Wd_allan's blog listings. Feed Zend_Feed_Writer 1.10.8 (http://framework.zend.com) http://community.beliefnet.com/wd_allan WD Allan's Blog: Why I Departed Facebook! Sometimes changes mean that we need to steer our path towards some things meant to be included in our lives and to be remembered as important in our lives, and sometimes, it might also mean that its time to turn away from choice others that aren’t quite serving us well any longer.

Recently I made the very difficult decision to turn away from facebook and its influences if at the least for a while.

I’ll be open about it all. After a long and deeply introspective period of thought and meditation on this, I came to decide that facebook was starting to weave its maneuvering way into my unfolding path in adverse ways and when such matters of my life also begin to influence those most crucial of my relationships, its time for such a so-called social network to move its way into the sunset!

It really is a fascinating thing you know, how such an imaginary virtual world of the machinations of technology can to begin to flex and manipulate its way into our thought processes and our feelings up to and involving those relationships and the things we value most!

I recall some passages I’ve read from persons who for their own reasons departed from facebook choosing to head to others instead. I now can “relate” as Dennis Hopper used to say in 1969!

What I found myself most concerned with aside from the preservation of my own dearest of friends and family who I had remained connected with there, was the potential loss of producing and furthering a positive message out to the world!

I still have and will retain active connections on other networks and websites, namely Twitter, LinkdIn, Tumbler, Instagram, my own website www.wdallan.com and others where I still am able to keep my expressions active, a bit reduced for certain, but still getting out there to the world.

I simply found myself constantly weighing the immediacy of facebook’s influences and commanding expressive power against the influences it seemed to be both creating and also beginning to hinder within myself. I have a path that is insisting upon my attention now and included among my major goals is getting myself down to my new home in Salem as well as to finally get my books published!

For these reasons, after investigating facebook’s help section, I settled upon the choice to “deactivate” my profile instead of permanently deleting it.

Never burn a bridge you may one day wish to turn back toward again it’s been said!

I have met many incredible souls on the pages of facebook! From America to Britain, Ireland, Germany and throughout Europe! From South America to Australia and to the East, facebook has introduced me to good and powerful souls and for this reason I found myself unable to wipe it entirely from the future possibility of my path!

I simply at this moment cannot allow the pages of facebook to stall either the critical importance of the work that lays before me and nor can I allow it to alter the strength of how I feel about those who are most important to me in my life!

Priorities are priorities after all.

I heartily apologize to any of you who may have searched for my facebook profile and found it gone!

Please think of it this way. It’s not gone for good, just on an extended hiatus while its owner gets some very needed work done!

More than anything else…

I want to THANK YOU FOR BEING MY FRIENDS THERE!

I value you in my life more than you could ever know!

All my love, light, and the brightest of all blessings to you!

WD Allan’s Blog: The Momentary Darkness in Neighborhood America In a time littered with darkness of expression, it’s easy to begin to lose your perspective on the brighter scenes of the moments of life. Nowadays we all seem to be constantly beleaguered with a constant river of tumult and viciousness of character, the audacious nature of which is difficult for anyone to even begin to contemplate in realistic perspectives let alone to try and accept as being real!

Between so many wars and actions of terrorism targeted in the name belief, with the current nationalist tensions that could rival some of the most confusing days of the late 1890’s when most or all of Europe was literally an armed camp loaded with paranoia and all just awaiting that single spark that could ignite the worst of all their fears. With the continuing presence of the unsteady foundation of local politics and economic fears creating an unsteady environment of unsure security as well as the revering of a “Mayberry” way of life seeming to be long since past our possibilities. On top of all of these and many more, we all sit and ponder if even in the most brief and silent of ways, why it is that those thankfully rare of individuals in our midst choose to do the things that they do?

One of the stanchions of hope and praise that we’ve always looked upon and that we’ve always had working in our favor was the image and the visage of the positivity residing in neighborhood America!

Why is it then that we again are witnessing the presence of such horrific and terrible events as we have seen unfold?

Well, certainly in psychiatric circles there will be many who will recite chapter and verse on standards and diagnoses both potential and historic. In locally political ways there will be the releases of supportive thought for their community. In Policing terms from our brave and gallant men and women serving our communities there will be assurances relating to their hard work to see to our safety and our security. All very proper and all serving to help the rest of us to find a sense of soul between one another throughout all the tragedy!

Then there are still the core questions that will still remain regardless of all of the hope being expressed. The question will still remain.

“Why?”

WD Allan’s Blog: Our Only True Wealth! Grand good mornings and a San-Frabulous day to you all my dearest friends!

"Wealth" is a mindset a soulful bit of life, through gaining true perspective, it releases us from strife. If only you could focus on your magick through your day, then each and every footstep would seem so much more like play!

The wealth of which we mention isn’t counted by a bank, not placed into your pocket, and not worshiped like some saint. The only true and sounding wealth you’ll ever never sink, is that wealth of your true spirit that releases all your strength!

Have a MAGNIFICENT DAY dearest friends! MAKE IT ROCK FOR YOU!!!

WD Allan's Blog: You SHINE ON BABY! A GRAND good morning to you all on this fine day my dearest friends!

Determination discovers incredible sources of strength! Tenacity enacts incredible fortitude for staying your course! Perseverance is the path on which we all eventually unfold our destinies! The only things we must ever truly conquer in life are those walls that we ourselves have erected around us that keep us from BEING everything we were always meant to be! Don’t listen for an instant to anyone who remains intent on looking down upon you!

You turn right around and blind them with the shining light of the strength your spirit! When you do, you align the manifestations of Determination, tenacity, and the fortitude of perseverance by indicating that you will NEVER give anyone the satisfaction of making you feel lesser than!

Then let them know, as Zig Ziglar said so well:

“As a matter of fact, I’m just getting warmed up!”

You SHINE ON BABY!!!

Love, light, and the brightest of blessings!

WD Allan’s Blog: The Road of Revelation There’s a road we all travel of dirt and gravel and even paved with gold, of all paths we choose eventually all prove this one for young and old. This road you see runs straight and see’s its bumps and arcs and bends, it’s the road of revelation along which anticipation in life we seek and send.

We begin to wander along this road when first we set our toes, as we live we take and bears its wakes and struggle through winks and woes.

But the greatest of things that this road brings is the life we have so longed, no matter of where, or how we bear, the journey which we’ve prolonged.

Then comes that day once we’ve long strayed and traveled toward land and sky, one pass we face too vast its pace we’ve struggled through every mile!

That ultimate day after we’ve long strayed and traveled in coming to face, is when we stop and pause on top to bathe in happiness’ place!

Our journey we’ve bore through events and more all reaching this moment in time, here now at last we’ve arrived and cast our mark through life so fine!

Relish in your journey through achievement and difficulty for they all will come to arrive at a view that surpasses all you could ever even conceive!

Love, light, and the brightest of blessings!
