|Monte Carlo from view point|
I was thinking about Fifty Shades last night (haha...as you do!). I've not read the books or seen the movie as I simply haven't been drawn to do so, therefore I cannot give an informed opinion and...neither do I want to. Each to his/her own.
I'd never have written about it, if this morning the first thing I see on FB is the Russell Brand video in which he rants about pornography - see video below.
I've read Gary Brooks' book called the Centerfold Syndrome many years ago when I first picked it up at a book fair. I found it very very interesting and rather enlightening.

I wondered if this movie may be contributing to the split in reality. I've never really subscribed to the version of them and us as my belief is that all of us are on this journey, whether we are aware of it or not, each one contributing to the collective experience.
If we believe in the split are we not constructing a reality where this proves our belief?
I'm also reading a detective thriller about female circumcision...and lo and behold I hear news snippets about female circumcision raising its ugly head in the UK. I don't watch the news or reading newspapers or magazines so I don't really know what it is about.
Coincidences? I think not.
|Hotel de Paris (opposite Cafe de Paris and next to casino)|
Many young girls, from all over the world, were milling around outside the casino/hotel, all dolled up, exposing their best assets as much as possible, hoping for a wealthy man in his high priced car to notice them. I've seen this elsewhere, but here it was rather blatantly obvious.
It sorta saddened me and to a degree I felt disheartened after years and years of working on the dismantling of the 'old' 3D sexual grid.
At the entrance to Monte Carlo along the coastal boardwalk is a mosaic that says Je'taime. A different version of love is being played out.
So...this is where faith comes in, both in myself and in humanity. We are ALL finding it difficult clawing our way out of the reality that we have created for ourselves as a collective. There is no doubt in my mind that everyone is valued for their contribution
At times this faith falters - I skip along gaily until something hits me hard and I fall into despair.

It is my job in this lifetime to create a new path to, as well as form, an alternative world available for everyone to tap into.
It helps have I an ingrained belief that we will get there.
On occasion, it takes a big splash to create an awareness that possibly this is not what we want and for a longing/desire for something far deeper to pulse out of our higher heart. It may not seem pretty, but how else would we know what we don't want?
Who knows where this latest 'craze' will lead us?
