The Lilies of the Field.

I was walking home this evening very deep in thought. I was feeling anxious (still am) about my future, and whether or not I am doing well in my life. I picked some Pomegranates, and continued to walk. I came across this tree that I’ve walked past many times, but never took the time to look at it extensively. I thought it was an Oleander bush, but it wasn’t. I smelt the blossoms and touched their petals. This is one of the prettiest bushes (second to the Crape Myrtle) I’ve seen in Tempe, Arizona. As I was taking in the beauty of this magnificent bush, I noticed a bee flying around visiting the lower blossoms. We all know by now, that I absolutely adore bees. I found myself saying out loud to the Universe, “please make this bee come up higher to some of these blossoms.” With that, I waited and waited, saw a beautiful butterfly, and then this little bee. I was so happy to see this bee diving for nectar, I started to choke up a bit. I’m still emotional over seeing this bee do what bees do. I genuinely enjoy moments like this. Being with Mother Nature and her creatures are truly spiritual moments for me. I am so happy to be sharing my happiness with you in the form of a picture or more. Today, I understand what Christ and so many other teachers before him, meant when they said to live in the present moment. It was in the present moment, that I learned something about myself and am now openly confessing to it. I am a sensitive being. And I am going to love and accept that about myself in the here and now.  I’m also reminded that it is living in the present moment that we are able to find true joy, peace, and happiness. Being in the present moment is all that matters, because everything else is a distraction and an illusion. It was being in the present moment that I remembered, everything is going to be all right in the end. The past is gone and the future has yet to arrive, so why worry and be anxious. The lilies of the field and the sparrows never do. It is because they know they will always be taken care of, and so will I.

Drawing Again

I would have to say, this is one of my best drawings in a very long time. I used to be really good at drawing. Sometime’s it’s hard for me to allow myself to do the things I love. I love anything arts related. Dane, Music, Singing, Drawing, and of course, Photography. This is the backside of my favorite Disney character, Ariel. When I was little, I would play in the bathtub pretending to be a mermaid. My favorite scene was right after Price Eric woke up on the shore. She was singing the song, “Part of Your World.” Man!!! I loved that scene so much, I started to act that scene out every time I was in the bathtub or water. To be a child and carefree again. Memories. Memories. Some of those childhood days were good. Rare were those good childhood days. Hmm…, yep. Enjoy the drawing. I sure did enjoy drawing it.

Love Always,

Letting Go of Religion.

Yesterday I went to a Cathedral after attending classes at ASU. I like how silent it is inside of Cathedrals. The still silence can be really comforting and eerie at the same time. There is no silence like the silence inside a Cathedral. I usually sit in one of the back pews. However, because I wanted to observe Mass at a closer proximity, I sat in one of the pews at the very front of the Cathedral. I was early and Mass wouldn’t be starting for another 45 minutes. So, I sat in my pew and drew the Jesus (to the best of my ability) that was above the altar. As I was drawing, I told the Jesus on my paper, “just because I am drawing you, doesn’t mean I believe in you.” I kept drawing and drawing until the Priest finally walked up to the altar, and started giving his sermon. After his brief sermon, he performed Mass. As I observed the Parishioners and the Priest eating and drinking the body and blood of the so called “Christ”, I felt myself laughing inside at how absurd all of this was (by this, I mean religion). Religion prevents people from reaching their highest potential, by keeping their followers in a perpetual state of helplessness. Humans give their power away to these religions and beings that once existed. Can we even say for sure they existed? No, we can’t. To this day, there are no archaeological findings that say any of these beings existed. All we have are books, and books can and have changed a lot in 2,000 plus years. After Mass was over, I started walking home. As I was walking and thinking, I felt something stirring within my Spirit. I felt my Spirit was moving me to do something. After arriving home, I packed up all of my Hindu idols and Ganesha tapestry, and took them to the Hindu temple. Upon arriving at the temple I went in, honored the so called “gods”, said good bye to them, and walked out. I left the idols in a box for someone else who feels the “need” to use them, behind. I would enter this temple and any other religious building for the last time. The stirring in my Spirit was the need to let go of religion and past beliefs. No Church, Mosque, Synagogue, or Temple will have my feet gracing their doorways with my presence, for I am letting go of them all. No more limiting beliefs will keep me from evolving and expanding, for I am the one I have been looking for, and I am the treasure I have been looking for. This applies to every human, for it is their birthright. Sadly, many are failing to see their Universal given birthright. In fact, every creature has a birthright, simply because they exist. Religion may have been needed in the beginning (highly unlikely). However, we as humans are no longer in the beginning and so, there is no longer a need for religion. With that said, the time for religion has run out and the time for human evolution and expansion has arrived. The remaining question is, will you evolve and expand? Or will the time for you like religion, also run out?

Love Always,
