I spent some time in meditation the other day, worried about work, being lolita, my relationship with my beloved, and a hundred other things. I received the following advice, with the instruction to share it widely--because it is not just for me, but for anyone and everyone who feels moved and inspired by it. Here goes:

Hold back nothing from your beloved. You are embarking upon the adventure of a lifetime. Let him drive; don't worry what you want. Share those things with him and with Me, but do not become impatient for them, any of them. Not the wedding, the marriage, or any of it.

Be like a lotus in a valley pool, content with where you are, where you are going, and the value you add to your surroundings.

I know you need certain things, but be unconcerned for the future. Strive to live cleanly, kindly, and lovingly right now. Strive to be content with all that you do have.

Take stock of what you have. Use it (do not lose it), for the betterment of society and humanity. Everywhere kids need your inspiration, but how can they be inspired if you have let the bloom fall off the rose? How can the young be inspired if they look at adulthood and see nothing they want?

Be yourself, because nobody else is going to be you. Nobody else has what it takes to be you--plus, they are all too busy engaged in the equally important job of being themselves.

Wallpaper your world with your own visions of beauty--who knows where this will lead?

You cannot leave your spirit dead and buried any longer. Begin to come out of the closet at any cost. Only by seeing you come alive can anyone else be inspired to come alive themselves. The time for toil and swallowing of sorrows is long past. Your task is to eat joy--to eat it so deeply that seven generations of your ancestors are nourished by it. They are here, watching their precious child, grandchild, great-grandchild and so on, grow up.

Your coming into your own power will be a cause for celebration the world wide.

good Lord

Just stayed up until past 2:30 am reading old CTY journal entries, and remembering all the good times I had on FFXI. Damn. I lived a whole entire *life* on that game. I laughed, cried, loved and lost, had a million adventures and a million friends, wrote a lot of awful songs, died a lot, and said a LOT of immature things. In all, good times. And I'm so thankful to Nimbex and my former shellmates for keeping all my entries alive even after I left the game. <3

Into Creation

Mystery of Mu-Ah,
My Non-Self, God-Self--
in the empty field, infinite empty field
of everlasting possibilities,
of countless images.

Amazed that this power of creation exists inside myself--
amazed in infinite gratitude,
amazed in brilliant bliss,
In the fierce bliss of the Emptiness,
I stand amazed.

Amazed again in gratitude,
both now and ever more,
for You gave me the Earth,
and the power to make it Heaven.

Today I went to the grocery store to buy eggs, bread, and some other stuff.

This was my receipt:
