intro

Hello dear reader.  I’m not good at describing myself because I don’t believe there is a “me” that is separate from “you.”  Apart from our appearance of separation, we are one and the same at our cores.  Our genetics and individual memories are unique (for now) but we are both aware and in that we are both temporary expressions of the eternal mind. 

But that will be for a later post.  Let’s talk about me.  Since the beginning of time I have been on a quest to return to the state I was before time started.  This has resulted in a whole universe, filled with matter, stars, planets, gravity, electromagnetic forces, black holes, mountains, oceans, trees, organic molecules, and of course, life.  A dream in the mind of a dreamer who has forgotten that they’re dreaming.  But little by little, the creatures in the dream begin to realize they’re in a dream.  With this knowledge,  they are able to tap into the secrets of the universe.  Eventually, they free themselves from the dream for good, and return back to the initial and eternal state of existence.

I am one of those creatures.  I guess this is going to be one of those blogs about the truth or enlightenment or the ultimate Self.   I am a spiritual person and I am also a lover of science.  My goal in life is to gather knowledge, subjective and objective (ie. pertaining to our collective reality), so that I can reconcile the two.  Technology and awakening go hand in hand.  I have seen the end of the universe and I know what part I have to play.  Let’s hope I can play it well.

Things can be going along swimmingly and then this happens.  Out of the blue.  Maybe you’ve seen an open email where you learn that your mate is confiding to someone about perceived shortcomings and is questioning the entire relationship.  It’s a horrible feeling and one is left wondering either, “What did I do wrong?” or “What kind of person am I dealing with here?”  Most times, it’s the latter.

It’s certainly hard to trust someone like this again and, I would venture to guess, your rug isn’t the first one to have been yanked by her/him.  My advice:  They have revealed a viscous side to you that you need to pay attention to.  The moment of contrition that is expressed is temporary.  It will show up again.  Hold to your guns and move on.

The lazy part of me wants to just answer these questions and then not tag anyone or write any more questions but whatever. I’ll do it. Because Emily is lovely for tagging me in the first place. And obviously no one feel obligated to do this just because I tagged you. Also you are not allowed to judge me for any of this.

Tag, You’re It!

Rule 1: Post the Rules.

Rule 2: Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post then make 11 new ones.

Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to your post.

Rule 4: Let them know you’ve tagged them

5, 10 :)

5. Well, until I was about 3 I wanted to be a princess. I think I had a preschool teacher who told me I couldn’t do that so I had to pick something else and my mom got really pissed about that when I told her that story. Something about taking away some of innocence or something like that idk. But anyway, that was when I decided I wanted to be a teacher, I honestly have no idea why. Then, at some point I realized what I really actually enjoyed learning and talking about and I have no idea what to do with an English major and a concentration in film studies so that brings us about up to date with my career aspirations.

10. I think there was always a name I really liked but I don’t remember it now. I feel like I’d choose something weird. But not weird like oh-my-god-what-were-her-parents-thinking weird, more like that’s-a-really-cool-name weird. I always really liked the name Elizabeth when I was younger except I have a cousin named Elizabeth so that might be kind of weird. I think I liked it because of the Z. That was a way longer answer than you were expecting probably but there you have it.
