How We Grieve

  “When my Guru died in 1973, I assumed that because of the important part he played in my life, and the love I felt for him, I would be inundated with grief. Surprisingly, I was not. In time, I […]

Riotous Roots

  Winter is approaching here in the Western hemisphere and with it, a time of hibernation for many. Cozy cover burrowing, bundling up in multi-layers to keep toasty. One might think of winter soil as fallow; or unseeded, but the truth […]

Love Poems to God

Words come from a Divine Source, as far as I am concerned. since my writing (as if does for other wordsmiths) ‘writes me’.  It flows through me and not from me. There are times when I have looked back at […]

Turning Into Prayer

  “I have prayed so much that I myself turned into prayer — / Everyone who sees me begs a prayer from me.”-Rumi Prayer is one of my favorite life practices. It is a constant companion from the moment I […]

Existential Longing

  Had the inclination to post this on my Facebook page about an hour ago. “Noticing since I had the heart cracking open experience last week, that I have been feeling an existential loneliness that I haven’t had for a […]

Blessed Are The Weird

My friend and fellow wordsmith Jacob Nordby (author of The Divine Arsonist) has created a sensation with these simple phrases that have been showing up all over the internet.  There is a method to his madness as he and sister […]

Responding To The Call

Lately the line has been ringing off the hook with calls from the Universe that send tingles down my spine, buzzing in my ears, rattling in my bones (in a good way), hair standing on end, and  goosebumps on my […]

Passionate Life

What are you passionate about?  What lights you up from the inside and turns you into a human sparkler? Is there something that you simply can’t wait to do when you get up (after taking care of necessary bodily functions, […]

You-niverse

“Do not feel lonely. The entire Universe is Inside You.” ~Rumi When we are born, we enter into a multi-sensory realm that is quite different from the cozy, contained watery world in which our tiny bodies and beings floated for 9 […]

Where You Look

  Singer songwriters are my heroes. They take thought and inspiration and turn them into magic moments. As a writer and poet, I am fascinated with the process they go through, but have not yet immersed myself in the songwriting […]

Labyrinth

Like many spiritual practitioners, I chose to engage in a ritual to honor the numerologically auspicious date of 11/11/11 .  As timing would have it, I happened to be in Sedona, Arizona on Friday. In the midst of the Red Rocks vortices, […]

                         Although we have not yet met face to face in this lifetime, I feel as if Courtney Walsh is a creative kindred spirit,  and soul sistah whose astonishing way with words, sets my heart to dancing. I […]

Let The Beauty We Love

                                                    Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and frightened. Don’t open the door to the study and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument. Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of […]
