The False Lure of the Absolutes

This is the BEST BLOG POST THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN. Well, in truth, that’s rather doubtful. But, how often lately are we seeing claims in the news and on social media that proclaim that someone or something is the MOST (something) EVER? Far too often, in my opinion. It’s one thing for us toContinue reading “The False Lure of the Absolutes”

Where Am I Now? Feeling into the Liminal Space

Have you ever experienced a time where you felt “between” things? Perhaps, between this phase of your life and the next? A time when there is no movement and no clarity on which way to go in your life, or no way to get where you think you should be. If so, you are inContinue reading “Where Am I Now?

I see my stories… So am I done?

A student asked me: “I see my stories… So am I done?” Un-Storying is not ultimately an intellectual process.

Getting Sucked Back in to the Drama

Experiencing the world from a Non-Dual perspective, or in other words, through the understanding that nothing is actually happening other than the manifestations of mind, does not exempt one from “falling back into the drama again.” In order to explain to “others” how a shift in perspective can reveal a change to the storyline ofContinue reading “Getting Sucked Back in to the Drama”

“I’m a Fabulous Writer. Why Do I Need an Editor?”

This common refrain is heard often in the editing and publishing world. What authors may not know, is that the process of editing is much more than grammar, punctuation, and a spelling check; though those are necessary tasks for any copyeditor or proofreader.
