Today, I am slightly socially awkward yet considerate. Engaging and intelligent, but not an arrogant individual. I'm open minded but I also value logic. I am not above questioning anything I don't understand or that doesn't quite make sense in my mind. Knowledge is very important to me, and the pursuit is never ending.

I'm highly spiritual, but only in the sense that I have a very strong belief in it. I have no spiritual gifts any more than the next person does but I believe in the potential of humanity to learn certain things. I place immeasurable value on inner growth and evolution and using our time on this Earth to not only benefit ourselves, but also the lives of others. I am an eternally spiritual being in a temporary human experience.

Focus on one's self is important to a healthy life. This is a lesson I learned recently, and am working to balance myself, with the needs of others. I'm an extremely helpful person, sometimes to the point where I forget to help myself. I've been told there's no such thing as good advice. So far, the only complaint I have is when they don't understand it or when they don't want to hear it. I'm also learning to not put my nose where it doesn't belong.

"I can't run away from what's inside. But I can change it. I know this. I just don't know how. Someday the shell will fall away and I will truly emerge. But I'd rather have the choice of what comes out and faces the world, and when."

And I did. I had to walk through hell and torment to burn away the scars of my mind. I had to stand on the edge of it all, and look into the abyss, and face what was staring back, and accept it. Since then I've stopped merely surviving and have started Living. And since then, I have learned my purpose.

I am a Teacher of Self. A Healer of the Heart. An Inspirator of Life.

I do not want to be the Hero. Nor a Savior. I just want to help. To assist others in learning how to develop a healthy respect for themselves, and how to see the magic in their lives. To find their balance, and forge their own path.

If I had to describe myself in three words:

i, Am I.

I chose these three words because they emulate the very essence of me. The first word, is of course, myself. I have it lowercase to represent the I that you see here today that inhabits this plane. The one that has much to learn. The other two words form a sort of duality between being and what I am being. The I is capitalized, to represent the ultimate I. The I that is eternal and perfect in myself. The I that I am striving, admittedly some times harder than others, to be.

I've come to believe, over the last year or so, that time is paradox. The past only has power when we think of it. And the future only has substance when we look ahead.
But in reality, we only ever experience THIS moment. Now. Which actually never ends and never beings. It simply is. This is the only place we ever truly reside. Given this, conceivably, there is no need for past or future beyond our need to categorize our daily experiences.

I'm of the believe that the 'past', the present, and the 'future' are all happening simultaneously, and all possible realities also exist in the same way.

The importance of being aware of Now, is that all steps and decisions are made, in the now. When you are not aware of Now, you do not give your full attention to the things you are doing in the only time you ever experience that ever affects anything.

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
