The other day I saw a social media post from a spiritual leader that seriously hooked me and within seconds I was completely torqued! Totally pissed me off! Huge judgments running through my mind, and it sat so heavily on me I had to send an email to friend and rant for a couple paragraphs [...]

Living Life Unrehearsed

When I hear the word “transition” the first thing that comes to mind are all the different ways to describe what it is. Here are just a few: change, passage from one state or place to another, transformation, segue, an evolutionary shift, conversion and so on. I think my favorite is “metamorphosis” because it typically [...]

The Never-Ending Story

Every year ministers, pastors, priests and the like spend time working on a talk for Easter Sunday, which seems like it wouldn’t be a big deal, right? I mean the story is already written, what’s to think about? Well for me, there is plenty to think about. Throughout my life Easter has evolved from the [...]

Paradoxes of Peace: Individual and Community

2017-03-01T16:47:49+00:00 Categories: Community, Consciousness, Evolution, Interconnected, Paradox, Transformation|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Peace is one of those seemingly intangible, shape-shifting things in life, such as love, that molds our lives so intensely. It’s not necessarily something I can hold in my hand or perhaps physically give to you, and there are no words to adequately define the experience or even give a “correct” definition. Yet it is the [...]

And It Was Good

Far back into the unknowable past, even before the beginning, stretching out into the incomprehensible, unfathomable depths, dark and void of infinite eternity behind and beyond all history, the Christpower was alive. This was the living, pulsing, generating, creating, smoldering, exploding, fusing, multiplying, emerging, heating and cooling power of life itself: Christpower. And it was [...]

There Are Many “Onenesses”

2017-03-01T16:47:49+00:00 Categories: Consciousness, Evolution, God, Interconnected, Self Reflection|

Everywhere I look there are TV shows, articles, pictures, poems, reflections and pithy aphorisms about "oneness." If I didn't know better I would think we were hungry, or even starving, to know what "oneness" is, how to experience, capture it and celebrate it. We want everyone to know this "oneness" because I think we all [...]

I Want to Add to the Beauty

2013-04-25T15:13:37+00:00 Categories: Consciousness, Evolution, Greater Reality, Shadow Work|Tags: , , , |

Yesterday a friend said to me, “Your scars won’t matter as he falls in love with the beauty that you are.” It took me by surprise, because it was a laser sharp message that instantaneously spoke to so much more than I could have ever imagined. It forced me to make peace with what I [...]

Eternity in a Snowflake

“To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.” -William Blake Whenever there has been a snowstorm I love to awaken early and sit quietly looking out the window at a world of white that [...]

A Mythical Christmas: The Gifts of the Magi

Some of my favorite characters from the Christmas story are the wise men. Even though I know the stories aren’t historically true, I love that each character represents a part of me. As I have mentioned in the previous two articles, the narratives we have for the birth of Jesus are found in two of [...]

A Mythical Christmas: Let There Be Light

The other day I was talking with a friend who lives in Germany. It was already nightfall for her and she was sharing with me the beauty of their first snowfall this season. She described the scene outside her window with such clarity, that I couldn't help but close my eyes and imagine it for [...]

Christmas holds a special place in my heart, not because of any religion or theological beliefs, but mostly because it was my dad’s favorite holiday and because it’s a time of year for many family traditions and rituals to be played out. Every year we know the traditional frustration of hanging lights on the house [...]

The last time I wrote anything political was… Oh, I remember, NEVER. The world of politics is not something I have ever felt comfortable with probably because I get overwhelmed with ALL the information, statistics, rhetoric, facts, ideologies, opinions and basic filibustering that goes on. Not to mention the routine candidate bashing that ensues, regardless [...]

What I want to talk about is that things are always perfect and it can’t get any better, life is wonderful! I love to talk about things being magnificent and sublime. I thoroughly enjoy those moments, sitting with others, basking in the glory of all that is good, true and beautiful. When I do, I [...]

Between Mysticism and Madness

2017-03-01T16:48:02+00:00 Categories: Beginnings, Consciousness, Evolution, Featured, Interconnected, Transformation|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

For a couple years I have had this phrase, “Between mysticism and madness I find myself.” When something stays with me this long I know it is a thread to follow, so consider this fair warning for the beginning of my “following.” […]

The Great Web of Life

2017-03-01T16:48:03+00:00 Categories: Consciousness, Evolution, Featured, God, Integral|Tags: , , , |

As human beings continue to evolve, so do our conceptions of God. In fact, I would go so far as to say that as human beings evolve, God evolves right along with me, and with every step I take toward deeper consciousness and compassion action, I believe God takes another step toward its own perfection [...]
