My Wish for You, My Single Friend…

Standard

Ok…this is better! I wanted to share this post as I related to it so much, not only for single people but ALL people. Learning to truly love and honor ourselves is perhaps the deepest lesson of being human, and I feel is important for all relationships.

I’m looking forward to the shifts coming to this planet that will have each of us owning and knowing our inherent beauty, worth, deservingness of love and respect. From this knowing, it will flow out to honoring all others and the planet and finally bring peace and cooperation across the world.

Midlife Moments

It was overcast all day

I have a friend who is newly single. I watched as she navigated her break-up with her significant other. I supported her as she went through the initial stages of grief .. anger .. bargaining .. denial … depression … acceptance. I let her talk … and cry .. and vent … and held her in my heart as the fear … that fathomless fear …. of being alone crashed into her world. She is through the worst of the initial stuff and is settling into her single life. I, as a single woman and a writer, seem to her like a guide that can help her to step into being single and have a full life regardless of whether or not that space in her bed is ever filled again. My friend, I may seem like a guide that does it with grace, but know that everything you feel…

200 + Followers…yay!!!!

Standard

followed-blog-200-2x

Word press just let me know that I now have over 200 followers!  I can’t tell you how much this means to me.

As I’ve mentioned before, I spent much of my life hiding who I really am, leading to deep depressions and suicidal feelings.  I grew up so judged by my peers in my small home town and seemed to face that judgement and rejection many of the places I lived.  So I started this blog to come out of the closet as a left wing, way left wing political and social activist and deeply metaphysical/spiritual person, not wanting to hide anymore but to share my deepest thoughts, feelings, desires and dreams with whoever chose to read my words. Even if no one had wanted to read my words, I needed to share them for me, for my own healing and welfare.

So to end up with 200+ followers is amazing to me. That you all want to read what I share, is such a gift.

And then….a bigger gift I hadn’t planned on is the relationships I would build along the way.  I came from a small family to begin with and my birth family is all gone.  I’m single as well.  So it has meant a lot to me to get to know many of you and share your lives, your dreams, your desires, your successes, your challenges.  Thank you so much for letting me into your lives!

I hope you will continue to enjoy my blog and all I choose to share with you, as I enjoy your posts as well.

WARM BODIES – Trailer – YouTube

WARM BODIES – Trailer – YouTube.

I just saw this movie last night and loved it! I found it funny, insightful, tender and thought provoking. I’d never seen a zombie film before although while being a participant in a stage hypnosis at one of my hypnosis meetings, I won best zombie walker 🙂

I was telling my friend about this movie today, talking about the plot that centers around a young male zombie falling for a human young woman and it bringing him back to life. She remarked that she didn’t like the message that so many Hollywood movies give us that leads us to believe that we can “fix” someone we care for, “change” them, thus leading us into unhealthy relationships. I understood, as I, too, have found myself in that unhealthy relationship pattern in the past.

But this movie wasn’t telling that tale. To me, the message of the film was that the fearless act of the young male zombie reaching past his limitations, conditioning and circumstances, to love and protect a human woman, rather than eat her, not only transformed him but it transferred to the entire zombie population.

(The movie description and the trailer allude to this, so I’m not spoiling the film for you)

I feel that this is the process we are in right now, to rise above our conditioning, our habits, our limiting beliefs, reach out to others and in that act, we are raising up humanity. Much has been said about the 100th Monkey phenomena, whereby once 100 monkeys on an island learned something new, monkeys on other islands started doing that action as well. When enough of us reach past our fears, open our hearts and minds, to connect with another, it begins to break that wall down for all of humanity.

I believe that it will bring us all back to love, back to the light, back to our divinity, back to our true natures.

Beginners – Official Trailer [HD] – YouTube.

I watched this movie the other night and really enjoyed it. The movie is about a Father who comes out as gay, after his wife of 40+ years dies; his relationship with his son; and his son’s attempt to successfully stay in a long term relationship. They are both beginners on their different paths for romantic relationships. But love is the same, no matter what the gender combination. The movie was magical, tender, touching, sad, and very honest.

I feel that in many ways, we are all beginners now. As we learn to shed all the ways we have been taught to believe about ourselves and the world, we are embarking on new territory. We have learned to believe in many institutions, history, and our path as humans through lies. Now that more and more of these lies are being exposed, now that we are waking up to the truth of who we really are and of what we are capable, we are stepping off one path and onto another.

We have left that old “house”, and we are in the process of drawing up the blueprints for our new one. In the meantime, we are on the sidewalk with all the possessions we have chosen to keep, after discarding many of the ones we are leaving behind..the ones that don’t fit anymore. Some of these “possessions” we have easily and gladly shed, while others had to be stripped out of our hands.

These times are uncertain and yet exciting! Let’s enjoy them as best we can and leap with faith and imagination as we create the new!
