If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! ​Hafiz wrote, “I understand the wounds that have not healed in you. They exist because god and love have yet to become real enough to allow you to forgive the dream.” ​We must care for the world and all living beings and plants in order to survive ourselves. Cooperation within a species in order for that species to survive. Escaping from suffering is something I have to do for me, and of course, for you. There is no room for passivity. This is not a one way process. Being human is a matter of …

Rest In Peace

Rest In Peace

Do not wait till you’re body is dead to Rest In Peace. What a cop out on the joys and ecstasy of rest. Rest now. Rest easy. Be in peace now. Enjoy rest now. Between the practice, between play, between the exercise, rest. The actual rewiring happens when you are sleeping or at rest. And if we could go into a state of total not-knowing, with no thoughts, that’s the best environment for the brain to rewire and rest. Rest.

Awakening Is About Lifting Everybody Up Together

Awakening Is About Lifting Everybody Up Together

​You are as valuable and important as anyone who has ever given you a tour, a teaching, or a lecture. Just because you or someone has a podium, stands on a stage, or has a spotlight doesn’t mean they are superior to you or you to them. We are in this together. Are we here to maximize our own reward or to share the fruit of our labor?

​ The Social Media Prayer

​ The Social Media Prayer

​This is dedicated to all of us beings who wander around darkened with delusions, not knowing our own lives are the truth, not the ones on the screens. Misguided in desires, wandering around with lust and clinging, why not me? O, to be him to be her; not knowing our own beautiful selves as great bliss. Compassion for miss conceiving beings who wander around not knowing that our own minds and hearts are born free from the need to compare to others. Compassion for all of us who are trapped by the presence-habit of addictive and objective veils, not knowing we are the truth. May all of us stuck in …

​ Intelligent Faith

​I see the bloody horror in the depth of my being Despite my green juices and charity donations. The truth that I may and can inflict pain on others. I “own” all my evils” I could do anything, I am capable of everything. I can be anyone I have condemned as separate from myself. The way not to fall into that trap is to make sure you keep nothing hidden in the closet. Keep everything out in the open.   If you find joy and value in what I do and share, please consider supporting with a recurring or one time donation of your choosing, between a cup of coffee …

What We Love Most Is In Us, Of Us

What We Love Most Is In Us, Of Us

​No matter how wonderful something is, when we break it down and look deeply into it, for it’s secrets and mysteries, we see that there’s nothing in it that is separate from the thing itself.

​ A Being Without Faith

​ A Being Without Faith

If faith is strong and pure, anything can happen. But if we lack faith and devotion, and even if the God and goddesses themselves were standing in front (as they are) of you, you would get nothing. Hey being without faith is said to be like trying to make a stone float, like an armless man in front of treasure, like trying to grow a plant from a burnt seed, like a blind man trying to find his way in a temple.
