Intimacy, Sexuality, and Ellen Page

GARD Pro Not Registered

So it’s twelve thirty at night, flipping around the “channels” of the internet, because you know, TV is becoming more and more obsolete, and there’s way better stuff to watch on the internet anyways… and suddenly I find myself watching this short 8 minute video of Ellen Page speaking at the “Time to Thrive” Human Rights conference.

And I am absolutely blown away. It is such an inspiring speech, and opens up a very important discussion which we need to be having, especially in our modern western world.

Without further adieux, here is the video. I’ll tell you my thoughts about it afterwards :)

I don’t know if Ellen Page has any interest in Spirit Science or the stuff that I’m doing, but if you do read this, I want to say thank you for having the courage to stand up and speak the Truth. It was a very powerful experience to watch that, and was the inspiration for me to write the following :)

scrubsI think at the core of it all, what we’re really talking about is true intimacy. That’s the thing we’re all afraid of. Most of the time we like to make it about sex, the physical act of making love, but that’s not really where the problem is. The problem is that people are afraid of being intimate with each other.

We have forgotten what strong male intimacy looks like, and even female intimacy has become misconstrued.

Men, how many other men have you held? How many other men have you shown your emotional side to? How many guys do you share a close, intimate connection with?

Ladies, same question. Do you connect with your girlfriends in an open, honest way? (Something tells me the gender roles are a little bit different… I don’t think women have the same challenge that men do in this regard, but then again, what do I know? I’ve got man parts :P  )

Because of these ridiculous social standards, we have decided that Love and Intimacy is for couples only. Thus, friends don’t go there, family don’t go there, and we all suffer because of it.

If I can inspire any action at all within you, let it be the act of opening up to the possibility that Love can truly look like anything. Don’t be afraid of being close to another man because of a fear that you’ll look “Gay”. What does that even mean anyways?!

Lets look past that. We’re all human. At some level of awareness we are all beyond gender itself. We don’t need labels, we can simply Be, and from that space we can simply Do – whatever the hell we want to, and that right there is Freedom.

With all of the love in the world,
Jordan

The Hobbit 2

The Hobbit 2 ~ Movie Review

GARD Pro Not Registered

The Hobbit was one of the biggest anticipations of mine for the year! It was like a grand finale for the year and everything that’s been going on. :D

The Hobbit 5See, for me the movie isn’t just a movie… it’s a reflection and representation of what’s going on in my life. When I first started working with Ray and building Panic to Freedom, that was right around when the first Hobbit came out, and we both went super stoked to go with each other because we’re two of the biggest nerds on the planet!

In addition to that though, afterwards we also read the book together, usually reading a chapter every time one of us would make meals, and we would alternate back and forth on reading. (We also read PatternMaster and Enders Game this year). I absolutely loved the book, it was a whimsical tale, very innocent and playful, and a very easy read at that.

 

I have a new rule for movie books

It’s better to have two enjoyable experiences, than one great one, and one that feels disappointing. 

If you haven’t read the book already, and there’s a movie coming out… watch the movie first. The book is always better… but the movie always seems enjoyable if you have no idea what it is going into it… So simply save the best for last, and both experiences are great!

Love and Sex

GARD Pro Not Registered

Love is not about sex, but sex is certainly about love… or at least, it should be.

sexuality2When you’re in a relationship, and striving to create a powerful connection between you and your love, it’s important to recognize what the relationship is about, and why you are together in the first place. If its an intimate or sexual relationship, sometimes we (at least in western culture) often have a habit of making things all about sex… we don’t know any other way to do it. Continue reading

Pain, Resistance, and Birth

GARD Pro Not Registered

Okay, i’m working hard on that other blog (part 2 from yesterday) and i’m having a little bit of a hard time with framing it all in a way that makes sense and doesn’t go on for 400 pages, so I thought i’d shift gears for a day to explore something I just read with you.

opposing forces

This is a reflection and combination of two vibrations, one – this previous blog where I basically said “Look, if something is contradictory, there’s a deeper meaning to it that brings the two halves into a whole. Lets not push the contradictions individually, lets bring them together to understand the bigger picture.”

The second – I just finished reading Teals latest blog “Is Pain a Necessary Part of Birth?“, and it actually really got me thinking. I’ve been reading a lot of Teals blogs lately, It’s interesting to have another reference point of awareness to help me see where my own dots aren’t connecting. Continue reading

Love and Like

GARD Pro Not Registered

I don’t know exactly the right way to go about this, it’s an expansion into something I talked about before, of which i didn’t get a lot of feedback about.

Remember how i’ve expressed some frustration with some teachings in the  Spiritual Communities on the internet and what have you..?

facepalmI recognize that my blogs are less appealing when I come from that space of frustration, and I am doing my best to shift my public expressions into a manner that is approachable and readable, without needing to create a war and separation between myself and the things I’m talking about.

And yet, just because I Love, does not mean I always have to like. Continue reading

My Inner Monologue

GARD Pro Not Registered

This blog is based on thoughts my mind puts together after watching 5 seasons of Scrubs in the background while i’ve been working on Pair o’ Dime Shift and Spirit Science (Speaking of which, i’m working on SS22_3, it’s a REALLY BIG ONE! So It’s taking a little more than 1 week…Stay Tuned!).

I saw something the other day that just made me light up inside! I can’t find it anymore… I think it was on Facebook, and you know how Facebook goes… You see it once, and then its gone forever.

It was something like “Jordan I really enjoy your blog, it flows really well and is easy to read”

It felt really good to hear, because for a long time i’ve been really afraid of expressing myself via writing (or even videos) for fear of sounding stupid or saying something that didn’t make sense.

So to hear someone tell me “Dude Bro I’m vibing with you!” just feels really great!…. Bro!

jd

I wanted to share a little about that, and how it came to be the way it is. These thoughts are happening in real time, and they’re just pouring out, just like the way that JD in Scrubs constantly monologues everything! From that perspective, the show is brilliant. It creates a space of reflection for anyone who watches it to think about and reflect upon the happenings that go on all around you. And that’s a valuable piece of the puzzle.

Truth is Truth.

GARD Pro Not Registered

After looking at some of the past few blogs i’ve written, I feel like i’m on a sort of a streak of sharing my perspective about some of the teachings in the spiritual communities.  An objective view, for sure… I haven’t seen many people speaking like I am, save for the people I live with. Maybe we’re just crazy, I’m open to that possibility :P

Speaking of spiritual teachings, here’s one that always drives me bonkers!! “Find out what your own personal truth is for you!”  Aghh, that one always drives me bonkers.

Truth is Truth. It’s True regardless of if you want it to be or not. I think Ghandi said it best here…

“Even if you’re a minority of One… Truth is Truth.”
