“Things that are impossible are everyday experiences when you live in advanced states of mind, when you live in a world of constant miraculous awareness.—Rama When I was a kid, I collected napkins.

The new, magical way of existing in the world

“Let me trust that all of my own needs are always met in amazing ways and it is safe to give freely as my heart guides me.”—Tosha Silver Unlike most of the world, I’m in no hurry to return to “normal.” “Normal,” as prescribed by the existing culture, doesn’t always serve our best interests. “Normal” […]

Sit. Feast on your life.

“If we seek beauty, it will spill into our lives.”—Mary Pipher So the title of this post “Sit. Feast on your life” came, not from a self-help book, but from my daughter Taz’s bedroom wall.

My vision board for the planet

“If we don’t use this time for change, we will have missed an insane opportunity.”–Noah Elias This may come as a surprise to some of my readers, but I’ve never been big on vision boards.
