The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Mainly the Ugly

The Good, The Bad, and Mainly the Ugly: Storytelling’s ability to reveal what is, what truly is

Storytelling’s ability to reveal what is, what truly is: It’s pretty human to want to identify with the good and avoid seeing the bad. We have to see the bad. Women or men, it is only through recognizing our bad, our ugly, our foolishness, our mistakes that we learn to grow. The more we become aware of our foolishness, of our fear filled stories and silly habits, the greater will be the awakening of a new, more compassionate story; the more we realize how we have been growing in or own foolishness. Your actions, your words, desires and fears are not bad or negative in and off themselves. I’m not …

What is the cost to never hurt again

What has been the cost of our determination to never hurt again?

What has been the cost of our determination to never hurt again? To never fall or trust or be used in that way again? What has been the cost of everything we have created to keep us safe (what we think is ‘safe’)? How have our defense strategies designed to keep us safe actually become mandates that arrest our growth, comfort, and perpetuate the story of worst-case scenario? How much of our life is built up because we don’t want to be hurt, because we are unable to heal, because we are unable to trust ourselves and trust the world, because we are unable to become vulnerable? People really want …

In order to create

In order to create it is necessary to throw yourself off the top of the building.

  At that moment, you are creating without knowing where you were going. Maybe the fireman will catch you, maybe there will be one of those big pillow-like things that will cradle you, maybe the ground is made of jello, maybe you aren’t falling, maybe you’re flying, maybe not. If your chief concern is security, you have to take the stairs. I create the needing security, creation creates security. Artists take leaps, and know they are secure in the unknown. … Don’t let the old new try and create a new project, you have changed, you are something else, let that thing do the crafting. … An artist predicts the …

The Gift Of Life

The Gift Of Life

The Buddha said, “the gift of food is the gift of life.” With 900 million people hungry… Let me be food. Let me walk into the world knowing, I am food.

I am food that replenishes and repairs. What greater prayer/goal/mantra/dedication is there then to be food and nourishment for a hungry world? I am food. I am food. I am food.   If you find joy and value in what I do and share, please consider supporting with a …

Living The Question

Living The Question

What did my face look like before I was born? Do I wake up when I sleep, or do I wake up when I wake up? Is waking really sleeping? Who am I? What does it mean to be here? What if my tears aren’t liquid, but hard, frozen ice with geometrical points, that can cut out the blindness and make me see? I have a lot of questions, a lot, o answers, just questions. Rumi (the great Persian mystic/poet) speaks about not allowing the lack of an answer to create disparity in you; but rather holding the question, living the question, until one day we live into an answer. …

Every Human Body Is An Altar

Every Human Body Is An Altar

All places are open doors. Humility is the key that opens these doors. There is nothing to wait for Nothing to receive. You are not a stranger or a Lone Ranger, but a participant. All of this is impossible without the others. Perfection is not possible Though excellence is. Beware of your story Your story contains thorns. If you keep it You will lose it. If you give it, You will finally be able to have it. You only own what you can let go of. Each thing in its own time. Enlightenment means being yourself. To find oneself Is to give oneself. Beneath the skin Is the soul. Develop …

The Gift Of Life

Imagine, being so secure in your well-being that ALL your actions have others in mind?

Most people in your life rooms and in your jobs are coming from, “Me me me, how can this help me? How can this serve me?” And you’re the one walking in with “You you you, how can I help you? I’m good. How can I serve you?” While everyone else is thinking about their own well being, you know you’re good, so you’re thinking about everyone else, how can you serve them, so they can get to your level? Think about how that propels you forward in this life; because who doesn’t want the person around who’s there for them, really there for them. Simultaneously, who doesn’t want to …
