On this Pride month…

Centering Thought: All the colors are needed to make a rainbow. Today I will continue to keep diversity and openness front of mind.     I love Pride month, not only because I too am a gay male, but the energy of this month is just dynamic and incredibly.

Living is…

Centering Thought: Today I am in the business of Living.   I've written before about surviving and living. I keep coming across people that are just trying to make it through this thing called life, but where is the enjoyment? As hard as things are and can get, living shouldn't be all work or even...

Love wants…

Centering Thought: Love wants to be given. Today I decide to express the blessings loving with intent will bring.   With all we do to connect with others, love seems to be seen as harder than ever to give and receive. The lack of faith in other people's intentions, causes many to recoil right before... Continue Reading →

I’m NOT your Doormat

An interesting thing happened on my way to the Dharma. I know the power people put on the meaning of words( I am a writer of course).

Working a job is easy but coming up with the procedures and protocols for life entails a bit more work, and sticking to them... Continue Reading →

However, I'm not really writing about what happened between us as much as I'm trying to understand this need for respect. As I... Continue Reading →

That’s Your Interruption

I've always known words have power. If it wasn't true, people wouldn't care what names there were called and arguments wouldn't arise from things said out of anger. But recently I have seen a few words casually thrown around by people that I don't feel have a good grasp on their meaning, giving them a... Continue Reading →

Keep Your God-Complex to Yourself

The title here is pretty strong, but I'm in an interesting head space here. I'm someone who enjoys paying attention. I observe behavior to improve my understanding of people, mostly to understand motives as to assist those looking for my brand of counsel. I also use skills learned through my Buddhist practice to make adjustments... Continue Reading →
