political awakening

Any male nerd that chews out a female nerd for not knowing the exact details of Star Wars or Star Trek is a male nerd who is not getting laid anytime soon, we understand.

*Me* “All I said was I thought The Phantom Menace wasn’t so bad. I mean if you take out Jar Jar and clean up the script a tiny bit. Darth Maul was cool, wasn’t he?”

*Him* “You’re a fake geek girl!”

Oddly, I was open to sleeping with him. Just before he said that. 

Main Street in America should be the ones who get bailed out. Not Wall Street.

College students should be the ones who get bailed out. Not Wall Street.

Working class and middle class families should be the ones who get bailed out. Not Wall Street.

We as Americans should be the ones who get bailed out far more than Wall Street. But when will that happened?

To Those Feeling Drained

Many souls are feeling drained emotionally, physically, spiritually and energetically, due to the current social and political climate.
This energy transference happens via heart, mind, spirit and direct contact.
The great news is that you are feeling!
You are empathetic to the world of hurting souls around you. You are not closing yourself—or your gifts, off to the world in its time of need.
Times like these are why we do the work. A mass awakening is happening, as it must. A sacred fire has been started.
Chaos comes before order. Pain before birth. We are experiencing an energetic detox on a mass scale. Human parasites who mean us no good, are being revealed daily.
These times evoke a change in the course of history, every great period has had one; this is ours.
So, how do we feel, connect, share our gifts, light and works with the world in this current state without becoming drained in the process?
We vibrate higher daily. That simple.
There are endless modalities for vibrating higher. You may already have your favorite routine in practice; if so, keep up the great work. If not, may you be inspired and fired up to begin yours.
No mistake about it, this country is at war—with itself, an energetic war, a moral war, a vibrational war, and an ethical war.
In the human body, this is known as disease; at war with itself.
How to cure and overcome dis-ease? We cure and overcome dis-ease by creating a suitable environment for healing and renewal to take place. Through vibrating higher daily in our food choices, physical fitness, stress control, routines, thoughts and overall mindset and lifestyle—healing, restoration, and renewal organically take place.
To sum it up…..
do more of what makes your mind, heart, and body come alive, restore and come back to center…..and do less of what does not.
The world and your life work need you strengthened and vibrating higher now, more than ever. So feel, connect, show love, have compassion and be a light to the world.
Just be mindful to vibrate higher through self-care. Recharge, release, restore, renew, nourish, and find your heart, mind and soul’s balance.
Vibrating higher daily is your protection.

You guys remember Paralogue 3 from Awakening, right?

The one where you have to try to protect those unarmed villagers from the Risen?

It was a bit of a pain in the butt, but nothing wildly difficult and not terribly memorable either. Well, putting it into the context of today, this chapter is slightly prophetic, if not freakishly coincidental… 

Let’s start with the villagers you’re trying to protect. These guys are running for their lives from monsters who are trying to kill them, and the people holed up in the village have barred their gates and refused to let them in. They all break for the southwest corner of the map, and some of them might get killed along the way. At first, this seems like something your typical brain-dead NPC would do, but the village isn’t an option for them and they’re terrified…

Of course, the people in the safe village are all too happy to accept help from you, but…

Is it me, or does all of this sound familiar?

Eh, it’s food for thought…

I had a dream last night where I was in my bed sleeping but Oscar Isaac crept through my door and sat on the very far edge of my bed and said “let’s get into gender politics” and his face froze like this

and I sat  there for basically hours with him just sitting there like that in complete silence

The Spiritual Side of the Political Shift

The first thought that came to me was - I feel very neutral about the whole thing and for some reason I’m not triggered by this at all. If you look at every social network, news columns, article comments and everywhere in the collective people are suddenly plagued with RESISTANCE. 

Resistance = Resistant towards change and the truth. When we are resistant we’re fighting the current flow of our present reality. We’re instead resisting the present moment of the NOW. 


So as an energy reader this is fascinating to me because what I currently see is a WHOLE LOTTA PEOPLE Plagued with cognitive dissonance. These people are blantantly resisting to accept their present experience. 

Another thing I feel is because it is triggering so many people subconsciously, we are behaving reactively towards the situation - Essentially it’s bringing out unconscious fears and insecurities that we have over our reality. 

what’s interesting about this is a TON of people right now are having their illusions ripped out right in front of them. Now see this is really big here if you think about it. This means a MILLION people or more are being blantantly triggered by their illusions. They are starting to have their paradigm dismantled. 

And from what i’ve learned about resistance is if we feel this way - what is offending us is our missing link towards transformation. It’s a truth we need to see withn ourselves. 

What does this really mean? 

It’s hard to say but what i’m feeling is a whole lotta people right now are being triggered collectively and having their illusions come crashing down on them. This could drastically effect the collective consciousness. This kind of ripple is intriguing because it could definitely trigger vast amounts of awakenings. 

Strangely this occurrence is smack dab in the middle of the 11.11 startgate. THIS IS SO WEIRD. There are no coincidences. 

There is a huge paradigm shift in progress and those triggers from the election are really sending a catalysm energy into the air. This is both good and bad because it’s really hard to say what that could mean collectively. 

BUT this new information coming through - it has to mean deep down something good is in the works. Something is building and growing in the undercurrents of society. For that much resistance we are building tension and MASSIVE energy expansion. This is peculiar because it’s directly showing me we are changing and evolving as a society. 

We no longer are sitting by being blinded by the illusions -we’re starting to collectively see the truth. And to see the truth makes us question. It makes us question our security, our safety and most of all our reality. 

In short, my awareness sees this as a positive. 

PARADIGMS ARE BREAKING 

we have to take the bad with the good but for some reason intuitively I feel safe, I feel all is meant to happen and maybe this change is the ripping of illusions that people need to have their paradigm busted.

I’m personally feeling kinda neutral about the whole thing - I think the dramatization is really moreso based on the fact that we have anxiety for our future. YET this future is something that hasn’t happened yet…we don’t know what is going to happen. But feeding the fear and hating eachother isn’t exactly helping either.

 All is meant to happen for a reason we are either stirring in blantant resistance, resisting the change or we can move forward with our lives. It’s up to you - it’s your choice. The universe has our back <3

Step out of fear loves,
until next time, Ash

BOOK OF THE DAY:

As Consciousness Is Harnessed to Flesh by Susan Sontag

This, the second of three volumes of Susan Sontag’s journals and notebooks, begins where the first volume left off, in the middle of the 1960s. It traces and documents Sontag’s evolution from fledgling participant in the artistic and intellectual world of New York City to world-renowned critic and dominant force in the world of ideas with the publication of the groundbreaking Against Interpretation in 1966.

As Consciousness is Harnessed to Flesh follows Sontag through the turbulent years of the 1960s—from her trip to Hanoi at the peak of the Vietnam War to her time making films in Sweden—up to 1981 and the beginning of the Reagan era. This is an invaluable record of the inner workings of one of the most inquisitive and analytical thinkers of the twentieth century at the height of her power. It is also a remarkable document of one individual’s political and moral awakening.

We are here to see if Peter cares about music.  This isn’t particularly scientific, tbh.  This is a HOUSE.  With tons of stuff to do and other sims who want to talk to Peter.  Plus other factors…. the radio is not the only thing of note here for an enterprising sim.

In any case they can keep the radio.  xD

Unfortunately this is a souped up radio.

The other two Langerak sisters went to bed.

… or you know… tried to.

…. mmhmm.

  • WASHINGTON: No, he’s stepping down so he can run for President
  • HAMILTON: Ha. Good luck defeating you, sir
  • WASHINGTON: I’m stepping down. I’m not running for President
  • HAMILTON: *takes a microphone out of his coat* There's a moment you know, you're fucked...
Who could challenge the contention that the world is an asylum when you observe the place for even a few minutes? – We have bankers lending us money that doesn’t exist (‘credit’) and charging interest on it – We have doctors supposedly healing the sick when the biggest killer in the United States is the treatment – We respond to cancer by killing the patient with chemotherapy and radiation which destroys the immune system and opens the door to even more cancer and much else – We have vaccines allegedly boosting the immune system when they are actually destroying it – We have scientists telling us how everything works, when they have not a clue about the true nature of reality and thus not a clue about how everything works – We have teachers telling children and young people whatever an insane and ignorant system dictates, no matter how flawed and mendacious it may be – We have men in frocks telling their congregations that all they need to know is between the covers of a single book, the Bible, Koran, Talmud, whatever; even crazier than that, we have billions believing them – We have political parties competing for office when behind the scenes all are controlled by the same force, which is why the same agenda unfolds no matter who is officially in government – We eat and drink chemical poisons in food and water and most people appear to think that this is perfectly okay – We have genetically-modified food that is genetically modifying us and yet most people never even consider the possibility or the implications – We have a media with no idea what is going on in the world telling us what is going on in the world – We have our freedoms constantly deleted to protect our freedoms – And we have civilians pepper-bombed from the sky to protect them from violence.
—  David Icke - The Perception Deception

On any given day, I can barely remember what I did an hour ago, but hey, I do remember things from those long-ago days when

- I played with my (inexplicably red-haired) She-Ra figurine! (The books had a proper golden-haired She-Ra, however, and the most quality Adora/Glimmer and Adora/Catra material.)

- The Little Mermaid came out and it was the greatest thing to ever happen in all my … uh. three years of life

- ROD STEWART HERE, ROD STEWART THERE, ROD STEWART EVERYWHEREEEEE

- we had a terrible Republican president who, nevertheless, inspired sullen dislike rather than existential dread
