There's something to be said for Kitchen Table Wisdom - you know, like in the old days when people sat around the kitchen table after a meal and talked about life, the universe and the meaning of it all - as well as the gossip doing the rounds in town...

Well, that's what this place is - a place to share common wisdom, thoughts and feelings about things important and unimportant, that bring us joy, laughter and happiness and that trouble, sadden, confuse and anger us ...

What I write here is what's 'real' for me. It won't always be PC or 'nice'. We're missing out on true connection and chances to grow and change because there's too little authenticity, too little honesty, too much holding back what we really feel and mean.

Welcome to my world...

I used to have a copyright claim here, but I've removed it...

Ideas don't belong to anyone -

they come to those who are receptive and are to be used for the well being of all...

I find images and movies and music all over the web

and I use them to accent/expand on my thoughts and understandings...

Chill Out - Take Time & Enjoy the Ride

A lot of my inspiration lately has been about stepping into power, questions as to whether or not evil exists (it doesn't!), 'rules are for fools and guidelines are for the wise', and whether or not being in a place of compassion includes taking an activist, confrontational role in the world (it does - see Gandhi and Mandela and Jesus)...

I might start today with the idea that each of us are presented with the answers as we need them. Some of us are in a hurry to get from A to B, to complete the journey and we demand solutions immediately and think we are failing if we don't get them.

But as Rainer Maria Rilke says:

"Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer."
and this:

"Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave... Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.”
