When We Have Crippled Ourselves with Absolutes

 "If you understand it, then it is not God."  - St. Augustine When I was a child, I made messes, as children do.  And, as parents do, mine would ask me to clean my room.  I would begin, not by tidying but by enlarging the current mess.  This perplexed and frustrated my parents, and I in turn would also feel frustrated, because they could not see, could not embrace my process. ...more

The Girl I Once Was

The difference is as miraculous, as mundane as the ever-cycling day and nighttime. She used to be so sad, so small.  And maybe she is still, but less.  Life was one big contraction, growing inward while never releasing, birthing, breathing out.  Each year was a new level of rot growing down into her being, her heart an abscess.  And she did not know. No one that mattered had ever taught her in this fragile, formative years of her starshine, of the intrinsic value of every one of earth's vibrating lives, hers included. ...more

In Marriage, What Is More Important Justice or Love?

In Marriage, What Is More Important Justice or Love? I remember when I was younger and dreamed of having a wedding and finding my great love. I knew that I wanted a family one day, however my perception of marriage changed after my parents divorced. I was one the kids in my neighborhood who had a two-parent household.

Jesus a Metaphyscian from the Mystery Schools ~ Spirit, Soul and Mind Embodied in Matter

 I was sitting here contemplating interdimensional relationships by vibrational emanations through the rhythm of mortal time and transcendental time caused by effluence (within) and influence (without) .  Not 'hokey' transcendental Time.  I'm talking Supra-consciousness and hyper space.  The unseen, non-material.  Pondering the effects of these interactions, either violently colliding or working in harmony,  I was thinking how they continually emenate through the circular planes of Time, Space....more

What Makes a “Good” Parent?

What makes a good parent? In one word?  Humility.  In two words?  A sense of humour and humility. Think about it for a minute . Lately, I have spent more time with my now 5 grandchildren, all age 2 and under. I am struck with the fact that most adults are not natural baby whisperers and our society really does not spend time preparing these hapless adults to parent....more

The Inner Self

Who are you? Who am I? Do the selfies I have taken over the past 5 years tell you anything about me? What's more important is that the more we conform to our virtual identities, the more we tend to forget the real us.Every magazine I read recently is focusing on the subject of navigating your way through a hectic life of emotional and mental imbalances. I think we need to start exploring the layers of ourselves that haven't been unravelled yet, and start discovering the mysteries that experiences, moments, memories and even our subconscious can teach us....more

Taking Your First Steps

Take that first step in living your dream. It's always that first step that's the scariest. Not knowing what will happen and where it will take you may keep you from moving at all. But getting all that you deserve at the end is worth the anxiety of not knowing. How much will it take to venture forward? You are stronger than you believe yourself to be. Have faith that all you desire is just around the corner waiting for you. No one knows better than you what you want out of life....more
