Saying No to Conditional Love

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter.

“He dug his heels into his horse’s flanks and sped down the path. He heard the others call out behind him, but he ignored them. He was sure Karl and Johan and the others would have searched the rosebush and that entire area carefully enough; there was nothing to learn there. But he wanted to […]

Midnight Visits

Loving myself lopsided…

“The play is done – the curtain drops, Slow falling to the prompter’s bell; A moment yet the actor stops, And looks around, to say farewell. It is an irksome word and task; And, when he’s laughed, and had his say, He shows, as he removes his mask, A face that’s anything but gay.” ~ […]

Christmas as a Meditation on Kindness

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.  If you are honest, people may cheat you.

Leaving the Nest

“Don’t listen to those who say ‘you taking too big a chance.’ Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today.

The Elephant Elder of Chiang Mai

On my thirtieth birthday I woke up to find that I could see auras around people.

Living authentically in 2012

Most people I know who are ruled by ‘time’ (days governed by clocks, diaries, and heavy scheduling) are disconnected from themselves, each other, and the natural world.  Work, rush and worry occupy every space in their lives.  There is never enough time!  And that feeling of ‘running out of time’ always leads to pressure, stress, […]
