PRIDE

Here we are now entering the 6th stage of Jumanji, otherwise known as June 2020. June marks an entire month of LGBTQ+ PRIDE month, prior to Covid-19, the murder hornets, a need to remind society that Black Lives Matter and Hallmark’s version of PRIDE through Corporate America pretending they even understand, other than a rainbow flag means symbolism for this community.

The question of why this community needs an entire month or day for that matter to celebrate PRIDE. A question, I will often admit that myself did not mind a need to explain, but now I have time to reflect and I will do my best to give reason through feeling. You know those things I have no problem talking about but anyone else seems emotional inept to describe.

I choose this song, as an equal approach. It still instills the feeling when a gay person walks into a club and Whitney is playing and no one can control that inner gay when a great fantastic song comes on. I also chose this version specifically, because a it has more modern twist to a classic that most can relate to. The energy, this song brings is equivalent to one experiencing a PRIDE fest for the first time and walking down the hill into the park, or into the Tracks.

The overwhelming complete and utter shock of the pasty nipples, pure nakedness from every which one. Your head in a tailspin, thinking like what am I walking into other than a whole bunch of fucking love. Darting between the Dykes on Bikes, to the leather clad chaps of the cowboys, from the Drag Queens to the twinks, to the lipsticks to the ultra fem and just pure what the fuck is happening, honestly, but I will guarantee it’s fabulous and you do not care what is happening.

It is a day where skin color, sexual preference, gender, or any stereotypical biases seen daily, is forgotten. Walking down the hill next to the capital seeing hundreds of thousands of people just meeting in one great area to love, live and be happy. It is our vacation from reality. It is the reason, whether you are gay or straight Whitney invokes feeling within you. It is the one day that we can forget our lives and have one day where nothing else matters but you and you and only. We remember we can love ourselves for everything we are.

So do not ask why we need an entire month, or one special day, that is like asking why you enjoy your birthday or Christmas. The feelings baby. The happiness felt in one collective energy that makes anything else happening disappear, just so the next day we can all go back to our 9-5’s. The woman in full drag on Sunday doing her best lip sync to Proud Mary awakes the next morning to become Dan and sells insurance and carries an extra Sharpie on him for his auditing of accounts hiding himself, out of fear what will happen to him if the truth is revealed.

It is one day we do not fear this.

So, tell me again, why do you need a birth day or to celebrate Christmas? The same reason I need this day and month.

And Then It Happened…But Far From Done

The Golden Rule: Treat others as you would like to be treated.
The Law of Attraction: The belief that positive or negative thought brings positive or negative experiences into a person’s life.
The Golden Rule and the Law of Attraction are one in the same.
Your beliefs, are irrelevant to reality because they are just thoughts. Religious or not, it is just faith. Faith and desire become one in the same.
“The Secret”

Tolle Simplified and How I See It

It has been no secret that I am on a spiritual journey to once again, find a relationship with myself. Through this journey of self-discovery I have been taken on a ride similar to taking a raft down Niagara Falls.

I have had amazing days and horrible days, but the important aspect, is I am learning to look within in myself, in so many ways, spiritually. There is not a rhyme or reason to the format to what you see daily, because I do not control what is being shown to me, at that moment. Normally, you read of individual’s spiritual awakenings after they have already taken place. What I have been showing you is my experience, as it is happening. I have covered anything from personal life stories, to just a song. There has been just video’s and there have been days I could not even find the fight to push through, but here I am still typing along. You get what I have for you. I am following my intuition with most aspects. One path leading to another, of what adventure I may encounter on page 3. Go left and start all over again or advance four pages to see what happens next. Each new person, I start digging in deeply to, shown from some other research from that day.

I live my life in such a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious way each day, but my thoughts are so black and white, not allowing myself to balance itself, sending me into the overthinking chaos of my life. The frantic panic mode, I try to lasso in every second of the day. So no, it is not right or left because whatever is meant could be in the middle making that day’s choice of grey area. It is not do this or do that; it is what is happening now. The cliché advice you hear repeatedly, from anyone practicing meditation, the “key,” to your door is to be present and aware. It is what is happening in this exact moment. So last night, you got Tarot cards, and today you are going to read my simplified version of a message of Eckhart Tolle’s main point, to “The Power of Now.” The main reason, people on the go, or others with busy life’s do not take a moment to explore open-minded and new concepts because they read like the following:

The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not ” the thinker.” The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast real of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter-beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace- arise from beyond the mind

You begin to Awaken

Say what!? Exactly, my point, it can be even more simplified and hard to ignore. So, let us break down each of the following sentences above to key words. The picture above, is my own breaking down of what the true meaning is. They now become “5 Realizations To Become Awakened.”

  1. Inner peace is the realization you are not your thoughts. Beginning of freedom, becomes (Inner Peace) and you become aware you are not what you think.
  2. Observe your thoughts and feelings and you will activate your subconscious mind. Derived from Watch, the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. This alone confusing because it is spoken in a way that modern society no longer speaks.
  3. There is so much more to the Universe beyond thought. Referring to the vast realm of intelligence beyond thought. Allowing 8 words to be represented by only one, The Universe.
  4. Thought is only a small amount of intelligence compared to the things that really matter.
  5. (Beauty)-in all things, (Love)unconditionally, (Creativity)Open-minded & new, (Joy) Happiness and (Inner Peace)

You Awaken

The answer seems so simple when you read the 5 realizations above. It makes you wonder why we make our own lives so difficult by polluting our minds with the what ifs and whoa’s of overthinking. A lesson, however, we must all learn to appreciate the aspects to life that truly matter.
