Iran.

Iran.

The land onto which I was born..

Iran.

A country which many people, out of ignorance, scorn.

Iran.

Fertile grounds enriched with the golden spice.. Saffron.

Iran.

Rich in music, textiles and Oil.. Which so many countries wish they would have won.

Iran.

It’s people.. A tapestry of colorful cultures interwoven with an inviting hospitality like no other…

Iran.

Where Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter bloom.

Iran.

Where a deep desert stretches its arms while it’s snowy mountain peaks reach towards the sun at noon.

Iran.

The birthplace of Beloved souls Rumi, Hafez, Googoosh, Arianpour, Jobrani, Ebadi.. Zoroaster.. so so many others..

Iran.

It’s children with ancient eyes.. smiling.. covering up hurt like a disguise..

Iran.

It’s Islamic Government that only cares for itself, grown powerful through manipulation, control and acts of silent violence because no other Government really truly could bother.

Iran.

A country where women are oppressed, beaten and tortured for their gender.

Iran.

A President that claims… Gays do not exist… That is because he kills gays with his Iron fist.

Iran.

A Religious Government which strips people of their freedom of speech.

Iran.

Where in addition to secular studies, religious studies are a requirement which teachers are forced to teach.

Iran.

Where the government bans unmarried men and women from walking together in the street.

Iran.

In the eyes of college students there is a free bird flying in the face of defeat.

Iran.

The place where with one look at a protest.. .. A lovely girl was killed.. Bah Yek Nega.. Her name was Neda.

Iran.

Will I ever return to the land where I first ever laid my feet?

Iran.

I will run to you with lightening speed.

When the power of love overcomes the thirst for greed.

Iran.

My Life Journey… From chaos to peace… The Beginning… Post No. 1

My soul is awakened to the moment… Integrated with my physical self… 

I wasn’t always aware of my connection to everything… 

Last year I received a download from spirit telling me I would “cross-over” in 2011.. This is the first time I am writing about this and only a handful of close friends know this…

I thought I would be transitioning… Most beings view crossing over as dying… I don’t believe in death as our only temporal state is our physical..  However, I believed what I heard… 

I did in fact cross-over last year… I just didn’t die. 

Quite the opposite… I began to live… Connected to everything… After years of spiritual growth enveloped by a myriad of experiences which brought so much pain and joy and every emotional color in between… I finally began to live as One…

That day… all of my fears related to disconnection dropped away. 

I felt a surge of love so immense that I began to shed tears of joy instantaneously… one of my biggest fears immediately ceased… The fear of bugs, insects, and the ultimate.. Spiders… I always have loved animals but had always fears and been disgusted by insects… After crossing over… I felt a connection of love even to them.. “They” became connected to “us”… since then and till now I feel the same vibration within the beings I once feared so that I do from my beloved pets and loved humans.. The passing of this fear was my minds strongest evidence, at least at that moment, of my full connection to the oneness of all. 

This is now…

And In order to truly convey my journey.. I need to start sharing with you… my beginnings…

I only have a few memories of my early toddler years in Iran… Most of them used to scare me..

Constant sirens alerting us to run into the basement for fear of warplanes dropping bombs on our homes….

An entire country turned upside down after a massive religious Islamic revolution which stripped basic civil rights of the people, especially women… an entire country swept up in fear by a proceeding war that would eventually cripple the economy for decades and worse… cripple people’s souls…

My family… always stuck together… and continues to…

and this autobiography will continue in my next post as well…
