We are nature

Nature brings us back to self. Or perhaps by being in nature we are reminded that we are nature. It is so easy for us to slip into the separate perspective…I…human..am separate from you..nature. I have dominion. I am smarter, better, faster… HAH!! It only takes a storm or earthquake for us to be humbled as to who exactly has … Read More

Finding home

There is something about cold cold mornings…where the air is snap crisp, and each breath is felt. Granted, where I live we do not know real cold..6 C (42 F) to 24 C (75 F) days..and those 6 C mornings are rare. On these cold mornings you know that the horizon will be cloudless, as will the day. This is … Read More

At first I thought there was not going to be a photo this morning. And then, this moment, when the sun came through a pocket in the clouds.

A mechanistic or connected Universe?

Two seagulls and a lone runner frame this beautiful sunrise. I have felt as if everything I have been working on has been stuck for about 6 weeks. Interestingly, in my inner work around the project that consumes most of my days, I hold the image of two birds…white doves…or perhaps seagulls.. as a symbol of my project. When I … Read More

Embrace the mystery

A wonderful teacher advised me…embrace the mystery. This life of ours is a mystery. We try to order it…to have it be shaped in our image. Wisdom teaches us that this is a fools errand. It was never ours to shape. Rather the path is one of aligning…deep atunement to the essential who of us…the threads of our life…and what … Read More

The path of integrity

There is a problem. Its big. One of those keep you up at night problems. There are some easy solutions, but you know that to take these will violate a deep agreement you have made with yourself. What to do? What to do? In the past you took the easy way. But the price has become to high. This is … Read More
