I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

Greed is behind the killing, destruction, suffering, and harm of all life to satisfy appetites for more and more. The ‘accumulation of the most toys’, be it at the expense of others, doesn’t matter to the ‘greed vampire’ for he is a wizard at justifying himself as he forges ahead to unconsciously become a sociopath, or even a psychopath - insensitive to others. Even on a global level, the ‘karma of greed’ is speeding to the destruction of life for today’s children soon to be adults trying to survive from drowning in generations prior greed.

The world is on fire, be it a slow, increasing, unchecked smoldering that is always on the precipice of a flash termination or crippling. Insensitivity for others causes far more damage than any sensitivity that others have toward all life. Rational sensitivity is what makes it a better world be it with plants, your pets, children, partner, co-workers, community, and world at large. Ask yourself, if you’re in full awareness, and compassion for the other person(s) in your life? How well do your actions, or lack there of, work for others?

Being ‘better’ at the expense of caring consideration for others feelings, is ‘greed of ego’. You are always a teacher, and a student, never holier than thou. Give to people. Looking to ‘take, take’ creates and embellishes greed, and silently creates increased hardship for others. Life may be a puzzle, but why make it a more of puzzle by taking from the innocent to fill your ego’s selfishness and pocket. Help others out of love, not an agenda to serve your thirsts. Help without love creates a lot of mischief, be you a public servant, missionary, a friendly neighbor, or one of a partnership. Don’t make giving a duty. It make the other feel obliged and uncomfortable.

Too often we see what we want to see. Be free in the mind to see what’s right and sensitive. Greed is one of the seven deadly sins, and is a major factor for discord on all levels of life. Meditation is to empty the attachment to desires, and live with minimal expectation. Taking and hoarding is quite the opposite of giving and receiving, which comes from the heart. Greed is a bondage to habits that have become addictive and define you. Stop your life that serves mainly you more than others. Be the inner you, and see that all else will be taken from you. Why lose ‘you’ if it’s the only thing you will leave with? Spiritual-conscious you is all the inner qualities that give freely.

So when my straight friends (ok, these two straight guys sitting next to me at a diner last week) kept talking about the Final Four, it turns out they weren’t referencing this momentous episode. Their loss. The weeks of sweat, shade, and squirping have narrowed the field to the quarrelsome quartet of Rolaskatox and Jinkx.

Roxxxy spends the first segment establishing herself as the scholar of the group. First, she lays out the cogent argument that she’s here to win, while Coco was on RuPaul’s Settle-The-Drama-With-Your-Ex-Best-Friend Race. It’s an idiotic assessment of the situation, particularly because Alyssa and Coco weren’t aware that they’d be on the show together, but whatever. For her next feat of mental prowess, she suggests that winning will be made easier if she just lights all of Jinkx’s costumes on fire. Sportsmanlike and subtle. Third, she sagely advises Jinkx and Alaska that they can’t possibly take the crown because they haven’t had to lip sync yet! So wait, the key to winning is losing? This outlook explains much of Roxxxy’s past performance.

Suddenly, a pheromone is released into the air and the contestants are filled with bloodlust. Luckily, SheMail interrupts before the verbal attacks can turn physical. (Alaska, who proved last week that she has Slayer Strength, would probably have welcomed this gladiator-style showdown.) The mini-challenge that follows is a repeat of the season 4 puppet show: each queen is asked to mock a felt mock-up of another competitor. Roxxxy is thrilled because this is her opportunity to make fun of Jinkx (I mean, she’s really been holding back), but her inability to mask her disdain with even a thin layer of humor ends up tanking her skit. The win goes to Alaska, whose mini-Andrews is like a fabulous military drone that drops layers and catchphrases instead of bombs.
