Break the bread
With both fists
Falling over your feet
Then spit the wine
of your mouth full of lies
Harshly enough that droplets
Slide down your hair
Like blood spatter
Isn’t that what
Has really meant to you?
Or did you allegedly
Consume the last
Bits of crumbs
Lick them from your
You might as well
Those are the last
Remnants of what we had
There will be no more
Feasting for your hunger
You will always
Let the need drive you
And so you sink
As I expected
Slithering back into
The dark hole
That becomes you

While we are all connected as humans, we are also individuals. Each one of us a unique spiritual being with our own abilities to perceive reality the way it reveals itself to us.
Everyone may not see things the way you do, or understand the messages that you have to offer.
Don’t let that stop you from believing in yourself and your unique ability to share your light and your message with those around you. For every person that is not ready for what you have to share, there is another person who is seeking the knowledge and perspective you have.
Be uniquely you. Don’t get locked into a big of only perceiving what society tells you is there.
Reach within as you expand your awareness beyond your mind/ body form.
Your existence extends way beyond your skin and your limbs. Listen. Breathe in what is around you. Allow for the unlikely or the unexpected to be there.
Someone is awaiting your very perspective. Never cease to believe in your worth and your value on this planet.
As your consciousness expands, there is a butterfly affect that travels to the four corners of the earth. Just because you cannot always see your influence on the planet dies not mean it does not happen daily.

Dover train station goes back to 1902. The original building is in good condition, with a working restaurant inside.
I took these pictures recently. I thought you guys might find it interesting. People catch this train daily to go to work in New York city.
The train also goes to Hoboken, New Jersey and Morristown, New Jersey. It runs 7 days a week. The weekend schedules are a bit different than the weekday schedule.
You can get on at Penn Station in New York City, and travel to Dover to arrive at this very building.
I love the old red bricks and architecture of this building.
Just for fun, here’s a haunted editing of the picture.
Each day they’re saying something…
Never aiming to catch your attention…
Hoping you are distracted enough…
Not to seek out any intervention…
Uttering words without meaning…
And telling little white untruths…
Preaching to the ignorant masses…
From the elderly to the numbed youth…
But do you really hear them…
Do you understand their words…
Read in-between the constructed lines…
Or care what motivates their world…
A world where everybody cheats…
A world where everybody lies…
They wrap up all of the dysfunction…
Hide secrets deep behind their eyes…
Always standing in the shadows…
Sending messages to your ears…
Projecting from a cold dark place…
And preying on all your worst fears…
Telling you what they want you to hear…
Always force feeding you their version…
As you swallow with a pinch of salt…
They’re looking for the next diversion…
But they’ve failed to communicate…
To each and every single…

Watching the tv series “Grimm” tonight, reminded me that we all have a frame of reality that we were taught long ago.
As children we were conditioned to perceive things in a certain way. We were taught by our families, our culture, our friends, and our particular religion, to accept certain realities and to reject others.
Any reality which we were conditioned to reject, was programmed into our subconscious as basically invisible.
We were conditioned to create certain associations about types of people. The brain can sum up a stranger in a manner of seconds based on the way they are dressed, their body language, and the way they speak.
This subconscious categorizing of people can protect you from danger and guide you towards the right person to ask for help. But not all of the things we were taught were correct.
Some lessons were taught to us by misguided, though well meaning, family members, friends and teachers. People tend to hold onto whatever they were taught growing up. Therefore they pass the same biases and inaccuracies down to the next generation.
Each generation then tried to assess and rearrange their own thoughts and beliefs to fit their own situations, but there is often a lot of bleeding over of false beliefs from one generation to the next.
While grouping certain types of people into “safe” and “unsafe” categories can serve us to a great degree, it can also lead us right into danger. It can also lead us away from people that would benefit our lives if we got to know them.
Your intuition is always your best and first line of defense. It also can suggest to you to go in a certain direction, even when you’ve been conditioned not to.
But typically we are taught to ignore our intuition…our gut feelings…and lean towards whatever biases we were brought up with.
Depending on what kind of parents you had growing up, you might have been given a feeling of independence and confidence in your own judgement. But that’s not always the case.
You may have had parents that were controlling and manipulative. They may have intentionally crushed down your confidence, as well as your faith in your intuition. They may have programmed you to believe that their opinions were somehow superior to your own senses.
You may have even been intentionally mislead about how to assess the people that you meet, as far as who to trust and who to run from.
Whether it was intentional or not, the things you learned as a child were taken in by your brain and processed at the age level that they were given to you. Then those beliefs were reinforced, or even contradicted to confuse you, at various ages growing up.
No matter what, the things you learned about your world as a child, must be re-evaluated as an adult.
We cannot rely on what we were taught as children.
We cannot rely on what parents with a hidden agenda, or even good – intentioned parents conditioned us to believe.
We most certainly cannot rely on our own interpretation as a child, on those same things that were taught to us.
As adults, we must identify what beliefs are being held in our subconscious. Then we need to evaluate the truth of those beliefs. We also need to decide which of those beliefs are serving us well, and which ones might actually be harming us.
Our brain will find simple ways of making judgements because it’s faster and takes up less energy and time. If we don’t consciously think about things, we will go right to the associations that were conditioned into us as children.
No one ever told us to re-check these associations as adults. The people that wanted certain beliefs and biases programmed into you will probably not come forward and tell you to re-evaluate them for yourselves now.
The end result is a tendency to change the facts right in front of you, in order to make them fit your beliefs.
The better option is to look at the facts realistically, and then to re – evaluate your beliefs to fit the facts.
When you alter the facts, reframe the facts, disregard what you see to be true, or generalize things to fit what you were taught, you are in danger of more brainwashing, and mind control.
You are in danger of letting that “perfect stranger” right into your house, because you were taught to categorize them as safe, when they may be exactly to opposite. Even if your gut is telling you to keep away, your subconscious belief system is pushing you to make quick associations.
You can miss opportunities that might be really good for your future, because you were taught to be suspicious of certain things, or you were told time and time again that “someone like you” can’t achieve certain things.
Maybe you were taught that “someone like you” can’t attract certain kinds of people. Maybe you were covertly conditioned that certain types of friends or jobs are out of your reach.
Possibly, someone was trying to protect you from disappointment, because they were infused with the same beliefs …. that they could not have certain things, or attract certain kinds of people who are “better” than they are.
Or maybe someone conditioned you to deny yourself opportunities because they actually had some hidden agenda for keeping you sheltered from knowing what you can actually do in your life. Maybe they wanted to keep your self esteem low, so they could wield a certain degree of control over you.
It could be that a teacher you had was the one that taught you to “stay in your place” to the degree that you are still holding a subconscious belief that you actually have a “place” or a status that you were born to stay in.
As adults, we need to re-teach ourselves. We need to re – train our brains to see what we see, and to believe things based on what we discover to be true.
As creative beings, we have the right to our passion and our personal inspiration.
You have a right to your dreams, your visions and to realize any talents that you think you might have.
Also remember that your intuition is there to serve you. If someone or something doesn’t feel right, then it probably isn’t.
If something feels like its calling you, then don’t give up and run the other way just because someone once told you that those kinds of dreams are for some other kind of person.
Protect yourself and prioritize your needs and desires, rather than always strive to fit within whatever box you were told was yours to fit into.
Let yourself let go of whatever mental chains were placed on you at a young age.
Love others who deserve your love. Help others when you can, but not to the point where you are being used and exploited.
If it’s walks like a duck and talks like a duck, then it’s probably a duck.
