We all begin our journey as moths, fluttering around the first bit of light we encounter, bouncing ridiculously into the brightness or burning up in its flame. Often we are unable to reach its source, completely unaware that more light exists elsewhere and most importantly within ourselves. Until we rediscover and release the light that shines from within; when we allow this spirited wisdom to emerge, then transformation is possible. Influenced by the cycles of nature, transmutations will take on the qualities represented by the balance between our impulsive will, our emotions and our intellect. Be aware and create balance … Continue reading THE MOTH. How are you transmuting?
The signs have not been few and they have not been subtle. If you have the awareness to see them, then you also know that they are gaining in momentum and intensity. The signs exist on a continuum in which one extreme overlaps another. The system encourages us to play things out on this stage as a war between factions when in reality, it is a war we wage against ourselves under the Law of Polarity. The Omen is experienced on each side of the polar spectrum and if one is not aware that each extreme cannot exist without the … Continue reading THE OMEN. Do you see the signs?
Avoidance exists on a scale. There are significant avoidances and everyday avoidances. Avoidance of doing the dishes is only significant if there is a pattern of avoidance which leads to disorder in one’s life and living amongst chaos. Significant avoidances make us uncomfortable. They are the things that pressure us into behaviors and ways of thinking that we don’t like. Not because they are bad, but because they are undeveloped and unfamiliar. The funny thing about avoidances is that they can’t exist without good intentions first opening the door for them to manifest. Now there are many reasons we avoid … Continue reading The Truth About Avoidance
If you’ve been following along here or Instagram, you are aware of my Photos From The Matrix project. For the past six months I’ve been photographing myself in grocery stores and other places of business to assist me in elaborating on the idea of seperation from nature, immersion in the artificial and the importance we put on our digital selves. I think some of you just thought I enjoyed standing motionless in grocery stores! These self-portraits allow me to create a glitch in the system. It is how I can pop a bubble of illusion simply by blending into it … Continue reading Forcing A Creative Environment
I recently retitled my blog to Saved By Self Expression because I believe that our unique creative expression is the answer to many of our perceived problems. Everything I write here is tied to our thinking, molding, influences and whether or not the ideas that we express as our own, actually are our authentic beliefs. This is linked directly to our emotions which leads to the question of, “Am I responding emotionally based on my own reasoning and experience, or am I responding to someone elses’s?” Let’s forget about all of our ‘problems’, the ‘injustices”, feelings of ‘victimhood’, etc. Notice … Continue reading Creative Self Expression Saved My Life
It seems that I can’t get out of the house without experiencing the pain of others. I deleted my Facebook account last year to escape the pain and noise of the echo chamber that it is, but even walking into public, people appear beat-up and defeated. Only yesterday I made the mistake of allowing an acquaintance’s Instagram post interfere with my thoughts and her update haunted me all day. The post was a photo of the sky, a beautiful clear, blue sky with a caption that read, “I am just about infuriated at how beautiful today is.” One more in … Continue reading They Are Sooo Unhappy
I have become fascinated by horror movies where people are transformed into monsters. The idea that a poison takes over or a contamination turns someone into a fiendish creature is an interesting theme for a movie, but the reality is that we are doing it to ourselves quite openly all the time. Triggered. Child tantrums have made way for adult meltdowns and seriously low karmic behavior goes from the periodic to standard practice. We use labels and fear to justify our behavior, opt for selective outrage and express intolerance for anyone who refuses to take part in our rage. Self … Continue reading Self Transformation Can Get Ugly
