What is it? More famously known as the Epimenides paradox, this is one of the oldest known paradoxes having been first suggested circa 600BC. Greek Philosopher Eubulides of Miletus postulated “A man says that he is lying. Is what he says true or false?” The basic premise of this paradox is – “This statement is false.”
Wait, What? If “This statement is false” is true, then “This statement is false” is true. Therefore “This statement is false” must be false. The hypothesis that “This statement is false” is true leads to the conclusion that “This statement is false” is false, which is a contradiction.
To put it in simpler terms, I will assign the coefficient of (A) to the statement “This statement is false” which gives us:
If (A) is true, then (A) is true. Therefore (A) must be false. The hypothesis that (A) is true leads to the conclusion that (A) is false, which is a contradiction. Think that is confusing? We are just getting started!

Where do you feel “pressured” to fit in? Expansion – Contraction – Transformation. Point of Balance. Spirit experiences life in the Sacred Temple called “my body.” When emotions gain momentum – managing impulsive/compulsive actions becomes difficult – especially when it’s emotions that have been suppressed. Emotions are usually attached to another human being. For today – take a good long hard look at relationship attachments. Be totally honest with Self. Life is lived one day at a time. Be your own Witness. Forgive Self when forgiving others. For those trying to “let go” or “cut the cord” – try the following. Sit still – get quiet inside.
Repeat several times each day for the next 28 days:
“I release (first and last name) unto God. He/She is in his/her true place at all times. I am free, and he/she is free. I now decree that my words go forth into Infinite Mind and it brings it to pass. It is so.”
“Dying is a wild night and a new road.” ~Emily Dickinson
Momentum Rising. Spiritual Medicine. Open Road. Turn of the wheel. Seasons change. Moments and Milestones. God isn’t coming down from the mountain to save anyone – but God has invited everyone to “climb the mountain – because the view is awesome AF.” All that is ever asked of humans is to just show up for life – because – whether we can see it or not – Life shows up for us everyday. Today is a good day to start living! Show Up! All is well! ❤
“The great loneliness — like the loneliness a caterpillar endures when she wraps herself in a silky shroud and begins the long transformation from chrysalis to butterfly… It seems we too must go through such a time, when life as we have known it is over, when being a caterpillar feels somehow false and yet we don’t know who we are supposed to become. All we know is that something bigger is calling us to change. And though we must make the journey alone… soon enough we will taste the rapture of being alive.” ~Elizabeth Lesser
“The world is full of lonely people afraid to make the first move.” ~Green Book – Movie
Unspoken. Body Language. Observe. Rewind. Review. Rethink. Water is the most powerful force on Earth. It can smooth sharp edges and flows through and around anything that tries to stand in its way. Without tension there will be no movement. Don’t want to NOT GO. Cosmic Wake-Up Call – the Collective Unconscious is awakening. Truth or Lies? What do you believe? What’s real? Avoid hyperbole. Learn from the past – integrate hard-earned-wisdom. Take a deep breath – exhale slowly – Delete the past. We begin again. All is well. ❤
Life is a process of elimination – a Circle of Cycles. February 10, 2012 – a Self-Relationship cycle was initiated. We relate to “Self” through Others. Stop holding “Self” hostage. We have to “grow” into our Truth – which evolves us. For the past 7 years we have gone to great lengths to FIND the Truth. Outer traditions and inner limits have now stripped us bare to see clearly – Peace is a CHOICE.
The last week of March 2018 a choice was made – one last time. Do or die. Mid-June 2018 the “choice” created fireworks. By the first week of December 2018 it was obvious efforts had failed. The fork-in-the-road was fast approaching. Stop competing – start collaborating with “my Best-Self.“
Fate is what happens to “me” and Destiny is something “I choose.” It will take until May 18, 2019 – to choose the new path – when we begin another new cycle. For today – stay classy – be practical and ask Self, “why do I keep giving energy to something/someone who doesn’t VALUE that energy?” It’s the perfect day to spend time with “my better Self.” All is well! ❤
