To Complete a New Creation

To Complete a New Creation

I wouldn’t have “Memoria,” readied for publication if it weren’t for uniting with Michael Mark for its editing. We . . . Michael and I, and we, “all of us,” join together to compliment and complete any new creation. It’s not just about a creation such as a book. It’s...
Be Present for the Coming

Be Present for the Coming

It was such a mistake to play Leonard Cohen all morning yesterday. Such a beautiful mistake. He got in my head. Shoveled over me with his guts and power and voice— “his” words sat with “mine” for a while. Just recalling it is stunning my brain on this morning of our...
Alleluia and Hallelujah of Paradox and Praise

Alleluia and Hallelujah of Paradox and Praise

On the 11th day of the 11th month at 11:00, the Armistice of 1918, the formal agreement that marked the official end of World War I, was signed. It would later be said that the harsh terms of the agreement led to WWII. My Dad and three uncles served in WWII.  ...
Be Who You Are In Truth

Be Who You Are In Truth

Your ability to express the beauty and truth of who you are has been taught out of you by learning practices that sought for sameness and saw not your differences as the gifts they are. All of these learning practices were the product of false images of the way...

Manifesting

Manifesting

I thought I’d share with you this dialogue I had with Mother Mary a short time ago (August 19-20, 2021). I am in the midst of final edits on “Memoria,” the second book of the way of the Marys, and I was having a bit of a hard time with this “practical” aspect of this...
Highly Sensitive and Tender People

Highly Sensitive and Tender People

THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE READ IN A VERY LONG TIME I LOVE IT:  From Elaine Aron, writer of Highly Sensitive People As some of you know, I took off three months from my usual tasks (mostly answering emails, doing interviews, speaking, etc.) to focus more on writing...
On Seeing a Hobo

On Seeing a Hobo

(And a whole lot more) I got up at four o’clock and had been reviewing my thoughts on Dialogue for an hour or more before the sun began to rise. Then my attention shifted to the wash of coral and lavender on the horizon. I just had to stop writing and raise my eyes....
The Dear Ordinary

The Dear Ordinary

This is what I call my early day: the dear ordinary. Nothing is tugging at me in my cabin mornings. I drink of the nectar of the day. Sit still in the awaiting. The awaiting of what comes. The “before,” prior to the naming of things. It’s anterior, brazen . . . this...
