Grab a copy today and be the first in your circle to be the one to recommend the first of a great new series of stories by author C. M. Carter. The only downside will be the impatient wait for the next book in the series.
This poem which is credited to a Lauren Wilceuy seems to be popular with the
tantra crowd as I’ve seen it posted by more than a few tantrikas and women that are into the science of tantra/ tantric yoga.
I like the message, maybe you will find some inspiration in it too
IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD, LOVE A MAN
If you want to change the world love a man; really love him Choose the one whose soul calls to yours clearly who sees you; who is brave enough to be afraid
Accept his hand and guide him gently to your hearts blood Where he can feel your warmth upon him and rest there And burn his heavy load in your fires Look into his eyes, look deep within and see what lies dormant or awake or shy or expectant there Look into his eyes and see there his fathers and grandfathers and all the wars and madness their spirits fought in some distant land, some distant time Look upon their pains and struggles and torments and guilt; without judgment And let it all go Feel into his ancestral burden And know that what he seeks is safe refuge in you Let him melt in your steady gaze And know that you need not mirror that rage Because you have a womb, a sweet, deep gateway to wash and renew old wounds If you want to change the world love a man, really love him Sit before him, in the full majesty of your woman in the breath of your vulnerability In the play of your child innocence in the depths of your death Flowering invitation, softly yielding, allowing his power as a man To step forward towards you…and swim in the Earth’s womb, in silent knowing, together And when he retreats…because he will…flees in fear to his cave… Gather your grandmothers around you…envelope in their wisdoms Hear their gentle ‘shusshhhed’ whispers, calm your frightened girls’ heart Urging you to be still…and wait patiently for his return Sit and sing by his door, a song of remembrance, that he may be soothed, once more If you want to change the world, love a man, really love him Do not coax out his little boy With guiles and wiles and seduction and trickery Only to lure him…to a web of destruction To a place of chaos and hatred More terrible than any war fought by his brothers This is not feminine, this is revenge This is the poison of the twisted lines Of the abuse of the ages, the rape of our world And this gives no power to woman, it reduces her as she cuts off his balls And it kills us all And whether his mother held him or could not Show him the true mother now Hold him and guide him in your grace and your depth Smoldering in the center of the Earth’s core Do not punish him for his wounds that you think don’t meet your needs or criteria Cry for him sweet rivers Bleed it all back home If you want to change the world love a man, really love him Love him enough to be naked and free Love him enough to open your body and soul to the cycle of birth and of death And thank him for the opportunity As you dance together through the raging winds and silent woods Be brave enough to be fragile and let him drink in the soft, heady petals of your being Let him know he can hold you, stand up and protect you Fall back into his arms and trust him to catch you Even if you’ve been dropped a thousand times before Teach him how to surrender by surrendering yourself And merge into the sweet nothing, of this worlds’ heart If you want to change the world, love a man, really love him Encourage him, feed him, allow him, hear him, hold him, heal him And you, in turn, will be nourished and supported and protected By strong arms and clear thoughts and focused arrows Because he can, if you let him, be all that you dream If you want to love a man, love yourself, love your father, love your brother, your son, your ex-partner; from the first boy you kissed, to the last one you wept over Give thanks for the gifts; of your unraveling to this meeting Of the one who stands before you now And find in him the seed to all that’s new and solar A seed that you can feed to help direct the planting To grow a new world, together. ~Lauren Wilceuy
Laminine was recently showcased on American Health Journal in select markets around the USA This month of July 2012.
Also features Kevin Sorbo of Hercules and Andromeda TV show fame and how Laminine has helped him. I did not know before this that Kevin Sorbo had had a stroke back in the 1990s when he was still shooting Hercules in New Zealand.
Ok, so I am implying this is directed towards Baby Boomers, but honestly, I can’t think of anyone who WON’T benefit from this – including your kitty or doggie.
I believe this to be the next BIG thing that people will be taking on a daily basis.
Laminine “The Baby Boomer Supplement.” Laminine empowers the body to heal itself. Increases serotonin, the happy feel good hormone and decreases cortisol, the stress hormone by 50%. Improves energy, stamina and promotes restful sleep.
Nourishes stem cells too.
Laminine is nature’s most perfect food and the perfect combination of life-giving sustenance sourced from land, sea and plant.
Clinical tests have been conducted which showed laminine’s positive effects on Physical, Mental, Emotional Strengths and Overall Health. http://www.HappyPowerPill.com/
From a business opportunity perspective, this is a 4 fold win-win-win-win. 1. Timing. 2. Price of entry for a business. 3. Product that gives amazing results in as little as a few days. 4. Compensation plan.
For those who know when you find a no-brainer like this, you know that you can accomplish in months what would normally take years.
So the 2nd half of 2011 has begun. Time to start a new ritual?Trend? whatever you call it…. How about:
MID YEAR Resolutions and Reflections.
Take a moment this weekend to reflect upon the first half of the year and see what you’ve accomplished and whether you are on track with your goals. Maybe you have new goals – i know i do. Maybe you fulfilled some, maybe others are getting cold and moldy on the back burner – salvage them if you want, or throw them out and make room for NEW.
I have been cleaning out my physical environment to create more clarity and focus for myself. It feels good to purge yourself of old things that you no longer want or need. Nostalgia and the What-If creatures try to sneak into your psyche to get you to reconsider letting go of your STUFF. But then Rationalization and Practicality double-team them and counter with the ideas of “you can’t take it with you”,” it’s holding you back” and “it’s weighing you down.”
Where’s The BEEF?
Ok, I realize this is normally slotted for an Eff-En-Eff, so here’s 2 mini-videos of UFOs over LONDON that were aired recently. Quite intriguing. Now I’ll keep my opinions to myself as I’m not an expert on analyzing real vs. fake. The fact that these two I found are taken in totally different parts of the city makes it seem a bit more convincing.
However, an observation is in store here. Why is it that UFOs always seem to move like UFOs? The triangle formation, the radical changes in direction and speed. The odd way the larger disc rotates and spins slowly. And so on.
Finally – cause I got work 2 do, I’ll blog more about this later, but time is of the essence.
There are blenders and then there is IMO, THE World’s Best Blender, ever. The one and onlyBLENDTEC. Even better, it can be purchased with FREE SHIPPING all during the month of JULY, 2011.
So my question to you is, Will It Blend, Punk?
footnote - - -
– – – You Might Be A Zombie if …you don’t realize we’ve been living in a Zombie Apocalypse for several years now.
Yes, I am probably starting a new meme here, but it dawned on me that the way most people go through their lives, they sure have an awful lot of zombie tendencies and traits… remember, kill the brain and run away – the lactic acid build up in reanimated dead tissue causes them to stop ‘dead’ in their tracks fairly quickly.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, healthy lifestyle is part of my thing.
The Future Of Food (2004)
This documentary came out November 13, 2007 according to the info on Hulu – less than 4 years ago as of this posting. However, when checking out the history of the film on it’s OWN website, I found this:
The Future of Food has been a key tool in the American and international anti-GMO grassroots activist movements and played widely in the environmental and activist circuits since its release in 2004. The film is widely acknowledged for its role in educating voters and the subsequent success of passing Measure H in Mendocino County, California, one of the first local initiatives in the country to ban the planting of GMO crops. Indicative of its popularity, the Future of Food showed to a sold out audience of 1,500 at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco in 2004, a benefit for Slow Food, where it was introduced by Alice Waters. [source]
Like Food Inc. and The World According To Monsanto, it is an eye opener for many as to what’s being done to our food supply. Remember, knowledge is power and ignorance breeds complacency and allows for ease of control. Keep informed!
The Future Of Food offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade
Since i am often the DD – “designated driver” verses the luckier DD – “designated drunk”, I have to find a non-alcoholic beverage to consume while out at the clubs, bars, restaurants and parties.
YOU GET THE LUCKY LEPRACHAUN
GOLD RUNNING THRU YOUR VEINS!
So what’s better than tiger blood juice and a perfect drink for St Patrick’s Day?
why, Lucky Irish Gem Juice!
Careful how you say that. Don’t let drunk friends order it as if they’re slurring their speech it could sound like you’re asking for Jim Juice, aka Jim Jones Blue Kool-Aid suicide drink. Just remember Green Good. Blue Bad. Simple alliteration memory jogger there. GG good, BB bad.
This drink can pass as non-alcoholic and safe for the non-idiots to drink who are the chosen ones to take their village idiot and city idiot buddies home from their favorite Irish Pub this St Paddy’s day. An excellent choice for those who choose not to imbibe the green beer monster.
LUCKY IRISH GEM JUICE (inventor – Terry P Carter)
Bitters – i like the taste – it really amps up the ginger ale. Bitters does have alcohol but it’s like the equivalent of adding vanilla extract to a drink. A few drops aren’t going to do anything to your sobriety. Here’s a few BITTERS I like to use.
Chloroxygen – 4 to 10 drops will do the trick depending on how ‘healthy and energetic’ you want to make the drink.
to get your Lucky Leprechaun Magic Elixir, aka CHLOROXYGEN today.
THE LUCKY IRISH LEPRACHAUN GRASS is actually CHLOROXYGEN chloropyll supplement – great for natural energy boost and great for solving and avoiding altitude sickness / acclimating yourself to high altitude especially if you are like me and live most of the time near sea level.
Regarding the video – it’s my interpretation of a city idiot – urban version of the Village idiot.
It’s not polished, predictable, professional, etc. and it’s not supposed to be. He’s an IDIOT, duh.
It’s a bit off, stupid, and just a little out there…. although as with the special idiot savant variety, there’s always a little bit of wisdom in older idiots – they are most likely the smartest of the bunch as they are still alive.
. . . and yes, i AM Irish but pretty far removed from the homeland – ancestors bailed out of the Blarney ages ago.
Ok, so this was pretty cool, but my question is, is it sharp when it shatters?
Personally, I like the windows that black out / photosensitive for privacy/shade.
Don’t care for the bathroom mirror acting as anything other than a reflector of non-augmented reality.
The cell phone being semi-translucent on the backside made no sense other than “ooh, aren’t we cool? Look how sophisticated our tech is”… to me, I’m thinking, where’s the privacy on your call?Why would you want people able to see the reverse image of who you are calling on the backside?
The whole dashboard of glass on the car? How thick is that – meaning, how much heavier is it than current materials?
Bottom line, glass cleaners and micro fiber cloths will be VERY POPULAR.
