Female Intensity – Male Logic

Posted on Saturday, June 29th, 2013 at 4:34 pm.

You are getting so intense – he said.  No shit, I think to myself- every cell of my body is screaming. Well if you stop ABC then I will stop XYZ he says, trying to fix the issue we were caught in.  What!!!!  He missed the whole point – that I worry about him, that…   Read more »

The Choice

Posted on Sunday, May 5th, 2013 at 1:31 pm.

I’ve been avoiding writing this piece.  Why?  Because I have a lot of thoughts and a lot of feelings that I haven’t been ready to delve into. There is a pair of mallard ducks that come and hang out in our pool for a few months every year. The female is a mottled brown and…   Read more »

Overwhelm

Posted on Monday, April 1st, 2013 at 2:54 pm.

Maybe you could call it a creative block, but what it really feels like is that I’m caught between these different and enormous landscapes, like being in the middle of moving worlds and everything is changing and I don’t know yet where I am standing. On the mundane level, I can tell you exactly what…   Read more »

What I wish for Jyoti Singh Pandey

Posted on Sunday, February 3rd, 2013 at 2:02 pm.

Yesterday I first learned her name and saw her picture.  She was smiling with warm brown eyes and long dark hair.  She looked petite, young and sweet.  I was glad to learn her name. I was glad to see her picture.  I was glad to get to know her a tiny bit in this way.…   Read more »

Emotional Detoxification

Posted on Saturday, January 12th, 2013 at 1:58 pm.

I read the an article about health recently and was struck by this paragraph: We are in a constant exchange with our environment, which is governed by the laws of osmosis. If mercury is in the fish we eat, over time we have mercury in our system. We cannot keep our system pristine and clean,…   Read more »

We Are Big Beings

Posted on Friday, November 2nd, 2012 at 10:10 am.

Last Thursday I went to my Dr’s again.  I still haven’t kicked whatever is making me ill. While in the Dr’s office, a man was there getting vitamin C intravenously.  He had cancer.  I told him that I ‘wanted to kill’ whatever was making me sick – the bacteria or virus that were in my…   Read more »

Enough

Posted on Sunday, September 30th, 2012 at 7:32 pm.

I was outside. It was night. Someone was behind me: his hands on the small of my back propelling me dangerously forward with enormous force. I was scared. I tried to decompress the uncomfortable arch in my back but the force was too great. I tried to steer myself towards a large overweigh man, thinking…   Read more »

What is Compassion?

Posted on Tuesday, August 28th, 2012 at 2:15 pm.

Sometimes we confuse compassion with rescuing someone else.  Compassion is not rescuing.  It is feeling the other person’s pain.  Compassion does not mean that you agree with how they see reality.  But it is understanding and caring about their reality. I’ve always been a compassionate person.  I have always had empathy for those people, animals…   Read more »

Inside and Out

Posted on Monday, August 6th, 2012 at 1:01 pm.

Some of the big shifts in my life occurred when I started to look at the difference between inside and out.  Examining this difference allows you to discriminate between what you think you want (ego perspective) and what your life wants of you (spiritual perspective).   Sometimes these are the same things – but not always.…   Read more »

Family

Posted on Thursday, July 5th, 2012 at 12:28 pm.

This past Saturday Mike and I were married.  Our wedding was beautiful and felt blessed.  We were surrounded by love and support.  We shared our inner feelings about each other in a visible ceremony of commitment.  A wedding is such a powerful ritual because it symbolizes family, commitment, love, and connection.  It symbolizes a new…   Read more »
