Black and White Thinking

I just finished reading a book, the most recent work from a teacher I have worked with and admire.  She’s a well respected academic who was a pivotal member of those women in the 60’s working in San Francisco reimagining spirituality and reconnecting with women’s embodied sense of the world and our place in it. …

Anais Nin

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it.…

Souls can be damaged

Souls are eternal and as much as love and betrayal can hurt and bullying can be deadly, they usually don’t leave scars on the soul.  We grow and become because of our experiences, both what we consider ‘bad’ and ‘good’, and we can learn much more at a faster rate from the ‘bad’, unfortunately. …
