If they say cleanliness is next to Godliness, then creativity is next to spirituality.
I needed to destroy the false “me” that I created to survive humanity and give re birth to the “me” that was born from the spirit.
The deeper my internal life, the bigger my external life.
The more feelings that I can tolerate, the nicer my life becomes
It makes sense that the planet has run amok.
How arrogant is it to hate the beauty that was created?
It’s that human hatred that takes us off the path. If we hate ourselves and our bodies that will manifest outwardly. If we love ourselves, love will manifest in our home, our bodies and on our planet.
Humility is greatness.
It starts with the internal life of all individuals, who are connected.
Think about it- art connects people because it touches something inside them.
So we all have to destroy this false self and find the true spirit.
We are all the same inside it’s how we express that commonality that makes us authentic.
And then, that commonality is what connects us.
It’s not until we pull in, that we can pulsate out.
Stars do it, people do it , everything does it, because we are all the same and there is a natural rythem to life: a heart pump, pumped by breath, if you will.
Kids are pure but we adults hate that purity because this false world has created rules that have nothing to do with spirit. Rules that are never achievable.
Because the only rule is love, the beauty of the spirit, and it’s is always here, the human makes things ugly if not treated with the respect it deserves. Respect in the frailty of what it means to be so small yet so big at the same time.
Kids remind us that we had it and let it go.
Why do I feel so good when I’m connected and soo bad when I’m not?
When we are isolated we are sucking from the grid and feel depleted- when we show up and are engaged we are giving and receiving the sourse. Kind of like the blood going in and out of the heart, or the breath going in and out of the lungs.
It seems so simple but so complicated.
Because it’s humbling to see how simple we really are.
and I want to write that I’ve been working on my one woman show for 14years. It’s been through many transformations, titles and spaces. I’m feeling like this is it… it’s time to let it shine. I always wanted my show to represent my truth. Who I am as a person. To show the dark and the light. To show that even though it make look like the dark is more dominant, the tiniest light will brighten it. At any point in your journey you can choose love. I’m choosing love and I”m hoping you will too.
Hi, everyone. 2013 is gonna be the year of Kindness. If everyone did one tiny kind thing everyday the whole energy of the universe would change. It the depths of despair reach inside and push back that darkness with all the light you can find.
Sometimes it becomes a “if you can’t beat em u might as well join em thing”
That only perpetuates the pain. Love is the only way and it takes tremendous courage and strength to choose love. But I believe that we are capable of courage beyond this realm.
So the election is over and more of the country voted for Obama than not.
“Obama is the only President in over 65 yrs (sinceFDR) to win 2 terms with over 50%of the popular vote both times.”
I’ve been really tryin to not get emotional during all this and pay attention to what people are saying.
The thing that sticks out the most, is the money.
If the middle class is being eliminated, who’s making this happen?
I saw so many posts from working class people saying “vote for Romney! Did anyone poor ever give you a job?”
And the so called 99%ters defending against being demonized.
The other argument is that Obama is just hanging things out to people so that they will vote for him.
With just this simple little analysis, I am seeing a trend . Even the workers who post about Rich people giving them jobs are looking for some sort of hand out.
The 99%ters argue that they work harder. Which they do in a way, because they have set out to make it on their own but I can attest to the fact that it is much more complicated than that, ask any cleaning lady how hard they work.
Shame of being poor plays a huge part in all of this, as does some idea among the wealthy that there is not enough.
People use money as way to feel safe.
I know money makes things easier but I watched a documentary, about these people in a village in a third world country the other night and they were very happy because they relied on each other for support.
The reality is, no one can really take care of another person. Even if you give them money or a job, it’s up to them to handle it responsibly.
The ol “give a man a fish he eats for a day, teach a man to fish he eats for a lifetime” seems to have drown somewhere along the way.
How is anyone going to help another when they are so scared that there will never be enough. The silliness of that thinking sets up the person thinking it, to never have enough.
Maybe the so called “hand outs” should be used to empower people. Even the rich people giving jobs to the less rich.
But that would mean that the haves would have to feel less fear, it would mean that the “haves” would really want to empower the “have nots”
Also the “have nots” would have to really do something.
I feel like this is similar to the Prescription Medication problem we have in this county.
We are supposed to feel and we are supposed to feel bad. U cannot know the good without feeling the bad.
And lastly, why in this country of everything, are people more depressed than any other country in the world.
I have an idea, because nothing will ever be enough. The only thing that is going to help is humanity.
If you pride yourself in being selfish I have a hint, the only way u will satiate the feeling you are chasing by being selfish is to help another person, and by help I mean empower them.
Look at these pictures and tell me that these women do not look more beautiful in the before pictures. I watched “Housewives of Miami” last night and the plastic surgery is becoming the norm. With all the plastic surgery, no one is going to look related in a few years.
Women are trying to live in a world where what they are trying to attain is not even attainable.
Insides make your outsides shine not the other way around. And I got a another hint, most guys don’t care about plastic, they care about kindness.
Look up the reasons why most guys cheat, it’s because they are getting something emotional, not sexual outside the relationship.
And, And, and, they are photoshopping the young girls. They are targeting young people before they even have a second to blossom on the inside. I heard some twenty somethings talking about what it’s like getting older the other day. Really? It will never end unless we start caring about more things on the inside.
I’m not saying you should not take care of yourself and look nice. I’m saying, stop letting these computers dictate an impossible standard for you.
If you’re worried about making the outsides do something unnatural, your insides will never feel better.
Have you ever walked up to a cosmetics counter to buy moisturizer that you truly need and they give you dig u as soon as you walk up — ”Oh your type of skin is oily, or mature skin, or if you don’t watch it u might get such and such a skin.” They set you up with fear right away so you will buy more. They give you the message that you are not ok.
These women look more than ok to me , before.

The New York Comedy Festival presents SUE COSTELLO from the Oscar Winning Film, “The Fighter”
“Minus 32 Million Words” at The Creek and The Cave
Thursday, November,8th at 7:00 p.m.
NY NY –November 8th, 2012 –The New York Comedy Festival is proud to present Sue Costello, acclaimed comic, actor and her one-woman show “Minus 32 Million Words” at The Creek and The Cave 10-93 Jackson Ave Long Island City NY.
The show—alternately hilarious and heartbreaking—tracks Costello’s life growing up in Dorchester, Massachusetts and how she developed a desperate need for fame and money, only to realize that without trust in herself, nothing could make her happy.
Rave reviews have poured in for Minus 32 Million Words, “Not many people have the charisma, stamina, or the anecdotes to sustain a 1 1/2hr show alone, Sue Costello does it sans props, costumes or music in the play that’s worth 32 Million Words” says The Boston Metro
The Boston Herald called the show “powerful, thanks to Costello’s frank charisma and her ability to mingle humor with tragedy,” and the Patriot Ledger mused that “Costello rivets the audience with a comic’s gift for delivery and wit and an actress’ skill with emotion.”
Kristen Johnston called the show “brilliant and agonizingly funny,” and Kevin Nealon commented, “Great characters, great writing and hilarious delivery. She is the next Whoopi…only not black.” Patricia Clarkson agreed, “Sue Costello is an incredible talent – I LOVED this show!”
As to the origin of the show’s title, Costello explains: “The show is called Minus 32 Million Words because I read an article in the New York Times that said that poor kids hear 32 million less words than rich kids and thought, I want to bust through those limitations and tell my story, even if “they” say I don’t have the words. “When my T.V show “Costello” got canceled, I thought, don’t stop Sue, don’t ever quit and now I’m so excited to be performing the show as part of the New York Comedy Festival. The show is about going for your dreams and second chances, all while remembering where you came from. It’s life imitating art,” adds Costello
