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 had to learn to remember. The path to remembering, or putting myself back together again, was a […]

On purpose: musings about why we are here

On purpose: musings about why we are here


Dearest readers, You may feel a vague or a more intense urging that there is a specific reason for which you came to live on Earth at this particular time. Many of us want to know: why am I here, and what is my specific purpose? I think about this a lot. There are so […]

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 […]
