THE TRUTH ABOUT SOLITUDE

Solitude is the penicillin for a social disease called Social Media. Solitude is a necessary part of self improvement and personal growth. It allows us to understand that what we grasp for and envy in others is something that actually lies within us. We look so far outside of ourselves, we never realize that the answers and riches we yearn for all lie within. Sometimes you can’t help sounding new agey, but those answers are buried within us and it’s the matrix of the modern world that prevents us from experiencing and knowing this truth. I wrote a bit about … Continue reading THE TRUTH ABOUT SOLITUDE

Earth Energy and What My Dog Taught Me

There’s a bumber sticker on a car I see all the time that says, “Be The Person Your Dog Sees You As”. I love that because it reminds us that our pets don’t judge us and want only to love us and to experience the feeling of love in return. They are all about the win-win situation!

Blood Moon Observations

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.

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

Finding Yourself

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

Where Fear Resides

I’ve been writing a lot about change as it’s associated with our personal growth and there is much to be said on this subject, but for now I just wanted to drop a quick thought that occurred to me about it. We’ve all heard about being fearless and taking risks that test our boundaries of comfort. We do things to gain strength and overcome the fear itself. But it occurred to me that the greatest fear that most people have is not something like asking someone out on a date, standing up for ourselves or merging into fast moving traffic. … Continue reading Where Fear Resides
