Your Heart is Not A Commodity

Your Heart is Not A Commodity

We treat our Hearts as a commodity, offering love in exchange for security, support and a way to avoid own thought created demons. We trade our Hearts to each other. I’ll give you mine if you give me yours and all will be well until our Heart becomes lonely for Its own Home and wishes […]

Are you the chicken? Are you the egg?

Are you the chicken? Are you the egg?

Do I look and sound like you? Do you look and sound like me? Are you the chicken or are you the egg? There is no new thing under the sun. All ideas now are recycled and repackaged from times before. What makes them unique is you and when we get bogged down on feeling […]

Letting Your Biscuits Cook

Letting Your Biscuits Cook

My Aunt Lorene made the best biscuits on the entire planet. It pains me no end that I will never have those biscuits again because no matter how she tried to train me I could never make them exactly the way she did. She threw flour, Crisco, salt, and milk or water into a bowl […]

Don’t Ever Change

I don’t know about you but I am pretty tired of being told directly or indirectly that I need to change. I’m tired of thoughts that are constantly tweaking on tweaking. Well if I could just do this a little less or a little more or not at all. If he would just, if she […]

But Did You Die?

I’m paraphrasing that of course however it struck me like a gong and I’ve been sitting with this for days. Today it is sinking in and I’m finding words for the earth-shaking meaning of […]

Praying for Understanding VS Release

Praying for Understanding VS Release

My life’s work is decreasing shame and helping you learn skills which increase your ability to accept all the parts that you’d rather kick to the curb and forget about, which by the way isn’t even possible, so sorry, bro. I’m a Shadow Walker. I just made that term up but it sounds cool doesn’t […]

Saving The Perpetrator

Saving The Perpetrator

The ultimate act of compassion is intervening to stop a perpetrator. Not out of vengeance, rather out of an expression of deep love, out of the understanding that the consequences to the Soul doing the harm often exceed those of their victims. This understanding of perpetrators is astoundingly difficult to grasp. As humans, our instinct […]

Waves of Creation

Waves of Creation

Growing up in Texas it’s easy to take flowers for granted. They’re just there, literally all over the place most of the year. I spent an enormous amount of time studying those flowers, being aware of their comings and goings, colors, scent, all of it. First Lady Claudia “Lady Bird” Johnson, bless her, made sure […]
