Hey, thanks :)

I just wanted to say…. Thank you. Thank you for shining your light when you’re told it’s got to be put out. Thank you for showing me what it means to be brave. I notice every time you stand-up for the innocent and you protect the weak. Thank you for sharing your moments with me, the good and the rough. Thank you for letting me be a part of your story. If it was only for a season I’m most grateful for the privilege, but if it happens we find more I’ll be thankful for another score. Thank you for sharing the games of your heart and the music it speaks. Thank you for the gifts without expectation of a return. Thank you for the conversations that made me smile or question my own position. Thank you for helping me grow and be a better me. Thank you for the support, it’s always made me feel like a winner. Thank you for the smiles of your heart and all the love you gave. Thank you for the treasure box moments that filled my wellspring with youthful joy. But most of all…… Thank you for being you! I wouldn’t change a thing. ❤

Topsy-Turvy World

Where are the leaders we need, the ones who show a moral compass through their actions. Where are the leaders of morality, conscious of conscience? Where are the leaders who call for equitable relations between consumer and producer? Where are the angels of this world who uphold the law of honesty? Where are the leaders who provide the solace speech that will inspire love for all? Where are ones who foster understanding? Where are the leaders people emulate not for popularity, but because they desire a higher level of consciousness evolution? 

I’m told they reside on Capitol Hill, but I’ve been there and found none. It was suggested they roam the political offices of the state, city, and county. I looked for myself and I’ve seen them running the little towns of the Atlantic Coast, I’ve seen them driving big cities all the way to the Pacific, and I’ve watched them develop the forgotten towns of the Midwest. Yet none I have seen who use the Golden Compass.

Do you know where they hide? Have you seen them out in the open, walking the trails of life’s beauty? Did you talk to them when they passed or read the letters they wrote to the people of the world? Can you find them if you look? Do they live in your city or town? Would you know what you saw if they strode past? 

All of these questions I had to ask in order to understand for myself; the one I sought is found on the inside. It’s in each of us and, if we learn to listen, speaks from the wisdom locked deep within. The treasures it gives free of cost. I only had to learn to ask.

Dribble Drabble Drizzle: A Poetic Musing

Relentless exchange

Today I danced with loves’ reality, quirky and carefree. Each step leading to an unexpected rhythm that harmonized the melody of movement. I could feel it in my eyes, the joy of present moment living. I observed its reflection in smiles of acceptance and warmth, magically moving with timeless fluidity. It was the end of expectations. 

Treasure Box

Today I walked with a wolf who taught me to hunt love. 

First, master your thoughts for they are the might behind it all. 

Second, conquer yourself for it is your greatest adversary.

Finally, live in truth; it is your strongest weapon. 

If all these you accomplish, success will be your discovery. 

Courage

The silent voice only I know.

Talking from a place only I may go.

Giving me impulses with glimpses,

It’s a direction I may not know;

Nonetheless, it all will ebb and flow,

If only I learn to go. 

Workplace

The chaos of underdeveloped organizational practices. That pretty much sums it up. 

Today’s Chance

I met a man who I never knew. He had lost it all yet his smile showed no sorrow. In fact, most would say it was gay. He told me of his family and how he had lost them all. They weren’t dead, but chose to avoid him instead. I watched the flashes of rue meander his emerald fields. I could see he didn’t mind my knowing. He spoke of the relationships he ruined and the gifts he had lost. He never missed a beat and found a laugh at what his foolishness had cost. He said to learn from his mistakes was what made life so great. He spoke of his success and the life he lived with sparkling gems, making it hard for me not to grin. With every word he spoke I could feel the love it began to evoke. We talked for the remainder of the evening knowing the other we wouldn’t be seeing.

Plague Definition: n. A highly infectious, usually fatal, epidemic disease.

I came across some information on Covid in March after both my employers cancelled operations indefinitely, leaving me without a source of income. The article, a conversation between two individuals that is said to have taken place on the 3rd of February, 2020,  is published here. If the date of the conversation is accurate then it contains information that preceded discoveries by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and the WHO (World Health Organization). Subsequent information, from  the same source, was published on the 16th of March, 2020 regarding how COVID is spread, what we can expect to see, and what we may implement to help prevent the spreading of and contracting of the disease. During this research I also came across a news interview where a Mr. Micheal Horn mentioned COVID in a CBS interview. Mr. Horn also provided an absolutely brilliant idea on the 26th of April, 2020, which you will find here, on how to treat the pandemic while also creating economic stability. 

 

Since reading all the information there has been verification from the CDC and the WHO on many of the points outlined within. We can see the CDC was 100% inaccurate with their bold and outlandish claim of this virus being low risk to affecting America at large. So, I’m asking for help to provide this life saving information to the people. Especially parts about boosting your immune system. 

 

We have a choice; we can help educate and protect fellow human beings to help end this plague or we can wash our hands and emulate Pontius Pilate.

Can you see?

Can you see the world we live in? Fenced, gated, and sealed we hide with our possessions not letting any in. Our neighbors are foreigners to our lives and our love goes not beyond our border. We sit with empty, shallow consciousness oblivious to realities truth. It Is much more pleasant, easy, and welcoming to create our own version that fits within the parameters of our check a box lifestyle. Entertainment is always more enjoyable than the repugnant bitterness of a cold, harsh truth. So we smile at our ability to ignore, grow our uncaring with every pretend smile, and regress with each dismissal of any moment that we feel is negative. Not listening to each other with open, objective curiosity we hinder our own evolution. If the problem isn’t knocking at our door we aren’t opening it to see. We have sealed our senses to anything beyond our own enjoyment and harbored the darkness as friends. Can you see the world we live in?

Can you see the world we will create? Far beyond the current selfishness, a word removed from hatred, anger, and violence. A world where understanding prevails and neighbors have become loved, accepted as kin. I see the gentle kindness of consideration exemplified by all through compassionate listening. Morality has become intrinsically righteous. Iniquity is no longer known and leadership is filled with spiritual pursuit. The adage of “live and let live” has been replaced with “live and help live”. The energies given off from each other are peacefully joyous and welcoming. A stranger smiles at another stranger, each wanting nothing but love for the other. I see future generations who stop to help someone who has fallen, it matters not if they are strangers or friends to each other. I see a world where the flora and fauna thrive with renewed vigor. The animals are no longer going extinct due to habitat loss and climate change. They have become co-owners of this beautiful reality. I see how love has changed the world. Can you see the world we will create?

Thank you

You’ve shown me where you run when you don’t want to be found and you took me to where you hide when no one is around. Placing your warmth in mine, and holding hands we walked a scary line. You have shared your pain willingly even when you knew it would make me blue. All of these gifts from the heart you have given true.

Vulnerability, I’ll give it a go.

I was hoping to share with you my two core values, integrity and fairness. I came to this conclusion after about four solid days of reflection, sleuthing, and rummaging. I noticed most of my thoughts revolved around questions that spring from my core.

 

For instance, I ask myself “is this equitable for all parties involved, can I hold my head up and know that I was fair with myself, and am I able to look at myself without guilt” whenever I consider others, search for solutions, provide a collaborative effort, reflect on my actions towards another, consider another’s perspective, or implement a boundary (just to mention some). This is something that occurs so innately I forget it’s there. Like a predetermined hardwire derived from the root of my BEING. Fairness, like integrity, is a driver of who I am. 

 

Integrity is on that same innate level. It just presents itself as a thought. An example would be when I hear “you have to speak up because silence only wins guilts attention, negative that’s against my values, or you’re going to do the right thing when no one is watching because it’s the right thing. It’s challenging at times because it creates uncomfortable situations, but ultimately that leads to improvement. Just as doing the right thing when no one is looking leads to self love and self respect. 

 

So yeah, those are my two core values and a little of why I decided on them. It was super cool to discover this about myself. I found the entire process uplifting and empowering; It’s such a reward to understand ourselves a little better than we did the day before. I gave myself a real gift here. Definitely a treasure box moment.

“Curiosity is unruly. It doesn’t like rules, or at least, it assumes that all rules are provisional, subject to the laceration of a smart question nobody has yet thought to ask. It disdains the approved pathways, preferring diversions, unplanned excursions, impulsive left turns. In short, curiosity is deviant. Pursuing it is liable to bring you into conflict with authority at some point, as everyone from Galileo to Charles Darwin to Steve Jobs could have attested.”

Auspicious Beginnings

 

It began at midnight. You were sitting diagonally from me on a large square seat wearing a happy new year hat that reminded me more of birthday attire. There were two to our left holding hands as we all counted down. 10……….9……….8………. When we reached one our eyes met for a fleeting second before you leap and embraced me with a kiss. My heart fluttered with excitement and everything was beautiful.

What Hurts Most?

Corrective, self-criticism,; that’s what hurts most.

Ever find yourself being overly critical of something you have done? For me it generates some pretty extreme feelings e.g., remorse, regret, disappointment, disgust, dissatisfaction, self-loathing, guilt, sorrow, etc. etc. These feelings then create thoughts such as, “you acted like an idiot” or maybe “you screwed up”, which then trigger more feelings like the previously mentioned. This is, if I am honest with myself, my conscience trying to help me learn. It doesn’t want me to suffer and it doesn’t want me to hurt, but it does want me to know the truth. Which isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. When I accept this I learn something about what not to be or do. Plus It’s kind of cool to get plus two attribute points towards volition.

There’s a catch though. I have to listen. Not superficially, but LISTEN by asking questions in order to understand. So when I hear, “you acted like an idiot” I reply “How?”. Then continue the conversation until it arrives at a mutual accord (harmony). This is the bittersweet aspect for me. I have understood the wrong, accepted it, and show it through my actions. 

Sometimes this can take a minute though. metaphorically speaking of course. In fact, at times it doesn’t flow like above. That’s a best case scenario. There are times when I hear, “you acted like an idiot” and I reply “No I didn’t” and rationalize it with some bogus, over the top justification. I found that this approach will prolong a grief period; I have tasted victory. 

I write to inspire my moral conduct and expedite those things I define as auspicious, e.g., forgiving myself.

Kindled Passion

If needs you have unsatisfied bring them forth.

I will give reception, verily and brazenly.

We shall sail to the edges of understanding,

Passion and reason our rudder and sail.

Our work, from love and one another,

Will sow seeds which produce the tenderest fruit.

We can give of ourselves with striving eternal,

Igniting the flame of enchanted hearts.

Finding no fear in the seeking,

we remove the shell of pain.

So come, let us go with the wind

Knowing our needs will change,

But our love need naught.
