Inspiration Peace and Love
Inspiration Peace and Love

Now that I have been officially made NY Director of the UCM, the first thing is getting the September Welcome NY event organized and that means coordinating bakeries and such to donate breads, cookies and goodies for the day, including maybe things like baby bell cheese products. Also there is organizing and coordinating the entertainment, including my performance and bringing in a band as well, coordinating it all. That is just for starters. For the Fall and Winter, I have a number of Interfaith ideas and for 2016 onward community service ideas for youth, vets, the elderly. One area I hope to work on is providing wellness and alternatives to traditional insurance. We need to think outside the box on so many fronts, work together not only for spiritual dialogue and respect, but well beyond that. There is also completion of my Masters, then on to my Doctorate. It’s a great time to be me on the professional front, but I also realize I have to do a lot of delegating, as I am one part of a whole.

What about the personal and relationship aspect of life? I have had to fully release with Agape Love, old cords, cords that caused mainly pain and as we Italians say “agita”, which brought out the worst in me, not the best, the most sensual etc.. in me, but the worst in me because of the pain of the situation and how closed of heart, spirit, soul the other person was. That’s okay, it was a long time, many years in coming. Now, I know what healthy cords and A Pure Love is, a good love is like, one that brings out the sweetest, most peaceful, beautiful, and sensual in me. Even if it has not fully blossomed and come to fruition yet this connection, and even if it doesn’t, it’s a beautiful reminder to me of what a positive connection, cord, etc… is, what it’s like when two people click and fit so perfectly and beautifully right from the get go, playful, natural, organic, sweet from the beginning. It will remind me what it is like when connection from the get go makes you feel so like a woman, even if you have not even been with that person yet in that capacity. It’s a new dawn for me as a person and a woman. I am grateful for this, very much so. It’s a beautiful gift.

 

  The arts, well, that I feel will develop more as my ministry with the UCM develops and as my connection with a particular person develops on the astral, spiritual and actual plane of life and existence, and as I grow as a person. Also with my deeper exploration of nature perhaps, who knows? What I do know is that what I do want is peace in all of it, whether it is the arts, ministry or personal relationships, peace and agape love, sweetness to be a big part of it.

The Arts Help Me Clarify

As an artist and even a person of faith, not religion, but faith, philosophy and spirituality, the arts are an important part of my life and help me on my life journey whether in terms of what I write or songs I love and why I love them.  Both have significance in my life and reflect what I have lived and learned, come to understand about myself and life.  
In terms of songs I love and why, there are three songs I have a particular fondness for, The Rose, I Hope You Dance and Do It Anyway.  These songs are very astute commentaries on love and life because too often because of a childhood event, or an event even in adulthood, a not so healthy relationship choice we made., we cease to trust, we close off and we view emotions, passion, love all that as something to be avoided at all cost, so we either go for relationships that have no future or we avoid taking risk to make reality amazing relationships when we feel intense emtions for that person because we fear it.  We invent all kinds of excuses to ourselves, put up all kinds of walls and never embrace what could be an amazing union and I don’t mean sexual alone, or even sexual, but a connection that just clicks to easily, is so comfortable, flows to naturally from the get go, you just know you are a perfect fit.  Whatever the amazing of it is we might run from it, hide from it because of the past or even our mindset that says there isn’t equal something between us and them, whatever our heads say, completely denying our hearts and spirits, even our bodies, being so in the head we analyze.   We do the same with following our true vocation and dreams, which is sad.  I realize that in my own life I have followed this very same pattern, and only now am I putting an end to that constructively.  I won’t deny myself a connection, relationship, union with someone I truly feel, heart, body, spirit and soul I click, fit with perfectly can envision as my best friend, lover, spouse the whole enchilada due to past hurt, or what is expected of me by others.  I wont deny my truth path as artist and eccumenical minister either just because of what might be religously expected of me.  I have to be me, and that wont sit well with everyone, but not my  problem, theirs to deal with, theirs to process.  
In terms of the songs I write, they also reflect my journey and they reflect one of winding roads, curves and turning corners.  It also reflects one where a not so smart choice was made and held on to in the hearts department, but thankfully wisdom sooner or later comes, when it does Amen!  Now I can fully embrace a flame in my heart, body, spirit and soul that is while very sensual, also very peaceful, beautiful, playful, and natural, organic.   I even  wrote a song about it and just released it on my artist hub today “A Love So Pure”.  I know now very clearlythe person I wish to share the rest of my life with, I also want to be a friend as well as a lover, someone I feel really comfortable and connected to, while also feeling very much like a woman, and very sensual,  just thinking about them.  Does that mean that the person I had a connection with for a long time I hate or wont always love on some level, no.  However I am embracing this new beautiful connection, already have and hope soon they will as well as fully as I am ready to on all levels.  My songs reflect my journey from the past where love was wrenching and painful to now where the experience is sweet and sublime, a different kind of connection and love.  I wish my past connection well, all the best, as the Dolly Pardon song says joy happiness but above all love.  I wish them a love that is sweet, calm, beautiful, sensual and sublime, like I know I have been gifted with and am ready to embrace if the other person is.
