Oneness Ministry

We are One

Stupidest Question Ever Asked

The human mind can reason anything. The tool used is the power of deduction or the rational mind. So follow along and see if this makes sense. If you follow my blog then you know I teach Oneness and what that means. If not, then perhaps more study is in order. It has taken many years (50+) for me to reach these conclusions (God Is and nothing else is). Now I share my wisdom with you – do with it what you will.

By choosing birth we have chosen death. Make no mistake, you did choose to be here. It may not have been a conscious choice, but a choice none the less. It is like walking though a door on the 50th floor which opens to the outside of the building, you may not want to fall, but it happens whether you chose to fall or not. You took the step. Some may say this is simple consequence and perhaps it is. What I am leading to here is if you can choose an action with a consequence then why not choose the consequence? We obviously chose Death! HERE WE ARE! We took that step!

Suicide is taboo in society, so have you ever questioned why? Why is it when we have already chosen death by being born we cannot choose when or how we die? The next question you may not have considered is who is making this choice? The small self/ego self or the Infinite God self? Since God self is infinite and immortal it is unlikely this is who is making the choice. Since the only aspect of our self which can die is Ego this is the more likely culprit! The ego is not alive though, it only thinks it is and it constantly manipulates our experience on this level (the world you see around you) to make you think that it is. It’s reasoning… If you can die then you must be alive… right?

If you doubt this world is unreal, then ask yourself would God create a world with pain and suffering the likes of what we have here? Does anything in this world really hold up to scrutiny? Does it last forever? Does anything here make sense? Not to me!! I can assure you. I believe we are here to “loose our minds” for this is the way out. Ego mind is the scene generator behind this reality. Perhaps you have heard the Cave parable written by Plato? The longer I “live” the less convinced I am anything matters at all. Shadows all around….

So if God is infinite and immortal then we are speaking here of Ego death. I have experienced it many times in my mind as well as my experience. The next question is what does the Ego consist of? The answer is everything you see! Btw, did you know the eyes don’t see, the mind does? Yes, it is the Ego mind which sees for us. What we see is a projection from our own minds. It’s all “fake news”. The real is infinite and immortal… never ending… it does not die and was not born.

Once again, why does it matter whether we seem to take our life or allow “life” to take it? Natural death is an Oxymoron! Is this about giving or taking? I have done both and I will say giving feels better. Is this really my life to give though? What does giving of life really mean anyway? The Native American stories I have heard say when hunting, animals give their lives (bodies) so that other bodies may live. This means there is a conscious choice being made. Perhaps it is the hunter who actually makes this choice and maybe it is the animal who sacrifices itself to gain in the Spiritual Realm. Whatever you believe is what you will experience. Twenty six years ago I sat with a gun in my mouth asking myself these same questions! Which is it?

I have found that writing about death & suicide and expressing these feelings really helps to alleviate any related distress. God exists outside of Space/Time and knows nothing of our experience here. God knows only Love for this is what God is. The part of me considering taking life is Ego and delusion, for it is not possible to take something that is not yours! Notice I did not say take my own life. It is not mine to take. Ultimately this is the reason “i” am still here. These dilemmas here in Space and Time are on a feedback loop, repeating ad nauseum. Enjoying the ride?

The stupidest question you’ll ever ask is:

Why?   Dictionary meaning:

1. for what reason or purpose. [Why do we need a reason or purpose?]

Suicide defined: “the act or an instance of taking one’s own life voluntarily and intentionally.”

 

So what again exactly are we “taking”? So you think you have “a life”? Is this real? What is real?

I believe this is where the whole game falls apart. We believe… we have a life, that others have a life, that anything we see or feel is real. Belief is where it all “becomes real” to us. It is literally, according to the dictionary, “an acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists.”

What if the belief in “reality” is what leads us astray? What if we choose not to believe? Is not believing a belief? Just as having no religion, still a belief? Atheists are still indoctrinated in denial! I mean how do we even know we are alive? Don’t even get me started on proof! All facts are in fact part of the construct. There are no facts… just as nothing is really alive! So again I ask, how could anyone ever die or commit suicide when we only exist in mind? Don’t forget, “what you think of an-other you think of yourself.”

I know now this is my life’s purpose, ROFL. I assume I learned about suicide from my dad who had patients commit suicide (he is a psychiatrist). I remember at least 3 friends who I personally knew in high school who “did the deed”, two of which were closet gay (another taboo worth questioning). Perhaps the other was too, but I am not sure about that. I have not gone long without thinking of the “deed”. Frankly, I have lived a very long time with these thoughts (or have I?), but they are catching up with me. I have heard every argument in the book both for and against. Do you believe in destiny? LOL, neither do I.

Blessings on Your “Journey of Love”,

All Death is Suicide 2014

The world is indeed evolving and I am glad to be a part of it.  The subject for today’s blog is not new but it is also near and dear to my heart.  I repost this blog in honor of Robin Williams who brought Joy to us all, as well as teaching us the lesson of Love.  Remember to remain open to new ideas and never judge others for the path they choose.

I find it strange that to die by “accident” is unavoidable but to die by suicide is sinful and unacceptable.  These beliefs serve a purpose of course, because they help us to make it through tough times when it is so easy to just end it.  Love is the answer, everything else are just excuses.  Consider the following quotes and make up your own mind.

“There is no such thing as an accident; everything that happens to you in every moment of every day is an exact vibrational match (thanks to the Law of Attraction) to the dominant thoughts you are thinking.

No exceptions, ever.

And, just to really throw the cat among the pigeons (as the saying goes), here’s one of Abraham’s most controversial (but completely true) sayings…

All death is suicide.

…which is a natural conclusion anyway if there is no such thing as an accident.” Stingray

It seems that everything is a choice, even death!  This goes right down to the color of your eyes and your genetic structure.  Not that all choice is conscious.  These choices were made before you were born and through thoughts, words, and actions taken by you along the path.

“However, the fear of death is unnecessary.  The truth is that all death is suicide.  At its core, everything is a choice.  There is an awakening occurring on the planet for those who are paying attention in which we are realizing how much choice we actually have in the creation of our reality.  As we accept our power we must let go of the desire to be accepted or understood by those who are stuck in mainstream thought.  This willingness to transcend the fears of others and become a pioneer is crucial to personal evolution.

In life, a central challenge is to let go of the idea that your body is decaying with time.  It is not.  It is actually recreating itself constantly.”  Unification.com

“In the Conversations with God Series by Neale Donald Walsh, God says that all death is suicide, and it is just a matter of whether we want to do it quickly, or over time with eating bad food, breathing polluted air, smoking, drinking etc. If someone is in pain, God does not want one to suffer, and does not blame someone for leaving their body quickly. If someone was to love you so much they would understand that, to keep you is selfish, everyone is sad when someone dies, not because so much they think something bad happened to them, but they cry for themselves, that what they want is no longer with them. Take this story for instance I was so in love with this guy, we lived together for a year, but I noticed he would go in the bedroom all sad and close the door sometimes. I found out he was looking at pictures of his kids he loved so much and his wife he was still in love with. I planned it out and talked him into moving to the city where his children and ex lived, and when we got there I said this is where I drop you off, I am moving on. I loved him enough to let him go and try to work things out with his wife and to be there for his children. Now, that is love.”  Kathy Miller

Remember that every thought, word, and action leads to your experience in this world and ultimately to your fate.  We are guided by higher powers, no matter how you think of them, Divine Being, God, or Higher Self.  Listen to this guidance and you will make it through the maze of life to the Promised Land.  There is no right or wrong way home.  Nanu-Nanu!

Transgender Suicide

“Transgender Suicide Report

For the last five years Laura’s Playground has prevented Transgender suicides on line. (Click Here for a link) The estimate of transgender suicides in our community is between 31% to 50% depending on who in the community we talk to. Few outside our Community acknowledge or believe these numbers including Dr Kenneth Zucker and Doctors Blanchard and Baily. Until now it’s all been guesswork. Actual numbers were hard to come by as it is hard enough for families to admit there was a suicide let alone that the victims were transgender. The fact is most medical examiners do not know if a person was gay or transgender due to families too embarrassed to report it. Here we have 5 suicide prevention crisis rooms in chat that are all busy. Our staff both moderators and supervisors are certified in youth suicide prevention. The fact is we have actual numbers not just an estimate. In a 5 year period here this site handled 78,800 suicidal crisis’s online. They were of 3 types. Type 3 being suicide ideation, Type 2 being suicide ideation with a plan and Type 1 being actual suicide attempts.

Type 3 = 46933 Type 2 = 20238 Type 1= 11629

In addition, in a survey here over 50% of Transsexuals had at least one suicide attempt by their 20th birthday some as young as 7. This was also verified by chat transcripts of the crisis’s especially in the early years. Reasons given for suicide in order:

1) Problems coming out to homophobic friends, families and co-workers. Homophobia in general including slurs.

2) Body Image Distress or disgust – puberty

3) Discrimination – Housing – Employment – Church’s

4) Victims of Hate crimes and/or violence

These are actual numbers and reflect what is really going on in the community. Many had more than 1 reason combining 1 and 2 and others. The biggest surprise was the role homophobia played in suicide ideation. If homophobia stopped tomorrow the suicide rate would be significantly reduced which means it is preventable.” (Laura Amato 2012)

The one reason I see lacking here is money.  Many transsexuals lack the money to have any treatment at all and most lack the funds to have SRS/GRS.  We are talking 50k to 150K depending on surgery, electrolysis, therapy, and hormones.  Those who are most severely dysphoric are most likely to end it all due to a lack of funds.  It is an option I keep in the back of my mind and review quite often.  Fortunately, I understand I am not my body and removing the body will not fix anything.  I even hesitate to have surgery at all knowing that ultimately it changes only my appearance.  My soul has no gender, but that is another story.

The good news is there are organizations working hard to remedy this predicament many of us face.  Advocacy groups are working to change the insurance laws and get transgender care including surgery added to most plans. The AMA has come out and stated that surgery is a medically necessary treatment for Gender Dysphoria, see my website for link to statement. As it stands now, a few carry it as a rider and most of these are because the Corporation or Municipality negotiated/demanded them into the options they offer.

Many larger communities have organizations who offer low cost therapy and Denver has several.  The Gender Identity Center, who I volunteer with, offers therapy and hormone letters to those in need on an ability to pay basis. Here is a link to therapists who specialize in gender care.  If you can’t afford them, ask for options in your area.  I am happy to help if I can, also check my website for other resources.

The Jim Collins Foundation offers a grant for surgery to those meeting their qualifications, click here for info.  Some surgeons offer scholarships or grant programs to assist their clients in payment.  Check with your surgeon to find out what they offer.  I do know Dr. Reed in Miami has a program for the first 13 per year who apply.  There are companies like Satori Medical who help clients find low cost surgery in Thailand and other locations.  Many creative solutions have been found over the years by many a resourceful individual.  Necessity is the Mother of Invention after all!

The best way to deal with a perceived lack is to help someone else fulfill their need.  This is one reason I started this website, to give what I need!  If you know of a need in the world, reach out and help, you will be helping yourself.

All Death Is Suicide 2012

The end of the year is upon us and so this is my last and final blog of 2012, the year of Prophecy!  Everyone I know is still here and looking forward to a new and prosperous year.  There is something about endings that we love to romanticize and I am no different.  Knowing there is an end to the pain and suffering observed around the world gives me comfort.  Knowing there is a higher purpose to all that manifests on this plane is what keeps me going.  For me the ideal world is one which operates on a NL/RBE (natural law/resource based economy).  I feel it manifesting as I write this and know it has been in the works for quite some time now.  The world is indeed evolving and I am glad to have been a part of it.  The subject for today’s blog is not new but it is also near and dear to my heart.  Remember to remain open to new ideas and never judge others for the path they choose.

Perspectives On Life

I offer up this article below because it is wonderfully written and as close to the Truth as I have found so far.  Proceed with caution!  Do you really what to know the Truth?  Can you handle it?  The beautiful thing about life is that it never gives you something you cannot handle, and if for some reason you are overwhelmed the body shuts down to protect the mind.  Sometimes traumatic events leave one in a coma, and this state is sort of like neutral.  The soul decides what to do with this event, and the emotions associated with it.  If it decides to move on then the body wakes up and if not the body dies.  The consciousness of this person never dies as I have written about many times.  All matter is energy and thus it can change form, so read on to hear another person’s perspectives on this subject.  Please forgive the length, I know it is longer than I usually post, but it feels right.  I welcome your comments and love a good discussion.  Cheers!

The Meaning of Life

Kem Stone, May 2000

The purpose of my life has been to discover the purpose of life.  The answers are out there, if anyone chooses to look for them.  Truth can be found in religion and science as well as books, movies, and music. In particular, the novel Illusions by Richard Bach, the song “Innuendo” by Queen, and the Pink Floyd albums The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon.  Through these works of art, most concepts of the Universe can be understood.  The truth can be found, but only if a person chooses to look.

In this essay, I will attempt to outline the truth as best I can.  For all who want to know the answers, they can be found here, in this documentation of my life’s work.  However, with this truth comes an entirely different perspective on everything—a perspective that makes it almost impossible to live in this world.  To any and all who may read this, be warned that if you choose to believe the truth, it will change the way you perceive everything.  The purpose of this essay is to let all those who want to know the answers find them.  Also, it will serve as a solid document containing all the theories I’ve spent my lifetime finding.  Finally, it should serve as a suicide note, for once I am finished, I plan on leaving this world.

Three Dimensions of Thought

To understand this essay, you must understand the differentiations between dimensions of thought.  There are three dimensions of thinking.  The first is 1-dimensional thought, which is what most people of this world use to do most of their thinking.  This is the thought produced in your brain, and it covers everything solid and concrete that is absolutely and undisputedly there.  In 2-dimensional thought, there is more than what is simply there.  Most poetry and song lyrics are 2-dimensional, containing metaphors and symbols, which represent things different from what they are on the first dimension.  Then there is the third dimension, which is simply the truth.  It is logic where there is none, like in a dream.  All dreams have meaning, but only in the third dimension.  This essay explains the concepts of third dimensional thought, but using first dimensional language, which limits the amount of truth I can convey.

What is written on this paper is the truth, no exceptions.  If you choose to believe any of what I say, you must believe it all, because there are no contradictions when it comes to reality.  The more complicated the answers to the meaning of life become, the further from the truth they are.  There are only three true statements that can be made to apply to everything, and I will explain each of them in detail.  The only three fundamental truths of the Universe are:  1- Life is experience, 2- Existence is infinite, 3- Fate is a choice.

Life is Experience

There are three elements that make up the whole of existence.  They are space, time, and life.  There must be space for anything to exist, for without matter, there would be nothing.  That’s the most obvious truth there can be.  But what fewer people will accept because it is beyond 1-dimensional comprehension is that there are infinite types of matter existing in the universe.  The universe consists of far more than merely planets, solar systems, and galaxies, but of everything imaginable.  There must also be time in order for there to be existence.  Without time, nothing would change, and matter would be like a still picture frame, or a film paused at one point.  It is obvious that time must exist, but it is less commonly believed that there are infinite types of time.  Things change all around the universe, but in an infinite number of ways.  Time can also be moved faster or slower, forwards or backwards, or stopped.

So then, what is the meaning of life?  Couldn’t the universe exist without living creatures to experience it?  If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is around, does it not make a sound?  The answer is no.  In order for the universe to exist, there must be souls in existence, moving in, out, and around it.  The meaning of life is experience.  Emotions, despite popular scientific believe that they originate in the mind, come straight from the soul.  Without living souls to experience space and time, and feel the emotions these inspire, neither could exist.  And just as there are infinite types of matter, and infinite ways things can change, there are infinite emotions that can be felt.  The most powerful emotion, though, can be felt everywhere at every time throughout the universe, and that is love.  Truth and Love are the only things that remain constant throughout existence.

Our lives take us into the Universe, into any part we choose.  We have an infinite amount of lives to live, an infinite amount of experiences to have.  Before we begin a life, we decide what experience we want to have, and we enter the universe in the space and time where we can have that experience.  In these lifetimes, we are free to do whatever we choose, and we are free to change our minds about our decisions, unless we choose not to allow ourselves to change our minds.

Richard Bach uses the word “illusion” to describe the lives we live.  This is a very accurate perception of the truth.  Time, space, and life, are all illusions.  Nothing that goes on anywhere, at any time, or to anyone affects the underlying “reality.”  Reality is divinely indifferent.  It doesn’t care what experiences we choose to have, what times and spaces we choose to feel emotions at.  Richard, in his book Illusions, analogizes our lives to motion pictures.  We walk into a film knowing what we’re going to experience: romance, horror, action, comedy, fantasy, etc.  But what happens in the film doesn’t affect what happens around us, only our emotional outlook on things.  We can choose any film we want, and we’re free to change it, see it again, or walk out in the middle.  We are the actor, director, producer, and screenwriter of our lives – our films.

Existence is Infinite

The being referred to as “God” is actually an infinitely different amount of beings.  God is a character created my man to explain the inexplicable.  Recently, in this world, man has turned to science to explain the order of the universe.  God and science are both names for the same thing:  an explanation of time and space in the illusion.  In reality, God is simply a being in which all emotions of every soul are felt at once, all time, all space, and all that has ever been exists in God.  In short, God is existence.

The Is, the combination of all time, space, and life, of everything and nothing is incomprehensible to a singular soul.  How all things that exist can be combined in one presence is a phenomenon incapable of being understood.  The phenomenon of omnipresence, of existence everywhere and nowhere, lies beyond the realm of dimensional thought.  God exists on the fourth dimension, a plane of infinite existence that stretches through the realm of everything and nothing.  God creates all time, space, and life.  It is a part of every soul, and every soul is a part of it.  It has no past, present, or future, it resides in no location, its emotions belong to no one, it just Is.

This does not mean anyone else’s perceptions are wrong.  If a person believes that God sits on a throne in the clouds, and punishes the wicked whenever they do wrong, they are absolutely correct, because it’s what they believe.  Truths we hold in the illusion are the truths of our perception.  Whatever we believe is the truth, is truth in this lifetime.  What I outline in this essay are the truths of the entire Universe, that do not differ, but it is your choice whether or not to believe them.  If you decide not to believe what I say, then what I say is not true.

God is existence.  Existence is infinite.  What does infinite mean?  Well, on the first dimension, infinite existence means that if you sent a space ship on a course to the edge of the universe, it would never reach it.  On the second dimension, infinite existence could suggest that a soul could live forever, and never experience everything.  Both these explanations are correct as far as the truth goes.  But on the third dimension, what infinite existence means is that anything a soul could possibly imagine, anything at all, exists somewhere and at some time in the universe.

All a soul has to do is imagine a world, and the Is creates it.  A soul could imagine a world where there is no God, and the Is will create that world, and that world will in fact have no God.  Another soul could then imagine the very same world that is ruled by a God, and the Is will put that soul into the very same world as the other soul.  Only for this soul, the world will have a God, or two, or infinite, however many are specified by the soul.  Two souls living in the same world, but with two different perceptions.  Both are right, because of the one truth that holds true for all truths: Existence is Infinite.

Pink Floyd touched on this very truth in the album Dark Side of the Moon, probably without knowing it.  Throughout the medley of music, songs come on with lyrics of both dimensions.  “Time” and “Money” have very 1-dimensional lyrics, while “Breathe,” “Us and Them,” and “Brain Damage” journey into 2-dimensional logic.  But the very last song, “Eclipse,” is one of the rare works of art that stretch into the third dimension.  The last two lines of the song are “and everything under the sun is in tune, but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.”  Translated into 1-dimensional terms, this means that everything you experience really happens, but eclipsed by the moon.  The moon being a symbol for Truth.  The dark side of the moon is a place where there is no truth.  Everything happens, but it is only truth under the shadow of the greater truth, that Existence is Infinite.  The last thing said on the album, very faintly, says it all: “There is no Dark Side of the Moon really.  Matter of fact, it’s all Dark.”  There is no world where nothing exists; the entire universe doesn’t exist.

Fate is a Choice

So now comes the time to face the unpopular side of this philosophy: freedom.  We have the freedom to do whatever we want to do.  We decide what we want when we come into this world.  We are shown everything that will happen before it happens.  We then enter the illusion, and forget all other lives we’ve had, all other truths we’ve known, all other realities that have existed.  Unless, of course, we choose to remember them, as Jesus had, but I won’t get into that.  While inside the illusion, we are free to change our minds, stop the film, turn it off, or do whatever we want.  But in most lifetimes, we don’t let ourselves do that.  The fact is, whatever happens to us, happens because we wanted it to happen.

Evil is an illusion.  There is no evil, only that which exists in a soul’s imagination.  Some souls choose to live their lives as a bad guy, and there is nothing wrong with that, because any victims they claim are only victims because they chose to be.  There are no conflicting desires.  Everyone gets exactly what they want.  If a soul chooses a life of persecution, they will get it, and all the rich drama that comes with it.  Of course, they want to be persecuted, but they don’t want to want to be persecuted.  If a father of a murdered girl understood that his daughter died because he wanted her too, the emotion would be lost on that.  The concept that crime and injustice exists because we want it to is not an easy thing to accept.  The universe is a perfect place, and everyone experiences exactly what they choose to experience.  The perfect universe is a concept impossible to accept for all those who choose to be victims, and that is okay.

Fate is the current that carries us along in this world, which I call Millennium Earth.  In this world of finite things, there will be an end.  Every event that has ever happened leads to the end of the world, a judgment day in which evil and injustice will be obliterated, and the human race can live in harmony.  When that day comes, each

soul will make a choice: to believe in the truth offered to them and live eternally, or not to accept, and perish.  Those who believe are those souls who are in existence today, living free to move in and out of the illusion at any time or place, and having every experience they desire.  All these concepts can be found in the lyrics of Queen’s song “Innuendo”, and in my book of the same title.  This end-of-the-world saga is the truth of this world, but merely an innuendo to the whole truth of the universe.  There is no death.  Even those who choose not to believe and perish are still free to change their minds.  All events are causes that lead to the one effect: judgment day, but nothing makes it so we can’t change these causes.  All paths lead to life, no matter what paths we choose.  We can change whatever we want, but in the end, the fate of our world remains the same, and the truth does not stray from the one fact that Fate is a Choice.  In “Innuendo” Queen sings of all the truths of the world, all the injustices of life, and then makes the bold statement to stand out: “You can be anything you want to be.  Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be.”  This concept of truth behind truth can only be understood on the third dimension, and cannot be accepted on the first.  It is the hint made by Queen, by Richard Bach, by Pink Floyd, and by me.  “Through our sorrow, all through our splendor, don’t take offense at my Innuendo.”

Millennium Earth

We all live in different worlds, but we all share this one space-time I call Millennium Earth.  The world around us is currently home to six billion souls.  I call it Millennium Earth because this world exists only at this time, and only at this point in space.  All our history, from the prehistoric age, to biblical times, to the last century, was all different worlds.  Even now, each individual soul lives in its own world with its own truths and own choices.  We all have one thing in common: we chose this space-time.  We all have one thing in common: why we chose this space-time.  Based on my own observations and experiences, and a little help from the “bleeding hearts and artists,” I have come up with my theories as to why we live the way we do.

Society in Millennium Earth is designed to divide.  Pink Floyd calls it The Wall, which is a very accurate symbol for the divisions created by us in our worlds.  We use The Wall to divide people from each other, people from themselves, and to divide the illusion from the truth.  Everywhere there is crime, hunger, hate, disease, and countless other “injustices of God.”  Bad things happen to good people because it’s their choice.  We all came here to live in a world with The Wall.  I chose this life to have the experience of tearing down The Wall, and seeing the truth behind the illusion.  Most people will not have chosen this life to do that, so they will not want to believe the truths I tell them, and that is okay.

It is possible to live “Outside The Wall.”  In any illusion, the wall can be torn down, and the underlying truths of infinite existence, purpose of life, and choice of fate can be seen.  Once this is understood, and it can be seen that nothing is real, we can change the illusions to our liking.  We can perform magic, but only if we let ourselves.  In the past of space-time, people who lived beyond the illusion performed magic and were called wizards, witches, or prophets.  In Millennium Earth, no one chooses to do that.  Because I know the secret of the illusions, I can perform magic, but I don’t want to, or I would have chosen a world where this was possible.  Before I came in, I decided not to let myself perform any miracles.

Outside The Wall are the people who love us.  Inside The Wall, we have those we love, but they take on different forms, those of our friends, our lovers, and our family.  They are our spiritual family.  There are infinite members of each family, and there are infinite families.  We choose which members of our family we will enter a life with, and which parts they will play.  A lot of the time, our actual family contains none of the members of our spiritual family.  But we are always in the same world as our soul mate, a cosmic partner with whom we are connected to beyond the realm of emotion. Sometimes we choose not to find our soul mate, or we choose for them not to recognize us.  In this world of suffering, very few people allow themselves to love their soul mate, and that is okay.

This is a perception that is not easy to live with, but is the truth.  Very few people who live inside The Wall would like to believe that they only struggle because they want to.  That is because Millennium Earth is specifically set up to do everything it can to block the truth that we are free.  To be free and happy, all you have to do is stop struggling.  As a guide to living this way, simply follow three rules: 1-Don’t do any work unless you want to, 2-Quit any organization you do not want to be a part of, 3-Don’t respect anyone who does not respect you.  Respect is an understanding of another soul’s decisions, an understanding that whatever they choose is the right choice.  These rules are the rules of a fool, but a fool who knows the truth.  You won’t get very far in this world by living by that code, but rest assured, you will get what you want, as long as you understand that you want even those things you don’t want.  As Led Zeppelin says in my favorite song of this lifetime, “Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run there’s still time to change the road you’re on.”

So once you stop living inside The Wall, what happens?  Pink Floyd laid it out precisely in The Wall.  Once you say “Stop!  I wanna go home, take off this uniform and leave the show,” you will find yourself to be “waiting in this cell because I have to know, have I been guilty all this time?”  Following will be the trial of your lifetime.  As everything that has ever happened to you, everyone you’ve ever known, all the bricks in the wall come back to build themselves around you, the worms will eat into your brain.  But in the end, the worms (the people who judge you) don’t matter, because you decide the verdict, and though it sounds terrible to “tear down the wall” you will do it, and “the ones who really love you” will “walk up and down Outside the Wall.”

Basically, there will be consequences to your actions, but they will be whatever you choose them to be.  It is possible to live a life without consequences, but we don’t want to.  Millennium Earth is for those people who want to struggle.  For those of us who change our minds, and decide to stop struggling, there is always the option of suicide.  If there is anything that all religions, philosophies, and societies of Millennium Earth agree on is that suicide is wrong.  But in reality, suicide is just walking out when you’re finished.  Millennium Earth can’t allow people to accept this as a reasonable choice, because if we can just end our lives, our struggles don’t seem reasonable.  But all death is suicide, because we’ve all chosen to die at some point.  And it is a perfect world, so nobody dies without their consent, and the consent of all others.  Any pain brought to anyone’s life by death or suicide is there because they have chosen for it to be there, and that is a truth that Millennium Earth will never allow them to accept.

Death is not the end.  You can always come back and try again.  You can choose to return to a world identical to Millennium Earth, but with the ability to perform magic, and to remember previous realities and lives of your choosing.  It can all be done. Anything you can possibly imagine can and does exist at some place and at some time with some emotion.  Believe that, and the rest will follow.  Or don’t believe it.  Whatever you believe is true, is true.  Whatever you decide the answers are, they are.  Whatever you decide God is, it is.  Whatever pleasure or pain you want, you can have.  Whatever you decide to be real, will be reality.  Nothing really exists anyway.  In the end, only Love is real.  So make your choices, and enjoy the experiences.

All Death Is Suicide

Musing about a recent death in my life, I came across the following quotes which shine a most illuminating light on things.  Just so you know, a dear friend that I worked and played with has left this earth plane by way of car accident (official designation).  It is my belief that she left by choice in a method agreeable by most she knew.  I find it strange that to die by “accident” is unavoidable but to die by suicide is sinful and unacceptable.  These beliefs serve a purpose of course, because they help us to make it through tough times when it is so easy to just end it.  Love is the answer, everything else are just excuses.  Consider the following quotes and make up your own mind.

“There is no such thing as an accident; everything that happens to you in every moment of every day is an exact vibrational match (thanks to the Law of Attraction) to the dominant thoughts you are thinking.

No exceptions, ever.

And, just to really throw the cat among the pigeons (as the saying goes), here’s one of Abraham’s most controversial (but completely true) sayings…

All death is suicide.

…which is a natural conclusion anyway if there is no such thing as an accident.” Stingray

It seems that everything is a choice, even death!  This goes right down to the color of your eyes and your genetic structure.  Not that all choice is conscious.  These choices were made before you were born and through thoughts, words and actions taken by you.

“However, the fear of death is unnecessary.  The truth is that all death is suicide.  At its core, everything is a choice.  There is an awakening occurring on the planet for those who are paying attention in which we are realizing how much choice we actually have in the creation of our reality.  As we accept our power we must let go of the desire to be accepted or understood by those who are stuck in mainstream thought.  This willingness to transcend the fears of others and become a pioneer is crucial to personal evolution.

In life, a central challenge is to let go of the idea that your body is decaying with time.  It is not.  It is actually recreating itself constantly.”  Unification.com

“In the Conversations with God Series by Neale Donald Walsh, God says that all death is suicide, and it is just a matter of whether we want to do it quickly, or over time with eating bad food, breathing polluted air, smoking, drinking etc. If someone is in pain, God does not want one to suffer, and does not blame someone for leaving their body quickly. If someone was to love you so much they would understand that, to keep you is selfish, everyone is sad when someone dies, not because so much they think something bad happened to them, but they cry for themselves, that what they want is no longer with them. Take this story for instance I was so in love with this guy, we lived together for a year, but I noticed he would go in the bedroom all sad and close the door sometimes. I found out he was looking at pictures of his kids he loved so much and his wife he was still in love with. I planned it out and talked him into moving to the city where his children and ex lived, and when we got there I said this is where I drop you off, I am moving on. I loved him enough to let him go and try to work things out with his wife and to be there for his children. Now, that is love.”  Kathy Miller

Remember that every thought, word and action leads to your experience in this world and ultimately to your fate.  We are guided by higher powers, no matter how you think of them, either Divine Being, God or Higher Self.  Listen to this guidance and you will make it through the maze of life to the Promised Land.  There is no right or wrong way home.

Bullying?

Bullying is getting blamed for a string of suicides in the LGBT community.  Since I am not responsible for my own life, it must be the other guy’s fault, especially those mean kids who call me names and disrespect me.  Right?  This is portentous ground we travel on here!

Here is a video from the “It Gets Better” project started by Dan Savage.  They offer some compelling statistics and a convincing argument against bullying.  Is this not a “no brainer?”  Harming anyone in any way, verbally, physically, or mentally is simply wrong, not because there is a right way and a wrong way, but because what you do onto another, you have done to yourself!  The Oneness concept is so important to understand in this regard. 

Suicide is hard to explain because the individual committing the act is not around to explain.  However, since there is but one mind, the reasons can be ascertained by simply looking at the individual’s life.  Being a transgender woman who has attempted suicide I can tell you from personal experience it is not about blaming anyone.  All suicide is a cry for help on some level.  The reason anyone commits suicide is because they have no other options they are aware of.  The key is “aware of”.  Let’s give our children options!  Anyone who has felt different or for some reason stands out must learn to deal with their situation. 

Once again I am very familiar with this as a 6’11” transwomen!  The best gifts I have received along my path have been coping skills combined with Loving support.  There is often at least one person in your life that cares enough to show you that you are Loved.  For me it was my Grandmother, along with others in my family who taught me that I am a worthy individual and a valuable person in this world. 

Is this not what we all desire?  A gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender person is no different than anyone else in this regard.  We are human beings and we need to treat all members as equals!  Just because someone is different is no excuse for abuse! 

This Transition Blog’s main purpose is to teach coping techniques and Spiritual concepts.  I am telling you now that when you have something to believe in, something larger than yourself, getting through the difficult situations that we all face is so much easier.  You are never alone.

The other thing that helps get you through the rough spots is having friends; a community that supports you and loves you for YOU.  I know that sometimes you feel like you cannot trust anyone, not even yourself!  As the world closes in on you all goes dark, there is no way out!  So Hara Kari wins…  It does not have to!!  There is always another choice, all ways and always! 

The one thing that has helped me lately is to help others.  When you help others you are helping yourself, it is an awesome principle. “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Bullying Is Nothing New

Bullying happens at all ages, but during the teenage years it is especially difficult to handle because this is too young to have developed good coping skills.  So in keeping with the theme of this blog, I would like to share my perspective on bullying.  When President Obama makes a public plea to the American people to put a stop to bullying, you know the issue has grown to a level that needs attention. 

The recent suicides that have made the news are nothing new, although they are tragic.  The reality is that teens are susceptible to suicide whether they are LBGT or not, but it is actually the elderly that have the highest rate of suicide.  While it is good to look at this issue and yes all children should be able to grow up in an environment free of bullying.  The core issue here is not bullying, but respect for Life itself!  Our children need to be taught to respect all life and to understand that everything they do, even little “jokes” are harmful when taken the wrong way or when they are allowed to get out of hand.  For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action!  The simple laws of physics can be applied. 

When statistics are consulted the evidence shows that the middle age (45-54) and elderly years (75+) are the most likely time for suicide per the World Health Organization in a 2005 survey.  The LGBT suicide rate is reported to be 2-3 times higher than average for teens from a study reported in 1999, although to me that seems a little out of date being at least 11 years old.  The point of the statistics here is to point out the issue is not new, but is just getting well deserved press and exposure.  The rules have not changed and our reactions should be the same regardless of what the world throws at you.  Do onto others what you would have done onto you!  Children do not always think about such things, so it is up to adults to model this for them, to remind them in a loving manner that everyone has feelings and to make them accountable so the lessons stick.  Compassion can be used in all means of discipline!  It is important to keep the wounding to a minimum when facing these issues. 

Suicide attempts are a cry for help and it is help we need to be offering, not drugs or punishment.  These kids need our Love and Compassion!  They need support and someone to show them there is nothing wrong with them.  Being Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, or Transgender is not abnormal, weird or anything of such.  It is a normal biological variant in the mammalian species and other species as well.  The law of probability shows that anything that is possible will eventually occur.  Certain conditions occur more than others.  Our differences are not to be condemned but celebrated!  We are each special in our own way, this is our gift to the world!  See this in another, like in the movie Avatar, “I SEE YOU”!  See the value that each person possess and celebrate it, acknowledge it, accept it. 

The answers always lay within, so to help another help yourself first by Loving yourself for who you are, no matter what that may be.  Then you have the basis to share from.  Everything you do is setting an example for someone else, so teach with your actions by accepting and loving everyone you meet just as they are!  It is only as hard as you say it is.  Life is Simple, easy is up to you!

Self Murder

The Oneness perspective of suicide is when you kill yourself you are committing murder!  “Though salt not kill” is one of the Ten Commandments and this applies to you too.  From the perspective of oneness, we are all part of the one mind so what we choose to do will have ramifications for everyone on the planet and beyond. 

Everyone you meet is your mirror, so what you do to them is the same as doing it to yourself.  If you were to shoot someone dead, then in effect or metaphorically speaking you have just killed yourself.  This works in reverse as well.  If you were to shoot yourself dead, then you have just killed your neighbor. 

Love works this way too, so if you love yourself in effect you are loving the world.  If you love another person it is a way of loving “The One”, yourself.  This concept is so powerful and once embraced will change your life forever! 

Oneness can be and should be applied to every aspect of your life.  It is what we all desire more than anything else in the world, a feeling of being connected!  Most of us call this connection “Love”.  So the next time you say you hate someone or something, stop for a minute and contemplate the deeper meaning of this statement.  To hate anyone or anything is to hate the self, The One. 

The Buddhists teach this concept very well in their belief that harming even a fly or ant on the sidewalk is harming the one.  The dynamics of life are far beyond our comprehension at this point, but rest assured that everything, rock, plant, insect, animal and person is connected in a Divine fashion.  Our being conscious of this connection gives us the power to change the course of life on earth!

Suicide – Not A Choice

Transition can get to be overwhelming at times which can lead a person to look for an escape.  The pain gets too great and the options get too few, so what’s a person to do?  Suicide thoughts creep in and suddenly thoughts of death (escape) become overwhelming.  It seems so easy, a few too many pills or the slice of a knife in the right spot or one pull of a trigger. 

Let me assure you there is nothing to escape from.  Suicide is not the answer you seek.  What I will tell you is that those feelings are stemming from isolation and fear.  There are always options!  In some strange way, feeling like suicide is actually an option can be comforting.  Just keep it as option “Z”.  I like to list my options for remedying my situation from A to Z, which gives me 26 options to choose from and reaching option “Z” is very unlikely.  Just knowing that you have that many options is comforting.

Talk to someone who can relate to your situation.  Share your thoughts and feelings with someone who cares.  Ask for other options that maybe you cannot see.  If for some reason you cannot find someone who cares, which is not unusual in this situation, talk to God, Holy Spirit, Allah, Buddha, Great Spirit, Goddess, or whichever Deity you relate to.  By sharing your troubles the burden you feel is lifted. 

Shifting your viewpoint will help you move beyond your feelings of hopelessness.  Embrace whatever change is knocking at your door.  Welcome it in and see how you can best participate in this transition.  An “I can” attitude or “I can, with help” attitude will go a long way to moving you beyond the depressive state you are in.  Allowing others to help you is part of the give and receive cycle that life runs on, when we withdraw from this cycle our life stops flowing and depression sets in.  Getting back into the flow of giving and receiving will help to alleviate any thoughts of suicide. 

When other people’s happiness becomes more important than your own the dark veil of depression will lift and the light of Joy will re-visit your life.  Caring about others in a healthy balanced way every day will assure that suicide thoughts never visit you again. 

Something that I realized when I was holding the barrel of a 357 in my mouth many years ago, I am being very selfish!  I am not hurting myself, instead I am hurting those I Love and those who Love me.  I could see them crying and I could feel the pain I would have brought into this world.  I asked myself, do I want to be the problem or the cure?  In that instant healing began and I put down the gun never to return to that point again. 

If those thoughts of suicide return and they have, all I do is remind myself that there are people who love me and hurting them is not the kind of person I choose to be.  I am alive because I have a gift to share with the world and when my time comes I will gladly go. 

“Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t.”
Richard Bach
