If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! Simultaneously, life does and doesn’t make sense. We don’t have to know what that sense is. She who believes in chaos is as vital and correct as she who believes in destiny. Entering and embracing this work is moving beyond the contradictions, moving beyond the right and wrongs; complete happiness in spite of complete suffering. We are always changing, with that our deductions and needs change; personal storytelling is the process of living inside that change. It’s like watering your garden, knowing on an intimate level what your garden needs to flourish or wither, …

You Create Your Life, Stop Waiting.

You Create Your Life, Stop Waiting.

Afraid of being alone: You must love another wholly and fully. Afraid you can’t commit: You must commit. Afraid of being hurt: You must live without shields, walls or armor. You must give up asking and wanting and waiting. Right before you is an open door called creativity, through that door is the opportunity to do what you want and have what you want.

Living in limited space

Living in limited space

The being that I perceive is not exactly the being that I am, because I have a sense of myself, and that sense is always shifting. For example: If my parents tell me that I am ugly; I see myself as they see me. And at times I see myself according to the looks of others. But I really do control the sense of myself, and that sense of my own self is still always changing. When I’m depressed, all my physical senses are distorted by the depression I have. When I’m happy, I look and feel better, the world is brighter. I can see in different ways. I am …

Be Weightless, Let Yourself Go

Be Weightless, Let Yourself Go

I can remove all that I want from myself; I can release all that is heavy. Anything that is not clear, I do not allow. I expel everything that slows, weighs and holds me down. I can live without limits. This is strength. It is letting yourself go. Be weightless. Let yourself go. Relearn and transform your stories into powerful medicine. Set your stories free here!

Mindful Storytelling

Mindful Storytelling

The person who does not control their territory, their step, their imagination, does not control their existence. If someone is not conscious, they are taken over, not only outwardly but also with the thoughts and stories that assault them. For example: you live calmly with your wife, then catastrophe, suddenly you lose control because you’re falling in love with another. You don’t have to fall victim to that story, would you have to do with navigate in it, overcome the wins and sandstorms. Stay balanced, stay grounded. Amid the storms at sea and the signs, you must move forward calmly and look towards the port you’re headed for. http://www.christopherrivasstorytelling.com/ – …

When I know that it’s already broken, every minute with you is precious.

When I know that it’s already broken, every minute with you is precious.

We don’t know what it’s gonna be like to die. We don’t know what this love will sprout into. We don’t know what we might accomplish out of this precious human birth. We don’t know when this glass will shatter, when this wall will fall and when this love will crumble (the possibilities are endless), but when it does, we will say, “of course.” Of course, because it was already broken to begin with.

If There Is A God, We Are Here To Help Him

If There Is A God, We Are Here To Help Him

If there is a God, we are here to help him. This means that it is necessary to take ownership of the world and of ourselves. The worlds problems are my problems. Your problems are my problems. It is necessary that we do whatever we want to do with a full consciousness and with full responsibility and awareness that this too maters. Relearn and transform your stories into powerful medicine.

Maybe This Is The Apocalypse- All of Us Trying To Be Something/Someone Else

Maybe This Is The Apocalypse- All of Us Trying To Be Something/Someone Else

Most people want to be like others. They want to be like the people they see on TV or the people they claim as gurus or the cool ones or books they read or Tony Robbins.
