Only Love

“There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.” –Don Juan de Marco

I recall watching this 1994 movie starring Johnny Depp, Marlon Brando and Faye Dunaway with a sense of awe, delight and validation of what I have long known to be so; that ‘reality’ is subjective. In case you missed the film; Johnny Depp’s character, dressed as a latter-day Zorro, attempts suicide and is found by Marlon Brando’s psychiatrist persona. Brando’s doc-self listens with rapt attention and fascination to the stories shared by the love-struck young man claiming to be ‘Don Juan’, the world’s greatest lover. As he attempts to sort out ‘truth’ from alleged psychotic delusion, his life and relationship are transformed.

How would your life be altered if you knew for certain that regardless of the question, love was the answer?

    Love is the answer. Yet how that plays out in one’s life and daily living is the essence of who we are and the relationships we have with the world
    I am Love, Jeff

Hurt People Hurt People?
Lately, I have been pondering this conundrum: Why do people make violence acceptable? I see so many photos and videos of people hurting animals and people, images of abuse that whoever shot the films somehow think is cool. I understand why folks post them so that someone can identify the perpet

Make Your Life Spectacular
    A few days have passed since the world heard the devastating news that someone who entered their lives and lodged in their hearts (even if they never met face to face), had succumbed to the depression that had followed him for much of his life. When Robin Williams died, so too di

When Lives Touch
    I have been pensive lately for many reasons. The first is that I am still in relatively new life renewal mode. Two months ago, I was lying in a hospital bed with all manner of accutrement attached to my arms; beeping and chirping away. A pin hole was poked into my right wris
