She and I

Empty promises made in between the dreams of this wakeful dreaming.
And I’m paying her dues.
She sleeps through the tears.
While I weep for her fears.
As she asks, “where have all the promises gone to?”
I cannot answer her.
I submit and let the agony of her longings trickle out of these eyes.
Who promised her the sky?
She speaks stillness, but I do not understand.
What isn’t she telling me?
I submit and feel the pangs of her aching heart until the rising temperature of this body subsides.
I’m tired.
Let me sleep dear soul.
I toss and turn.
She won’t let me.
“Something big has already begun” she echoes into my ears.
Oh foolish heart.
Will she come to realize it is already over?

When Your Life Just Feels Right

I have to say, the first half of 2019 has been a blurry coming together of everything I've ever dreamed of and everything I never thought to fear. All that remained un-faced in my psyche and all the potentials and possibilities I kept at bay came tumbling down. Truth stands so clear now. Stunning and thawing that not even the icy giant Neptune could ever cool me down again. A convergence of self.  An orchestra of aliveness.  A cleansing of karmic dust. A true birth. I'm grateful.

To look right and left and see you've never flown alone and never will is a balm to my soul.  My instagram got hacked requiring a new account altogether and I've been feeling compelled to keep myself light and nimble so that the flight to the top of the mountain and th

Your brain hallucinates your conscious reality

Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience -- and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it. How does this happen? According to neuroscientist Anil Seth, we're all hallucinating all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it "reality." Join Seth for a delightfully disorienting talk that may leave you questioning the very nature of your existence.

What does it mean to Honor the Self?

Such great wisdom from Dr Nathaniel Branden: “ The first act of honoring the self is the assertion of consciousness. The choice to think, to be aware, to send the searchlight of consciousness outward toward the world, and inward toward your own being. To fail in this effort is to fail the self at the most basic level.  To honor the self is to be willing to think independently, to live by your own mind, and to have the courage of your own perceptions and judgments.  To honor the self is to be willing to know not only what you think, but also what you feel, what you want, need, desire, suffer over, are frightened or angered by, and to accept your right to experience such feelings. The opposite of this attitude is denial, disowning, repression, self-repudiation.  To honor the self is to preserve an attitude of self acceptance, which means to accept what you are without self criticism, without lying about who you are in a pretense aimed at deceiving either yourself or someone els
