The Thank You Award… A Million Thanks!



Dear Kitty.  Some Blog has been so kind to nominate Moonlightened Way for the Thank You Award.

It’s such a delight to be appreciated!  So a million thank-you’s back to you!

The rules of this award are:

1. As usually a big thank you and a link back to the person who nominated you.

2. Mention 5 things you would like to do with your life, no matter how mad or tame.

3. Nominate six bloggers, link to them and say why they have left their mark on you. Hence the name “The Thank You Award”.

4. Let them know.


Five Things I Would Like to Do:

1)  Inspire someone.

2)  Finish and publish at least one novel.  (I have drafts, but… meh.)

3)  To know that I’ve in some way made a difference for the better in this world.

4)  Make friends with my own mind.

5)  Visit Ramana Maharshi’s ashram.

The Blogs I Nominate:

The Bard on the Hill – Dennis’s blog has led me to some of the most beautiful poetry in which I find my own inspirations.

Known is a Drop, Unknown is an Ocean – I enjoy the like-mindedness of this spiritual blog.  A wonderful source of information and inspiration.

Joy in the Moments – Charissa’s blog has been an inspiration to me as a writer.  It was because of Charissa that I pursued my first self-publishing venture!  Her blog is both informative and whimsical.

I realize this list is truncated but I haven’t been devoting as much time to blogging and I’m a little behind.

Thank you again and thank you to WordPress.

Stop and THINK: I Am Not Just a Woman


VESPERTINA by Greg Spalenka

I am not “just a woman”.  I am no more and no less a human being than a man.  My gender, my genitalia have nothing to do with the quality of my mind, my heart, or my soul.  Yet the societies I’ve lived in insist because of these things I am somehow less.

I know who I am.  I am That Which Is manifested in a body.  I am the same “That” which you are beneath and beyond the fabric of this body.  That which is the True Reality, that which is honored as the most sacred, the One.  The only thing that separates any of us is mere thought.  Just a thought.  Nothing more.  Yet some of these thoughts have caused more destruction than any weapon or any war because this thought is a time-honored lie:  a woman is less than a man.

This is because mankind is taught not how to think, rather taught thoughts to think.  These thoughts become repeated from generation to generation, without contemplation, and recited as absolute truths.  Many of them, such as this thought, are reinforced by holy men, governments, educational institutions, families and peers.  This is programming.  This is not truth.

A woman, a female human being, is only less-than a man because she’s been programmed to believe it.  Thankfully, historically, many woman have refused to buy into this lie and have contributed much to humankind.  Many more simply follow the customs.  So many more minds left stuffed in a cage because they are “less-than’s”.  How simply sad and wasteful.

To be viewed this way by others, as this “less-than”, is painful and it’s aggravating.  It can be debilitating.  But, the centuries of programming won’t change easily.  All we can do as women is be authentic and not fall victim to this mind-numbing lie that has been programmed into humanity.  We are not objects, we are not property, we are not less than anyone else unless we choose to agree.  We are not the source of all evil.  True evil lies between the ears not within a chromosome.

Stop and THINK.  I implore you.  As a woman, stop and THINK before you begin to define yourself as a “less-than”.  As a man, stop and THINK before you define a woman as something less than you are.  Just STOP.  And THINK.

And when you do, ask yourself how many more perspectives you hold are nothing more than thoughts you were taught.  How many more destructive lies do you believe that keep you and society repressed?

This Man Could Very Well Save the World: Allan Savory

If you’re not familiar with the term “desertification” I would highly recommend watching this video.  Why should we care about it?  Desertification has been responsible for wiping out entire civilizations in the past and it’s no speculation that it will be the destruction of a lot of the life on this planet if it’s not reversed.  It’s a fact.

Allan Savory is a man on a mission:  To save the planet.  And he’s going to do it.  He’s already got documented large-scale successes.  Watch, learn, and see what he’s doing.

This is a perfect example of how not complacently buying into current paradigms can have a dramatic and positive impact on the lives of all of us!
