"Haram Iran" is set in modern Tehran, and depicts the plight of two Iranian youths charged with the "crime" of homosexuality, and slated for execution by hanging.
The play was performed in the Chicago and Los Angeles theater districts, and has garnered global praise. Its social message has been lauded by Gay Asylum UK's Omar Kuddus. A London production is pending for next year.

People Are Really Children (Revised 22nd September 2010)
Yes, it is back to the basics of all beginnings...
It is there that we can all remind ourselves that we all were born babies as innocent as they all are and without all this heavy and dirty baggage which the world has presented us with along our way from childhood to adulthood.
From the world's worst villains present, past and future...
From nasty, brute, cold, selfish, self-serving, hypocritical, false, cheating, inhuman, ignorance-promoting, hatred-for-all-differences-promoting, controlling, unfair, biased, prejudiced, anti-goodness, anti Mother Nature, anti Equality-for-all, anti Real/Uncompromised Academia, anti Real/Uncompromised Arts and Sciences, anti Equal-Rights-For-All, anti-Factual, anti-Freedom, anti-GLBTIQ, anti-Women, harmful and bad Businesses, Religions and Governments to common criminals...
No difference - we all were born babies - Children!
Where did all the poison, the dumb behaviour, the primitive/dark-age mentality and all the harm creep in and changed people into freaking cold-hearted monsters without scruples, without compassion, without any love, caring, consideration and respect for the well-being of/for our fellow human beings???
Will we ever learn to love one another without having to compete with one another?
Will we ever teach one another that all of our so-called "Competition", all of our languages, all of our words, of our definitions, of our codes of values, of our codes of conduct, of our Traditions...
All of our Mythologies/Religions/Beliefs, our Laws/Rules, of our Academia, of our Systems/Ways, of our Governments...
No exceptions at all - They all were invented/created by us human beings and even our concept of Gods/Goddesses and a Supreme Being or many - we've made it all up ourselves.
Why? In order to satisfy our need to be, to feel relevant!
And it could all and everything be fine and dandy if only we could learn to lose the fear of losing...
If only we could lose our extremely pathetic/stupid and unenlightened Competition...
If only, we could lose our fear of/from the New and Unknown...
If only we could lose our embarrassingly meaningless "Need" to be in control to extents which are absurd and harmful to our own selves and to others...
If only we could respect one another's basic human dignity to be free and respected regardless of all differences because we all are human beings and whether we like it or not, we are in this together for the short/temporary journeys in the flesh here on Mother Earth.
Absolute control is an illusion of short shelf-life.
Superiority is a temporary illusion and the lies of bullies.
Hatred of/for our own mutual differences is primitive, ignorant and harmful to all people.
Some write it is too late, there is too much to hate, so much hatred, too many bad people, too much harm, too much damage.
Evolution is never ever easy when we hold back from that what we are made out of - Changes!
People - I see them all as children.
We all are works-in-progress from the highest to the lowest human being alive or dead.
Many lifetimes come and go and none of us can avoid our own Evolution.
Next time that you feel bad and hatred - Do remember that we all were born babies - Children - human beings and the rest...
Well, the "Rest" is really Rubbish that we've made up along the way and so well indeed that instead of serving us, we find ourselves serving the rubbish that we've invented.
It is the falling in love of the inventor with his/her invention all over...
The more I think the more I realise how the world is forgetting to actually live, chiefly when it finds itself lost in the mad and stupid competing race - to be/to feel and to remain "Relevant".
There is no answer except Evolution.
It surely fits us all, no exception!
I still love the World chiefly when I see it as a Child.

For myself, I do extol the virtues of Monogamy as I see as a romantic, practical and egalitarian way of partaking of the healthy exchange of the giving and taking of all forms of relationships.
Due to mainstream global/cultural conditioning Monogamy does conjure up stronger and better the magickal feeling of becoming/belonging and being "Family" between two people who love each other.
Polyamorous Tribalism can be beautiful in its own ways and it has a lot to offer for people who au natural are well-disposed to share everything in a group format which can promote fidelity, loyalty and exclusivity amongst its members and actually work out very well for all concerned...
It is not bad at all however it has never been appealing to me nor it has ever been a choice for me because I au natural have always been keen on the beautiful bonds of mutually, freely and willingly offerred fidelity, loyalty, exclusivity between two people who really and truly love each other.
In our times...
People have been mad-go-looking for happiness in their exchanges with the world all around them however missing the very point that what makes everything worthwhile is Meaning.
And meaning is not easy because it is more than good sex, it is more than love, it is more than friendship and it is more than money and wealth.
Meaning is what makes each person real and true to themselves individually first! Meaning differs from person to person much like Value dances its changes in the many layers of knowing and not knowing which we all hold dear to us.
So in the end of the day...
You have to ask yourself "Whom am I and what do I value?"
But more so "What does it work for me and makes me content from inside out?" To each their own choices!
Is Monogamy, the "Monogamous way" per se going away?
For as long as there are Romantic people in this world who value the mutual gift of loyalty, exclusivity between each other as real lovers and friends...
Monogamy will be around... And by the way, doing just fine!

Short Collection of
By Sky a.k.a. JD Aeon (c) 1983-2010 US UK Fr Br
Selection of 25th June 2010 for PinkNews.Co.Uk
HARMONY, BALANCE, EQUILIBRIUM IN THE PLURALITY OF ALL DIFFERENCES
Harmony, Balance, Equilibrium In The Plurality Of All Differences.
What is your sense of balance about anything in you and in your life?
Well whatever it may be, it is very yours and in fact perhaps rather similar to other people who may share your differences however each person whether (of Trans, Female or Male genders), whether (Gay, Lesbian, Bi/Queer and/or Hetero) owns their own original sense of balance about anything and such it is shaped by that person's socio politico/religio conditioning of their own culture and/or cultures.
For instance, Hetero people regardless of their genders will most likely feel discomfort in the sense of "Balance" of Gay, Lesbian and Bi/Queer people.
At the other hand, Gay/Lesbian/Bi people will feel the same in the sense of Balance of Hetero people.
It comes down to the fact that we all have our very own sense of "Balance" within our own idea of what it should or should not be for our own selves individually.
One person's sense of comfort and peace could turn out to be another person's sense of discomfort and disturbance.
Another example, a polyamorous person's sense of Harmony, Balance may be quite different of a person who is monogamous.
Whether it is about wealth, good health, safety/security, longevity and relationships...
The ideality of Balance depends upon the hearts which bear it.
One final example is systems of beliefs... Some will favour the Patristic approach and others will favour the Matristic approach... Some will overdo the Goddess bit and others will overdo the God bit... Some will live and let live and others will waste their precious lives criticizing and complaining about what they perceive to be the Imbalance in other people.
Such a foolish exercise to attempt to impose as a determinant upon other people our own individual or group's sense of what it feels like normal, natural and "In balance" for us, for our group.
That what feels peaceful, "Normal" and in balance to one person may well feel exactly the opposite to another person...

The Truth has been written before, to always wear many, many faces in many times ergo each moment owns its own value and meaning within the boundaries of all evolution, of all changes and all awareness thereof contained within that moment.
I love the simple however very effective words of the late George Carlin - "The Earth, the planet is fine...But the people, the people are f*ck*d-up!"
Rough, hard to take but true indeed!
Here we have us humankind dancing to natural music of Evolution within the many ever-changing stages of Flesh upon this sweet and tiny ball called Earth spinning through space...
We utilise timezones locational languages to attempt to communicate with each other however we always get lost in the spoils of our own invented words - labels and their finite definitions.
Everything that we learn and know as far as all the words (labels/definitions),
we have invented it all.
From our academias to our religions and their imperfect traditions and mythologies...
Folks, it is all made-up. We did it.
Now I for my Self, I do firmly choose to believe that there is a Supreme Being, a Creatress of all that exists...
- I always did and I always will.
I prefer the Ancient Goddesses and Gods as my via of expression, as my direction in my own rites and rituals to celebrate Life, Changes and the
pleasure of "Being", of being a part of all existence.
I adore the Goddess!
Don't get me wrong this is not about validating or not validating this or that at all...
This is not about any "Better than" nor any "Superior to"...
This is really and truly about learning to become, learning to be aware of that all of the systems of beliefs, all religions, all traditions, all academias were all made by human beings like you and I.
None better than, nor superior to you and I.
What we think and choose to believe does count for our own selves individually and whatever our choices may be, they are valid, dignified and beatiful as long as we are not harming our own selves individually nor anybody else.
All perceived realities are temporary.
All perceptions have their length of expression and meaning within the boundaries of their own time.
All labels are as finite as their definitions.
It is all about our critical, well-informed and factual "Awareness", we must remind our selves that everything begins with the Self for each and everyone of us all ergo Individuation is the only initiation who allows us to grow enough to actually see our own selves as we are, with all labels and all foibles and it is o.k.
It is all a part of evolution.
Materialism or Spiritualism, whether we favour the flesh or the soul, we are here to experience our own evolution and to contribute to/in the evolution of all.
After many Cultures, after many Academias, after many Civilisations - Blimey! Anybody can figure out it is all about "Changes".
I think that it is why I myself push for "Meaning/Value" in what I try to live, feel and share.
I had realised a long time ago that all determinants do bow down to Changes... Given the proper amount of time to spend, all and everything bows down to change.
The fun of being is to change. Nothing is for keeps but the changes that we and everything are made out of.
I do not mean my share words herein as determinants to anybody! To each their own choices and all rewards thereof.
Love & Light,
Sky a.k.a. JD Aeon - Pagan Wiccan GLBT Witch Shaman Occultist
Boundaries - The expression of being/existing within structures.
What a beautiful and peaceful thought caught in the wishful art of any beautiful Trans-bride picture and/or film!
It speaks in different waves of meaning to each heart that allows itself to see it without the wilful limitations of socio-religio and political conditioning.
We all live in the flesh, each lifetime an exciting surprise as we are temporarily blinded by the structures which we undertake to experience Life on Earth, the so called here and now where the future could've been yesterday and the past really was tomorrow.
Time... It is all weighed in the depth of perception from the wings of our awareness... If we soar it seems to fly by so quickly and it feels so light...
And if we hold on to the temporary ground under our feet, then it seems so slow and heavy.
Feeling like a Woman is so beautiful. It is so delicious and I simply adore it very dearly.
But it is not all that simple and easy... Don't I wish it were!
We first must learn to negotiate the "Boundaries".
The boundaries of our own bodies...
The boundaries of our own beliefs, values and integrity...
The boundaries of our words, our communications...
The boundaries of our freely and willing sharing of our own selves individually.
The boundaries of our choices, of our best wishes, of our truest will.
It is not easy to be oneself, to live oneself and to fully, freely express oneself in a world conditioned by mainstream religions and the powers that be, to hate and destroy anybody and anything which are different and outside the wilful darkness of the ignorance imposed upon the masses.
The boundaries of our expressions want/need to go in sync/in harmonious balance with our natural ways, means and personal circumstances.
We cannot do it all alone, nobody can. We must do it in harmony.
Such it is not so easy as the meaning of the word "Waiting" creeps in along with patience and delays.
However it may be, I may dislike delays and I do also despise having to wait but the fact it is that "Waiting" is a part of all structures, it is a part of all boundaries, it is a natural occurrence for all that must spend, all that must pass, all that must "Change"...
And all Life is made out of "Changes" ergo I have to accept the unavoidable part of the negotiating of all structures, of all sharing, of all exchanges.
Energy waits to feel its own dissipation, its own climax each and every time that it changes forms in order to embrace and experience different and new forms of Life.
As a 100% Member of the GLBTQ family - I myself do love my changes and I do equally treasure this delicious and beautiful gift and blessing!
Gay is beautiful.
Trans is beautiful!
"Trans" is a gift.
GLBTIQ are gifts.
All "Differences" are gifts because They come from Nature, we all are not better nor superior than anybody else however we are different.
"Given the proper surroundings, the proper interactions, the proper motivation, the proper support along with the proper information/socio-religio-politico conditioning - Anybody (who is born and is fully healthy and sane) can be anything anywhere on earth."
"Better and superior" are basically "illusions/farces" and reflections of primitive and ignorant stages of beings and thinking.
The pain I can let go and replace it with hope.
The waiting I can turn it into study and do my best to experience it as the Wisdom of personally well-lived knowledge.
Our task is to reinvent our states of mind in wiser and more positive way, our feelings and our hopes into a more delicious experience and for as long as we live, we cannot ever forget that there is always a chance that we may make our best and truest wishes and dreams to come true.

Yes, we are all here and at once we are not...
Happily meeting always invites the wishful, Neptunian wonders of delightful possibilities and of course all of their related beautiful fantasies... However Wisdom tells us all that only the passing of time may or may not bring the powerful Saturnian structures of reality to tangibly prove what it is and what it is not.
The Fire of belief feeds the heart and the soul however the rewards of wise action feed the flesh.
We all know those people with too much free time in their lives...
The type of folks who go around like a tabloid petty journalist snooping, digging, buzzing like insects seeking dirt on the people that they target...
Obviously nobody is perfect but the majority of us all are good and dignified human beings ergo I let our foibles pass.
Regrets I sincerely have none at all because I've always followed my heart and when and where I was wrong, I did forgive myself first and learned the lesson thereof.
No, I have not got any regrets at all and I am thankful about that.
In this foolish game, dumb nitwits, unenlightened people will throw at you their absurd assumptions about you, your life, your choices and what you did or did not do and in turn they expect and hope very hard that you are stupid enough to get all caught up in their made-up/assumed rubbish and that you will readily begin to justify yourself to them and explain away you, your choices and whatever you did or did not do.
What a joke!
Again we all grow beyond this type of absurdity and mediocrity.
It is a waste of time to justify yourself to people stupid enough to waste their lives picking on you in their stupid fault-finding games.
Many of us feel like informing them that - "Hey nobody cares about what you think!!!"
"Nobody owes you any justification at all. And remember, nobody cares about whether you approve or disapprove this or that!"
What a bunch of arrogant tiny pea-brained people whose place is in a loony bin.
Get a life and be happy! Live and let live!
I will never ever change my ways, my choices and whom I am for anybody!
"Mutual respect is sacred."
Love and Light,
Sky a.k.a. JD Aeon - A GLBT Pagan Wiccan...
For those of you who love the virtues of the online world...
Not all are roses and perfume...
Don't you just love when a bunch of curious or simply cheap and worthless trouble-makers, the sort which have no life, no meaning of their own at all except when they shine through somebody else's stuff either by ignorantly criticizing it or by spying and gossiping against the good people who mind their own lives and business and do not bother anybody...
Yep, these are "human beings" and sometimes this is the very best we can do, folks!
So there you have it!
No surprises, no scratches at all...
I sort of count on free, uninvited and unwelcome rubbish...
Then I junk it as rule!
Nothing to it just another day!
"MERRY HOLIDAYS TO ALL" !!!
Some statistics from a "normal" northern town are scary.
Even the title of the article shows the deep set ingrained hompophoia that is RIFE.. in many parts of Lancashre. Not ALL the attacks were on "gays" .. some were carried out against trans people. I know because I was attacked by 2 people who after I came out of hospital I reported giving their full names and addresses to the police. They were never arrested, they were never even spoken to.. in fact nothing at all came from my report.
What a surprise.. "comments removed" after 7 and 6 being reported for being full of hate speak.. ok.. easy.. another "gay" topic from the same paper.
The town has a culture of "queerbashing" .. after being spat on and kicked to the ground in the town last week a policeman came over and kindly asked me to "get up off the floor you queer b------ or I will arrest you for being drunk" In broad daylight while I was on my way to work. The yobs who assaulted me stood by jeering and using foul language. What are we supposed to do faced with a culture where even the police will use hateful and abusive language towards us?
So my advice to anybody fancying a day out to "pieland" .. don't bother.. in fact give the place a very wide berth. I'm only here because I can't afford to leave. The comments after the news report show the mentality and the incitement to violence which is allowed and encouraged by the local press be you gay, trans,black,east european or whatever... you are "fair game for a kicking" in Wigan.. so say the police and paper.

Reality Follows Not Any Rules
I Think You're Crazy
Thoughts in Miscellaneous Extracts
In the living years
A Bag of Bones
All of the Writings by JD Aeon a.k.a. Sky (c) 1982-2010 US UK France Brazil
REALITY FOLLOWS NOT ANY RULES
How many times have we asked ourselves whether we are or we are not realistic about something that matters to us?
The problem with "Realistic" is the proverbial fog of societal conditioning which surrounds it.
People are conditioned from very early age by their society, cultures to be realistic in life. Such seems actually benign and dignified.
However under a closer examination we will find out that it is not what we thought it was at all.
Think! Reality makes success of/ to people and things that do not merit any success.
How many times have you seen people in position of power, leadership and importance that you know very well by rules of reality that they've never earned the credits for such nor have any of the merited virtues bestowed upon them.
Examples are easy and abundant... The leaders who should've never been allowed to be leaders, the teachers who should've never been allowed to be teachers...
The winners who are not really winners because all they have is "pose" besides their non-merited/non-earned winning.
Winners that should have never been allowed to be winners and so forth.
How many of you have worked for arrogant, ignorant and pathetic "dictators"???
People who think that they run the proverbial show when in reality the show always runs them because all that they have besides money is pose and all they know how to do well is to run their foul mouth... Insulting people and ruining lives...
When something goes wrong these comedic, idiotic bastards do not take any blame at all for their part in whatever it may be and instead they blame anybody that they can find under their feet. People either laugh at them or feel a bit sorry for them behind their back...
There is no accountability hiding behind money. Money does not buy the virtues of Wisdom, kindness and Mutual Respect for anybody's heart and soul. Each and every person are what they are by nature... Some people along the way while growing up lose their respect and love for themselves and later on for the rest of the world. It is quite sad and lamentable!
They think that they know... But in fact they really do not know what they are doing.
Talking is cheap. Living what we feel and are calls for bravery and for the natural support from/of Circumstances and also for the Universe's protection against the helplessness of poverty dictated by circumstances.
From the perspective of a nice society that tells you that if you work hard and long maybe you will be successful and attain your goals later in life... But in our way to that we all begin to see and to find too many people who simply break all the rules and become winners without any merits, efforts nor gifts... People who do not fit for the great and wonderful positions that reality has placed them in... Bosses and chiefs who should've never been allowed to be bosses and chiefs!
Where is "Realistic"?
Suddenly "Realistic" loses its power of meaning.
Suddenly wishing for dreams to come true does not sound so far-fetched because dreams may come true as they do all around the world everyday for some people when their time does come for such a blessing.
Anything can happen, anything is possible and reality obeys not any rules!
I suspect that regardless of whether a person is cut for success or not, if such a person happens to be care-free enough to be open to all possibilities and because of that such a person happens to be doing exactly what she/he should be doing in life and happens to be exactly where she/he should be all the time... Then success does happen not because of world and societal rules but because of spiritual virtues or lessons to be learned.
The bottom line is, forget "Realistic"! Do not box yourself in the small mentality of what can and cannot be for you based upon what you have and are.
Life is much more than what you are and have at any given moment and circumstances have a mind of their own ergo reality could make you and give you more than you ever thought possible...
Do not fence yourself in a prison of your own doing!
Merits and virtues will always be good however they are not the sole owners of success and happiness.
Reality owns whatever it allows and we must open our selves to all 360 degrees all around! We must expect the unexpected and be prepared for whatever may come.
The infantile "If I do this, then I merit and get this" is but wishful thinking because reality and the past all around you tell you differently.
Sure it feels good to work for what we wish for. Sure it is nice to believe that if we work hard on behalf of what we want, we may actually get it... But Life does not always work that way, reality does not offer any guarantees at all.
There are so many proverbial assholes/baddies in positions of success and power and most of them never worked for it nor ever merited their success and power.
Free yourself from the societal boxing of labels like "realistic" and begin to consider the fact that anything is possible.
How? First you must find a way to be exactly where you should be and to be doing exactly what you should be doing at each moment of your life.
If you do that, you will see that doors will begin to open all over town for you and life will flow and wishes will come true without much effort on your part.
I am myself trying to do that.
Love and Light,
Sky a.k.a. JD (JD Aeon)
Online informal writing/posting and blogging may not be deemed lucrative nor as great and prestigious as being published formally in magazines, newspapers and books...
However it is a valid and effective avenue for sharing as dignified as any other whether with or without all of the proverbial whistles and bells of the so-called Success - whatever that may turn out to be for each and every one of us individually!
I love sharing online and whether I, my work get formally published in magazines, newspapers and books or not, whether in the past, in the present or in the future, it will not change my sacred pleasure of sharing online as I did, do and will do until I am no more.

I Think You're Crazy
In one of my ordinary Thursday and/or Friday night attendances to the Karaoke Sessions in magickal Pennsylvanian Bethlehem (Lehigh Valley) at the GLBTIQ Club/Pub/Restaurant "THE DIAMONZ" -
I've found this meaningful song called "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley...
And I've felt its meaning being one and the same with my own personal harmonies and dissonances. I loved it!
Perhaps it is the fact that it bluntly tells you and I that we are not in control...
Because as matter of fact nobody truly is.
We all get to situations and positions in life that we tend to think confidently that we have it all figured out, that we have mastered it out... We all get the feeling that we are in control most of the time chiefly when it comes to our own personal life, our decisions and our own "thing".
But we are arrogantly mistaken. We are wrong!
Circumstances beyond our human controls are always there and they are always more powerful than us all and they will always have their way regardless of whom we are, what we have and/or how we feel.
Yes, I think you're crazy if you think you are in control because you're not! I'm not and nobody is.
Not being in control...
This does not mean that we should throw all caution and caring to the winds and act like a mad chaos harming our own selves and hurting any other human being unlucky enough to be stuck with us, in our lives or simply around us from time to time.
This does not mean that we should throw our lives in the rubbish bin.
We never know enough and we will never ever figure it all out in one lifetime.
It is an ordinary part of all life to wait and to act when doors do open for each and everyone of us however we must know our own selves enough in order to choose our true will, our truest wishes and fulfil our own reasons to be here by living that what we came here to live, to share and to experience.
A gift is always an exercise of giving and taking and regardless of whether people comply to such, circumstances sooner or later do make sure that you give as much as you receive in one way or the other.
Loss and winning cannot exist without each other.
I want to thank Diamonz's Karaoke host - Royal for bringing this tune to my attention when he had first shared it during the Karaoke night singing it a few weeks ago... Thank you!
We all are crazy sometimes because we all think that we are in control sometimes...
Love and Light,
Sky a.k.a. JD Aeon
Thoughts In Miscellaneous Extracts
Abusive relationships are so easy to get entangled with and so hard to end.
It is sad to see human beings hurting in a prison made out of their own choices.
To me, change is what all life is made out of, destruction could not exist without construction and they are lovers to each other, evil and good are simply labels, adjectives to qualify our reactions to what happens to us or anything, but they are just our limited definitions, our limited perceptions of our best understanding of our reactions.
I prefer to see all as it is, one is a part of two and two would never exist without one… It is much simpler than what it seems yet quasi impossible to be grasped sometimes.
There is a false sense of security in numbers and in following rather than leading.
I've always led all of my life even as a child and I wish I could find somebody to rest my search, to take the lead for me a little bit.
But not as,nor with any proverbial jackass/ego-tripper/abuser, I need not anyAbusers playing Master in my life!
What I need and I do wish for is a mutually loyal Lover plus true Friend in my life!
A decent / dignified,cleanhuman being whom I would mutually share fire, water, air and earthwith.
It seems so helpless and much like winning the jack-pot in the millions lotteries, the odds are so much against my finding what I am looking for.
Death can be such resting thought I do agree that we all feel that way sometimes...
However we are not cowards, we are not quitters and we fight until the end because we respect our selves and the dignity of our flesh, of our best and truest wishes.
Since early age I have always said that I would rather die trying if needed be than to give up on my best and truest wishes, my true-will, my heart's content.
My approach is not a dogma nor an imposition, nor a determinant to other people however my heart's choice, my approach is my home where my heart is, with the Triple Goddess and the Horned God and the All.
The Creatress was always a combination of everything that She made Herself out of and we are tiny stars in Her body... Birth, life and death are but a blink of Her eyes because She knows we are Her children and She loves us all.
There is no "Better than" to me but differences and valuable human beings, owner of their beautiful differences!
It is hard to make sense of all of that when Life seems so miserable sometimes and our wishes never seem to come true... But that it is the time that we must show Her our trust, our love, our loyalty no matter how hard it may seem.
My life has been a challenge because I still have not found what I am looking for and maybe I never will, maybe it is all about the sacredness of journey and all of the exchanges thereof along the road to nowhere that we all must ride while in the flesh...
Ah how I wish I could instantly make things right for me yet I must bear the mighty power of my personal circumstances saying No!
No! Don't you worry because I never ever give up! Never!
Yes, I have done past lives regressions since early age and I've always felt quite apart from most people at times because I can easily become aware of much more than I can share and as most of you might well see, most people cannot handle "to know" and to survive "that knowledge" if given to them.
Never thought of myself as better nor as superior with my being "psychic", etc...
Again it is not about superiority, nor superlatives and other qualifying labels at all...
Superior is a cheap illusion of temporary shelf-life.
Nobody is superior nor better than one another but different and equally valuable as any other human being.
Different is the key word to all and everything in my way of coming to terms with people, things and all events thereof.
It is nice to imagine our wishes coming true, yes there is a feeling of peaceful and delicious times in the air when we indulge on the virtues of our heart's wishes as we imagine how it could/would be if only circumstances would support them in full.
I guess wishes are like gifts, we cannot neglect them or we do lose them and we forget how to dream, how to wish.
Of course nasty situations and their unpleasant circumstances beyond our human control may keep our wishes from coming true for the now and here or maybe for ever, however we must strive to continue to wish, we must keep on dreaming and fiercely defending that what keeps us alive inside and outside!
It is strange and beautiful at once the surprising events of synchronicity in our lives... As we suddenly listen to a song that seems to describe our present or most recent situations or we see a film that does the same... We all are connected and what we do does affect everybody sooner or later whether in this lifetime or in other lifetimes past or future.
I love the wheel of life as it spins our souls' chosen fortunes for each lifetime in the flesh that we choose to undertake.
There is no such a thing as "What I do not know won't affect me, what I choose not to believe will go away..."
Thoughts are proverbially "Things" on-hold until their actual event and birth in the world of matter does happen, that it is, if circumstances do allow.
There is no answer that fits for all.
There is no instant relationship!
Lies have short self-life while the facts and the ever-changing truth last for eternity.
To give up?
Giving up is something to be exercised as a total surrender chiefly if/when deliciously naked abed in the arms of one's naturally mutual and loyal lover and friend, surrendering to affectionate caresses, to passionate kisses, to many delicious and penetrating thrustings of mighty desires and love within the mutuality of two freely and willing hearts united as one...
That is the only giving up that I can live and offer.
Otherwise to give up - Never! I would rather die amidst trying if needed it be than to give up!
I can compromise, I can junk everything just to buy it all back again in some tomorrow to surely come or not, I can put things away, I can put things on hold, I can wait and be patient too however I will never ever give up what I want in my heart and in my soul!
I never did and I never will until I am no more!
Circumstances do hold all the keys.
Love and Light,

In The Living Years
This morning I began to listen to this double Album CD called Billboard # 1s: The '80's and I've got to track # 8 on disc 2...
A song song came on - Mike and the Mechanics doing their "In the living years"...
At first it did not take to me as me and my belated dad never had much of problem with each other and he was always a good father and friend to me and my family in my time...
But then the line in the song sings - "I wasn't th ere that morning when my father passed away..."
I was driving to work but the tears began to fill my eyes as I felt as if it was today when he passed away back in 1996.
I've not any regrets nor any unfinished business with my dad but I must say I was not there when he passed away due to circumstances beyond his and my controls... I do miss my dear father as from time to time I remember his kindness, his dedication and his love for me and for our whole family.
I guess we take for granted the present and we think it will always be there whether it is this grey or this brilliant but the truth it is that all changes sooner or later and we do look back afterwards and we do miss and remember people and things that once were a part of our lives...
Sometimes we all think of what it was and none of us can help it but to miss it somehow.
"Celebrate me while I am alive it will give me one more reason to survive..." A dear friend once told me and the fact it is, such is very true and real!
To get out of the box from/ of the present and to look back at it from the future and realize that all and everything may be gone and only memories may have remained has an impact in our hearts and in the way we look at everybody and everything in our lives...
Maybe it is all about celebrating the here and now and reminding ourselves that it will pass and when it does we will be able to remember it fondly and without regrets much alike as I remembered my dad in the living years.
Emotions can be so deep and sweet sometimes.
Love and Light,

P.S. Have fun but with Wisdom!
Hardest thing, with my two feet firmly planted upon the deepest depth while at once my head touching the highest sky.
Crowley was good at the art of remaining separate for the sake of union, I for the sake of Meaning.
Ah tears and smiles are truly a part of one another sooner or later but always.
My verses are all I have to offer in this virtual world of many screens and many intentions which waste away between the distance of real or at times imaginary miles that we surround ourselves with.
As I am alive, healthy and able, I do not roll over when trouble knocks in my door!

I am basically a decent and good human being however I am not complete nor perfect and mistakes I've made a few!
Whenever possible I've always made sure that I freely and willingly made up for my mistakes.
So let my foibles pass because you all are "Human" just like we all are!

A bag of bones
Not easy at all to talk about bags of bones which may be way too personal but always a fact of life, something that we all are bound to encounter sometime...
While talking on the phone to my Mum who lives abroad the other day she had shared with me an emotional passage...
With the passing of somebody in family a few years ago, they had decided to exhume my late father who had passed away in the mid 1990's...
My Mum had chosen to be
present at dad's exhuming in order to see him again she had told
She disclosed to me that she had tears at the time and had been shocked and stunned to see a big man like dad reduced to a small "Bag of Bones"...
We talked it over and I shared with her that many years ago when dad was still alive and strong... The now late auntie Jessie had had herself a similar experience with another member of the family however I was there with her and saw it too...
That evening I had told dad about my experience along with auntie Jessie at the cemetery that afternoon...
I told mum, I still remember how dad smiled friendly and told me - Nonsense!
And how he loved to explain to me how we all must pass, if you are alive, you are dead because the only way out is through...
Change is what we are made out of and we, our souls will leave but our bodies will return to bones, powder and ashes...
Finally he had said - Don't be so sad because there are not any souls worth their sacred fire and light living in any cemetery anywhere except for other species following their own cycle of life in matter too.
Mum felt better somehow and seemed to smile as she thanked me for sharing that memory.
Life is beautiful but it is made out of changes and we may choose not to think of "Endings at the expense of Beginnings" however both cannot exist without each other...
Birth, Death and Rebirth again... They do happen every second at all levels in all that exists from macro to micro, no exceptions!
It is the sacred dance of existence - "Changing to free and freeing to change" for the sake of the evolution of all and everything that exist at all levels, at all places from macro to micro and in all worlds!
We are so busy living Life, taking chances with our bravery and surviving the risks with our wisdom...
Sometimes we forget to remember that we all are made out of changes, we forget the bag of bones, powder and ashes...
Maybe it might well be good for us all to temper a bit our ego, our excesses, our dislikes, our our mania for power over others, our hunger for control, our businesslike ruthless ways with a touch of the unavoidable mortality of our flesh, of our material world stuff.
But at the end of the day, We all are human beings and it is ok to be human.
I would not want to be in this world without my awareness, my love, my trust and dedication for the Goddess.
Love and Light!
