The New Age and Positive Bias

The New Age and Positive Bias


Hello dearest readers! As we shift out of the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius, there is a definite need to change our mindset from one of a negative bias, in which reality and human nature are defined by fear, survival of the physical body, separation from self and the spiritual realms as […]

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 […]

Global softening & the feminization of America


Dear readers, You may be wondering how America is becoming more nurturing and compassionate all while having just elected an authoritarian pseudo populist right-wing president in Donald Trump. While the intention of this post is to discuss a global shift in consciousness towards balance and a more feminine and cooperative view of life and society, […]

Intuition and Nutrition


  Dear readers, Like you, I am concerned about health and well-being. I am a single mom, and I want my son to live a long, healthy, and happy life. I am sure you want the same for your self, your spouse, your children. Every day, I worry that my son eats too much bread, […]

America is a welfare state…for rich people!


Hello readers, When I lived in France, I never felt poor, even though I never earned very much money. I felt like my life was focused on creativity, on being an artist, then a parent,on living the life I wanted to live. I had to live very frugally in order to accomplish this, and I owned […]

Looking inward and getting away from fear


Hello readers, Humans are very emotional creatures. We like to think of ourselves as primarily rational beings, but for most of us, our emotions run the show – whether it be conscious or below the surface of our awareness. In fact, the most logical people who stubbornly assert that they live only by the facts […]

The Great Divide: Growing Inequality in America


Hello readers, I don’t know about you, but it really bothers me that corporations and bankers run America. That such a small group of people is able to milk our collective resources, human and natural and greedily and without consequence take whatever they want…because they can. Ordinary people are constantly taxed and support the extravagant […]

Paying guesses (a poem)


A crooked lady lived in a crooked house in a crooked land among those hills lay towns where good money was paid for the graces, ticking days, living flesh of inmates in this land, the dead were sold for profit and the souls of the poor and neglected did not matter disposable crooked almost zombies […]

How responsible are we for being overweight?


Hello readers, Working in a public library, I am surrounded by books, people, and the exchange of information all day.  I am interested in many subjects, but healthy living, a balanced lifestyle, spirituality and philosophy are among the primary themes of my quest for living in balance with nature. As I read and watch documentaries […]

The Wisdom of Your Body


Hello readers, I am a fan of Deepak Chopra’s writings, and I have been trying to finish reading his book, “What Are You Hungry For?” for some time… On page 230, I found this wonderful passage that I wanted to share with you: “Each of us possesses an inner wisdom that isn’t reflected in our […]

Creating Balance: Nature and Culture


Hello readers, It hit me one day, many years ago on one of countless long aimless and solitary walks through Paris that all of matter is intelligent.  Not just matter, but everything that exists: gases, flames, liquids, the invisible as well as the solid.  Everything is as fluxful, comedic, and intentional as the ancient primitives […]

Grounded!


Hello readers, You’re grounded!  That could be a punishing sentence, or a compliment.  I don’t recall every being grounded as a child – in either sense of the word.  Sometimes I feel I am drawn to spiritual realms because I don’t feel quite at home in the meat of life and human interactions here on […]

Balancing the masculine and feminine


My motivation for starting this blog is my observation that people around me seem to be seeking happiness, or a sense of purpose for their lives in the wrong places.  Being human involves a lot a suffering, and  suffering is necessary for growth.  Growth means maturity – taking responsibility for who we are as a […]
