Reflections After Depression Post

30 Nov, 2017

I made a really personal post the other day.

One part of me is embarassed about it.

It generated so much care towards me. A lot more than I imagined it would.

I really appreciated this unexpected stream of good will. But I thought the hard part was pressing post.

It turns out, the ha…Read More

NOT TO RE-LITIGATE 2017, BUT TO BE CLEAR GOING FORWARD

NOT TO RE-LITIGATE 2017, BUT TO BE CLEAR GOING FORWARD

To those of you
Republican and Democrat
Libertarian and Green

Who tell yourselves
It’s OK because with Hillary
We’d already be at war

She is a lot of things
Disingenuous, ambitious
And yes, a woman

But if the bombs fall
On…Read More

IF YOU WOULD BE SEED

28 Nov, 2017

IF YOU WOULD BE SEED

do not rush your fruit
you were not planted
for markets or profits
and not for parades

when your time does come
and it will
let your outer part soften,
rot and leather around you

eventually the stem will give
like a child
running off to play
with the others…Read More

Depression Post from Facebook

27 Nov, 2017

[[ UPDATE: To those people reading this now and feeling concern + care, thank you! I am so blessed to be connected to so many good people. Even just posting this was healing – in some invisible way – and, in the hours and days since, I have availed myself of numerous coffees, walks and talks wit…Read More

ADVICE FOR THE NEW

26 Nov, 2017

Be now a student
of light
and learn from crafty masters:

How to pull on the thread of being
and so
glitter
as a story
everyone knows

How to let your relaxation
become a hidden engine
that invites magic to roost
nearby

How to regard your shelves
of old misidentifications
as a …Read More

Today I want to give myself love, ease, patience and the knowing that it’s really all OK.

25 Nov, 2017

Today I want to give myself love, ease, patience and the knowing that it’s really all OK.

Can there just be a Saturday? Even in the evolution of my soul, even in the revolution of the world?

Can there just be this breathing, and my belonging to it, as a shell on the beach?

For that kind…Read More

Self Knowledge

24 Nov, 2017

The more I step into my power lately, the more I have the experience where I find myself realizing – remembering – seemingly for the 1000th time…

I only ever really learn a lesson or “get over something” once I take complete responsibility for the ways I was off in the situation. Once I am …Read More

My inner critic runs on psychological fuel made of un-tended

24 Nov, 2017

2 quick realizations:

1) I defend my right to be a victim. How hilarious is that?!?!

2) My inner critic runs on psychological fuel made of un-tended, rising emotion. The more I self-parent, negotiate my inner needs, and find emotional expression, the less of a need he has to come out and defen…Read More

The world really is waiting for what you alone know

22 Nov, 2017

The world really is waiting for what you alone know
and all the ways that you know it.

Trying to think will only make the Gods lose interest.

You always try to impress people
when what’s real has way more nutrition
than whatever you can invent.

Your only true virtue lies hidden
like a…Read More

God: You think a lot but you rarely speak to me DIRECTLY.

19 Nov, 2017

God: You think a lot but you rarely speak to me DIRECTLY.
Me: I know. I should pray more.
God: I only speak in prayer.
Me: But it scares me, to go on this journey. To make space in my life for true sacred prayer and speech.
God: You will go on this journey or you will not go on this journey. The…Read More
