my prayer to humanity

“My Prayer to Humanity”

One of the yummiest parts of my day is found in the company of my family’s stillness as we sit around the dinner table just before we eat. “Should we have our moment of silence?” Gideon, my eight-year-old, asks…

My night with love

“My Night With Love”

“Let’s fly paper airplane’s on top of the cabinets. They can be love letters for the next owners to find – a kind of time capsule,” Love said with those trenchant eyes that reach to the depths of your soul…

my snow leopard guardian angel

“My Snow Leopard Angel”

Everyone needs a friend like my Snow Leopard Guardian Angel — a bright light, a beacon, a North Star, a teacher, a wise counselor, a polished mirror to see your own reflection.

how do you hold your love

“How Do You Hold Your Love”

How do you hold your love? Do you hold her from stillness, with nowhere to go, with nothing to do? How do you hold your love? Do you hold her with acceptance, with open hands and arms, with unabashed…

Cultivating loving attention

“Cultivating Loving Attention”

How many of your words and actions are reactive & automatic? How many are reflective and intentional? What would it be like, what would it feel like, to intentionally love yourself, others, and the world?

the power of belief

“By Way of Introduction”

It’s spring in Salt Lake City. I’ve been writing at my desk all day and my back’s painfully aware. I glance out the window and see that the morning’s storm has washed out the pollution and left a soft blue sky…

“The Current of Stillness”

She moves in Her Stillness | Understands in Her Wholeness | Creates endless though Formless | And embraces the Boundless | She gives freely Her Charity | Paints marvelously Her Beauty…

current of stillness

“I Am”

I am that which never lives and cannot die, the unwitnessed witness and seer you can’t see. Unborn and unformed, I live without a trace and carry not even a shadow. I am that which, with my marvel, bears life…

current of stillness

“The Earth Sings of Wonder”

I wonder at the earth, my home. Wonder at her relationship with space, time, and darkness, with the sun, moon, and stars. I wonder at Her deepest oceans and highest peaks, wonder at Her deserts…

current of stillness

“Her Deck of Fate”

Her deck of fate | She passes to Life to cut | before She deals one to each child | taken from the womb of Divinity | and placed with the guardians of Time | where each morning | uncertainty rises with the sun…

current of stillness

“What Tongue & Lips Bear”

Her words sharp and strong | as the winds that carve the canyon, Grand | yet soft and ethereal | as Aletheia’s blanket | woven by light and dark | Her voice certain and fluent| as the time from which it unfolds…

current of stillness

“Life’s Craving for a Friend”

Life, an orphan, a child of darkness | generously craved a hand to hold | from emptiness, then, she fashioned a friend | dressed her with space and time | to hold stories and songs as they travel…

the divine connection

“Nurturing The Sacred Garden”

Before we tend our gardens, our kids, let’s gain perspective. Let’s climb to that all-encompassing existence, where we know Love directly, so we can bring its seeds to full, unbounded fruition…

“The Sacred Vine of Existence”

It’s midday during the dry season here in the Sacred Valley of Peru, and the skies are wide open. At ten thousand feet, I can’t ignore the sun’s greeting. The air is thin up here. This is the cost, I guess, to approach the heavens…
