Who are those that have helped you to become awakened?:
Everyone, everywhere, my whole life. I would also like to thank everyone in charge of the illumination undertones in Hollywood, that's a nice touch, and helps people 'find their way home'
What is it that made you realize that this world is not as it seems?:
When all the memories in my mind and signs in my life painted the outlining of the bigger picture.
How have you applied this realization to your life?:
I live slightly differently, and am more aware of my thought processes, and receiving new direction. I am aware that people, places, things, and situations in my life are not coincidence. I look at everything differently, as if it were spiraling out of my own imagination, my own awareness.
When did this realization occur [if you can remember]?:
Off and on throughout my entire life, revealing itself one step at a time. I had a peak awareness that began December, 2008.
Why do you feel you have been called to be enlightened?:
I am not sure I know and understand this term to it's full extent, just as I believe I am not sure I can completely understand the entirety of the universe and all of it's glorious workings, but I believe enlightenment or illumination does not fully come until the body and spirit are aligned with the self. I hope to not reach the end, because I would love to continue to learn and grow, though I know that every person can achieve, it needs to happen. The sooner the better.
Namaste! I AM a meat popscicle What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious. if a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way.
I love my physical body because: It needs love, and deserves love in order to enjoy life, and be a servant of others. I also embrace my sexuality, it is a wonderful gift.
I love my mind because: It is the greatest mystery, and most wonderful entertainment I have come to know. My mind is a valuable tool that I hope to use wisely.
I love my spirituality because: I can connect to something higher, and the fact that I know it s real makes all the difference. Spirituality is the zenith of living.
I AM ONE with you because: We are conscious.
My personal alignment:
I AM Thankful to the Universe for the Powers of:
Intuition: I believe this to be a combination of experience, reasoning, guidance, and survival instinct. I hope to improve my intuition on a daily basis. Higher guidance is a part of my intuition. I want to use it in the best way possible, not to gain things for myself, but rather to immerse myself in a world of higher understanding so that I can be put in a position in this world that would make the universe proud.
Love: This involves my personal compassion, passion, care,dedication, selflessness, endearment, understanding,brotherhood and sisterhood, empathy, and my maternal instinct. Love needs to be the driving force behind as many decisions as we can muster.
Wisdom: The little treasures of truth we find along the way. My interpretation of wisdom is guidance coming from an already established truth, and it is something I seek on a daily basis. I am on a journey to find as much wisdom that I can, so that I can use it not only to satisfy my needs, but to serve others and help humanity.
What do you feel about organized religion and why has it gone astray?
Humanity needs to be afraid when we are led to believe that questioning our governing authorities or our church is wrong. Curiosity is a tool given to us, it is our instinct and our right. Curiosity is divine, especially when led by the divine.
How would you define your current philosophy?
My philosophy is a common philosophy I hope we can all share. It is the philosophy that through love and understanding, as well as courage and strong will we can improve our steps toward perfection, and connecting to the divine.
What talents and powers are you bringing to help expedite the process of global self-realization?
I'm using my spiritual family, inner guidance, imagination, strong will, intuition, power of persuasion, charisma, diplomacy, intelligence, and cut throat ability to make tough decisions. I am also counting on the law of attraction, the universe, my white rabbits, and sex appeal. Yeeah, I said it. In tough situations, it gets the job done. Now, meditate before I get my stilettos out!
Grace: Always having admired those with grace, I make it a point to admire my own grace when I see it. I see it in forms of peace, forgiveness, diplomacy, and it is truly something that exists in noble character.
Sexuality: Sexuality I believe is a wonderful thing that can include the act of sex, but the act of intercourse itself would be a limiting box to the wonders of sexuality. The act of sex can be designated for not just the participation in the act of creation, but it can encompass the act of love. Another thing about sexuality is this: Tantra can include the appreciation of sexuality and yet is not limited by sexuality alone. Here are some great quotes I found useful:
Is sex dirty? "Only if it's done right" Woody Allen
"Someday, after mastering the winds, tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of sexual love. Then, for the second time in history, we shall have discovered fire!" Teilhard de Chardin
"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." Rumi
"When she was good, she was very very good. And when she was bad, she was SENSATIONAL" Martin Hunting
"To get something done, first, you need the urge." D.A.M. Smith
"This yogi realizes that he is not bound by karmic actions, that no innate impurity or dependence exists, and that nothing nor nobody can deprive him of awareness. "Thus, imbued with a sense of the self as absolute awareness he embodies the divine." Abhinavagupta
Song of Astarte
Come this bloom time, As all flowers spread their folds to the sun. Come night flowers too. Sing me the sweet fragrance of sweet Lebanon And all those herbs of the moon. Break not these tiny beads of light... Alas, this liquid yet unheard of, that hums the hymns of Solomon, Relieving the sorrows of centuries whose cup does overflow, Thru the rivers and valleys to the land of Venus on whose mount does weep The Keening women of Babylon with trinkets upon their feet. "Behold! Behold! The majestic mount!" the common people chant. Basking in such slumberous sleep the sheep that they may count. Keeping them warm with muzzle soft, smooth muscle does relax. Such lull and groans, those slothful gnomes, devotion blind perhaps? yet along the shores of India's Nile and Egypt's Ganges fair, The fakirs climb the pyramids and the Pharaohs dread their hair. Come pack my pipe with Lebanon's weed, of such there's no despair. And we'll wonder the world amongst the herds as tho we had no cares.
I love having a sense of humor! A joke is a very serious thing. Winston Churchill
A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road. Henry Ward Beecher
A sense of humor... is needed armor. Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life. Hugh Sidey
A taste for irony has kept more hearts from breaking than a sense of humor, for it takes irony to appreciate the joke which is on oneself. Jessamyn West
A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life. William Ward
Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it. E.B. White
Comedy has to be based on truth. You take the truth and you put a little curlicue at the end. Sid Caesar
Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious. Peter Ustinov
Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing. William James
I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE... AND I ALSO BELIEVE:
IN ONENESS: WE ARE GREAT TOGETHER IN MY SPIRIT: I AM BEAUTIFUL, GIFTED, AND DIVINE IN MY FELLOW WAY-SHOWERS: IF WE LIGHT ANOTHERS PATH, OURS BECOMES BRIGHTER IN MY GURUS TO LIGHT THE PATH: THEY ARE GIFTED, EXTRAORDINARY, AND HAVE THE COURAGE NECESSARY IN MYSELF TO FOLLOW MY PATH: I WILL BE SHOWN THE WAY BY THE UNIVERSE, AND BY OTHERS WHO SHARE THIS JOURNEY IN LOVE AND COMPASSION: WITHOUT IT, I CAN'T IMAGINE MY OWN EXISTENCE, NOR MY OWN SPIRIT'S BETTERMENT IN THIS LIFE IN MANY DIMENSIONS: MY DREAMS AND EVEN PRESENT REALITY ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD, NOT TO MENTION MY HELP AND GUIDANCE IN TRANSFORMATION: IF CHANGE DID NOT EXIST, BUMS WOULD CERTAINLY NOT ASK FOR IT, AND OBAMA WOULDN'T STAND FOR IT I AM ILLUMINATION: I WOULD LOVE FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS, AND I AM ALWAYS HUNGRY FOR KNOWLEDGE I AM EXQUISITE AND BEAUTIFUL: THE HIGHEST BEAUTY ATTAINED IS WHEN BODY IS ALIGNED WITH MIND AND SPIRIT WE ARE REFLECTIONS OF THE CREATOR: SPILLING OUT IN OVER A MILLION DIFFERENT PLACES
THE UNIVERSE HAS MEANING, HAS CONSCIOUSNESS, AND HAS MYSTERIES TO BE UNFOLDED. MAYBE WE CAN UNDERSTAND ALL OF THEM, MAYBE WE CAN'T, BUT IT DOESN'T HURT TO TRY
THE TRUTH OF MY WORLD My soul, my star, my heart, my sun, my compassion, my moon

TRANSFORMATION: If you want to transform, the decision to transform is necessary. Once you make the decision and make this a part of your thinking, it is sure to happen. I believe transformation is the result of mental change. If you want to transform any part of your life, the mental decision and dedication is the first step.
BELIEFS & RELIGIONS: I believe in a supreme being, a higher power, and I call this higher power 'the universe,' though it doesn't fully describe it's wonders. The universe is connected to our minds.

From Three Parable of the Greedy Sons, p. 144-45, Tales of the Dervishes by Idries Shah (Octagon Press, 1967):
There was once a hard-working and generous farmer who had several idle and greedy sons. On his deathbed he told them that they would find his treasure if they were to dig in a certain field. As soon as the old man was dead, the sons hurried to the fields, which they dug up from one end to another, and with increasing desperation and concentration when they did not find the gold in the place indicated. But they found no gold. Realizing that in his generosity their father had given his gold away during his lifetime, they abandoned the search. Finally, it occurred to them that, since the land had been prepared, they might as well now sow a crop. [...] They sold this crop and prospered that year. After the harvest was in, the sons thought again about the bare possibility that they might have missed the buried gold, so they dug up their fields, with the same result.
After several years they became accustomed to labour, and to the cycle of the seasons, something which they had not understood before. Now they understood the reason for their father's method of training them, and they became honest and contented farmers. Ultimately they found themselves possessed of sufficient wealth no longer to wonder about the hidden hoard. Thus it is with the teaching of understanding of human destiny and the meaning of life. The teacher, faced with impatience, confusion and covetousness on the part of the students, must direct them to an activity which is known by him to be constructive and beneficial to them, but whose true function and aim is often hidden from them by their own rawness.
My thoughts on this article: There are two dynamics more often than not when it comes to the gifting of assets and estate to one's children when a mother or father passes on. One is the not so avid minds of children either regretfully (on behalf of guilt) taking it upon themselves to claim the assets left unto them, and the second is the grasping hand of an edacious and fortune seeking child that sees fit to go through any means necessary to obtain his rightful fortune. The intimation in the outline of this story hints at their selfish nature, and yet this did not deter their father from handing them the words that would supply them the fortune they would yet work for. On a rather remarkable thought, I deemed this story a brilliant read because it doesn't fall into the moral sack of "let's talk about the greed of the children," but it demonstrates the thoughtfulness of the father, and his wisdom in knowing that their natural self seeking minds would be an asset to them if applied in the right direction. Had they not been so seeking for the self, they would not have learned the lesson left to them. I think about this whenever we seek an answer, or a truth in something. Sometimes, the most precious thing to us can be our curiosity and in this curiosity and truth seeking nature don't you see gold as being similar to truth? The universe knows of those who are seeking answers, and knows how to apply and create everything in a way so that when we have dug deep enough, we not only have discerned what we were looking for, but we have managed to build our character according to a perfect lesson.
A Thread in Time By Jennifer
Searching for something edible in a sea of tasty words nouns resound in friendly rounds not sure if I've been heard
Penetrating aches becoming the not so distant calm what if this could not be kissed the absent words sounding wrong
No sound at all, nothing to grasp no exclamation to cause smile no absence of joy in my souls new deploy you can tell it's been a while
I searched for words, and I found many to satisfy curiosities and passion I've learned there's no time to hurry no need for "quick" or "hasten"
Time is quick in a gentle way the gentle spellbinding thread Any thread in time that's worth the while is worth all edible words unsaid
