Love & Conciousness

So I just read a quote by my hermana, and I've come to a sort of philosophical "epiphany":



"I don't believe in commitment. That's like giving somebody the responsibility
of your happiness, like 'here, make sure that all my orgasms are great, that I
have somebody to hold on cold winter nights, & just assure me that if
anybody messes with me, you'll beat them up.' Other than that, I don't see the
point of marriage. But when I need my love, I get my love." -Michelle Rodriguez.


I don't believe a person is ever truly "in love", I think one just becomes conscious.


Learning to live outside of the reality or collective the Dream. When a person describes how they feel when they are "in love" is exactly a description of consciousness. To be open, to SEE things in a different light, having an inner calm and peace. No one is responsible for someone else's happiness. Happiness is just a term we equate with inner peace, a state of Nirvana. When things are in balance and we're able to perceive things and look past the 3 dimensions, we begin to realize the interconnectedness of ourselves (our Light) and the Universe. All "we" (people) are, is Light. Energy. When you become conscious, you can see this Energy, you can feel it with every fiber of your Being. The manifestation of this is the feeling that we term Love, Joy, Peace, Happiness, Calm, and Gratitude. To be open to the forces that naturally exist, that have formed our physical world, means that we understand that we are everything and nothing at the same time.

Commitment, just like everything else is fluid. Fidelity to one person, place or thing is fluid, not static. Even people who have lived in one place thier whole life eventually travel somewhere that is not home. They see a world that is different, and full and vibrant. This is not to say that cheating or infidelity is right, I am stating that to be static, in anything, stops Light from growing, evolving, and shining.

You can be co-conscious with another person and share a beautiful relationship, no matter what it is, but every relationship changes. Change is not a bad thing. Change is natural. Who you are today, right now in this moment, is not the person you were yesterday, not the person you will be tomorrow, and not the person 10 minutes ago, and that is perfect. The strength of the Light and Force within is all dependent on how conscious YOU are. Consciousness is the realization and a break from the incessant thought noise and ego in your mind that tries to define you.



Who are you?


You are not your body, your material possessions, your thoughts or your actions. You are Energy. Light. Love. Peace and Happiness. All of those things are fluid and in direct relation to the Universal Being (if you want to call it God, that's fine, just don't think of some guy up in Heaven because that is not God, that's a myth). You and I are everything and nothing all at the same time. Become conscious and live a peaceful life. We have the power and control of our own realities (our Dream of life), and the ability to become conscious, and our ability to do that is not reliant on another person, only ourselves. You get real love, true love, only from yourself. From your state of Awareness and Being. Conciouseness.

I thought this was 2009?!

I am fresh off my 1st official "CUS Tour" of Northern New Jersey, and I must say it was a pleasant experience. My days were filled with sisterhood, fun, jokes and love.
Needless to say I was brought back down to Earth when today I got blasted with the news of the infamous "Swine Flu". Seriously?! Now, in my experience, whenever the U.S. news/media make a HUGE deal out of something trivial, let's say...... the flu they're usually covering up something more serious. I mean c'mon! Mexico has been ravaged by human trafficking, the influx of a 2nd generation drug war, and a devastating earthquake and we're going to focus on.......the flu?! Why, you may ask? Because is affects us close minded, egotistical Americans.




Now, I remember this one time in history class, where I learned about this Influenza Epidemic of 1918 (which was also referred to as the Spanish Flu. Hm. Interesting). Killed hundreds of thousands in the U.S. and millions worldwide. Since then, we've had the advent of the flu vaccine and other medications that can help stop the virus in its tracks. So to get people's mind off of the Credit Card crisis, the collapse of the automotive industry, human trafficking nationwide, the depleting value of the dollar (not only caused by the "big crash" but also by buying scrap gold. This means that our "money" is no longer worth its weight in anything, its more or less a piece of paper), and natural disasters........ we focus on a COMPLETELY treatable virus that is affecting a developing nation, which doesn't have the resources to treat its people with the medicines we have here, ONLY because we frequently travel to this nation to rape the land, and its people of their natural resources, and support and fuel their drug trade. Way to go America! We've done it again! lol. Seriously!




Its necessary to be aware and pay attention, because if you don't YOU too can fall into the panic trap!

Back to my writings

A reason.
A season.
A lifetime.

I remember quiet musings and long trips
Just a glimpse
The sight of what I thought perfection must be
Just me, my music, and my thoughts
Thumbing through my text messages hoping at the same time you were doing the same
I saved up
I'm on the train this time
I really couldn't pinpoint what drew our chemistries together
Maybe it was because you reminded me of that time I was 5
And the first time I had tasted sugar cane cut straight from the Earth's underbelly
Raw and sweet
Thick and inviting
I loved it then
I loved you then
When I was 3 and realized the beauty of the daffodils in May
That was you
Open and warm
The time I was 14 and discovered the beauty of paint lines on canvas
Your body
Its curves
Its flawless hue of light brown sugar and how my hands looked like dirty clay as they caressed each and every nook
I think of the moments we didn't quite share but that added up to the moments that led us to each other
Each moment connecting to 1 million more
Till my million reached your million and our chemistry burned a million times more than that
I traveled miles for the slightest touch
The melting of my body's life center as you kissed me
Then it was over

You were my reason
That was our season
Your memory is my lifetime.

How Loans & Credit Work

Most people go into getting a loan without really knowing the details about how they work and what exactly they're doing to your credit. The basis of it is simple: Its money given given to you in a lump sum to make a purchase. You pay back the money over a set period of time at a rate of interest. To really understand the concept, you first have to realize and understand that ALL money is technically a loan. All the money that exists (especially in banks) is "owed" to someone else, so first get over the fact that the "money" is yours. Now, when you apply for a loan they look at your credit history and credit score. Your score is based on a point system that measures your amount of debt, what kind of debt you have, and your propensity to pay (or risk). All of these factors are configured to determine a 3 digit number ranging from 350-900 points (the range voluntarily changes and can change at ANY time). All banks and private lenders look at the history and score to determine how much of a risk you are. From there they set your interest rate and loan term. These vary depending on which institution you go to.
Things like student loans and minimal credit card debt to affect you, but not as much as your propensity to pay vs. how big of a loan you have. For example: paying perfectly on a credit card with a limit of $500 will only take your score but so far. But paying perfectly on a mortgage, or car loan worth thousands of dollars can create a good score. Why? Because of the risk. Credit is measured by how much revolving debt you have. Crazy right? You spend so much time trying to get out of debt, but in order to get out of it or have a good score, you have to have be in debt. Get rid of it and you'll have a hard time getting things like loans, credit cards, jobs, etc...

These companies can help to erase somethings from you credit and get you on the right path to rebuilding a solid credit foundation. Can they boost your score? Sometimes yes. Just because something is no longer on your credit can actually hurt you, why? You've eliminated some of the revolving debt. Approach them with caution, but overall they can be a good thing.




But the best way to help repair and build your credit is simple: Pay on time. Get credit card with a lower limit and lower interest rates. Only take out loans of you have to, and UNDERSTAND that whoever is lending you the money is taking just as much of a risk (sometimes a bigger risk) than you are. So if you're hit with a high interest rate, or a lower loan...ask yourself about your history.
