On Awakening (I pathetically beg you to read)

The Shift

I must let it be known to anyone who is ready for an awakening within themselves or the world, it’s happening in me and it is painful! If you are on a spiritual journey of any kind you have most likely heard of Eckard Tolle and if you haven’t heard of him, you have got to look him up!!

2019

I claimed 2019 to be the year of self-discovery and I had NO idea what I was in for! None, zilch, notta. The pessimist in me prepares for the worse but the journey I am being led down has me experiencing a hurt for the world in our current state of existence. The suffering and pain I am feeling may prove too much to bear.

My assumption was that I would experience sadness from revisiting painful moments that I never allowed myself to fully feel yet I am feeling so much more. Everything I was taught and all I thought about life is being challenged by the spiritual teachings of Eckard Tolle. And I don’t mean challenged as in an argument, I mean for the greater good. The weight of emotions I am feeling I attribute to the pain and suffering being experienced as a collective whole.

At this point, I don’t care if I sound crazy, I have to share so others have the opportunity to tune in. For those who question any belief outside of religion and even those who do not, anyone soul searching, agnostics, atheists, average folks…everyone!! This information is for US and it is in your best interest to take advantage of being taught about the shift happening. It is hard to conceptualize the extent to which things are discussed but I feel his words with every fiber of my being. You will too. Just listen. Don’t think, don’t resist, don’t judge, but don’t say I don’t warn you about the difficult realizations you will have.

This isn’t a scam to get you to follow a person and his beliefs, this is the way back to our true selves. He goes in depth about ego, our idea of God, our brains, our consciousness, and more. You don’t have to be intelligent or rich or white or any of that bullshit for this information to impact you.

Stop making that face! Have faith!

This isn’t some new modern shit that will fade away rather a shift that must happen in order for us as a species to continue moving forward and it’s happening whether we like it or not.

People use the term millennial to disguise the first generation the shift has impacted in a blanketed fashion. Older generations are doubtful because it puts everything they were taught and taught in the spotlight as wrong (language..more on that) but this isn’t about being right or wrong, this is about healing as a whole. Believe me, I’m the last one to advocate for our species because in my opinion, we are fucked and we did it to ourselves. This approach is much kinder.

There are no fees, no membership, and no, it isn’t witchcraft or a cult nor is it a belief system that threatens you to flames, condemning you to hell on the basis of decision. This is a legit explanation, to the extent, our minds can conceptualize, as far as our existence in the human form is concerned.

Naturally, some will want to challenge this notion but the catch is your words may spew challenges but if you live by this teaching, there is no denying the truth behind it. Not one person can do as suggested and prove error.

That’s a bold statement especially for someone like myself. I don’t just believe what I am told. I am doer, a leader, and a woman who has experienced pain and grief to the extent of losing my sanity.

Adaptation

We developed words to guide us in communicating and somewhere along these lines we began to use these words to define who we are, what we are supposed to do according to these roles, and that’s where we went wrong. The language of love is all we need and because of a language we developed, we couldn’t be any further from our original being. We use words and labels to define our surrounding and in terms of what’s right and what is wrong, this is right. How do I know? I don’t know. It’s a feeling. I’ve never felt so right in my life. Another huge statement!

I am using terms we are familiar with that describe what it is that is happening within me. I am not saying you are wrong in your beliefs. I am speaking from my perspective but I challenge you to make it yours. Process it how you will but take the action it takes to implement the suggestions.

What really convinces me of this theory is the fact there is no insult to other opinions in order to put emphasis on this way of operating. There are no side effects other than tears and a bit of confusion but compared to the ones Big Pharma would have us all on, that’s nothing!! And these are second to the feelings I have about this….and you all know, I NEVER TRUST MYSELF. My intuition has spiked off the charts as though my inner child is pushing me to be set free. If I’ve never trusted myself before, I do now.

Normally I would be hesitant to share anything that goes against the grain and this doesn’t even do that!!! All you are required to do is be present, sit with your emotions as they occur, and move on with the next minute. Don’t get me wrong, those simple ideas are hard to do when our world screams instant, now, immediate, fix, cure, solve and even better…the promise of happiness. Never one time does he use words to make promises or glorify the end result. Why? Because it speaks for itself.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it twice I require used to require words for others to understand me and I revoke each and every time I thought or said so. I do not need to be defined. I am. It is our very words that are causing us to melt. This makes total sense of the decline in mental health.

As I explore the present moment I truly realize it is all we have. Saying so and knowing so are two different things. My journey has only begun but I have hope whereas I hadn’t prior to discovering Eckard Tolle. I share this information with y’all because I know we all struggle most especially within the mental health community and I will promote this until my last breath.

I share because I care! Give it a chance…you have nothing to lose!! And if you do, make sure you pass on what his teachings have done for you.

An Extensive Guide Defining 62 Terms of Stationery

An Extensive Guide Defining  62 Terms of Stationery

Let’s begin by acknowledging the other form of the word stationary which means to stand or stay in one place, not moving.  The spelling of the two is different by one letter. Make sure when you are discussing stationery, as discussed here on Revenge of Eve, you use the spelling with the ‘e’.  I wouldn’t feel this was necessary but I have seen it misspelled being used in this context quite a few times.

Although my love of paper and office supplies can be traced back to my childhood,  I never knew the extent of the terminology that defines it. To be honest I wasn’t aware that stationery included office supplies.  I innocently thought it to be pretty, decorated or personalized paper pad/notebooks. See even I learn something every day!

That leads to the research behind this in-depth post, defining 62 terms of stationery.  Be sure to comment if I have left something out. By no means do I have it all figured out.  Y’all ready?

Let’s do this thang:  Beginning with the definition of stationery.

Stationery is a mass noun referring to commercially manufactured writing materials, including cut paper envelopes, writing implements, continuous form paper, and other office supplies.  It includes materials to be written on by hand or by equipment such as computer printers.

Previous S.Y.K. questions (my answers)

As a parent do you feel safe leaving the world in your children hands? Explain why or why not? I feel as though I will leave behind an intelligent, independent, proactive, emotionally stable being. As far as the world being a safe place, that will not happen as long as humans exist and have free will. It isn’t the world I worry about being safe as much as I hope my child is safe.

*If you are child-free, do you feel we (humans) are heading in the right direction, as a whole? I think a lot more beings are waking up to the fact that there is damage that has been done. As far as it stands now, I feel like it is more damage control verses moving in the right direction. Awareness is key and we are slowly getting there.

*What do you consider the biggest difference in your generation and your parents generation? Compare the two using a positive impact and its negative effects. In my personal instance my mother is a baby boomer born in 1955. Between us the biggest difference is communication. The way she was raised children and more specifically women were meant to be seen, not heard. The complete opposite is true of my generation. Its negative effects lead to assumptions, confrontation instead of conversation. and silent resentments. This is very unhealthy and extremely so for those of us in substance abuse recovery.

*Do you feel like an old soul? Or a youngster? Why? Ooooo well.. A Youngster of course but the way I’ve always been pissed at the world, I know I’ve done this before.

*What era would you chose to live in if given the chance? If given the chance I wouldn’t chose this realm, ever. No generation could entice me enough…if given the choice. I would simply reply, “None. No thank you”.

About tomorrow

I am slowly waking up to the fact that all we have is now. It is easy to say but the process is odd, uncomfortable, and confusing. There are things that are lining out that I never knew were wrinkled and many of the things I thought were one way, have been turning out another way. I do my best to not attach expectations to situations. It turns out much better that way but what about tomorrow? Will it come? When it does, will we understand more?

There is a shift happening y’all and if you can’t feel it, try too. There is a ton of activity surrounding us. Please do not shrug and chalk it up- just allow yourself to be. Don’t think. Only breathe. Then tell me what you felt. Maybe you’ll be better at describing it.
