Prose; Rear View Mirror


I was looking straight ahead, as usual, driving my car. I very rarely look at the car behind me in my rearview mirror. For some reason, this time I did. She was alone in her car with sunglasses on.  I tried not to stare because somehow, I could tell she was upset. I must have …

Heartset; Breath controls Feelings


via Alone/lonely I was inspired by Cristian Mihai's blog about being alone. I shared the link above. Please read it if you have not. I actually just blogged on "I'm Alone Now" because my nineteen-year-old son left home. I told Cristian that I related exactly to about eighty-percent of how he feels and I'm guessing …

Heartset; Inspiration Is Just Competition


  We are our own best friend or our own worst enemy. Sometimes being inspired by someone just means you want to compete with them. Competition is a bit of an illusion because there is plenty to go around and you can't compare two people's lives to each other. Thus, there is no real competition. We're …

Essay; The Sacrifice Model Shores up Patriarchy


My last post was about men as a subject, women as object and how that can pivot so that men are objectified as well under the paradigm of patriarchy.  That's not something that most women are aware of. First, let me remind my readers that neither male nor female dominance in civilization is ideal. We …

Heartset; Subject-Object in Life


  I'm on this planet to act, not be acted upon and that's not selfish. It's what we all need to do; act on behalf of ourselves in our own lives so we can unconditionally give to one another. Remember diagraming those sentences in school? Subject, verb, object. "What is the subject of the sentence …

Heartset; Let Your Heart Break


Why? Why should we let our hearts break? Because the release of that hard emotion, the bitterness, the layers of cynicism and resentment of everyone who has ever wronged us, really badly on this dang planet where families are put on a pedestal and should not be, where marriage and love are put on a …

Heartset; Breath controls Feelings


via Alone/lonely I was just inspired by Cristian Mihai's most recent blog today about being alone. I shared the link above. Please read it if you have not. I actually just blogged on "I'm Alone Now" just a week or so ago too because my nineteen-year-old son just left the house. I told Cristian that …

Re-Program; David Bohm, Quantum Physicist on Wholeness


For me, life in civilization (in the city) can become a grind. I generally do enjoy being an urban dweller, but like my patients, unless we release our fragmented perceptions of our bodies and life around us, it can become oppressive.  I don't believe that life on earth is inherently oppressive; it's our mind and …

Heartset; There’s No One Left. I’m Alone.


It has finally happened after twenty years. I live alone in my house, no men, no noise, no demands for food or rides, this or that, "Mom can you help me!" "C' mon, let's go to the store". My son's dad died two years ago...the last time I saw him was Christmas Day. Five days …
