Being with Changing Times

Chaos happens. It feels like we're amidst uncertain times. How do we ride this wave of change? Is the Sonoma County blaze, which ravaged our cities and countryside last month, leaving so much disaster in its wake, a freak accident? Or is it the herald of big changes underfoot, as unusual climactic conditions portend things to come? How do we be with all the not knowing? How do we be with disaster...

So for those who are struggling, I want to take a few min...

Will You Stand Next to Me When I’m Broken?

Will you stand next to me when I’m broken? Or will you go somewhere else - to let me be alone To let me be private To let me grieve, to be shaken, to be less than perfect So your vision of me isn’t marred So you can remember the good times Me healthy Me laughing.

What the Law of Attraction doesn’t tell you, that you really need to know to make it work

The Law of Attraction has risen in popularity over the past couple decades, similar to the philosophy as I learned: Thoughts are Creative. This is a beautiful, powerful, direct way of working with energy. What you focus on, you attract. What you think about, you create. Sounds simple, right? It's true - partially. Having high anxiety? You are likely to co-create your fears, or live like they ar...

How do we belong, and be different?

The river doesn't need another river, the river needs a mountain to gently carve, over time, a deep path all its own. Without the mountain the river has nothing, it becomes a floodplain, or simply wet earth. With a mountain the river can find its own way. And the mountain needs the river, to help it shape itself into becoming, to provide colorful life on its edges, offering its strong stability wh...

I knew

Yes, you heard right. I knew. This is the part I had a hard time admitting in my last post. I'd admitted it to a couple people I trusted, however, I only skirted around it in my last post, saying that I wasn't listening. I mentioned my fear.
