A Different Perspective

A Different Perspective
I'm Cruising Jay Park's "Welcome" Video, And I'm Realizing I'm Seeing An Asian Love/Sex Scene For The 1st Time In My Entire Life. And Once I Was Fully Present To The Total Asian-ness--And Korean-ness, Specifically, Of It--And Gorgeousness Of It, Like Lickety Split, I Sat There In Horror As My Next Thought Was, Almost Immediately, "Oh My GOOOOOODDDD!!!--Just Don't Put It In The BABY BOXXXXXXX...FOR THE LOVE OF GOOOOOOODDDDDD!!!!!!!" No "LOL" On That, Either. (Image Of Jay Park Courtesy Of The WWW/"L.A. Weekly"'s Hot-As-Hell Shoot) -Sat./June 30, The Year 2018

Big Ups!

The City Of Dubuque's Citizen's (Police) Academy (Dubuque, IA)(2017)
Bored, stuck in Dubuque, waiting out the laying down of the Universal Hand, I followed up my Ride-Along last Fall with the 21st Annual C.A. for our city, thinking it was a big picture, 10-week, Thursday night class in City Operations and the role of Law Enforcement in quality of life. It was actually a course in policy, procedure, and hands-on learning experiences in Law Enforcement itself, complete with encouragement to get sprayed (OC-style--The pepper kind)(i.e. "It's just a spritzer!"), as well as another Ride-Along (on a different shift). An excellent, much appreciated immersion in yet another world untouched by my academic, holistic, spiritual, and worldly studies, perfectly timed in applicability to considerations in Business, Loss Prevention, my own shala, Law/Graduate School, and life experiences, in general, including those shared on this website with Law, Law Enforcement, and city infrastructures in this country.

The City Of Dubuque's/Human Rights Department's Intercultural Competency Leadership Training (Dubuque, IA)(2014)
At their request, so bravo to them, bravo to me. Provided presence, experience, background, & feedback, while simultaneously taking in, getting updated, refreshing past (academic & other) learning, & showing up to add Love Yoga: The Movement/Amy Jin flava to the current diversity-improving model that has already started infiltrating City Government, businesses, institutions of learning, & organizations of all kinds via rocking choice, recognizing a next step needing to be established in consciously evolving Dubuque's intolerant, ignorant, & bigoted past, setting an example for the world.

Come to Class!:

  • ~September 27th, 2012: Love Yoga: The Movement is now endorsed by NICC and is being considered for regularly scheduled class times and within-the-semester-system presence on both campuses, based on leaders from the school's personal experience in class. Look for additional class times & learning opportunities as they become available! Big ups to Northeast Iowa Community College for supporting enlightenment and higher intelligence with both feet in!
  • ~~UPDATE: TH./October 4th, 2012: Word is NICC is not interested in adding anymore "Fitness" classes to their system, 4 the time being. I said, "Yeah, Power Yoga is Fitness if fitness means your whole life!" Oh well. It is what it is.
  • -The Dubuque Community YM/YWCA has been abandoned as of SAT./12.14.2013. Jill Scott's song "Slowly Surely" is thematic to Love Yoga: The Movement's practice location needs today.
  • P.S. A householder cannot be a yog, by definition. And history. And the truth about it today. Especially here (this country). The best you can do is live and practice within its teachings, like anything, and let your heart lead the way from there. I hope you do. It has produced too many miracles for me not to say so.
  • **DUBUQUELAND/THE WESTERN WORLD: Fair warning--though those involved have already been warned!--There are far more false yogs in this country than people truly on a path of self-knowledge and Truth. Oftentimes, "teachers" are not even certified. Please ensure that they know what the bejesus they're doing be4 running around saying you're practicing yoga. What it looks like, to any Eastern person, no matter how Americanized said person may be, is that there has been a hostile takeover of something ancient & sacred that belongs to US by a bunch of looney toon idiots who would happily bastardize something rich & powerful by making it insane & fraudulent--not to mention all-around ugly. Karma always doth cometh.**
  • ***M/6.2.2014: The Practice Of Love Trumps All Things--Dubuqueland/Iowa/Midwestern authentic peops who R in it to win it, I think you're about to see a practice schedule here in a healthy, sane setting that will lend itself to true connection, sans all the inhibiting forces, to help you become perfected in your physical-mental-emotional-soul-Source-thru-Earthness. As always. There are so many of you on the planet right now capable of so much Good. Develop yourself via will so long as U live.***
  • ****At long last! Starting M/JUNE 16, The Year 2014!!! NEW!--THE DUBUQUE ARBORETUM PAVILION (3800 Arboretum Drive, Dubuque, IA 52001, $17 Drop-In (Cash Or Check For Now), $14 For (Bring Proof!) Students, First Responders, & Veterans. UPDATE! SU/6.22.2014: Love Yoga: The Movement has some Mega-Guardian Beings. Your 1st class is *GRATIS!* to help everyone experience this class. Additional Love Offerings are always welcome for both Love Yoga: The Movement & The Arboretum from The Movement. Feel free to ask about the Team/5-Or-More-Affiliated-People discount:
  • *Bring your own mat! Min. 4 per class! Payment will be taken, upon reception, before class. Sign-in will include signing off on an "I-take-full-responsibility-for-my-health-&-safety-during-this-practice" acknowledgement. We will change, flow, & adapt for the Good Of All as we go, so walk, run, 2-wheel, & carpool to class, & if this area is to become a home to a founding Love Yoga: The Movement shala, it will become a reality from here.*
  • -M/5:45-7:15P-The ORIGINAL Dubuqueland ALL LEVELS EXPERIENCE!--Ashtanga-Based, Santa Monica Power Yoga!
  • -W/5:45-7:15P-All Levels
  • -TH/10:30A-NOON-All Levels
  • *****And then, just like that, by the same treachery as always, life & Santa Monica Power Yoga evacuate the area due to fear & lack that characterize "normal" there. Ask current practitioners for the skinny, & read what happened in my writings below right. Love Yoga: The Movement has left the Dubuqueland area as of F/7.5.2014*****
  • ******MINNESOTA, I look forward to serving you, if nothing else, because I like the way you speak. I'm available for Personalized & on-site work, classes, workshops, & events in the Red Wing, MN area. Please contact to schedule, including such learning experiences which require scheduling & travel. Gratitude.******
  • *******HMM...It's hard to serve Minnesota when you have to go back to Iowa & CONSIDER LEAVING THE COUNTRY because it's BUNK!!!*******
  • ********Tick tock, tick tock...Waiting for an impeccable space from which to teach the Power Within...SU/12.6.2015
  • *********W/JULY 20, 2016: Nothing like a 2 year pause button to teach from the mean streets in these times, fighting for my life and this Movement, in "crisis," with some spotty Personalizeds with shady aspirants, in the meantime. Meeting tomorrow, everyone. Downtown Dubuque, Iowa. SU/9.4.2016: Nobody's home so far, peops. Well--LOL--except me.



New Paradigmatic Enlightenment Services:

This Movement is committed to the spiritual power of individuals who are dedicated to their own spiritual growth and existence while they R here. Therefore, all prices are negotiable for those who desire to become more enlightened, ascended, Christ or Buddha-like, and additional donations are always welcome towards this informally begun non-profit Movement.

If U are sincere and have pure intentions, you will immediately be seen for that. These prices reflect an acknowledgment of the capitalistic society in which we live, believes that the best in class deserve to be paid accurately 4 their gifts, and that, in an ideal society, the enlightened would flow money power, if such a thing even existed. It also believes that $ means nothing to the truly powerful, but creating Utopia, so to speak, according to the rules until they R different, is also the place to be.

I find that my practitioners/students who invest and do the work, individually, with me, especially in conjunction with regular attendance to the asana classes I lead, see tremendous benefit, including pretty immediate "huge" revelations, releases of pent-up emotion, a "synchronistic" or miraculous event, or a job promotion, to name a few.

  • · LEARNING (Ashtanga-based)(Santa Monica) POWER YOGA &/or MEDITATION (with many types of influence—primarily Zen Soto [Buddhist], New Age/Metaphysical, & “the kind yogis do in class”) WITH ME-$85 4 1 Personalized Lesson. U may purchase a pre-paid group of 10 sessions for $800 (8-mo. expiration from date of purchase, intended, ideally, for use within 1.5-2)(Non-refundable, non-transferable, however, unused sessions may be donated to other students in financial need prior to their expiring). No “traveling” fees in this Movement, except over 20 miles.
  • · EMF BALANCING TECHNIQUE (Phases I-IV) and SPIRITUAL ILLUMINATION SESSIONS-Advanced Energywork connected to the Indigo and Crystal Children Phenomenon, also known as the "Martial Art Of The Heart," and Spiritual Teaching & Guidance Sessions-for truth & healing to the center of your being from an “awakened forerunner Indigo/Crystal Child” (That means “Spiritual Luminary with a high level of spiritual acumen & accuracy”). Typical topics that emerge or are brought to the latter are Work, Relationships, Life Purpose, Core or Untapped Gifts, including Spiritual ones, and past hurts that require higher perspective to be unwound into free-flowing energy. $200 per session (Typically, 1 hr.-1 hr. and 15 min.).
  • · SPIRITUAL ILLUMINATION-BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT and IMPROVEMENT FROM WITHIN for sole proprietors to corporations. Cost depends on project & can be adapted to fit your budget. Please inquire.
  • Cash, check, & money orders are acceptable methods of payment. Amy Jin may be reached at with inquiries or to schedule.
  • Spiritual Illumination Sessions can be done in person, by phone, and also in writing (electronically or hand-written). Energywork can also be done over the phone.

Please be aware that there are also those listed who since have been terminated, in regard to their relationship to myself and/or Love Yoga: The Movement but, by my choice, will continue to be listed until I determine to axe all mention of them. As always, may all beings receive their due and righteous karma. As a Catholic schoolgirl, I learned it was once said, "Whatsoever U do to the least of my people, that U do unto me." It wasn't mentioned what would happen when U hurt or harm one of the most significant souls, or on that same token, help them, because it hopefully requires no explanation:
  • *Hmm-mm.

The 2013 Honorable Love Offerers of Love Yoga: The Movement

  • Wal-Mart-Dubuque, my hometown's location of the American retail giant (Dubuque, Iowa): A gift certificate ($) to provide all-natural/organic food for the upcoming Ashtanga/Power Yoga Film Pow-Wow & to Love Yoga: The Movement, in general! Thanks to Jennifer, Cash Manager, for taking the time to hear my vision, the resistance to help by other Food & Grocery people in town, & taking about 3 seconds to respond enthusiastically that "Yes!" they'd help and "Thanks for all you're doing!" in a society where genuine gratitude is a rarity. Now, that's Power Yoga leadership. Way to step up to the mic, Wal-Mart!
  • Brett Albarado***, fellow Light bringer (Seer, Channel, Reader...), former colleague at the "The-Indigo-Children-Will-Need-2-Get-Their-Own-Movement!" Unity School of Christianity at Unity Village, MO, multi-purpose Maintenance Mechanic, vehicular healer, & an all-around amazing incarnate Angel (Red Wing, Minnesota): $$$ donated to Amy Jin, Love Yoga: The Movement, & the spread of wise, conscious, intelligent creation of the world's future, from ground up, as a celebration of the existence of universal love that transcends belief.
  • Monks Kaffee Pub* (Dubuque, Iowa): An original, A&E & consciousness-supporting concept on Bluff Love Offering the space and media equipment for our Love Yoga: The Movement May 26th Ashtanga/Santa Monica Power Yoga Film Pow-Wow & Satsang, giving everyone another home off our yoga mats!
  • Bill Finn, President of Scorpio Productions & one of the first "regular" Power Yoga practitioners in this area! (Dubuque, IA): For being the bridge that led to the connection for the event with Trish Feldman, Monks Kaffee Pub's awesome Co-Owner, who relayed, "They're TOTALLY excited to host it!" Music & chai officially makes the world go 'round.
  • David C. Moeller*, Lead Tech Coach for the Dubuque Community School District & dedicated, front-row practitioner in practice! (Dubuque, IA): $ given with gratitude, in class & with class, to Amy Jin & Love Yoga: The Movement for the spread of Is-ness on the planet.
  • Anonymous (4 now)!***, Food leader of the new paradigms represented by Love Yoga: The Movement (Dubuqueland, IA): $ generously given in faith to The Movement, exemplifying keeping one's word, leadership by example, the power of right alliance, & working positive karma in integrity. Cheers to alliances kept solid thru enlightenment & real effort on both sides. "Clean food" is also about chi. Think "U R what U eat."

The 2014 Love Offerers' Wall Of Celebration & Is-ness--

  • Brett Albarado***, Maintenance Mechanic, Aspiring Power Yogi!, & embodiment of Faith in the Truth (Red Wing, Minnesota): $ above & beyond the Suggested Love Offering for individualized work, as a way of giving & expressing love naturally & perfectly, & funding to help establish the 1st Tapas Workshop in this area as fact!
  • Frank Bonacci, one of a cast of all high-caliber professors chosen, but Amy Jin's 1st! English prof, at DePaul University, now a Grant-Writer, a certified teacher of Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, AND a steadfast practitioner of Love Yoga: The Movement's Work! (Schiller Park/Chicago, IL): $ in Scholarship & Love Offering toward the "LOVE YOGA: THE MOVEMENT’S VISION: On Life & Flow—The Tapas Of A Modern Day Yog/ini" Workshop & the continuation of brilliance all over the world, moving on inspiration, producing results, as dedication always does.
  • Wal-Mart-Dubuque (Dubuque, Iowa): Sadly, Jennifer's gone, but Wal-Mart has stepped up again this year to provide a little charitable $ love after our "On Life & Flow" Workshop, thanks to Karen K. & the Accounting crew! Eventually, I'd like all area businesses, big & small, on board with eco-friendly, happy, healthy reality-creation. Our Tapas couldn't be more needed or relevant today. A bow of gratitude to one of the only places whose prices I still trust on organic, all-natural, vegetarian sustenance.
  • The beautiful Dubuque Arboretum (Dubuque, Iowa): This venue, under the leadership of Sandi Helgerson, Executive Director, has offered a "supporting landlord" place (more like support that's otherworldly) to put Ashtanga-based, Santa Monica Power Yoga classes back on the map in Dubuqueland/the Midwest! after many months without a physical location to call "home." The magic, peace, and perfect partnering of this space--a strong presence & opportunity to experience natural beauty in the city for 33 years on volunteers alone--with the destiny of this Movement has infinite potential in both synergy and spark for both individuals and our nation.

2015 People Who "Get It"--Love Offerers Who Keep The Lights On!

  • Frank Bonacci, one of all high-caliber professors chosen, but Amy Jin's first English prof, at DePaul University, now an independent Grant Writer & seminar provider, with experience in grant-writing in Mental Health, a certified teacher of Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, & a steadfast practitioner of Love Yoga: The Movement & enlightenment on the planet (Schiller Park/Chicago, IL): $ funding safe spiritual refuge in 2015, in clearly hostile territory.
  • ...and many others who have stepped forward and have yet to claim recognition, representing Kansas City, Phoenix/Scottsdale, Dubuqueland, IA, & all the places you've gone to school, lived, worked, & called home before...You prove that there are everyday heroics--of all Races, nationalities, religious backgrounds, occupations, economic statuses, educational levels, etc.--being performed every day by "everyday citizens" that effectively battle that which hurts, harms, and takes innocent & important lives, with the kind of love we are all meant to give and receive. You are heart-blooming awesome and are literally changing my 2015 and the course of my life through the love you show, in the absence of all of those who were supposed to be there but turned to shadow, instead.

2016 Love Yoga: The Movement Backers Of The Year:

  • Frank Bonacci, one of all high-caliber professors chosen, & Amy Jin's first English prof at DePaul University in Chi-town, Grant seminar Trainer, certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, in the lineage of Yogi Bhajan, & powerful practitioner of Love Yoga: The Movement's ideals & enlightenment on the planet (Schiller Park/Chicago, IL): $ & complete moral support, creating the gift of safe, spiritual sanctuary, again, which is becoming harder & harder to find. All the more reason to stand tall and staunchly in conviction that bases itself in the Truth. The existence of F.Bonacci should make all Italian(-American)s and Brazilian(-American)s proud of their peops.
  • well as others in this (final) time of protected class refuge and bigger Decision. There are no words for trust met with solidity. My only demand is that it stop being the exception to the rule.

2017 Love Offerers To Love Yoga: The Movement!:

  • Anonymous, L.A. native and positive connect of Amy Jin's and to Civil Rights leadership in the U.S. of A. (Kansas City, MO): "$100 in honor of Amy Jin Schmelzer to the Kenya Service Trip at Clarke College, Dubuque." $

The New BBB

I have had some really bad run-ins, I'll say since 2002, from all aspects of the "real world"--escalating to unfathomable heights within the past few years.

I have called upon major newspapers, local law enforcement, "corporate" heads, the Health Dept., the Better Business Bureau, politicians, their assistants,, etc. etc. etc., following all of the proper channels, escalating as necessary, to report things such as spiritual, racial discrimination, bullying, sexual harrassment, wrongful termination, racial profiling, fraud, shady selling techniques, a failure to stand behind their product(s) or service(s), amongst others (crimes, that is), & I have to tell you that from the Heartland (Dubuque, Kansas City)(, now Phoenix) to L.A., no one's answered the call. Literally. No one's doing their job, but they're also keeping me from having one.

Well, having won the battles I've chosen to engage in, to prove a point about principle in said systems, in regard to corruption in traffic court, the Unemployment system, other "yoga studios," & my "career"--whatever that is for a true yogi or 4 me, at this pt.--& also in my personal relationships, there is still a need to expose these people 4 the same reason the Better Business Bureau used to--which is to protect conscious people from falling into the wrong hands--because now this stuff's in their track record, & nobody wants to relay that data to U.

It seems if you come to call too much, they think U'r the issue. What if the person is actually, & unfortunately, 100% right and accurate every time?

So, in an attempt to give people what they really need--the truth, the whole truth, & nothing but the truth, so help us God--from certain people appearing good-natured but quite opposite behind your back, the way they spread lies or warnings or "no's" about me because they can't answer to the excellence I'm holding, or because they have been a stagnant, cheating, energy & idea stealing, if not stealing altogether, needs-to-be-ended business or entity overrun by a lack of spirituality, virtue, &/or their own mission or values for way too long, I'm more than happy to provide a list--like PETA--of "boycott, do not work 4, & do not support with anything positive" the places that have literally slammed the door in the face of a complete person erring on the side of goodness, merit, & the rules all of us played by--or were supposed to--growing up, in school, in sports (at least in this country) or whatever meant possibility & achievement of becoming "the best" to you.

The list will include both employers & for-profit & non-profit companies, orgs, & notable people who don't take kindly to me, this Movement, or those on a spiritual path being allowed to live, in general--at least not where they're at!

As always, no hostility. My vote's been cast. They should close their doors, from top down, all their employees forced to live in cardboard boxes 4 a set period of time, preferably on a piece of land not really desired by anybody & not part of the United States. But if U'd like to help them, integrate their energy into your daily life, &/or keep throwing your money at them, as though these things don't coalesce into bigger problems such as scandals, lawsuits, people getting hurt (on purpose & not), etc., do I really need to get a bucket of popcorn & sit in lotus position on a park bench & watch? More?

And if U'r also one of the people in this country who allows this kind of s**t to go on without standing up to it or 4 what's true, U might as well join them. In the cardboard boxes, that is.

I mean, my 1st thought when some random fitness person on 'roids (Yes, it was a girl, yes, it was a retired, former policeman & his scary-looking daughter or sex kitten. I couldn't tell) threatens me in any way while I'm practicing asana or some whacked out geek who ranks at about, oh, 4, maybe 3, in his personal life in every category, won't employ me because he knows I can see the drugs he just did last night but won't hurriedly send my Resume up the ladder, either, cuz, no matter how many places I've walked from or how much crap life has thrown at me to see what I'd do with it, his 1st thought, because of THEIR situation, not mine, was that I was their savior walking through the door--my first thought is, for example, my potential students. I would never, EVER, in the name of all that is holy on Earth & beyond, think of bringing ANYONE into a place & open up the energy in that space for Source's work or healing that allows or o-kays the belittlement, harrassment, or destruction of a holy person or holy activity. I don't care if it's practice or what. And when said moron--My bad if he's your Dad--is like that, I want him put behind bars. For murder. Of a holy person. Through neglect. And abandonment. Because he's the 100th one in a row. And I still haven't killed any of them yet. I just don't have that kind of heart. To do what is done to me every single day.

Good luck feeling good after running their food, their consciousness through your system.

As opposed to helping me.

And instant karma to all of U.

"Whatsoever U do to the least of my people, that U do unto me" said 16 years of Catholic school. So my question is, what about when they do to someone who's not the least, &, in fact, one of the leaders?

But I'm not holy, either, because I'm American. Even though I was brought here thru international, interracial adoption, and against my own will (My tiny little body kept rejecting your food when I first got here, until I "learned to like it"). U do not recognize me as enlightened because I don't fit your stereotype--comparing current master to old with a neurotic, eagle's eye, due to your own hatred, lack of faith, & invasion of another being's person--even though I saw your soul bound to me, faster than the speed of light, almost like a large dog with its eyes wide & its heart rate high. U do not recognize me because U do not know the history of the races or their spirituality. U make mice out of yourselves, rather than living masters yourselves, because U compare apples to oranges of Buddha to Jesus Christ when, to be revealing, God now makes ascended superstars with the depth of humanity in their eyes who come with all the tools, bells, & whistles &--get out of the way--can choose to be with U however they want cuz there's nothing they do that wouldn't be spewing all of those transmissions.

And when U want them to act like the least part of your person & clean your toilet because U'r half the importance, as a soul, as their pinky toenail, U think that is going to work out?

Feel free to receive the list 4 your perusal.
Be courageous. Be bold. Be unified within yourself by brilliantly just being you.

Effective immediately: May 5.11-U can add Officer C.Jones from the City of Phoenix Police Department & the "Honorable" Judge Wendy ? from the city's Municipal Traffic Court after having him bully me about where I was sitting be4 she came in, watching him control her energy during the proceedings (Gotta love being clairvoyant!), & then having her turn the subtle nuances of real, human truth into a(n outdated?) law book of reasons why corruption & a lack of compassion "win" when a 125 becomes a "motorcycle." When I told Patricia, the GM at Del Taco (still wondering why she wouldn't fight 4 my 2nd wrongful termination in Phoenix by bringing me to her store, like she has the 10 DOZEN other refugees from the store up in Anthem), afterwards I was told I was going 60 on my scooter, she laughed, "Does it even go up that high?" Yea, & after turning right coming off a full stop? Highly unlikely.

There's nothing honorable about corruption, much less corrupt judgment, so this Movement will be moving on. From the law. And thinking anything special about them. Unless they EARN it. It's no longer a given.

Then the lady downstairs at the Courthouse, & her boss, say when I tell them I have no money to pay the citations, so I'll take Community Service, like the judge opted 4 me to do in detail. And the lady goes, "U have to be eligible...R U even TRYING (to find a job)?" I must've given her a reason to start shifting in her chair, "What did you just say?" The man came out of his office behind her sensing escalating tension. He denied she'd said anything rude, "Yea, I was right here. And she didn't say anything--" "Right here?! Behind that wall--How would U know--U aren't sitting where I am." "I heard her, & she didn't say anything like that."

The corruption/incompetence continues.

I'd mentioned when I sat down, "U can ask the Unemployment Agency in CA--I've been fighting corruption there, too (too meaning about what happened in the courtroom)."

For those of U really following this, U will be glad to know she looked like she finally got it when I stood up & said, "I've been in your FINE STATE since LAST JULY & haven't stabilized income since, & I graduated from the top of my class from a private institution!"


I'm disgusted by the people here & the devolving faces of chimps who still have jobs. I want some dolphins behind the counters. At least they'd be fun to play with.

So no, everyone who's suggested I be an attorney, over the course of my life. I think today just helped me seal my fate about who gets me, & who will never, due to displayed what-you-got alone.

And what they got will give them cancer, if they don't melt first.

P.S. If U e-mail, I'll tell you all that I know, however, &, as always, I will be 110% honest, but I won't be spending more time on these people than they're worth. Life is a battlefield, & like the Elvish princess in "Lord of The Rings," the way she does the Ringwraiths that follow her on her horse when she's trying to save Frodo Baggins, after she's crossed the river, I deal with things. The Amy Jin way. And sometimes--most times, actually--I can't be accountable 4 the sky falling down on people. It's like Genghis Khan. I like to call it "Destiny."

Thank U, Source.

P.P.S. The one I almost had an unconventional love ceremony with (somewhat like a "marriage") claims I am actually Frodo Baggins.

P.P.P.S. The above situation can be put in perspective when U consider I was racially profiled & harrassed (mentally, psychically, & physically) by one of a number of unmarked, dark cars, camped out on the Frontage Road going up to the apt. community where I live while on a break/walk from job searching all morning, the day after the Tucson shooting. I never did get Sheriff Armindaree's boss to call me back, after several calls to both the City of Pheonix Personnel Dept. & then the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department, after I got his name to report him. Maybe it's because, when I scraped together the $2 (No, they absolutely could not comp me a paper by only having a credit card, not cash) to buy the AZ Republic's big job section (that basically implied the world was coming to an end & contained no jobs at all for the capitol of an entire state), I took the time to sit back & enjoy reading the ENTIRE thing, & I find out that the Sheriff's Dept.'s been under investigation for a long time for abuse of power, etc.--scandal-wracked with all sorts of delicious things--so badly, in fact, that the state escalated it to a federal level cuz they couldn't handle it.

The girl at my apartment blurted out that maybe they picked on me cuz I was HOT! Make me climb over a cement wall to "get off the road!," scale down a cliff with my Starbucks cup (Just a brew), tell me to walk down in the desert cuz there's a path down there & take off! when I climb back up, running after their car, when I realize there isn't one?

No $ for an attorney means taking my collection of crimes-done-to-me to the EEOC since Legal Aid doesn't handle discrimination. That means sitting around all day, paying for parking with the magical money I don't have, & then possibly not getting helped because that's the way it is there! Ever heard of SCHEDULING?! Or, somehow get an attorney, & sit, like a clear, crystalline Angel in the courtroom telling nothing but the truth, & have everyone around me lie & then judge in each other's favor becuz they have more in common?

Arizona Republic reads: "Irony: Buddha-Like Power Yoga Teacher Collapses From Stress and a Broken Heart Outside City of Phoenix Municipal Courthouse and Cannot Be Brought Back To Life."

I'd rather teach.

Anyone ready to help build a shala yet?

Sometimes u got me feelin' like feelin' like I's high as high as a kite. Sometimes I's feelin' like sticky licky fingers in a can o' peanut butter and u gotta know better than this.

To take advantage of me's a tryst. U's usin' me 4 her. Her *****, her calm. It's the smile in my demeanor. I got u figured out.

I can't begin to tell u how to move, how to make it betta. Her personality's vexing--sure 'nuff is--& I think it's time u made her your world, or for once,
u gonna get kicked to the curb.

Now's the time for feelin' good. How 'bout u say what u feel(in').

I want you. That's what the point is. As piercing as it might be, you can feel it in your heart, can't u, Boo? Pretty ain't as pretty when it's covered in the aftershocks of your hos/fire and ice. In your head. Your jones for her, instead. Your moans. Emotions can't be played with when they's locked up in your head.

Here's the big picture: U want her, go get her. Feel me? Have no fear, & do it. Go get her. Be a prisoner no more. I tell u, it ain't worth fear. The shark underwater. The fierce pirate's been stealin' your loot, & it's u. Why u bein' severe about it? Pressure-free. Feel u? Feel me?


How can u say it ain't a peace thang. Your life's been tied down to nothing-ness since the day u met her. U don't sweat her. There. There's the matrimony. Dutifully. Please believe. In yourself. For once. Go and get her.

A-men. There's the prayer part of you. Puttin' it out there slow enough for truth-tellers to command something new. U think, like a messenger, it ain't ancient teachings I was sent to you? Put u in your new place, space for makin' a blazing choice. A "hi" "how u doin'" half a million dollar smile might work nice.

Best be spendin' those pennies. I like to see you spendin'. Prisoner no more, we've done better, I'm sure. At least u got to steppin' those feet in the right direction. And can't any diversion keep those feet from crossin' the threshhold to the new me, the new u.

Free at last. Free at last.

Thank Goddess & Buddha I'm libertad'd from u. You hunk a' monkey bread. Junkin' me up instead of practicin' what u got. It's sweet love. Sweetness and freedom that's been sent from above. Dios. Thank Dios. Apprecios mi pretty prose so at last I can feel my emptiness.

You got it. A prophet.

A harnesser.

A tryst.

It's over. Be at peace now.

We's complete.

U'r on your path.

And I worship you no more. Nirvana.

Me. So free. I'm back in paradise.

The Not-Lost Souls: The Practitioners Of Love Yoga: The Movement

(Normally, The Practitioner Photo Gallery) Sunday, April 15, 2018: We'll see where we go from here, Ashtanga-based peops. Determine the quality of your soul in the matters, circumstances, and with the choices, before you. That is the purpose of our existence.



The One True Mirror Is The Depth & Truth Within.

When I Left Everything I Knew, I Did What I Knew I Needed 2 Do--I Purified (Asana, Pranayama, Tapas), Knew & Further Studied Myself (Svadhyaya), & Surrendered My Being & Existence To Source (Ishvara Pranidhana--My Favorite). I Was Brought To Ashtanga, To Yoga, To See That What I Had Identified As Being Responsible For Inner-To-External Freedom Was Not Only Teachable But An Ancient, All-Encompassing Wisdom Tradition. I Said To Source, "I'm In."
