Our government should represent the population. By placing all males and only certain races and sexual preferences in the congress, we have all done ourselves a disservice when we try to find representation on the national and state levels.
After leaving an unloaded bullet in a guest’s room at a prominent hotel, a secret serviceman, under the detail of the president, is said to have tried to return to the hotel room to retrieve the bullet, but only after the hotel manager had called the White House to report the incident. When investigators checked the said Secret Serviceman’s Blackberry, they found sexually suggestive messages to another government employee. Both are under investigation, after only 7 months of President Obama’s first woman to head the Secret Service.
I’ve always heard that when you want something done right, ask a woman. I’m a male, and I still believe that this statement, vying any prejudice about straight men, for the most part is true. I believe the days of the male dominated regime in government are changing. This may take some time, but the women and gay men, who represent about 65% of the country, see the need for a matriarchal rule to get balance back in the government.
I recently saw an interview of the women in congress. Even though the women were on both sides of the partisan barrier, all of them seemed to get along. Each spoke with such poise and understanding about the whole problem, not just a one-sided, partisan view. I believe we need a more balanced government with more women, and definitely some gay influence.
In the last census in 2012, 50.2 % of the population were women, 16.9% Hispanic, 5.1% Asian, and 13.9% African American. All of the rest of the population was less than 1%. Since it is very difficult to tell how many gay people live in the U.S. because of how many are in the closet, let’s say, for sure there are a documented 9.5% gay out of the closet, and probably double that or more in the closet. The Kinsey report said that 55% of all men asked were gay, but that has been debunked several times since the report. Of course, it was debunked by national census that only shares what people are willing to report. Trust me, when you go online to meet gay men and women, more than half are married or in the closet. The gay demographic is completely eschewed because of outright lying of men and women not willing to live an Authentic Life.
So, if all of us minorities are to gain the power that we deserve in the government, we must step up to the plate and vote. Even more so, if you are in a minority and in a position to run for office, you definitely should try. I don’t have the calling for public office, or I would step out. I have little to no knowledge about the government and law, which would make me a terrible candidate. I have, however, told my story of being fired for being gay before Nashville counsel in hopes that the story would be honored. I have many friends who would be perfect for a political position, especially powerful and brilliant lesbian women lawyers who often lead the way in public policy for GLBT people.
That being said, this blog had normally been reserved for spiritual growth. But as I see it, we can’t grow completely into our authentic self unless we have a place to grow. For instance, in Tennessee, I can’t marry the man I love because of the law. To be truly authentic and act in accordance to my heart, I would love to someday soon be married. But the law disagrees with my desire. For me to live a fully authentic life, I’m going to have to either move to one of the 15 states that allow me to marry, or do some of my own protesting against narrow-minded people running my state. If I don’t, I only have myself to blame for not having any rights.

Below is information that I will be sharing for about a month, as not every person on my list reads the blog every day. If you have already read it, just skip over it. Thanks for understanding.
A Year to CLEAR Challenge:
(Please Know: You Can Join Us At Any Point in the Year Challenge.)
The masses search outward for things that qualify them as a person, but I always go inward for that which quantifies me for greatness. At twenty-five I preached on street corners in NYC as an in-the-closet Pentecostal minister. One day I heard a still small voice say, ‘God cannot be contained in a book or a law or even in a religion. Dig deeper, reach further to find me, and you will find your authentic Self.’”
A Year to CLEAR Challenge!
The acronym CLEAR stands for (Compassionate, Loving, Enthusiastic, And Relationship-Ready). The goal of this project is to engulf readers in a weekly study that will transform them by removing blocks, promote self-growth, and give them wings to fly freely into daily life. Each week, by going to BoSebastian.com and choosing the Year to CLEAR Challenge tab, a new challenge or thought to provoke conversation, growth, and group functionality.
My vision is to make Finding Authentic You the book to have in your Kindle or on your computer. The book is a comprehensive look at growth—spiritually, mentally, and physically.
As a yoga teacher and student of the Ayurvedic tradition, I bring to the table understanding of physical challenges, the ability to overcome mental problems with Life & Health Coaching, as well as hypnotherapy, and expertise in meditation and spirituality as a minister.
The combination of all three in one book with an interactive connection to like-minded readers, for one year, is what makes this Year to CLEAR Challenge a must-do for every spiritual seeker.
The One-Year Approach to Change
No one believes he or she can change overnight. But success in change comes from the metaphors of nature. Seasonally, life changes all around us in nature. Finding Authentic You offers a gradual change perspective, looking at the triune aspects of change as in yoga: Body, Mind and Spirit.
Accessing the ability to change and finding yourself actually pursuing change must be a daily search, which I call getting to the “observer mind.”
In this frontal cortex of the brain we find the anatomy of change and the power to counter every negative trigger of the human process. The workings of Hypnosis, NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) are all positive actions to help the mind and body flow to a positive space for change.
Every aspect of FINDING AUTHENTIC YOU fulfills this constant need for diffusing the negative past and dreaming of a fulfilling future.
Step 1: Recognize That Change is Inevitable
Step 2: Release from Resistance to Change
Step 3: Understanding Change and Allow Spirit to Define It
Step 4: A History Lesson—About You
Step 5: Look at Your Past with Compassion
Step 6: Making a Strong Commitment to Change
Step 7: Dream Your Fabulous Future
