Creativity is Spirituality

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 rebirth 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 rhythm 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 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 so 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 source. 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.

Ok so I'm off to LA on Monday

and I want to write that I've been working on my one woman show for 14 years. 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 may 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.


Happy New Year!

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. In 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, you 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.

Rich man, poor man- it'll never be enough.

So the election is over and more of the country voted for Obama than not. "Obama is the only President in over 65 yrs (since FDR) 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%ers are defending against being demonized.

The other argument is that Obama is just hanging things out to people so 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%ers 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 a 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, but teach a man to fish he eats for a lifetime" seems to have drowned 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. You 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 you will satiate the feeling you are chasing by being selfish is to help another person, and by help I mean empower them.
