Man’s whole history consists from the very beginning in a conflict between his feeling of inferiority and his arrogance. The dawning of consciousness begins with the awareness of the opposites Since we hate what we fear, we must wrestle with our rage and arrive at a conciliatory attitude and make propitiation. Otherwise, we are obliged … Continue reading God needs Man in order to become conscious of himself.
My act of gratitude from the time we lived at the edge of the universe and learned the dance of creation. Timelapse of two nights at our ranch in New Mexico during monsoon season.
Today, one month ago, our home in New Mexico exploded. A propane water heater malfunctioned, and caused a massive explosion that was so powerful it knocked us off our feet and ignited our home in flames. We scrambled to put on clothes and find our cat. We grabbed nothing because we spent every possible second … Continue reading
I got excited and gave Jenni all her presents early. Lol. So I stayed up all night and painted this for Jenni. I’m not a painter, so it’s good that J cares more about meaning than perfection. Besides, when she wakes up... she’ll help me fix that neck and chin right up. Lol. She’s an … Continue reading Wonder Child
I think people fear certain symbols in dreams and in even tarot readings. We apply our western judgements and morals to symbols and we fail to see that the potential that a symbol, such as, thief, devil, or death, for instance, might carry qualities that we need to integrate in our lives in order to … Continue reading The symbolism of the Thief is not what you might think
The Shadow and Evil in Fairy Tales by Marie Louise von Franz. I have little doubt that the secrets of the universe are coded in fairy tales. Metaphor, symbols, and dreams are the language of the Soul, and the Soul is life itself. True fairy tales that are passed down through generations are like a … Continue reading The Shadow and Evil in Fairy Tales
I’ve returned to this book over and over again. This book was what introduced me to the Baba Yaga, the nature goddess, who lives in a hut that spins around dancing on a chicken leg. She is the dark side of The Good Mother. She does not tolerate anything inauthentic, she will gobble you up. … Continue reading The maiden King
We exist in many parallel worlds. That is to say... who we think we are in this world is only but a small fraction of who we truly are. We cannot know our totality, our vastness, or our who we truly are in our fullness. We live simultaneously in other dimensions. This earthly existence is … Continue reading Who is watching?
Excerpt from an interview with Marion Woodman - Conscious Femininity The feminine in many guides like the Black Madonna and the Crone is erupting in individuals.... The Crone ...I want to say one other thing about the feminine because the feminine always comes in threes: mythologically there are the three graces, the three Norns, the … Continue reading The Crone
Excerpt from Marie Louise Von Franz, the Shadow and Evil in Fairy Tales One may wonder whether it is physical loneliness or spiritual or mental loneliness which seems to invite possession by evil. Personally, I would say both. In the stories I have told it is mainly physical loneliness, being alone out in the woods … Continue reading The Boogey Man, Loneliness, and the “It”
There is no sense in talking about “being true to yourself,” until you are sure of which voice you are being true to. People who dream of wearing their parent’s glasses are not seeing with their own eyes. The old frame has to be broken. Without our own unique inner vision we become stuck in … Continue reading Inner Vision
“Its all about allowing space to be moved by that which is unknown.” Taking time to nurture the soul through creativity allows for an experience of “unfolding”; becoming the freedom, shaking loose the notion of inadequacy; releasing energy through expression of color, movement of limbs, intuitive poetry or writing with no apology or inhibition that … Continue reading Paradox of The Unfolding Soul
This thing we have called God, is another name for life itself. It is our breath, our life-force, and the essence of our deepest Self. It is something that thing that flows between us, that moves within us, that circulates all around us. God happens. Whenever there is love, there is God. Wherever there is … Continue reading God Happens
We are all connected to a “divine Spark” within us that moves us beyond all of our religions and beyond all of our beliefs. Every healthy religion is an authentic path that becomes an avenue to a shared Universal, and that Universal is greater than any particular path. Where we get in trouble is … Continue reading On The Nature of Reality
Excerpt From: (Rabbi Rami Shapiro, Embracing the Divine Feminine) In the beginning was Logos, and Logos was with God, and Logos was God. This one was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Logos, and apart from Logos not one thing came into being that has come into being. In Logos … Continue reading The Divine Feminine: Lady Wisdom
Excerpt: Marion Woodman Creativity is divine! To me it is the virgin soul opening to spirit and creating the divine child. You cannot live without it. That's the meaning of life, that creative fire. The child picks up that unspoken yearning, that unlived life, and the compulsive repetitiveness that expresses and escalates denial. … Continue reading Conscious Femininity
