Art and healing the collective body: reconfiguring controversial public art


Dearest readers, A friend and very talented and compassionate fellow writer recently shared with me the fascinating and horrifying true story of her ancestor, Massachusetts Puritan Hannah Duston (1657-1736). Hannah Duston has been commemorated and was at one time celebrated for her brutal and vengeful acts of scalping and murdering in their sleep 10 Native […]

Ode to COVID: Revenge of the Introverts (a poem)

Ode to COVID: Revenge of the Introverts (a poem)


Latterday patriarchs melting members saw their masculinity attacked Obelisks in erectile dysfunction The all-seeing eye viewing from atop its pyramid of superiority their numbers drawn, their times counted For out of balance the balancing sheet revealed Slithering from the depths of a navel impaled the spiked punch came from a long-planned itinerary of doom Punching […]

Creativity in the time of COVID-19: Why be creative only in times of crisis?

Creativity in the time of COVID-19: Why be creative only in times of crisis?


Dearest readers, I celebrated (in my own way) my 53rd birthday this April 4th. 4/4/2020 is said to be the day of perfect balance in the year of perfect balance. Although the world seems chaotic these days, we are clearly shifting in the physical or most dense areas of life on Earth to a new […]

Antiviral: Choosing what we spread

Antiviral: Choosing what we spread


Hello dearest readers, Currently, the world seems to be swept by an intentionally propagated fear of the corona virus. As most of you already probably know, the main purpose of global media is to spread fear and to keep humanity in a lower vibrational frequency so that the collective can be easily kept under control. […]

Women and self-love

Women and self-love


Dearest readers, Why is it so easy to love a dog, a cat, a flower, even a dress, a tree but so hard to love yourself? Why are humans so hard to love? Women always talk about looking for love, but love is not something that exists outside of self. The nature of reality is […]

Remedies for loneliness: the importance of sharing and intimacy

Remedies for loneliness: the importance of sharing and intimacy


Dearest readers, An unforeseen and preventable tragedy recently occurred in my work place. One of my younger coworkers, M. (aged 27) took his own life during the holiday break. He was a quiet young man. Respectful, thoughtful, intelligent. A model employee who was always on time and who played by the rules. His college major […]

Ascension, Unity, and Sexuality: the blurring of gender and the global shift to a higher level of consciousness

Ascension, Unity, and Sexuality: the blurring of gender and the global shift to a higher level of consciousness


Dearest readers, It is impossible to ignore the vast changes in human sexual identity over the last several years. You might say that human sexuality has always been extremely diverse as well as heavily regulated by culture. Today, it is simply the lifting of social and moral restrictions that has allowed what has always existed […]

The Comforts and Discomforts of Living Inside and Outside of the Box

The Comforts and Discomforts of Living Inside and Outside of the Box


Dearest readers, I recently finished reading an intriguing and thought provoking novel by Celeste Ng, called Little Fires Everywhere. Throughout the story, the author contrasts the life choices of two families. One is a single mother Mia, and her teen-aged daughter, Pearl, who live a nomadic and minimalist lifestyle. The mother is an artist, and […]

The Wounded Mother and bringing the truth to light: some thoughts for her and for her children

The Wounded Mother and bringing the truth to light: some thoughts for her and for her children


Dearest readers, Today is Mother’s Day in the United States. My mother has refused to speak to me for many years. The last time we exchanged words, she screamed at me over the phone, refusing to go to her own mother’s funeral. That was in April of 2007. I could not find a commercial Mother’s […]

On Money and Freedom

On Money and Freedom


Dearest readers, Many people say that money is but a form of energy. That everything is energy. Yet in our current paradigm, money seems to rule our lives and holds for many the energy of fear. Fear of not having enough, fear of not being able to live out our true talents, desires, dreams. Money […]

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 […]

2018: Integrating the shadow for the collective

2018: Integrating the shadow for the collective


Dearest readers, 2018 is a year where the presence of the shadow in society will be unavoidable. Chaos, violence, crime, people being offended, the eruption of sex scandals, political intrigues, and abuses against people, animals, and the planet will explode exponentially. These eruptions which are already quite visible are increasing so that humanity can integrate […]

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, […]

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. […]

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for: the new age of personal responsibility

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for: the new age of personal responsibility


Dearest readers, Life is but a dream. My focus in the new paradigm, as we collectively move into a higher level of consciousness, is to create a dream, that is a life, that I enjoy. No one is coming to save us. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We came, we incarnated, to […]

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 […]
