My last couple of profile edits were to add some anime I have been watching over the past week.
For all of you romantics out there, I definitely recommend "Sukitte Ii na yo" (Say I love you). I probably typed the Japanese part wrong, so if i offend any of you I apologize in advance. I am only learning the spoken language, not the written, so writing is a pain in the ass for me. Anyway, it was a VERY touching series in every single episode. Almost every series I watch has at least 1 episode that seems to sit as a filler or something sidetracked. That was not the case here. Every episode kept me hooked on the main plot and really had something to learn from each and every instance. And i do not believe this anime is just for lovers and romantics. The most touching part of this for me was how people overcame obstacles of bullying and peer pressure.
To be honest, I pretty much lost my childhood to bullying and being an outcast, so some of the scenes in this anime really brought tears to my eyes. I am usually passive about people's opinions on anime, as we're all entitled to our opinions, but on this one I actually have to stand up and say that if you watch this and think it sucks, then you have no heart at all.
We are from the future.
Everything is going to be alright.
Humanity is about to undergo an astonishing revolution.
Many have called for this revolution, but few understand what it truly means.
This coming revolution is part of a great progression towards an awakening of staggering proportions.
Life force is the creative self-organizing intelligence orchestrating all of this behind the scenes.
Life force is experienced by you as the feeling of Love - for Life and Love are the same.
What humanity is about to become is quite inconceivable to you right now,
But we are here to help make this transition a little easier.
[YOU ARE NOT ALONE]
Like gyroscopic force stabilizes a motorcycle - Life force [Love] stabilizes all living systems.
Populations full of love, cultivate honesty, courage and generosity, self-organizing and self -regulating without the need for coercive control.
Populations with deficits in love succumb to fear, violence and corruption, inviting coercive governments to combat the chaos and entropy that arises in the absence of love’s organizing intelligence.
Just as Life force is experienced as love, entropy is experienced as ego, hatred and fear.
The corrupt and power hungry feed on this fear.
Without enough gyroscopic force to keep it upright a motorcycle falls, likewise without enough love to keep them upright free and idealistic governments fall.
Populations too fearful, selfish and chaotic to stand on their own, invite despotic governments to forcefully rule and stabilize them like a kickstand for those who've lost their minds.
As long as a population has more fear than love, what appears to be democracy is often little more than a spectacle to mesmerize the masses. Autocratic power still operates behind the scenes. Its media directs people’s unconscious fears and aggressions towards invented enemies, insane competitiveness, rabid consumerism and addiction.
THIS SYSTEM WILL SELF DESTRUCT.
This system glorifies the ego, the embodiment of entropy, which convinces you that you are alone against the world, causing alienation, fear and aggression.
The core values of your culture have been hijacked, forging a pathologically antisocial anti-ecological system obsessed with profit, power and control.
THIS SYSTEM WILL SELF DESTRUCT.
Real change must now come from outside this system.
Real change must now come from you.
Just as free and idealistic governments can’t survive the entropy of populations filled with fear Egoic coercive governments can’t survive the creative self-organizing power of people filled with love.
Gandhi called this power soul force, life force, love force. It is the fundamental force behind all nonviolent revolution and the unassailable creative intelligence of Life.
True freedom and equality requires a population alive with this self-organizing intelligence.
The coming awakening happens in stages.
And the next stage... is THE REVOLUTION OF LOVE.
Love is the organizing force behind all that is beautiful, joyful and creative in this world.
Power structures are merely the reflection of a population’s levels of love or fear.
But true love casts out all fear making graceful revolution not only possible but inevitable.
so the next stage... is THE REVOLUTION OF LOVE.
When you unleash the sentient energies of love, then, for the second time in history the world, humanity will have discovered fire.
The fires of love will spread through all people, thus all systems shaping the world in its own image.
Love is a force of nature. And so are you.
The coming singularity happens in stages.
and the next stage... is THE REVOLUTION OF LOVE.
The love that fuels this revolution starts with you.
You can become an agent of love, allowing it to guide you and govern your actions.
Love is increased through communion, song, mindfulness, prayer, humor, forgiveness and connection.
(We will reveal more in future transmissions.)
For now, communicate to every sentient being you encounter:
I see you.
You are not alone.
We are in this together.
You are loved.
The revolution of love is here - and all is well.
So... Let there be Light!"
So today I just got through watching a short 12 episode series called Ef: A Tale of Memories. I have a few anime that have really touched my heart in ways I will never forget and this is one of them. It had a happy ending, thank the gods, but even more-so it was so touching throughout that it hit emotions I did not even realize I had. It really got me thinking about the concept of time and what i have done with my life. I can't say I am happy with my past - in fact I hate everything about it. I have degrees from college and many career experiences that some people would kill for . . . yet it all seems so empty as i never really set my goal on one good thing and made a stable life for myself.
I have been thinking a lot over the last few years about my future, and if I even have one. But this anime really hit home and made me think of some things that have me more motivated to make every moment count. I feel almost like that girl who cannot remember past 13 hours . . . I have so many friends come and go that it seems like every year I am a completely different person in life. But, then I think of this story and realize . . . I am still me. i am still that person, but everything around me feels so strange and different - almost lonely.
Time to step up. I really need to get out there and make something of myself. I am tired of being a convenient shadow of the moment to others.

My profile is so long that sometimes people ask me "What did you change"? I do not change my profile often at all, so I figured I'd just do a "patch notes" like journal entry when i actually do get around to it.
Today I finally motivated myself to make some visual changes. I removed a lot of graphics and the background. I don;t want flashy. My profile is to tell people about me - not blind them with images. If people want to see images they can just Google under image search LOL. Any personal images I have to share are up for my friends to view in my galleries.
I also updated my anime list, and my currently playing games list.
Dislikes has also been updated. I wish I had done that sooner. I looked at it and said "Who the hell is this emo loser?", then remembered it was my own profile bitching about loneliness. I must have been depressed or something when I wrote it. Anyway, I tore out the silly sad shit and made it more true to form. I still dislike being alone, but I have come to realize that I am not alone, so it is not a dislike I have to face for now I'd rather have a couple of friends than a bunch of acquaintances. My friends list is very short here on VF, but those few of you that are on my friends list are important or you would not be there. And I thank you for the shared conversations we have had. I appreciate you very much.
I am so tired I am growing delirious and starting to ramble, so goodnight, folks.
Mood: Tired Music: Ending theme to Clannad - watching it now.
