We do not reject ourselves unless we have forgotten that we are love. We do not reject ourselves unless we have turned away from our true nature – and we do that by arguing for our own unlovability - by judging ourselves as unlovable.Read More
The Blog: Writing From My Bones
There’s the rub. Life force is not pleasing. It is wild and unpredictable. Look at nature and you see yourself. Wild and unpredictable. Not always dark and stormy. But always what it is, always changing.
We know we cannot get nature to conform. So why do we try so hard to get ourselves to conform? We are nature. We are not robots.Read More
We exist in an unknown sea with only small islands of surety. Life is truly a creative act.
If we keep this at the forefront of our understanding and develop our capacity for creativity in order to be in the unknown consciously, we will thrive. These are five reasons why.Read More
There is a deep space of mystery inside of you, inside of me, inside of every one of us human beings. The cavern within is our inner world and it is the world of the 'right brain' - one way to speak of the mysterious nature of our consciousness.Read More
I want to seduce you...
...out into the bright sunshine, out into the light where you see the brilliance of your own reflection; where you understand the significance of your presence here on earth; and where you also accept your insignificance enough that you let go of your mighty plan to save the planet and instead relax into the joyous shape of who you’ve always been, offering the creativity, beauty, and power of this simple you as a gift to this world.Read More
We are not meant to live alone.
Not just physically alone. We are not meant to believe in the falsity that we are simply human beings on a planet that is just a big rock. We are not meant to believe that there is nothing beyond this place. We are not meant to live as if we are alone. Our living well can only come out of our living connected to both the Earth and to the light. Our living well comes out of knowing we are in direct relationship with the soul of the Earth, with her as an alive being, and filled with the light that infuses us, available to us, always filling us with each breath, in every moment.Read More
In a very simple way,
you have two competing voices - the voice of the Self - your essential nature, an inner knowing that often speaks in a quieter tone - and your personality or persona or ego. The ego isn't bad or wrong. But it is a young voice that is centered in a kind of self-protection. It is immature. It favors either self-inflation or self-deflation. The true voice is neither. It is simply Self.Read More
My life has been a journey to become real - alive and fully feeling.
For the past 22 years, I've stumbled through this spiritual journey, which I now see has become a human journey.
I am not sure when it turned. The intense craving for something unknown, something beyond, something, greater than myself, turned inward toward my own heart, this aging body, this intense soul. It is here that I found the spiritual. It was in the flowers, trees, and birdsong that I came to know and remember the magic of the sacred call to remember oneself here on Earth. It was in the touch of his skin on mine, that my soul began to vibrate with the beautiful intensity of desire I had seemingly lost for years.
We as a species are being asked to find our true power within, a power that grows when lived in relationship with life, a generative power. When power is not used against itself, but rather used in service to life, it flows and is generative. I make the distinction between power-over and power-from-within, which is also power-with because we can then all live our power alongside each other. We are powerful with each other.Read More
