FAVORITE SONG ON A PARTY PLAYLIST?

SERVE

HOW DO YOU SERVE YOURSELF BEFORE TAKING CARE OF OTHERS?

THIS LIST IS SO LONG. I DO BELIEVE ACTUALLY THAT WHEN WE HEAL OURSELVES WE ACTUALLY HEAL THOUSANDS IF NOT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE. IT IS THE MOST SELFLESS ACT, TO AWAKEN. A MAN OR WOMAN WHO IS AWAKE WAKES PEOPLE FOR CENTURIES TO COME, LOOK AT ABRAHAM LINCOLN, RUMI, HILDEGARD VON BINGEN, SHAKESPEARE! WE ARE STILL ALL MOVED BY THESE PEOPLE. I DEVOTE MY LIFE TO CONSCIOUSNESS THE REST IS A SIDE EFFECT. WHEN YOU ARE AWAKE YOU ARE ONLY EVER IN SERVICE TO OTHERS. 

 

HEALING

HEALER/PRACTITIONER ON SPEED DIAL?

GOD. I LIKE TO GO DIRECTLY TO THE SOURCE. (I AM NOT RELIGIOUS, THIS IS A PURELY SPIRITUAL ANSWER) 

 

WHAT MODALITY ARE YOU MOST CURIOUS ABOUT OR WANT TO TRY?

I FEEL FULLY STEEPED IN THE SYSTEM OF WORK THAT I HAVE DEVOTED MY LIFE TO AND AM NOT REALLY ON A QUEST ANYMORE. MY AIM NOW IS TO HELP THE WORLD AND TO CONTINUE TO CONNECT WITH THE BLISS AND HIGHER STATES THAT I AM FAMILIAR WITH. 

 

EXPAND

WHEN HAS YOUR HEART EXPANDED TO ITS GREATEST CAPACITY?

IN MOMENTS OF PRESENCE. 

 

WHAT ENTERED YOUR LIFE AS A RESULT OF YOUR EXPANSION?

WILLINGNESS TO WORK HARD AS HELL TO HAVE A LIFE FILLED WITH MOMENTS OF PRESENCE AND THEN INTENSE ACTION!!!

 

CONSCIOUS

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE CONSCIOUS?

JOY, EASE, NOTHING. IT HAS NO MEANING BECAUSE IT IS A STATE THAT CAN'T BE UNDERSTOOD INTELLECTUALLY. 

 

WHAT IS A CONSCIOUS LIFESTYLE?

RIGOROUS OPPOSITE ACTION AND THE INCORPORATION OF MAGIC AND LOVE. BY MAGIC I DON'T MEAN WITCH CRAFT. I MEAN SIMPLY THE REMEMBRANCE OF ONES OWN INNOCENCE AND TRUE SELF.
