A Denial of Wisdom [Part One of Two]

A Denial of Wisdom [Part One of Two]

By Kathy Custren

Wisdom, Denied...

We, all of us, are brought to a certain place and time for a reason. What that reason is, however, may vary from person to person based, in large part, on what we are meant to experience. Example: When the car I was driving hit a deer on the turnpike, “Here’s your deer…,” it felt as though a…

Keeping Centered

Keeping Centered

by Kathy Custren

The urgent challenge in keeping centered caused me to compile the words in this message that come from a number of sources. Please keep this in mind as we review what is presented. There is a real need to find healing, oneness, balance, and peace. This is true at any given moment; it is something we all seek, deep within, and that can be…

Ascension: Rise Above

Ascension: Rise Above

We humans have many connections to the air element that go far beyond what we might identify most commonly. Sure,…

Beware the Glamour

Beware the Glamour

By Kathy Custren

Glamour may be used to describe when we see something especially beautiful that beguiles us in a certain way. For those of us who say we appreciate beauty in all its forms, the application of glamour can be seen as a dichotomy of negative and positive traits. We may like it best—maybe accept something or someone more—when it is beautiful; yet, we are cautioned…

Guilt, Stigma, and Five Considerations

Guilt, Stigma, and Five Considerations

by Kathy Custren

Guilt…it can be a real eye-opener to discover that there are those who live, day in and day out, carrying an overbearing burden. As with many things in life, there can be too much of a good thing, which is just as true about guilt, if not more so. When guilt or another person’s expectation becomes extreme, it can also feel very…

One’s Own, Unique Voice

Let us take time to consider our own, unique voice, shall we?

Finding one’s voice can be an interesting process. We may not think of it as such, but from the time we are mere infants, we are encouraged to do just that. Consider that, from…

Crossroads

Facing new challenges can be daunting. While this may pertain to the joining of two unique musical styles (as with the CMT show of this same name), the crossroads we explore can bring a much more diverse experience of vibration our way. Beyond the anxiety of the unknown, there are any numbers of possibilities that await the traveler, in whatever realm we may move.

Travelers are…

The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

In opening a line of thought, this literary excursion includes two favorite subjects, words and food. Both are important staples, in any life, really. Both serve as markers of change and evolution, from academic and anthropological standpoints, as well as physical and spiritual ones. There are a few points of understanding that we may choose to acknowledge as we begin.

Number…

Relative Stillness

Sitting in the relative stillness of the later part of the midnight hour, marveling at the fact that it has been over a month since I last published an article, the silence is striking. It does not compare to the cacophony of the natural world that takes over at night, yet it is what we have grown to know. If outdoors, we may be kept awake at night by nature’s dark symphony; while indoors, we are able to silence the external…

Precious Resource

It may not matter what the resource is, whether it is a physical one like water or a more spiritual one, humankind has grown very used to placing some sort of measurement of value upon it. We measure fuel we get from the earth in terms of barrels that equate to dollars. We assign units of energy and equate them in terms of a particular quantity it will take to heat or cool a…

Getting Darker: A Treatise on Energy

This is a “Friday the 13th” offering, in appreciation of the changing season. Remember we are each a fractal of something much larger, and begin by saying this exploration is not all about doom, gloom, or even depression. We need to acknowledge that something is up. Or, perhaps it is down, depending on one’s perspective. Maybe orientation does not matter; due to the important shift…

Cusp of Change

We live in interesting times, there is no doubt. First-hand experience teaches us that we are on the cusp of change. No matter how things may appear, each of us will have to deal with the problems associated with change and illness as best we can. Knowing what we are going through--really facing the issues directly--will help us to…

Sickening

“…But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” -- Buddha



I am not feeling well. It is part of a much larger illness, really; a spiritual sickening. On the plus side, I have figured out why I am so affected. The last time I felt this poorly, I made choices that improved my health and happiness, bringing me into…

Earth Screams

It seems that no matter who says what about the earth and environmental matters these days, too many of us respond with a “ho-hum” sort of attitude about our planetary home. For the past few years, all the talk about climate change, carbon emissions, energy troubles, and other ‘dangers’ that we and our planet face, have not led us to change many of our own habits. It makes sense that…

All the Little Places

We can expect that no matter where we place our limitations there will always be someone or something that comes along to challenge and change them. Our hometown or our local neighborhood provides social roots and serves to ground our life. However, there comes a time…

Clarity of Singularity

“To understand one thing well is better than understanding many things by halves.”

--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“A jack-of-all-trades and a master at none.” -- Unknown

The Conundrum tells us, in its own, unique way, that there is more to being one person. As confusing as that may sound, we can…

A Deliberate Life

The recent death of actor, James Gandolfini, brought a review of his interview on the show, “The Actors Studio,” in which an associate of his described Gandolfini’s work as being ‘on purpose.’ It was a very honest report of what made him such a success in his roles. It is a reminder to us all that purpose serves to make a deep impression.

Each of us embodies varying degrees of…

Happily Naive

Something dawned on me the other day. It happened indoors, so it is not even attributable to being out in nature, as is usually the case. The idea crossed my mind that I like knowing. Curiosity does exist as part of our human nature, and we can choose to view it as a definite blessing in life.

If we are mindful, we find that it often does not take a lot of work to find out…

Gift Keeps On Giving

A recent email about future possibilities managed to spark a little something. The day the email came felt a little odd to me. It turned out that my sense of disconnection was coming true in more ways than one--but more on that later.

The gist of the email was that there is more to life and that we were shifting into a new paradigm. Such messages are not very specific about what…
