How To Be Content

The term spiritual or religious is subjective and objective based on your upbringing. We can never assume or judge people on how much they know or don't know. Peace is the freedom to let others experience their own reality. The illusion that we have internalized is separation, judgement, fear, competition and hierarchy.We have to stop clinging to false identity and belief systems. On my journey I have realized one of the most profound things we can do for another human being is give eye contact and a smile. A human connection is what will make a difference through longevity.

Life is a constant balancing act and it is important that we embrace the darkest corners of our mind. This is where survival, awareness and alertness meet us. We must be accountable of how we live our lives. Do you ever get sad because you constantly have this unsettling, discontent feeling? It reminds me of that commercial with the childrens control group.. "We want more, we want more!" I wonder if I am the only person who feels there is something wrong with me because I am constantly striving to challenge myself to the next level.

What I have learned is that yearning is our natural creativity. Exploration is infinite. Growth is limitless. It's our universal "Christ" nature. We have everything we need within ourselves and somehow our human consciousness has forgotten. Being fulfilled is a memory that has been engraved into our psyche because we have experienced it already. It may be fragmented but it was always there. It is a feeling that we have already experienced. You can't crave something you never had.

The confusion is our human consciousness playing tricks on us, telling us what we are searching for is outside of ourselves. We live in a world of consumption. We are brainwashed to think worldly expectations is what dictates how "good enough" we really are. We then begin to validate ourselves with temporary ego driven band aids. Be aware of what you are striving for in life.

When we pray to change someone or something we are taking away from someones freedom of choice. Prayer should never be used to tell God what to do. God or the universe (whatever you want to call it) already knows what is happening. Pray for God to do his will. Be thankful and grateful for being alive. Pray for the strength to continuously forgive yourself and others for not being perfect. We can not pray to change someone or something because there is a plan for everyone and we can't get in the way of what God is trying to do. God will do his will anyway.

Thanks for reading!

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!
