MAGIC


Walking along in the forest, I felt a cool breeze on my face and arms, as beams of sunlight pierced through tree branches and reached down to gently touch the pine needle covered path below. As I walked on, slowly, I became aware of a faint, low humming sound that seemed to eminate from the shadows of trees and shrubs off to the side of the trail. Quietly, I stopped to listen and the sound stopped. Slowly, I started walking again, and the sound soon resumed.  

I walked around along the path as it turned around a corner, and I continued hearing the sound, yet still there was nothing that I could see, and the low frequency of the sound made it difficult to pinpoint location.

Wabi-Sabi

Wabi-Sabi (Japanese)
a way of seeing the beauty in
imperfection, of knowing that everything (even you) is perfectly imperfect,
of feeling a sense of acceptance
and appreciation of everything, just as it is.

The Game

Breathe free
To See
Power in Love
Brilliant light above

Growing
Flowing
Time stops going
All is glowing

Slow, then Fast
No Past
No End
Still, let's pretend

9 Lives

If it's curiosity that killed the cat....

Then it's acceptance of death that brought him back!

Playing a role.

It's better to play a role than to be played by one.

Funeral for a Friend

THE RIVER

Virgin mother, dark and sweet
Fecund water reaching deep to
George's cross of wooden teeth

Ashen waters muddy swirl 
White burning wood is swallowed hole
Where frogs and fish feet twist and twirl 

Hello, Goodbye
The bright white light that makes us fly
As slow we spread our wings to cry

Paradoxical Interventions

If you can't beat them, join them

Progress

You must go slow to go fast.

- Roberto Assagioli

A Story About Healing

If there were a story about healing, it would not best be told as a persistent journey out of the darkness into the light, but rather as a series of criss-crosses from darkness into the light and back again into darkness...
 
And the measure of our progress would not be defined by the amount of time we spend in the light or the dark, but rather how often we traverse one boundary into the other, stitching the two poles into one, like two halves of a broken heart.

Mission Statement

To create reality with intention, imagination, intuition, and patience.
To maintain a sense of connection; to self, to others, and to the universe.
To be the eyes and ears of the universe, reflecting its beauty.
To witness and facilitate this process in others who wish to pursue it, without diminishing one's own sense of connection.
To expect guidance, everyday.
