A BFF COLLABORATION
Let the Story Be Told, Let the Myth Unfold
“We hold this myth to be potential
Not self-evident but equational
Of another kind of Living Life”
Asking “What if,” is where many writers begin the premise of their stories.
In that same spirit, Roslyn J. and Carmellita asked “What if we brought our gifts and talents together to build a community and company centered on Expanding your Creative Bandwidth and the Inspiration to Live on purpose.” How would this idea look? What would this idea feel like?
Hence, the idea of Blue Lotus Living was born June 2003–yes 2003.
Now, Blue Lotus Living, the idea, is in full bloom and has become a content creation collaboration between Roslyn J. and Carmellita. But wait…
…this isn’t their first collaboration…
Their first collaboration was getting through 4 years of college as roommates and receiving their Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Speech Communication. And well, after deciding neither of them wanted to be News Anchors or Press Secretaries, the dynamic duo took on the city of New Orleans collaborating on projects such as poetry performances and dramatic interpretation performances at Ebony Square and the Neighborhood Gallery.
After Hurricane Katrina, Carmellita and Roslyn J. lost most of their personal possessions, but not their dream of inspiring others to live on purpose and discovering what their creativity can do. They moved their crazy, yet innovative ideas to the Northeast Louisiana area where they focused on community projects with the Louisiana Endowment of Humanities. Through these successful and exemplary projects in the arts and humanities, Roslyn J. received several honors and Carmellita was named a Literary Scholar.
Present-day, the Queens have set their eyes on Memphis, Tennessee. The website has been Launched April 4, 2020 (4.4.2020) and a new creative adventure has begun. This creative venture explores ideas in Neo-Soul Evolution, Black “Afro” Futurism, Ontological Metaphysics (metaphysics of being and reality), Cosmic Flow, Creative Life Design, Creativity Enhancement, and Productivity Enhancement.
Wrapped up in a Digital and Multimedia experience, the idea, in its full development, is an exploration of what we can create on purpose while we evolve as creators.
BLUE LOTUS: THE MYTH OF THE WATERLILY
Why the name Blue Lotus Living for a content creation collaboration?
Again, it all comes back to myth and story. Both women grew up in cities along the Mississippi River. Some call these areas the deltas and some call these areas bayou country. The murky waters of the Mississippi have stories that have been untold, myths that have yet to unfold, and heroes/sheroes who have gone unsung. Roslyn J. and Carmellita have been like lotus flowers growing along the banks of these myths and stories and living among these heroes/sheroes all their lives.
Similarly, the Blue Lotus’s habitat is along the Nile River in Egypt and East Africa.
And there are great myths and stories told about Ancient Egypt and the beautiful Blue Lotus.
For instance, the Blue Lotus is associated with Nefertem in Ancient Egyptian Mythology. Nefertum represented sunrise and was considered the Young Atum who was born from the Blue Lotus Flower. Hence, Nefertem became known as “He Who is Beautiful” (the beautiful one) and “Water-Lily of the Sun.” In a version of the Book of the Coming Forth By Day, a passage reads: “Rise like Nefertem from the blue water lily, to the nostrils of Ra, and come forth upon the horizon each day.”
Nefertem, “The Beautiful One,” was celebrated in the city of Memphis and has continued to be associated with aromatic scents, beauty, and great fortune just as the flower from which he was born. Many believe that Nefertem didn’t have a female consort, but his consort was the Blue Lotus. His mother was Bastet (represented dance, divine protection, celebration, perfume, and the rising of the sun) in her youth and Sekmet (represented healing, empowerment, and known as “The Powerful One”) in her adulthood. His father was Ptah (represented creativity and art and known as the “Architect” and the creator of art). This mythological family embodies the framework and the many possibilities of what Blue Lotus Living as a community and company can become.
Here’s a little secret, neither Carmellita or Roslyn J. was aware of the correlations between Memphis and the story of Nefertem before they chose to live and create in the City of Memphis Tennessee. Considering these factors, both women believe the decision is Divinely Inspired.
The Pillars of Blue Lotus Living…
Create. Produce. Flow.
Creativity happens when the imagination (image-nation, image realm) is stimulated. Ontological Metaphysics explores the connection between the imagination and reality. Reality is about the evolution of consciousness in the alchemy of time and illusion (play in the ecospheric simulation). Imagination is tapping into the field of infinite possibilities and returning with the elixir. And creativity is that precious elixir–an elixir which promotes the perpetuity of inspiration. Inspiration leads us to soul purpose. With a soul purpose in mind, body, and spirit, we can expand our creative bandwidth, reach states of higher consciousness, and experience soul evolution.
In the ecospheric simulation, time, though an illusion, plays a role in creativity. Wasting time disturbs the alchemical process of creativity and what creativity can become in our reality. Productivity is skillsets and tools we can formulate to work with various algorithms and deliberately get more done on purpose. Working with these tools through daily actions helps us to master the cycles of time and the patterns we see in our lives. As a result of the knowledge and wisdom gained, we can make changes where changes are needed, we can manifest our dreams, we can successfully navigate our reality and create the life we want to live.
When we align with Cosmic Flow, we transcend the old distorted and mundane worlds. As such, we experience the ease of creativity, love, abundance, peace, joy, and scholarship with beauty, grace and freedom. In this ecospheric simulation, Cosmic Flow maximizes our creative bandwidth and in Cosmic Flow we know and reach our soul purpose and progress in our soul evolution. There are 6 systems of Cosmic Flow in the ecospheric simulation: the flow of health and wellness, love and devotion, knowledge and wisdom, wealth and success, peace and harmony, and involution and evolution. It is through these systems we experience abundance.
A Mission in Co-Creation
We are entering a new dimension wherein we will witness the best of training in Creatorship. Though many of us have learned the principles of the Human Potential Movement which emerged in the ’60s, we have evolved beyond its limitations. Now, we are gearing to display magnificence and beauty in ways only our imagination can conjure. And this display of beauty and magnificence can be referred to as the Neo-Soul Evolution.
As Living Souls, we have sat under a distorted light for a very long time. Currently, we’ve made a mighty shift, a quantum leap to a new light, a light in which the full spectrum of the Rainbow can be seen. Harmony has returned. Perhaps, it may not seem so because when you have been under an unnatural light for generations and within the twinkling of an eye shifted to a full spectrum natural light, it takes time for your vision to adjust.
Accordingly, our mission here at Blue Lotus Living is to help with the adjustments. Blue Lotus Living, through its content, serves as a daily re-mind-er that you are a Creator in a co-creation process (A Content Creation Collaboration of your own) with the Creator of ALL. And while in this co-creation process, you are involving and evolving as you create. Your life, your art, using your creativity, gifts, and talents are a part of your training in an ecospheric simulation. As you expand your creative bandwidth, you will gain the power to change worlds.
For it is when you truly know and understand how to manifest, really manifest, you can make a joyful transition into your Kingdom and Queendom, take on your role as creators, create universes, and expand All-that-is.
In other words, you are the Divine Plan.
