All diets are bullsh*t

This is what I’ve learned during my healing trip. What made me sustain a healing diet is getting the nutrients I actually needed. Different people are in need of different nutrients at different times…macro and micro. What you eat, for that reason matters greatly. What a healing diet looks like is going to be radically different for each person and is going to change a lot for individuals over time .. if one is healing there is no such thing as homeostasis, so it follows that your needs are going to change. With my radically dysregulated nervous system my needs can change daily. So becoming acutely mindfully aware of those changing needs became critically imperative. …

Psychiatry (fueled by western culture) systematically eliminates us so that we cannot contribute to humanity

The capitalistically oriented “healers” and “spiritual” teachers are the pharisees/charlatans of our time. The real shaman/medicine people are being systematically wiped out/disabled by psychiatry. We don’t have mentors because our kind have been wiped out for generations now. (think of witch hunts, for example, before psychiatry) There is no one left to recognize us as children […]

Pain

Owning my pain. Once its owned it loses its power. Pain is a neutral sensation. It is impersonal and part of being in a body. Pain is not only a neutral sensation but when experienced as such, in clarity, it offers pure data. Wordless info that only the body can convey. …

And recently, this happened…

The below is a bit out of context because it was shared on twitter where I’d brought up this circumstance before. I had a friend/mentor/ teacher that I spoke to once a week for about four years and then remained in contact for a couple more. I never considered him a guru or anything but […]

Becoming conscious is risky business

When people are sensitive and they get labeled mentally ill…the force of all of society believing it’s an illness is projected onto us…If we don’t come to understand the actual toxic force of this it will kill us. That is the tragic truth. And it’s no small thing to do that. When all of society projects the belief that ugly, intractable uncontrollable forces are making us sick…well, no surprise…we get sick…To allow that toxic shit to flow through us once we accept the label of mentally ill, is again, no small thing..most of us cannot do it …

Embracing darkness and shadow that we might also be light and joy

Here’s the thing…in as much as we cannot abide the pain in others we are unawake to that pain within us…heal ourselves we heal the whole … people who studiously avoid the “negative” are missing out on their own healing…we don’t need to go look for it, but avoidance is denial. … those who need love most…are the ones we studiously avoid …the “difficult” people who’ve been hurt in ways we can’t abide…sometimes others find me to be that person…most readers of this blog perhaps have felt rejected in this way too at one time or another.
