The Light of the Solar Plexus Chakra radiates through the Beast’s Heart. After a long Sleep, It awakens to cast its Destruction upon the Ravaged Earth.

Today I am self-employed. After years of trying to fit into the system and getting spit out every which way, I decided to say fuck it and followed my own heart and intuition instead. I don’t buy the old fallacy of appeal to authority you see.
Today I am all about opening eyes, hearts and souls. Instead of struggling to make money, like everyone else, I decided to face my fear of scarcity. I’ve opened my eyes to the fact that debt is inherent to the economic system. On a Global scale, there is always more debt than money available. And the discrepancy keeps on growing. Today, 15 million children die of starvation every year. Today, those who are truly in power are the multinationals who have the money and influence to buy out any Supreme Court judge, politician or President. If we let them. Our Home is in deep suffering and we are all controlled to some extent by our conditioning and our individual and collective fear. Our monetary system promotes egocentrism. It promotes the idea of Win/Lose, whether you personally believe in Win/Win or not.
A time of Great Change is at hand. You must make a choice today. You will either accept and promote the needed change, or you will resist it. Just as you suffer when you resist the Present Moment, you will suffer if you resist this Great Change. A very wise man once said, truthfully: “The only Constant in the Universe is Change”.
The only Constant in the Universe is Change
What this Great Change will be exactly is still unknown. To me, it is a blissful, poetic mystery. To you, it may be a source of fear and anxiety. It all depends on your perspective. You have a very important part in how all of this will unfold.
We must be creative. We must promote the idea of giving for the sake of giving. We must inhabit it, live it and breathe it. We must be the change we want to see in the world. We must be stronger than the conditioning we’ve been given. We must awaken to our own potential. We must expand our sense of self to include the other.
Love yourself first. No matter what. It is the only way to love others unconditionally. Nurture your wisdom, reason and compassion.
Thank you for reading. Feel free to re-read it at will. Let it sink in.
I’d like to apologize to all of you for neglecting my blog for such a long time. I suppose good things take time to brew. Today I’m making a post I’ve been thinking about making for a very long time. Basically I want to reiterate my commitment to 2 things.
First, on a personal level, my dedication to my art. At the present moment that means my acting. But like most artists, my main passion is creativity itself. That is why I love modelling, doing photography, singing (no matter how terrible I sound lol!), writing drawing, dancing and directing! Phew…Did I forget anything?
I’ve learned through many hardships that focusing on a single activity or passion at a time is the only way for that channel to express itself in the material world. That is why I’m focused on my acting career right now. I admire the courage it takes to let emotion and truth shine through an individual for all to see. And THAT is what I aspire to! Everything else is just distractions.
My greatest inspiration.
Second of all, I want to reiterate my commitment to making this world a saner, more humane place for all sensible beings. There’s a Buddhist poem I remind myself of to inspire me to be a better person every moment. It goes something like this:
As long as there is space,
As long as there will be sensible beings,
So too shall I remain,
To ease their suffering.
In closing, I’m making this post to remind myself of both of these commitments. If I ever get lost along the way, don’t be afraid to slap me in the back of the head and redirect me in the right path! I promise to do the same for you! 😉
With undying love,
