Natalie Anne Merchant (born on 26 October 1963)Β  is an American singer-songwriter, musician and poet

In her beautiful song β€œOphelia” (Dec 6: OPHELIA by Natalie Merchant), she imagines a woman living different lives throughout history , which in the end appear to be delusions from a mental patient (the real Ophelia).

Three quotes:

β€œI wish I had appreciated my youth – I should have worn tighter clothing when I could have!”

β€œI don’t want to live in a culture of despair. I’d like to live in a culture of hope.”

β€œI can’t remove the autobiographical slant from the things I write. You always bring yourself into what you’re writing.”

🎈  πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ

β€œCome vorrei aver apprezzato la mia giovinezza – avrei dovuto indossare abiti piΓΉ stretti quando potevo!”

β€œNon voglio vivere in una cultura della disperazione. Mi piacerebbe vivere in una cultura della speranza. ”

β€œNon riesco a togliere dai miei scritti una propensione autobiografica. Ci si intrufola sempre in ciΓ² che si scrive. “

  1. ON LETTING GO

    β—‡ – Diamond Hard – β—‡

    ♀ Some Say “Quitting is Weakness!!!”; I Say “FUCK OFF!!!”
    ♀ Some Say “I’VE LOST EVERYTHING!!!”; I Say “Swallow Some Cement then Harden The FUCK UP!!!”
    ♀ Some Say “IT’S ALL YOUR FAULT!!!; I Say “Look in Your FUCKING!!! Mirror.”

    β—‡ – Diamond Hard – β—‡

    β—‡ Pay Attention
    β—‡ Signs
    β—‡ Synchronicities
    β—‡ SubAtomic Spaces
    β—‡ Suggestions
    β—‡ Signals
    β—‡ Guidelines
    β—‡ Pointers
    β—‡ Pay FUCKING!!! Attention

    …if You FAIL!!! to Understand The Above I Suggest Using Road Trips as Metaphor; if That FAILS!!! then This Message isn’t Meant For You RIGHT NOW!!! πŸ˜†πŸ˜…πŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š Cognitive Dissonance is THE RAGE RESISTANCE!!! to Different Ways of THINKING!!!, Speaking and Behaving; something called ‘The Leech Effect’ in Fond Memory of ‘Medical Experts’ who ‘Bled Out Bad Blood’ with Leeches as a ‘Cure’ so, given pharma, nothing much has changed there, yet We Have a Perfect AutoImmune System…this Absurdity is NOT!!! confined to The Medical Profession, for example, a Circle is Accepted as 360Β° yet Mathematicians and Scientists, due to Their Entrenched Education, Argue The Toss about How Many Degrees a Sphere Has; the simple answer is 360Β° Cubed (46,656,000Β° for those interested) just like a Square, 90°×4=360Β° Cubed (46,656,000Β° for those interested), Go Figure πŸ€” ?…

    ON BEING AFEARED

    β—‡ – Diamond Hard – β—‡

    In My Experience there ARE Two Types of People in the Context of Fear; those who treat Fear as a Problem and Pretend to be Fearless and those who Accept that We ALL Feel Fear and who Perceive Fear as a Pathway to Solutions…it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that I Really Don’t Have Time for Problem Promoters, COMPLAINANTS!!! Seeking Excuses and ALL The Time in The World for Solution Seekers, THINKERS!!! Embracing Fear as an Assisting Friend; so I Invite You ALL to Consider These Various Expansions of The Acronym F.E.A.R then please Share Your THOUGHTS!!! with ALL of Us:

    β—‡ False Evidence Appearing Real
    β—‡ Friendly Emotive Alert Response
    β—‡ Firm Efficient Assertive ReAction

    …it’s also Crystal Clear Clarity that I AM Successful because I AM Driven by Fear of Failure; a Very Powerful Motivation…yet I Still Fail but it doesn’t matter; especially because of Inspirational People like this Lady (May She R.I.P)

    β—‡ http://www.susanjeffers.com – Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway

    ON SAT (SURRENDER ACCEPTANCE TRUST)

    β—‡ – Diamond Hard – β—‡

    β—‡ It’s Crystal Clear Clarity that Some of Us Really Do Understand Suffering, Forgiveness and Boundaries πŸ€“ ; yet Others Allow Bad Behaviours to Continue in The Mistaken Belief that Behaviours WILL!!! Improve with ALL Sweetness and Light πŸ˜” …that is until Furious, Raging Resentment Kicks In 😠 ; so, watch’ya gonna do next πŸ€” ? So I Suggest with ALL Your Perceived Power Sit Down, Be Humble and Just Be; whatever NEEDS!!! Knowing or Remembrance in ANY GIVEN MOMENT!!! doesn’t NEED FORCING!!!

    ON TABOO DATING

    β—‡ – Diamond Hard – β—‡

    Many Serial Daters may consider Futures Dates in a Different Light; with an InExhaustible List of Questions Like:

    β—‡ “What are your sexual preferences πŸ€”?”
    β—‡ “Are you psycho πŸ€” ?”
    β—‡ “How many kids do you want πŸ€” ?”

    …and Other such ‘Inappropriate’ Dating Questions; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that doing things the same way and expecting different results is mad, nutty, dumb, confused, crazy, delusional et al…this with a Very, Due Respectful Nod in The Direction of Mr Albert Einstein; a Scientist who was NEVER!!! Comfortable with The Idea of Quantum UnCertainty Famously Stating “God does not play dice with The Universe.”…

    β—‡ – Diamond Hard – β—‡

    …β—‡β—‡β—‡…

    ON RELIGION AND OTHER MODALITIES

    β™‘ So You Don’t Trust YourSelf EveryOne instead Trusting to Other ‘Authority’ such as a White Elderly Man with a Long White Beard or Other ‘Divine’ Male, Godly Manifestations while Totally Ignoring Goddess; Poor You, I’ll Observe from a Distance while SHE!!! Rips You Apart πŸ˜†πŸ˜…πŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

    …β™‘β™‘β™‘…

    ON THE NATURE OF REALITY – PROBLEM SOLVING

    β™‘ I Seek Solutions instead of Promoting Problems EveryOne; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that We ALL Have Limitations yet We Can ALL Do Things Others Struggle To Do so I Suggest Figure Out Your Weaknesses and Strengths

    …so, about Awareness and Enlightenment; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity to Me that Consciousness has Four States:

    ♀ Conscious of Our Decision Making – Our Choices
    ♀ SubConscious State 1 – A Private Place where We ARE UnConscious of Our Decision Making, Reflexes and Knee-Jerk ReActions
    ♀ SubConscious State 2 – A Public Place where We Do ESP (Extra Sensory Perception) Stuff like Telepathy and Dreaming et al
    ♀ SubConscious State 3 – The Single Source of All That Was, All That Is and All That Will Be, An Ever Expanding Sphere

    …so Repetition, Routine and Boredom may be Suggesting To You a Lesson to be Learned EveryOne; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that Everything Passes whether ‘Good’ or ‘Bad’ so The Trick is Not to Get Stuck in Circular Time with ‘Bad’ or ‘Good’…instead Let Life Flow in Linear Time; this is 3D after all and 5D is Attainable by Traversing 4D

    …β™‘β™‘β™‘…
