HOLY WATER

HOLY WATER

A rather big shift of awareness happened the other day: I finally invited divine love, with all its unruly magnitude, to come crashing in. Not only did it arrive on cue—it stayed, taking up residence within me. As me—kind of. But not yet 100%. Nowhere near. So now it seems, in effect, that I’m living with a very large celestial roommate. For lack of a more accurate description. This was no sudden incident out of the blue. It was precipitated…

A Year without Fear: (IM)PRISONER

A Year without Fear: (IM)PRISONER

I thought I was done with the war between the sexes. For me, that battle was so, like, 1975. I am woman, hear me roar, and all that. I’m not making light of the very serious and ongoing worldwide challenges women face at the hands of men, mind you. I’m just saying that, by and large, it hasn’t been my fight. Over the decades of spiritual practice, my early gender rage and frustration have slowly given way to genuine empathy…

ENLIGHTENMENT-AHOLIC

ENLIGHTENMENT-AHOLIC

Funny, isn’t it. You’re positively sure you know some fact or other; you understand it completely from your head down to your toes. And then one day the candle of Knowing spontaneously ignites, and whoosh!  It’s made a liar out of you, just like that. The other night I came to know — really know — there’s no point to the goal of attaining future enlightenment. Mind you, I would have said I already knew that chasing a phantom “future…

GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PRESENCE

GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PRESENCE

Lately I’ve been happier and far more peaceful than ever before in my life. Of course, that’s not saying a lot. From day one, I’ve always had far more heart-thumping, grindingly antsy anxiety running through my veins, than actual blood. Mind you, it’s about a thousand times better now than when I first began my spiritual journey. But (as anybody on a similar path knows), when this painful ego stuff gradually begins to clear and sanity is strengthened, the crap…

THE BREATHWORK CHRONICLES

THE BREATHWORK CHRONICLES

Have you noticed? There’s a bewildering cornucopia of seemingly contradictory forms of breathwork out there to choose from. Some kinds have you breathing through the nose only, others say to use just the mouth. Some want you to focus only on the inhale, others only on the exhale. Some forms of breathwork super-oxygenate the brain and body; certain other forms of breathing do the opposite, consciously restricting the oxygen in the brain to create an altered state of spiritual readiness….

JUST BREATHE

JUST BREATHE

Ever been spanked by an ancient Chinese Entity? Yeah, me neither…until last week, that is. Last Tuesday, Ken Bok [of http://acimexplained.com] came down to the farm for a visit. Although he’s interviewed me many times online, we’d only met once in person at last year’s UK ACIM conference.  Now that I’m staying in Dorset — a mere trainride away from London — we thought it an excellent opportunity for hanging out, so Ken came down and spent a couple of…

I, PITBULL (or: how I learned to love the world)

I, PITBULL (or: how I learned to love the world)

I’ve been staying with my dear friend Kathy and her adorable dog Coco recently. The other day our little household swelled temporarily from three to four when Coco’s best buddy, a darling white pitbull named Cloudy, came for an extended visit. Cloudy is a big snuggly ball of sweetness encased in 65 pounds of hard-packed muscle. And when he smiles – which is often – it’s literally from ear to ear. So delicious you could eat him with a spoon….
