The World Falling In Transition

Against Me, the World Falling

Everywhere. In transition,   I am transition. I am Transforming.

My emotions are fluid, and move from one to the next, like water around rocks.  Tumbling and bubbling. Smooth and splashing.

I can feel like everyone is against me, no one cares at all, or everyone has it out for me. These feelings are survival tactics on autopilot, hard wired in my brain, that was molded at a very early age at the hands of an abuser.   Twisted dark in their own depths of pain.

In my head, somewhere so deep that I barely perceive of it, and even then, only a little too late, hides my unconscious layers I can only glimpse and have yet to fully meet.  That self, myself,  that stays ever constant and busy with the acts of survival.  Resisting, hiding crouched low, like a castaway aboard my human ship hides my child.  Never again to be hurt so completely.  Betrayed, absolute.

It is hard to put into words how I feel in my daily life. All I know is I feel.  Constantly, I feel.   Sometimes it is a good feeling. so good it can only be described with words such as joy, bliss, amazement.  Other times, it is so bad, the words used are agony, despair, desolation, distraught, depravity.

All I know, is that my moods flash like sunlight thru leaves.   Bright then shaded, smooth then broken.  From one to another in constant movement an emotional dance.   One minute, tears of amazement pour forth from my over filled heart! Moments later, the same tears turn to a rushing torrent pouring from a bottomless empty space that nothing has ever or will ever fill.

My emotions are fluid, and move from one to the next like water around rocks.  Tumbling and bubbling. Smooth and splashing.  Everywhere. In transition,   I am transition.

I am Transformation.  I am Transforming.

 

Imagine You’re Raw

Imagine being raw, rubbed bare, tender red and exposed.  Like burned flesh never closing over from the torture of the fire of the childhood you can barely recall.  Yet it’s there, recalling you, over and over. When you least expect it, you stumble.  Over and over again,  the pain and the torture, over and over, laid bare, raw and naked.terion miller

Day after day pretending and faking the mask held tight to your face.  Tight enough to hold the tears back.  Always so close to breaking, bursting like a stormy sky.

Never knowing what to do or to say.  It wouldn’t matter you think, no it doesn’t matter, because you KNOW they hate you anyways. You don’t know why, you show kindness, you give and they take, and you try some more and you try too hard.

The emptiness, the hollow loneliness of nobody connected to you or you to them…and then you’re wishing you were the air.  You like the idea of being everywhere, of being nowhere, you understand it in your deepest core.  You long for it constantly.  Always, the longing is always there.  Wanting to be in the world, wanting to be between the worlds, anywhere else but this world.  This moment. This Now.

Raw—-That is how my days are

If you like me, are diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, your days may be similar.   We live everyday fighting our minds and the hardwired misconstrued view of how life is.  ….

Imagine walking through life with all your skin removed and a slight breeze blowing, that is how life, how the hurt of it feels like to me.  It feels like pain.  Intense raw gut tearing pain.  For a person that believes everything derives from the basis of Love, pain and the lack of love in their environment is a dark abyss of agony.  For a person that feels only love, it’s like being at the bottom of a dry well.

This is for those who want to understand someone who walks this path daily, so that maybe you will be better able to understand when you witness them stumble and fall, try and fail.  Every day.

I am sitting here,  not knowing what I want to say, but knowing how I feel, how it feels this thing called life, to my raw open heart and mind unbounded.

There are no words to describe or fill,  the vast empty space, of loneliness and disconnection, of how it feels at times when you live with borderline personality disorder (BPd).

 

Money Be Gone Forever

I want to be able to get rid of the money system.

I would rid the world of money.  Yes I said it.

I literally fantasize about how in my perfect world there would be no money.  If I could make it so, in my fantasy scenario, the world would wake up, on a seemingly normal day, and find every account, in every bank, in every country, for every person would read a balance of $99999999999999999999999999999.

Yes, accounts maxed out all the way, and there would be be no announcements, no commentaries from the incessant media.  Silence on the money matter. Isn’t it rude to talk about wealth, anyway?

Let the people do as they will.

It would be an awakening of wealth for the whole world.  With absolutely not a single thing the banks or governments could say or do,  to stop or control it.  Sure,  people would go nuts for a bit. There would be a buying frenzy of… I don’t know,but I would LOVE to see what kind of proportions!  Can you imagine what some of the backwoods “never had nothing Billy-bubbas” might do if they could? Suddenly everyone had all the money they ever imagined!  Crazy shit would go down.  Great film would be shot.

I don’t know what I would do if I suddenly could do anything

….no, I take that back, I do I would head straight to the airport, because I want so much to see the world, but thinking more logically, I would know, chaos is not really a good time for vacations.  The crowds I imagine would be brutal.  With people on a worldwide spring break party bash blowout, traveling, would definitely be out.  So down to the first realtor I would head to buy up the biggest chunk of land on the mountain I could find…that’s what I would do.  Then I would hole up,  start planting a big garden, and wait.   While everyone enjoys getting the wealth and the materialism out of their systems, I would wait for the crash.  It would be something like a sugar crash, and it’d be inevitable.  Gorging on sweets makes everyone sick eventually.  It would come and I would be up on my mountain, waiting.

Every night,  every account,  everywhere, would reset and be maxed out again.

Much quicker than most people would think I bet, the shopping delirium would subside.  Shelves would be empty.  No one would be showing up to stock them.  Things would be a mess, a huge, chaotic mess.  That’s when it would happen.  People would naturally start to team up and work together.  It would be small tasks at first, to do this and that, probably something charitable, suddenly people will remember the elderly or something.  Momentum will start building and organization will start to emerge, because who wants to live like royalty in such a shit hole.  Imagine how trashed it would get with everyone on party mode for a few weeks!  People currently have no respect for anything, I say let them have it all, tear it all up themselves, and learn like children do, if you trash your toys, there is nothing good to play with.  So the people would do what people do, form groups/tribes and start organizing and doing the things that need getting done, …community would happen naturally, because, it too is inevitable.

Tangible Goods Represented by What?

It will take everyone having an extreme excess of money for a period of time, before it will be accepted that the world will work, with or without, the trading of worthless, paper,  promise notes for actual goods and services. Tangible things with true value for ridiculous worthless paper or better yet, oh how about figment-ed bitcoins…WTF is that … a pixel? a thought?..it’s NOTHING people!! Nothing that represents something.  We are going from worthless paper, to ideas digitized to represent worth, to put value on real concrete things.  Call me a Rockefeller because ideas, I’m rolling in them… wait let me get my pixel book….

Yet, a world with no money will never work until all the people who have been the “have not’s” get to have, and the “have everything”,  understand there isn’t a difference to their lives by sharing and giving equal life to others(It will actually add value to their lives but we can’t expect them to go leaps and bounds, baby steps, baby steps).  Life is plentiful, there is enough for everyone.  The system was put in place to be so.  Those that have been can still play the part of greedy asshole pigs if they so choose. Their lives, their movie, their elitist attitudes.  They will just have to learn to cope watching everyone having what they need, or perish the thought, what they want! Oppression, done, over.

It’s going to be a big adjustment. The world isn’t fair.  It’s their turn to take part in the uncomfortable other side of life. It’s all about the experience, right?

(yes I realize I do NOT take into consideration the guns in our current societal system, why..? because this is my fantasy and guns have no place in my mind so I often forget them. If everyone has everything, what is there to hoard or protect? )

GINGER’S POST ~ Reclaim Your Accounts

​Repost from Freedomsolutions.com

I do not make any claims if it is valid or real or if it works.  I know I wish it did ,but thus far have not read any definitive proof.

This is a complete instruction package that I have created. With forms and phone numbers

The information that I would also like to include and I will call Tank to get into this a little further, please forward this to Fisher so he may review it and if any of you have questions or need help, I am here for all of you.

Here is the latest stuff I have found this weekend and have discussed and sent to Tank but here they are belo

1, This is the new prepaid credit card
https://www.federalreserve.gov/publications/files/government-prepaid-report-201707.pdf

2. This is the way to get access to the large funds held with your social security accounts

http://privatesidesolutions.com/the-ssn-master-account-and-dtc-information/

So in order to be clear! Steps to take to access social security master accounts
Redeem Birth Cert.
File UCC in state of birth and in one of the three redemptions States.
Post your bond with Treasury.
Once you receive confirmation (green card) from Treasury bond is activated.
Apply for CUSIP number through www.cusip.com.
Open up Commercial Account and TDA account.
Apply for DTC registration. Obtain Counsel.
Bond becomes live again on stock market.
Pull down funds from TDA through pass through account.
Start paying debts.
You can never walk into a bank and get cash from this commercial account! You may only pay bills. Once transfer bank receives funds they will immediately issue a MT760 to block this account. This MT760 can not be monetized only debt payments!

3, http://www.cusip.com/ this is the link to find your CUSIP number is you have not found yours on your social security card or birth certificates.

Locations | America’s First Federal Credit Union
Bessemer 2131 19th Street North Bessemer, AL 35020 Phone: 205-424-8542 Fax: 205-325-3989 Monday – Thursday 9:00 …

This will be the master universal number it is Americas First Federal Credit Union and the routing code is 262083881. this number comes right off the Social Security Administration from locations and Banks to use. They will tell you its a Federal Reserve Bank, but the Social Security Administration is not Federal or the pseudo use of the word, in any way. Make sure you make this clear to Paypal and Amazon, when you try to make this your primary account, believe me I am creating a game called the Paypal Game, if you get thru the Matrix, you get a prize, I guess I am there I can write echecks and have a World Mastercard. I even got a letter from Paypal, I may be the most responsible customer they ever had I think I am up to 16 phone calls, over 12 hours and had to go up 4 levels in reps to get this done, but whatever I had to do to get real people real money I DID IT.

This is what I have been working on this weekend along with a volunteer list from every State, of volunteers in case they are needed to work the Hospitals, Welfate systems and Meals on Wheels and other critical services like Grocery Stores and gas stations. I have almost 400 people ready to help from all over the country and world. We are organizing teams in every State, whether they are needed or not to be sure that no one is left behind.

Thanks Ginger

Below is the complete instruction list, but this information changes every single day, I report what I find with the latest information everyday.

Complete Instruction List

Family

This is a sample copy of the steps to take to access your TreasuryDirect.gov I call them the TDA accounts. Keep in mind this is a long process, you must take ownership of your accounts and follow through by being persistent.
The process to get Amazon and Paypal accounts set up is extensive but after September 15, 2017 and all ACH Payments (Automated Clearing House) will be effective for all. I believe complete and precise instructions will be made available but I have taken the steps and tried to make them easy to understand instructions for all.

This ACH system is a brand new system and you must remember they do not know who you are so you must send off identity documents your IDs so they know who you are. It is time consuming, but once completely finished the results are amazing. Do not get discouraged, its a process I find if I was stuck I would call the people back and stayed very persistent to make this work. The faster we all do the steps the faster this will be up and running for all of us.

Steps to follow

1. Gather your Identity Documents which are your Birth Certificate (long form), your Drivers License, Social Security Card as well as your passport are your identity documents. You are required to have two of these identity documents but I explained if you do not have them you may use a utility bill or cable bill that is for your home.

2. What you are trying to do when accessing your routing codes to use for the banks is to figure out which region you belong to which there are 12 total in the US. You may find your region through this link
The Fed – Federal Reserve Banks

3. What you are looking for when you go to search for the routing code that is for you, is a Lessor Bank that links up with your Federal Bank region bank that was established in step 2. I do this by looking at the chart off the
US Bank Locations

US Bank Locations

The most convenient online tool to find and review banks in the United States. Nearly 7,000 banks with more than…

4. You want the routing codes to match these criterias: Has ACH payments and Fedwire payments and the routing code will begin with the same number that is the first number on your social security card (front of card). In other words mine starts with a 4 so my number would be a 04 number that offers ACH and Fed Services.

5. This is a sample chart that contains numbers that may work for you they match all the criteria in step 4 except you must call Telecheck to get the routing codes verified. If you do this next step, it can save reversals and lots of time.

6. Call Telecheck services the phone number is (800) 366-2425
Telecheck Services, Inc, Phone

7, When you speak to Telecheck tell them you would like to Verify your accounts to make sure they work. They will go check the routing code and the account, and they come back and see we see no holds or declines on your account. This means this is a good account number so I asked if they could send me a copy of the verification and I was told it would take 30 days and I said that is fine.

8. Now you are ready to tackle the big beasts of Amazon and Paypal, because you know that your accounts are verified and this gives you leverage with both Amazon and Paypal so I went to each site and made sure all entries were correct and changed all phone numbers and addresses and pulled off old credit cards that were expired. Then once I was done I began with adding my TDA Accounts onto the perspective websites. I went to My account on each site and went into payment options. At the very bottom you will see Add a Bank Account. This is actually an echeck or an ACH routing payment that you are adding to your account. I careful checked the numbers that I entered into the verified routing codes as the routing code and entered my social security card number on front is the Account number. If they ask it is a business account as this is the business of your name.

9. Once all the payments options are added and set it will prompt you that two small deposits have been added to the account. To enter the amounts listed off the ledger. You can not do this step as you can not see the ledger so the best way to do this is to call each service Amazon 1 (888) 280-4331

10. Tell the clerk at Amazon that you can not see the ledger as this account is a private trust and you do not see the ledger. They will tell you they can not see the ledger for 7 business days. Mark on a Calendar the day to call them back. Do the same steps for Paypal 1 (888) 221-1161

12. Same process for paypal, mark down on the calendar when to call them back.

13. Once you get verified ask Paypal about the credit card and check services because they have preapproved World Mastercards for each American citizens.

14. Open your mind and begin to think of all the services you can now use with your accounts.

15. I have found trading platforms, and merchant accounts, as well as social security credit unions.

16. You can call any vendors that offer echeck systems and do a routing code over the phone until the Mastercards arrive and then we will all be set up.

17. The Mastercards are the reward for completing your Paypal accounts as there is a prepaid Mastercard issued for all of us through the Comenity Capital Bank for Paypal. You will still have to go through Paypal, even if you do not have a Paypal account as this Mastercard has a preapproved code in it, and until I finished having my Paypal set up properly the code would not have been included in my application. I expect to see my World Mastercard within 5 days.

On the Border of Personality

What Is BPD?

Standing on the Border of Personality

Borderline personality disorder can not only be difficult to live with , but be difficult to understand. Even the experts can sometimes need to really study up so that they can recognize and diagnose it without the standard stigma attached. Diagnosis is particularly difficult in teens and young adults because many of the symptoms are typical teenage angst, and then there are the ones that are not.

Borderline Personality Disorder or BPd is a mental illness that is characterized by emotional instability and vulnerability. Someone with BPd has difficulty regulating his or her emotions and has changeable moods, I call them faceted moods.  Emotionally,  people with BPd can go from normal to breaking the spectrum on “any emotion here” ,0 to 90 in seconds flat.  We are labelled extremists and drama seekers, but we are not, in our minds everything warrants our sadness, happiness, anger.  We view the world thru idealistic lenses and traverse it with our hearts laid bare and raw on our sleeves.  We don’t know where we fit in, and our emotionally driven ways don’t make fitting in very easy at all anyway.  All this leads to several symptoms and behaviors typical of the disorder:

  • Impulsive and risky behaviors
  • Self-loathing or overly compensation with arrogance 
  • Suicidal thoughts and/or actions, ready to leave this world at any time, lost value of life
  • Quick and frequent mood swings that can be subtle or extreme
  • Episodes of intense depression, anxiety or anger, the darkness of being becomes too much
  • Inappropriate reactions, extreme reactions, emotions out of range for the context of the situation
  • Unstable relationships or no relationships at all.  

It’s a hard diagnosis.  It’s a hard roll of the dice to be stuck with to be sure! For those of us that live it, it’s constant work, constant processing.  I talk to myself AND answer myself and it’s the least of my “crazy”.

If you have Borderline Personality Disorder and suffer through the empty dark desolate days, where we long to go home, be gone, or as I like to say, I want to be the ether, everywhere and nowhere simultaneously.  Here are a few things we have to remember about being who we are:

  • We are hard wired this way.  They can scan our brains and they look different.  We are brain damaged so to speak.   We didn’t get the bond and protection we needed as infants and our baby brains were growing, forming, and wiring themselves to their environment.  Millions of synapses making connections, wiring the thought processes. Nature vs Nurture, we are the ultimate double whammy. and survived it.
  • Many people who have lived through the trauma of the kind of childhoods many of us have had,  end up with split personality disorder. I can’t imagine if there were more facets of me to deal with that couldn’t remember each other! So lucky us.  We were strong enough to hang in there.
    Woman with steam coming out ears

  • Sometimes it is a blessing to be so emotional sensitive.  We truly feel, for good and bad, we are in there knee deep in the emotional muck of living and that is what being alive is about.
  •  We are strong enough to hold the intense emotional energy.  Emotions of such magnitude generate energy of the same magnitude.  We are like walking beacons and batteries.  We tend to the extremes that others cannot and we remind people of the fragility of being human.  When we wound each other through our actions or words, it causes pain and suffering.
  • We offer a different view of the world that only we with our rawness and extremes can offer.  Differences are good.
  • We are incredibly strong and resilient. Worthy of love and friends. We just need people as special as we are.
  • and lastly, remember …It IS what It IS… the past is gone, non existent and the future is yet to exist.  We can only  be who we are supposed to BE and we can only be where we ARE.

Mortals need not apply.

DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR TIPS

Dialectical Coping

Daily Dialectical Coping.  It’s a form of  constant mindfulness that I have to maintain in order to get through the day.  Always questioning my thoughts and feelings, “Are these real? too extreme? can I validate them with facts?” I think it hinders everything in my life because it takes so much focus.  How can I focus on other people when I have to keep myself in such hard check?  Friendships, dating (what a joke) everything gets neglected because I am dealing with “me” so much.  Is this wellness? Does it get easier?

Relationships are my goal this year.  ITs the final step on my wellness list.  I have a dating profile up, I think I will post it here on the site so everyone can see it.
These are some of the things I work on daily:
My Tips for thinking Dialectically
  • Avoid words like “Always” and “Never” they are limiting and words are powerful.
  • Practice not speaking when someone is talking to me, be a better listener and see other points of view
  • Remember that no one has source truth, every person is reflecting their own subjective version of what they think is truth
  • Use “I feel” statements, it’s less abrasive than “I think” and it’s more accurate since it is those pesky over the top feelings causing the need for guidelines to begin with
  • Remind myself that the only constant is change and change is good.
  • Accept that different opinions can both be
    legitimate, and that everyone has a right to have theirs no matter how stupid I think it is.  Don’t tell them they are stupid.
  • Consider that we all have both good and bad qualities in differing quantities
  • Check out your assumptions,
    – do not put words in other peoples mouth or expect others to read your mind, and remember it’s NOT ALL ABOUT YOU
  • Try to appreciate how different from eachpicture of terion miller
    other we all are and how interesting we each are in our own quirky ways, and remember everyone has their own personal bullshit to deal with, you haven’t been given extra.

Ouch oh yeah,Oh yeah he does,
he likes to pull on hair

Line up ladies, I’ll show you how
brains and seduction work
First you hold my feather duster,
and I will polish all the wood.

Up and down, round and round
is how I get to working
Oh my my is that a leg.
it’s definitely not a gherkin

My mind is wired a little faulty,
Yes it’s a little twisted
Such a muddy pond of players games
yet we all just keep on fishing

I may call dibs, and stake my claim
He’s different than his brothers
the rest of you splish splash away

So many words, and sarcastic banter,
Lets not forget the laughter
you can look it up, if you don’t believe me
if you feel you really have to,
It’s in this thing that’s quite profound,
he calls his dictionary
collegiate thick and quite big around
close your eyes if it scares you
So many words you can’t fit in
His pen stroke goes on forever
He makes a  basket of sentences
To carry you off like a bandit
So listen ladies

I’m here to say,
He’s really not so scary…
On the Plateau of the Cumberland
Painting walls with dirty words
He’s Ripe, He’s randy and he’s ready
for the taking.

ORDINATION & HELPING OTHERS

I have been ordained now for 7 years.  I have performed exactly 0, that is a big fat zero, weddings.

Not that I am unwilling, or anything, it’s just love and romance tend to stay very far from my grasp, my clutch and sight.

After a while a person can forget that they wanted to have a little side wedding gig.

Possibly forgetfulness played a role in not having any romance come a courting, knocking down the doors to this heart of mine.  I am working on being more focused,  and installing a mental doorbell.

I may not have joined any couples in marriage as a minister, but I can say, I have actually ministered quite a bit, and really love that people share their lives so intimately with me, that they trust me in the inner sanctum of their emotions.  It’s a very special thing and I am grateful and hope that I will always have the very best words, perspective, and understanding that fits the moment.
