Divine Feminine

“When the divine feminine, the goddess, is no longer revered, social and psychic structures become overmechanized, overpoliticized, overmilitarized. “Thinking, judgment, and rationality become the ruling factors.

Discovering Creation

Discovering Creation

The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek therefore, not to find out Who You Are, but seek to determine Who You Want to Be —Neal Donald...

Spiraling Perspective

“The past is not static, or ever truly complete; as we age we see from new positions, shifting angles. A therapist friend of mine likes to use the metaphor of the kind of spiral stair that winds up inside a lighthouse. As one moves up that stair, the core at the center doesn’t change, but one continually sees it from another vantage point; if the past is a core of who we are, then our...

Another word on fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers,and…….

I remember several years ago when I walked into the kitchen and saw my father for the first time. Of course, it wasn’t literally the first time I’d seen him-I’d seen him thousands ofttimes before-but this was the first time I’d really seen him.

When I am among the trees

When I am among the trees, especially the willows and the honey locust, equally the beech, the oaks and the pines, they give off such hints of gladness. I would almost say that they save me, and daily. I am so distant from the hope of myself, in which I have goodness, and discernment, and never hurry through the world but walk slowly, and bow often. Around me the trees stir in their leaves and...

A Good Place…

There is a magical moment when we recognize that the point is not to search outside ourselves. The more we suffer, the clearer it becomes: Everything we are in search of will disappoint us. There are no perfect beings, no perfect jobs, no perfect apartments. And thus the search always ends at the same place, and the name of this place is disappointment. A good place.
