Becoming Someone Else

“When we can’t stop thinking about our problems, our mind and life merge. We become lost in the illusion of the dream. We could call this a ‘rut,’ but it goes much deeper than that. Along with our actions, our attitudes and feelings become repetitive. And we form the habit of being ourselves. To changeContinue reading “Becoming Someone Else”

Riding the Fox

“And, when we grow up we must never forget that hidden, down deep within us is our forever inner child resting, silently forever waiting forever hoping that one day we shall, remember it.” Athey ThompsonSeb McKinnon Art, “The Moon’s Daughter” ***

Moving Though It

“We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds –Continue reading “Moving Though It”

Gifts

‘Gifts’ are one of those malleable concepts that may take time for us to personally realize because sometimes they may seem more like curses. At first our natural talents or proclivities may seem intrusive to us or even unwanted, or perhaps on a positive side they seem mystical or surreal in a sense, but notContinue reading “Gifts”

Defining the Self

The previous post was on the “SELF as Master,” meaning that in this context the SELF here was referring to the God-force SELF—the ALLness—the Everything. But even the ‘ego-self’ that most of us struggle to control, is a bit more diverse than saying it means ‘pure ego’ which also has its own range of implications.Continue reading “Defining the Self”

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”
