“You need to be as mad as a hatter”

The question is: Do you see your beliefs, or do your beliefs tell you what to see?

As you read, remember…

Every word written is metaphorical, there are no absolutes. I do not “believe in” anything, I merely consider the plausibility of all things and make applicable, the assumption, as it renders itself necessary at any given moment. I allow momentary convictions room to breathe and give my mind permission to be malleable. For the great mystery is unknown to those that know it and known to those that know it not.

Death Doula

This profound experience happened around 2014. Linda's mother Josephine had been in hospice for 7 years. I knew that she was in the process of passing, as Linda had informed me. Earlier that day as I was working at my desk, I suddenly felt the urge to go visit Josephine.…

Flaccid Atrocities

Listening to music without experiencing the feeling of bass in your body is like swimming in a puddle, or having sex with a mannequin, or eating pasta with no sauce, or seeing a rainbow in black and white, or smelling an artificial bouquet of flowers. Yet, it's everywhere. In casinos,…

Diluted Linguistics

Excalibur replicaLet’s discuss what I refer to as diluted linguistics. Before we get to the heart of the subject, we need to first let go of something.. namely, your beliefs.. as they limit your ability to objectively digest subjective material. Lee Papa, founder of the Ganesha Center, commonly uses the…

Intellectually AWOL

Don't thank me for my service. I didn't do anything to protect your "freedom". But, if you're interested, I'll tell you what I did do. I went to boot camp, put on a uniform, sang the songs, and fully immersed myself in an eighteen-month long education of the inner workings…

Demystification Through Etymology

Let's demystify some words through the etymology of the words themselves. Oh, how the religious leaders love to magically melt our minds into believing their hypnotic rhetoric through the learned confidence of their vocal projections and how eager the fragile egos are to have faith in such fables of immortality.…

Patriotic Perversions

Those in power have no remorse in killing a few million of its own in the name of profit and control. They are well aware that the death of a relative will inspire hate, revenge, and fuel division. We react to a war we think we are fighting for a…

Crazy

Crazy: ie; weird, different, informal, unique, impractical, bizarre, unpredictable, imprudent, misunderstood. So I’ve been told, I’m crazy. I appreciate that. In other words, i do not conform to the societal standard of normal based on the geographical location of this cultured environment. The idea of normal is a collective conglomeration…

Disappear

It’s not often that the stars align with such synchronistic precision, as to place in the path of your journey an entity that ceases the seemingly random vibration of your atomic structure, allowing the symphony of your chaos to find complete harmonic resonance when your eyes meet theirs… When the…

Listen

"When we hear, we either accept or reject.. or we translate what we hear according to our knowledge, our background.. or we compare what is being said to what is already known.. or we oppose one idea by another. All these characteristics of hearing deny the act of listening. When…

The Wise Ones

Human superstitions are absurd! How ridiculously disgusting can we be with our tiny boxed, fear-based, monkey minds? I'm going to go off on the literal interpretation of the word and concept of "witch" for the moment. If anything, the "witches" or "wicchis" of the world should be revered, not feared.…

Eye See You

This is what I’m saying to you when I look into your eyes with my own. Utilizing the English language to the best of my ability, through non-verbal communication, attempting to reduce the irreducible into words. “Please remove your mask. I do not wish to interact with your role. I…

Extinguish Your Desire

Stop looking for the flame between you and another. Otherwise you will find yourself settling for the first flicker of hope. The consequences of your impatience and fear of being alone will cost you more than you want to pay. Chances are, you are familiar with this cost, yet you…
