Trust, freedom, and power: the price of conditional love

Trust, freedom, and power: the price of conditional love


  Dearest readers, I’ve been musing about belonging and freedom. Naturally, we should be easily able to be part of a family or group and also maintain our individuality. At least it seems simple on the surface. Thousands of years of conditional love have robbed us of our spontaneity, our ability to love self and […]

Monster: How Mass Shootings Can Teach Us How to Heal Ourselves, Our Societies


Dearest readers, There are many reasons why violence is so prevalent in the United States and around the planet today. Violence is an outward projection of our individual inner states of being as well as an accurate portrait of our collective state and how we use our consciousness to create the realities in which we […]

Heart over Mind: from control to vulnerability

Heart over Mind: from control to vulnerability


Dearest readers, Truth and living with integrity are important to me. So are slowing down, enjoying the moment. I’m not very competitive. But I like to achieve and manifest my visions in the physical world. Finding and creating balance between our masculine side which is all about doing, achieving, conquering, creating order, and softening to […]

How to make your neighborhood a safe, happy place

How to make your neighborhood a safe, happy place


Dearest readers, I am a member of a neighborhood social network called NextDoor. It is a wonderful site, connecting people in contiguous communities, allowing people to exchange thoughts, practical information, make friends, and to help one another in various ways. However, the issue of crime and neighborhood safety is one which keeps recurring, and I […]

The Light Quotient and self-healing

Close to 2,000 people take part in the “I Meditate” Africa Month Program in Richmond, South Africa, on May 27, 2017. “I Meditate” is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization devoted to teaching meditation as part of self discipline and peace building, especially in prisons, schools, educational and social institutions, and in highly stressful environments. The town […]

The end of fake freedom

The end of fake freedom


  Dearest readers, In this post, I will attempt to explain how we can move from an illusion of freedom which is still our collective accepted reality, to living as truly free, powerful, and creative beings. This shift requires moving out of duality and into unity – out of the head and into the heart. […]

Delighted! Signs the collective is moving to service to others ethic


  Dearest readers, I am always looking out for clues and definite signs that our shared reality is shifting from a service-to-self philosophy based on greed, separation, and lack to one that is expansive, holistic, conceptual, compassionate, and generous.  In this nascent reality that we are all evolving into and building together, all people, animals, […]

Rediscovering innocence

Rediscovering innocence


Dearest readers, An innocent heart is the most powerful state of being. We look with delight into the eyes of a baby, a puppy, a kitten. The light flowing through the eyes of innocence is soft yet bright. Full of wonder, joy, simplicity. There are no shadows, no fear, no intentions other than to enjoy […]

From puppets to people: remembering our humanity


  Dearest readers, While most broadcast “news” is designed to trigger fear, to divide people against each other, to keep us obedient and passive, and to conceal the truth, occasionally nuggets of truthful information do slip through the control agenda. I am persuaded that it is useless and even counter-productive to fight “against” the system. […]

I can have the whole box of chocolates: beyond survival to unity consciousness


Dearest readers, This weekend I am attending a Power Living conference led by healer and spiritual teacher, Patrick San Francesco, from Bangalore, India. Patrick founded the Samarpan Foundation in 2006. According to his web-site, lightmovement.org, Samarpan means surrendering your identity to the universe. The non-profit promotes the values of love, peace, kindness, and happiness by […]

Worlds Apart

Worlds Apart


Hello dear readers, I have been offline for a while. My son just turned 18 and had his first day of classes at the University of Helsinki in Finland today. It has and continues to be a great adventure for both of us! I just returned to the United States after spending nearly two weeks […]

Racism, animal abuse, child abuse, drug abuse: the final gasps of a victim/savior paradigm

Racism, animal abuse, child abuse, drug abuse: the final gasps of a victim/savior paradigm


Dearest readers, My experiences growing up in a highly co-dependent, enmeshed family system where emotional abuse was a normal way of being led me on a path where I did not know how to love myself anymore. I had to learn to remember. The path to remembering, or putting myself back together again, was a […]

Poor me: race, cognitive dissonance, and personal responsibility for all


Dearest readers, Being human is impossibly difficult. It is a challenge we take on voluntarily. At least that is what I believe, and that belief empowers me and gives me hope for all of us. It seems crazy to think that I could have chosen the family I was born into and the circumstances of […]

The power of our emotions


Dearest readers, This is a quote from a Magenta Pixie video that I jotted down because it impressed me so much: “It is the emotion behind intent that produces manifestation.” Human beings are highly emotional beings. The chaos we observe in the world has been created in order to manipulate our emotional bodies and to […]

People, power and the end of worship


s  Dearest readers, When I first began this blog, it was the intuition that reality is not at all what it appears to be which motivated my desire to explore human consciousness and the nature of reality. As it turns out, my explorations of reality have brought me on an ever more inward spiral through […]

It would be an honor: Donald Trump, Kim Jong-Un, and the Higher Self


  Dearest readers, I rarely watch TV these days, but I happened to be sitting in a Moe’s Southwest Grill restaurant, whose screens featured CNN broadcasts. While I couldn’t hear the sound track, headlines paraded across the screens with the words: It would be an “honor”. The word honor was surrounded by ironic parentheses, it […]

Self-love, self-empowerment, and charity


Dearest readers, We all know in our minds that it is good to be kind to others. It is good to treat others as we wish to be treated. These are moral concepts that we have been taught since we were little. Share your toys. Don’t be selfish. Yet at the same time, as we […]

Humanity in transition: visions of our future


Dearest readers, My faith in humanity is very strong, even though I am a very solitary person by nature. I feel that humanity has deviated from its natural state.  Some say that we collectively chose to experience a state of forgetfulness, victimhood, or to be humbled through suffering because it was an experience we all […]

Waking up in the physical body

Waking up in the physical body


Dearest readers, I have been wondering how the ascension process pertains to the feminine and to our choice to incarnate on Earth in a physical body. People who publish articles and videos on-line about the ascension process explain that Gaia or our home planet Earth has consciously decided to “ascend”. This means that the planet […]

Creating realities that support joy


Dearest readers, I was just thinking about how we, as human parents, try to extend childhood for our kids. It wasn’t always like this, and in many places it still isn’t. Children work and are even slaves in many places around the world today. But the point I would like to make is this: the […]
