Propelling Forward and Growing

18 Aug


Propelling Forward and Growing

Excerpt from my book-Blood’s Truth-published last year:

Disclaimer (Page 7):

Believe what feels right for you, not what you are spoon fed or that which will allow you to be in good standing with the chosen clique (group, religion, cult, community) that will fulfill your need to be accepted. Believe that which opens your mind, all through your life, not just once, to possibilities that used to be beyond your imagination. Keep your power. Cultivate it, your power, and empower yourself with every breath you breathe. Try not to unknowingly give it, your power, to those who deceive others and themselves. Believe that which feels right for you and you alone. Believe that which propels you forward and allows you to grow and keep becoming whatever it is that you truly desire.

Try not to confuse “propelling forward and growing” with being controlled and manipulated into thinking you are moving forward in your life, indeed, that you are evolving. When in truth you’re actually only serving the selfish needs of others, you’re only becoming that which they desperately need for you to become, so that they can continue to live within their own delusions while you are actually stagnating.

Believe that which allows you to be all that you can and to live the best and most productive life possible. Live being the key word. A life for yourself and for those that you love can be full of beauty…it can be a wonderful adventure.

You choose.

End excerpt


With the possible exception of Buddhism (The jury in my mind is still out about living a life with Buddhism as your guide.) most of our unnecessary ego and violence and quite frankly, fears of, well, just about everything, would be eliminated if we, as a species, learn how to let go of the lies and learn how to really, I mean, really, think for ourselves. Many claim that they do…think for themselves, but, in truth, do not even know how.

While, in my opinion, the desire to create, on Earth, a perfect, violent-free Utopia, is backwards thinking, a Utopia, nonetheless, could start to flourish. All the bad and ugly and sad and destruction, that is a part of our Earth’s cycle of life, needs to still exist along with all the creation and beauty and compassion and love, that is also a part of our whole.

We, I have come to understand and have faith in, are born with all that we need to know. We are born with all the answers. We are, at this time, still too limited to be able to make heads or tails out of most of the truths that are borne inside of our DNA. However, that is not a valid reason to give up, to stop reaching higher and transcending as high as our given lineages will allow us to reach.

Any organized religion (or cult, which are one in the same), Social Media Groups relating to any kind of rules and doctrine that you MUST follow and NEVER question, any Communities online or offline, any formal gathering of Humans that try to dictate how you must live, in such a way, that you are truly only giving them glory (no matter how they disguise it with deities and other symbolic hooha) and really only buying into their delusions which I know, beyond any shadow of doubt (willing to stake my own life on this truth), have not a shred of evidence, that can be examined by all to back up one miserable edict and “ancient rites/philosophy/knowledge” that spews out of their liar’s tongues.

Gather knowledge…on your own. Be the last to speak, the last to give your opinion. Be the last to walk away. Be the last if need be to call out the liars users, megalomaniacs, the narcissistically ignorant,  or the empty Human vessels that will do anything to get you to pay them some attention.

Be the first to think for yourself. Be the first to not allow the fears Mankind has created out of his own ignorance and spoon fed to you, to guide your thoughts and actions. Be the first to NOT be a bystander. Be the first squash all of the true 7 Deadly Sins (Apathy, Cruelty, Duplicity, Hypocrisy, False Morality, Abuse of Power, and Cultivated Ignorance.), no matter the consequences you might have to endure. Be the first to do what is truly right, as we are all born with instinctive morality (obviously there are exceptions to this, no need to get your panties in a twist over it).

Be the first to be the last. Mankind is always fighting to be first in line. It is those of us bringing up the rear that will survive the imminent destruction brought to fruition by those at the front of the line.

Hallowe’en 2016

9 Aug

My Hallowe’en video from 2016. I am working on the new one for 2017, as I type this. Ignore the glaring typo…”Hallowe’en 2017.” I am as imperfect as they come. 
Thank the Universe. 
Enjoy…I hope.

Different? Meh, Mayhaps, Closer to the Universal All-(Article One of Fairy Tales)

Different? Meh, Mayhaps, Closer to the Universal All-

(Article One)


Fairy tales…paranormal…esoteric knowledge…it’s all borne from the same primordial soup.

Snow White Grimms Fairy Tales

I was borne Snow-White in every sense of Her earliest label. Now, I am so much more but at my core, I will always be Her, Snow-White.


My life, not yours (you must figure out who you truly are, I mean, truly who you are, on your own), but mine, is just like an original Grimm Brothers Fairy Tale. Why? Because, I am, myself, A true fairy tale.

I am and it, just is.

All that we know and all that we understand has the potential to be broken…all. In knowing this, whether or not humanity has a deeper understanding of it or not, why do you (we) fight for, sacrifice for, endure for, feel pain for, self-doubt for, abuse and be abused for, and even die for, that which can (and for almost everyone, at some point) and will be broken?

I know why I do it. Do you know why you do it?

Once broken, it (whatever that might be) can never be put back together the way that it was before. Sometimes, once it is broken, we can pick up some of those pieces and create something new, something stronger, yet, even then, it will still have the ability to break, again.

So, why do we do it?

Is creating something new out of the broken, better? Is it stronger, or rather, does it have the potential to be stronger, to be, in some ways, superior? Is that which breaks, an inevitable circumstance/lesson in life without which we can not truly reach our fullest and probable inherent meaningfulness? Without the broken, is the apex of our transcendence truly possible?

I know why I do it. Do you know why you do it?

Do you even know that real happiness fills us with sadness and tears?

Do you even really know how beautiful your face truly is?

I know. Do you know?
