On Forgiveness

  Borrow the Beloved’s eyes. Look through them and you’ll see the Beloved’s face everywhere. No tiredness, no jaded boredom. “I shall be your eye and your hand and your loving.” Let that happen, and things you have hated will become helpers. A certain preacher always prays long and with enthusiasm for thieves and muggers that attack people on the … Read More

Beginning of the beginning

Well I made it. It was never really in doubt…but here I am, now in the dawn of my 5th decade. What a journey these last few months have been. On Tuesday, August 31st, 2010, I did finally feel like this was the beginning of the beginning. A new day, a new way of being, a new life. I had … Read More

Becoming a Jedi Knight

Following the threads of the last few blogs, in the search to understand and bring to life my feminine, I intuitively picked up one of my reference books, “Goddesses in Everywoman” by Jean Shinoda Bolen. First published in 1984, this book speaks of the deep archetypal patterns found in women. I am wondering where the similar book is for men? … Read More

In my vulnerability I become invulnerable

In my vulnerability I become invulnerable… These words are from A Course in Miracles, and they have been a guiding light for how I show up in the world, and in this blog. When I have nothing to hide…no dark places…no deep shame…no place I do not want you to see, or anyone else…when I am completely vulnerable, I am … Read More

Three wishes

Imagine that we can have three wishes granted, on the one condition that they cannot benefit you directly. They have to be wished on behalf of someone else. What would you wish for? I sat with this question for quite some time. The answer could have been lazy. I wish for my daughter to have a fabulous and successful career … Read More

What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

  Who made the world? Who made the swan, and the black bear? Who made the grasshopper? This grasshopper, I mean— the one who has flung herself out of the grass, the one who is eating sugar out of my hand, who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down— who is gazing around with her … Read More

Game Change

Back in 1986 I attended a personal development workshop called Money and You. The facilitator was Robert Kiyosaki. (Author of the Rich Dad Poor Dad series). The driving impulse to attend was a desire to make more money. I suspect I also wanted to understand the money system, as curiosity has been one of my main values. The experience was … Read More

Finding the Feminine

My mother, the wonderful spiritual astrologer, Ashtara, is usually the person I call when the Universe seems to be heckling my spirit. Friday last week I woke feeling very trapped. For the last 16 years I have allowed myself to fall down the very icky rabbit hole of debt. In the last 4 years I have been cleaning up my … Read More

Crisis? What crisis?

As a student of history (and I mean a home grown student, not a graduate of any school of history), it occurs to me that there have been many times in the history of Universe, and specifically in the history of human kind in Universe, when we have been faced with unprecedented crises that portended the end of life as … Read More

Do we live in a sufficient Universe?

What if there is more than enough for everyone? And you not only believed it, you lived it? In an earlier article I talked about our societal enmeshment in the scarcity principle. We are so caught up in the model of scarcity without even knowing that we are caught. Fear of our own security and protection, and of having ‘enough’ … Read More
