In Memoriam: Katelyn Nicole Davis by Stephanie Arel

Powerful and horrible post regarding depression and suicide with a youth who hung herself.

On December 30, 2016, Katelyn Nicole Davis, a 12-year-old girl from Cedartown, Georgia filmed her suicide by hanging from a tree in her front yard. Recorded live, the video has gone viral. Alarmingly, a young girl’s succumbing to death logged on the Internet clamors recognition of an existence she felt helpless to bear alone. Reported in her blog, abuse and sexual assault tainted her young existence. As a result, her perception of her own isolation, her articulated sense of worthlessness, and her shame motivated a trajectory toward death, demonstrating what is at stake when these crimes go unrecognized.

Much effort has been made to remove Katelyn’s suicide video from on-line circulation, but the electronic footprint she left on cyber-world proves nearly impossible to erase. The recording corroborates experiences detailed in her hauntingly designated blog “Diary of a Broken Doll.” Suggesting the core of how she understood her place in the…

Awakening to Evil: Can We Foster Our Empowerment.

Our key to getting beyond politicians and corporations is to empower ourselves. How does that fit in our spiritual practice?

Empowerment By and For All

I believe there are people awakening to the evil that has taken over this world, i.e., Trump, Hilary, Congress, Supreme Court, etc.

Our comatose living has been our reality for at least the past 4-8 thousand years (i.e., the beginning of civilization). Its about all of Nature that we bow to, and that includes OUR Essence.   Essence, in turn, speaks to the Lord with the name Yahweh (I AM, Hebrew)) and Brahmin (The Self, Indian).

Thus Jackie and Jack’s essence is her Self. This is actually the meaning of belly dances and striptease…..these dances are spiritual and are meant to reveal who we truly are in our essence. Women are mostly those who strip, but who is fundamental to our birth if not women? Could the striptease or belly dance speak to all of us?

It is time for an evolution, not a revolution. A revolution keeps us stuck…

It is time for an evolution, not a revolution. A revolution keeps us stuck. An evolution helps us to…..well, evolve….thus it is called an evolution. A revolution is like a spinning tire stuck in the mud..

Those who don’t realize evolution are anti-Christ because Jesus was originally seen as the evolutionary potential of all. Our lack of evolving is due to our surrender to the “Man”, i.e., Adam who is ruling over all of us. It is time we fired these people and stop getting “kicked in the backside.”

Its time we say “NO MORE!”  So, when you pray, tell God you say, “No MORE!”  He/She will listen….Why? because He/She is what’s listening in the depths of your being.

Trump, Russia and our Lives: Where Are We Going?

Lets empower ourselves during this time of Trump, who is nothing more nor less than a being that speaks to the arrogance of the rich. Isn’t it time we knew ourselves and empower ourselves and all of Nature?

My main disappointment in the last election was that Putin would demean himself to foster a Trump…..but then, I realized, if Putin wants an America on its knees, Trump will do it for them.

No bombs are needed as well as no espionage or spies. Its all free! Russia doesn’t have to bomb anybody, or create a war! Trump will lead us to destruction all by himself, and like lemming rats, we are running over over cliff due to our leader leading us there.

That’s where we are headed, over the cliff in following Obamas, Trumps, Clintons, Bushes, etc.

A lot of “New Agers” tell me I should get my mind off this. I will not! I believe that our actions here and now affect future generations. Thus I say to the New Agers, “NO, because I believe it is WE that need to speak up and empower ourselves.”…

Trump, Russia and our Lives: Where Are We Going?

A lot of “New Agers” tell me I should get my mind off this. I will not! I believe that our actions here and now affect future generations. Thus I say to the New Agers, “NO, because I believe it is WE that need to speak up and empower ourselves.” We don’t need the Pladians, or whatever those aliens are. We need to empower ourselves and stop surrendering to external Gods and aliens.

After all, we are the aliens, meaning we are alienated as to our true Nature.

Again, I don’t discount life on other planets…….I just think we need to get beyond external saviors. When do we awaken? We don’t need aliens from thousands of light years away, we need to use our brains and hearts, if we have any left.

I might be long winded here, but my question to the reader is “when do we wake up and empower ourselves?” WE are the ones we have been looking for. Buddha, Christ, Krishna, Thinking Woman, Sophia (Wisdom) are all one and will lead us into a heaven on Earth……but as a Buddhist said, “if you see the Buddha by the highway, then kill him.” Why? Its because Buddha (Christ, et al) is what is seeing. Thus to see our eyes, we need a mirror image. This signifies that this world is mirroring us.

Isn’t it time we destroyed the old mirror and bring forth Sleeping Beauty’s mirror that brings us to enlightenment. Who are the aliens? We are, we are alienated against our Nature, our Essence.

Wake up, folks!

We Can Change the World!

Isn’t it time we empower ourselves rather than surrendering to the “MAN” as per the curse of Genesis.

Empowerment By and For All

YES!  We Can Change The World!

How do we change the world? What evolutionary potentials are hidden in the depths of our being (alongside all creatures/plants)? This is the question we need to answer, otherwise, we will remain stuck with the likes of Hilary/Trump/etc. We need to break the curse of Genesis, “Ye shall be ruled by the MAN.”

Curses only work if we buy into them. Isn’t it time we moved on from the thousands of years of conditioning? If we want to change the world, we need to first change ourselves.

The beginning of sanity is in us, not Trump, not Clinton, not even Jesus Christ for the power of the latter, Jesus, reflects our awakening. The river of fresh blood from our deepest, honest heart can wash away the accumulated trash from our mind.

How do we get to the Christ state? As the “Tao Te Ching”…

How do we get to the Christ state? As the “Tao Te Ching” sings, “Be newborn; be free of yourself.” In other words, get past your conditioned mind. Inhabit your pure heart. Become like Marie, de-conditioned or empty. then, become ready to be pregnant with the Love of All.

 

The Metaphor of Gender: Human Sexuality and God’s Essence

Do we sometimes feel powerless in the face of this modern age? Can we begin to see ourselves in other people, creatures, and the earth and universe in general? What does the notion of electing a president like Trump, or Hilary Clinton bring up? Are we escaping from our empowerment and freedom?

When you gaze into the term “Nature”, what do you perceive? Do you think of the streams, storms, volcanoes, stars, moon, and even empty space regarding Nature?  Do you also say, “Its not my Nature to dislike people”?

What do I mean by this? Am I actually saying Nature is also your “essence”?”

Who are you?  What is within your Self? Isn’t your Self also your Nature? Is Nature thus speaking of our essence as well as the essence of birds, bees and coconut trees? For example, don’t you have veins and arteries that like streams and rivers carry food to different parts of your body?

Isn’t this how you are able to survive? Dare you gaze into the stream behind your house and ponder, “That stream is like the blood flowing in my arteries!” Are your veins carrying blood back to your heart to be refreshed in much the…
