What I Want to Do:
Reveal Something New,
Breathe with the atoms and the universe,
Awaken the Body's Cells to Consciousness,
Love the Earth,
All of them because we are all connected,
Liberty for All,
Truth and Love,
Writing Children's Stories,
Hugging trees and other folks,
Star and Sky gazing,
Reiki Energy Healing,
Laughting at myself always,
Here I wish to simply say I love you all,
in all your beauty, and all your flaws,
for mistakes are the unfolding of Perfection,
the difficult gateways to the light of Awareness,
within the obstacle lies the key to change,
so we must love the Darkness as we seek to slay it,
honor the Opportunity it presents to Awaken,
and reveal the hidden Truth behind All.
I wish only to inspire you in some small way or to give some key for discovering inspiration in another pathway which is right for you. So, below are a few links to explore, in case you feel a Connection as you walk your Path. If not, then much Grace along your Journey!

Hopefully more to come in time!
playing in a vast field of Oneness
a false division strives towards the True
in conflict and tension seeking to Become,
yet lost in its own distorted vision:
a sight born of separation’s lie
casting shadows where only Light exists,
imagining abysses where only Connection dwells;
illusions mimicking as reality in mind’s divide.
embodied beings upon a missioned Way
struggling to realize a reconciled Image,
a universal diversity upon the breath of the Divine
moving together in a forgotten unison,
collectively blossoming a limitless Life
where Youth flows from the womb of death
as an unending Expression of humanity’s One Soul.
from moment to moment life’s endless labor reveals,
awareness expanding upon Surrender’s poise,
minds joining with vastness of Mind,
hearts merging in a single Ocean Heart,
bodies melting within a Supreme Body;
a secret Closeness hidden in the kiss of space
as an animated Existence envisioning Itself
with married eyes gazing from the inner Expanse.
stationed in Truth’s indivisible Being,
an Eternal Love with an Infinite Embrace,
a Supreme Harmony dances between Souls,
intimate and free, a caress of God’s Identity
in the born substance of a Human Unity.

||Well, I am vegan, considerably eco-friendly (only ride a bicycle!), spiritual in a yogic-self-transformation kind of way, and embrace that all of Life is Divine and there is a Divine Presence in
All. I am American but moved to a place called Auroville in India when I felt an inner connection to this place and realized that I must transform myself in all my nature in order to truly see the world change. So that is why I am here, and that is my life path. We have here a lot of environmental experiments going on, and one which I feel is most important in helping this Earth and the environment is that we must truly begin to connect in a more spiritually conscious, living, breathing way with Nature and everything around us, with Matter itself. Until we realize the deeper sense of Unity with Matter, between ourselves as humans and between humans and nature, nothing will truly change in its essence, at its roots. This does not mean we make Nature our God, but rather see it as a part of a more Vaster Whole, spiritual and material at once.
I do some writing - poetry, children's stories, other spiritual-focused material. All meant to inspire towards greater Unity and deeper awakenings. I work in gardens physically with the earth, with the trees and plants, and try to be an instrument for a Divine Force to work more in this physical, material world, even in the cells and atoms where Consciousness is there and alive, but which we have yet to experience in its depths.
Of course, there is much more to me, but perhaps this is a good beginning! : )

|Wild Fact About Me
||I speak to my body's cells! And they reply in their own unique ways.
||I don't cling to any one philosophy or way of being, but allow myself to freely unfold from within the truth of my being, which is always progressing as long as I let go and surrender ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING IN EVERY MOMENT!!
|What Gives Me Hope
||Nothing but the Divine Mother, the Supreme in all its Infinite Vastness and Eternal Presence.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||Cinnamon rolls for everyone! Okay, seriously, I would gather many leaders from various areas of expertise and try formulate a way to allow everyone to simply survive with basic necessities - food, water, home - with no more fear about losing these things. To create a foundation of security for people to feel safe in at least the basics of their lives, and remove so much fear about the future, so that we can free up our energies to create more from our own unique inner visions. This would probably mean having everyone giving a small amount of time in their day/week/month towards working in one of the core areas of Need - agriculture, food, housing/construction, water organization, clothing, etc.- though there are probably many ways this could be organized. Then I would hand out the cinnamon rolls!
|What/who changed my life and why
||The Mother's Agenda, a volumes of books on the experiences of the cellular consciousness and the seeking of a transformation of Matter and the Body. Everything is not what we think it is. There's much much more.
|What Bugs Me
I practice seeing truth in all things
Trees trees trees!
The Divine Force
|What Scares Me
I battle fear every moment it arises
Those who uplift humanity,
||Earth is the chosen place of mightiest souls,
Earth is the heroic spirit's battlefield . . .
The highest peak of love points into a heaven of complete mutual self-giving, its summit is the rapturous fusing of two souls into one.
