Stacy Keibler's Post-Clooney Transformation


RICHARD LAWSON

SEP 4, 2013

Stacy Keibler is going through some things. The former professional wrestler broke up with George Clooney a couple months ago, and was faced with that biggest of questions: What do I do now?

Life can be strange for George Clooney's exes. Whatever happened to Elisabetta Canalis? Nobody knows! No one really knows.

Keibler would like to avoid that fate, of course, but she also needs to be herself, to find out who she is and live her truest life. And what better place to do that than Burning Man. Yes, Stacy Keibler spent the weekend at Burning Man, the great anarcho-hippie festival in the Nevada desert where people do a lot of drugs and hug each other and close their eyes real real tight and wish, futilely, that the world was different, that they didn't have to go back to their regular boring lives and instead just do this forever.

It's for young dreamers and old refugees and Stacy wanted in. And she seemed to have had a wonderful time, if her Instagram account is any indication. She took lots of pictures of hippie wastrels and sunrises and whatnot, tagging most pictures with #lifechanging or #teamlifechanging.

So she's feeling things out in that desert, her mind is expanding, her soul reaching. And that's good! Always good to feel yourself growing. But Burning Man? C'mon, Stace. You're not 19. Read a book or take a class. Change your life that way. Stumbling around Burning Man for a few days and then returning to the relatively jet-set life isn't real change. It's distraction.

Unless of course Stacy Keibler ends up moving to a yurt in Indio and really committing to this. "Where did Stacy Keibler go?" "She lives outside Bozeman with a guy named Satchel, his sister Kiley, and like eight dogs. She works at a river rafting place I think." "Oh." If that happens, then fine. Burning Man did change her life. But if not? It was just a weekend away.
This has nothing to do with Stacy, really, I just LOVE this author's viewpoint because it really resonates with me.  I run into so many people, particularly online who mumble about the 'awesomeness' of moments and endlessly post inspirational pictures on facebook but never change a single goddam thing in their lives.

So true. I know someone who is constantly posting inspirational quotes but in the meantime has't spoken to his family in over a year....

People are quick to deceive themselves that idealism is enough (and quick to want to escape reality). This article exposes that. Enjoyed reading it.

Yeah, you don't change your life on Instagram. You post it, but you don't change it...

I am very idealistic myself at times and I do change bits and pieces, try to stick to a new goal for instance - one day would like the courage to make some real changes - I live in OZ so anythings possible.

He's got a point. It's the old "stuff that's cute when you're 21 ain't so cute when you're 35" idea. I mean, some of the photos she posted of herself at this festival are just begging for ridicule.

Unlike the external transformation, spiritual-enlightenment does not necessarily depend on the tangibles... A person going through the process, may even have to go through storms with near/dear ones sometimes, live through difficult physical states, crush in on themselves, their desires/wants/needs, before making way for the precepts to dawn in on their soul..

Again... just generally speaking... Smile

It depends on where they really are Katie... not saying that everyone who is going through the process has already reached it's FINAL state, because there really is NO final state, before which tangible changes can be felt BY OTHERS...

And yes, we must discern well, on who is where, and what really is true... because anyone can easily get "conned" / "led-astray" / "fall into a trap" especially where the spiritual is concerned...

Sure... but idealism is a requirement ideally speaking Smile if one wants to pursue spiritual goals... and one does have to escape reality every often, to understand the surreal... But yes, everything is a process... not necessarily understood by everyone...
