Believe It Or Not, Those Walls Of Personal Statuses Can Be Surprisingly Inclusive, Even Enlightening

Ever awaken with anxiety and dispair?
You probably wouldn’t think that reading a wall of social media statuses would improve your mood,
but within a matter of brief minutes, here are some beautiful ones of note:

the funny thing about enlightenment is that it looks just like being crazy, only way to differentiate between a madman and a buddha, is by the actions.

Just wrapping up the very last tail end of these Christmas hampers (4 days of insanity coming to a close!), and I have one last family in need who needs a hamper delivered. If anyone is around today with a car and feels like delivering a box of fresh wholesome food and gifts to an apartment in east van, please let me know! Sometime between now and noon. ♥

Never think you are right.
To be right is to be wrong. I am even wrong in saying never think you are right. At the moment you feel justified, it is taken and you experience truth. At the edge of this “knowing” we become aware that we do not know. That knowing is only a movement of change and force to know not knowing.
And in not knowing we submerse ourselves in the rich reality of life’s duality. Conversations become connections, arguments become lessons, perspectives become awareness. We realize our lucidity as we except our vulnerability…within and with each other. So I am not right and you are not wrong, we are just dancing in the midst of awareness.

To community, real love, encouragement, and support!
May these and more positive life engagement be our focus the new year and forever.

The House, As It Should Be (Creating The Spaces for Creative Communities to Express, Develop, Nuture, and Grow)

Fucking awesome.
I’m feeling super fucking inspired after hanging with LD tonight. Art is everything, art is on the way.
Create the space for creativity. Nothing else matters. Work, loss, love, jealousy, it’s all just a waste of time, it’s all just distraction from what really matters: EXPRESSION. Creating the space that encourages people to express themselves. We do not foster creativity in our society unless it directly relates to generating sales. Creativity is rewarded or appreciated or encouraged to improve the bottom line or some such business/marketing diatribe bullshit.
What has been lost is the positivity that is created from feeling vindicated by expression. By feeling that even if no one “gets it,” they still listen, they still watch, they still participate, they still give feedback. We are all lost and confused and frustrated and depressed because our world is WRONG. It values things and concepts and ideas that do not nurture our souls, that do not develop communities. What are we encouraged to do in life? We are encouraged to choose a field, train in it, and then fight everyone around us. To beat our peers. Not to work together, but to see each other as enemies. To do our damndest to see them fail so that we can advance. This is what is encouraged, this is what our parents and teachers and bosses want us to do.
And what is happening is that we are growing into a world of cold, lonely individuals. Social media and reality tv and streaming internet vids have all come at the perfect time – just as we might have been catching on that we are so desperately lonely and should probably rethink how we live life and what our priorities should actually be, we have been fed amazingly addictive distractions.

No more.

Thank you Luciana, this came at an incredibly perfectly pivotal time.

Stay tuned.
