"Knowledge is an achievement sublime.

A learning experience, one day at a time.

Knowledge is power...even if we

choose not to use it, imperatively.

From the day we are born,

we are blessed with the right

to study our world, to give our minds flight.

To hunger for more, to expand our potential.

Knowledge is something truly essential.

Answers to questions the mind can impart,

nurtures the hunger for knowledge, to start

the process of learning, the beginning of growth,

a personal quest and a personal oath,

to become the very best one can be.

Yes, that is the road I have chosen for me!

It's all up to us...that desire to learn.

An impression within our hearts, it should burn,

and daily, the blessings, upon us will shower.

Always hold to the truth,

that...Knowledge Is Power!"

I just got back from a trip to a very special camp in Maine where I go every summer for retreat/personal growth/dance classes...This was the last year the camp will be held there, and I am sad about that. For my last sunset over the lake there, I wanted to put a little more feeling than a straight shot could get, so I created this impressionist image by using a long exposure and moving the camera. I'd been dancing a lot at the camp, so moving the camera felt appropriate!

Native to volcanic soils of the Oregon Badlands, old growth junipers steadfastly remind us of the old ways. Elder shadows dating back a millennium, keep watch over ancient windblown volcanic ash, each grain comprising of human history.

Whether this is corn on the cob or wheat, it probably links with a harvest, a reward from work done. It also suggests fertility, nourishment and a sense of fullness. In some dreams it may represent sustenance or strength in times of need or trial. Occasionally wordplay for corny.

 

The seeds of corn also have the power of life and growth in them unless they have been processed, as happens with white rice and white flour, which is thus rendered ‘dead’. They can thus indicate your potential for personal growth, but this usually links with a power within yourself, the power of Life itself, that has the ability to move you and unfold your potential. This inner activity links your independent life with the whole.

A big part of my day job is to bring other creative folks along.

to guide them. nurture them. inspire them.

to help them grow.

 

today was not a good day.

hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Oh look, it's tomorrow already.

Need sleep

Nah...Sleep is overrated.

Need bourbon.

The older I get the more I appreciate spring. I get such pleasure watching the new growth of the trees, reminding me of my personal growth and that of my family.

Day 365!!!! (05.31.2011)

 

Come one...you know you want to sing it...“Life is just a bowl of cherries, don't take it serious, it's mysterious. Life is just a bowl of cherries, so live and laugh and laugh at love, love a laugh, laugh and love.”

 

I've really loved doing this 365 project. Not only did it make me reach and try new things, it really helped me open my eyes and see the world in a whole new way. During this past year I've experienced a lot of personal growth (both physically...grrr...and emotionally). I've had some fantastic moments as well as some that felt like my heart was being ripped out. During all of these, it was really nice to be able to "run away" with my camera and almost decompress while trying to figure it all out. Maybe cheaper than a shrink, who knows? But I've really enjoyed it and I thank everyone who gave me encouragement and advice along the way.

 

Will I do another 365? Soon...I think...but for now I'm not going to take it so seriously and just enjoy taking a photo now and again when the whimsy hits!

Personal growth and development is an individual responsibility. It is a continuous process that ends in death. It is an indisputable fact that maturity does not go along with age. It is amazing that there are many people who don’t show signs of growth and development in their character...

23/52 - self portrait challenge

 

dirty laundry - personal matters that could be embarrassing if made public

 

I love the english language and some of the wonderful expressions and sayings - so naturally this image came to pass. With the incredible growth of social networks such as facebook - an all new phenomenon has occurred, where people discuss their most intimate and private thoughts and actions.

In fact there is just no holding back anymore.

 

Everyone is doing it. We're not only connecting with old- friends, we acquire new ones and then proceed to share every aspect of our existence.

why?

 

Now, don't get me wrong, i don't mind a bit of venting and sharing, but really... do we have to show all the cracks in our personas and pray tell - what makes some people think that we want to hear it? In fact it seems that the general public who subscribe to this seem to feast on the 'dishing out' of personal information.

Maybe when we read something that reeks of scandal we feel better about ourselves and our own miserable existence.How else can one justify reality shows (amongst other things)?

 

Is it just me or am i being old-fashioned? i don't wish to offend anyone, just to understand why this is happening...If you don't want to particpate in my random ramblings then just enjoy this lovely image :)))))!

 

may tuesday rock..

(Did I just really type that? Did that really just happen?)

  

With dedication comes patience, with patience comes growth.

 

That is what my 365 has brought me: dedication, patience and growth. In three hundred and sixty five days, I have learned how to extend and retract my tripod in lightning speed and use a remote. (Haha, just kidding, I learned so much more than just that, DON’T WORRY.) This year, I learned what dedication truly feels like, what pride in one self means, and I (hopefully!!) learned how to take better photographs.

 

The reason why this project means so much to me is because I let it become something personal and meaningful to me. I documented all my emotions, days and thoughts in photographs. These photographs are not just frozen times in my life, but memories to me. The changes that I have gone through this year are all captured in these pictures. The relationships I have lost and made with people… each chapter closing and opening can be found in these very photos. This project has allowed people of acquaintance to accept me as someone more than a giggling, blubbering lunatic (or not, right, it’s up to you).

 

That being said… “people of acquaintance”: Thank you for being here for me. Thank you to everyone who has complimented my work in likes (Facebook), favourites (Flickr) and comments. Thank you to those who have inspired me, encouraged me (especially when I felt like giving up), and given me support. I would not have made it this far without your support- I would have quit. Thank you to those who have loyally followed me on this journey from day one, your sweetness cannot be thanked enough for. And THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO TOLD ME THAT THEY WERE EXPECTING SOME MIND BLOWING LAST DAY PHOTO!! YOU GUYS GAVE ME SO MUCH PRESSURE!! :P (So, I guess I gotta apologize if this photo didn’t meet your standards!! Sorry, guys!!)

 

I think I got a lot of the serious stuff out of the way… Let’s talk about all stupid behaviour that I have conducted in this project. I cannot count the times that I forgot my memory card in my laptop and went straight out with my memory card- less camera!! Oh man! Or those times that my battery decided to die on me but I was too lazy to charge my spare the night before, so I had no camera at all! Ugh! And all those times that I was shooting in a public area like a park or some open road where cars just kept passing by! ALL THOSE AWKWARD GLANCES AND STARES!! Hahah, today, I was shooting in front of a full tennis court right. I was right in plain view of the tennis players and it was really awkward, but I just kept thinking, “SCREW IT. LAST DAY. I’LL DO WHAT I WANT AND THIS WILL NEVER HAVE TO HAPPEN AGAIN!” And all those times where I had to walk to my location! UGH! My legs are so sore from all the walking that I did today! I went out from 2 PM to 6 PM trying to shoot something decent, but I came home very unsatisfied. So I went at 7:40 PM and came back at 8:20 with my final photo.

 

So this is what I’ve accomplished in a year. The amount of improvement… I am actually not sure if I got any better or if it was the change of my lens that has really helped haha.

 

This year has been tedious and hard; with the combination of school, my social life (WAIT WHAT SOCIAL LIFE HAHA) and a huge dedication, I can finally relax! (Ohkay just for a week and then school starts again.) There is no doubt that I am incredibly proud of myself, but this pride would not exist without all of your help.

 

Lastly, this is certainly not good bye. I will not disappear off the face of this earth. I am planning to start another photography project, perhaps another 365 or maybe a 52 weeks project or just a one month project. I am undecided in that area, but what I have decided is that I am going to do a print giveaway!

I’m not sure if I want to do the print for my outtakes as well, so leave your opinion in the comments below and… I guess I’m finally done.

 

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

 

Is it silly that I feel tears in the corners of my eyes?

I did the Warrior Dash last weekend and I've never seen more bruises on my knees and elbows even with ten years of soccer and dance each ever.

 

Yes I'm still sticking numbers on. I'm shooting the last one tomorrow or Saturday so that I can move forward with a clean conscious and do something new.

on self growth and acceptance:

i've come to realize that there are flaws in everyone, whether hidden or plainly in sight. we need to accept who we are and who others are. within the past year, i feel as if i have changed the most. i understand more about myself and the world, and not through days sitting in the classroom, but through photography, through music, through flickr, through everything else. there are so many things i want now, so many ideas that float through my mind. somehow, i'm seeing the world differently. i want to create, i want to inspire. i want to write all my thoughts down and keep a collection of memories so that one day i can look back and remember everything i'd gone through. i want to become an artist, i want to draw and paint and create and do whatever i want.

i'm slowly trying to find myself. i'm trying to figure out who i am.

i am growing and everything's changing around me, but that's okay.

i had a strong urge to write something meaningful, something personal. i need to document my thoughts like this more often. xx

 

also, my name is now angela w* because this is honest and this is me

this might go on friends only for myself tomorrow

When we are close and in touch with our moral instincts, our set of values, be it God or your personal growth what is right and wrong is very clear. Yet as we drift away the lines seem to get unclear and often get blurred. I have recently felt like I have been drifting away from God recently and as a result, I feel my lines have been unclear and often blurry. But we can always come back down the right track and be right with Him again for He always loves us!

 

Hope you all had a great day!

Many thanks to all who have taken the time to award, comment on/or select this image as a personal favourite.

Cheers!

I saw her about to cross the intersection in downtown Toronto and was drawn to her friendly face and bright hair. When I approached her and explained my photography project she was interested and said she would be glad to participate. I suggested we step across the sidewalk and use the painted wood paneling alongside the Eaton Center mall as a background. I thought the plain black background would work well along with the sheltered light. Meet Shantelle.

 

Photos taken, we proceeded to chat. Shantelle is a native-born Torontonian who grew up just a mile from where we were standing. I pass through her neighborhood on my way downtown on a regular basis. She is 21 and is studying Nursing at the nearby university. In fact, she was on her way to an exam when she agreed to be photographed for my project. Luckily, she was ahead of schedule and was glad to spend a few minutes meeting and being photographed. She had the personality of a good caregiver – quiet and gentle, yet friendly, attentive and a good listener.

 

She started out wanting to be a gynecologist but the demands of the lengthy training and her limited financial resources made that career impractical for her and she switched her sights to nursing. After graduation, she would like to work in the field of public health, perhaps in a homeless shelter, because those are the areas where she feels she could make the biggest difference with needy populations.

 

Her biggest challenge in life? “It was self-image and confidence.” We talked about the pressures our society places on women in particular regarding appearance. I asked what has helped her most in dealing with this challenge and she said “Education. Getting my professional training and skill set has given me a confidence I didn’t have previously.” This was an interesting example of how important education is – not only for getting a job, but also for personal growth.

 

Shantelle’s message to the world is “You must love yourself first in order to love others.” She added “I know not everyone is religious, but if you are I would add the message Believe in God.”

 

We exchanged contact information so I could send Shantelle her photos and we parted with a handshake. I wished her success on today’s exam but somehow I don’t think that was necessary. Shantelle struck me as a very motivated young woman who is bound to succeed on her own.

So, as some of you guys know, I'm no longer an SL photographer, It's was my occupation for so long, but as we humans change, our goals change as well... I have mad respect and admiration for every photographer out there... Being a photographer in SL is hard work, you have to make a mute image speak for itself, tell a story, sell a product, have a soul.

At one point I noticed that I was not being able to express myself through commissioned photography projects, and that resulted in lack of emotion and inspiration to continue my work, so for this particular reason I decided to stop "presenting" myself as a photographer and focused on other personal projects...

But then you meet a specific kind of people, who makes you feel so comfortable around them, and it feels as if you guys met long time ago, they have the power of making everything looks so easy... You admire them enough to express yourself by simply making a portrait of them. For those, my dear dear friends, who are with me, rooting for me and all my achievements, showing support when I am having a bad day, I will Always be here, a friend, a photographer, anything and everything they need.

 

This pic means a lot for me, because its about personal growth and realization, and I want to congratulate my friend Divos for this amazing Project.

 

Thanks for being such amazing friend.

When I became a contributor to flickr nearly five years ago, I was a newish photographer that was aimlessly trying to find my way around flickr. Making contacts was difficult for me, because I am shy by nature and I did not want to seem rude or forward in any way. My photography was not very good either, but I have improved a little bit over the years.

 

There were four people that caught my eye right away and I still love their work; Kelsie, Ara, Maryanne and Danielle. Each can tell a story with both the written word and with a single spectacular image. I have had the opportunity to meet up and make photographs with all of them, which has been so awesome. Kelsie, is one of my great hiking partners and I follow her lead into the wilds of the Olympics on a regular basis!

 

When I wrote my book, these four women played a part in it. They gave me the confidence to undertake a project that I wasn't sure I could complete. As I watched and followed their wonderful work and life adventures, I garnered the inspiration and passion to go for it. I spent many hundreds of hours striving to put together a book----about my life really, and it was fun. I learned a lot about myself. I realized that living a life filled with great undertakings helped me to define the final third of my existence. As a result, I became more grateful for all of the blessings that presented themselves.

 

So with that, I will continue to indulge my appetite here on the new flickr and I hope my friends will stay around. They have given me so much and I am grateful to know them all. In particular, Danielle remains a fixture and a rock for my own personal growth within the wild world of photography.

 

I will be staying here and I look forward to seeing my friends continued beautiful work :)

"The agony of breaking through personal limitations is the agony of spiritual growth.

Art, literature, myth and cult, philosophy, and ascetic disciplines are instruments to help the individual past his limiting horizons into spheres of ever-expanding realization.

As he crosses threshold after threshold, conquering dragon after dragon, the stature of the divinity that he summons to his highest wish increases, until it subsumes the cosmos.

Finally, the mind breaks the bounding sphere of the cosmos to a realization transcending all experiences of form - all symbolizations, all divinities: a realization of the ineluctable void."

(From "The Hero With a Thousand Faces" by Joseph Campbell)

 

A few days ago as I was coming to the Ganges at dawn I saw this sādhu on the top of Dasaswamedh Ghat.

He must have been transcending all experiences of form in order to become a follower of Lord Shiva...

There is a local photography competition running at the moment titled "energy". I thought that my "flying photo" which this is based on would be a good entry, but had to reshoot it. I've always wanted to return to this photo anyway, given that it was extremely personal last summer, and is also still one of my personal favourites - so here is the result.

 

I'll keep you informed as to how the competition goes.

 

Finally accepting

Finally turning away

Finally looking forward

Finally starting again

Finally removing the reminders

Whether this is corn on the cob or wheat, it probably links with a harvest, a reward from work done. It also suggests fertility, nourishment and a sense of fullness. In some dreams it may represent sustenance or strength in times of need or trial. Occasionally wordplay for corny.

 

The seeds of corn also have the power of life and growth in them unless they have been processed, as happens with white rice and white flour, which is thus rendered ‘dead’. They can thus indicate your potential for personal growth, but this usually links with a power within yourself, the power of Life itself, that has the ability to move you and unfold your potential. This inner activity links your independent life with the whole.

 

... I HAVE TO ADD THE FOLLOWING:

the white porridge over the squared wood surface is "polenta" and it is made of corn flour and water and it is a very poor but precious aliment...

in the countryside our grandparents were used to engrave a cross when they served it: it was a sign to thank God for the daily meal...

I'M DONE!

 

OMG.....I can't believe it. I'm finally done.

 

Some days were better than others, some days I was thrilled I had to do it, other days I hated that I had to do it but, all in all, I have really enjoyed this project.

 

I only had one day where I almost quit back in the spring but I'm really glad I didn't. On that day, I decided that I was going to finish no matter WHAT was going on and even if all I could post that day was a stupid picture of me in my car or at work or making a face or whatever, I was going to do it and I was going to finish.

 

This project was a personal challenge and also something that was for me. I really needed that. As many of you know, I own my own business and let me tell you, I work a lot. I also work with people. I help people all day. I answer calls and emails and talk to customers that come in the front door and sometimes, I don't feel like I do ANYTHING for myself. It was nice to have a project with a personal goal and something I could do for my own personal growth.

 

I can't even begin to imagine how much I have learned this year and how much I have learned that I NEED TO LEARN! lol

 

I am truly happy to have done this project AND I am truly happy that it is done. It's time to look to the future, to a new year and to new challenges.

 

And to all my friends here on Flickr who have offered encouragement and support, even when I posted less than stellar shots...

 

THANK YOU & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This title is pretty fitting for me right now. This summer has been one of the busiest ever. Moving out into my own flat, exams for OU course, photographing a bazillion weddings, and a lot more. It has been fun but it has been pretty stressful. I am really looking forward to the winter and getting back to what I love - personal work, art projects and maybe a few fashion tests.

 

I am hoping to spend a lot more time on this project and develop it more.

 

I'm also going to try to be more active on Flickr so we'll see how that goes!

It is truth, given in a real way as never before, that people need, and at the end of the book, all people will know how to be better at life and in life.

"Allow walking to occupy a place of stature equal with all the other important activities in your life. Turn your walking into a vehicle for personal growth as well as for fitness. This will add a higher level of integrity and intention to your approach because you will find that it is a way to deepen and upgrade your relationship to your body. Instead of merely giving your legs and a good workout, you'll be practicing to relax more, to breathe better, to expand your vision, to open up your range of motion, to increase your energy, to feel and sense your body. With all of this to look forward to, your walking program will take its place alongside everything in your life you value most, and you'll be amazed at how easy it is to schedule time for something you really love to do."

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) I've been beyond busy recently. We bought a house, sold a house, and in two days we are set to witness the arrival of our first born. I'm in the midst of one of those phases where life cranks into supedrive. All that's left to do is hold on and enjoy the ride!

 

Speaking from experience, these times also tend to be transformational, a time of personal growth and expansion. I can't wait to see what the next several months hold in store!

*Quartz crystals are a gift from our Mother earth. They have the ability to amplify or strengthen the things in you that are positive, and can help you put away things that cause you fear or anger. They can strengthen your ability to be a loving person, and can enhance your abilities to enjoy life and accomplish the things you want in life. They can amplify INTENTION, reduce stress, help with CENTERING (balancing or calming), strengthen HEALING abilities, and surround you with PROTECTION by amplifying white light. Any healthy quartz crystal point can strengthen these things and help produce personal growth by amplifying the subtle energies that flow inside you. Also blocks all electrical obb's.

I've uploaded this at a really stupid time... whatchagonnado.

 

This skull actually belongs to the art department at my school, but I love it so I asked my art teacher if I could take it home for the weekend, haha. I know that the animal-skull-antler thing has been done to death, but I got the idea for this when I found the small twig that I used for Becky's antlers on a dog walk this week. The story behind it is supposed to be a young child mourning the loss of a parent, and to serve as a reminder of mortality, personal growth and learning to adapt to situations and 'live on'.

 

It was an excruciatingly tough decision between this and the black and white version which I edited up first and actually really loved. I might do that annoying thing that I do and post it in the comments to torture myself (and you too). It's because I love you.

 

Oh, and me & Becky gave this shoot the working title of 'Stag do', hahaha.

I've been living more in the moment lately. I try to enjoy everyday and every moment as much as possible. Two years ago I would always think of my past and constantly worry about the future. It left me in limbo. Some growth occurred but it was incremental. These paintings are dedicated to personal growth and individuality. I still have my eye on the future but am willing to flex, bend, and branch out in order to pursue my bliss.

 

My work has always had a sense of history through the surface. I painted my trees on vintage envelopes which taps into the history element. They measure 8.5" x 13.5". gouache and ink.

PERSONAL DICTIONARY

 

PARADISE exists and is personal. The map is within each one of us. It is essential to study hard in order to locate and understand its reading. No one will ever give us this map. Other minds can only help us with our study, because alone, our mind will go nowhere. To be able to reach it, we have to pay the price, passing through storms and deserts. We can choose not to reach it, but the end result is the existence of small islands of joy in the midst of vast oceans of emptiness.

 

FULL FREEDOM can only be experienced from at the moment we stop harming the Planet where we are and respect the uniqueness of each form of manifested life. It requires breaking from ignorance and developing the highest level of ethics. Live and let live, live together, learn and teach, if it is not possible to live together, move, and if your space is invaded, warn the intruder, if they don't understand, "bite". True freedom only applies to the absolute break from ignorance, including within the heart.

 

FULL HAPPINESS is only possible when the whole is in equilibrium and harmonized. Without internal harmony and all that surrounds us, happiness is an illusion, just a personal wellbeing confused with happiness and poor durability. There is no formula; each must discover the path, your own formula.

 

LIFE is the Manifested Universal Intelligence; an indescribable beauty, dynamic, in constant transformation and creation process. We must have unconditional love for life to be within its flow, and thus also to create, build and transform (love unconditionally, regardless of what others think; make it independent of your mistakes and successes in the process of growth).

 

EVIL-evil does not exist as a source; evil is a product of ignorance.

 

COSMIC LAWS-The cosmic laws exist; it is not a question of belief but a fact. According to the progress of our evolutionary journey, we are discovering, experiencing and testing each law, to finally reach our free will in harmony with each discovered law; but to achieve perfection, which is the perfect balance in ourselves, each one of us has to discover it in our own way, because we are singular stars. When we get it, we come into beautiful harmonization with the network of life, each of us performing our part for the perfect "functioning" of the cosmic Web, before all that, without exception, LIGHT and DARKNESS, PAIN and LOVE, WILL BE OUR MASTERS with EQUAL INTENSITY, Whether WE LIKE IT OR NOT ...

 

The HUMAN RACE has not yet become "human", some groups and individuals strive for such intent. We are all beings in construction.

 

LOVE is the largest and most complete INTELLIGENCE of all universes, realities and dimensions, we are still in the embryonic stage to its understanding.

 

ETHICS Individually or collectively, is relatively a moral concept not because it is timely or fashionable. (this is moral), Ethics, when well understood, will demonstrate eternal truths about right and wrong (everything that upsets the balance is wrong), so healthy Ethics is a matter of SURVIVAL. Ethics not only cover human issues, but must be present in any dealings with planet Earth, nature and unique, without which no life would be possible, therefore worthy of respect and reverence.

 

INTELLIGENCE its manifestation means the information accumulated in the brain is known how to be used. The information in the brain is not intelligence itself, such as a computer, the brain is the PC, who uses it and how well it is used will demonstrate the presence of high or low intelligence.

 

SUPERIOR AND INFERIOR - don't believe in superiority and inferiority, but in Primitivism and evolution. Those who are behind are exactly where we once were; and those who are ahead of us will one day be at our side. Only some go at the speed of a turtle and others are pilots of formula one.

 

SIMPLICITY- since real simplicity contains all complexity itself, experiencing simplistic living to its fullness is required before assimilating the complexities of life.

 

JUDGMENT do not judge by appearances, they can be very misleading. It is necessary to see essence, and we are just barely able to see a little of the essence because we do not perceive it in ourselves. We must strive for understanding, this does not imply acceptance. Understanding is crucial and now the Major Challenge is to know how to deal wisely.

 

TRUTH - The truth indeed LIBERATES, the truth is always beautiful, it is ugly and painful the moment when the illusion is broken, for we live life attributed to an artificial beauty and being artificial, it is not sustainable.

 

INDEPENDENCE is all an illusion.

 

EXAMPLE:

 

When you put a CD to enjoy a sound that gives you pleasure, what happened before you can enjoy this moment of pleasure?

 

Someone spent the time to write the songs, people manufactured the instruments; others had to get the raw materials to fabricate the instruments that are finally distributed in stores. Various persons invented and perfected apparatus to record music, as well as equipment and accessories with a function to reproduce it and finally, having succeeded in both situations, made distributions to markets. To reiterate, imagine the number of people involved with the whole process of manufacturing and distribution of the CD in your hands that you are about to enjoy!

 

Now think about each product used in your day-to-day life. Look in any direction and you'll notice a number, sometimes a large number of people involved so that you can reasonably spend your day. You are completely dependent on a large network of human beings and thus have access to basic minimum or even a full life of comfort, luxury and pleasures that money (currently) can provide. It is possible, under favorable conditions, some autonomy is in the environment we live, but do not confuse certain autonomy with independence!

 

This is not the only network that we are entirely dependent upon. There is a network of nature that keeps us alive, providing all food and all raw materials for consumption of products that we need.

 

There is also a more subtle network, but just as important as any for a healthy survival, that which is of affection and gratitude of our individual existence, for without it we become sick and unhealthy ...

 

As such there are many other networks and subnets that sustain us, keeping us alive at various levels, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual essence, as we are an integral part of these networks, fitting in fulfilling our role in the progress of the net / web and when we refuse, this same network / web does not give us back what we need ...

  

DRUGS - All drugs alter the perception at different levels of reality (including alcohol), working as a pair of scissors cutting through our natural sensor allowing the dark side, that we all have at this stage of evolution, to come to the surface, invariably damaging, often violently, to a greater or lesser degree, ourselves and eventually all that are close to us. Drugs take you for a very long journey, far from yourself. DEEP AWARENESS CAN ONLY EXIST UNDER THE YOKE OF CLARITY.

 

ROMANTIC AND FRATERNAL RELATIONSHIP

 

LOVE IS NOT BORN READY

LOVE IS LEARNED

LOVE BECOMES

LOVE, A CONTINUOUS MOVEMENT

THAT WE MUST FOLLOW-UP

WITH FAITH, ETHICS, STRENGTH AND COURAGE.

THEREFORE, LIVE IN LOVE

IT IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE OF OUR LIFE!

(and requires intelligence that can be developed)

The Gay Games is the world's largest sporting and cultural event organized by and specifically for LGBT athletes, artists, musicians, and others. It welcomes participants of every sexual orientation and every skill level. Originally called the Gay Olympics, it was started in San Francisco in 1982, as the brainchild of Tom Waddell, whose goals were to promote the spirit of inclusion and participation, as well as the pursuit of personal growth in a sporting event. It retains many similarities with the Olympics, including the Gay Games flame which is lit at the opening ceremony.

The Gay Games is open to all who wish to participate, without regard to sexual orientation. There are no qualifying standards to compete in the Gay Games. It brings together people from all over the world, many from countries where homosexuality remains illegal and hidden.

The Federation of Gay Games (FGG) is the sanctioning body of the Gay Games. From its statement of concept and purpose:

The purpose of the Federation of Gay Games is to foster and augment the self-respect of lesbians and gay men throughout the world and to engender respect and understanding from the nongay world, primarily through an organized international participatory athletic and cultural event held every four years, and commonly known as the Gay Games.

Gay Games VIII were held in Cologne, Germany from July 31 to August 6, 2010.

Are the eyes the window to the soul? I've ever been fascinated by 'The Picture of Dorian Gray', by Oscar Wilde. In it, Dorian Gray is a young man who ever mantains his young, innocent and pure appearance, though his portrait reflects not only the passing time, but his debauchery, self-indulgent sensualism and growing cruelty. This novel es previous to Carl Jung's work about the Shadow, but Wilde speaks about this powerfull archetype in an amazing way.

 

Last weekend I've been assisted to an Enneagram workshop at Madrid -where I took this photo-. In it, I've learned a lot of things about me. Many years ago, I found the Enneagram and it has became -to me- in a powerful tool to self-knowledge and personal growth... not ever easy

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

¿Es la cara el espejo del alma? Siempre me ha fascinado El retrato de Dorian Grey, en la que el protagonista mantiene siempre una imagen angelical, joven, inocente, mientras que su retrato refleja no sólo el paso de los años, sino su depravación creciente, sus vicios, sus crueldades. Una novela previa al concepto de sombra descrito por Carl Jung, pero que habla de este arquetipo de una forma fascinante.

 

Este último fin de semana he estado en Madrid (donde tomé la foto) en un taller en el que he aprendido mucho sobre mi. Hace años descubrí el Eneagrama por casualidad y se ha convertido, para mi, en una poderosa herramienta de autoconocimiento y crecimiento personal... no siempre fácil

I began to have an idea of my life, not as the slow shaping of achievement to fit my preconceived purposes, but as the gradual discovery and growth of a purpose which I did not know.
