Season's Greetings

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! It is my hope that everyone is happy, healthy and holy today. I hope you are celebrating with those that you truly love (and can hopefully tolerate) and are really being thankful to be one step closer to giving the one thing that is most important of all: Love.

It is my hope that you give to yourself more than you give to others so that when others need you, you have more than enough to give. It is my hope that when you get angry with someone that you stop and realize that it has nothing to do with them, it's all inside you. It is my hope that you can take a step back and see how perfect life truly is and that if you are experiencing any so-called "hard times" that you can see your circumstance as a wonderful gift from the Universe to rise to the challenge.

It is my hope that no matter where you are that you find a piece of true happiness today and hold on to it the other 364 days of the year. It is my hope today that all of you know that when there is darkness around you it's up to YOU to shine and be the light - no one else is going to do it. I'm so very grateful for the opportunity to be able to have a dialogue with all my Daily Lovers; you're attention is the greatest gift of all! Season's greetings and bless you!

My Humble Epistle

I found this in a box... I wrote this in 2006, kind of strange how I also self-prophesized my reality that is NOW, almost 2 years earlier...

My Humble Epistle
By Mastin Kipp
June 21st, 2006

I consider it to be a miracle that no matter where I go or who I encounter, that I do not spontaneously burst into non-existence nor do I lose any of my skill, wit, good looks, abilities or agility when I am thrown into a new and strange land.I find it humbling that I can start something, and if I walk away from it, trust and know that it will not disintegrate or stop just because there is a lack of my physical presence.

This goes for any relationship I have developed, the company I started, my writing, the bodywork I've done to lose weight, or any creative or life endeavor I might choose to embark upon. I can do whatever I want, and the fear of losing something by means of abandonment is merely and mostly an illusion.

My whole life I have thought that if I stop paying attention, if I take my eye off of something that it will disappear. But indeed it does not. It grows stronger; I have more appreciation for the people, events and objects that fill my life. I desire to seek out new knowledge with the understanding that doing so will not undo all of the work and learning I have done so far.

All of this is a wonderful leap of faith that I can do that which makes me happy free from the fear of losing that which I have already attained. And in fact, what will most likely happen is that in the pursuit of my dreams and my goals, in the wake of my actions, my life will become more full instead of more empty. Abandonment is an illusion if the seeds of fulfillment and unconditional love are sown.

It is in finding a center, knowing myself, that I can take leaps of faith. Knowing that nothing of the physical world, even my mortal death could take that center away from me. The eternal in each of us cannot be destroyed.My center, my soul, my spirit will always be there. To be in constant contact with that source is to not only know myself, but to know the Divine - it is that knowing, that energy that allows every leap of faith, idea, thought and desire to be manifested in my life if I so choose it to be.

It is that center that gives me the visions of the abundance and balance I seek, and it is that center that communicates with the source of the whole in order to give me guidance of what actions I should take in order to fulfill my birth right of abundance and balance.

This goes for all of us. This is our birthright, our duty to fulfill. I am a mere channel for this understanding. The 'I' that I refer to in this epistle is the I of the Eye, from which nothing hides and resides in us all.And for me, this humble little speck in a vast Universe of mystery, this realization is the greatest Gift of all.
