Tragically to this day, this condition is often times judged wrongly and misunderstood. In the process of this happening, many suffer without understanding or the proper steps to help them with this.
While suffering from depression people are fearful, robbed in life before they even begin. Depression is not something to be ignored or made light of. It is a serious condition which if let untreated will move to an even more... (more)
"Anything you do from the soulful self will help lighten the burdens of the world. Anything. You have no idea what the smallest word, the tiniest generosity can cause to be set in motion. Be outrageous in forgiving. Be dramatic in reconciling. Mistakes? Back up and make them as right as you can, then move on. Be off the charts in kindness. In whatever you are called to, strive to be devoted to it in all aspects large and small. Fall short? Try again. Mastery is made in increments, not in leaps. Be brave, be fierce, be visionary. Mend the parts of the world that are within your reach.... (more)
Gazing over what appears as
A boundary between earth and sky
As if a mirage is gently
Blooming on the distant blue horizon...
A sinuous wavelike movement
Flowing freely in this sea of contemplation
I see you rise and fall
Watching your hands trashing....
Waving one last time a goodbye
Or are you beckoning me closer
To rescue us from this divergence
Which has no solution in sight....
I keep my distance
Only watching, only seeing, only feeling
To return will plant a snarl of hope
Someday....many moons from now
In another place and time
I know not where
There will be moments recognized
I will look into your eyes and know you
Know you without knowing
As if we have shared a different
Lifetime where we were joined
As kindred souls blessed with truth...
I will already know your heart
With no words spoken between us
An instinct which surpasses time
I will recognize your scent as if
I have breathed you into my being
Infusing itself within my own essence
Your laugh will... (more)
I know many of you may read this and not agree with me. But I know in my own life, this is what works for me. I refuse to walk around with bitterness, anger, or negativity of any kind.
It is easier, in my humble opinion, to bless someone than to harm them....if someone betrays you, pray for them....you want to change it, pray for them...pray for 5 minutes for their happiness for 30 days...because this is what alchemy is , this is what it is... any magical power or process of transmuting a common substance, usually of little value, into a substance of great value. Basically what... (more)
"A life without mistakes is lived without joy."
Most of us fear mistakes more then anything. Mistakes bring on ridicule in some cases. But then you have to look at the source of that ridicule and determine if they have any right to be judging you, and what their own issues may be. Mistakes expose the frail, unsure insecure person we can be. You really need to examine where this type of thinking is coming from. Somewhere along the line, someone has hurt you, and you have allowed them, in some ways, to take away your personal power. You can, and need to take it... (more)

To teach myself to think of you
Without so much emotion
Without longing to look
Into your sweet eyes
Which showed me your soul
A soul connected to my own...
When will the pain stop?
How do I let it be at peace?
I told you long ago
I did not want to live in a world
Now you are gone
My souls still cries for you...
I am here
You are there
In a better place
So they say
I am selfish
I want you here with me
My heart not able
To let... (more)
Life truly is what you make it
I will not waste my energy
On the world testing my resolve

Painting me into a box...

Go, go from me
I will never embrace
This unjust living trying
To enslave my heart
With what will never blossom
Into my known purpose....
I refuse to stumble and fall
When weary I hold tight to faith
Knowing there is nothing that
Will shatter my resolve
Having been blessed and branded
With trials... (more)
Today I wake with a hunger
to search the valley
A place where birth lingers
with it's sacred memories
Instead I find voices of condemnation
wounds which left me bleeding, sticks and stones
Still I look for healing, grace, truth, reality beyond
the narrow confines of intolerance and judgement.....
I climbed the mountain summit
Where I had placed my hopes and dreams
Breathless with perseverance
Resolution and persistence my tools
Embracing only the shadow of what had been
once upon... (more)
