The struggle for individuality is real. It’s a sad irony that it persists only because we judge others and wage war against those we don’t understand. When we become threatened by the individual whose expressions run counter to anything we like or comprehend, it is easy for some of us to condemn them for it. In turn, we are paid back by having to struggle with a desire to express our own nature, one that has become repressed and buried so as to avoid a backlash that we know exists. We know it exists because we’ve taken part in … Continue reading The Truth About Individuality
THE TRUTH ABOUT SELF-DECEPTION. The difficulty with self-deception is that even if we know we are deluding ourselves it is incredibly hard to accept because the cause of much of our delusions got their start by believing in something that had been passed on to us by people we love and/or trusted–these people wear many hats. And it’s not that they all did this deliberately, but it shows how deep self-deception goes and how it can easily morph into delusion. Once we’ve accepted something as an absolute truth it creates a blockage that makes it extremely difficult to overcome and … Continue reading The Truth About Self-Deception
THE DEVIL & HAPPINESS. I went to sleep last night with the intention of finding answers to share with you about the secrets of Happiness and the response I got this morning was a message about…The Devil. Such are the mysteries of understanding and gaining knowledge. There is an ignorance which many of us suffer and that is the blindness to the powers we each have within and a belief that happiness is something you can only be obtained through material gains or power over others. It is the belief that we are bound to worthless garbage as a necessity … Continue reading The Truth About The Devil
There’s a person I know, someone who I’ve admired for years–creative, passionate about life, engaging, fun, a joy. But then I realized that nearly every moment she shares on social media has been of outrage and venomous hatred. It’s gone so far that she has even called for the death of people she does not agree with. I’ve made a point of staying away from the mind-controlling echo chamber of thee main culprit of social media conditioning, an entity whose name I won’t mention, but the ferocity and number of people who’ve been effected by the programming seeps through nonetheless. … Continue reading Intolerance is Hot Right Now
I often think about identity, persona and how we see ourselves. In my book Toxic Rainbows, I talk about how I felt early on that I was different, not the fact that I was a minority, but that my thinking was not quite the same as most and I saw that the brilliance in our differences and how standing out from the crowd was not a bad thing. But accepting our uniqueness is sometimes a hard thing to appreciate in a world where people are bullied and shamed for being true to themselves or even ridiculed for their physical differences. … Continue reading Embrace Your Inner Dodo Bird
Toxic Rainbows is a book I had no intention of writing, but it came out of necessity. It wrote itself after a few years of self-reflection and contemplation of how as a society we are to function spiritually in a world where spiritual transformation plateaus with a hollow meme or a proficiency at yoga. I am a Generation X writer with the perspective of having experienced life pre- and post-internet. The remarkable experience for some of us was watching life unfold as a veil of delusion was constructed around us. We have the capacity for second sight because we can … Continue reading Toxic Rainbows – Fall 2018 Release
I like to think that most people are genuinely caring individuals who strive for fairness and encourage love of their fellow man. Deep down, I think we all want that, but sometimes it drives us to imbalance. We start to see injustice wherever we look and choose not to see when things are actually going well for us. Our good intentions of ‘righting a wrong’ by becoming angry or emotional simply creates more of the negative vibration we seek to eliminate. Everything Vibrates. Vibrational energy works in a two-fold way. It is put out and attracts more of a similar … Continue reading Are We Poisoning Ourselves With ‘Goodness’?
