for sale…

positve energy for sale

 

For Sale.   (slightly used) Positive Energy Candle.  

The world can be a frightening and dangerous place, which is why I’ve decided to offer up for sale, this slightly used positive energy candle.  I cannot, in good conscience, keep this magical candle all to myself any longer.  Thank goodness I came to my senses before I used the whole thing.

This candle is one of only 108 that were cast during the last festival of Vaitha Vatur Truvah in an ancient temple in Verinag.  In preparation for the festival and the candle casting, the monks of the temple fast for 40 days and 40 nights and only drink water from pure silver chalices bathed in the moonlight.

The wax used in the forging of these sacred candles is no ordinary wax at all.  This is sacred beeswax from the Singing Bees of Luoyang.  Their buzzes buzz in harmony.  Their buzzes buzz with the vibration of the universe.  There have been many well documented cases of the Singing Bees of Luoyang and their terrifying judgements.  Those they deem worthy and pure of heart, the Singing Bees engulf and bless, leaving the recipients stronger, healthier and more spiritually attuned than before.  Those they deem unworthy and dangerous, they engulf and destroy with a thousand stings to the heart.

The creation of these candles is a spiritual and devotional practice.  The monks work in silence under the moonlight, melting the sacred wax in sterling silver pots heated by collected fragments of lightning from previous storms.  They add the finest herbs and oils of the region and infuse the mixture with their prayers.  When the candles have nearly solidified, the most senior monk comes forward and cries a single tear over each candle as an added blessing for the awakening of humanity.

Once completed, the candles journey out of the temple in the clutches of 54 golden eagles who are able to carry one candle in each claw.  The eagles bring the candles to the local village people to distribute after a three night celebration.

Needless to say, this is a powerful instrument of energetic cleansing and healing.  In my meager attempt to give back to humanity, I offer up for sale, the remains of this magical candle to you, dear reader of this advertisement, with the hope that you will use this candle for good and spread love, light and healing wherever you go.

photo-tales

the utah affair

comic-did you hear the news

comic-you're kidding

comic-this calls for a drink

comic-this calls for a vacation

comic-that's not all

comic-get the f*ck out

comic-oh my god

comic-these things happen

comic-its not normal

comic- let me explain

comic-dial tone

comic-it's ok we're here

comic-it's going to be ok

comic-we're here for a wedding

comic-it's our party

comic-and now we can all move on

comic-a miracle

comic-i gave birth

comic-crickets


 

Now let me explain. the utah affair is a collection of photos taken on my recent trip through Salt Lake, Park City, Teasdale, Torrey and Capitol Reef. I attended a beautiful wedding in the company of amazing people. This “photo-tale” is not an attempt to regale the wedding and it is certainly not to mock the characters in attendance. (And no, Rob did not give birth [to Chloe Cosner])
The inspiration for this story was actually disappointment. When I got home, I loaded up over 1,000 pictures and couldn’t find one single stunner. Now, I know that I’m not the only amateur photographer in the world that does exactly what my instincts led me to do accordingly… I went straight to Photoshop and tried to make something of a thousand nothings. That’s how all stories are born I suppose… from not exactly the truth.

according to deputies,
they discovered a container.
an unconscious business man reported
a dog.
remove him and cut the lock!

$6,000 discovered.
received and
violated.

$3,000 missing!

an older male wasn’t the caller.
a man went
missing…
a watch.

black out poetry- new news and poetic opinion

jump ship.

authority undeserved
operates unsuccessfully
joining controversy-
a division
the understudy
the mastermind
the departure-
significant
likely-
dramatic
flouting the lawful
reluctant decisions
the distance between-
decades long
In response
flames fanned
echoing Ultimately
Civic oversight
saying everything is A-OK-
transparency, agreement, discretion, compliance
the reality-
a binding advocacy
benchmarks, benefits, efforts-
quickly buried
pressure from officials
community, leadership, public, groups
true targets
with think tank needs
lacking approach
entrenched in their views-
a bitter battle


unititled.

umbrellas surround
separation reflects
The little things
No-brainer things
the ah-heck-inferiority-complex
blindfolded, undisclosed
secured projection
of statuesque perfection
riveting, incessant
warned of delight
of daydream, of apparition
a hand, a wand
the spin, the sugar
the jokes, the turquoise giggle
The Big Worry
The Big Budget Fairy
freezes, winks
The Big Worry Theory?
love breezy
victory overwhelmingly sleepy
messy, magical, nonsensical
emotional, professional
folks bent on special-
blank stares-
unprecedented
trembles, shuddering, triggers
unaware, uncharacteristically built
of gold glitter
over time
