“The Rising Rate of Obesity Equals the Rising Rate of Political Divisiveness”

With all the political wrangling and mongering, backstabbing, lying and cheating as a consistent and constant diet, no wonder the nation is obese. Seriously! The more everyone stays fed on the divisive and derisive menu, the sicker and fatter our nation becomes. Literally.

BF57811B-198C-41C2-934B-C9BB34176D51

Lets look at stats. I’m a believer in ratios and statistics to help clarify:

Obesity rates from 1990-2016: Obesity is usually determined by BMI (body mass index) measurements. Someone with a BMI of 30 or more is considered obese.
From 1990 to 2016, the average percentage of obese adults increased from 11.1% (for the 44 states and DC for which 1990 data are available) to 29.8%. As of 2016, nearly 38% of the US population was obese, with 8% falling into the extreme obesity category. Some states actually exceed 35% obesity
rates. These are scary stats. Not too mention the other huge reality: the majority of both young and old today are on average 15-30 lbs overweight which we consider normal – it is Not!

America! What is wrong with you?

Now let’s compare the state of the union and giant chasm that engulfs America:

The bottom line is this: Across 10 measures that Pew Research Center has tracked on the same surveys since 1994, the average partisan gap has increased from 15 percentage points to 36 pointsIn other words there are so many feeling disenfranchised, victimized and whatever “izement” going, our beliefs about what is right or wrong continue to widen, the gulf between left and right becoming broader than the Atlantic.

Fascinating right? We are being spoon fed negativity by the tons, yet everyone stills eats from the same resources. (I was going to say troughs.) Don’t you think it’s time for a change-up in menus with new creative and healthy recipes in lifestyle and neighborly kindness? Goodness being extended across the aisles? Where are America’s values? In essence where is our self value?

Truth is a national change in obesity and political chasms will never change unless you and I both decide not to drink the damn koolaide. Stop the madness. Quit bickering, picking fights, harassing and complaining. Be pro-active not con-active. Decide to go on a diet of goodness, rich ideas and kindness to all. Treat everyone like we want to be treated. It’s a very simple recipe even our kindergarteners can learn and digest. And of course, stop eating sugar, wheat, processed and chemically-heavy foods!

A2EEDCCD-D297-4F9F-A9E0-AA175340C500

Every single second of every single moment of every single day we are graced by being on the planet, we have a choice. A choice to believe in the best. A choice to act on the best. A choice to be our best. And of course lose the negativity, lose the weight. Everyone will feel better with the positive ramifications spreading into our futures. We can choose to be healthy!

Be mindful of what you Fuel your mind and body on; it will determine your personal future.

We all create our own reality. It is universal law on a planet of attraction; like attracts like.

 

Cosmic sunshine to you.

“How Long?”

 

31D60E86-F9C8-4CB6-A6E8-32851DA8BF35

How long do we hold ourselves hostage

beat ourselves up over emaciated stories

quadmired in debilitating whirlpools

swirling counter clockwise

before we stop the destruction

forgive ourselves

let the present moment navigate our choices

rather than allowing the past dictate our decisions?

How long?

 

Our self imposed prisons

locked tight by our own keys

filter in light

even while we shut our eyes

keeping us in self recriminating darkness.

We thrive in the torment.

How long? Seriously?

How long is the sentence

before we decide to

create new stories?

*****

This is a-wake-the-hell-up

come-to-Jesus-moment

to stop the madness

get a grip

stepping into what we are here

to embrace

be

become.

its time to spin clockwise

create the orbit

of our hidden dreams.

It’s time.

 

 

Cosmic sunshine to you. ☀️

*for Veronica ~ and you did!

“For Everything There is a Season”

 

Another season wrapped up. Already.  Time moves so quickly, I feel it in my bones how essential it is to value each moment, each day, every week. Put this into perspective: time. Mt St Helens blew her gorgeous top 38 years ago. Already. I remember the day it happened; May 18th. I was living in Salem and could see the blowing ash plumes cascading across the sky. What a monumental North American event.

This is the Lewis river today. My St Helen’s boulders, sand and silt loaded the local rivers like a tsunami, catastrophic destruction in the wake. Today, 38 year’s later this area of the river is normally under the waters of Swift Reservoir,  yet due the lateness of the season, the Corp has drained-the-swamp as the old saying goes, gearing for winter’s onslaught. You can see Helen’s sand still covering the river bed, creating a delta extending the beach to the west. In fact, this area where Charlie the wonder dog and I are walking added enough sand, silt and ash in 1980 to raise the lake bottom by 40 feet making it shallower and more hazardous for boats. There’s an area I call the graveyard as it’s filled with fishing line, hooks and paraphernalia having gotten caught in the old tree stumps that are right below the surface. When the water is low, the area in front of my off-grid cabin looks like beach frontage.

Because of low water levels, people seeking recreation have been scarce. Not that there are ever a lot, it’s fairly unpopulated. This year more so making my off-grid living extra quiet and peaceful. It’s been phenomenal for the wild life too. The eagles, hawks, cranes, ducks, geese, otters and myriads of other species are more prolific. There has been a goose crying distressfully several nights for her mate who hadn’t returned to their rendezvous point. It was quite sad. She has subsequently flown to warmer meadows.

Due to my connectedness with nature I can empathize and feel the emotions of the various species. Trust me other than the reptiles and amphibians they feel, they love, they grieve. Every piece of creation has consciousness!  I believe with every cell in my body if and when humankind actually works, connects and communicates with the various levels of nature we can turn this planet around environmentally. Earth is an abundant planet.  If there’s scarcity it’s because we’ve created it, made it so with our beliefs, when in fact, there’s enough for everyone. There’s no need for greed.

5C5469FB-D207-432E-AC4E-F053D54E364D

I hang out in nature, fearless. I’m alone 90% other than my fab furry friends. Moving back into society is great and wonderful however my heart is already embracing when I can return again next spring.

6D8B7A6E-1862-4B1D-89E2-EBCEEE8BA6EE

Mt St Helen’s is right behind me beyond the ridge. I can see her strong ridges, crevasses, glaciers and lahar’s from the hill I climb in the photo above and from the waters of the Lewis.

My invite: hang with the trees and rocks and creeks and rivers. The wildlife. Listen. Ask for connection. It’s essential we all learn to communicate with nature, not just a few of us out-there people. Remember everything has consciousness. Even if it’s a local park, make it a priority. We can change the planet when we do.

 

Cosmic sunshine to you☀️

PS: My vet told me Charlie is living on love and in my view duck tape and magic. He’s 12, blind, has had auto immune since he was 1. And he’s still going. He’s a wonder! ❤️

“Happily Ever After”

Okay. I admit it. I was raised on Cinderella, Snow White and all those happily ever after Disney films that made every young’s girl heart flutter with possibilities.  I grew up with those romantic ideals and love notions compactly stored inside my heart. I was very discerning along the dating path and kept my sights high, my vision of the prince ever-present in the back reaches of my mind. I met a successful, handsome, Montana man with charm and charisma. We were married, had two sons. Cinderella had a bit of a set-back, the idealized notion of love thwarted and squashed. Eventually I intellectualized my emotions, instead of emotionalizing my intellect. Kept my heart safe. Divorce ensued. I married again, Cinderella once again resurrected. I was crazy-giddy in love, happily ever after written in the stars. Well, that didn’t happen either; life had other plans called cancer.

ACB139B2-87A8-40A5-9316-9C2754ACE1BB

Once in a deeply committed relationship I still lean to that romantic Cinderella ideal. Scary right, how deeply rooted stories and myths are imbedded into our psyches? My psyche, my belief patterns. I have visions of the love-link being so strong there is no room for a wandering eye, the relationship being the center of the love fulcrum, sex and intimacy a driving force, an alchemical union of thought and form. An intuitive intellectual pursuit of expansion mirroring each other, holding each to their best. I know. I’ve experienced this. 

Here’s the best twist. I still believe in happily ever after. Why not? Just because there have been other life lessons along the way there’s absolutely no reason I (we) can’t create happily ever after. I believe our fairy tales, stories and myths are reminders life is supposed to be happy, merry, rich-in-love, with happily ever after written all over them. However, this is the fundamental chapter that got left out of the fairy tales: we are the creator’s of our own story, our fable. When we take complete responsibility for our lives in every quadrant, (when we are Response-Able) we then are fully empowered to step up to our highest ideals. We become pro-active in the process. Everything along the way takes on heightened color, our senses alert and alive to the beauty and magnificence of the ride. We fall in love with life. Our happily ever after becomes reality. And if we choose to open-up to a one-on-one relationship again, a partner with the same ideals, values and beliefs (*when we are in alignment with our cosmic selves, the grander part of our essence) arrives in our kingdoms to share happily ever after no matter our juncture or decade.

Grab that pen, write your weekly fairy tale. Seek that true love within, seeing life in all its glory. Believe like I do, that fairy tales really do exist and come true.

Happily ever after begins right now!

 

Cosmic sunshine to you.

 

*Being in alignment with ourselves and the cosmic essence within is the vital and even critical piece to creating the best love match we desire, otherwise we attract an unbalanced relationship. As always it begins with us!

“Seriously, I’ve Heard it All”

You might think I’m fibbing or a bit off with my title statement, but it’s pretty true. In my world, people are open and willing to share their darkest truths, revelations and stories. Honestly I don’t care what people have done, it’s their story, as long as their actions, thoughts and intent are honest, true and congruent with their heart, their inner core. Their soul. Therein lies the hiccup. Too many lie to themselves.

I’ve dealt with death, murder, embezzlement, infidelity, mutilple sex partners from 2-6 to orgy, to the sex trade, satanic mutilations on children, reptilians, other-worldly energies trapped in human physicality, drug abuse/heavy addictions, psychic hitchhikers, entities, UFO abductees, partners watching their spouse having sex with someone else, obesity, self mutilation, suicide. What am I forgetting? I have stories. Most people’s stories are tame in comparison. Bottom line is everyone wants to be happy with themselves, with life, with the world. Happy with their choices, no shame, no blame, no resentments, angers or hurts. Ironically if you really get to the core of any of it, all of it, the motivation behind the behavior is essential to understand, to ferret out, to make sense of the story. What motivates people to do the things they do? The things their moral compass knows are pointing them due cattywhampus?

Usually it’s fear ironically. The fear of not being enough, the fear of being looked at as a wimp, a sissy, not man enough, woman enough, sexually avant-garde enough, not rich enough, successful enough, beautiful enough, fear of being left, fear of not being lovable, of wanting to prove they’re something, someone special, getting hooked into the wrong behaviors to convince themselves they are. On the surface perhaps they believe it to be true.

On the side for a moment, as I went through the agonizing decline of my husband and hearing about his disillusionments, his mistakes, failures, regrets, he faced a great deal of himself, of his inner demons, dove into self-reflection in that cancer-time, looked straight-on at on his behaviors and choices. He had huge regrets. He made decisions on what he’d do differently next go round, next life.  Don’t wait till that dying moment to change what truly madly deeply curls your toes, no matter your age. Do it! Do it now! Go for what you dream, desire. Don’t follow the crowd. Carve your own path. Make good directional choices. Step away from things that are not you, not true to your core. 💕

EF2EC702-FBEC-45BD-B165-357CC22DAAFE

If people can live happily knowing “everything – everyone” was happy with the story, bad choices and poor behaviors, all directions good bad and otherwise, everyone came out fine with the consequences and aftermath – then it’s great. No need for re-do’s or behavior changes. No upgrades. Maybe?

An example:

I recently rewatched Jack Nicholson in “As Good as It Gets.”  He took time for self reflection, something critical to evolution, and came to discover all the women, the huge number he’d slept with, were actually not as happy with him as he’d thought, didn’t think of him as the Greek God, the Casanova, he thought himself to be. It was incredibly revealing for him. So he changed course.

Again, no judgements. The key is having everyone onboard, good with behaviors, where everything is copesetic.

Ironically, like I said, I don’t care what people have done, (especially if they’re internally congruent with the intent and actions and heart motivation) unless they become part of my inner circle, then it changes, I change. My expectations change. I expect people to step up their game, be more if who they are. Be their best. I mean honestly, isn’t that why we are here? To live up to our highest potential? Okay, I’m driven. Probably because I see farther than most, sense more. My story, not yours, not putting that on you.

I apologize to my sons for the huge expectations I have put on them. 

The key with that is, we each have our own highest ideals and yours might not be mine. Or mine not be yours. I tend to push, be focused constantly on the bigger picture, the larger dynamic. I expect a LOT out of people. To learn, grow, expand. Be creative.  Be Conscious. Now that’s not fair of me to push my ideals, my moral compass on anyone so I don’t. I listen instead, guiding others to find their light source within, to follow their heart to their highest ideal, not mine. We are all different sparks in the firecracker.

Just know though, I will encourage, invite, entice, kick you in the arse, to be the best you came here to be, whatever that looks like.

Especially in my inner circles.

Cosmic sunshine to you.

“E”

A13EF105-F4D1-4DD3-8C61-C9D796977827

Evocative musings…

engage my thoughts of late

scent of enticing behavior

exploring earthy environs

music erotically stimulating

the taste exquisite 

exciting 

yet enigmatic…

the mind wanders

remembering an old love.

We shared enthralling escapades

in exotic places

We were euphoric 

ecstatic in love with love,

All of which were enchanting

a long time ago.

☀️☀️☀️

More from my “ABC’s of Being Human” project. This is an excerpt from the E category. I’d recommend going into the dictionary and writing a short quip or poem or story focusing on the letter of your choice as a mental and creative exercise to push those dendrites around. Ironically if you’re in a bad space choose N or O as there are a lot of derogatory human behavioral words waiting to amp the negativity, share the mad highway or sadness that’s in need of capturing. Personally I prefer the happier letters.

 

Cosmic sunshine to you. ☀️

“Moonstruck”

EBE376B6-697D-4D38-B28B-C1678C90046E

Moon beams magnify 

 night magic

mitigating my mortality.

I meditate on the metaphysical 

mysterious 

 light in darkness

feeling masterful and multiloquent

talking to nightjars and fireflies

my words meticulous.

My mood now mercurial

I’m mesmerized in magnificence

moonstruck before the dawn.

 

 

I’m reviving an old project called the ABC’s of Being Human. We have over a million words in the English language yet currently there are only around 150,000 words in play. I thought it’d be a fun challenge to pull out some old gems and create within each particular letter different encouragements, visuals and mantras, thus Moonstruck, loaded with ‘M’s.’

 

Cosmic sunshine to you.
