Stop. Please.

7 Jul

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.”

Go Boldly, Find and Understand Self-Worth

16 Jun

I am grateful to be able to have tangible reminders of where I came from, what I help create, and all the actual blood, sweat, and the continuous river of tears that twists, curls, curves, rambles, and wanders, within me every step of my way.

I am also grateful to have the wisdom to know when it is time to embrace the new day, to transform and to take my blood, sweat and river of tears, boldly into the new world that I am now able to see and find beauty and worth in, out, under, over, and through it’s every cell.

Not everyone can define their self-worth and the import of their life. That is simply the way of the human mind and spirit. And that is that. It is what it is. However, I can proudly reaffirm, at every twist and turn that this incredible Earth allows me, and I allow myself, to see, experience and learn from, that “I go boldly into every new conception of our world with awe, wonder, and gratefulness!” Nature has given me fucking phenomenal sight and I will never waste it on NOT transcending, moving forward, and learning to embrace every stage that Life in all Her unknowable (at this time) intelligence hath created.

I look back, often, at what I created, what I help create, what I changed and what I help change, and remember the sparkling winding red river of life that I chose to drink from…now an empty riverbed. I do not mourn, or whine, or attack others because the brilliant crimson vein has dried up. No, I simply appreciate the sparkling winding red river that I choose to drink from now.

Here are some pics, not even a sliver of what I did and where I came from, representing that once dazzling ruby river…now a dried, cracked, unable to support life, empty bed filled with tourists.

Sacrifice

27 May

Sacrifice

Someone just asking me about my early days as a Wytch. This discussion brought back up, in my mind, my days and nights, of magik, in my early twenties. What I remember the most about that long ago time of learning and applying and changing, is sacrifice. And so, we discussed it’s true meaning and application within the real world.

While I now live in a state of being that I understand as a life lived indigenously borne from the same magik that is my mind, body, and energy, as all life; and not as a life lived practicing magik, my comprehension of what sacrifice, especially as it relates to conjuring or ritual or whatever label you deem appropriate for your path and focus; is more often than not, completely misunderstood and not actually achieved.2016-11-11 15.32.54

First and foremost, “sacrifice” must be defined and understood, genuinely and absolute. You can not buy something off of a shelf, have no emotion invested in it, and then use it as a sacrifice. What have you sacrificed? If you use the term offering, the same logic is applied. If you buy a bottle of alcohol to be used as an offering for whichever spirit or deity you have chosen as your focus, and are not offering anything of real personal, emotional, value, what have you actually offered?

While I no longer, for sometime now, perceive magik as something to be practiced or conjured or ritualized, I understand that almost all of us start there. Some of us never move past that infant-like understanding of magik. A good place to start your personal transcendence from the habitual parroting of others conceptions of what they may or may not have actually achieved; is to look more closely at and figure out, for yourself, what a real sacrifice consists of.

Maybe, one day, before your current life extinguishes from this Earth, you will move on from mimicking and/or practicing magik and realize, in the rawness of your truest core, that you are already born magik and that there is not really a need to conjure or execute magik.

Just be it, just know it. The same way you just know you are a Human (no matter what kind of human you believe you are). You know it with every breath you breathe. So, too, you should know you are magik…with every breath you breathe.

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.

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.”

Self-Respect

19 Apr

I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and incur my own abhorrence. Self-respect cannot be hunted. It cannot be purchased. It is never for sale. It cannot be fabricated out of the media/public relations. It comes to us when we are alone, in quiet moments, in quiet places, when we suddenly realize that knowing the good, we have done it, knowing the beautiful, we have served it; knowing the truth, we have spoken it and put it into action.

It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgement, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character, lack of truth and honor within the soul.
