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?

Selflessness…Que?

9 May

Selflessness Meme 2018 Signed

Excerpt from “A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies”
Coming this October 2018

“Transcendence, like evolution, is an ongoing and gradual process throughout the cycle of life. Concerning the act of human selflessness, to offer help to others without tangible gain but instead the gain of feeling good about yourself and the act of help you have offered, is a natural part of our spiritual evolution.

Perhaps it might take someone an entire lifetime, or, perhaps it might never come to pass, but through our continued transcendence, we are able to offer, at least once, an act of true selflessness. Which is not in any way a guarantee that the payoff will be one of self-love, or any kind of happiness gained for ourselves from a selfless act. In fact, quite often, at least in my experience, pain and being reviled by the same people your selfless act has helped, is the outcome.

Only you, most likely, will ever know the sacrifice that might have been made so that your act of transcended selflessness could reach its target and create real positive change. Boasting about it or in some way, making sure others know about it, is, in itself, a sign that a spiritual evolutionary deed of selflessness has not yet occurred.

And that is why transcendence is an ongoing and gradual process. The first stages of human understanding and behavior must be lived before we can move onto the next stage and continue to transcend.”

Only Human?

7 May

“I’m only human, after all. ”
Correction…
“After all, I’m human, fuck yeah, bitches! ”

To be human, regardless of which kind, is a spectacular gift, no matter your belief system or lack thereof.

We must first understand our own humanity before we attempt to understand any other aspects of ourselves and/or our world. Yes?

Living Courageously

7 May

You can apply this to almost any part of your life. You must do that which scares you, sometimes that which scares you the most. My entire life has been very, very, scary, on many different levels. It is so ingrained in me now that if I’m not facing hardship, disaster, horror, or cruelty from others, I think that something is wrong and I have to keep myself from trying to go and find trouble, LOL.

But this quote is the truth. You must, even if you get knocked down hard, do that in your life which scares you a little or even a lot. This you can absolutely trust me about. I am living proof of that which should have been dead and buried long ago, literally.

Have a wonderfully productive day…perhaps you will have a life changing day.

Living courageously is more than mere words in a Social Media post. You must actually know how to live…well. You must reach down deep inside and discover your courage.

Living Awake…is Pain…Do it Anyway!

7 May

For Ariel 2 WordPressI just want to take a moment and thank my children, Ariel Martin, Xray Teddy, and Andre Martin, for choosing to live their lives awake, no matter how painful that reality can be.

Our world…my world…is “blessed” by your choices to keep becoming that which you choose. Sometimes, people choose to become apathetic, ignorant (stay ignorant), delusional, live in a fantasy world, or just be a piece of shit…simply because it is easier.

Not you three. You challenge the worlds status quo constantly. You challenge my own self-defeating bullshit. I am beyond grateful and I love all of you beyond any conception of mundane parental love. In that, you can believe.

Thank you, respectively and humbly, not only as your mom but as a current resident upon this amazingly beautiful Earth.

Blood’s Truth, Finds New Home in the Abyss

20 Apr

Re-post from my FB account:

Probably the last excerpt I will ever share from my book:

Page 88
The verity of time shall remember you as a child full of fear and imagined grace, a hollow husk, if you are remembered at all. And so, to you, in a sanguine whisper, Life utters, “Terminate your torment of love unsatisfied, of a life unfulfilled. Where shall this libber of souls be found? Where will the truth resound? Not here, not in the arms of ego and cultivated ignorance. There is not enough silence.”

Go into the sable forest, if you can bare the reality, and live among the “beasts” and “monsters.” Eat from the ruby apple, embrace your pain and tear the diseased veil of false-hoods from your rotting pulp.

This informational post is meant for those that care…
My apology. I forget, when I am writing, not everyone lives inside my head, Lol. I am pulling “Blood’s Truth,” off the shelf, not for a lack of sales or positive reviews. I am doing so for what I believe is the greater good, for all. Perhaps not my call to make, but there it is, it is made.
“A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies,” is still coming out this October. Thank you everyone for your concern. I am, as always, truly appreciative. 🙂

I am pulling my book, “Blood’s Truth,” off the shelves. I am having 100 copies printed, delivered to me and stored away for another generation…maybe, perhaps I will just bury them deep in the abyss.

Thank you beyond what I can convey in this Social Media post, to all those who believed in me and my work, and supported my book, no matter what.
