My name spells CAT and I play with string ... At risk to inspire at any time.

Since I’ve decided to take on this journey - I cannot think of one (that I personally know) protestor of the Bible who has read it Or one person who has read it, that doesn’t have a respect for it.

What if, #hemp is the #key to save the #world? What if, the mass majority of consumer goods were manufactured of compost-able and #Ecofriendly hemp versus plastics and other #hazardous materials that contribute to our #massive #global #waste #issues? What if #cars and #trucks were made AND fueled by hemp instead of #finite and #wasteful #resources like #steel, #oil and #plastics? What if, #paper, #clothing and #buildings could be produced better for the #people use them AND the global #habitat? 

That’s a lot to say about our #keychain…

Glory is to God when within,
In details the Devil begins.

Awakening the Giant inside,
That all the Fear has managed to hide.

Faith without the work is dead,
So many echoes inside my head.

What I seek will eat me alive,
But is sure to release the glory inside.

1 Corinthians 6:19 - 6:20

1 Corinthians Chapter 6

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

On this particular evening, I had hardly glorified God. I was timid, fearful and meek in the face of some obvious ungodly circumstances. I do however believe that the experience delivered me to a new level of commitment for my boldness and light.

"Out of the night that covers me, 
Black as the Pit from pole to pole, 
I thank whatever gods may be 
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance 
I have not winced nor cried aloud. 
Under the bludgeonings of chance 
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears 
Looms but the Horror of the shade, 
And yet the menace of the years 
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate, 
How charged with punishments the scroll, 
I am the master of my fate: 
I am the captain of my soul.”

~William Earnest Henley

Agitating Facebook Post: “There is something not right with this world”

This world is what WE make of it.

If we want change in our lives we have to change things in our lives.
If we want change in this world we have to change things in this world.

Change is rarely easy.

We have to distance ourselves from destructive things and the people who condone them.

Those people are often ones we have grown to love and depend on and at times may even be our family members. I remember my mother telling me once in a heated conversation that I could pick my friends but I couldn’t pick my family. I learned from there that you don’t always have to surround yourself with your family though. And to be careful of who to surround yourself with otherwise.  

We have to reach for relationships with productive people and especially mend old relationships, when ever at all possible.

This is ALL often uncomfortable.

And most importantly we have to be willing to change the way we think.

Because what we do,
is always a projection,
of the way we think.

Many people subconsciously avoid changing their lives (and the world) because it requires us to hold ourselves and the people around us accountable. Because most people need someone else to help hold themselves accountable until they are strong enough to do it for themselves. This can be awkward, and this can be endearing.

Holding ourselves accountable requires deep inner strength. Once someone is strong enough to hold themselves accountable it becomes their duty to help someone else. Otherwise the growth stops with them. And eventually the change defaults to a type of chaos (has your life ever felt like hell on earth?).

Change is like a chain reaction. It can happen quickly and spread around the globe as fast as a satellite signal.

For better or worse WE are the instruments of change.

A force of nature.

The winds of change begin,

within.

Moments of Meltdown

People often compliment me on how positive I am though I think there is value in knowing that I have experienced my moments of mental meltdowns…

You see, in the moments I think that I couldn’t possibly do everything I have assigned myself, my heart is broken and my soul will have me weeping - and so then I have to decide to think that I simply must be capable to do it all because I am happier for the hope of it.

Overcoming a Tragedy

I have gotten news of another tragedy today. Well, actually a few but in different mediums. Even when my own world might be something beautiful, the world of my friends and extended families can be something grim and disturbing. 

It’s made me think of an upsetting experience on a recent trip to Las Vegas. I had a deep and close encounter with a woman who had hardly a woman left inside her at all. As I stood in a group of other women in a place of sensory significance this particular woman walked directly up to me. As I felt her approach I turned and we nearly touched nose to nose. She was hunched over with bulging eyes and holding a paper cup of coffee. As we held eye contact she took a sip from her cup, took a step back and nearly spit it all over me as she laughed and turned away. It was like looking into someone who had died already. I could feel that she was in a very dark place and I was upset that I didn’t know how to help her. I noticed many more of her kind with a new perspective in that trip. It is a tragedy to me that in the streets of places with so much “wealth” and “luxury” there is a cold hard home to so many people that are empty and hopeless. I have had similar experiences in my trips to Hollywood and Seattle. What kind of world is this?

Those experiences make me think; I don’t feel like enough people really know what it means to live with love in their heart.
To be whole. To be well. To be love.

If only the world would - slow down … and center.

To ask or offer help when you think to. To be sure to keep clear with the person we see in the mirror. 

When I open my eyes and the world is overwhelming I take a deep breath, stretch, put on some beautiful music and make my first move. Most of the time it’s a dance. Sometimes I cry. And then I smile or laugh at myself - for shaking it out.

When things are darker than they have ever been before - find the minutes inside you that you could laugh about forever and be alive. And don’t hesitate to reach out to the ones you might be afraid to. Do not let pride separate you from the opportunity to ask for help.

Get out of the static and find peace in your mind. Do this often. Then carry on with accomplishing the “impossible” and keep smiling along the way.

I believe there is hope for whole consciousness. That the wounded may heal and grow stronger for their tribulations. That there be well being for everyone and fulfillment in our hearts. I know that starts within me and is chosen to be shared and received by others.

So as I am listening to a beautiful playlist that I have appropriately titled “Overcoming a Tragedy”, I believe it is time to endeavor a creative series that’s been on my mind. To share my imperfections and those I that I have witnessed and then the light that has helped guide me through them.

With Love,
CAT
