A collective celebration of life.

Imitation as Evolution

I am sure we have all heard, “imitation is the sincerest  form of flattery”.  While some may deem this to be flat out lazy, or wrong (if there is such a thing as write or wrong…lol)  I know foLol wing those you admire as a means of lifting each of us up.

I agree, that you are a composite of 5 people that you hang around most.  I choose to hang with the “Big dogs” until I get to that point myself.

Sure, it’s all well and good to be original and creative.  And  you can do that by being a copycat too.

Using mentors systems and strategies helps me because it causes my own ideas to blossom.  I can see how the dots connect between what my mentors are doing and where I want to be.

I get excited by sharing in the joy of success and the thrill of anything new which may be presented as well.

It also helps in knowing, I have support.  I know I have an army of back up any time I may need it as well.

A sure source of support and guidance, gives me the security I need to blossom…and to flourish.

Thanks to Kim, Eric, nd the rest of the “Justice League” for  always having my back.  It would be my honor to do the same.

Welcome!

I am Zoe.

I’ve done some crazy shit in my day.  Lol.  That’s part of being human…and it’s ok.  This is how we find out what we can handle.

I, for one, know that I get more badass with every thing I choose to do.  I must admit, I LOVE A CHALLENGE!

The quickest way to get my attention is to tell me I can’t do something.  Hearing anything like “no” or “I can’t” instantly revs my motor.  At this point, its’s a Pavlov thing.  The word no is an instant trigger for me to stop and say to myself, “The Hell I Can’t!”  Sugar, you have no idea what I am capable of 🙂

I know who I am.  I know Life as Love and Endless Possibilities.  I know the Universe stands with me.  (For those allergic to the G word, that means I know God’s got my back.)  I just have to show up…and I intend to.  Heck, as far as I am concerned…It is already done.

And believe you me, I AM WILD.  I AM WILLING.  I AM STRONG…because I have the faith of God.

Let the children keep bickering, while we grown folks change the world.  I BELIEVE in LOVE.  I don’t care if you are white, black, blue, or purple.  We are all the ONE family.  We are all the same…because we are human.

If you don’t have respect for LIFE (abortion, murder, rioting, and all the other crazy shit we keep hearing about) all that means is you don’t love yourself. (Wanna know what that means?  Check out my blog @ shespeakswithjoy.com)

The world can change.  We can change the world.  You just have to change your mind first.

I can talk forever if you get me started.  I am sure I have given you enough to chew on at the moment.

Fear not, I will be back…and often.  I have a lot to say, and it’s time you hear it.

May the force be with you all! 🙂

Take care,

Zoe

(In essence, the word “can’t” does not exist for me.  There is always a way if you are willing.)

The Greatest Love of All aka Self-Love

l3

 

I do realize we all suffer from a collective PTSD around the word “God” in one way or another.

I, for one, know it well.  I ran away screaming from the church in the 8th grade.  I thought I was living large…ever since.  I didn’t give it a second thought until I was 44 years old.  It happens.  It happens to the best of us.

Growing up, I had been told that I was evil… and I was going to hell…And I did my best in the meantime to live up to that prophesy.

So, in light of that.  I have decided to speak to you as you are ready to hear.  Start at ground zero- with your self.

You don’t have to talk to anybody else.  You don’t have to change your life.  You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do.

As a disclaimer, please keep in mind two things.

  1.  What is the definition of insanity?
  2.   If you keep doing the things you have always done, you will keep getting what you have always got.

For our purposes, I will make #2 more specific.

If you keep believing as you have always believed, you will live the same life.

How easy is it to change your mind?  As a woman working in this lifetime of experience, I can honestly say, “I can change my mind as soon as I make it up”.  I can change my mind with a swiftness.  I’m a woman.  It’s my prerogative, right?

This superpower serves me well.

Seriously.  I love the super computing power of the mind.  In a split second, you can look at what is in front of you…and decide.

A split second is all that it takes to change your life.  You can re-format your mind to always serve you by only selecting what serves your highest good.

Forget this love one another crap.

You know how they say, “you can’t love any one else until you love your self”?

It’s true.

How can you even begin to know what such a concept would be?

Do you think it’s ok for some one else to be in control of your life?

Is it ok to put up with abuse in any form from anyone?  From our self even?  Explain to me how this is ok.

Let me clue you in to one thing.

If you just love your self…you are loving your neighbor.  Heck, if you would just love your self…you are loving the whole wide world.  Let that marinate for a bit.

When you are in love, are you worried?  Do you feel fear?  Hate?  When you are caught by and swept up by your Beloved’s scent.  What are you thinking then?  Is there room for anything else?  In that moment?

How about when you are caught up in that burn?  The all consuming passionate fire of lust?  How hard is it to even remember what your own name is…in that moment?  Do you want anything else?  Do you need anything else?

I have been so backed up that I have been mad enough to kill.

That is another way we allow conditions (what we see out there or what we hear in our head)  to control us.  If you keep the sheep, aka hamster, spinning on the hamster wheel- it’s easier to control the puppet.

Change your mind.  Change your life.  It sounds easy.  It’s not.  But it can be…It’s up to you.  Literally.

We are all infinitely more powerful than we believe.

I am living proof that you too can live the good life.

Prove that to your self.

There is great Love in that.

Do what rings true for you.  It’s the only guide aka God…you will ever need.

 

Some things just have to be spoken.

Y not U?  Then Y not I?

Feel your touch all through the sky.

Sifting through deserted dreams.

Things are never what they seem.

Caught in the near be-tween.

Take the comfort of wingless sleep.

Then awaken, my child.  All was just dreams.

To be, as one, in as btween.

All know Love now.  Again.

Embrace the Mystery

I always had a serious thing for reading.  I knew It was God talking to me.  No matter what.  Be IT Magazine, Mystery, Romance, Textbook…even a note scribbled in a well loved textbook had something to say.  IT‘s All God.  AnyOne that knows me can tell you, I DEVOUR books.  In those books, you meet the secret’s of the World.

When you are ready, you can actually sense IT.  Anything IS Possible.  IT CAN BE EASY!

Run and hide if you like.  You can try.  You can’t hide from God.  You are IT‘s Imprint.  All that you are, God IS.  All that God Is, You are.

So what is the problem then?  BELIEF.

My brother calls that the “Okie doke”.  The World has fallen for the Okie doke.

There IS no greater gift than Good.

There IS no greater gift than You.

Believe IT, and set yourSelf FREE.

We are here to save the WORLD…in a sense.

I just want to let you know that you can.

You may not see it clearly right now, but FAITH in your BELIEF will shake that glass clear again.

So you will find me at CSLT (Center for Spritual Living Tucson)… doing my part.

Join us any time.  At CSLT, there’s only family here.

IT‘s who we are.

Take care,

The Power Of Choice

Do you want to know when I knew my Beloved and I, were Perfect for each other?

Well…It wasn’t because he took me to “The Flying V” at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort.  It wasn’t because he encouraged me to order from the Right side of the menu.  (Or whatever side the menu items with no prices are listed on.)

It was because…on our very First date.  He said, “You don’t have to eat all that”.

I literally stopped.  And thought to myself, “I don’t?”  Then I LOOKed UP, because I realized…You know what, I don’t!

45 years old is a long way from 2.  See how easy IT IS to get stuck on auto-pilot.  I had been told to clean my plate, and there were Starving People in the world.  How dare I?  How dare, I?  Don’t waste food, it’s too expensive.

That narrative was on repeat in my MIND.  Awake.  Asleep.  Watching Netflix.  No matter what I might have been doing.  Without my Knowledge.  Without my Permission.  This broken record has been controlling me Since Birth.  I can’t blame my parents, anyOne, or anything else.  It only takes hearing something a few times before IT becomes part of you.

Think of All the catchy songs that get stuck in your head.  You know.  That ONE song that you can’t stand, but can’t help singing because IT’s so darn catchy?  They implant in your brain, and there they will remain.  Slowly… Driving you mad.  Until.  You make a CHOICE.

My Beloved, revealed to me.  I can MAKE A CHOICE.  Only I.  Hold the POWER.  2 MAKE A CHOICE and DECIDE what my LIFE will Be.

There IS POWER in making a CONSCIOUS CHOICE vs living on auto-pilot.

Some days, I found my self so zoned out- I must have looked like Rosie on the Jetsons.  You know, that robot maid?

Yes, I do realize.  With that statement.  I might be dating myself.  Some might even go so far as to say “carbon dating” myself, but that’s ok.  Because IT was TRUE.  No Matter.

What I AM saying IS this-

The moment my Beloved asked me that question.  I knew.  No longer, would I be sleepwalking through my Life.  From that moment, my Life began to transform.  While I would like to say, “Habits, Are No Longer the Boss Of Me”.  I have no problem admitting that I AM a work in progress, as Life IS supposed to Be.

Truly Seeing, knowing that I AM responding instead of reacting, and Rising Hi…work together as ONE- to cleanse your MIND, Body, & Soul.

The BEST part of IT all?  This transformation can be as soft as a gentle rain blessing us from an Autumn‘s Sky.

So there you have IT, my friends.  Always had IT.  Without IT, you have never Been.  Glory to God who IS, to all, A BEST FRIEND.

This really is the BEST LIFE ever.

If nothing else, keep this in the back of your MIND.

Dragons, can BE Friends 2.

Take Care & Enjoy the REST of your day!

I will see you again.  Right  Here.  Halfway between the Sun & the Moon.

Here’s to doing One thing.  One thing that makes You happy.  Every Day.  That one thing will lead to another…which will lead to another, and then…Holy Crap!  Life Is Amazing.

Expand your Life.  Expand yourself.  Expand your sense.  Make impossible, I’M Possible!

Believe it or not, I was terrified of changing my windshield wiper.  Me.  Terrified.  Of that.  LOL

No matter if it’s a seemingly little thing, or what you might think is a really BIG thing.  It’s really all the same.  Just take a little step.  Baby steps toddle into a walk before a FULL OUT run!  If you start today, before you know it.  You will be flying 🙂

You can do anything you want to do.  You just gotta believe.  You only need believe IT.  Believe in Yourself.

So what am I going to do with this One, Wild, Crazy, Precious, Original Life O Mine?

Love and the Beloved.

Sweet singing birds melody takes over the sky.

Waves of Peace ripple through me as clouds float lazily by.

Each pause between a lone chirp- takes me deeper.  I know not How, or Why.

Time speeds up as the raucous roar of a beetle thunks clumsily by.

What was that Pant, Rattle, Shake, and Sigh?

Cacophony, becomes Symphony, becomes Solo, becomes…

Just Becomes.

At Zero, Life Truly Becomes

Your Dreams Most Certainly Can

Be Spun.
