The Playa Beckons and Calls Me Home

Postby Laughing Forest » Thu Jul 31, 2008 4:02 pm

Humble greetings my Playa Family

The philosophy thread seemed the most appropriate place to put this as I think the Burningman philosophy is *so* going to help me manifest my needs.

The stars have finally aligned and with just four years to go before we stand at the at the cusp of the Dreamspell prophecy I find myself with the need – the hunger - to once again go home back to the playa.

Burningman calls me.

As Babylon burns my final ascension on the playa awaits. Though for now it is in jeopardy of being postponed due to a shortage of green energy in the form of legal tender. As I write this in full awake meditation consciousness, I am comforted in the All Knowledge that this blessed, enlightened, loving come-unity will provide me with that which I seek.

A miracle ticket.

But to ask for a miracle without intent to repay with a kindness of some sort casts a pall – a gloom – on the miraculous gift I know awaits me. So that I might accept such selfless love from one or more of you readers I ask that in return for a ticket I be allowed to repay The Giver with my own expression of gratitude and Goddess Grace and Dakini energy.

I have experience in and am willing to perform many of the mundane but necessary tasks that our current living situation on this Earth plane requires. For instance, I am willing to house sit for you up to six weeks if you so need. I can probably extend such a situation should you be fortunate enough to live either in Marin, Tiburon or Mill Valley as both my small but budding yoga practice and aural analysis practice are currently located in Marin.

I am also available to perform chakra cleansing rituals as well as discreet purifying colonic irrigation to augment vegan dietary practices. I am versed and certified in the Bhutanese tantric art of Tae Eet Boo Tay and will provide a rudimentary overview of the arts (sorry this particular gift offering is only available to my playa sisters as male energy tends to introduce cosmic fluctuations into the ritual)
I perform past life regression workshops for both pets and their owners. These workshops are designed to both reveal and cleanse away not only the past trauma of various, unpleasant childhood incidents but also seeks to address the more subtle trauma of owner (‘master’) and pet (’slave’) dynamics from a non-Maoist, non-Marxist perspective.

Further, I have extensive experience in coaching people living in small group settings such as intentional households in San Francisco on how to facilitate conflict resolution especially as it applies to groups in live/work space dynamics. I specialize in artists living in challenging often cramped live/work settings and can show how such groups can effectively manifest loving, non-violent change in their situation using healing, holographic imagery to guide them through to a point of final resolution by tapping into the pure Goddess energy which cradles all of us.

So my plan is to ‘hold place’ while the Universal One manifests for me that which I seek so strongly. The Ecstatic Dancer races in my mind as I imagine the goodness of my playa family praying that my needs become met for I know that there is at least One brother or sister reading these humble words who will do what is right and what is needed by a fellow traveling Sister seeking a means to return home to Black Rock City.

For those dark and skeptical haters out there who would challenge this particular means of getting my needs met know that my shamanic practices allow me to dismiss your criticisms complete in the knowledge that until you can understand, invoke and incorporate the Higher Purpose Lessons which I and my Playa Family have been able to successfully integrate into our lives that your words will have no strength and no power.

Jah Bless my playa family. I know that my prayers will become manifest and, when the Universe answers those prayers I look forward to meeting many of you at our city in the desert. In fact, should the stars aligned I hope that I might break bread with some of you and perhaps share in your village. Again, I offer my wisdom, experience and Light Presence in cosmic exchange for shelter and bedding and good drink should any of you kind brothers and/or sisters be interested. I look forward to hearing from you and offer sweet blessings to each and all reading this invocation.

Om Shanti and Universal Love to You All

Haha! The bitch is also willing to "trade" rent-free housing in extremely expensive places for a ticket!
If there is a God, you won't be at Burning Man wasting valuable air.
I must say, this one takes the cake. I'd sooner give a ticket to a DJ!

Fortunately, your words of bullshit that you try to disguise as poetic also have no strength or power!

Hey, I need someone to house sit during burning man.

You guys, don't harsh my buzz.
I plan on bringing my Makita Chakra Polisherâ„¢ and also will be writing citations for insufficient chakra on the playa.

I will be manifesting new words to use as verbs too.

I think Laughing Forest is serious. How about getting a job at a fast food restaurant like KFC or McDonald's for a few weeks to raise the money for a ticket. You will not only make some much needed cash, but also new friends and discounts on some very delicious food! Who knows, maybe there is a career there! :shock:

im afraid there is just not enough snark in this world to truly do this post justice.

so, in the spirit of the Gift Economy, i will pray to the Almighty Jerry Garcia that he / she / whatever gets a ticket, because i just GOTTA meet this person.


and give them a bath, cut their hair, and tell them to get a fucking Job.

Okay, so you need a ticket and in return you'll massage my aura, stay in my house, eat my food, tell me to quit eating bacon, communicate psychically with my cat, then give me an enema?

...

I don't even know how to react to this.

Ahh...the work of our grand mistress sock puppet artist on display. Skillfully done, I might add.

11.0 on a 10 point scale.

Edit: Definitely impressive!

Edit 2: Fuck, I'll go ahead and say that post is a real work of art.

Who needs an IP address when you have a gloating confession?
In any case I was quite impressed and I'll leave it at that.
