HOW TO LET GO AND LET LIVE

HOW TO LET GO AND LET LIVE

HOW TO LET GO AND LET LIVE

In life, if people insist on only fulfilling specific roles, at certain moments, who are you to change them?

Seeking complete satisfaction from one person is a demanding ordeal and not really fair.

Don’t get me wrong: there’s no need to settle for something you’re unhappy with, but perhaps learning to be content with the reality of each instance will help keep you pleased more often. If you continue to focus on what’s lacking, you’ll fail to notice what’s readily available.

Either way, what one person is not willing to provide, someone else will. That’s the way of the world…

Just because you’re not open enough to spot opportunities, doesn’t mean they’re not there!

Attract everything you need by staying real and living truthfully.

By grace, the Universe will give, but you need the freedom and awareness to know when gratitude must be granted.

With love as the power and purity of your existence, keep your energy in line with what you want, let the world reveal itself, and consciously welcome the goodness of your desires manifested.

MASTER TIME TO MASTER YOUR LIFE

MASTER TIME TO MASTER YOUR LIFE

At times, our hearts are hindered by hopes of past dreams: those moments of broken will and lost light.

We mustn’t let darkness deter the chance for a future of change and truth.

With whatever failure you face, always remember to keep your head high and look forward.

HOW IS SEX SOCIAL?

HOW IS SEX SOCIAL?

As sexual creatures, humanity is determined by socially-accepted modes of being. As a way of comfort, we classify people as females or males, but are we mere representations of our private parts? If we think erotically and take no time to think philosophically, we lose the people in between. If we don’t see people for the image they care to portray, we are simply projecting our own prescribed expectations unto others. When we cast our projections unto others, we rob them of their humanity. In this robbing of humanity, we conceive others as nothing more than objects of observation. In turn, we use these objects to help us assess our own existence.

We must recognize each individual as a human being–not a proven model of what a female or a male is expected to be. By estranging this regulated notion of sexuality, we open up new criteria for understanding society. When we are aware of the society we occupy, we come to terms with whatever inherent social pressures are present, pervasive, and prominent.

If we don’t question and dissect, tell me, what else are we doing?

Have Distraction Got You Off Track?

Most of the times we are distracted by things that interest us and that very same thing can cause us from doing the very thing that we are here to do. You must not allow what you can see to distract you from the thing you are not able to see as yet. Remember, where attention goes energy flows. Focus your attention on your intentions.

Critical Writing: So Stylish: Keep it Kooky

So Stylish: Keep it Kooky

When something is queer, it seems odd. When something is stylish, it seems right. Together, what makes for a queer style? Gender roles establish normative attitudes and behaviors. Girls wear pink and boys wear blue—this is how we decipher. Progressively, socially accepted personas are pressured unto society.

Therefore, when people deliberately disturb conventions, the ensuing personas and performances tend to perplex those who are out of touch with certain means of expression.

To illustrate, let’s look at two cases contracted by social norms. First, imagine lesbian haircuts. Now, imagine drag queens. Undoubtedly, if you know what these terms mean, you can paint a fair picture; in other words, lesbian haircuts are as predictable as outrageous drag queens. In light of this, think of all the defined classifications imposed upon society—these supposed “acceptations” and “abnormalities”.

Above all, language defines labels; in turn, these definitions offer specific, customized understandings. If we misconstrue expressions or lack a language to communicate, unknown anomalies are deemed uncomfortable and, for some, even threatening. Nevertheless, language gives us the power to change the terms and influence expression. Collectively, we are responsible for our way with words—we must be wise with how words are interpreted. Even so, instead of dictating what is acceptable or not, let us look to the individual represented by the language their labeled by.

Really, who are we to judge?

Critical Writing: The Path of Poetry

The Path of Poetry

            In the search to understand one’s roots, a true awakening of one’s history and culture is inevitable. My parents are from South America. In their youth, they moved to New York City. There, they met and fell in love. Once they were married, they traveled to Florida to start a family. As a young Hispanic woman, experiencing the diversity of the United States permits a solid appreciation of what possibilities are available.

When asked to research a piece of writing relevant to our ethnic background, I sought the splendors of Hispanic poetry. I held no preference for a specific author or format, but knew the work must have a solid rhythm and flow. Being a woman, I wanted a female writer. Finally, I settled on a website that had a series of direct translations alongside the original Spanish works. I chose the poem “Esto Que Ves”, written by Teresa Aburto Uribe.

Uribe was born in Chile in 1965. She discovered her passion for writing at twelve years old, when she wrote a school play. Her work advanced into the art of poetry; she cultivated her talents by entering several literary competitions to assist in developing her networking skills, along with continued edification.

I selected Uribe and her poem “Esto Que Ves” because she is a Hispanic woman who writes poetry. Being a writer and poet myself, I enjoyed the thought of peering into the creative state of another Hispanic woman. Stylistically, she is to the point; using fierce, yet concise diction. Uribe directs her words, while allowing the reader to interpret each one, using his/her own life as a frame of reference. The structure of the poem pushes the reader to focus, helping the audience undertake the true complexity of each term. The tone of the poem is light and carefree, with strong sentiments of confidence and ability.

Constructed as a plea for self‑discovery and acceptance, this poem notes all the fickle facets of an individual. In mentioning the smallest aspects of behavior, she highlights the overpowering qualities of what it is to be human. For instance, she recognizes that in “un pedazo de ser” there is everything from “risas” to “suenos” to “locuras”. She shifts from these common subjects into vague, yet prevailing matters, such as “humanidad” and “espacio”.

Touching on universal topics like freedom, human interaction, along with the powers of influence and choice, Uribe allows the reader to visualize where he/she falls in the vast spectrum of consciousness. Being mindful of his/her place in life, one is able to ascertain a plan for progress. If one is clueless as to his/her influence on the world, he/she will be incapable of making a difference. Uribe provokes questions, permitting the audience to identify and grow. To do, you must know. When that’s done, let go, and learn to live.

Teresa Aburto Uribe — Chile (Translated by José Wan Díaz)

Esto que vesEsto que ves soy yo,
ni más, ni menos.
Un pedazo de Ser…
un trozo de humanidad…
un puñado de risas…
un montón de sueños.
Una cuota de locura…
un pedazo de dulzura
con toda mi sinceridad.
Esto que ves, soy yo,
ni más, ni menos.
Una mujer, a veces una niña,
a veces espacio…
a veces infinito…
a veces pasión…
a veces libertad.
Pero así, simplemente así soy yo.
Es todo lo que tengo,
todo lo que soy…
No es mucho… pero es todo.
This that you seeThis that you see is me,
no more, no less.
A piece of Being …
a portion of humanity …
a fistfull of laughter …
a pile of dreams.
A share of craziness …
a bit of sweetness
with all my sincerity.
This that you see, is me,
no more, no less.
A woman, sometimes a child,
sometimes space …
sometimes infinity …
sometimes passion …
sometimes freedom.
But like this, I am simply like this.
It’s all I have,
all I am …
It isn’t much … but it’s all.

Poem: My Ode to Thee

My Ode to Thee

My ideal reader will search for meaning, with every aspect or angle set to be analyzed. He will hover over my words, like the twisting of a whirlwind. She will see herself in every single character I create. He will live and dream of every setting I construct. She will sink into every frame I fix for her to face. He will hold my words to his heart, hoping for his truth to harvest. She will sleep with my sheets scattered inside the racking of her skin, soul, and skull. He will hum sweet nothings at the haunting familiarity of my tales. She will trick herself into a fantasy of fantastic freedom, for my words have set her free. All my readers will see themselves, for the mysteries that they be.

–Tatiana Noelle Oquendo

Wake Up! Live in the Moment!

Wake Up! Live in the Moment!

What do you do to keep yourself content with the present?

In reality, the term “time” is simply an invention of man. Beginning as a second and leading into years, time is a continuous flow.

Let air seep into your lungs. Allow the dance of life and death to continue. You are here.

When we realize life is a series of conjoined moments, we can learn to live in the awe and stillness of space and time. Each moment is an opportunity for us to be present.

Live with no regrets, so you will never regret life.

Strive on!
