I’m thinking of starting up a web-page that would enable us human beings to make official requests for our next incarnation.
Of course, it would include basic information like,
what species would you like to be next time,
what gender (if applicable… for example, I don’t think sea sponges have gender specificity),
what part of the world (assuming you want to stay on Earth, because I think we would need to have SOME guidelines to help shape things)…
if you have particular requests for parents, siblings, children, etc…
Would you like to request a certain height, weight, personality traits…
or maybe you’re cosmetic enough to have eye color, hair color, and/or vocal range requests…
I imagine there will be LOTS of requests for lovers… or to avoid certain lovers….
I will code the website to route your requests directly to God.
It really wouldn’t do any good to send the requests anywhere else.
While I don’t think God is particularly interested in reading long explanatory essays about why we think we deserve certain things, I will include a brief section for you to rate your own performance this lifetime so God will have at least a general idea about what a good person you think you are.
Any other suggestions for the website… I’m open!

DRAGONFEST MAIN RITUAL – August 4th – The theme is “Re-growing our roots” so I figure we’ll focus a ritual around wild hair dye. I’m thinking we can sort participants according to element and give everyone a streak of color that reflects their birth sign: orange for fire, blue for water, green for earth, maybe purple for air… up for discussion – please let me know if you want to help facilitate the ritual – more info about the festival here:http://dragonfest.org/
CRESTONE EXPERIENCE – August 9 to 12 – I am happy to be on staff this year, leading dances with Bernie, Bob and all you glorious dancers! – More info here: http://www.conscious-heart.org/WonderBob/Peace_Dance.html

In case you are interested in my personal submission at the “next incarnation website…”
I am asking to be reincarnated as a domesticated cat in post-mummification Egypt.
I am asking for my owners to be a very nice lesbian couple with no children, no dogs, no swimming pool, and no motorized vehicles or noisy appliances (including lawnmowers, leaf blowers, vacuums, weed whackers, or clothes dryers).
But I want them to keep a small koi pond well-stocked.
I want them to give me a dignified name with a little edge of a fear factor… maybe Athena… so all other humans will know that I am to be respected and loved.
I do not want to be spayed… but neither do I want tomcats to exist anywhere near my abode at anytime in my life.
Thank you, God, for being gracious, benevolent and responsive to the humble requests of this very good person!
I love my children, my partners, my car and I think the current president of our nation is an adorable bad-ass.
Please see to it that all my requests are met along with any other specifications I may not have thought to cover, but that I would have asked for if you had made me smarter or more foresightful in this lifetime.
In the name of Jesus Christ, Jim Henson and All that is Holy,
P.S. To RSVP for women’s circle, D-fest main ritual, Dance Leader workshop, or whatever… please call or e-mail me before I become a cat: (970)227-5275 or firstname.lastname@example.org
