necessary, because yes, all has its time and place. She fights for Belief, Truth, Spirituality and Freedom, with a firm stance rather than religious fanaticism, as she knows a whisper is heard more clearly than a shriek. Woman cares for her own, in a quiet tending way, or as savage as Mother Bear when threatened. Woman is a warrior tested and true, with battle scars and memories she tucks away to teach future generations. Woman is Man's primal need...as ingrained to his persona as breathing. There are girls everywhere, ripe for the picking. To satisfy your every desire on all possible levels, find yourself a Woman. She will bring you Home!

...that life is simply a series of experiences, emotions, thoughts and expressions then you're not truly living.
If you believe that adults are meant to lose their sense of childhood bliss and imagination then you're not truly living.
If you believe that it is more fun to watch a sitcom than to sit outside and stare at the stars then (guess what) you're not truly living.
If you believe that how you dress is important and you spend more than 10 minutes a day in front of the mirror then you're not truly living.
If you believe nearly everything you read or hear and hardly ever think for yourself then you're not truly living.
How about taking a few minutes out of your day today to truly live: draw a picture, blow bubbles, pet an animal (preferably not wild hehe), play with a child, sing a song, dance in the shower, laugh at "nothing", skip down the street, make a bird feeder, plant a tree, do yoga or tai chi, or just stare at the stars :-)

"I discovered that people are not really afraid of dying; they're afraid of not ever having lived, not ever having deeply considered their life's higher purpose, and not ever having stepped into that purpose and at least tried to make a difference in this world." -- Joseph Jaworski
You come to this life on earth with specific talents and intentions. Through your inner guidance you begin to understand and use these gifts. You come here with an assignment, or a life purpose, if you will. It may be the task of raising a family, transforming a business, communicating your ideas as a teacher, or being a leader in your community.
Your task may be a massive one such as raising the level of constructive communication between warring countries, or awakening a consciousness of love and forgiveness in a segment of the population. Whatever purpose your soul has come to unfold, through your Divine intuition you are given guidance and life experiences that will prepare you to fulfill it.
Many people assume this life purpose is a job or career they are here to fulfill. Sometimes our purpose is not a thing we need to do, but a quality we need to develop in order for our soul to unfold and grow to the next level. Through a physical disability you might learn to let others help you or, conversely, learn self-reliance. You may have grown up in an abusive home and learned about empathy and forgiveness. In many sessions with clients I sense a quality that they are here to develop, such as resiliency, patience or courage.
Following are some other common life lessons. This is not meant to be a comprehensive list of life purposes but rather an overview of possibilities. As you read these see if any resonate with you. The purpose of your life may be to:
* Heal a relationship with another individual or group of individuals.
* Develop a specific characteristic such as love, forgiveness, hope, compassion, patience, courage and faith.
* Invent a service or product that will help and assist humankind.
* Create works of art and beauty to help heal the souls of others.
* Open your heart after an experience of loss and be a model for helping others do the same.
* Display courage, integrity or honesty during a personal or professional difficulty.
* Foster open and non-judgmental communication within a family, neighborhood, office, or in the world at large.
* Aid in the spiritual development of others.
* Create a strong family in order to foster the life purpose of yourself, your spouse and/or your children.
* Release a focus on fear, worry and anxiety and transform it with the qualities of love, patience and faith.
When you know your life purpose, you tap into a source of power that enables you to achieve your goals more easily and effectively. Susan Jeffers, the author of Feel Your Fear and Do It Anyway, wrote, "We become powerful in the face of our fears when we have a sense that we make a difference in this world." As your purpose in life evolves you'll find yourself with more clarity, energy and abundance.
Remember that your life purpose need not be a huge project or undertaking. It may be a quality you develop or a gift you share with your immediate family and community. Listen to the still, small voice within and allow it to show you your purpose.
Love the Planet – Using Recyclable Toilet Paper:
Do you know that virgin forests are cut down every day to make toilet paper for us humans?
Here’s what we can do to stop it.
Toilet Paper Fact:
If every household in the United States replaced just one roll of virgin fiber toilet paper (500 sheets) with 100% recycled ones, we could save 423,900 trees.
Toilet Paper Companies________% Recycled % Post-Consumer Bleaching Process
365 (Whole Foods) _ 100 >80 PCF
Ambiance 100 80 PCF
April Soft 100 80 PCF
Best Value _ 100 <40 PCF
Earth First _ 100 80 PCF
Fiesta 100 80 PCF
Marcal _ 100 40 PCF
Planet 100 80 PCF
Pert 100 <40 PCF
Seventh Generation 100 80 PCF
Sofpac _ 100 40 PCF
Charmin AVOID _ 0 0 ECF
Cottonelle AVOID _ 0 0 ECF
Note: You can also save trees by using recycled facial tissues, paper towels, and paper napkins which are also produced by many of the same brands above.
Three Reminders You Can Do To Help Save Our Forests:
1. Buy paper products with recycled content— especially post-consumer fibers.
Look for products that have a high recycled content, including high post-consumer content. Post-consumer fibers are recovered from paper that was previously used by consumers and would otherwise have been dumped into a landfill or an incinerator.
2. Buy paper products made with clean, safe processes.
Paper products are bleached to make them whiter and brighter, but chlorine used in many bleaching processes contributes to the formations of harmful chemicals that wind up in our air and water and are highly toxic to people and fish. Look for products labeled totally chlorine-free (TCF) or processed chlorine-free (PCF). In some cases, elemental chlorine-free (ECF) may be acceptable.
3. Tell tissue manufacturers to stop using virgin wood for throwaway products.
If a brand you buy for your home doesn’t have any recycled content, contact the manufacturer. Tell the company to use more recycled fibers, to avoid sourcing from ecologically valuable forests such as those in the Cumberland Plateau and Canadian boreal, and to ensure any virgin fibers used are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. Saving forests also helps reduce global warming pollution.

"God is one but our paths are different"
The purpose of this page is to promote interfaith cooperation. I have seen too many people fight over Religion and that is not what Religion is about. Religion is about bringing people together no matter how different the world says they are from one another. Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, and Sikhism and the many other religions of the world have only one path: The path to God. If you are going to hate on another religion then please keep it to yourself. .
Now a bit about myself :-)
I do believe in religion
Born in a strict religion, but now I'm a bit of everything.
Born and raised here in United States.
I am a huge believer of a Higher Power. My daily goal is to tap into that power on a daily basis.
I am thinking of taking a week off of work when my room mate vacations with her family this summer. I have been seriously craving some solitude for the last few weeks. All in all, solitude is not a bad thing, though there are the social addicts that come out of the woodwork who swear that you are depressed or need that special someone in your life or this or that or blah blah blah. To those people, I say bullshit. I consider it a spiritual vacation of sorts. (I have to admit though, there are people who make me want to run and scream while pulling my hair out in giant clumps... but they are not my reason for seeking out some inner peace.) So, if anyone chooses to lecture me on what they feel I should or shouldn't be doing, please do us both a favor and put a sock in it. My path isn't suited for you, nor yours for me... and I DO mean that in the most spiritual, loving way possible (PFFFTTTT! lol) During those times of solitude, I spend many hours on the internet chatting with a select few people or researching topics of the religious/spiritual/psychic/metaphysical/supernatural. I feel like there is a blurred line between all of those topics. My solitude is almost always spent with my own education and enlightenment in mind. Of those few I chat with, I consider them to be mentors of sorts... we exchange ideas and learn from each other. During these times, its like we lift burdens from each other that only this particular group is familiar with and then retreat back to "normal" every day life to apply what we learned. Thank goodness for those few... they aren't in out in left field like most seem to think. These few aren't even in the ballpark. And remember, "Spiritual people can say 'f*ck' too"... the best advice ever, Judy. (Thank you for that!)
The problem for many is that anger can be the result of trivial things. For me, unfortunately, I can become angry when people merely suggest something. Of course this does not frequently happen, and is often a reaction after slow-burn of irritation. I do not like being snappy with people and I feel bad with myself particularly when a member of my family is concerned. I am glad that over the past few years I have matured and have become a calmer person in such circumstances. I have come to accept the way people think and act and am able to appreciate people more. I have managed to create a rapport with those who I once became exasperated with. There are people who are worse off than I am and there is no sense in being trivial. I think that perhaps being short tempered is a by-product of being a teenager and it is not a bad thing to let this phase pass.
Sorry, I meant to say that since being in Nottingham which is a busy and threatening city I have not shown anger because I have supressed it as I wish to save face; both of myself and those new friends around me. At home, in rural Herefordshire, I found 2 hours every week to wander. I would walk into the woods, over hills, around country lanes to be alone as a release valve of any tension. This way I had time without the pressures of being around other people, without demands. The result of this is that when I would return home, I would be prepared for any demands and would be kinder and more forgiving of others. I am lucky in that I have no real complaints about life, but it still makes a difference to find an alternative channel for any anger or even everyday stress.
Live Your Life... Come From The Heart... Just Be
Your probably can't handle me... I'll drive you devinely wild beyond your most passionate and erotic fantasies, dreams, and experiences. But you're welcome to try.
I walk where the shadows and dreams meet, and the darkness merges with infinite light and consciousness. Radiating, pulsating. ever-present... alive and free, fully aware.
Life is an amazing mystery. I'm here to have a great time and a good life. My life is far too great to waste on games. As soon as the crap starts, I put the foot down. It's time to evolve past the drama, jealousy and insecurities that ruin so many lives. I'm perfectly happy and accepting of who I am, what I do, and the life I live. And I'm perfectly happy and accepting of who you are and what you do. I'm the most interesting and amazing person you will ever meet. I overcome every obstacle and complete every challenge in my life. Everything I do is an adventure. If contacting me is going to be a mutually life-enriching experiance, then go for it. You can learn something from every interaction and experiance.
Be What You Are
Believing is seeing, deeper than eternity. I love myself and I love what I do. I don't claim to be superior to anyone or an authority, so just be with what resonates with your heart. I've come to realize that most people are living in fear instead of living in love. I challenge you to evolve past the mundane and lost lives. We are who we choose to be. Our lives are shaped by our decisions. Everything that has happened in our lives has been because of what we have done. We live our lives and make them whole. I'm a Master, living my life the way I want it to be. I love my life, and I love what I do. I'm very non-judgemental, I believe that perception is projection. I live my life with passion, energy and love. I am open, alive, aware and present. I value integrity and unconditional love above all. I'm always learning, and always teaching. I know that there's so much more to life than the generic bland of normality. I'm very open minded, let's enlighten each other.
Awaken Your Immortal
I tell it how it is, that's it. I do my own thing, I'm on my own path. If you can't accept that, then open yourself and come back when you're ready. I accept people as they are, but that doesn't mean I have to accept their behavior. I believe that you can learn something from every interaction, value that. The world is your mirror. I don't reject others, I reject their behaviors and actions. I don't need anyone in my life trying to bring me down. I see no need to hide who I am, who I am is who I am. It's okay for you to be nasty or mean, but not with me. When you realize that you really don't need anyone else's approval, you're liberated. Indigo Master: If you know what that means, contact me. We have much to share.
I have high standards for myself and for the people I connect with. If however, you meet my standards, then get ready for the wildest time of your life.
You can always take comfort in the belief that creator loves you.
Absolute truth and love, undying integrity and purpose. ... feel it. We all have a purpose... find yours and live it.
I don't need to tell you, I want you to feel.
Mentally scream until I hear you, burn your passion into mine...
feel until there is nothing. We're alive... and nothing can stop us. Breathe that in, feel it in your heart.
listening to its delicate touch upon the trees
watching it glisten on the green leaves
lighting my altar candle
centering in anjali mudra
breathing in the beauty of the moment
another day of life
in which to grow closer to the source
smiling with love
filling with warmth
sipping tazo passion tea
thoughts playing through my head
so much passed
but the moment is now
dancing into my day
Humankind has always been observers of the elements, in ancient time we recognized 4 major ones that are still used today in analyzing human nature and patterns, earth, water, fire, and air. We now know that there are well over 4 elements. However the relationship between these stands strong as a gateway between astrology and psychology.
Green- the most misunderstood of the personality types, often think and talk in large concepts. Quick to judge and when frustrated become very over critical. Green usually has a strong grasp on there personal spirituality and are good at keeping and maintain there environments.
Blue- Very in tune with there emotions and others emotions. When there happy everyone around them feel it and when there sad the same applies. Blue is most trusted among the colors with emotional problems and personal struggles. They would rather have a one on one conversation then be in the middle of a dance club any day.
Red- down for something fun, burning by nature with the lust for life living. Spending most of there schooling years watching the clock so they could get out and have a good time. Red is always looking for excitement and knowing where to find it. When they get down it's the end of the world till a friend comes around and relights that fire.
Gold- great at schooling and practical tasks, and not to sure why others have trouble. Incredible leaders, strong with money and keeping order and schedules. Gold have strong confidence and personal strength.
Earth - Green - Intellectual, connected strongly to the environment you keep and your view unto your higher self, or spirituality. In the tarot it's represented by the disk, coin, or pentacle.
Water- Blue- Emotional, connected strongly to how you display or communicate your emotions to yourself and to the universe around you. Keep in mind feeling is two senses, emotions travel and are shared and reflected amongst the collective. In the Tarot it's presented as the cups.
Fire- Red- Physical, connected strong to the burning that moves you in any endeavor. Its fun, sex, drugs, and rocken roll or it's happy, passion and desire driven goals. Fire is connected closest to the physical plain and active life activities. In the Tarot it's presented through the wands, staffs, or rods.
Air- Gold- Practical, connected strongly to personal strength. When one overcomes something and gains strength, it can be used to attack someone else or protect the person from harm. Air is the strongest suit in structuring pain and potentially painful situations. In the tarot it's presented as the sword. In I-Ching air is broken into metal and wood, making 5 elements.
Arch Angels of the Elements.
Within a more classical religious view, the elements are brought by 4 arch angels, although there one of the many labels we've put upon these electromagnetic polar forces.
Uriel- North, bringer of earth and answers spiritual questions about environment and creativity.
Raphael- East, bringer of water, emotion, and most of all emotional direction. Helps you look within to see emotional barriers as small challenges rather then a calling for the protection of air.
Gabriel- West, bringer of fire, passion, muses, desire and imagination.
Michael- South, Bringer of air and personal strength, a guardian helper in the hardships that come with any noble adventure.
Well thanks for checking out Elemental Gazes~ all is insight.
Literally, 5 minutes after my last blog about the cup dream I decided to continue reading a book I had set aside for a few days. It's called Your Invisible Power By Genevieve Behrend. Here is a paragraph that inspired her from the book The Dore Lectures by T. Troward with her remarks afterward:
"'My mind is a center of Divine operation. The Divine operation is always for expansion and fuller expression, and this means the production of something beyond what has gone before, something entirely new, not included in the past experience, though proceeding out of it by an orderly sequence or growth. Therefore, since the Divine cannot change its inherent nature, it must operate in the same manner with me; consequently, in my own special world, of which I am the center, it will move forward to produce new conditions, always in advance of any that have gone before.'
The paragraph inspired me with deep interest to feel that the life-spark in me could bring into my life something entirely new. I did not wish to obliterate my past experience, but that was exactly what Troward said it would not do. The Divine operation would not exclude my past experience, but proceeding out of it would bring some new things that would transcend anything that I had ever experienced before."
Hallelujah! My subconscious was preparing me for this concept! Just one day before. How bizarre! Clearly, I have picked up on the scent. Weeeee! I truly enjoy this kinda work.
P.S. My boss paid to watch The Secret again today at work!
I am surrounded by beautiful loving people! <3 style="font-weight: bold;">

"I like and love you"
"We like and love you to"
Well.......................................................yes. It is, in fact, both. The One is all inclusive, so it must be both things. Neither/nor is for, well you know. Here's the thing - the universe is now comprised of opposites, of polarities. This creates tension, movement. It creates. What does this all come from? Nothing.
Within one being, both aspects exist. For example, a woman has masculine - or yang - qualities (ex. forthrightedness). Man has feminine - or yin - qualities (ex. sensitivity, if even just a little, it's still there!).
To say, "it's both", is nice. It dissolves argument. Physicists once argued over whether light was particles or waves. They did their tests, some validated that light was a particle, others that light was a wave. Well......... it seems that light can be a particle or a wave. The scientists left their argument behind and agreed, "It's both!"
Essentially there are no contradictions, but different faces, different windows, different angles. When we shift our mind to include more, to dissolve the imaginary walls of the mind, true nature reveals itself.
When we shift our viewpoint we see a nature entirely something else, and, yet, a part of the same thing.

Introduction to Sacred Geometry
Sacred Geometry is the blueprint of Creation and the genesis of all form. It is an ancient science that explores and explains the energy patterns that create and unify all things and reveals the precise way that the energy of Creation organizes itself. On every scale, every natural pattern of growth or movement conforms inevitably to one or more geometric shapes.
As you enter the world of Sacred Geometry you begin to see as never before the wonderfully patterned beauty of Creation. The molecules of our DNA, the cornea of our eye, snow flakes, pine cones, flower petals, diamond crystals, the branching of trees, a nautilus shell, the star we spin around, the galaxy we spiral within, the air we breathe, and all life forms as we know them emerge out of timeless geometric codes. Viewing and contemplating these codes allow us to gaze directly at the lines on the face of deep wisdom and offers up a glimpse into the inner workings of the Universal Mind and the Universe itself.
The ancients believed that the experience of Sacred Geometry was essential to the education of the soul. They knew that these patterns and codes were symbolic of our own inner realm and the subtle structure of awareness. To them the sacred had particular significance involving consciousness and the profound mystery of awareness .. the ultimate sacred wonder. Sacred Geometry takes on another whole level of significance when grounded in the experience of self-awareness.
The gift of lightSource is that it actually allows you to experience that essential self within the designs of pure Source energy. As the blueprints literally come to life before your eyes, you are propelled into ecstatic play with the very the heart of Creation.
