Spiritual Sleight of Hand

You know how when something is on your mind it seems like that something is everywhere all around you?  Like your mind puts a filter in place and now everything else fades away and all you can see is that thing?  Told you can’t have dairy and suddenly everyone is eating dairy, cooking with dairy,…

The Occult Problem

My life is pretty wacky at the best of times.  While the general populace is going to concerts and getting together to yell at the basketball game, shrieking at bad calls by refs and cheering on their favorite players, going out to play games and enjoy the water and sun, I’m writing blogs and working…

Being Receptive

“The receptive is a phenomenal power–it attracts, generates, it sets the whole dance in motion.  In the Hindu tradition, divinity is symbolized by a yoni, surrounding a lingam.  The yoni draws the lingam in just as much as the lingam thrusts.  You need both.  Receptive energy is magnetic.  That is how it initiates–it draws what…

Life Is Short

On the one hand, no opportunity is truly lost.  The specifics may change, the timing, but if it’s something you really want, it doesn’t matter that you didn’t get there 10 minutes ago or 10 years ago, you can have it now.  Yes, it will look different than it would have before, but you are…

The Room Of The Undressing

Startracks.   Spiral nebulae.    Craters of the moon.  She lets herself fall.  She falls into the room of her wants.  The room where the demands of women are endless.  Where her voice has endlessly demanded her to go.  This room which reveals her.  Where she is clumsy again.  Where she is awkward in her grown-up clothing. …

Now Or Later

At some point, now or later, you’re going to have to risk BEING YOU in order to find out who that really is. Not the conditioned you, not the “you” you’ve been taught to believe you are, who you really are. And this perhaps will be the scariest, the most loving, the most rewarding thing…

It Feels Like…

Part of what draws people to a spiritual life is a feeling that they need to do something or be something.  It’s like a religious calling, but less well defined or less structured.   And most of us want to know what that calling is and want to achieve it the best way we can. This…

How’s The Ride?

So we’re nearing the end of the first 1/3 of Horse’s year.  It’s a good time to look back and get an idea of how things have changed from the New Year until now.  My sister taught me something years ago and it has stuck with me, although I usually apply it in way I…
