Stop. Please.

Just Stop the Madness!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“Not every human creature upon our earth is beautiful, unique, and/or priceless. Please stop spreading the empty sentiments. Some people are priceless, unique, and beautiful. Many more, so it seems, are not. Lying to yourselves and the rest of the world is just laziness on your part. It’s easier (currently) to believe empty, unproven sentiment than it is to put the hard work into becoming unique, beautiful (in all its incarnations), priceless, and your own truest person.

Go ahead, I dare you to spread the actual truth instead of the accepted false verity that abounds. Oh my, how unpopular you will become. I should know!!! Lol. The hard truths are quite difficult (that’s an understatement) for Mankind to incorporate into their self-evolution or lack thereof.

Please, try harder, in all things. Life is pain. Period. Alas, it is also beyond amazing…if you choose to make it so and put in the effort to evolve.”

Fear or Fearless?

25 May

Fear or Fearless?

From “A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies…”

If you think you understand fear and courage within the human heart, spirit, and mind…until you face “it” and come out the other end and understand where you have been, only then can you determine the fear that exists in our world…borne from our own ignorance, for sure. Only then, will you be able determine the true breadth of that fear, and what you need to do with it.

Listening to “New Age” gurus and self-proclaimed “enlightened” leaders of this bullshit or that bullshit, will NOT help you understand the reality of fear. You can take all the drugs in the world, and think you have faced it, a fear, your fear…but until you are bare bones, stripped down to the only real you that actually exists, no hocus pocus, no blah, blah, blah, from Social Media groups and the like…just you… only then you can plumb those depths known to many sentient beings as…fear.

It is real and it exists, for whatever reasons you think, because we need it to exist.
I am going to have to disagree, partially, with those that disagree with me and use the “Nothing to fear but fear itself,” at me. I know that most are going to not agree with me. That’s cool. I only know the truth and the depths of my life. To understand a fear is a type of courage. To face a fear is another type of courage. For I had to face that fear. That is courage. I am also not ignorant of why some fear exists and its ability to help people make better choices.

Life is not either this or that. It is not black and white. Life exists in a kaleidoscope of colors and the layered ability and courage to understand “it.”

 

Being afraid to admit fear…is a weakness. It is not courage or bravery.

Tragedy Human Ego Quote 2018 Watermark

Wanderlust

20 May

An excerpt from the current chapter I am writing for my newest literary alchemy-

“A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies.”

Chapter ?
“wanderlust”
My wanderlust allowed me to break free, at the very young age of twelve years old, from living inside that bubble, that early dying instead of living, gilded cage. You know the one. The one that (most) parents and societal ignorance wanted to keep me tethered to, that forever home, looking out the windows provided to me for my “safety” but truly a trap, eventually, a prison of my own design.

So, with shoes on my feet, a shirt on my back and a mind ignorant of the badness that lived in the wide, wide, world, I tricked my prison guards, unlocked (stole the keys while eating dinner in the mess hall) that ridiculously tall door that surely weighed two-thousand pounds or more and made my great escape!

Into the bright but rainy day I slipped away from all that I had ever known and from a very real understanding of being safe and taken care of, just so I could help the world see (what I could so easily see….all the fucking time!) that our formatted lives from birth, are only a house of corrections, some decorated with the finest silk and plush carpets, and some bare bones and dilapidated, yet, still an impound, a confine, a garden to look at and sit down in, but don’t you dare touch it and/or kick up some dirt and roll around in it! And so, I slipped away out into the second taste of true freedom (I had to free my mind first!) I had ever known.

More important than the hows, whys, and wheres of my wanderlust, is, while I followed my heart and each transformation of my being to and fro, near and far, is what did I leave behind and what did I take with me, each and every time.

How did I change those whose path I wandered onto and how did they change me?

Everything we are ever taught is ultimately bullshit. Everything turns back into the soil from which we came. No one leaves this life differently than anyone else. We all die. We are gone. All that we chose to become has turned back into dust. What do we leave behind that actually matters? Is it great works of art? Is it your religion? Is it your beliefs? Is it your Social Media status? Is it a subculture? Is it a government? Is it power? Is it grand architecture? What is it that we really leave behind?

It is how did we love.

How do you love?

toward an altered mindfulness.”

“I Believe”

30 Aug

“I Believe”

Oh, I believe alright…

I feel no need for any other faith than my faith in human beings. Like Confucius of old, I am so absorbed in the wonder of earth and the life upon it that I choose to not even contemplate the absurdity, the idea of there really being a biblical “Heaven” and “Angels” or any other invisible world and invisible beings. What is seen, touched, felt, what is already inside of me, what already hath been created by nature, is far greater, far more miraculous than any made up plane of existence that may or may not be outside of myself and our universe. I have enough for this life. If there is no other life, then this one has been enough (because I choose to live my life to the fullest) to make it worth being born, myself a human being.

*For me, there is no bondage. For me, there is only freedom, because I choose for it to be, I choose, not “them”. I am in absolute control of how I think and the actions I choose. I have never and I will never look without for my power. I will never give gratitude to an invisible being for that which I have cultivated from within, for that which is my power created by my own will…never by an invisible being. No gods/goddesses have power over me or are responsible for that which I am. I am truly free. I answer to the only person who has any real power over me…myself.

As always, I speak for myself only.
