Warning: Beware my dear faint of heart, with this book, I thee wed… the deal. It may carry a sizeable offense factor. If you live in a glass house on Thin Skin Lane, put—the—book—down, you might shrivel up into a million tiny quivering pieces & pop! The following pages are my views only, & do not reflect the views of the company I keep. That’s up to them to decide. If you’re game, then proceed accordingly! Cheers! #Be-A-closer

 

“All men are intrinsical rascals, & I am only sorry that, not a dog, I can’t bite them.

Introduction

 

Everything heals. Your body heals. Your heart heals. The mind heals. Wounds heal. Your soul repairs itself. Your happiness is always going to come back. Bad times don’t last.”

Christiana Rutkowski

Let me start by saying… EVERYTHING HEALS. Thank God for small favors. Life, the Earth & her inhabitants & we the people here, are all self-cleaning mechanisms, wherefore we can drain the living shit out of all our resources & fashion a fateful folly land of flawed humanhood… for decades upon centuries… & with enough of the right kind of TLC, anything will eventually bounce back. Miracles are not as uncommon as one might think. Yes, everything heals, mends, regenerates, realigns, rebalances, recovers & restores, despite odds. That said, knowing all is not lost… I give you my razor-sharp analysis of the current state of affairs, with no holds barred, through an unrefined lens. Enjoy!

No doubt, our species has indeed gone rogue. The Earth is riddled with bizarre behavior, criminal conduct, & unruly, unkempt, uncouth, unraveling citizens. It’s no secret. It’s evident everywhere you turn. I’d like to believe in the inherent goodness inside of people, but the harsh truth of widespread subpar mediocrity remains. Our innate goodness is like a ball of rising sun… it is at first dim & as it rises to its greatness, it will either shine brightly, high in the sky, for all to see, bestowing light & nourishment or get clouded by fog behind a curtain of clouds & darken the whole damn party with a dull damp haze.

We may all have inherent goodness, but not all people let it shine. At our human core, we are a species of predators & prey & no sugar-coated theory about how we are saints & saviors will convince me otherwise. Sorry, but I’m not sorry. Folks everywhere have this lackluster laissez-faire attitude where they just roll with the punches until they get knocked out for the count, & just give up getting up. We are born creators… not pawns along for some ride on some gameboard of a dictator God monster with a pointy staff & a naughty & nice list. A rather large portion of the population does not seem to get that, though. Our species is suffering here. The universal omnipotent force of eternal Divine energy (God) is neutral & unbiased. It co-creates with us according to our freedom of will via our choices. If we do not exercise our free will, someone else, government, religion or some man-made machine will exercise it for you. And at that point, there are no guarantees it will be the best choice for all involved.

God damn it, we are in control of what we choose to think, feel, perceive, believe & focus on. This is the seat of the “freedom of will.” Remember people: what we focus on, we expand, & then thus experience. What we resist, persists, because we are thus focusing on it via disdain. It’s not rocket science. If a person wants to keep harping on the same thing over & over & over & over & over, they will continuously get the same results… disdain, disappointment, dysfunction, dis-ease. This disdain is essentially proving over & over & over again, their focused crappy theory, & thus the belief, being insidiously endorsed. Stop that! It’s YOUR brain… no one else’s. CHOOSE to see things another more improved way! Things will then thus change. It’s law. How we perceive things, people & circumstances is ALWAYS our choice. It’s not what happens to you, it’s how you handle it, perceive it, respond to it, comply with it. Here’s a bright idea>>> sway it all in your favor! Imagine>> (think, feel, visualize) the best outcome, the most beneficial dynamic, harmony, synergy, advantageous coincidence! Why? BECAUSE YOU CAN! #Boss

Last weekend a young man asked me how I remain so positive. “It seems all the negativity in the world doesn’t affect you,” he said. I had no more than a minute with the young man so I offered this: It’s all about where you choose to put your attention, and I choose to be happy.”

— Jason Mraz

OWN YOUR POWER Card

by: Indie Goes Software App via Self Love Oracle Cards

{Changing the world is easier after one has learned to change oneself. Be the change you wish to see, & your world will shift.

We play victim whenever we want to deny the steps we can take to change the situations around us. This is not to say that we are never at the mercy of circumstances outside of ourselves. But this card reminds you that there is always something you can do, even if it’s to change your attitude and responses, and to start making different choices.

Everything we face in our lives is a consequence of past personal and collective choices that we’ve made. It is sometimes too easy to throw up our hands and claim that there’s nothing else that we can do. Well, whatever we say is so, becomes so.

We need to become aware that we always have power over our choices. If we feel that we are forced into certain decisions because of circumstances, we may actually be shutting our doors and denying our responsibility of searching for alternate solutions or making a stand against coercion.

This card is a strong invitation to start looking at what you can do, not what you cannot. Take responsibility for where you are and look at all of your options, including those that you may not have considered before. You can then reclaim your power to determine where you’re going.}

That said, I know there are those of us who have harnessed & are working towards or have already thus mastered the Law of Attraction, the power of positivity, of laughter, of snapping back quickly. Kudos to those of us who keep our eyes on the prize & behave accordingly, seeking mindful living, health & wellness, gratitude, & a depth of greater understanding. Furthermore, I believe very strongly that men & women can behave graciously toward each other when prompted. There are most definitely good people in the world. We can be courageous instruments of peace when called. When the situation heralds a heroic deed, hero or heroes incarnate, humans will drum up & gather in the name of justice & salvation.

We will rescue & restore our fellow man to safety & security til the cows come home & then some. But that is instinct. Our powerful capabilities lie deep within us to save each other, gain triumph & victory over apparent “evil forces” outside ourselves.  But what about the inherent evil that has been cultivated, bred & spread within our hearts, minds & bodies for centuries on end? We are enemies of ourselves most of all, victimizers & victims to the max. And THIS, my friends… is what this book is about.

At worst, humanoids are creatures of lust & hate, dreamers with dark hearts that have secret penchants for a spectrum of poisonous indulgences. A fast food drive thru can be found almost around every single corner in most towns & cities worldwide. I heard a guy say once, that in certain parts of Florida, there are more “Pain Clinics” than McDonalds’. America has multiple chains of smoke shops & vape stores. {More than 3.6 million CHILDREN used E-Cigs in 2018. 1 in 5 high school students use E-Cigs}

TODAY, as I write these words, the Surgeon General sounded an ALARM on Vaping. The U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams, issued a WARNING, calling it an “epidemic” & a massive threat to public health. “Our youth & teens are in serious jeopardy,” he stated. The carcinogens & mind-altering nicotine in these pens & pipes are harmful to the developing brain, lungs, throat & overall health. It might not be LSD, bong hits, E pills, or kegger parties these days, but kids today sure do know how to inhale that almighty nic fit saturated vaper cloud. (guilty!)

We have multiple chains of liquor stores, hookah lounges, kava & kratom bars, weed bars, wine bars, breweries, vineyards, sex shops, strip clubs, brothels, casinos, addictive gaming & gambling outlets, pharmacy after pharmacy, kill stations we call farms that mass produce animals for all the products we lavishly require daily.

We consume sugar, soda, meat, dairy & high fructose corn syrup way past any reasonable limit. Our bodies fight & kick & scream daily. Our bodies work so hard to keep us healthy, toxin free, energetic, disease free, limber, flexible, strong & restorative. But we challenge it constantly. We abuse our bodies, poison our minds, sting our hearts with anger, fear, frustration, stress, resentment, jealousy & self-loathing. The human being is a bittersweet specimen. While compassionate & kind, we are reckless & irrational. While grateful & generous we are blamers & thieves. We all live on the same block.

Not to mention, regarding the “hate” part, our jails, prisons, penitentiaries, work release programs & juvenile detention centers are all overflowing, over crowded, backed up & more populated with inmates than ever before in human history.

Did someone say: “Prison Industrial Complex?”

That said, adding to the greed machine we call government, there is basically a bounty on each & every one of those heads, to keep them locked up, or caught in the system. Our so called “fair” judicial system conveniently referred to as the “Dept of Justice,” was designed with all kinds of deliberate pitfalls so to be a revolving door for the sake of business.

To validate this even further, Prisons have now become privatized. Prisons have owners, investors & people that buy stock in them. When they are built or expanded, it is a new space that needs inventory. So, from a business standpoint, these jail houses must then secure & proliferate product which will generate profit. Bodies are their most valuable product, convicted criminals their pay dirt, recidivism their Ace in the hole. The Court system, the prisons & local politicians are all in bed with each other, for a buck. Keeping the supply high, with arrests & convictions that never end. Keeping everybody’s belly full & pockets fat. It’s the name of the game.

{According to the Vera Institute of Justice, incarceration costs an average of more than $31,000 per inmate, per year, nationwide. In some states, it’s as much as $60,000. Taxpayers foot the bill for feeding, housing and securing people in state and federal penitentiaries. May 19, 2017}

Our prisons are chock full of men & women alike who repeatedly commit crimes against their neighbor as a lifestyle. Whether it is due to low income, poor education, ghetto demographics, OR NOT, there is a metropolis of all types of people turned criminals who are hemmed up in the system for all types of reasons. Crime doesn’t discriminate. Humans are prone. Black, white, blue, red, rich or poor. From dirty cops, to the “shooter,” to the Ponzi scheme frauds, the backyard gun slingers, dope smugglers, petty thieves, aggravated assaulters, prostitutes, johns, drunks, rapists, molesters, killers, drug addicts, sex traders, terrorists, bullies, bank robbers. And what’s worse? Rehabilitation for these folks is scant. Prisons more likely produce droves of people in & out of that revolving door that are better criminals than when they got there.

When they are released, most of these people barely have “reintegration” programs, “anger management” classes, therapy, counselling, job placement assistance, support groups… especially for men. Rather, they have Parole Officers who are waiting to violate them. These guys have children & families they must learn how to reengage with. Most convicts have poor coping skills for real world living. Everything is provided for them in the “three hots & a cot” realm of robot lock up. Not to mention, they have built walls behind those walls, to likely protect themselves. Hearts have been hardened. Nothing good ever came from a cold, or closed, broken, barrier laden, armored heart.

Incarceration in the United States is one of the main forms of punishment and rehabilitation for committing felony and other offenses. We have the largest prison population in the world, and the highest per-capita incarceration rate. In 2016 in the US, according to stats floating around online, there were 655 people incarcerated per 100,000 population. This is the US incarceration rate for adults or people tried as adults.

Do you really know who your neighbors are? Many people just pass time. They just sit around & wonder why they are nowhere with nothing, while they binge watch another endless paradoxical drama likely saturated with distorted realities. Instead of striving to be better, more enhanced versions of themselves, they breed mixed feelings, laziness, lack, limitation, loss, worry, fear, & bad genes of dysfunctional stories, bad habits & conflicted programs. They continue the unsavory trends of delusion.

People seem to have this diluted sense of self. They grovel at the foot of a dictator God called “He” & then run around town with a false sense of sovereignty. This counterfeit sovereignty eventually fails them because they have forfeited personal responsibility, as if some great deity in the sky is in autonomous control. Then they blame God when something bad happens. Religion is a big toilet that needs to be flushed. Spirituality is what’s real. Spirituality is being true to the Divinity in oneself. Religion is a business. Religion is a busted bicycle that has a wobbly tire & only one set of brakes that half ass work. Spirituality is an internal quiet commitment to honor the God in yourself & everyone else equally. Hence the meaning of the word: Namaste.

Amen, means: Yes! In this case, Yes! to the lies. Yes! to a corpse hanging from a tree that came to save us all from our sinner selves. Jesus Christ is a historic figurehead whom with which likely lived on this Earth with a sincere sacred mission to make an instrumental mark on humanity. And YES! He did learn & develop via the Eastern teachings of Eastern religion, the Kabbalah & the Great Ancient & wise nomads that fasted & meditated, practiced Yoga & Tantra & Zen life & essentially are responsible for the Zen culture trends that we have today. Unlike what the Bible reveals, this Jesus savior dude studied at the University of Buddha.

WWJD? This slogan is viral because Jesus was a perfect example of what a person should look like, when living out a righteous life path here, in this earthly 3-dimensional reality. Why does religion feel this compelling need to keep spinning this died, buried & rose from the dead tale? Why is this crucifixion story at the center of every single service & sermon? Christian radio stations beat a dead horse over & over & over with this hanging on a cross story. It’s nauseating & exhausting. He died for your sins? Took away the sin of the world? God gave his only son… to save us from ourselves? Great… let’s be done with it then. Give it a rest. Let’s move on.

This is my daily affirmation: (Say it along with me!)

“The Sovereign sword of my conscious awareness cuts through the mire of disdain and disorder and dysfunction and disconnection and disillusion and disaster, disappointment, & discontent. I free unhealthy attachments, obsessions & what no longer serves me here. I release all expectations & live in the now fully. I am seated within perfect love & illumined by the God Force, empowered by peace. Wellness is my eternal state. Warm vibrations clothe me. I trust the processes of life. I know the blessed Universe is my sole provider. The Universe is my unlimited source. Abundant prosperity is a constant flow even within the ides of polarity. My soul is bright, glowing & on fire with a passion for expanding love, light & prosperous gain. I am rich, rewarded & worthy of recognition. I am a channel for ascension on Gaia & an intermediary transmitting the promise of peace to all warrior souls. I am cleansed, purified & sanctified within the moment of now. All is forgiven. All is Grace. Resentments fade. I am free!”

Life is all about belief. It’s all that matters. It’s from where all else stems. It is packed with all the nooks and crannies that compose & comprise a life of experiences. The region of us where thoughts roam & frolic is the brain. Picture a big giant grassy backyard where a bunch of different kinds of kids & dogs are at play just jumping & frolicking about, splishy splashy through the sprinkler or tossing a ball. These thoughts that roam & frolic are the individual threads that weave the fabric of our beliefs. What we then thus believe, we live out & experience thereof.

Some of these beliefs are buried. Ingrained so deep into the depths of our subconsciousness that we are totally unaware that they are undermining our good or sabotaging our greatness in the present. Consequently, we are baffled. We may blame others or circumstances for our undesirable experiences, totally disregarding that whatever occurs in our personal landscape is due solely to our beliefs, whether visible to the rational mind or not.

The consciousness of our minds is a tricky animal. It is invisible & intangible & so many times a challenge to see, grasp or hold into place. It could thereof be rather easy to dismiss or not take responsibility for. But be advised… the multifaceted & layered dimensions of our consciousness are very important for us to unveil, garden, tidy up, spring clean, weed, prune, groom, thus maintain, preserve, protect & praise. Our beliefs are seated in that backyard. Those beliefs are the culprits to all that we experience & express, create & manifest. It’s very crucial to know what kinds of beliefs they are. So rationally, we may rewire as needed. Realigning ourselves to what is true, right, useful & practical & positively progressive from all the wrong concepts we may have been taught, trained or brainwashed to believe from past programs & patterns & people’s flawed projections & shoddy or shady influences.

I really do believe that I have more goodness in my pinky finger than many choice folks have in their whole body. By no means, does this imply I’m a flawless little Angel. It just means this: murderers & rapists may love their mothers & pets, have gardens & know how to whip up a good bowl of pasta but, that doesn’t mean they are good people. Redeeming qualities in a psychopath don’t make him any less of a savage force of reckless behavior. I am a firm believer in the inherent goodness in people, but not all people tap into it. They basically run around their whole lives with screaming potentials (literally) dying to be fulfilled. Dr. Wayne Dyer talks about having music left in you, never getting your song out. Droves of folks live & die without ever tuning in.

Or, people run around, rather, nourishing the darkness within them instead of the light & their inherent goodness lies dormant until their soul is set free at physical death. Then, they get yet another go of it via reincarnation, or they meld into some ethereal energy abyss where they can just be miserable the whole live long day in some false ether world miscreated on the astral plane somewhere. Don’t quote me on that, but you know what I mean.

I am not in the business of hurting people, shaming people, condemning or criticizing, I am in the business rather, of justice & truth, plain & simple. That said, multiple individuals in the natural proprietary blend of the world population are oppressive, unloving, cruel, misguided, greedy, self-absorbed, self-centered, & self-serving. Like an antiquated black & white horror movie eerily flickering in the corner of a creepy dark room, the people of the world have been hypnotized like zombies, strung up like slaves, & utterly brainwashed, in a most ghastly tormented way. We have built & bred a culture & civilization of suffering, sickness, disease, pain, fear, heartache, anger, violence, injustice, backwards beliefs, unnecessary sacrifice, blindness, numbness, limit, lack, self-loathing & self-pity that weakens our spirit, drains our bodies, corrupts the files of our minds & sucks our souls right out like a villainous vacuum cleaner.

Who are the ringleaders? Who is the captain? Who is the sheriff of Shitshowtown? Well, anyone who exercises, & enforces leadership & authority with fear & control, deprivation, intimidation, manipulation, tyranny, dichotomy, bureaucracy, fascism, racism, sexism, terrorism, war, destructive division, & harmful competition. The insidious implementation of these morally bankrupt things/thugs has turned our world into a breeding ground of humans that are significantly subpar & devoid of honest principles & authentic intentions.

The planet has now been decorated with a bunch of misunderstood mutants holding on to each other for dear life. We live in a land of crawlers instead of walkers. The planet is strewn with people who believe their own lies & concede to produce & perpetuate whole generations of pissants & Pinocchios. The sludge is beginning to float to the top. It is time to call it like it is. Don’t mind if I do.

Some might say I need sensitivity training, but I say:

GFY.

(Acronym for: Go-Fuck-Yourself).

Yep, I really just said that.

About the Author

My name is Jenay (JZapp), I was born in the hurricane season circa 1974, which makes perfect sense, because I certainly do like ta shake shit up. I am a writer. I write & write & write, that’s what I do. I came out of the womb with a fat lip from fighting off the earthlings tryin’ to pull me out onto this godforsaken land. No doubt I was snapping gum (if a toothless baby could snap gum), sporting a green sun visor, brandishing a pen & white legal pad, making lists & taking notes. It was September 18th, which was the five year anniversary of the death of Jimi Hendrix, bell-bottoms were en vogue, Eric Clapton’s cover of “I Shot the Sheriff” just hit the Billboard top 100, & it was fondly the era of the sexual revolution, better known as “Free Love.”

I knew how to write before I could talk or walk if that makes any sense. If writing was a faucet of running gold…. I would be the Queen of England, Egypt, and 12 other great empires. I would live in a golden castle with a golden cat & eat golden cucumbers. Diamond chips would be shooting out of my fingertips. Writing is what I do best. It’s how I live. It’s what I know. It’s timeless. It’s healing. It’s cathartic. It releases unwanted emotions. It exonerates. It liberates. It validates. It vindicates. It provides resolutions, answers, clues, closure, knowledge, information, wisdom, comic relief & enlightenment. I NOW HAVE THREE published books available on Amazon.com.

I am most definitely a wordsmith. Frankly, I have way too much fun with words, I can’t resist. I have some serious spunk & there’s no denyin’ my audacious attitude. I am my own brand of freelance writer & reporter of current, relevant, buzzworthy topics. I write colorful articles, create moods, stir things up, am brutally honest & have no apologies, & if ya don’t like me, oh well.

I’d like to think that my writing style is a blended firestorm of bursting color, & a healthy trail mix of Saturday Night Live, Sarah Silverman, Marisa Peer, Esther Hicks, Bob Marley, Bono, Kathy Lee & Hoda, Jimmy Fallon & a tiny sweet little dash of the Royal Renegade of radio… Dr. Michael Savage. I am a melting pot of many influential people. You don’t have to agree with me. I don’t have to always be right. I will say it how I see it, anyway.
I am a poet. I claim poetic license to the max, in or out of rhyme. I am an Artist of Word Art. What I write is deliberate. The English language is a “living” language that is still evolving. It’s not Latin. “Proper” grammar or sentence structure, etcetera, etcetera… may or may not apply here, thereof. So those of you who either may be nitpickers or English majors, put on some sunglasses, put your feet up, & flip on some tunes, cause nobody’s countin’ commas at this party.

If you read through my blog (Tap FOLLOW!)… you will find that I am a bit of a diplomat, pleasantly patriotic and am quite an ambassador for female empowerment and principles. I’m also a tried & true Culinary Grad, a foodie for sure, & recently embarked upon a Vegan lifestyle, so I feature plenty of nutrient-rich intel. As a “recovered addict,” reformed Catholic, abuse & rape survivor, I am a significant advocate for addicts, those in recovery, victims of abuse, animal rights, anyone ready to embrace their power & improve the quality of their life. I wear a hero helmet most days that reads: “power to the people” on the front, and “justice” on the back. I believe in equality, respect, unity, peace, & the eternal Divine force of Universal Law.

Furthermore, I am an Empath. This means I have the gift of clairsentience which loosely translated, means: “clear sensing.” And thus, I have a supersonic capacity to feel, sense energy & experience everything in detailed technicolor. Empathic souls absorb more than non-empathic people. We typically have a deeper understanding of life… & not by choice. We are born sensitives. I literally feel the pain of a wine-soaked drowning fruit fly. It gets even more amplified when I’m high… lol. Look out! She’s a philosopher!

This hyper-developed sensory perception has given me the ability to channel intel from higher dimensions, & over years of continued contact, I have become fluent in these transmissions via writing. In addition, empaths are the arch nemesis of narcissists… which is probably why I tend to have a bone to pick (more like 5 or 10) with any kind of controlling, egocentric, self- serving, dictatorial non-diplomacy.

What I stand for is non-denominational, non-affiliated, nonpartisan & all-inclusive. I am an amplifier of goodness & Light. It could be said that I am a proactive agent for the greater good. I espouse positive thinking. I consider myself a leader in the Conscious Revolution, a Light Guide/Life Coach/Spiritual advisor all rolled into the cool girl next door. Thanx for reading!
Namaste🙏

Crown of Thorns: Let it burn!

48336209_303

With all due respect, I pay my deepest regard for the loss incurred by the Cathedral of Notre Dame fire. Parisians have my deepest condolences. I traveled to Paris once in my life at age 24. I paid a visit to this sacred tourist attraction. When I entered the Church, I was in awe of its ancient charm & magnificence. I couldn’t help but notice the depth of the ceilings, & I became very anxious. I began wondering intently about how  awesome the acoustics might sound, so I immediately began to drum up the courage to sing.

fixedw_large_4x

I was a bohemian musician back in those days, who was pretty brazen to say the least. Like no one was watching, I belted out a loud melodious stream of consciousness that seemed to echo to the high Heavens. I didn’t care who was paying attention, I knew I had only this once in a lifetime, fleeting opportunity. My voice echoed immensely bouncing off the reverberating antiquated cathedral ceilings that seemed to rattle the stained glass. “I got to sing in the Cathedral of Notre Dame,” I thought! “Super rad, wait til I tell all my friends!”

So, it’s not like I don’t understand the beautiful, timeless grace this remarkable space embodied. The Cathedral of Notre Dame was nothing less than a gorgeous Gothic gem shrouded in mystique. I get it. I’m a fan.

However…

With regard to the Cathedral’s significant damage, can someone tell me how ONE BILLION DOLLARS was raised so fast? In honor of the rebuilding process, the Cathedral’s “Go Fund Me” page (if they had one) was on fire too. The French president, Emmanuel Macron, claims it will allegedly take an ADDITIONAL ONE BILLION DOLLARS to complete the 5-10 year job. Lets do the math, shall we? Thats, ummm…. yes!

TWO BILLION DOLLARS.

TWO BILLION DOLLARS to rebuild an old church? What about all the poor, homeless, sick or dying, starving people that a CHURCH is actually SUPPOSED TO clothe, feed & shelter? What about what a church STANDS FOR? Doesn’t a church aspire to expand love, peace, compassion, healing, & nourishment?

Who gives a flying rats ass about a fucking spire, when you have thousands of human people, children & animals suffering across this fuckin’ unbalanced planet?

How did the world community raise ONE BILLION dollars in just 3 days for a fucking building?

The world community should really do some soul searching here. The French president & the congregation & ministry OF THE NOTRE DAME CHURCH… should think hard about how they decide to spend that ONE BILLION OR TWO.

What would Jesus do… you ask?

Feed, clothe, shelter, spread that wealth among the people who need it everywhere. Fund programs, fund causes, finance missionary endeavors to save the Planet & the people in it.

ONE BILLION DOLLARS is ALOT of money. TWO BILLION DOLLARS could feed everyone on this Earth for the next 5 years, probably.

I don’t disagree with the rebuilding of a sacred iconic monument said to have housed Jesus’ crown of thorns. But, think about it… that crown of thorns, which was salvaged BTW, is a symbol of SUFFERING. That crown of thorns was maliciously placed on Jesus’ head to humiliate him, debase his character of love, peace & unity & shame everything godly & good.

“Priest Jean-Marc Fournier is credited with dashing into the burning Notre Dame Cathedral on Monday to save its most sacred relic.” —nypost.com

He was praised as a hero, for God’s sake, for SAVING an outdated, afflicted, thorny, sinner crown that essentially added insult to injury to the great Jesus Christ at his weakest hour. I would have LET IT BURN!! LET IT BURN!!!!! And let all that horrible shit that it represents… go up in flames with it!

Good thing I live in America & I have the freedom to speak the TRUTH> #grateful

“Spire, in architecture, steeply pointed pyramidal or conical termination to a tower. In its mature Gothic development, the spire was an elongated, slender form that was a spectacular visual culmination of the building as well as a symbol of the heavenly aspirations of pious medieval men.” —www.britannica.com

Did you hear that?? The spire is: THE SYMBOL OF THE HEAVENLY ASPIRATIONS OF PIOUS MEDIEVAL MEN.

Universal Law states: that outer circumstances, experiences & events reflect the state of the inner sanctity of man.

Which means, that the symbolic spire that burned up in flames & came crashing to the ground, was also a reflection of man’s HEAVENLY ASPIRATIONS going up in flames as well. The PIOUS MAN won, for all intents & purposes, for… THE CROWN OF THORNS (pious man) was SAVED!! What a shame. Damn.

My bad, maybe we should indeed care about the fucking spire. But in a totally different way.

My take on it? If that man thinks that it was so noble to SAVE that creepy haunted hoodoo relic with bad mojo… then going forward, he should rightfully use that GIANT LUMP SUM of ONE BILLION DOLLARS to help SAVE HUMANITY at large. The PIOUS MAN cannot be allowed to continue to win. This NOTRE DAME FIRE, essentially, was a BIG FAT symbolic WAKE UP CALL, my friends. And, how fitting… it happened in front of the whole wide world. Hmmmm.

Everything happens for a reason. Behind destruction, there is a GIFT. That gift in this case, you ask? An instant ONE BILLION DOLLARS. Makes sense, doesn’t it? I’m not being unreasonable. There are hidden meanings & analogies all over the damn place, here. Take off the blinders.

Keep it up, delusional people who care more about false idols than the TRUE MEANING behind them. Lest I remind you all, that KARMA IS A BITCH. She will renovate your ass, way more masterfully than any renovation of a damn building. And, that’s a promise.

Think it through, Papal people & those in office… CHOOSE WISELY.

The BOOMERANG is REAL.

Namaste,

Chapter 2: The Grand Old Politico

20190109_234834 (1)

I welcome you to the rough draft of the second chapter from my newest book which is due for release in just weeks. Fondly named>>>>

The Decline of Civility: How to rise to the occasion

 

“Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy. Make it. Protect it. Pass it on.”

—Thurgood Marshall

Chapter 2: The Grand Old Politico

I am a current events news junkie. I am non-party affiliated. I am an advocate for the American PEOPLE, period. I absorb information from my own chosen tailored outlets  & I stand proud of my influences & resources which will remain undisclosed for now. I will say though, The View is my talk show candy. Nothin’ like a panel of kick ass, strong, intelligent, stand up women to start my day, who always have the most brilliant guests, & a well-seasoned, well-educated, well-rounded team with standpoints from every direction to consider, evaluate & chew on.

I truly believe Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) should be our next president, & Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) his V.P. If you Google Corey Booker & see his Docuseries (“Brick City”) on how he renovated the poor, crime & drug infested streets of Newark New Jersey into a productive thriving community, you will understand why this man is a wonderful candidate. Kirsten Gillibrand is a tough as nails attorney & current New York Senator since 2009, who has a proven track record for fighting for rights. Whether it is women, sexual suits in the military, students, workers, families… this lady is who we want on our team. She is also a published Author of such titles as: Off the Sidelines: Speak Up, Be Fearless, and Change Your World. If that gives you an idea of her caliber. Google her. And hands down, I would gladly endorse Mister former Vice President Joe Biden as well. I gotta say, he is obviously a superior candidate just as similarly as John McCain was. The quality of his character & the caliber of his content is second to none. Can I get an Amen??

Good (moral & ethical), smart, wise, fearless, enlightened, aware, strong minded, ambitious, empathetic, honest, fair, genuine, positive, progressive, articulate people who stand firm for human rights & dignity… that have an excellent work ethic, track record & impressive resume… make good leaders, the right kind. Makes sense. Don’t ya think? Who cares what side (party) they’re on. It’s the quality of character that matters. Despite the court of public opinion, divisiveness, & the polarization of our Nation… electing a proper leader for the free world is a non-partisan issue, if ya ask me.

Politics aside, I think former President Obama is Super Fly, I miss his swagger & calming nature. Barack & Michelle are an A#1 class act & I’m not gonna lie, I miss their charming romance. It was like tea & cupcakes in the afternoon under a green fluffy tree on a happy hill. Ahhh, the good old days…

My candid opinion about the current dude in office is that Trump might appear to be a train-wreck, a cruel joke, or a page out of some sinister playbook, but… I honestly think the breakdown of everything is Awesome. Let’s look through the “love our enemy” lens for just one minute.

The guy is Awesome with a capital A, actually. Why? Because he went into an otherwise most sacred elected office & literally pissed all over it like a dog marking his territory with no shame, no rhyme or reason & no apologies & didn’t even take the government’s presidential salary, perks or benefit package. The guy gives new meaning to the word: unorthodox. El Trumpo is tearin’ his presidentalhood right the heck up. Let’s call it like it is. Whether you are for or against the guy, dem or GOP or in between, if yer living & breathing in this country today & have a TV of sorts, ya cannot deny the mark this guy is making.

Kudos to you, man… for keepin’ it fresh & keepin’ it real… despite nasty rumors, rhetoric, fake news, real news, & your lovely track record. Sometimes the best way to renovate something is to fetch the wrecking ball, have at it, then start from scratch. I’ll be damned if Mr. Trump isn’t facilitating that gracefully. Like a Pro, he just rather effortlessly, instigates & erupts change, in every direction, everywhere he goes. He is like an anomaly of sorts, lol.

From Main Street to Wall Street to Shakedown Street. Raid, renovate, remodel is the name of the game. Every time ya turn around, another tree’s on fire, there’s a cat fight in the ally, or the tweet bird is singing its high & mighty unsolicited buns off. Pretty rad. I know Bobby De Niro wouldn’t concur… sorry, sweetie, but what appears to be falling apart might actually be things falling into place. It’s all in the eye of the beholder. Hot mess? Or blessing in disguise…?

Donald Trump is certainly not responsible for the decline of civility, we have done that all by ourselves, over the course of some time now. But, I just felt like something had to be said. I was born in America & I believe in the power of our union & the binding principles of the constitution that this country was built upon. It doesn’t take a Political Science major to see that Donald Trump is no great patriot, he is a business man. Defying ANY prototype, the man is in a class of his own, quite frankly. Fondly referred to as “the great divider in Chief,” him & his goons have invaded the white house & now have relinquished control of the whole goddamn program, if you will, doing as they please without real opposition or consequence it seems. People fear him, & therefore keep their mouths shut essentially at this point, after witnessing his “clean sweep” of everyone who disagrees with him.

His voters, the peanut gallery, middle Americana, middle to low income demographics, buy into his not so charming rhetoric of being a mascot for the working class & underdog. I mean the guy did create significant tax cuts, create jobs, lower gas prices & smoothed out certain foreign leader relations, but honestly, the guy has a continuously running self-motivated agenda. Clearly, he has little authentic regard for all of us due to this, let alone the working-class citizens. Why? The government shutdown is why. It has been reported that there are 800,000 with blank paychecks today… all cause of him not getting his way.

I actually had respected Mister Trump as president, for many & various valid reasons for most of his presidency. I will admit, though not particularly “presidential,” I bought into his proven entrepreneurial track record, business savvy, unconventional tactics, & his “method behind madness” ways.  I honestly had conceded to allow him to govern as he saw fit. I disregarded his philandering ways, his uncouth demeanor & apparent obvious lying problem. I even kept my mouth shut around certain circles, because of how controversial it is to actually support him. But, I really did feel he had a certain what they call: Je nai sai quoi that actually, as uncouth as it may be, was ironically liberating us on some level as a country. At the very least Trump’s position has compelled people to wake up & is motivating the underdog to step up & run for offices & also lighting fires under otherwise complacent butts, if you will.

Howeverhear this Mister President, sir!

Last time I checked we lived in a free democracy not a communist/socialist dictatorship. This wild west modern-day standoff we have going on regarding the “borderwall” has the American Federal Government shut down & thousands of families without pay longer than ever in history. News media reported that the Coast guard “tip sheet” for their government employees on a hiatus said:

I quote…

“Have a garage sale, clean out your attic or basement, sell unwanted larger ticket items, offer to watch children, walk pets, house sit, turn hobbies into income, become a mystery shopper.” ????

WOW.

What—the—Fuck—is—happening?

This is NOT what our ancestors who migrated here to have a shot at the “American Dream” for themselves & their future families… signed up for. TO BE TOLD that they should scrimp & save, grub & scrounge & essentially collect cans to pay their rent & light bill. If I was one of those government workers on leave with a pregnant wife, sick kid & bills to pay… I would surely exclaim: “SUCK MY BIG FAT DICK, Mister Trump… you unempathetic, insensitive, rat bastard Russian dictator man. I WAS on your team, dude, (struggling to support my president, but still…) until ya pulled this one.”

This is America, land of the free, home of the brave, not a pigpen of partisan politics, where citizens are essentially deprived of their right to work & provide for their families due to feuding egos, stare down contests & temper tantrums.

No one disagrees with having tighter border security but honestly, there are far more COST EFFECTIVE & sophisticated ways to “build a wall.” There are far more sophisticated ways to detect drug smugglers & deter asylum seekers than a metallic wall that costs almost SIX billion (BILLION) dollars & takes a million years to build. Not to mention TAX PAYERS will wind up footing the bill??? And as big & as relevant as all of that is, it is actually BESIDE THE POINT>>>> Negotiate your little buns off all ya want El Chapo… oops, I mean El Trumpo, Nanc & Chuckster… but do it on yer own friggin time. Forcing an extended government shutdown is very damaging, dangerous & unconstitutional as far as I’m concerned & puts us all at risk as a Nation. That, Mister President… has gone too far, my friend.

It is my understanding that a bill to reopen the government has been on the table for quite some time now & Trump refuses to sign it. We can thank Rush Limbaugh & Ann Coulter for that. They basically threatened to publicly shame him if he signed it without the wall, & Trump cowered. COWARD! So now, the dude in the white House is holdin’ out like a toddler with his hands on his hips & stomping feet saying “No!” like a little bratty baby.

Anxiety is very high nationwide, people are beginning to  protest, to picket, tempers are flaring, fear is rampant, financial security compromised. This can cause great problems & ripple effects felt for years to come. Parents are having to pause extracurricular activities for their kids due to fees that cannot be paid at this time. Peoples whole lives are getting tossed upside down.  Folks are on the verge of losing their homes for god sake. 250 thousand veterans are not receiving their benefits. Certain air traffic control & TSA employees are absent causing a whole new kind of national security risk. Christ, I just heard they are SUING the federal government for lost wages etc etc. Not to mention, it was just announced that there is no salmonella control crew to inspect imported produce. The FDA (a government agency) is in charge of keeping our food safe for consumption. Day 25, The FAA is now ordering TSA safety inspectors back to work without pay, due to uninspected passenger planes. The fucking Coastguard is not being paid, for god’s sake. Both air & sea security is being compromised. Hmmmm, I wonder what kind of threat that might pose?

The American people are now subject to all kinds of dangers. These are just a few examples of the immense impact. Doesn’t Mr. Trump see how we must look to our enemies? Heck, who’s to say that our enemies abroad aren’t watching “dumbass” America fighting on the playground again distracted with our defenses down, & decide to pull some dirty attack. “Look ShahzadAkeemSamir! …America’s on strike again… round up the S-Bomber crew, dude!!”

Maybe that’s what Trump wants. He wants to inadvertently create an invasion that leads to a war, so we all have no choice but to unite & get behind him, (cause we are America, after all… hear us ROAR!) making it almost necessary to reelect him just like Bush did with 9-11. Am I lying?

Did someone say Military Industrial Complex?

Oh, that was me…

Military-industrial complex: network of individuals and institutions involved in the production of weapons and military technologies. The military-industrial complex in a country typically attempts to marshal political support for continued or increased military spending by the national government.

http://www.britannica.com

The Military Industrial Complex is the first of the “Big Business” sharks of our Nation I will speak about here. It is the richest, most powerful outfit in the world. The “War” business is the BIGGEST most capitalized on, corporation to have ever existed in the duration of human history.

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger & are not fed, those who are cold & are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.”

—Dwight Eisenhower Circa 1961

I am not opposed to retaining our military for services that protect & serve us as a Nation, I am not opposed to military spending as needed in a moderate way. President Trump did in fact withdraw our troops recently from Syria & Afghanistan… most likely so he could transfer the senseless military costs to a more personal project like his “wall.” He made the move of releasing our troops back home look like a noble play. He basically stood before the troops abroad one covert night & made a speech talking about how America should no longer be policing the world. I kinda like that idea. It makes perfect sense. However, Isis IS NOT DEFEATED. Trump & Pence keep exclaiming this false idea. Trump has retracted our troops for his own agenda… guaranteed. Hence, the Military Industrial Complex WILL prevail. It’s just a matter of time. Things are never what they seem in this government’s grand facade.

“Politics is the entertainment division of the Military Industrial Complex.” — Frank Zappa

I’m not currently, but I would like to be a proud gun owner. I am not against guns, I do believe in tighter back ground checks, more detailed applications, & mental evals, etc, etc. But, this “Military Industrial Complex’” Eisenhower is speaking of, is a very large BULL (bully) just eating up every single extra dollar we may ever have, while sacrificing the education of our children, & the health & welfare of our sick or impoverished citizens.

military-industrial-complex-cartoon

The dollar amount that pours into this Military Industrial Complex is so high, that it is almost unspeakable. They have lobbyists, & ambassadors that sell fabricated scare tactics instilling fear into the public, so folks agree to support “the protection” that Military & national security measures provide. These grand safety measures are truly not necessary at the great lengths that these people deceptively profess. It’s a big LEGAL scam.

Meanwhile… teachers are on strike (yet again & again & again), government workers, middle America, & students in debt are the casualties. So much money all going to weapons & war, when it could be evenly distributed to the proper channels. We would thrive, then. We would flourish. We would be a debt free, non-struggling people. The middle-class society at war with eachother would cease to exist. We would be nourished & blessed & progressive & grateful… so much MORE, than we are now. The M.I.C. is STEALING from us daily, while endorsing WAR on a grand international scale as a means to keep the “business” booming.

That… is… fucked up, man.

When is enough enough??? Yep… smoke & mirrors, people… smoke & mirrors.

By the time this book jumps off, the “shutdown” will likely have blown over. But I am recording these events right now in real time, to demonstrate what is happening in this current administration. We are living through this & will continue to live through this. One day, our children’s children will be reading about these times in a text book. (Hopefully written by a fearless unbiased transparent Author) like me. We can only hope.

Circa 2018: Addiction is not a disease

tumblr_n1muhgzuE01ts33m5o1_500

Listen to Blog Article HERE!>>>>

It takes Demi Lovato to get a Narcan shot back to life for people to restart a conversation about addiction? What about Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Chris Cornell, Tom Petty, Michael Jackson, Shannon Hoon, Layne Staley, Scott Weiland, Whitney Houston… shall I go on??

Do you know how many times I witnessed right before my eyes… an overdose, someone turn cold, turn blue, drop to the floor, eyes roll back, & First Responders were called to the scene to administer a Narcan shot to save their lives? DOZENS, on the streets of Philadelphia, daily, back in the 90s & early 2000s. What about the 1000s EVERY DAY across the country dropping like flies, selling their bodies & souls? These people are nameless, faceless, & go unnoticed every single day just because they are “insignificant citizens,” or laypeople, if you will. Dozens right this minute are shooting poison into their veins. Every second in America, kids are getting that deadly sweet rush from a little blue bag or a crushed up Opiod pill. Heroin & Opiod pills, subutex, suboxone, fentanyl patches, methadone are all one in the same, if ya ask me.

With all due respect… Demi Lovato takes one too many pills, & all of a sudden the news media & online community holds up candles & sets balloons free into the sky & then holds a god damn conference on the “disease” of addiction & how it’s just like Cancer… but WORSE… they just said on GMA. Wow. What a misnomer, if I ever heard one.

Addiction is NOT A DISEASE. It’s a product of an unhealed society, war, a dysfunctional culture, poverty & low income demographics, a broken educational system, broken family dynamics, abused & mistreated children, cold closed hearts, malnourished souls & unhealthy eating. Addiction is a mistake, that must be learned from in order to not repeat. Flawed behavior, flawed patterns & programs… that must be redirected & then rewired. Morbidly obese people feel the same irresistible propensity toward food that “addicts” do toward substance abuse. The only “disease” we should be addressing is the dis-EASE or non peace in the mind, heart, body & soul that resulted from various buried, built up, accrued reasons via past pains & past lives. In the case of a person in the throes of an active addiction, the “wounded craving center” just so happens to have a louder mouth than the soul’s clear expression.

There is a very easy solution for the problem of addiction… CLEAR TOXIC KARMA, & rebuild from the inside out with SELF LOVE. What is self love you ask? Well, we learn how to love ourselves properly & efficiently via developing a connection with our higher self. The problem with our society today, is that everyone seems to be “spiritually bankrupt” for all intents & purposes. The only true way to experience self love is via having a relationship with our light bodies, not just our physical ones. We connect & develop this by learning how to meditate, not self medicate. We learn mindfulness & gratitude, communion with nature, clean eating, Chakra recalibration, breath & body work, reconnecting with our Divinity.

{Calling all serial rehabers, “lifers,” addicts & recovering addicts….!}

Join a wellness center, a hot yoga class, get acupuncture, Reiki, a good massage… heck… run a friggin marathon or join a gym, stir up those trusty endorphins! Work with a holistic recovery center or healer. Get some balls, get help, ween off the shit, whittle down your desire, practice a little good ole fashion self-discipline, & CHOOSE to walk down a cleaner path. CHOOSE different people, places, & things. Relapses happen. So what. One day, THEY JUST WON’T ANYMORE. Score!

Why? Cause ADDICTION IS NOT A DISEASE. It is a symptom of a malfunctioning mind that must be rebooted, like you would a computer. If a person wants to be free enough from the merry go round of fruitless addiction… They can CHOOSE to walk along a different path. No one is CHAINED to an addictive disposition. Just because nature, nurture, mental illness, depression, criminal behavior, indigence, a bad marriage, bad parents, bad habits, self pity, or poor education, hygiene & nutrition play a role in keeping a person stuck in a negative pattern of weakness… doesn’t mean an obese person cannot lose weight with diet & exercise. An addictive personality can retrain the brain just as well… if they seek to.

No one said it was a walk in the park, sunshine & daydreams, ice cream cones & lollipops… everything in life is a process, but it sure as shit pays off in the end, & definitely beats hitting rock bottom like a dumb ass every time the high wears off. Come join the grown ups… we have fun too. Our fun doesn’t crash or withdraw.

I wrote TWO BOOKS. CLICK BELOW.  There is a big giant Health/Wellness/Recovery Resource Guide in the back of “Magnetic Prosperity,” (book #2) which is also available on Kindle for your convenience. “Magnetic Prosperity” will also be available on AUDIBLE… coming soon!
