Grate Expectations

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

bring-it-all-back---cover-artworkall our expectations of another ever do is set us up for pain and disappointment – and the more we’re emotionally attached, the deeper the cuts, the sharper the jabs, the thinner the skin…

if we keep expecting them to change, what we must expect is to keep hurting [ourselves]. it’s a tricky thing, but not so complex.

our culture is orientated heavily toward immediate gratification, with an emphasis on what’s in it for me? and me first! – essentially a gross imbalance in the idea of entitlement. their uses are varied, and they can be subtle, though nonetheless cumulative in their negative vibe, eroding genuine connection and isolating our hearts.

these notions have no place in healthy relationships. nor does martyrdom, which is the polar opposite, emotionally; the uneasy mismatch of unworthiness and self-sacrifice:

if i can give enough of myself, maybe they’ll change…
if they can give enough of themselves, maybe i’ll change…

when we both give authentically of who we truly are, we’re free to fully, honestly be ourselves.

where there is space for genuine expression, there is harmonious spirit. allow for love’s simplicity to bring heart-centered clarity. challenge the old, painful habits and impulses (ie. jumping to conclusions, assuming the worst first). question the need to complicate communication. breathe into the healing that’s always available at the speed of thought. know you are safe, always.

we are more. we are enough.

love your life,

Bring It All Back


Osmotic Intentions

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

2012-12-27 14.10.06we learn – and learn to accept – a lot of maligned rubbish, ideas, and beliefs, through societal osmosis.

fortunately, we also disseminate paradigm and consciousness shifts in much the same way.

still, it doesn’t hurt to be more aware. start with the heart.

We Are the New(s)

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

P1060212we need a new…” is moot, outdated, and no longer of any service to us, collectively.

it is a relic of armchair activism, patriarchal and religious separatism, bubble-brain, me-versus-you mentality; it presumes we are fragmented, isolated, and wholly powerless, when in truth, we always ARE the new:

economy
government/democracy/republic
education system(s)
medical, holistic, healing arts/artists
spirituality
peace makers
peace keepers
industry
conscious activists
urban planners
community builders
unity thinkers
singularity…

look around.

love your life,
