Here’s to the women


Unknown-1

This is for all the strong women out there who are sick and tired of having to explain themselves or endlessly apologize just for being who they are, and doing what they do.

Here’s to all the women who are tired of being weighed and measured and found to lacking in your eyes, stop looking at us.

Here’s to all the women who are sick and tired of being pulled down by other women. If you cannot see the worth in knowing and championing strong women, step back before we mow you over.

Here’s to all the women who are sick and tired of being pulled down by the men around them. Hey you, if cannot see the worth in championing strong women, step back because we are going to mow over you.

Creative juices


Unknown

Here’s a shout out to all the artist out there struggling to get their message out of their head and into the real world. It’s not easy to keep facing that blank canvas, or that blank piece of paper, or that blinking cursor on the computer screen. Wanting to say something and having something to say can be two very different things. The only way to get through it is to just do it. You can always destroy the work after it’s out of you. But get the work out.

In all things in life, it is the time you put into working at it that reaps rewards. Even “bad” art is better than no art. Saying something is better than keeping it bottled up. But to keep the creative juices flowing you have to use them.

Everything we do and the how we do it reflects the art of our lives. The way we dress, how we keep our house, shows you are an artist, you may just have never looked at it like that.

When people forget that life is art then ugliness steps up. We become frustrated in our personal lives and in relationships. We lose a piece of ourselves when we stop seeing art, especially when we stop making art. That creative flow is how God can be reflected inside of us. The way we see things, how we feel about things, all the messages contained in our art.

We are all artist, making art in the choice of our career or hobby. Some are secret poets and song writers, frustrated chefs, and unknown interior designers, unseen dancers and sport stars  Whether anyone else sees it or knows it really doesn’t matter. Its the work and somehow we just keep doing it. We have to!

So as I struggle to sit here in front of my screen working on my next project I feel the struggle of all the other frustrated artists before me and in the other apartments around me. The creative juices are flowing all over the place. May they flow all over me!

The Spirituality of magical thinking


Unknown

I read the New York Times every morning, I watch the news, I listen to radio, I keep my ear to the ground in order to best know where to put the energy of my magical thinking. I do not look on bad news as bad because there is a spin in the news to illicit emotional responses, or to instill fear and hopelessness. Just another attempt of the ignorance of darkness to wrap itself around our thinking minds, coloring how we feel and think. No thanks, I will do it for myself. There is no judgment in this thinking but rather a decision made to lift the veil of ignorance and do the job of sending healing light.

The middle east is struggling and the violence towards women increased and horrifying, as I hope you are well aware. While we make think it nothing because it is over there and their problem, it is really a microcosm look at what is going on with the power of women to reassert themselves. It is also happening with racial and sexual/gender equality, people are trying to find their voice and others are working to shut them up.

The violence is a pushback from the old guard not wanting to relinquish control. A control that is not real but in the minds of men, feels real enough. The thought we are all one, only works when everyone, EVERYONE, finally believes it and begins to treat each citizen as an important part of our collective human family. Each member, uncle what’s his name, geeky aunt betty and bossy grandma Em, and all those killing off women and children in every neck of the woods. There is not a dominate sex, or a correct gender, or a right color, or one view of truth in religions desire to control the thoughts of the masses.

Magical thinking and the quantum field teach that through the energy of thought, any thought can move and it affects humanity. With enough people thinking the corrected thought, we are all one, we are our brother’s keeper, and there by the grace of God go I, these thoughts will move through humanity. Hundredth monkey principal. They will cause change. Thoughts are energy in motion, like the riot mentality you see in crowds easily motivated through rough emotions, that the same energy can be gathered to encourage the upliftment of a negative thought form flowing unabated over our world affecting those to weak to control their own emotions.

The humans overwhelmed by emotions are not seeing correctly and old world beliefs can be hard to dislodge from a disenfranchised group of people who have no hope. When the men of the mid-east and frankly other places as well, are so afraid of allowing women their own thoughts, identities and way of expression of life, what can their thinking be? This is just ignorance.

We all improved when each human has a voice and a correct compass setting in their heart. We as a collective have enough knowledge to know that money is not the answer it has produced greed and the negative thought form that taking what you want, at the expense of others is just fine, destroying the world, just fine, killing, poisoning, bombing, lying, just fine. NOT FINE!

We are a collective, face it, we are, we are lifted together and brought down together, it is the work of those who have gone past the world of illusion and see the truth. That those who seek to control are not our friend. Those who seek to manipulate, not our friend, we must open our eyes, and see. And then be the opposite. We can use the collective mind to enhance those who ignorance can not be helped through regular means, to far away from truth, to influenced by negative beliefs, worn out notions of the have and have-nots. We, as our own consciousness rises, see above the fray, past the ignorance, into the darkness, so that we through our own meditative work can send light. Just like that.

It is magical thinking. It is the kind of easy change that can change the world and how others treat humanity and the earth itself. The ignorance of those who can not step away from the smallness of their mind to even glimpse the higher worlds of light need our help. It is within our reach, would we but believe it. I  use magical thinking all of the time. And now its time to use that magical thinking to help lift the ones struggling.

In my mind’s eye I see light reaching into the mind and hearts of these men, so that they may feel and see that each women killed, is a mother, sister, daughter, of someone, and every child killed was the potential of God on earth, each child, each individual, carries the spark of the creator. It would be wise to see God in everyone. Because God sees itself in all of us and those who would seek to change this view might want to check their thinking.

Now to the women, we women have a responsibility to our sisters and daughters struggling. Spend time in your prayers and meditation in a nonjudgemental way to speak to the creator of this, Creator knows, probably hopes we want to know, and that we want to assist to heal not assist to hurt. We lift ignorance through our concentrated effort of lifting humanity through the use of light. See the world surrounded by the purest bright light, that lets God do the work but it gives God the sign we are ready for the work to begin.

It is time for the women to rise. It is magical thinking. It is using the spirit of God to help, to heal, to be apart of the solution of bringing peace to earth. It is magical thinking and only a few steps away.

It’s time for humanity to rise!
