Tree Spirits

Like everything else in life, the spiritual path has a trick to it that they never tell you about.  They tell you how you should think and feel: “Accept all things evenly, as coming from God”;  “Desire nothing, cling to nothing”;  “Let the world be as ashes in your mouth.”  What they don’t tell you is that this state is impossible to achieve in a real, meaningful way by one’s self.  We need a guru or an embodied spiritual agent acting upon us to truly transform ourselves.

Don’t Get Stuck at the Poles

Many people today aren't leading happy lives. Sorrow and sadness cover the masses like a heavy blanket. Most of us look for happiness as if it's a hidden treasure that we will eventually discover, but it's often very elusive.  Driven by the need to be happy, we pursue many things.

Getting In-Sync with Natural Rhythm

We exist in a fast paced society. We rush from point a to point b. We're on the move, and always on the go.We dance to the beat of someone else's drum, and forget our own. Then suddenly we find ourselves exhausted, uninspired, unmotivated, and questioning what's wrong. We're so busy thinking of our next move, that we aren't paying attention to our present one. The place where there is peace, not anxiety, and not depression. The past is gone, and the future isn't here yet. When we choose to…

Are You a Reaction Machine?

“People gifted with wonder tend to be easy to spot. They have a joy that seems to require no data and is not diminished by seeming evidence to the contrary.

Reframing, An Essential Communication Skill

Relationships are sometimes difficult. We don’t get what we want, and we get a lot of what we don’t want. We can start to slip into a mindset, of “Relationships shouldn’t have to be this hard, or “I’ve gotten involved with the wrong person.” These kinds of thoughts may or may not be…
