I Choose You…

Love Of The Goddess

We put in work…

It is not invisible…

It is not disposable…

It is energy that travels at the speed of light.

Light needs no medium…

Light is consistent and in forever motion…

The currency of light is balanced by the value of what you see…

Is it real…

Is it reality…

Reality is what you make it…

I choose to make my reality visible…

I choose…

I choose…

To show it to you…

Because the revolution will NOT be televised…

The Revolution will be Evolutionized…

And we put in work to evolve in LOVE…
