Kill the snake?

I don’t know. I simply don’t know. Too many things I have been certain of have become illogical and childish now. Now I can only question and wonder and seek a way to be my own true self and live with responsibility.  The snake and the dragon, one real, one imagined… beautiful, dangerous creatures for…

Conveyor belt Christianity

They do not know they cannot see the ones who work this dusty machinery to them it is their call to ministry Call this their home then make them a clone full of doctrine and knowledge and ritual and garbage Tell them this is a family where they can belong as long as they go…

The Emperor’s clothes

Comparisons and Contradictions Paradigms and Paradoxes Irony and Incongruency Metaphors and Relativity Conscience and Consciousness I’ve been trapped in the realm of linearity of one-dimensional dogmatism Where the dogs are vicious they growl and bite they also want to get out of this prison this lesser than smallest non-space of gruelling greyness false hope daily…

Laughing again

There is agony and ecstacy in living deeply with awareness rather than hiding and lying to ourselves as we pass through our days just existing or surviving So I choose awareness questioning and risk I allow myself to question the reason and feel the emotion by which I live I consider the longings and desires buried…

Myth makers

And it was evening and it was morning, another day.  And we said, let there be love. And then we lived it, we made it so. We chose to be gods: to love and forgive, not ignorant of your humanness our shadowside, our tiredness. It’s is not by pretense that we become gods but by…

Love is not a fairy tale, it is a myth

Rant

I recently read a book by Dr Philip Maffetone: “The Endurance Handbook”. It is a marvellous book. Whether you consider yourself an endurance athlete or not, I recommend it. If you have a body and you are alive, you are enrolled on the greatest endurance event there is. It is called life and life can…

Blissful surrender

We can try to make sense of our own path in life from many different perspectives. We are complex beings who live complex lives interwoven with each other’s and the other life forms all around us. Who can understand or make sense of it all? I think it is a worthwhile pursuit for each and…

Surrender

Learning to let go can take a lifetime, maybe more. Learning to flow with life and it’s rhythms can take a lifetime, maybe more. Learning to make magic out of what can so easily become mundane can take years. Life is difficult and marvellous, full of frustration and paradoxes. There are also moments of bliss…

Unicorns and all such things

Shame will snuff out the sparkle and let the magic of miracle making energy disappear replacing the possibility of love with fear So watch out and wash out the things that bring shame the thoughts and the judgements the long held beliefs that ask you ‘”what is wrong with you?” and tells you “well, you’ve only…
