I took a walk into the mountains today.

I grew up at the foot of these mountains, climbed it's easiest hills and explored her untouched beauty. I understand now why men leave their possessions to seek serenity in the mountains. One can truly center himself in the quiet solitude of nature.

The climb was steep but so invigorating. I wish I could capture my impressions as I walked through the forest. The Ironwood tree's weeped such a sad song. As the winds blew threw her branches, I felt her strange sadness and could hear her speak her pain. Trees and plants are so honest. They have nothing to hide.

My digital camera and video camera were intruders in a world so unspoiled by man. As I forged deeper into her valley, I began to feel so close to mother earth. Birds sang haunting tunes of sorrow. Their melodies were the only sound piercing the quiet still of the forest and I marched in time.

My senses were heightened as I inhaled such fresh air. The sound of trickling water soothed any ill thoughts and feelings that I had entered the forest with. The three hour trek through the mountains felt like a magnificent hug. Like Mother Earth had wrapped her arms around me and confirmed the path I choose to walk on. I have so much to learn. I am so humbled by the grand universe and how I am but a speck in her vastness and yet, I know my life has meaning.

I am so grateful to have been a witness of the Creator's beauty today. Can a work of art be created spontaneously? Hardly! My universe is deliberate!

Seizing the Rights

Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar."
--Julius Ceaser

That quote applies today. Since Dubya entered the White House, he has done NOTHING but "bang the drums of war" with "patriotic fervor". America -- WAKE UP!! All our RIGHTS, endowed by the creator, are being stripped of us... and we continue to allow it to happen.


I have a destiny.

The more I master my weaknesses, the more my destiny is uncovered. My life reveals itself... one step at a time. As I prove to God and the Universe that I'm FULLY capable of conquering the things that would halt my development, the more HE grants me vision into what I am.

Life is PROGRESSION and the laws are the same across the board. Each of us will repeat the same lesson over and over until it is learned. Remember that movie Groundhog Day, where Bill Murray plays a reporter that repeats the same day OVER and OVER. Our lives are similar to that. The scenery might change. The people might change but the LESSON repeats itself... until YOU change. The final chapters in the movie Bill Murray changes his approach to the repetitive day. Instead of his NORMAL, pessimistic antics, he transforms into a man that is GENUINELY interested in people and the outcome of their lives.

I haven't seen that movie in years but I've never forgotten the impressions I felt while watching that movie. Life is PROGRESSION! Learn the lesson then God and the Universe can graduate you to the next level.

Much of the last year I've spent shouting REVOLUTION. I long to raise the worlds level of consciousness where CHANGE is possible. I don't want the contention that comes with revolution however, it may be inevitable. As I've stated in a previous post, my weakness is that I MUST have an antagonist in the story of my life. The sad thing is -- that most people MUST have the opposition to attain the heights of their potential. I want to flourish because that is the natural path I am led to, not because I am motivated to outrun my enemy.

Life is PROGRESSION. What I have today is a result of what I did yesterday. If I want to change tomorrow -- I must change what I do today.

You can do it! I know you can!
