focus vs fix

You will really enjoy this. It is always amazing to get in sync with Source.


I just found a little mouse scurrying around the apartment I recently moved into. Yuck! right?


I immediately informed my landlord and started researching natural ways to get rid of it pronto.

drugstore find

One solution was to use camphor. So I purchased some 100% organic mothballs - tablets actually, from the neighborhood drugstore.

blatantly BHAKTI

On my birthday in conversation with Mahala [fave and only child of mine] I declared that with each passing orbit around the sun I choose more and more to be blatantly Bhakti.

Art by Mahala Urra

We both got such a thrill over this that Mahala made this graphic illustration to celebrate the occasion.


I love the balance of this - how very Yin and Yang it is captures who I am. Mahala knows me so well and put this all together visually.

what I love about July

Oh July how I looove you!

You are the month in which I chose to be born - bursting into the sizzling summer sunshine.

I came surrounded by many loved ones and teachers - highlighting my contracted life lessons.

alignment & lining up

I love and have been an advocate of Abraham's teachings for many many many years. 

Abraham is the fountainhead of the information upon which the hit movie, “The Secret” was based.

The collective entity known as "Abraham" channel their messages through Esther Hicks via workshops and lectures on practical applications as well as up-to-the-moment leading-edge expanding information regarding the Law of Attraction.

Over the years Abraham and Esther have tried to give us [humanity] some basics - presenting important integral truths in countless faceted ways so more of us are able to access and accept these. 

Eager as I am to embrace all that's good about the Law of Attraction though I have all too often gotten in the way of my own manifestations on several occasions and instances. 

What an adventure this growing current is then - Law of Attraction's tsunami sweeping around the world. It is just the motivation and inspiration humanity has called forth.

Collectively and individually. Consciously or ingeniously.

There are thousands of books, films, essays and lectures now available to fuel our current paradigm shift in consciousness.

Ask and it is given indeed. Most especially for those in greatest need.

Here is a video clip that may contain some gems for us. 


Happy trails and be well!

national holidays

June 14 was Flag Day in the US.

Betsy Ross Painting - Betsy Ross 1777 by Jean Leon Gerome Ferris

June 12 was Independence Day in the Philippines

The Making of the Philippine Flag by Fernando Amorsolo
I wonder what was going on in these women's minds and hearts as they sewed together what would be the symbol of their nation?

Lost and augmented as their histories have been embellished and now recorded for posterity, we are left to wonder how our current times and leaders will be memorialized and written into our history.

May they live up to all the potential and possibility we hold in our hearts.

pity the nation

Here are two poems of the same title, written years ago, they still capture sentiments of our current times and captivate our present imagination. Time to rediscover who it is we truly are.

heart shards & shattered hearts

Home is where the heart is.
And my heart is the center of my being.


This is the haven in which I live.
This is the sanctuary that houses and nurtures me.

I invite loved ones to come join me.
This is where I learn to love all that I invite in.
It has taken me so long to learn to love.
This is the temple of all that was nurtured and has matured.

I belong here.
As my life belongs to me.

This is the temple of my being.
This is the home of my belonging.

we are the ones that we have been waiting for

Choose love. However challenged we are. No matter how challenging. Stand united in this.


Calling on all change warriors and all of humanity!

What better motivation than world leaders like Trump and Duterte who show us beyond the shred of a doubt what exactly we do not want for our selves and for our world?

Even the most lethargic sedentary sloth feels their heart kindled and ignited today as a result of the unbelievable indignities we are being subjected to.

This is not the time to be passive and invisible. Stand up, awake and arise, be counted and make your life count.

So much anger needs much love. So much pain needs much healing.

Healing not to fix what is broken but heal to preserve our higher nature and protect our world.

We each need to look within ourselves to find true inner peace in order for there to be any hope of peace on earth.

These times bring strong emotions. Use them to motivate and inspire. Not to aggravate and complicate.

Live in the light of wisdom and love. Shine and drive off the darkness of ignorance and lack.

who we remember & what we devote ourselves to

Neil Gaiman is an admired author and a prolific writer that has grown better through the years and aged gracefully in wisdom even in the constant glare of his incessant celebrity.


There's just so much to Neil that we admire!

all by his lonesome

"Back a few months ago, I was headlinin' a great big nightclub
And they put me up a couple days early, I came in a couple days early
And they put me up in what they call the "Star Suite"
Now here I am, headlinin' in one of the biggest nightclubs
In the country and I wake up at eight o'clock in the morning
In this "Star Suite" all by myself"

"Awwww"


"Yeah, that's what I said, "Awwwww."

"But I did what I've always done, man, to cheer myself up
I picked up my guitar, I sat down and I wrote me a little song
Now this is how it feels to be alone at the top of the hill
Tryin' to figure out why."

embracing life

I have always been demanding of myself and others.

Never high maintenance but definitely difficult at times.


I do not concede defeat. Instead I question and challenge.

I like options. I love to choose. I advocate for change.

move, moving, movement

A home of my own is important to my Cancer beingness.

This recent hunt for a new apartment took longer than planned and some of the initial options presented were just too dismal.


Besides I loved my little barrio and was adamant about remaining here. Daunting as it seemed I would not give up.

Persist. Insist. Resist.

friends & relations

People come into your life
for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you will know what to do for each person.
~ Anonymous

Phases of our lives.

Of all our relations friendship is the most valued and valuable.

So fragile and ephemeral and yet the foundation upon which our lives rest and are weighed.

into the fire

"I think the role of the artist is always twofold: One is reacting to your time and the other is chronicling your time." ~ Neil Gaiman

We definitely are living in interesting times. More so than ever this shows up in our lives whether we are aware of it or not. How we show up in our lives now is truly revealing.


Creating a home and a private pocket of my own is a priority for this Cancer Monkey.

Yet recent nesting challenges have been particularly prickly. An emotional roller coaster that has thrown me into dizzying heights and depressing lows as I hunt for another apartment.

My neighborhood for the past six years has grown popular and overpopulated. Making it harder to find a quiet corner in which to roost.

Loving the area too much to budge or seek other options just yet, I feel my breath catch and my muscles knot up as I go through the day's listing with my realtor.

Enough already and let me unpack my stuff from storage and get on with my life!

Due to pressing demands prices have escalated and spaces have shrunk. I'm refuse to give up or give in. Even if it's become harder to lean into these shifting gusts of change.

My current situation feels a lot like a microcosm of the macro upheavals that our nation is going through at the moment.

On the one hand, not having a home whose hatches I can batten down. On the other divide, feeling exposed and vulnerable in this Trump induced chaos.

This change warrior is growing fierce and strong, honed in these extremes.

dreaming the world into being

We came as creators, not to be regurgitators.

It is delicious to take thought beyond. ~ Ahraham-Hicks


All of creation is energy - a combination of vibration and light.

All humans have the ability to dream the world into creation.

We all hold energy that can be made manifest by the power of our intention.

Clarity and discernment are key to the drive and focus that motivate the intent.

How we interpret and direct what motivates us.

How we are driven and at the effect of our emotions.

This dictate our results and outcome.

Learn and educate yourself beyond your circle of comfort and knowledge.

Get curious.

Immerse your Self.

Fiction has two uses. Firstly, it’s a gateway drug to reading. The drive to know what happens next, to want to turn the page, the need to keep going, even if it’s hard, because someone’s in trouble and you have to know how it’s all going to end … that’s a very real drive. And it forces you to learn new words, to think new thoughts, to keep going. To discover that reading per se is pleasurable. ~ Neil Gaiman

Hail Hillary!

March is Women's History Month, when we commemorate the struggle for women's rights and celebrate the political, social, economic and cultural achievements of women throughout history.

The theme of 2017 is "Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business."


Never has that been more important than today here in the US under the misogynistic "the Donald."

anthem to humanity

In the United States, National Anthem Day is every March 3rd, in celebration of the day congress made the "Star-Spangled Banner" our official national anthem, which only happened in 1931.


Prior to that what stirred the spirit of local residents? Before the immigrants came to these native shores what was the unifying call to prayer among local inhabitants and First Nations?

people power

In the Philippines we are now celebrating the 31st Anniversary of the People Power Revolution that ousted former dictator, Ferdinand Marcos.

At the corner of EDSA & Boni

With the current president an avid fan of the Marcos family - who facilitated the burial of this malevolent dictator in our local heroes' cemetery, desecrating sacred ground - sore wounds have opened up and festered once again. 

We have to ask, when will justice be served and can some form of closure be honorably and decently achieved after all these years?

Happy Birthday, President Washington!

This day on February we prefer to celebrate George Washington's birthday since contemplating its other incarnation is just too dismal.

Washington Crossing the Delaware December 25, 1776 by Emanuel Leutze (1851)

Here at Change Warrior, we refuse to celebrate the day as President's Day since our current president [the 45th] is [1] not presidentiable at all in our opinion, and [2] is a pill who has squashed any sort of celebration not dedicated to his most non-magnificent self. 


Washington's Birthday, Fifth Avenue at 23rd Street by Childe Hassam (1916)

where is the love?

Taking a break from all the resistance, revolution, and rallying to focus on some LOVE as we lead up to Valentine's Day celebrations.


What a challenge these times present - leaving us to question, "where is the love?"


At a time when the lack of respect for existence is met with expected resistance on so many facets and levels, remaining openhearted and connected is such a sruggle.

UNfuckingBELIEVABLE!

Impeach Trump already!

It's true that absolute power corrupts absolutely.


It was so with Hitler. It was so with Idi Amin.

It was so with Marcos. It is so with Duterte.

So it is with Trump.

new dawn, new day, new age

In protest against the vileness embodied in Donald J. Trump, people all over the world marched to demonstrate our dissent.

our human super power

By now most of us have heard the farewell speeches of President Obama - filled with honor and grace and inspiring us all.



We have also heard the first ever press conference of Donald Trump since the elections and we all got the gist of what life will be like under him.


As Forbes Magazine prefaces in their article, "What The Trump Era Will Feel Like":

Kali Yuga & our own demons

Kali Yuga is associated with the demon Kali, not to be confused with the goddess Kālī.

The Kali of Kali Yuga signifies strife, discord, quarrel or contention inherent with this age of vice and darkness.

As humans have learned to extend our life spans and discovered ways to ease and comfort our selves, many have turned away from their belief in the God of their heart and the wisdom of age old traditions, banking instead on their discoveries and creations.

Kalki and his horse, Devadatta.

As we move through the ages and evolve in intellectual capability, life span, emotional and physical strength, we are descending into a gradual decline of dharma, wisdom, and knowledge.

My personal interpretation of dharma is the practice of Universal Truth with kindness and compassion.
