Be the Change: 02.16.2017

Be the change that you wish to see in the world. If something isn’t getting done that you think should be done, be that change. Create that niche that fills in that Gap. You are a powerful being. You have your own power, and you can use it to make great wonderful change.

You can sit on that couch, and watch the news, but what does it accomplish? You can talk to your friends, be angry, be hurtful, be fearful, and be hateful, but who benefits from these emotions? What can you accomplish with these emotions? You can take to the streets and show the world that you’re unhappy. But what does it accomplish?

I talked with a young woman this week. She holds her anger, her fear, and holds her frustration, and it affects her body. She says the white man is a problem. She says that this country is lost. She says that this country is not worth the effort. She holds her anger, and her fear, and her hate for that which she does not understand. Is there room for love with all of that floating on?

We are beautiful beings. We have beautiful souls. Each and every one of us has a soul. Each and every one of us has lessons that we have to learn, that we agreed to learn when we came to this life. Each and every one of us, regardless of whether or not we believe, is a child of the Divine. We have a piece of the Divine in each and every one of us. We have the power to change the world. But in order to change the world, we have to change ourselves. And the rest of the world will follow. 

But to do that requires a choice. It requires you to take a stand.  To take a stand not in Anger, not in fear, and not hate. Let’s take a stand in love,  in joy, in celebration of who you are. In celebration of what you hope to accomplish. Because if you are not celebrating what you’re hoping to accomplish, what are you doing it for?

Change is happening. Change is happening all around us. Change is happening on a metaphysical level. Change is happening within our political structure. Change happening within our governments. Change is happening in the very nature of itself. How are you adapting to that change? How are you accomplishing adapting to that change? Are you evolving with that change? Or are you stuck in the frustration against that change? 

All it requires is a choice, follow through, and dedication. The world is changing, you can change with it, or be rolled over. Because whether or not you’re ready for it, it’s coming. You can participate, you can lead, or you can stand aside, or you can be run over. But it’s up to you. 

What is your choice?

I am Note: 02/12/2017

I am not my skin color.

I am not my eye color.

I am not my body shape.

I am not my spirituality or religion.

I am not my orientation.

I am not any of the things that would mark me different.

It doesn’t matter if you are White, Black, Asian, Indian, Native, Mixed, Islander, etc.

It doesn’t matter  if you have brown, blue, green, or hazel eyes.

It doesn’t matter if you are tall, round, short, skinny, pear, triangle, or oval shaped.

It doesn’t matter if you are Christian, Muslim, Wiccan, Pagan, Hindu, etc.

It doesn’t matter if you are Straight, Bi, Lesbian, Gay or Ambiguous.

You are not the sum of what makes you different.

You are the sum of what makes you, YOU.

I am Human.

I am soul.

Regardless of how you feel about some one, remember whether they are the most prejudicial person on the planet or an innocent baby, they have a soul.

They may not be learning the same lessons you are meant to, but they have lessons to learn too.

Your lesson may just be in part to accept the things and people you cannot change, and release them in love.

The World may be insane, but YOUR World does not need to be, unless you let it be.

Things I enjoy: 02/10/2017

I enjoy having a clean sink in the morning.  It makes me comfortable, because it’s not something waiting to get done.

I enjoy cleaning once a week.  It makes my home healthier by decreasing the cat fur and dander, and allows me to freak the cats out a little.

I enjoy taking random photographs and sharing them.  I enjoy this because of the many likes and comments on them.  It’s like having little windows of a moment in time of random things and creatures in my life.

I enjoy keeping track.  This allows me to see how much progress has been made, and what has been done recently, or needs to be done.

I enjoy creating schedules.  I never really thought about it, honestly I thought people who had schedules were nuts.  Because WHY?  But it actually pays to have at least the to do list or/and the schedule/goals written.

I enjoy purging.  I’ve been purging in little and big ways for years.  Now I have a goal and a reason.  Knowing that, helps me work towards that goal going forward.  When I’m done purging, I’m hoping that I’ll have what is important to me, and holds meaning in my space and with my eventual partner.

I enjoy quiet now, almost as much as music.  Each offers its own peace.

I enjoy meal replacement shakes.  It makes things easy and fast and nutritious.  And it ensures that I get 2 meals a day easily.   I enjoy making a least one meal.

I enjoy flannel.  Nice soft warm flannel.

I enjoy my home.  I love the location.  I love the environment.  I enjoy the aloneness.

But I am ready for a change.

Unconditional Love: 2.7.2017

What would happen, if we saw everything with unconditional love?  What would happen, if we acted with unconditional love? What would happen, if instead of individual issues or causes, we just took up the mantel of unconditional love? Unconditional for each other, for our homes, for our countries and others, and for our Earth?

What if we saw each other with unconditional love?  What if we saw each other not by color, or class, or religion, or ethnicity, or profession?  What would happen? What would happen, if we saw, felt, and acted with unconditional love in all things?  Would it make a difference what the cause was? 

What would happen?  What type of legislation would we see?  What type of care of our people would we see? What type of action would we have? 

What type of World would we live, if we acted out of love and compassion towards ourselves, each other, and our environment? If we worried not of the color of our skin, the religion that we follow, the class that we are in, the education we have had, or the profession we work?  

Unconditional love could unite all under one banner, and with it, we could move mountains. Because it wouldn’t matter the cause, would it?

Random thought thread of a waking mind.

I Was Thinking: 2.04.2017

I was thinking today about the many issues that are at the Forefront of our minds these days. There are so many issues from the presidency as it is, to the environment, to Racial equality, to gender equality, the class equality, there’s just so many. I think that we need to choose just one. Just one issue.

Talk about it, create conversation about it, think about it, research it, what is it going to effect, where is it going to go, look at the consequences, look at the benefits, excetera. If it’s still an issue that is important to you or to the many, then take that one issue, and move forward with a unified heart, a unified goal in a unified mind. When you win, then take up the next issue, and do the same. Create discussion, create debate, create conversation, create Middle Ground. 

Have an open mind,  have an open heart. Don’t look at other people’s differences, look at your similarities. You may be shocked to learn that there are people out there on both sides of the coin that believe as you. But unless we are willing to work together, we are not going to be able to function as a nation. We are not going to be able to heal this Rift that has existed for 8 years, if not longer. We have lost the ability to talk to each other without yelling, without being angry, without being frustrated, and without being fearful.

When you invite your friends to share their thoughts,  listen to them with an open heart,  and leave your anger,  frustration,  and fear at the door.  Talk to them.  Listen to what they have to say.

Breathe. Let Go.  

I Love The Snow: 1.30.2017

I love the snow. I love that white fluffy little blanket that covers their. I love that insulates the Earth to protect the things that grow in the earth. I love it when it snows nice and deep, because then you have this nice fluffy white blanket, and a soft Landing. I love the winter. I love the way things slow down in the winter. I love not really starting new things in the winter. I love contemplating the things that worked and the things that didn’t. I love the rest that winter brings. I love the contemplation that winter brings. I love it when I can open my curtains and even though it’s cloudy outside, it’s bright inside, because of the reflection of the light off the snow.

And most of all I love kitten cuddles with my little kitty mischief.
