Our Ordinary Lives

“We all have encounters with the sacred; we just have to cultivate the eye that can perceive them. We have to see what’s already here, interwoven with what we claim is human and mundane. We have to take inventory of the magic that conspires to love us in and through our ordinary lives.” ~ MegganContinue reading “Our Ordinary Lives”

Trauma Survivors All

As have many before me, I’ve been through personal trauma so I would never minimize anyone’s trauma experience. But when I saw this graphic, I reacted strongly to it—especially the “…We’ve had to fight for our ability to think clearly and know who we are….” For me that is SO true. I think a ‘survivor’Continue reading “Trauma Survivors All”

When Words Fail

Secrets

Hey, who doesn’t have secrets? There are secrets that we keep from others—even secrets we keep from ourselves about our own lives. You can claim to not keep ANY secrets from others (or even from your conscious self), but I’m pretty sure you have something deeply stashed somewhere that you aren’t comfortable sharing or evenContinue reading “Secrets”

Living In an Inverse World

As the graphic above describes: Welcome to the inverse logic of an inverse world that we all currently inhabit. What I’ve noticed lately, amidst all the daily acrimony and carnage, is that if there is one thing that this chaotic time is offering to us, it is a much closer examination of our most unquestionedContinue reading “Living In an Inverse World”

Believing What We Want to Believe

“Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes that see reality” ~ Nikos Kazantzakis      Earthschool Harmony *** Reality is often a reflection of our inner beliefs about the world around us: Beliefs about ourselves—like WHO we are, WHY we are here—beliefs about our perceived tasks in the world—including our own sense of purposeContinue reading “Believing What We Want to Believe”

Irrational Logic

Perhaps the world makes sense in some perverse way. Or perhaps it doesn’t. But most of us believe that it MUST make some type of sense for us to continue to live comfortably within it. Because if the world made NO sense, then wouldn’t that make us as senseless and purposeless as the world aroundContinue reading “Irrational Logic”

Something New

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.” – Eckhart Tolle  Love the image. Think the artist is L. Roche, and hope s/he doesn’t mind my sharing it here so others can appreciate its jewel-like beauty. As forContinue reading “Something New”

‘Meaning’ Is An Internal Experience

Again, I’m just sharing a good source of info and inspiration. The online company “Sounds True,” founded by Tami Simon, is a great source of both. Here she is interviewing one of my favorite Jungians: Dr. James Hollis, whose focus is always on finding more ‘meaning’ in our lives. It is well worth listening to,Continue reading “‘Meaning’ Is An Internal Experience”

A Loving God

We humans are amazingly self-focused (for survival) and because of that natural inclination, we tend to view the world around us as simply extensions of our own ‘humanness.’ That leads to interpreting/comprehending the world in which we all interact with certain proclivities; i.e., we anthropomorphize just about everything that we don’t truly understand—or in aContinue reading “A Loving God”

The Gray-Scale Zone

Over the last 25 years, I’ve been trained in many healing modalities—many techniques used to help facilitate a client’s progress during their own personal healing journey. In other words: I know ‘stuff.’  I can do ‘stuff.’ My more spiritual work began with the Japanese energy-therapy practice of REIKI.  Then I received training in Karuna REIKIContinue reading “The Gray-Scale Zone”

“Context is Everything”

Just ran across an old Alan Watts audio called “Context is Everything” (Excerpt from the audio program and companion book, Just So: Money, Materialism, and the Ineffable, Intelligent Universe by Alan Watts – Context is Everything)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKm-oQVcm74 I mention it here because it further substantiates something I’d earlier written about in this blog on theContinue reading ““Context is Everything””
