Trust no one. I keep channeling these words and a feeling – it’s telling me to tell you – DO NOT TRUST HER. I hope you read this blog entry because I cannot reach out to you directly. I do not know what this channeling is in reference too, so take it as you must.

Yes, you were correct my dear. He was a manipulative asshole. As soon as I could tell him in person to fuck off, I did.  You would have been proud. I’m just sorry it took me so long to make that realization on my own.

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”

I Felt It All The Way Across The World

Posted in art, beauty, family, friendship, health, judaism, life, love, new york, relationships, spirituality, yoga by the consummate on June 24, 2011

If you’re hurting, so am I.

I felt your pain all the way across the world. I cried so hard last night swinging in the garden while listening to that song over and over again.  Although I had dedicated it to you before, its true meaning didn’t hit me until now.  I wish I could hold you and do awe baby. Physically, I cannot, but I will do so on a metaphysical level. Sending you healing for your loss.

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.

C’est Cauchemar

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?

Ikon Allah

If G-d wills it…

Is it possible that I am becoming more religious in a sense? My recent trip to Israel left me more proud of my heritage + culture but also with a profound sense of faith. I spent much time in Jaffa where there is a beautiful blend of Jews + Muslims living harmoniously with one another. One day, I found myself sitting on the rocks above waves crashing on the beach with strangers at 4 in the morning. We looked up at the stars and thanked G-d for the beauty we were experiencing. At that moment the Iman began his calls for prayers at the mosque. To hear this sound before dawn was eerie and other worldly. I felt as if I was having an out of body experience. The sound wasn’t unfamiliar, I’ve heard it before but I’ve changed.  As the vocalist Abdullahi sings “Ikon Allah” – Will of G-d, I too sing this tune. If certain things in my life are meant to be, it is the will of G-d and I leave it up to the higher powers that be. I know what I want but if it it is the will of G-d, it will come to be.

War Is Over

War is over. If you want it to be.  War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be. War is over. If you want it to be.

Oh baby, don’t you know?

War is over. If you want it to be.

Fangs!

So many kitties here in Israel… Makes me think of my Meow-Meow + Borio. Hope they are well.

Posted in artists, beauty, Feminism, health, life, love, new york, oldies, relationships, sex, spirituality, subculture, WTF, yoga by the consummate on May 9, 2011

It’s a long journey. I go in and out of different moods. Mostly, I am trying to overcome the pain of losing you. I’ve spent too much time in sheer anguish that the anger, albeit it’s ugliness, is welcome. I, unlike you, have not dedicated myself to the eradication of your existence in my life. I love and cherish you. There are so many words I want to say to you. So many things I want to explain. Perhaps in time.

Oh Yeah

Foolish Reminders

Misguided Angel

Posted in art, artists, beauty, health, life, love, music, new york, oldies, relationships, spirituality by the consummate on May 6, 2011

Will you love me ’til I’m dead? Even with my past discrepancies?

Nobody’s perfect. We have periods in our lives (or perhaps for some, like the subject of this song, an entire lifetime) of misguiding. But when you fall in love, it doesn’t matter what kinds of discrepancies a person has, you love to love. I feel like often we think we can accept a person and their misgivings but in reality we can’t handle these so we berate them for what they cannot change.  In this case, there are two options: #1) to walk away #2) to accept + perhaps, if we feel wronged, forgive.

Lyrics

UPDATE: I had to replace the Linda Ronstadt version with Joni Mitchell + Johnny Cash (not complaining here) but I do prefer Ms. Ronstadt’s version for my means of expression. Perhaps it’s because it speaks to my heart + what it is feeling at the moment. I highly recommend you listen to that version here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXdaxiIXBcI.

Bleeding Heart

Posted in beauty, health, life, love, neighborhood, new york, plants, relationships, san francisco, spirituality, WTF by the consummate on April 5, 2011

The Bleeding Heart flower is very special to me. During one of the most difficult periods of my life I grew a special connection with her. I started taking the flower essence at the suggestion of  a spiritual advisor but soon discovered a family of Bleeding Hearts lived on the path of the 22nd Street stairs. Anytime I would run or walk up  and down the stairs I would be greeted by them. I don’t believe in coincidences but only the universe confirming your direction.

Bleeding heart is a well tested flower essence and has been shown to release painful emotional attachments and heartaches from ended relationships. This might be the result of a breakup, a death, someone moving away, or getting a new job, or a tragedy with a pet. All of these incidents separate the person from their heart’s desire. Bleeding Heart flower essence helps mend the heart almost immediately, as if the person that was involved in the heart ache genteelly released their hold on it.

More on Bleeding Heart flower essence here.

PS: I’m starting to take her again today.

Nothing Comes Easily


“Wherever you are, whatever you do, have discipline in your life. Discipline your mind, discipline your senses, discipline your body. When we want a big reward, we have to pay a big price. Nothing comes easily. Even for a few minutes of ego gratification for climbing to the top of a mountain, so much effort is needed. How many months of great difficulties will you have to undergo to attain such a goal? How many times will you slip, get up, start, slip, get up, start again? At last you stand there at the top, plant your flag, and say, “I conquered Everest.” You may have conquered Everest, but you can never rest there. In ten minutes you even have to come down. For that ten minutes’ joy you worked so hard, you followed so many disciplines. Then it’s over.

In the spiritual life, however, once you get to the top, you have reached Ever-rest. You do rest there, and you won’t have to come down. You can even pull others up as well. But there are no shortcuts. A great price must be laid to reach that great goal. What is that price? Leading a selfless life.

Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi”

– Swami Satchidananda
