when will we get Home?
who will be here?
why do we still sit in judgement? Current Mood: sad

after some intense, dramatic deals with g-d re: death of my father, i'm investigating the nature of prayer. i don't think that it should be a request or a demand, certainly not a bargain...
because g-d never asked us to sacrifice flesh or plants! does not want our bloody offerings!
i'm thinking that maybe we should put our focus on being grateful, and trust in continued blessings. like "i am grateful that you keep me safe, universe, and i trust that you will continue to do so" instead of "please keep me safe! i'll be good." it might be elementary to others, but it was a big lightbulb moment for me.

The Witch of Portobello seems to be online on Paulo's website. He's very open with sharing, it's wonderful.
I haven't checked to make sure this is the entire book, but i wouldn't be surprised if it was. Either way, i've found 9 chapters so far.
i think this is all something we can benefit from, it has helped me grow incredibly.http://en.paulocoelhoblog.com/witch-of-portobello/21.02.2007/first-chapter/

Some things that I've been enjoying
Here are some things I've been enjoying lately. Maybe you'll like them too. :)
* Free Will Astrology
I love Rob Brezsny's weekly horoscopes. I look forward to them every week. He's written a book called "Pronoia" which is just delicious. He describes Pronoia as the opposite of Paranoia and how the universe is trying to shower you with blessings.
* Notes From the Universe
I get these in my inbox every weekday. You enter some information about what you're trying to manifest and they send you short emails from 'The Universe' dealing with intention-manifestation, non duality, and all around goodness.
* Free Rice
games and games that help people are the best kind. Basically, it's a vocabulary game. They give you a word and you guess what it means. For every word you get right, they'll donate 10 grains of rice to hungry families, paid for by the ads near the bottom of the screen. It's a fun game and it definitely adds up. You can even see how much rice has been donated by viewing the totals.
This is a little more random, but this has been so good for my creative life. Most people use it from random little updates on what they're doing. I find it's been good for me to get my creativity flowing. I post little snippets from stories I'm working on when the mood strikes me and little thoughts I have through the day. It's quicker than journaling because I'm normally closer to the computer than my paper journal. Current Mood: cheerful

Groups are very important because they force us to progress. If you're alone, all you can do is laugh at yourself, but if you're with others, you'll laugh and then immediately act. Groups challenge us. Groups allow us to choose our affinities. Groups create a collective energy, and ecstacy comes more easily because everyone infects everyone else.

What hurts you, blesses you.
Darkness is your candle.
Your boundaries are your quest.
I can explain this, but it would break
the glass cover on your heart,
and there's no fixing that.

we are building in energy. the shift comes swiftly in this fast approaching night. be wary. reconnect to all other variables across the board and take control again. it is not so hard, theyre just good at making us forget. have faith, in other words just Know if you catch my drift. one thing to remember always is that because we chose to ascend with light we are always connected and we are always one. all are equal. good luck.

to those people in winnipeg, i was hoping we could gather and celebrate halloween together. like a potluck with rituals. a feast for our ancestors. i am tired of lame parties and trick or treating, and i would like to mark an important part of the calander in a proper pagan way for once. im sure many of you have plans, but i am just putting this out there. if there is interest i will organize.

dooms day online
so we have started our comic! she goes! we just dont have a site up yet, but i am trying to pimp it out and i thought who would be better to read this story then you stars? it is about ragnorok in th 22nd century - two priestesses with the power of the primordial gods destined to defeat the Grandmother Demon that devours the world on Dooms Day - and two Gods of the new and brilliant pantheon whose race has brought the curse of the old gods upon the entire world. Together they are joined by ancienct prophecy to follow the steps of Ragnorok, and hopefully save thw world.
It's a good story. We have been working on it since highschool now and although my artwork isnt great, my partner's computating skills make up for it! So please come see!
(and to those that might be mad at me for posting this in this community - i would like to point out that this story encompasses many mythological and spiritual lessons and plays with the ideas of 2012. just a disclaimer ^_^) Current Mood: bouncy

for the rest
(ps i know this is not what this forum is for i just wanted to show more people cause im proud and desperate for a photoshop user willing to do a few pictures for me now and again! i love you all!) Current Mood: creative

My favourite part:"Going through and embracing our wound as a part of ourselves is radically different than circumnavigating and going around (avoiding), or getting stuck in and endlessly, obsessively recreating (being taken over by) our wound. The event of our wounding is simultaneously catalyzing a deeper (potential) healing process which requires our active engagement, thus “wedding” us to a deeper level of our being."

to all of my dear friends, I need you right now. I need you all to pray and send your energy to my stepmom, who really needs it right now.
I love and appreciate you all, thankyou.

music makes me happy. today my theme is (Goddamn RIght) Its a Beautiful Day - The Eels. Current Mood: curious
what's yours today little stars?
|Tuesday, July 17th, 2007|
to you stars that sit in dark places, or in the light of sun, talking of changes and a power greater than the hate that is destroying us all -
stop sitting. start moving.
here in winnipeg i am calling for those of Us to Gather. we cannot sit on our high principals anymore without having done something in our lives to start the Change. we cannot simply wait anymore, for a fire untended often has a way of burning out and blowing away as ashes. i am not a leader, and i cannot pretend to be, so i call to my Clan - let us come together and Start before it ends.
do you want to be 80 years old, living in a world that you could have made better, and had the chance, and sat quietly and did nothing? i cannot. i will not die without knowing that all the things i believe are good and true in the world are protected and made stronger, and those things that do our entire race and world harmed, are made smaller and lessened. come with my Brothers, Sisters. i will hold the lamp, but i cannot find the way without you. Current Mood: determined

when the man comes around
the tide ebbs and flows, we all know this, and i am fighting the ebb right now. within my mind flows and burns, rivers of magma running between the folds of greymatter. outterly, my body ebbs, grows tired, my new mask slips and i the Eternal Lelio struggle to fit on a new one.
the cottage was wonderful, i can feel the rising of my Beta like status, which i am going to be making a survey for for you Stars later. the point is i have a feeling that sooner than i though the Mega Beta within me is going to get pissed off and, folks, lock up your Sinful Children, the Man is Coming Round.
now back to my tea and saucer. ^_^ Current Mood: armageddonouttahere

it has become very apparant (not that i didn't already know, rather that it is becoming increasingly... something) that there is quite the darkness in me. Yet i can't seem to access it. Is it all around me? is it not actually there? both? neither?inaccessable
I have been informed about a pre-rainbow gathering gathering on salt spring island which is only two hours away from here... getting there wouldnt' be difficult, i've been told... unless you're me. yes, i understand this is a choice. I could excercise my thumb muscles and my hate for being cold (and quite possibly wet) and force all this fear out of me and possibly go hungry and possibly have an incredibly amazing adventure.
The gathering is a Healing Gathering, and a way to celebrate the summer solstice (the 21st for those of you who dont' know). It only goes from june21-23 (the gathering) but my plane leaves on june27.
I am torn.
this could take the dark out of me.
nothing can take the dark out of me.
there is no dark in me.
so then, why oh why am i shrouded in this cloak? Why am i only allowed moments of clarity? I should give myself credit, we should all give ourselves more credit. For i am in the waking world, and i am in the dreaming world... though which and when? and for how much?
is it me resisisting change? i'm not entirely clear as to which way the change winds want to blow.sit back and relax
relax relax relax
everything will be better tomorrow as it was yesterday.
love to all of you.
this didn't quite end up where i thought it would, but where it DID end up is.don't get me wrong, it seems my ability to experience extreme negative emotions has... drifted elsewhere. I am generally happy... at least a little bit. i like myself. at least a little bit (it changes from day to day as all things must) and i am constantly surprised at my ability to ... be a person. not be angry. not hate myself. My excuses are running out and soon enough i will have no reason but to simply up and go. go where? maybe "to go" means emotionally. maybe it means physically. maybe it means stay put, i'm not sure... but i am so much further than i've been. "at least i'm moving" someone said to me last night at a drumming circle - where i drummed until i lost myself and found i'm quite excellent at it!

sometimes, my friends, 'surveys' are more telling then one might think. i certainly learned a lot from the one on my birthday. please continue to fill it out if you havent. it is very interesting to me. Current Mood: contemplative
