You choose

February 14, 2017 in Journal

Every little action you take is a piece of you, it represents who you choose to be.  Not necessarily who you really are – your spirit, your soul – but who you choose to be.

Go a little nuts

February 7, 2020 in Journal

Create art. Go a little nuts.
Go wild, go wild. Just go wild.
Wild woman.

Culture is

February 4, 2020 in Journal

Culture is a human-made idea, often a man-made idea. And it’s just that: an idea. An imaginary construct enough people have chosen to believe to make it real.  It can change at any time and it should. Culture is the external companion of our collective psychological, emotional, and spiritual evolutionary process.  Acts of violence, cruelty, and barbarism held with indifference or as sacred and reverent in the name of ‘culture’ are external symptoms of a willfully ignorant ego.

It’s like

July 6, 2019 in Journal

It’s like someone who is so mentally ill they don’t even realize they’re sick. That’s what patriarchy is to me. That’s what misogyny is to me.
That’s what racism is to me.  That’s what white supremacy is to me.
That’s what colonialism, homophobia, bigotry are to me.
That’s what the mass consciousness of the current cultural construct is to me.

Perspective

July 6, 2019 in Journal

It’s important to have perspective but that should never be used as a form of cruelty against yourself. It shouldn’t be a weapon to suppress your own challenges and deny yourself of compassion and self-care. Everything about you is important.

Insanity of man

July 6, 2019 in Journal

Insanity of man looks down on compassion, love and peace.
Insanity of man is obsessed with dominance, false power.
Insanity of man doesn’t understand the only way forward is through the heart.
He is afraid of what he doesn’t know.

Audacity

July 6, 2019 in Journal

The audacity to assume peace can be negotiated without half the world’s population present.

There are a great many leaders – religious leaders, non-profit leaders, political leaders, community leaders – that have the audacity to assume they can negotiate peace without half the world’s population present.  Not a special guest speaker, a witness, an assistant or consultant but present, equally, at the table. Represented and heard and believed – not tolerated, not placated, not entertained for the sake of appearances or quotas – but heard, accepted and understood equally and with merit and respect.

Then comes action.  The action is the proof as to whether you really heard us after all.

Hierarchy of value

December 18, 2018 in Journal

An interesting thing to do is practice self-awareness when it comes to your hierarchy of value for sentient life. Does the cow mean as much as your pet dog? That mouse? That crow? Your child? You? The homeless person on the park bench? That worm on the sidewalk?  It’s interesting to observe and then ask ‘why’ you have decided different beings hold different value.  Soon you’ll realize this value hierarchy is just a human construct.

Love is not hard

August 6, 2018 in Journal

I think love is only hard because we get in the way.  Love, in of itself, is easy.  It’s what we add around it – all the obstacles, shame, projections, ego – that are painful.  We are afraid to surrender to it.
