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...

Becoming a Parent to Yourself

Becoming a Parent to Yourself

How do you begin to recover and heal a damaged inner child? The child part of you holds many important components of the spiritual path: innocence (beginner's mind), unbounded imagination, the capacity for play and wonder, unconventional creativity, and an ability to...

Losing Your Light

Losing Your Light

A damaged childhood is the most common experience among the many gifted spiritual seekers I have worked with. Early trauma doesn’t cause a spiritual connection, it’s actually the opposite. There are people whose life purpose is to channel large amounts of spirit into...

The Next Great Depression

The Next Great Depression

Does history repeat itself? I would say yes and no. I see the world in waves, levels, and cycles. That means things constantly come around again, but they aren't exactly the same the next time - you might be on a different level this time or you might approach it...

What a manly mind you have

What a manly mind you have

"When I was doing ['Girls & Sex'] the kind of core issue with girls was that they were being cut off from their bodies and not understanding their bodies' response and their needs and their limits and their desires," she says. "With boys, it felt like they were...

No Surrender

No Surrender

What if I said that most, if not all, of the struggles we face in the world today are related to the fact that we live in a patriarchy? Sound hyperbolic? Politics, religion, the economy, the environment, the media, our social structures, and education are all based on...

Britain’s latest revolutionary war

Britain’s latest revolutionary war

The archetypal Destroyer is obviously running rampant in America, but it is simultaneously engaged with many other countries, and these situations are not unrelated. I'm going to use the U.K. to illustrate how the Destroyer shows up for a collective identity. When an...

It takes a weirdo to heal a village

It takes a weirdo to heal a village

You're a big weirdo. You may not think of yourself that way, but if you're reading this it's almost certain that in your family, your community, and your life in general, you are something of an outsider. Maybe not in a painful way. Maybe in a way that you heavily...

Our old friend Shiva

Our old friend Shiva

Last time I talked about how many of the constructs that we have depended on to structure and make sense of our world are disappearing. The social, political, economic, environmental, and spiritual norms we are so used to are crumbling because we have resisted letting...
