my nickname


under_a_rock

lightenup

Sometimes when I post about a “darker” theme, I receive comments about how my nickname doesn’t jive with the content. Please allow me to expand the notion of my nickname to help clear up any confusion.

I use lightenup to mean adding levity of course. Sometimes it’s easy for spiritual people to get all serious and forget about fun and joy and laughter. After all, spiritual themes are the most serious of all; Life and death, suffering, world peace, that sort of stuff.  But  I also use it to mean adding the light of awareness to subjects. When shining light on dark agendas, they are exposed for what they are. Nasty, ugly, despicable, etc. Bringing that awareness to people could be construed as adding to the darkness.  I disagree. The darkness is already there, and there are those that use it for their advantage and that is what I intend to expose.

Tip up a rock, let a little light in, and watch the squirmy things run for their lives.

Light exposes both the beauty and the filth. I am joyfully shining light on both. That is also why I use that icon. It is a “picture” of how I feel in the light of who I am, doing what I love,
shining as bright as I am.

When you see something here you don’t like, I invite you to simply look away, but know that my only goal is to light-en  up the entire world we live in.

  1. And to all those who waste time trying to secure those rocks so they won’t turn over? There is no where to hide when the lights come on. That activity too, will be seen for what it is. Change is coming. You can either help it or be helped by it, into the light.
