Twin Souls Pavilion @ Sedona's Playground in Second LifeThe soul work continues…as I go deeper into Gary Zukav’s book, “The Seat of the Soul”, I am finding it expands my bigger picture of who we are, who I am, and why we’re here; and that has given me a comfort and ease I have not known.

I feel like I had the last big piece of mental awakening just as 2011 was ending, that informed me on an intellectual level that all is well in our universe and evolution. Not that there won’t be growing pains…but it’s going to happen.

This astonishing year of 2012 we are now halfway through has been like rocket fuel to my path, as my focus and experience has shifted to awakenings of the heart. Much information is coming to light that our heart is more remarkable than we ever thought. The heart has become the focus of amazing researcher and visionary, Gregg Braden, and I find what he has to say inspiring.

Many would agree with me that information is coming in at a rapid pace from many sources of wisdom, and the speed at which the world, and us, runs, is measurably faster now. What this bigger perspective I’ve gained from the soul work has done for me is to weave together many bits of things I’ve studied along the way, particularly in the last few years, and last few months. These past few months my reading subjects have been gleaned down to the study of the soul, the heart, loving yourself, astrology, animal totems, and various authors about how we really do create our own realities. Now I’ve added a new aspect, or refocused on an older one, that of soulmates, and twin souls.

It is a fascinating subject in many respects, and I find it is the topic of much conversation, confusion, and debate. As with most knowledge, if not wisdom, not much can be “proven” according to science, which is a belief system anyway that you would have to buy into to have any of those results be understandable or matter.

Delving back into the study of soulmates, which I’ve studied before, and now Twin Souls, which I have not, brings much pondering about what I read, and how it fits into who I am in this life and moment. I’ve come to know that our answers and truths are within us, and we will be the final judge of what is right and wrong in all the information and opinions we take in. Doing this with the Twin Souls information has really caused me to stretch my perspective in understanding who I am. I love it! It’s why I’m here.

Twin Souls Info Area @ Sedona's Playground in Second Life

Part of my inspiration has been a new area at Sedona’s Playground in Second Life, the Twin Souls Pavilion, where you can get a huge head start on learning a little something about this subject. Find great information on twin souls, soulmates, and karmic connections there, get lost in some of twin souls art, find a spot to chill and chat or read, or dance on the watercolor dance floor.

Enjoy!

My Funeral Weekend

I had the opportunity to attend my own funeral over the weekend. No, I’m feeling fine and still here; pixels and other important things seem to be intact. The funeral happened in an impromptu manner, such as death has a way of doing too it seems.

Gallery Xue had issued a call for decorated coffins for a gallery event they were having this weekend. Undecorated coffins were available without charge on the Marketplace, so I set off to my favorite sandbox lately, the LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) Sandbox at LEA5.

The decorating theme was “how would you decorate your final resting place”. For me that’s easy. Anyone who knows me knows that I collect little besides experiences and kindred spirits these days. So I decided to assemble some pics from my time in Second Life to decorate my coffin, and the wool gathering began…

So many great experiences have happened in the short time I’ve been in SL!

What started as decorating my coffin, started to make me think about what my funeral would be like. A simple affair such as the one I did at LEA would be fine; you can pack me up with just the memories I’ve already taken with me as I lie down in that box. A few more people, some music, and people telling fantastic lies about me while sipping cocktails…all would be quite lovely.

The reason this didn’t seem at all morbid is because just as I embrace life, I embrace death too. I see it as just a door opening to another journey. I’ve lived an amazing life and I see each new day as just more icing on the cake. I’m also planning for the next stop after this life to look  something like this anyway, so what’s not to like? You can skip the whole box thing too. I’d be happier if you started my own compost pile for me and I can fertilize the Zucchinis in death, just as I’ve done in life.

Back to the project, I start to link everything together to transport to the gallery, and it seemed that every time I rezzed my coffin there were more pieces missing. Haha, I’ll have to work on that. Then a family member needed me, and that was it for the project. R.I.P. Coffin project. Sorry Faith, I really am going to get a piece to your gallery someday. Thanks for keeping me inspired!

Then, a notice arrives that the Seniors from VB28 were getting together as THE SENIORS MARCHING UNIT
to march in the Virtual Museums Inc’s 2nd Anniversary Parade on Sunday. Yay, I had barely made it to the first performance and then was not able to be in the piece due to my computer being just hours away from a major failure. But now I could don my Senior drag and strut down the parade route with the rest.

The parade was pretty free form from my perspective as we quickly spread out and I had to rejoin the parade route several times from getting lost, even with red arrows on the ground. But that’s just my style. I’m the klutzy one thank you. I do look good though, and really, what’s more important? As you’ll see I won’t be ready for frumpy clothes anytime soon.

Seeing myself looking that old and still trying to be hip was far more scary than the thought of quickly being whisked off to the afterlife before that happens. It would be something to ponder…except there are far more interesting things to think about and do.

So now that I’ve gotten my funeral out of the way, I’m ready for a lot more living.

See you soon,

Calli

More Orange Weekend!

Riali @ Ozland

In my haste to push the publish button yesterday I forgot a couple of stops I made.

The first was another visit to my friend Riali Sandalwood’s exhibit at Ozland where she is Visiting Artist of the Month. Her “Whismsical Cats” piece is available for free at the exhibit.  Tees are available too with some of her artwork on them, and the original works themselves. My fave is the one with the Love Birds. And it’s orange too. Hmmm.

Riali also has another exhibit at Monroe Snook’s Studio 33 with works of a completely different style. You’ll TP to a meditation circle featuring the current artists. Riali’s exhibit is at Art Yard 3 on the teleporter in the circle.

Calli @ Chelsea HotelAnother place I finally got around to checking out was the Chelsea Hotel in NYC. Second Life’s NYC. I hung out here for a few and did some writing and loved learning about the history of the Chelsea. There is modern history too as a notecard is given about the takeover and subsequent battle for control of the hotel. I’m fascinated by the account as I live in a very similar building on the other side of America. A lot to think about and perhaps write about.

But in the meantime, check out the Chelsea Hotel. It’s full of art and there is a big sale on right now, it’s a great place to chill, and it’s full of history. Good music stream too.
