No Hopes or Fears

Hope. I know, the word has been tarnished through overuse and politicization. But I still like it and hereby reclaim it. And we need it desperately. I have some to offer: In recent months, I’ve seen a large uptick in fear based narratives on social media – reports that many well known scientists, including Stephen Hawking, foresee the breakdown in modern civilization happening soon. And then there’s the constant stream of news out of the nation’s capitol where our so-called leaders are reversing protections for the the working class, immigrants, women, national parks,...

Responding to 11-9

The sky is blue this morning in Seattle. Opening wide my curtains, I let the colors stream down through the optic nerves, lighting candles of hope, joy, wonder in the long hallways of the spirit, within each and every cell of my body, illuminating consciousness with the wavelength of transcendence. We are born from the stars. Our very bodies are composed of atomic elements which were formed inside cataclysmic supernovas billions of years ago. The mind-spirit which dwells within each one of us are infinite rivers of clarity and mirror-like awareness, with no beginning or end. These truths are...
