Overturning stubborn belief systems since 1956

“Love is the natural condition of all experience before thought divides it into a multiplicity of objects, selves and others.”—Rupert Spira Something really weird is happening in my life. I’m not traveling much or working on a specific project. In fact, when friends ask, “So what have you been up to?” I have no good, […]

Living in a wonderland

“The only treasure we really have is this moment right now.”—Pico Iyer Can you believe it? Look at that sky. It’s a refrain I seem to repeat to my partner nearly every morning. Before we light the incense and meditate, we often step outside just to see what’s going on, to see what new wonder […]

Peace, music and other merriment I may have missed

“The unknown is where the most exciting part of life happens.”—adrienne maree brown Joyous 2o22, my friends! One of the bajillion things I loved about spending last summer in Mexico was the singing. Guys crowded together in trucks, sang joyously together as they headed off to work. I was reminded of this yesterday because a […]

Put down the duckie

“Until you know yourself to be essentially whole, and not the wounded and broken one who needs to be fixed, the true solution to your personal suffering will remain out of reach.”–Gail Brenner So I was watching a documentary about Sesame Street. In one of the songs, Ernie was futilely attempting to learn to play […]

Infinite abundance and why it has nothing to do with money

“Our inner worlds are the greatest lever for systems change.”—Mina Lee I like to pay attention to shifts in consciousness, even when they’re small, especially when they’re overlooked. Actor Michael Sheen (Good Omens, the Queen, the Prodigal Son) recently declared himself a “not-for-profit.” In an act of spontaneous generosity, he decided to donate all future […]

Why I’m the luckiest person on the planet, Episode 87

“Come alive with your life. This is the time. We are the people.”–Jean Houston Long time readers may remember that I wrote a blog series with the above title. In these effusive, unrestrained episodes I detailed why I feel so incredibly blessed. Three years ago, I stopped using that particular title. It didn’t seem quite […]

You’ve got to be kidding me….

“We are free to take note of the giant miracle we’re living in as often as we want. The more we do so, the closer we weave the fabric of an enchantment that is our most precious inheritance.”—Rosie Bell When Greek geographer Eratosthenes scientifically proved that the earth is round, not flat, as it appears, […]

Imagining a new world

“Joy is to fun what the deep sea is to a puddle.  It’s a feeling inside that can hardly be contained.”–Terry Pratchett In response to a comment on my last blog post, I stated that I have a crush on all of humanity. And I meant it.  We humans are utterly fascinating creatures, star dust […]

Big trees, full heart, ginormous love

“The function of art is to imagine what’s possible.”—bell hooks So I’ve got a challenge for you. But before that, I want to issue a fat sloppy thanks to all of you that have sent notes, kind words and emails wondering where I’ve been.  My last post was six weeks or so ago. That’s a […]

Make it nice in there

“Self and world, inner and outer, are not entirely separate, and the question of what the future will be intimately involves ourselves.”—Charles Eisenstein I have a friend who is obsessed with home makeover shows. Switching up décor, lighting, even floor plans can make a big difference in a living space. There’s even a profession now […]
