Out of Control

When one can see no future, all one can do is the next right thing. Frozen 2 I find this quote fascinating. On the physical level, when standing in the dark with no path in sight, what is left is to take the step, the leap of faith that feels accurate, either that, or crumple …

The Gift of My Heart

These times are filled with anxiety. Many seem to be waiting for the next shoe to drop, and while waiting for something, it usually appears. People are depressed and some are so taxed they are exiting this realm in response. If you want to learn to navigate these ever more challenging days, I am offering …

Awakening

I love Jim Carrey. I think my favorite movie, and this is a hard choice, is The Truman Show. It could be that I just finished watching it again but it feels like it is more than that. When I look at the movie as an analogy for my life here on playground Earth it …

The Great Reboot

If you are fortunate to not be packed up and ready to evacuate you probably haven’t had to decide what you would take and what you would leave behind. I’ve wandered around the house today wondering what I would leave to the fates, what dear treasures I would tuck into my bag as I walked …

You are the Portal

Jackson County is on alert to evacuate. Medford is a town of 82,000 and there are lots of smaller surrounding towns as well. My heart goes out to all my friends and family in the path of the Glendover fire. It is the same not too far from home. Clackamas County is on alert — …

Surrender

What are your thoughts on death? Do you believe you aren’t afraid of death? It’s common to hear people say they aren’t, but are they really immune? Are they truly okay with taking their last breath, with leaving everyone they love behind? Are you? We are living through demanding times. People are stressed beyond their …

Here, Here!

Just when you think it’s safe to get back in the water! What a life this is, a universe intent on stripping away every last flake of ego, ego that can not be seen until it is in the process of being stripped and even then it’s so slippery, like a slinky slipping around a …

Resign

What happens if we resign from the argument? If we do, we would have to face the fear that the world will go to hell. Doing so, we would come face-to-face with the reality of what we fear. We would find out whether our exhausting vigilance is required to keep the world on track. For …

No Escape

There is no escape. That is not the purpose of playground earth. We can destroy this planet and still not escape. That idea is at the core of climate shift — a desire to end it all, to watch it burn. Whatever tack we take, whatever way we attempt to destroy ourselves, consciousness will always …

Priceless

Anything truly is possible. The world as you know it can shift in an instant. The shift is activated by love. This uni-verse, the one rhyme and rhythm, is fueled by love. … and yet, humans continue repeating patterns they set into motion: countries imploding, bodies aging, illnesses becoming more chronic, relationships failing, happiness and …

Remember

We are conflicted beings, part heart and a lot of mind that is easily twisted. We are a work in progress that is without end. It seems we are human or becoming more so. Human meaning of humanity, kindness and compassion. We are not attending college but a kindergarten, a playground for consciousness to awaken …

Today I Forgave a Tree

Today I forgave a tree. I know that sounds silly, but for me it was a bit of grace.   Back in January as I was coming up the steep hill out of the woods where I walk my heart went into v-tach, one of the worst episodes I experienced throughout my 11 months of …

True Balance

A friend wrote that the pro-trump and the ant-trump camps are two sides of one coin. I value her posts so took a look.   It seems, at least here in this form body, that I can speak up for love which appears to many to be anti-trump since he is anti-love — the epitome …

Sync or Sim

Is it sync or sim? Are we living in a time of increasing synchronicities, noticing more and more simultaneity each day, or have we actually been living in a simulation all along? Do you have control over anything, even your own thoughts? Thoughts come and go — they appear on their own and leave when …

It’s About Your Soul

“The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who in time of moral crisis preserve their neutrality.” Dante This is not about politics. This is not about your right to your beliefs. This is not about different strokes for different folks. This is not even about seeing the world through contrasting lenses. We are …
