The Most Difficult Thing to Ever See is Yourself

Hypocrite

“Clean up your side of the street.” – AA

“You hypocrite!  First take the blank out of your own eye so that you can see clearly, and then you can help remove your brother’s spec in his eye” – Jesus

It’s funny how clearly I can see other people’s problems while avoiding my own.  This is universal.  In the grand landscape of life, the most difficult thing to see is yourself.  I know now when I am…

Suffering is NOT a Rite of Passage - You Don’t Have to Suffer

Surrender

Feeling lost is a common hindrance among people.  Feeling lost and harboring a terrible void that seems unfillable is what it often feels like to be human, yet we keep wandering and doing everything we can to divert ourselves from that emptiness.  I know it all too well.  There are temporary oases from this great human dilemma.  Religion, money, relationships, having children – all of these…

Why Giving Is Receiving - You’ve Heard This, but What is the Truth Behind It?

Giving is Receiving

When we think of giving as receiving, many of us think this means that because it feels so good to give, that we are getting something out of it, or we think of karma and how we are setting the wheel in motion.  Both of these things are true, but there is even something greater in the act of giving when you offer your money, your time, your kindness, a gift or charity to another human being, and…

Why I LOVE ‘Finding Nemo’ (“Stay Awake,” “Keep Swimming” and “Let GO!”)

Finding Nemo

The Hero’s Journey is the template formula of most movies, especially ones where you find Heroes, but ‘Finding Nemo’ has a special quality to it so prolific that I wonder why it hasn’t been examined in depth for its true meaning.  I’ve looked online to no avail.  Not even Pixar gives up its secrets of the movie.  If you’re on the path of the Hero’s Journey, you may have caught these spiritual…

Do You Believe in Magic?

Magic

About four years ago I went into a 30 day treatment program near my hometown, which did me absolutely no good for keeping me sober, but what it did provide was an opportunity for laughter and play – something I hadn’t experienced in several years.  I went in there terribly depressed, you see, and left the day a rainbow appeared across the land in the west.  Perhaps it was my sign to go west…

I Am Awake. Are You Awake, or In the Common Dream State?

I was reading something the other day about how when water encounters a rock along its path, it naturally and gracefully moves around the rock without stopping to observe, or making any kind of judgment about the rock.

When life is challenging and I when feel overwhelmed, it tends to shadow my inner spark.  I was looking around yesterday and it felt as if a veil of boredom and dread overcame me.

Embracing the Things We Don’t Like Instead of Rejecting Them Will Liberate Humanity

We don’t shun the darkness each evening when the earth rotates and the sun shines on the opposite side of the world.

Recognizing Stressful Sitations as a Process for Inner Awareness

WOW it’s been a week!  Too much going on, yet no way to slow it down.  I don’t know what planets are aligned where or if Mercury is in retro-freaking-grade, or if Gemini is being eclipsed by whatever, but I feel like a frigging tennis ball.
