I'm Open Like a Parachute

Greetings loved ones,

They say a mind works better when it is open like a parachute. In my journey of self discovery it is evident everyday that human beings are more connected than we would like to think. On my internet sites I have people with different opinions which I value very much. However, it is truly interesting to sit back and observe this game of self gratification. There are those who make it their "responsibility" to harass, convert, and belittle people who go against the grain. Some of us never take into consideration that the "grain" will always be subjective and objective. Depending on your background we may never operate the same in two different cities, towns or countries. On the other hand,  chaos is a natural pattern and we can evolve from everything we are exposed to. Non conformity is the voice for the people who do not have one.

True inner peace is the freedom to let others experience their own reality.  The more limited your reality is, the more limited you want the next person to be. Life is not about winning all the time. We have internalized that everything must be a fight. Nature is relaxation.

Separation is an illusion. Judgement is an illusion. We are all connected. We have been condition since childhood to judge others. We end up living a life of fear and insecurity. We defend our belief systems instead of staying neutral. Discernment is when you do not take things personal. It means having an open mind like a child who doesn't care about your physical appearance, what happened in your past or what you have in the works for the future. 

I decided to show more of my paintings and photography online.

Stay present.  Stay woke,

Zoe Blaq

I'm addicted to coping strategies!!

Has anyone ever told you that they used to be "in the world" but all of a sudden out of some circumstance or situation have decided they are too God-like to participate? Well, reality is that we must all live in this world. Call it spirit, God, Jesus, Buddha, consciousness, the universe or nothing at all - it was all created for you, in you. Life and the world we live in is beautiful. Look at all the wonders of nature. The difference is knowing what you are here to do. We can feed our fears with fear or we can conquer our fears by turning inside ourselves for real answers. People confuse superficial actions with the real thing constantly, and so they will forever remain zombies. I believe in God, I believe in science, I believe in evolution. I am open to everything and attached to nothing. This is the mystery of life and I humble myself to the all and everything.

Your DNA and your life journey was specifically chiseled out for you. Stop looking at the next persons imperfec…
This was an inspiring weekend for every type of writer who needs a little push. I had fun sharing my poetry with a talented group of Los Angeles poets at the annual LitFest Pasadena. 

Memorial Weekend at Val Verde, Ca

One of the best things happened to me! I was able to fullfill a bucket list dream which was to put on a community Music and Cultural Festival. Although there is room for improvement I can honestly say it was the best decision I have made this year. It takes support of family and friends to keep me motivated and pushing towards my goals and vision.
I am grateful. There will be more festivals curated by me in the on going years. The world is as good as you make it. Stay focused, stay positive and set your intention.

Please do yourself a favor and research the historic relevance of "Black Palm Springs" in the 1920's during Jim Crow.

This annual festival is not just about having a good time it's about historical awareness in underserved communities.

Come out next year for free camping, free swimming, yoga, live music and community!
