Q

Chanting Love & Livin on the Edge of Life itself

a life with no more real strife i do so pray this fine day!

READERS WARNING! LoL 🙂 Frum transcendence to variables in perceptions: a very LONG READ FOLLOWS! hopefully i gots all da typoes fixed so this is readable thanQ fer reading 🙂

WHY I WILL BLOG til the end of the internet!…..if’n i live that long an if not till da’ end of Me 🙂 ..if there ever is one!….
IT’S ALL BOUT VaRiAbLeS ya see..

dualism-by-evenz…..and things that change!…like sumtimes ones mind.

AND IT IS BOUT CHOICES ALSO –

I CHOOSE INTERNET for my link to da werld.

i sure hope not actually, i do not receive tv reception in my area and the internet is cheaper than anything for my media and entertainment purposes. And it is geeeeorge Jetson style for me to be able to have a messenger:) very kewl. When i was a child there were no such things in life. Jest black and white TV’s if ya were lucky enuff to own one. The days when it was every American dream to have a ford or chevy parked in the front yard a tv at home a wife that loved ya and kids also, a German Shepard or lab, terrier if ya like feisty animals, a fonzy style motorcycle in the garage, a boat in tha backyard, maybe a swimming pool too!…. lol….stable finances, stable folks to hang out with etc etc.  Those were the days, but the days have changed quite a bit.

A MAJORITY: ABOUT MONEY SAD TO SAY MONEY   some moral some immoral!?:()

Things jest aren’t spit out to the majority but  few on a silver platter these days, as a result of more people being around there is less of some things, more for others…the gap keeps getting exceedingly wider between all classes in every country. would be nice i think if everyone could only grow to be so big so powerful and so rich and that was the limit!….ya couldnt get any richer . and if ya wanted to all the excess capital gained would go to any charity fund u wanted, but you could not own it! cuz one person only needs so much based on the economy to live a life of luxury whence u get to that level of being rich anyhow.

TIME

     If one can find the time life becomes more than jest some rhyme er fairy tale ya see, I a guarantee ya ya haven’t see nutin’~~~ yet compared to what has beeen before sometimes and sometimes what will be after…but nevertheless I see a lot of life is bout taking chances, cuz ya might not get another chance er go round wiith the same offering that you might have been given on a silver platter!
    When it is a offering of love i’d say don’t give it up to the powers that wish to take it away too easily, if u are forced to try and to do it very gracefully. Don’t need to make it any harder on the person that is making it hard on u ….cuzz well if ur relationship is a 2 way street Patience will be a geat asset here! in these kinna situations also, the kinna situation where you have to choose between right and wrong! …of spirit or not of spirit? which is it i must ask mysel before taking every next best move or motion i take in life…..

THE BRAIN OF A SHAMAN! THE OTHER SIDE OF LIFE –
– NOT TOO COMPLEX
for most to fathom.

..hope this blog won’t bore you because it will be very long i am warning you, so go get a cupa coffe sit down shut up and read, it might be werth ur while if u are a voyager like me.

THIS BLOG WILL GO DOWN SUMWHERE HERE IN
Q’s BEWK OFLIFE –
A LIFE OF A DIFFERENT SORT!

FRum urs truly the transcendent Q lol…..one of several books i plan on offering to a publisher next year is my 2015-6 goal…well one of many. Damn so many wishes dreams and goals and only so much time and money to get em all done… .i’ll have to leave some certain things for desires i wish to have in my next life also!… That comes to a blog bout finding each other i am werking on on the side…soon to come: When u multi task life like i do ya might find and if ya like to have to not only keep an open mind nd be around clearly of ur surroundings cuz u are aware that u live in more than one Werld at once {believe it er not}

dualism-criticalthinkingsometimes i wunder if i can ever keep up with the mind that thinks up the stuff i write on the net, a lot of my stuff is spontaneously written in the middle of the night in the wee hours cuz i become nocturnal squirrel , grabbin some nuts er sumpin ….woke thinking bout sumpin’ er what not either way or a late night out…i do my best thinking after i have been awake bout 30 hours but i have hard time staying away. Something clicks about then in the brain fer some reason, some levels of something change after being awake 30 hours, not sure what it is but i am addicted to it being an addict have been addicted to this trance state of mind for several years because of the valuable benefits it has brought my life and brain!……Besides clicking lol….i of course become very tired……but inthat relaxed state of staying awake and alert the consciousness slips into a kind of trance state i would call it ……i have maintained up to 70 hours plus without the help of alcohol or any chemical drugs…….after 3 sun-ups and sunsets of being awake. Dennis weir i believe his name is wrte a bewk about trance tecknology that i really enjoyed. about transcendence through finding the trance stae somehow. There are many ways to do it…even wrong ways that could make one violent…like alcoholism, or drugs. But this blog is not bout alcohol or drugs to attain that state….There are some very pleasant ways also if ur in the state of mind to attain the same trance state…..ie the spores one can eat and also have an extended 2 day awake over and over sexual encounter…tantric sex foor 2 days would prolly be lethal for an old man like me hehe…go at it slowly if ur an ol guy hehe.
     Extended periods of continued consciousness without to much negative or positive input for a couple of days is very health and puts you in this very state of mind if ya can allow it to….some can play solitaire over and over fer like an hour er 2 a switch clicks in thier brain and they realizing they are playing a game and thinking a string of thoughts all along . Doing 2 separate things at the same time….maybe even eating dinner on the side subconsciously

WATCHING YOUR THOUGHTS!.
    I used to achieve this state of repetion like 2 sides of reality a lot i found doing different types of jobs over the years. Sanding Cars for hours and hours upon a time, Monotony i found when in high skewl was great for the mind…over and over and over the same thing over and over would do the trick and put me inthat state of mind whatever it was. It would wander i found and think bout other things consciously as if in school…could even have visuals put to it also…all while i was a sanding a car. was a trip. could watch a movie in ur mind and do something else at the same time!  sometime when and after achieving that stae of mind ya find ya can be there for days. Consciously aware that there is a second consciousness and maybe more werking within ur brain all at  the ame time playing out this so called movie of life in ur brain, all different for everyone cuz every life story is not the same. And over the years through different forms of repetition we develop and create the life and lifestyle with which we choose to live. Cuz it is all bout choices ya see. Not a random number generator are we. Not so specific, we as humans have variables we can change therefore learning to grow, instead of fail in our life or loves mission! live. Taping up printed circuit board is very monotonous and when ya get good at somnething that is monotonous and repetitive ..after doing it for extended periods of time if u are AWARE you will see and hear this movie playing 24/7 in ur brain:)…a healthy brain is a healthy movie!A simultaneous movie…kinna like being able to write 2 blogs at the same time the same night on 2 different subjekts and kinna make em one…i find myself doing that a lot. cuz one topic leads to another to another. So be it!..Make it so! I SAY! Flip back and forth, pick whichever one ya finish first and park the second fer laters, try to blog and share as much as possible is a s good for the soldier and soul  within a lot….to let steam off or light up or darkness out whatever it is jest get rid of it and go on with life. So back to the subjekt flippin back an forth here i am got to stay focused and to the point!…. trancendence through repetition: thats what i was talkin’ bout. An artist that does line drawings like a zillion lines or dots to make one picture theyare drawing they will find themselves transcenc=ding and doing this also. I used to get it a lot when having earmuffs on standing on top of a rock crusher for 12 hours a day all through the summer months. I’d be watching a private movie in me brain, a fantasy, or a dream, or thoughts prevalent even thoughts that would arouse or sadden the emotion , thinking of the gurl the night before, er the day before when ya went flying , thought keep a whizzin’ thorough the brain,all while crushing rocks all day long. Eat sugar for days too much of it will give ya the same effect very neurotically, is why i believe many sugar addict become addicted they feel it but don’t know aht it is …every time they do more they get closer but not quite is a very illusive product folks, cuz it won’t GET YA THERE! it will JEST MAKE U FAT AND NEUROTIC! almost as bad as alcohol.
     Many books over the years have been written bout this separate reality, one of the first that got me into it when i was a child i read Carlos Castanadas book ” A SEPARATE REALITY”.

 HOW DO I GET THERE FROM HERE and DO I WISH TO?
that was back in the days of sanding cars jest learning how to get some wits bout myself and have a life of my own after moving out of ny child hood home. Soon after that even without the use of drugs i became exceedingly aware that there was more to life than jest this body. If not well then i was becming delusional. But only to comne to realize that what was happening on the other side of silence and repetition was this thing called the brain, it was a RECEPTOR FOR THIS THING CALLED THE MIND!,,{believe it er not}….We need to do a couple a few things if we need to evolve from this stage of jest mastering seeing ur thoughts or hearing ur own music so to speak! First after sittin down or whatevr ur doing over and over…once ya start seeing ur thought  TRY THE EXPERIMENT: see if something u produce in ur mind as a thought first can become a reality for u? then after that question ya might ask yourself:? how do i do that..isn’t that called manifesting? only magicians can manifest things and that aint real anyhow so why should i try one might ask? But whatif ya could manifest things in ur mind? what then …how would you lewk at and treat ur life? is a whole another blog, or chapter{mark}….ya ask like turn water into wine? like that…precisely little grasshopper says the master! My point is that when ya think things they can become things in many ways depending upon the power of mind u have been granted or received in life naturally. My other point is, that in this we are one theory of life there are tiny fibers that connect you to yur universe.{believe it er not}…..the planet and the whole of cosmos is also connected with the same fibers; I call these the fibers of life. Dogs know why don’t humans i wunder sumtimes…bout this telepathy…don’t exactly know but i believe they speak their masters language and are as smart as their training. If ur married and at home and have a wife at home try this experiment:) jest a iddy biddy weird one:
     When ur ready to leave after doing the last thing in town even if ya live 30 minutes away …..right before u are getting ready to leave…pulll over to the side of the road …VISUALIZE UR DOG…..and say with him clearlyin ur mind:) especially if ya know right where he is,,,,zoom in on that setting in ur mind and say! ‘”hay rover buddy i am on my way home bringin ya a treat!” AND always remember to be honest and bring what ya promise home! do this daily onur wayhome no matter what time u leave to go back home. don’t let ur wife tip ff the dog either bya phone call! “play fair!”
     anyhow every day now at the time u leave do this repetitiously and have ur wife on the other end notice if there is sumpthing strange bout the dog by herside:) bout the time u make this announcement! privitely to the dog with visualization and vocally into the thin air of space…anounce a outlod …”OK ROVER HERE I COME home…MAY B Q FEW TIMNES TO REINFORCE IT:) THEN THINK OF UR FER A FEW WHERE HE MIGHT BE ER WHAT AND HOPE HE GETS THE MESSAGE{best onE can do}……….lol…..now what i’d like to hear from ONE ER MORE OF of ya that try S thiS experiment that it werks:)….you may find if u have a strong connection to ur dog and are insync, well that jest when u announce it ur dog will be going to the front door and get all excited till ya do arrive home! Yes folks another{believe it er not} TAKE CLEAR RESPONSIBILITY EVERY NIGHT WITH CLEAR INTENTION – while doing this. Lo k for the truth in what happens after lotsa repetition!  Like repeating a phrase er verse over and over like the chanting shaman! When u arrive home appreciate ur dog for listening and thank him for knowing! and give him his treat!….Honestly extend compassion to his soul for all u know he does really know…..and that is how to communicate telepathically with their werld and environment the best they can recieve and resonate 2 factors to blog on also another time 🙂

Property-dualism.

VIBRATING IN THE NOW AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! –
WILL GET YA THERE – NOT UR DREAMING ! or fantasies, or delusional streams of fear thought bout WHAT IF”S?
some get there by jest being who they are…living in between the good the bad and the ugly
taking the bst and leaving the rest:)………

DIFFERENT KINSA THOUGHTS THAT CREATE / MANIFEST DIFFERENT REALITIES QUANTUMLY

dualism-by-evenznote: VOTE yes NO-DUALISM – vote no! on dualistic behavior…puting every thing in one box….is not the way it is or was ever intendd to be.
vote yes on non-dualistic thinking foks, and  well what that means to a guy like me is that there are always 2 ways to lewk at things, not absolute is all , not all is absolute, all is what it is,is exact and right ya see. There is good fear bad fear!…there is no set and dry boundaries for which side ya lifve in and for how long…fact remains u have a choice and it is now to choose to make the best next decision ya can bouyt anything ur gonna do in ur life today or tommorrow…ull have a better of chance if ya use ur fear wisely…and live ur love largely for the truyth that unfolds in love in in explainable,,,, FOR LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDS FOR WHAT IT IS.
I say to myself to try to be the cleanest example of what i know myself to be, all other aspects will show there light when the time is right!

LOOK FOR THIS LIGHT THAT YA FIND WHEN YA CONNECT….THE LIGHT THAT IS NOn-DUALISTIC! – BUT ALTHOUGH THIS LIGHT MIGHT COME AND GO KNOW THE LIGHT IS THERE, NEVER THE LESS , JEST LIKE THE SUN BEHINDS’T THE CLOUDS. cHOOSING THE BEST HING TO DO WEATHER FEAR BASED OR LOVE BASED ALTHOUGH DOES HAVE TO BE BASED ON TRUTH! IF not all things can go outa whack!, got to be careful bout what ya think ya know , cuz what happens to me is i then am shown i don’t know jack – nor chit…oh well…so one has to learn to focus right ….Take the best and leave the rest out of all things that ya come across in life:)
PS: S:

Yes folks, THOUGHTS  ARE THINGS…..NOT QUITE LIKE concrete though even though they can go right through concrete {believe it er not}

will pick this up where i left off with a few more chapters…. as to not put to many chapters into one train of thought!

so; Train of thought for the day…..& tomorrow…..LOVE & FORGIVENESS!
& moral support for love!

have a great day everyone ………………………Q

DUALISTIC THINKING
Typical dualistic thinking which will always bring highs and lows and depend on external circumstances…Money will not make you happy for starter will tell ya why in a bit. or someday lt’z…a big subjekt it is….Dualistic thinking is based on separation…an no real truth!
To separate and visualise which reality is which goes back to lewking at ur self and ur own mind and watching ur thoughTs!.an actions or LACK OF actions as a pure result:)………..keeping these 2 realms separate and not joining them in th e ying/yang theory well, then ya have to pick one side or the other,…..
THE MASTER OF HIS OR HER MIND IS ONE WHO CAN SEE BOTH SIDE JEST FIND , Mainly FOCUS ON THE LO v E SIDE ❤ …and use fear for what is best self protection an s self preservation…not to be the cause of no action or ignorance in or of life…..
…Be aware see it all…that is okay…werk from the right side though , do what is best out of love, and leave the rest…………more to come!

Descartes-mind-and-bodyRemovin’ the lines of time that are embedded when we remove da mask and see who and what life is…..is sometime a hard reality, removing that linbe left on th edge of reality on the edge of the cliff!:)

see when the positive charges hit the negative charges here …..lightning the season of the year here:) see if i can catch some lightning this year! on FILM<

to be continued:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

psss: riding the lightning and clouds of fury the furious little  hummers are still here!

NAMASTE’

love & light to all!

Image

,an tonight well……JEST WHAT IF COLORS REALLY DID HAVE THOUGHTS WELL, WHAT THEN…decided to talk to the lonely dead tree that hadn’t really heard from a real soul cept birdz in yearz….

~~~~~~~~WELL ANOTHER QUARKED STORY BELOW!~~~~~~~~~~~~

“believe it er not”

***********

Once upon a time the Colors of the world started to quarrel
***********
that they were: all claimed the best
**********************
the most important, the most useful, the favorite

.***.

 

GREEN said “Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and of hope. I was chosen for grass, trees, leaves – without me, all animals would die. Look over the countryside and you will see that I am in the majority.”

*
BLUE interrupted: “You only think about the earth, but consider the sky and the sea. It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Without my peace, you would all be nothing.”

*
YELLOW chuckled “You are all so serious. I bring laughter, gaiety, and warmth into the world. The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow, the stars are yellow. Every time you look at a sunflower, the whole world starts to smile. Without me there would be no fun.”

*
ORANGE started next started next to blow her trumpet: “I am the color of health and strength. I may be scarce, but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life. I carry the most important vitamins. Think of carrots, pumpkins, oranges, mangoes, and pawpaws. I don’t hang around all the time, but when I fill sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you.”

*
RED could stand it no longer He shouted out: “I am the ruler of all of you- I am blood – life’s blood! I am the color of danger and of bravery. I am willing to fight for a cause. I bring fire into the blood. Without me, the earth would be as empty as the moon. I am the color of passion and of love, the red rose, the poinsettia and the poppy.”

*
PURPLE rose up to his full height. He was very tall and spoke with great pomp: “I am the color of royalty and power. Kings, cheifs, and bishops have always chosen me for I am the sign of authority and wisdom.

People do not question me – they listen and obey.”

*
Finally,

*
INDIGO spoke, much more quietly than all the others, but with just as much determination: “Think of me. I am the color of silence. You hardly notice me, but without me you all become superficial. I represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep water. You need me for balance and contrast, for prayer and inner peace.”

*
And so the colors went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own superiority. Their quarreling became louder and louder. Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightening – thunder rolled and boomed.

Image

Rain started to pour down relentlessly The colors crouched down in fear, drawing close to one another for comfort.

Image
In the midst of the clamor,rain began to speak: YOU FOOLISH COLORZ U! ; fighting amongst yourselves, each trying to dominate the rest. Don’t you know that you were each made for a special purpose, unique and different?

Join hands with one another and come to me.

” Doing as they were told, the colors united and joined hands.

*************

The rain continued: “From now on, when it rains, each of you will stretch across the sky in a great bow of color as a reminder that you can all live in peace.

“The rainbow is a sign of hope for tomorrow”

*And so, whenever a good rain washes the world, and a rainbow appears in the sky, let us remember to appreciate one another * 🙂

*******************************

so watch-it and appreciate more 🙂

Which Way Challenge

100913 b&W (11)Event Type: Photography & Visual Arts

Start Date: Wednesday, recurring every two weeks

Description: A photo challenge that runs every other week. “Which Way” is a term taken from a photo group, which I hosted a few years ago. The idea behind this challenge is to show roads, bridges, walkways, stairs/steps, railtracks. I also allow signs of any nature. Keeping an eye out for different Which Ways gives me a new way of looking at how we move around and what wonderful ways we have found ways to travel as well as beautify our world. The possibilities are endless.

Here is a list of possible subjects for you to keep in mind as you are out on photo shoots.

  • Roads (gravel, asphalt, cobbled, dirt), Freeway, Expressway, Highway, Bridges
  • Sidewalks, Indoor Walkways (hallways, aisles, people movers, breezeway), Paths (walking, bicycling), Elevators
  • Stairs, Escalators, or Steps: indoors, outdoors
  • Trails, Railway Tracks, Runways
  • Signs of any kind (directional, informational, store front), Maps that are posted as signs
  • Parking lots, Private driveways, Tunnels
  • Any photo taken from your windshield or within your vehicle or public transportation

Description: Hello, Bonjour, Hola, Mabuhay!

Here in The Mixed Culture our mission is to share interesting things about different cultures, inspire others to see, experience & appreciate the uniqueness of other cultures…to go beyond culture. We are inviting you to join us by sharing us your thoughts through photography that depict culture. It can be about your own culture, from the country you’re currently living in, the “pop culture” or your own interpretation of culture. Show us things that you think will help us to understand a culture different from our own. Or, guide us through your photos to some of the amazing places that only locals know about, food worth trying when someone is visiting a new place, traditions to know about in a country….anything you would like us to know about your culture.

So, here’s how we roll:

1. Every Saturday we’ll give a theme for the week. You take photographs according to your interpretation of the theme of the week to showcase your (a) culture. Then, make a new post anytime during the week before the following Saturday.

2. Name your post “Culture Weekly Capture: (theme of the week)” so we can check-out your photos. Write something about the photo (to understand how is it related to your culture) and use the tag “culture weekly capture”. You can also link, Trackback or pingback us so we can hop in to your post.

3. Finally, don’t forget to follow us The Mixed Culture to get the latest weekly theme, and subscribe to our posts via e-mail.

We hope to see your culture through your photographs…Go and Happy Culture Capturing. 🙂

Like It or Loathe It

lioli1Event Type: General Blogging

Start Date: Monday, recurring monthly

Description: This will be a monthly event. The theme is likes and dislikes.

On the first Monday of every month for Aussies – the first Sunday for most of the rest of you – I’ll post the specific like/dislike topic; so the first notice will be on the 3rd February for Oz, and the 2nd for practically everyone else.

Tour response/s can be either your like or your dislike of the subject or, in some cases, both; and you must also provide your reasons – although where you post photographs, that may not be necessary … Briefly: unless your motivation/s can be easily identified from your photo/s, write them as well.

Create your ‘Like it or Loathe it’ event post, and remember to include the event tag – lioli. Then add the link to your post in the Comments. To make it easy for others checking entries, title your blog post ‘Like it or Loathe it’ and the number.

You can enter at any time throughout the month, of course; and there will be an award for the entry adjudged best. The rating system is being trialled, here: no voting for your own (is that possible?) – and we’ll see if people respond. If not, I shall be the judge!

The Like it or Loathe it badge is provided on my site: you may upload it to your site if you are so inclined, but there is no demand for you to do so.

seal-vii-hires-whitebgEvent Type: Fiction & Flash FIction, Poetry, Photography, General Blogging

Start Date: Ongoing

Description: Every week We Drink Because We’re Post hosts a poetry prompt (Mondays), Photography/Poetry Prompt (Tuesdays), short story prompt (Wednesdays) as well as hosting a once monthly seven day story challenge. There are no real rules beyond being respectful when critiquing and avoiding trolling at all times. Our expectation: to be able to find your post so we can include you in the results posts each week, whether you pingback to our prompt posts, answer the prompt in the comments section, or use one of our tags (which will be included in the prompt).

Our motivation is simple: we thrive on sharing and casting the spotlight on artists. Why? Because we’re artists, too, and each of us has a healthy respect for how challenging it is to develop one’s skills as an artist as well as make a name for one’s self.

Basically, we’ve been there or we are there, and it never hurts to share and promote artists besides ourselves.

My Weigh To Lose: Monthly Challenge

title-mw2lTopic: Health / Weight Loss

Start Date: The first day of each month, recurring monthly

Description:  Monthly challenges created to promote health, fitness, weight-loss and everything in between. There are many people out there that need the support and motivation. These challenges are to help those people out and to create a tight group of support from all over the world.

When working on change, we tend to believe that we are alone. You aren’t alone and a lot of us would like to be a better version of ourselves.

Each month, there will be a total of 6 posts initiated. For example:

First month asks the questions:

1.What are your fitness/health/weightloss goals?

2.Why would you like to achieve these goals?

3.Describe your level of fitness activity

4.Describe what types of food you like

5.Write a post about your current stats

6.Why is fitness/health/weightloss important to you?

Each question should be a separate post (I don’t want to see one post with everything thrown in there because I want people to take some actual thought in their answers. Plus it will make the readers keep up and not have too much thrown at us!).

Each Post should have a link (or use the widget) that links to the My Weigh To Lose Challenge page.

Prizes may be handed out once in a while to a few dedicated bloggers (prizes will be raffled based on who posted each month). So make sure to post for each question and link to the page or you wont be placed in the raffle!

All posts should be written within 4 weeks of each other if it’s a monthly challenge. You should not do 2 months of Challenges in 1 month. The challenge is designed to create life style change based on your goals, so don’t rush it all at once!

Nancy Merril A Photo a Week Challenge

Nancy Merrill Photography – A Photo a Week Challenge Our world is a maze of shapes, colors, and images. Without any one of them, it wouldn’t be nearly as fascinating to look at and photograph. This week is all about stripes: stripes in nature, buildings, clothing, anything. What’s the most unusual place you’ve found stripes? This tulip is one of my favorites. It was in a bed with other beautiful tulips and flowers, but this is the one that really caught my eye.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT ARE STRIPES OF SOME KIND.

Have fun experimenting with finding stripes all around you.  Then blog your finds and post a link to your masterpieces here.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

P.S. Be sure to enter the giveaway! Seriously easy contest.

Intuitive  Knowing ness in truth and well, the things that were assimilated by the design of god for our own personal entertainment it eh in the end of some things,well,truly amazes me, it really does!… like the old saying, when the going gets rough well , the rough get going!..makes me want to go shave lol…my ruff mc gruff here..oh well, anyhow intuition is something inside deep inside not designed by me , but what i like to call god..we each have our own version, and believe me i am not it! god that is and neither are u but we sure come close , an well, what i mean by that is god inside,,not call found from out there but inside is our pureness of an intuitive heart, The father knows best or a mother knows best kinda ? whats the next best right thing do do Q huh thing!
so,, well, based on our MISS-PERCEPTIONS or INTUITIVE god inspired DIRECTION or the EGO’s Direction, which usually attempts to override all and become that which Edges God OUt ..in the end,,to only change reality again..for the better or for the werse,depending!..so the new intuitive forces can again flow and life can become somewhat more fluent because we can focus on the next best thing to do at any moment to get to the end goal or destination as we create it!,,which can again , change at anytime as a result of our choices ? for correct use of right will an intuition or the egos use of it, any way it all werks out.

Believe it er not says da Q
being able to understand not only the words that you hear but also other things such as emotions could be a result of your ability to tap into the wellspring of data from your intuition. Letting your intuition guide you with greater certainty …may make it easier for you to hone this ability and to really get what others are saying…part of intuitive knowing is well, when…
As you interact or listen to other people, for example, you might take a few minute to notice the air around them, using your energetic senses to ‘see’ how the aura or vibe feels around them….and even the sense of feeling of lightness of our own being and aura, if we can sense it is applicable here also to listen very clearly and closely as to what the design of life wants for us rather than our personal EGO!..Mind verses brain!..Although you may not visualize at first anything physically, you could find that your sixth sense can pick up additional information energetically. If one asks one receives an answer, What I do know is very strange, but true, because i have a mind i feel is clear and unpolluted of the negative and a mind that lives in love based decisions instead of fear based ones, and running away, well after year of integral werk , i have come to the conclusion, that well, wants and needs are very different than one another ,,,so clearly i have to recognize the most needs come from the mind and most wants come frum the ego….to find balance and harmony and truth in the mix mash of jumbled information the brain stores and the universal mind senses and sends us every second is auctually un-fathomable for most human beings the way i see , it “stuck in their game of life” evryones very different no matter what it is!.ya see:)………..
Our intuition is a powerful tool for telling us what is happening on an audible vibration level… personally i call this ever changing tonal …….the voice of GOD! in my universal forcefield i carry……..cosmeticallyt, energetically and etherically and spiritually! in this carbon form i am inhabiting called this body…
Good intuition started for me as very claravoyantly as it may be once upon a time , when i saw into my days of future and past like all at once.once upon a time and well , from that time on seems like i jest know what the next best correct Love based decision i should take is,…..or should i react in fear and flee…????? well,,,,,Intuition can answer that many times, always though the mind can with time .an a bit of relaxation , even if the circumstances require full attention, is a livin’ dichitomy but can be done cuz i do it all the time whence on long drives or flying my plane or riding my cycle,,,is bout being in the Now and sensing the Next moment and reacting to it before it happens a kind of esp that flows through the human circuitry believe it er not!…yes we can see into the future,,if ya can imagine what i jest parralled and said to u!……not speaking vertically here or with ego but out of passion for love and truth i am…that well horizontally! in a matter of speaking it all interconnects in a massive gigantic puzzzle like weird way, is how we chose to put the puzzle together that counts a lot as far as i am concerned , and wheter we do it using the force of love or the force of fear as the guiding light,,both are tools to be used when used corr3ectly and wisely and right,.It is our choice which to choose,,,we only have one of the 2 choices for all thingz the way i see it!.

     Recognizing that you have the capacity to notice the energetic nature of others will make it easier for you to understand what your intuitive senses are telling you at any given time……….so all i can say more concerning this right now is in my mind Intuition is to bring all things into full awareness with love! into heart and mind and brain ,,an good things shall follow, beware of ur fear based decisions ya might call Love based when really it is all a disguise for fear to hide behind another mask, as the great deceiver and demon it is in their mind,,,,,,and its mission.believe me is always to Destroy the next task…..so beware Ego or Mind – Love er Fear ur Choice of how ya wish to Percieve OR mispercieve “reality” as it is thrown at ya by the higher order of thingz each, an evrey day.
Ok, over an out from Q this fine eve stay warm and get through the rest of summer if’n ur on that side of the planet and prepare for winter, and if ur on this side of the planet , prepare for the glorious warmth of spring, into the summer and right to fall this year!….Peace Out …….Frum a half backed half lived intuitive  person with a mind and half a brain,,,sure hope its the correct half? whatever that is.LOl.   ok over and out frum da’ Q
PS: a realization a day keeps the doctor away i say….an/or a good nap sumtimes…..:) Stay Positive and don’t let the MISS=Percievers !~ get ya down!….even if the brain gets ya under, stop , fer a sec , be no sound, and let the werld of belief that creates become the who u are! Now

Intuitiveness_and_Will
~ Pendulums ~ Crystals and Amulets ~
Toolsz of the devil!
I should say not…..is all a matter of what is!
based upon perception….jest as Nooogenesis is!~
the keen perceptual abilitys deep within all of us are key ingrediants
to finding out who we are?:)
Who are we?…the question from long ago that still supercedes all
questions mankind asks about life today!… today?:)!
where does intuition come from and why?
*************************************
This is being typed on the forefront
without any previous thoughts except for the theory or grand conceptual point I wish to
make with this blog….
~~~~~~
The Use of Ur own Keen Perceptual abilities are very keen and right at the fingertips of everything that u do….
~~~~~~~~~
The INTUIT is the one whom knows INTUITIVELY whether or not any
specific this or that is being done is the WILL!…
~~~~
Ya say the Will of what! ~
~~~~~
Well I say the “RIGHT WILL” ~
*******
They say where there is a will there is a way…I do so agree that if the will exhuberated and acted upon was the wrong will?
*****
what whould happen then?
I say to all those that think they are infallable,
and the ones who think that they always make the right choice,,,”because there is no difference” they say.???
..between right and wrong” WTF
???????
jest what do they think they are basing the illusion on?
Symptoms Or Illness ?
or symptoms to the discovery of the truth? which is it?
How u choose of course is ur own choice!,
whether or not ya choose what is right?{ the correct thing to do} is
a matter of intuition and Intelligence….
and finally choice.
Some Say Ignorance is an excuse and some say not!
….another u decide one fer me……
some say they will jest stay put and not make a decision!….
blinding themselves to the fact that to decide to make no decision at all is the werst fall of all!..
for ya still made a decision…
~~~~~~~
the decision “not to decide”
**********
a very devastating and stagnating one for many…..
**************************************
Back to the Right and wrong thing!,,,,
people keep telling me theres no difference! Bah humbug
********
in one sense there isn’t and another there is
life is like a living dichitomy!
I say….because if they are such a great healer and so omni-powerful…
and there was really no difference in right and wrong,
then they could quite possibly pick up this bottle of Acid
and drink it…
*********
Wouldn’t be a problem at all for a person like that right….
LOL…..!!
Wrong…….!!!!
I am told that whenever I Declare sumthin’ as wrong?!
that I am being Negative! and should not do that!….
and I am manifesting a negative reality….
****
well not in all cases…is what I am
attempting to get at here….
******
I can say ” I DECLARE THIS ACID AS DANGEROUS!”
“DO NOT DRINK”
…..and that negative becomes a positive force!
….to keep ya safe from harm.
Natures safer way to Heal the un-intelligent
is to jest give em Intuition….!
The Intuitive mind and the questioning thinker are always the ones that ending up protecting the others…
whom are the others? welp, they are the others whom are ignorant, cuz they are blinded, not by the light but by the lack of knowledge they are sent by the media….and the mis-construed knowledge they are asked to lay upon the masses to get them to react in a certain way, ussually preying upon the fear of the indivuiduals to be what makes theinstant decision to drink the acid for a change?
….not knowing that drinking it will be instant death….
for thier body!…..
Anyone get the drift of what I am attempting to say here!?…..
right vs wrong and yes vs no?
some believe in truth verses lies
some believe in fact verses fallacy?
all based upon
putting out to recieve the answer they desire
and the way they wish to see it
correct or not!
it is
all a matter of perception!
&
finally a matter
of ur choice!

as Transcendence is also a choice or not!

About Shpongle

Image

Dongle and Mongle are the only two other words rhyming with Shpongle…a strange hybrid of electronic manipulation and shamanic midgets with frozen digits squeezing the envelope and crawling through the doors of perception, find a new pair of dice…extra numbers and colours an infinite expanding bubble, filled with a bizzare, strange world of dripping halucinatory wallpaper, a garden of earthly delights………..Shpongleland…..a place of well being, and reflective surfaces, morphing like an Anacondas skin and shimmering like a million colour changing squid, at fifty fathoms.. truly unfathomable like seperating water from it’s wetness, the Ineffable Mysteries unweave …..

Q

Frum Wikipedia > Shpongle is an English psychedelic music project formed in 1996. The group includes Simon Posford (aka Hallucinogen) and Raja Ram (one third of The Infinity Project). The duo are considered to be one of the progenitors of the psybient genre – a genre combining world music with psychedelic trance and ambient. Their musical style combines traditional music from all over the globe and vocals with contemporary western synthesizer-based psychedelic music. When asked to describe Shpongle’s music, Posford has responded that it is “like nothing you’ve ever heard before
