DEAR MEN :Do you know…“That when you enter a woman, you are actually INSIDE of another human being, you are inside of her?Have you ever realized how sacred this is?That this is the closest thing to oneness that you will ever experience, and that she holds this gift for you…That you can return to the womb and to the point of creation…That you can plant the seeds of creation as well…That when you leave her, she feels the separation as you physically pull out and leave her empty…That being allowed inside of her is a gift, an honoring, something sacred, and that it is your job to know, respect and honor this…That her heart is connected to her sex, and...

Indecision

Friend, please, Do not try to decide now.Do not shut any possibility out of your heart. Honour this place of not-knowing.Bow before this bubbling mess of creativity.Slow down. Breathe.Sink into wonderment.Befriend the very place where you stand.Any decision will make itself, in time.Any choice will happen when your defences are down. Answers will appear only when they are ready.When the questions have been fully honoured, and loved.Do not label this place 'indecision'. It is more alive than that.It is a place where possibilities grow.It is a place where uncertainty is sacred.There is courage in staying close. There is strength in not knowing. Friend, please know,There is simply no choice now.Except to breathe, and breathe again, And trust this Intelligence beyond...

Not everyone will heal in this lifetime. It’s important that we accept and understand this. The perpetual emphasis on acknowledging and healing trauma is a beautiful thing, but its not for everyone. Because some of us don’t have the capacity to heal. Some can’t even get out of bed, because of the weight of their pain and the complexity of their trauma. Too much has happened, and there is no possibility of transformation. This is very hard to accept in our toxic positivity culture, one where trauma is the new buzz word and where people forget that they are not walking in someone’s else’s shoes. Just because you were able to heal parts of your past, doesn’t mean everyone can...

The Sacred Heart of Trauma

Sometimes things don’t go our way. A loved one dies. An unexpected result comes. A relationship falls apart in a way we never could have foreseen. An infection returns. A business venture dissolves overnight. An attack comes out of the blue, shattering a body or a dream, or both. Something that seemed so solid and real yesterday turns out to be much less than what it seemed. And a part of us cracks open. For a moment, all of our mind-made defences crumble. We are new-borns again, no longer invulnerable to the overwhelming glory and horror of creation. We are faced with the awesomeness of own impotence before the vastness of the cosmos, without the protection of ego. For a...

Are You a the World’s Salvation?

Every single day, all over the world, shootings, fires, torture, killing, violence beyond comprehension.How to hold all of this in your fragile heart?Ignore it? Deny it? Pass it off as 'mere illusion'?Tell yourself 'it's their problem, not mine'?Label others as 'evil' and separate yourself?Close your heart even more?Was it not closed hearts and quick judgements that caused the devastation in the first place?Seeing the daily 'realities' of this planet, one may be tempted to give up entirely. Give up on healing, give up on change, give up on humanity itself.What's the point? There's just too much violence out there.Too much ignorance. Too much pain. Too much evil.We have passed the point of no return, you may say. A fair conclusion.Better...
