Everything’s Unprecedented

Everything’s Unprecedented

A week or so before the election, I heard a political reporter interpreting some polling. He was making the point that the information gave a pretty clear indication of what results we could expect, and that if this were any other election, we would feel pretty...

Humpty Trumpty is Having a Terrible Fall

Humpty Trumpty is Having a Terrible Fall

Our personal and cultural mythologies are very powerful. And when they get disrupted, the results can be both transformative and chaotic.   For the last four years, many of us have wondered what it would take to bring Trump down. He has broken every rule, norm, and...

Empathy for the Devil

Empathy for the Devil

As I write this I’m doing my best not to puke in my own mouth.   I really don’t want to say this, but I think it’s important...   I suggest we forgive the President.   He is a sick old man who is facing his demise politically and literally. For his entire term, I have...

How the spiritual sausage is made

How the spiritual sausage is made

How does a spiritual practice work?   You probably have a good idea of why you would do one, or what you hope to achieve or create, but how does it function? I bring this up because I believe having some sense of this helps enhance the results.   For me, there are...

Traffic jam in the fast lane

Traffic jam in the fast lane

Does it feel like part of you is stalled? Treading water? Killing time until things change?   We’re at a peculiar intersection in the big transition. It feels like this is both never going to end while also coming to a head quickly. It can result in a kind of...

What can we learn by understanding our “Inner Saboteur” better?   I recently appeared as a guest on the Profitable Joyful Consulting Podcast. To get you in the mood, I decided to focus this piece on one of the central components of our relationship with the...

The discerning mask wearer

The discerning mask wearer

How are you holding up in the face of this never ending stream of fear, anger, and hate?   Do you get sucked in, ranting, arguing, or compulsively sharing “Look how stupid they are” posts and videos? It’s tempting - after all, they are really, really stupid.   Do you...

The Unbearable Discomfort of Being

The Unbearable Discomfort of Being

Are you resisting what is? Here’s something I’ve been working on:  For emotionally and energetically sensitive people, this can be an especially complicated and uncomfortable time because there’s so much difficult stuff swirling around. Random feelings and sensations...

The Good Old Days

The Good Old Days

How long do you think it will take us to get back to normal?   Sorry, it's a trick question. We're never going back. But more importantly, it’s the wrong question. Because if you're still thinking about the way it used to be and how to turn the past back into the...

It’s not a lie if you believe it

It’s not a lie if you believe it

I want to try an experiment.   I'm going to describe something my wife does and give you my interpretation of it. Then I'm going to ask for her version and share it here without changing anything I wrote beforehand.   She and I have never discussed it in much depth,...

My new imaginary best friend

My new imaginary best friend

I think I figured something out.   This is very frustrating for me to write about because I still haven't found a way to describe it to my satisfaction. It's something I'm sure some of you already understand. In some ways it seems overly simple and I'm not sure...

Did you bring enough for everyone?

Did you bring enough for everyone?

One of the most transformational shifts you can make in consciousness is from a competing for power mindset, to one of power sharing. Competing for power perceives that there is a finite amount of (money, love, authority, attention, resources, etc.), so anything I get...

Who put you in charge?

Who put you in charge?

Why is it so important to be able to identify sociopaths and understand how they operate?   Because we are a civilization in decline and that is when they thrive.   There is a great spiritual shift taking place. Things are changing on many levels and we...

Crash Course

Crash Course

Donald Trump is inarguably the least qualified, most incompetent, and most corrupt President any of us have ever seen. But that's not the worst part. It's his sociopathy. Now, we can quibble about borderline personality, malignant narcissist, psychopath, etc.; we all...

Bad Enough For You?

Bad Enough For You?

This is a time for optimism.   I don't mean the "look on the bright side" or “expect the most favorable outcome" version. There's no rational reason to expect our current situation to just work itself out. This has already been an utter disaster for millions of people...

The Cure for Patriarchy

The Cure for Patriarchy

Are you interested in big change or do you want things to go back to the way they were? There is a natural desire for order and stability to be restored - to return to the familiar. But are you sure that what we were used to was working? This year will forever be...

Our First Chakra Emergency

Our First Chakra Emergency

Do you notice spiritual themes in this global crisis?   Most people are, of course, focused on health and money issues. But beyond the immediate, very pressing survival issues, you can also feel some very powerful metaphysical issues coming to a head. Such as......

Just Be With Me

Just Be With Me

Just because you feel out of touch with your child energy, it doesn’t mean it isn't already present in your life. The child is there somewhere, it's just that you don't recognize them. Even though it's painful to be out of touch with you, it’s safer for them to be...

The Horsewoman of my Apocalypse

The Horsewoman of my Apocalypse

In my own life, the most obvious and powerful appearance of the Destroyer proceeded the most significant personal transition. The most painful part birthed the happiest and most meaningful part. The Destroyer is easier to see on a big, sweeping, historical scale (the...
