Self Segregation and Subjugation of Other

For eons, we have sliced, diced and otherwise organized ourselves and the world in attempts to understand the same. We've adopted parlance, accepted philosophies, and constructed ways to structure our individual nature, each other and the systems around us. Human, self, ego, soul. Super-human, super ego, over soul, higher or deeper self. Personality, intellect, intuition;... Continue Reading →

How Do You Know Where You Are Going?

“Go now, and wander For the welfare of many, out of compassion For the world.” ~Gautama Buddha Sometimes I'm given street signs or maps during visions and know with precision where I'm going. Maybe not always how I'm going to get there, when, why or for whom but I know where. My first directional vision... Continue Reading →

Blessed Dark and Holy

"When I run after what I think I want,  my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain.  From this I understand that  what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There... Continue Reading →

Culture Clashing

The familiar life horizon has been outgrown; the concepts, ideals, and emotional patterns no longer fit; the time for the passing of a threshold is at hand. – Joseph Campbell A personal experience connected to the universal one of desire for community, the dangers of secrets, and bridging the past and present with something resembling...

Gently Waking to a Spring Homecoming

Some things can't be denied. Won't be for long. They have the capacity to wait for us to arrive to the space where they've been all along.   When still water rises to meet me And the sun lays its hands on my back, It's easy to dismiss the gentle sounds of homecoming.

Money Matters

Today, no matter what it takes, we ride home together.  ~ Brian Andres It really does. When we live in a state of poverty, we are imprisoned by the limitations of need. Health, food and shelter provide feelings of safety. Safety allows us to feel vulnerable, creates the capacity to feel hope and share that with... Continue Reading →
