“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.

Empty Mind

Empty your mind, make space for something new. When someone asks you to describe yourself, what comes to mind? Most of us will reach for the defaults: I’m nice, kind, caring, adventurous, compassionate, funny, etc… Whether we really believe these things about ourselves or not. In most cases, we use…
