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
I’m very happy to announce the release of my first book, Toxic Rainbows. I have so many feelings and thoughts associated with what I’ve written that I struggle with even giving it an elevator pitch that does it justice. It’s philosophical, psychological, spiritual, autobiographical–it’s a manual for gaining clarity in a world that is designed to distract and distort perception. As I wrote, I realized that I had been keeping mental notes my whole life on what I had been learning, observing and understanding about myself and human nature. The pain and confusion I saw around me compelled me to … Continue reading BOOK RELEASE! Toxic Rainbows out now!
My book, TOXIC RAINBOWS will release this Fall as an ebook. Enjoy this excerpt. We are living in a time of relative abundance, excess and opportunity, yet we continue to feel deprived and left wanting for more. What is it that’s missing? Can it be satisfied by shopping, having another child, redecorating? This empty feeling and searching for substance is brilliantly depicted in Orson Welles’ classic film Citizen Kane and was more recently explored in Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World. We see in these film characters a desperation to possess an unnamable something. Similarly, we sense a … Continue reading Is More Not Enough? What’s Missing? – Book Excerpt
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
Last night before I turned out my light, I contemplated the idea of potential and natural ability. What is it that drives us? What are the things that we gravitate to that are inspired by our own desires and not of the influences forced upon us? How do we truly flourish when we feel others should come before us? Or if we take credit for something we didn’t actually do or express a thought that didn’t come from our own mind? How DO we access our true potential without giving in to pressures or taking an easy way out to … Continue reading The True Way To Accessing Your Natural Ability and Potential
How far do you think people will go to avoid their problems? Transhumanism is the ultimate in ‘convenience’. It aims to make life easier, better and more efficient. Convincing the public of anything that works against their nature and that’s detrimental to their existence or well-being has often been presented in opposite terms in order to gain trust. Awareness to the fact that inversion is a hallmark of the Matrix, makes it easier to see that transhumanism is invasive and actually an enemy of human nature and biology. Inversion of reality aside, it used to puzzle me as to why … Continue reading The Digital Generation’s Answer to Avoiding Problems
I have become fascinated by horror movies where people are transformed into monsters. The idea that a poison takes over or a contamination turns someone into a fiendish creature is an interesting theme for a movie, but the reality is that we are doing it to ourselves quite openly all the time. Triggered. Child tantrums have made way for adult meltdowns and seriously low karmic behavior goes from the periodic to standard practice. We use labels and fear to justify our behavior, opt for selective outrage and express intolerance for anyone who refuses to take part in our rage. Self … Continue reading Self Transformation Can Get Ugly
The world stopped and took notice of the Blood Moon which graced our skies last night. The once in a century phenomenon included multiple planets in retrograde and alignments that happen very rarely. I am not a very learned student on astrology or astronomy, but in my practice of self-development I am keenly aware of the power that the planets and the moon can have on us. It’s something I’m working on and have started giving more attention to. And as I’ve been making note of these things, I noticed yesterday when I got up I felt very odd, almost … Continue reading Blood Moon Observations
We all want to understand our purpose and for most of us that will require a process of change and self transformation. Positive change will shake the effects of our influences and will bring about a greater understanding of our habits and motivations. Lasting change is a process that includes a strong desire, dedication, reflection and will. Your greatest first challenge is in understanding who you are. I am not talking about the labels that are imposed upon you by society. I’m talking about the inner you that only you can know. Surviving the New Babylon first means finding yourself … Continue reading Finding Yourself
I had a dream last night about an old friend. He was my best friend for 5 or 6 years. We worked on creative projects together, we were even roommates for a while. But something happened and our friendship devolved into an energy-sucking one-way street. I had moved to the opposite coast and noticed that our telephone conversations were becoming more and more one-sided and would end when he was done saying everything he needed to say. This went on for some time until I finally explained that we couldn’t be friends anymore. We got off the phone and I … Continue reading Are You Being Vampirized?
