Cat Mastery: Felines teach detachment, surrender, trust, the importance of freedom

Cat Mastery: Felines teach detachment, surrender, trust, the importance of freedom


Dearest readers, When the student is ready, the cat will appear. In my case, on October 1, 2019, a 4 month old male kitten, Titi Snowth, showed up on my patio, hungry. I took pity and started feeding him once a day, promising myself I wouldn’t get too invested. I don’t usually feed wild animals. […]

How Comfortable is Your Self-Doubt?

How Comfortable is Your Self-Doubt?


Dearest readers, Even the most confident (in appearance) person on the planet has been trained to doubt their own creative abilities. Doubt is the emotion that, above all others, prevents the evolution of humanity and even world peace. Without supreme trust in our own ability to create the kind of world we want to live […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Survival or success?


Dear readers, Some of you may know, and some may not yet have noticed, but today we are living in a very special time of great change and great opportunities for self-mastery. Until very recently, survival was the best we could muster, and only few were either handed an artificial form of success based on […]

painted word…a poem


an ache in my heart erases the glimmer of trust which once lit my eyes peeling the perspective of each day one an invitation two a threat three a choice a thoughtful reordering of the words that organize my head and so I encounter humanity a checkerboard of sharply contrasted thinking so many actions without […]

Letting go…how to be in the flow of life as a parent


Hello readers, You may have noticed that self-love is one of my most frequently used tags on this blog.  While everything in our societies is conspiring for us to neglect and hate ourselves, all while  making us believe we are extremely important, self-love is the most important goal in achieving awareness of the true unity […]

Language, Intimacy, and Family: How Family Is a Hub of Linguistic Creativity


Hello readers and fellow lovers of writing and language, I was just musing today about how family just might be the place where creative invention in language is most bountiful, secret, and loving.  Living in a special unit, a community separate from the world in some senses, a family group must often modify the common […]
