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...

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 Disappearance of . . . Generalities

The Disappearance of . . . Generalities

“Begin to imagine life passing through you rather than getting stopped for examination at its intersection with you.  . . .  It will seem as if you are shirking some primal responsibility to assign meaning to everything.”   Leaving meaning behind undoes the...
The Virgin

The Virgin

The Virgin and the Desire to be Good   I am finding myself hampered of late; hampered by “no” desire to be good, but hampered worse, by the desire “to” be good. Recognizing that both desires exist within me is an ongoing discovery, an inner dialogue guided, in...
