The stains that have leaked from our wounds have embedded themselves down our timeline through our individual yet collective stories. It can be so easy to allow these historical stories and circumstances to write our destiny.It is so easy to believe the self judgments. It's so easy to believe others projected judgments of you. Yet we can and are transcending these old patterns of limitations. We are the architects of our tomorrows.We are still dancing between the archetypes of victim and creators, condemning to accepting, survivalist to authenticity. We are still learning to love ourselves "As We Are" and As we love ourselves "As We Are" we can love all things "As They Are" and as we do we can...

“You're going to meet many people with domineering personalities: the loud, the obnoxious, those that noisily stake their claims in your territory and everywhere else they set foot on.

"A person's approach to sexuality is a sign of his level of evolution. Unevolved persons practice ordinary sexual intercourse. Placing all emphasis upon the sexual organs, they neglect the body's other organs and systems.Whatever physical energy is accumulated is summarily discharged [through orgasm], and the subtle energies are similarly dissipated and disordered. It is a great backward leap.For those who aspire to the higher realms of living, there is angelic dual cultivation [transmutation]. Because every portion of the body, mind, and spirit yearns for the integration of yin and yang, angelic intercourse is led by the spirit rather than the sexual organs.Where ordinary intercourse is effortful, angelic cultivation is calm, relaxed, quiet, and natural.
