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, www.dubuquearboretum.com): $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 EternalLove47@aol.com 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 EternalLove47@aol.com 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.

  • Brett Albarado***, fellow Light bringer, a former colleague at the horrifying Unity School of Christianity at Unity Village, MO (Red Wing, Minnesota): $ given in the truest spirit of tithing to this Movement.
  • Please note: All Love Offerers are listed with their permission. All who support The Movement R encouraged to receive due recognition and karma for their actions thru this section. 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.
  • **On spiritual/psychic probation by Source. And by Source, not humans, because spiritual invasion or psychic stalking by other humans is not only creepy as crap but against Spiritual Law. Don't break any laws. Simply arm yourself with the truth, and do not stray from it.
  • ***Energy no longer allowed to affiliate with Love Yoga: The Movement. Period. Until further notice. S/6.7.2014: And until Wrong is made Right, where possible. I would, if I were you, but I am not. The question is, "Will U?"

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.
  • ...as 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." $

Back In Dubuque As Of April 8th, 2016: An Update--

      Source has my back, front, and sides. See the following:
      My V.I.P. Guest situation in protected class refuge in Overland Park (Kansas City) in the Indian-Pakistani community had ended, somewhat abruptly, though it had gotten weird/creepy in ways that told me it was beyond time, anyway, when my ally's Engineer brother, from BMW, & wife, from Germany, were given my Guest spot, instead. At the same time, there was no reason why, in normal circumstances, I shouldn't have procured an apartment in 6 months anywhere. These, however, are not "normal" times. Not when the world is so disjointed that you can't find a job at your maximum performance level for years--or when Studios and 1-bdrm.'s are pervasively unavailable for over a year in 1 market, &/or are completely out of sync with many or most "jobs" in the area. As you can see on LinkedIn, which I finally rejoined while down there, Johnson County, historically one of the wealthiest counties in the country?, was trending with the same things that had made me leave Dubuque, so, in some ways, I essentially spun my wheels down there more, with 3-4 similar investigations now under way, at a state and federal level, though I credit the enlightenment, witness, and internal beauty of my old and new contacts in Kansas during this time with helping to turn the tide on many things, including back in Iowa.
      While I'm down there, another key contact from the past year in Dubuqueland reveals his true colors and goes split-down-the-middle on me, too, however, the last contact I have in that area has somewhat reclaimed himself by offering me an emergency landing pad, should I have to come back up there, including in the situation now at hand--I have, miraculously, found a pretty Amy-Jin perfect 1-bdrm. in a haystack, and secured it, though it is not available for almost 2 mos., after commanding a new, ground-level leadership offer from 7-ELEVEN, ironically, award-winning for employing veterans, who has heard my story and has stepped up and forward to help me keep going in that area, looking to re-establish Love Yoga: The Movement there. Kev, my Field Supervisor-in-Training(-himself), is confident I'll be able to find right-fitting work, thereafter. The offer is made "standing." I plan to go back up to my contact's in Iowa during that time, turn around, and come back with what I have left in material possessions.
      After my host proves in the way, again, even on my way out, I finally am headed back to Dubuque. My contact literally bombs as I'm driving into Des Moines. Almost as if they knew, and as had been hinted at in an e-mail a week or two before, Sam-Dad and Sarah-Mom, when called about it, did a bad job of acting at the news. I could land there--for now--without their knowing much more than the nature of what was going on at the time. Getting off the phone with my contact, a psychic portal opened up, and feeling his energy and personal chaos, it shifted into the downtown area of Dubuque. I saw terrorized African-Americans screaming and running, as if something terrible had just happened, Race-wise. A Caucasian male came into my mind's eye, as though he was looking right at me, screaming in rage. He was at hand, and I took it he was a Supremacist. I thought, "What in the world...is going on there now?!" During this same trip, Weston Point, in Overland Park, with Preferred Employer agreements with the likes of Sprint, Cerner, Black & Veatch, the Military, the City of Overland Park(, which is why I chose them), starts giving me further run-around about my application, also trying to fraud me out of my move-in special. Note that, now back in Dubuque, doing my final fill-up at Hy-Vee Fuel in Asbury Plaza, I am stopped, as I'm running out, after paying, by the front page of the Telegraph Herald, which declares something like, "Magistrate Indicted For Felony Theft." I stopped dead in my tracks. April 8th, 2016. Guess who, United States of America!!! MAGISTRATE MATTHEW NOEL, amongst the corrupt judges in Dubuque County District Court the Iowa Supreme Court has told me they don't have "proof" enough to do anything about in the bullying, discrimination, and racism keeping me from the Appeal they've been charging me for, anyway, and stealing my tax refunds over. Therefore, when I write to the state again, asking for that Appeal, I said, "Looks as if I was, in fact, right, and as if I'm owed my Appeal and stolen time and resources back. I look forward to your response." Matthew Noel wrote that corrupt Order in December of 2014--the month he was confronted by Des Moines about stealing, it looked like, 10's of 1000's of $'s from the state, charging for services he never provided in his work with, low-income, likely minority, Iowans.I don't even care that everyone's staring at me. I let out an, "Ohhh myyyy God..." and a victory whoop before running in heels back to my rental. By the time I get back to the house, my contact has recooperated from his self-described "freak-out" and has said the couch is mine, but I decide to stand my ground at the house in Asbury, for the time being.
      Unprovoked, as usual, it took only days before my former parents started in on their usual abuse, denial of facts, and choice to join the insane and disordered, Sarah continuing on her non-stop tape about how racism is my "excuse," made up, and doesn't exist. Fortunately, I'm not having to do a whole lot of lone self-defense anymore since, the next morning, the front page of the paper made the point for me. Cross burnings (again) in downtown Dubuque, taking us back to the 1990's, where I made my initial stand here, against racism and intolerance, for myself and others.
      The state releases my tax refund, in an amazing, miraculous breakthrough, following the fresh wind of correspondences I had unleashed during one of my last visits to the area, weeks before, with no explanation, other than the woman I spoke with saying, "They released it--It doesn't say why or where your letter went, but, yes, it got released," however, it was followed up, days later, by the firm who's been sending me harrassing letters for the past year sending another letter, out of Urbandale, IA/San Antonio, TX. At least they seem usually responsive when I call with updates, including that the state seemed to be conceding something was not right with this case this year. A wild goose chase, as usual, that led me around campus for the better part of a morning, following a long talk with someone in leadership in the Iowa Supreme Court Judicial Qualifications Committee about sending a letter to his boss, Administrator Boyd, in the next office over, still has resulted in nothing pertaining to getting a finally-fair Appeal and outside of Dubuque County, but I'm not giving up. Like I've been saying since the beginning, this is a precedent-ball that this state can't afford to drop.
      My uncle passes away. I happen to realize, in revisitng my Baby Book, as I complete an application to visit Seoul for the 1st time, that he, and some friends, and I believe 1 of my aunts, were my 1st visitors, here in the United States. I believe he was just out of high school at the time. According to notes, he even came back again, not too long after! An intuition that would not go away is not passed along in time. Perhaps it would've made no difference. Maybe it would've. I go to the funeral, in spite of everything, and am glad I did. I discover his birthday was a day before mine. Family is the core of everything. I will always feel and teach that, even if that loyalty is not reciprocated by people I was ignorantly given to. I am an ancient wisdom beacon, in between 2 pieces of lost, fluff-called-bread. I can see why people toss the bun.
      "Work" is even more missing in action now than it was before I left, up here, however, 1 successful Connection with 1 of the Soccer players I went to school with in Chicago creates a subsequent tidal wave of reconnections with guys from that team, which opened up the door to LinkingIn to other athletes from other teams, including my own, I'd wondered about since graduation. My roommate pretty much responsible for my conscious spiritual awakening my junior year. Others. More past co-workers from IT. Grad School, overseas interest are now staring me in the face. How good it is to see their faces and hear their stories--both like mine and not--can't be described. People are nourishment, especially when you've cared about them, and to whatever extent.
      A hate crime that has recently become federal-level that occurred during the tumult of last year, for me, most of which took place downtown, at a bar I was eerily taken to (Coincidence?) by still-needs-to-be-written-about Stan(islav) & his peops, about a year ago to the date, occurs to me to have a name connection to the cross burnings when I was growing up. Follow-up with police connections I have about what I saw on the drive into Des Moines indicates that Randy Metcalf wasn't involved in the cross burnings of the past, but, without looking at old scrapbooks, I'm quite positive that that was an involved name--(More irony,) also the name of one of the main streets in Overland Park. Imagine my surprise, or not, however, when the paper says the following: Local concerned citizens are frustrated by getting no info. from the police on the latest cross burning...and, at some point, Randy Metcalf has told people, locally, that he had something to do with a/the previous cross burning. It did not elaborate.
      The federal government's finally in town, weeks later, for a huge meth/drug bust, where multiple people from the area are arrested. I was high--on life--that day, to put it mildly. LOL. I told Schlamuel & the Sarah that I was going to stand somewhere on the path the whole city apparently watches me run along & hold a sign, "I LOVE the federal government."
      This is following an overflowing public forum about the "heroine/opioid epidemic" now rocking the tri-state area (IA, WI, IL). I also get back a day before the 1st mosque breaks ground, here in Dubuque. I notify my database about both and make public my support of standing up and attending the former and being honoring towards the latter. At this point, however, I don't know who's following suit and who's hating. This is because it takes something like too many local residents dying to overflow a convention center, as opposed to all things stagnating and people watching as real leaders are chased out of town by, for instance, total and complete systematic bigotry, as they did me, explaining a next-to-no one response to the Department of Justice-sponsored Forum on Hate Crimes and the recent cross burning I stood up and attended here on June 1st, where I realize just how bad it's gotten here. The more people move into fear as their primary motivating force, with or without conscious recognition, the more this place starts to feel like a communist country where no one can say how they're REALLY feeling, which is the 1st step to healing dying altogether.
      I also contact Joyce McDermott, head of 2 West at Mercy Medical Center (again), who now concedes to all points I'm making--except for that internal investigation. I proceed, then, to escalate above her to a Board member who also deals with internal investigations and "Diversity issues." Haven't heard from her yet. I. Wonder. Why. I look forward to what I'm strongly encouraging as self-correction and response on their part, showing that anyone there should be getting paid for anything they're doing there.
      In the meantime, after I catch Weston Point, again, doing something either egregiously erroneous or directly "-ist", where they now won't explain calling my 6-7 mos. of asked-for proof of income "4," say, "You WILL pay the amount we're telling you."--Or WHAT?!--and multiply my Security Deposit owed by 4, they don't follow through on their promise to make more clear and transparent their terms, as I demanded, and call me back after they've received an answer from their hierarchy on that, after I'd taught the not-even-the-D.M.-but-pretended-to-be-for-just-over-or-under-an-hour a compact course called, "Business Importance: 101," but send me their Attorney to push me out of my lease, saying they can CLEARLY see I don't like their apartment. Kev has already texted me, saying he has quit and is going back to Sears, 1 of multiple places where he also lost jobs and rank in the Recession, saying he hates it (Convenience/Gas) and to not go back--I won't like it, either! I say, "I'm going to follow through and do it." The Kansas Human Rights Commission just happens to call me back about KC Bell (Taco Bell) right after Weston Point harrasses me by telling me to call that Sylvia, District Manager, who ended up being just an Assistant, who doesn't even have voicemail, saying, "They can't do that!" They send me on a wild goose chase to all governmental orgs pertaining to jurisdiction over the Kansas City rental market since the KHRC claims to have none. Fair Housing says, "What do you think, what do you think this was, what do you think." I say, "What do YOU think." "I think it was because of your Race. And that came to me 2 or 3 times while you were talking." So now they're investigating. Kev tells the Field Supervisor taking over for him about more targeting or whatever this unfair crap is that keeps showing up in my life...but now he's getting all the dates screwed up and says the offer "has to have a shelf life." WHAT!? The next possible apartment is now in June, back at Highland Ridge, where I used to live, and where I'd been Guesting this past stint which, ironically, or symbolically?, was the last place where life had been truly right(, notably before the Recession), leading Power Yoga/Modeling/supplementing income in Indian-Pakistani Restaurant, Fashion, & then at Unity Village(, which was where I started noticing things that were starting to stink like raw sewage), pioneering hybrid technology in the community with my new, Super White Prius, living vitally BY MYSELF, not as a hostage or Prisoner of Wars, the day? after I finally evacuated Taco Bell altogether--Kind of like Dubuque, I got to watch my old, beloved apartment & building go up in flames, after I'd nodded at the fire trucks on my run after practice, wondering where a whole army of them were going with a notable stress around all their vehicles, more than usual. I found out when I got back. 7-ELEVEN pulls the offer after supposedly checking around for open Assistant-Manager-In-Training spots. I am now officially wiped off the map, again, and am the only Asian-American (actually standing up for being Asian-American--and everyone else) within a multiple state radius? I am now officially stuck, again, in No Man's Land of Dubuque/Asbury.
      I am sitting here after one of my supporters has put me into another corporate hotel--that's not full with visiting travelers and in-chaos Dubuquers alike, when it looks as if there may be violations of religious freedom and practice at the 1 last remaining Women's Shelter in town, which I started optioning as "ready and waiting," a week or so ago, and seeing was 100% better than my worst nightmare now called my adoptive family, other than a seemingly random opportunity to submit a piece for an inspired idea by one of my Schmelzer aunts, after I'd gotten back, thru one of Sam-Dad's cousins, about my memories of growing up Schmelzer. I reiterated one of the concluding points from my still-unpublished autobiography--that my experiences still say that, when fully functional and committed to by ALL therein, interracial, international adoption, in its ideal form, is not just a peek into but PROOF of the possibility of World Peace. I am horrified, however, with what I have been shown by my adoptive parents, sister, and extended family, knowing full well who I am, and given uncountable, clearly and consciously offered opportunities to change, repent, heal, and improve, choosing all forms of darkness and malice, instead, as recently as this past Thursday, when I arrived here on my usual magic carpet: Grace and other awake nodes, sometimes states away. Example: 1, 2? days after finding out about Weston Point, then 7-ELEVEN, Sam and Sarah look at each other and scream at me, "You need to leave here, then, and by 2 weeks from now, or we'll call the Sheriff to come and evict you!" "WHAT!??" Then, I reminded myself that in Wonderland, every day is opposite day. I watch on the News as Murderers have mothers and/or fathers, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles sitting by them, supporting them, hugging them, standing up for them to the press. It has brought me great peace to, the other day, have it completely dawn on me, as if being whispered to in etheric comfort, in a moment of silence, from a Protector on the Other Side, "You have done everything right...nothing wrong...and they persecute you still."
      It's time for a Revolution on this planet, starting from within. Starting from this country. Everyone get willing to be the United States of America, from the inside, that made you, or your ancestors, want to come here. This is not a place to come to GET Freedom. You come here to rise to the occasion of BEING Freedom. And that is the mark of a Leader. If you are here, you are either from people or are the person who resonated with the idea of Freedom as your birthright and were leader enough to do something about it. Thus, the very definition of being a United States of American (We were taught the term "American" was politically incorrect. I find it ironic that it's now running rampant as if anyone in the Americas isn't an "American"), or citizen of this country, then, is to admit to being a leader amongst other leaders. And leaders know how to fall into right and accurate rank. How to learn and follow directives when that rank is properly ordered. How to do what is best for all people, rather than be ruled by selfish motivation. They are people, ultimately, who love other people, even above themselves, and would wish nothing more than for Justice to be with each and every one. You are not here to rape this land, its man-made reality, or anything under the sun. You are here to find the Truth of the All of Life and to share it. Truth and realization is the Gold--and the keys to unlocking Freedom for others. Find Freedom within, and share it. It is Light. It is unyielding honesty. Integrity. Strength which stands for your people and the places you come from, that looks to preserve itself in order to share and continue to be of benefit to all people. It looks to learn from others in this tremendous opportunity we all have to become better individuals, from the inside out, or not. When we replace our lust for capital with Love and love of virtue, instead, we will be heading in the right direction. And together.
      May the greatest powers in the universe be with you as you do. May this begin to define how women and men, both, are beautiful, and how men and women, both, are powerful. WE ARE GREATER THAN THIS. WE ARE THE COMPOSITION OF GOD.

Tryst

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?

Peace.

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 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."
