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,

Among the Braves

Little White Swan loves her Running Wolf. He is the finest among the braves. Beautiful in more ways than one. His eyes shine like stars against the midnight sky, inviting her to gaze longer.

Little White Swan loves her Running Wolf. He is the finest among the braves. Beautiful in more ways than one. His smile reaches from clan to clan. He is kind, spiritual, and glows like fire, inviting her to warm herself.

Little White Swan loves her Running Wolf. He is the finest among the braves. Beautiful in more ways than one. His skin is smooth and rich like chocolate, tempting her to caress and see if he will melt in her hands.

Little White Swan loves her Running Wolf. He is the finest among the braves. Beautiful in more ways than one. His laugh is happy and joyful like a song beating upon the tribal drum of his heart. He resonates through the woodlands, beckoning her to come dance along.

Little White Swan loves her Running Wolf. He is the finest among the braves. Beautiful in more ways than one. His lips are ripe and desirable like cherries hanging on a tree ready for picking, inviting her to come kiss, and have a taste.

Little White Swan loves her Running Wolf. He is the finest among the braves. Beautiful in more ways than one. He is strong and masculine, with the body of an Alpha warrior ready for battle, inviting her to surrender herself freely into his arms.

Where Did My Childhood Go?

Where did my childhood go? The one from long ago. She lipped away before I was born. The world I came into had already been torn, ripped apart with festering wounds of the past.

Where did my childhood go? The one from long ago. Along with her simplicity. She was sweet, full of life, and faultless. Her innocence was stolen before she could claim herself.

Where did my childhood go? The one from long ago. Along with her carefree days. They were gone too soon. She cannot recall days of happiness. They are blurred, only memories of pain and sorrow remain.

Where did my childhood go? The one from long ago. She is hidden deep. Like a ghost within, she is barred, trapped, and unable to leave. She screams wanting to be set free.

Where did my childhood go? The one from long ago. She surfaces occasionally, bringing with her a sadness that is raw; ethereal. I hear her, weeping over her crushed spirit, over the scars embedded on her broken heart.

Where did my childhood go. The one from long ago. She slipped away before she was born. I wish to hold her hand, cradle her in my arms, and wipe her falling tears. I miss her, though I don’t remember her. I miss her and long for her presence. If you see her, tell her I miss her and love her.

Where did my childhood go? The one from long ago.

Who Am I to Be Saved on Judgement Day?

Who am I to be saved on judgement day? What’s so special about the way I worship. Why should I be saved and not my neighbor? Why should his or her heart stop beating and mine allowed to continue? Who’s to say the religion I was raised in, is the only way? I have no religion, other than to love my neighbors as myself. What’s the difference between my neighbor and I? Why should I be saved and not my neighbor, simply because they pray a different way? Should not the heart of every man and woman be taken into consideration and not their race, religion, or sexual orientation? The Divine is love! The Divine is not unkind as some would like to think. However, humans are unkind, kill, and shun what they consider to be improper, sinful, and unlikable. Who’s to say what “Gods work” really is? I say to humanity, let the Divine do the work deemed necessary, and together let’s focus more on loving our fellow humans.
