Peace is Possible With or Without Conversation

In the over-verbalized life of a modern (American) adult, we tend to feel the need to talk, text, and type about everything. Everything needs to be a conversation, especially in relationships. As a recovering verbal processor, I’ve often felt the need to get closure with someone I’ve had a disagreement with by talking to them. But now that my belief system has changed, I don’t look to a conversation for comfort about an ending. This article is NOT about spouses.  Continue reading “Peace is Possible With or Without Conversation”

Gaia is Quite Grown and Doesn’t Need Anyone to Save Her

“Gaia, the earth is angry at us!”

“Global warming is real!”

“Global warming is not real!”

“Eat organic and don’t eat meat.”

“Don’t litter.”

“Save all the endangered species.”

“The oils have contaminated the oceans.”

You Are in a Life Simulation Game and You Can Talk to the Player

 

Imagine that you are a character in your favorite life simulation game or role playing game like “Sims” or “Kim Kardashian Hollywood.” Your Higher Self is you, and you are the character in the game. When you come to the realization that you and everyone you know are characters in a highly elaborate game, you wonder who the “player” is. It is your Higher Self.  Continue reading “You Are in a Life Simulation Game and You Can Talk to the Player”

I Just Learned That Fear Has a Consciousness and I Wrote Her a Letter

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Fear,

Hey Babe. I want to start off by apologizing to you. In the past I really didn’t know you well enough to understand what you’ve been going through this whole time. I thought that you were the enemy. I thought that you were the reason why people hurt each other, why people don’t pursue their dreams, and why people judge each other.
