Recent world events have certainly opened our eyes to the uncertainty of life on this planet. We have come so far in our knowledge and understanding of this Universe but not far enough in human coexistence.

How to sustain the living and cease existing

Abstract.....To live life fully is to find a right balance, and as we do our own bit of existing ceases to exist and living emerges into something solid, something that can live in the light. As we navigate through regret and choice, something real comes out through all of this. That is us and our authentic living.

The need to destigmatize the stigma of emotion

Abstract....There is a stigma undeniably involved with the releasing of emotions. The undeniable truth that hits the face the moment we feel that compelling urge to break free of the feelings that seem to strangle our throats. Somewhere between what we reveal and who we are inside is exactly where we struggle with the bottled emotions. As we hear the all- time used “get over it”, the truth is we do not get over it until we get through it. Letting the…

True Purpose

The purpose of life is to feel feelings.  Period.  Life has no other purpose.  By the term “true purpose” is meant our intent in a given lifetime – the reason why we incarnated; the lesson we are on this earth to learn; what we must witness and bear; what we must feel.  True purpose is what Carlos Castaneda’s teacher don Juan termed the “mood of a warrior”: it’s what makes us feel good (not smug); satisfied (not self-satisfied).  True purpose feels like fulfilling our destiny (rather than…

What resilience has to do in recovery

Abstract.....To recover is to be resilient, as to be able to bounce back is to be able to flow again like a running brook. The glaring question is, how do they keep going in the face of adversity. Even when life brings them down to their knees, the way they know how to rise stronger than ever, emerging from all those yesterdays, the lost battles, leaving behind the failures and regrets—that defines their recovery and innate in that recovery lies their…
