The Heart Will Win

“The heart should play an important role, not only in married life, but in all of our relationships: with friends, relatives, business associates, and even strangers. Even if the other person uses the head, you should use more heart. Remember, ultimately the heart will win; it might take time but it will win. If you really want to use your heart, you will be guided in that direction. God’s guidance will be there. Pray more and trust in that higher force.

Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi”

– Swami Satchidananda

Intern Duties

My intern, in her tiger costume, dutifully walked my dog, in his devil costume, on Halloween. I was too busy at work being a dead revolutionary to walk him but not busy enough to take the picture and discover this was my intern’s first dog walking experience, ever. Glad I could contribute to a first.

Lady Don’t Tek No – Latryx

After months of putting it off, I finally went to the gynecologist today. I must say that I’ve certainly had plenty of strange experiences in my life – but not particularly when it comes to the gyno. Sure, I’ve been a starving creative in New York and spent some time at the Margaret Sanger Center at Planned Parenthood on Bleecker Street. There you found women like me, too poor to attain health insurance but not poor enough to be considered poor. Does this strike you to be familiar Americans?

Nevertheless, I hold dual citizenship in the US & in Hungary. Clever me, believed I could obtain free medical care while in Hungary, one of the reasons I scheduled an appointment to see the doctor here. In Eastern Europe. Yes. I am crazy. (more…)

Mystical Mantra Energy

Apparently here in Europe there’s a Jesus holiday going on today. Something about the Holy Spirit. Obviously, I am not well versed but respectful. Posting this, my favorite version of Hare Krishna, in respect to the holiness of the day. But isn’t everyday holy?

A mantra is mystical energy encased in a sound structure and each mantra contains within its vibrations a certain power. But of all mantras, the maha-mantra (the Hare Krishna mantra) has been prescribed as the easiest and surest way for attaining God Realization in this present age.” 

George Harrison (1943-2001),
in his autobiography :’I, me and Mine’

Camus Quote

Posted in art, artists, beauty, Feminism, friendship, health, humor, life, love, music, new york, oldies, relationships, Uncategorized, vacation, WTF, yoga by the consummate on May 27, 2011

Camus and his existential thought patterns. His simplistic language has always captured me. I first read L’Étranger when I was about 14 years old, Robert Smith was my dream lover and The Cure’s KILLING AN ARAB inspired me to pick up the book. As an impressionable teen I felt akin to the narrator, Meursault’s, dilemma – not being able to fit in to the contradictory and oppressive rules of society. The outsider looking in – that is me. Things could be ever so simple if I agreed to follow the rules but alas, my wild heart cannot be tamed. The personal musings of my blog reflect my emotional and mental state at moments, but what I’d like to remind you readers is that however I am feeling, know, that I am stronger than I lead on to be and that I have begun to love myself more than my tendency to punish myself.

I have dreams with a recurring theme – they are all about me + you. I wish they would stop and we could talk. So get out of my dreams and into my car. Oh wait, I don’t have a car but you understand what I mean right?

I’m heading to Hungary today. This will be my first time in the land since 2001! And guess what? THERE IS TOFU in this land now. NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM.

Bossy

Posted in art, artists, beauty, Feminism, health, humor, life, love, relationships, subculture, yoga by the consummate on May 14, 2011

Yes, I know I am bossy. I’m working on being less aggressive with my “bossyness” but it’s hard being a woman with a brain who knows what she wants, the way she wants it and when she wants it. When you’re a feminist like me who grew up in a patriarchal culture, the sticks of California, where Jesus reigns & women are expected to submit to the will of men (especially the stupid ones) you feel so much resistance within. Have you ever seen those episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County? Those women can’t even fucking take out a tampon without their husbands on top of them. This is a common practice in 2011? Can a lady get some time to take a shit, alone?

The lifetime of hearing my Eastern European mother sternly tell me “never let a man control you” doesn’t really add to my bossy situation. Add the nearly 10 years of living in New York City & working in my FORMER profession (selling salt to snails) doesn’t help. My “bossyness” is a knee jerk reaction and kind of like an over compensation for what I’ve experienced and still experience. So listen people, I’m trying hard here. Believe me.  It’s been over 30 years of living and things don’t change over night. So tranquilo.

Speaking of bossy, I’m currently reading BOSSYPANTS by Tina Fey. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!

PS: Am I being bossy?
