THE ART OF LETTING GO

We talk a lot about healing. Let go and let God. Forgive and forget. Embrace our shadows. Live in love. Yadda yadda!!! But. How many of us genuinely consider what we’re letting go of? How often do we have epiphanies that show us how much easier it is to just let go and love. Let […]

JACOB BOEHME AND THE VIRGIN SOPHIA

“Dear Soul! Here sincerity is required: but sincere and determined will must prosecute this or else it will not be achieved. For, if the Soul wants to gain Christ’s knightly crown from the Virgin Sophia, she (i.e. the Soul) must woo it from her (i.e. the Virgin Sophia) with great Love-desire. She must beg for […]

EPIGENETICS & GENERATIONAL CURSES

LICK YOUR PUPS: HOW NURTURE AFFECTS NATURE So there’s this wonderful research by Dr. Moshe Szyf and Dr. Michael Meaney that came out of the McGill University a couple of decades ago. They’d noticed that some rat mothers licked their pups after being handled by members of the team while others sort of ignored the […]

THE PATTERN OF RELIGION

Probably the most “unchristian” thing I have ever said is that we aren’t here to argue down others with our religious rightness and convert them to our way of thinking.

WHY WE LIKE PRETTY LIES

I recently had a conversation with my oldest daughter’s Mother that rocked me to my core. She possesses a sort of brutal honesty I’ve come to appreciate and despise all in the same breath. While she always admonishes with love and wants me to prepare for whatever storms may come I’m not always prepared to […]

CALM COMES FROM WITHIN

Staying calm amidst the turmoil of our daily lives is almost a sort of super power. We’ve all came across those people who possess the ability to stay calm no matter what is happening in their lives. It’s a very beautiful quality to have. Fortunately, it’s also one that any of us can develop with […]

START BY BELIEVING IN YOURSELF

JUST BELIEVE It’s obvious to anyone who reads my blog that I have a firm belief in mysticism. I spend countless hours pounding keys talking about the grace afforded to me that allows me to be here. I went from a convict taking from others to a working class cog in the machine. I’ve decided […]
