Twilight Haven

My thoughts, musings and the wanderings of my mind.

Being Stable != Okay

Popular misconception: Being stable or getting by with life does not equate to being “okay”. Having your wounds bound or not being in utterly critical condition does not equate to being healthy and happy. Having to maintain defensive shields to get by is definitely not “okay”. Whatever one’s shit is, this assumption has to go. The belief that because you can plaster a smile on and carry on a conversation, do the shopping and be nice to the random strangers on the street for 30 seconds without having some kind of psychotic episide that you’re some kind of “okay”. Bills paid, fridge full, and death count nill is NOT okay, it’s maintaining god damn survival status! And if you think THAT’S “okay” then you’ve got your sense of mental and spiritual health triage royally fucked up.

The art of war teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy's not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him; not on the chance of his not attacking, but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable. — Sun Tzu

Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look on them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death. — Sun Tzu

Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate. — Sun Tzu

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
Every human has four endowments - self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change. - Stephen Covey

When having children becomes unconventional then survival becomes revolutionary.

I’ve always had a love for language, words, and the learning thereof.

Awww the Blue Tailed Skink is gone extinct, at least in the wild. I did a report on this guy back in grade school lol. Can't remember when. I just remember the species.

Politics! Sex! Religion! Philosophy! OMG!

Look let’s just get something straight here, while I may not be posting most of my activist stuff here, I don’t censor myself either. And yes I do think about politics and philosophy quite a bit. While I’m not going to go in depth and turn this into a kinky fetish site and post tons of porn here (yet ;-) ) I’m still a sexual being and do think about sex and won’t censor that e ither. While I post MOST of my spiritual stuff on my Blessings of the Blue Tiger site I’m still going to post the odd bit of spiritual stuff here, or I may post some religious commentary or rant.

This I understand may bother some people. Guess what? I don’t care. This is my personal site. If I know you then you can contact me directly. If I don’t know you then your opinion is meaningless. And either way I did not build these sites to impress but rather to express.

And if you are one to call me friend then you would want to ask and know me better rather than judge and make assumptions. Therefore if something provokes you then ask.
