On Building a Highway

There’s a psychological trick we may unintentionally disrupt the flow in our life with, only because, as per usual, we’re not aware that we’re doing it. In fact, we employ a lot of paradoxical or conflicting programs all the time, so it’s no wonder that we often find ourselves flailing about or otherwise overwhelmed, confused, frustrated, and stumped. This inevitably leads to a variation of the blame/shame game, and more often than not, turns inward.

We often talk about a “better world,” but very few if any of us really know what that means. We just know that something feels wrong, and that it doesn’t have to be this way.

In every moment we are given the ability and the responsibility to choose to do the right thing… or not. What is “right” is a divine, unattached, momentary locus of you-plus-universal intelligence — not simply what might be culturally or socially acceptable or expected, not what your family, or elders, or peers would expect, not anything but the pure and blessed essential true-ness of this naked moment.

Keeping Up with Fear

Isn’t it fascinating some of the patterns that exist in our space and time? I think there are plenty of obvious and hidden layers of conflicting and contrasting energies we’re swimming in 24/7, and I think it’s time we establish some new ones.
