The most alive sadness in your heart

As you wander through this world, you might become aware of the most alive sadness filling your heart. This is not the sadness of the mind, where something is felt to be missing, but is a reflection of how precious it is to have a human body, senses to make love with everything around you, arms to touch and hold another, and words to speak kindness. Just this is none other than a wild miracle. … [click on title to read and view more]

She’s Alive… Beautiful… Finite… Hurting… Worth Dying for

Our planet is dying. It’s dangerous to be in any sort of denial about this.

The most important question we can ask ourselves is “what am I doing to serve the planet, humanity and all of life?”

I’ll repeat what the person who passed this onto me said, “PLEASE take time to watch this and turn up your speakers. Allow it to soak into your soul.” … [click on title to read and view more]

Being alive means we get traumatized

I like to say that if we are not suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, we are suffering from pre-traumatic stress disorder. There is no way to be alive without being conscious of the potential for disaster. One way or another, death (and its cousins: old age, illness, accidents, separation and loss) hangs over all of us.

Here’s the thing: when you come off of psych drugs…

…. So with that preamble, I’m sharing some tweets. I still share this info but I do it in a crowd of people who largely have never thought about these things. In other words, I no longer cater to the choir. I think we need people everywhere and introducing these ideas to folks who’ve not considered them is also important.   ~~ The stories of the drug injured matter. We are buried beneath a pile of pharmaceutical propaganda. The human species actually needs us sensitives. Wake up the rest of you! That’s why I’m here where virtually nobody pays attention because some of you actually need this info.

Skepticism is a healthy process that aids discernment…

Let’s not demonize the skeptic! While anything can be taken too far, skepticism is a must for healthy individuals in our dog-eat-dog world. I made this rather sarcastic observation recently: ” I don’t know what to do with myself. I guess I’ll be a life coach.” Nothing like somebody who couldn’t figure out what  to […]
