The Holy Grail Hidden Within Duality

  The Vesica Pisces is a common visual presence across many world religions. In Italian it is called a mandalora (almond), similar to the Indian Mandala. Within the center of each of these religious symbols balance is achieved. Most importantly, one reaches this center through the synthesis of the two edges of Duality. It isContinue reading “The Holy Grail Hidden Within Duality”

The Dance of Love: Divine Balance

Don’t drink at the water’s edge, throw yourself in. Become the water. Only then will your thirst be quenched. ~Jeanette Berson In The Battle of Love I chose to isolate myself in my Castle’s Keep. At the time, I felt defeated and it was time to retreat. I felt like I had repeatedly fallen in theContinue reading “The Dance of Love: Divine Balance”

Living Betwixt: Being the Bridge

Here I explore my love for living in two different worlds; recognizing my near constant need for changes… Born into life, lifeless. As I pushed through the canal of my birth, suddenly frozen was I. For when the doctor slammed the mask over my mother’s face, forcing her against her will to a medicated delivery,Continue reading “Living Betwixt: Being the Bridge”

The Weighting Game

So sad to see this beautiful woman, looking at her weight/her worth and being aghast…. The game where when weight you gain, you only lose your worth. The game where when weight you lose, you gain, maybe. Self-love, self-respect, self-acceptance can still be elusive, in skinny jeans. The game where your worth is inversely proportional toContinue reading “The Weighting Game”

Balance in Life: Theme for 2016

As I wrote this post, a new realization dawned upon me. In the beginning, I seek balance, by the end, I realize it was always there. I did not edit the content, instead leaving my process intact for the reader to see its evolution. The lesson here seems more to be about already having in my possessionContinue reading “Balance in Life: Theme for 2016”

Shifting: Choosing to change

This is a response to Shifting: Out of Focus.  I’ve made several shifts over the last two weeks to improve my routine, and my life. Shifting back into focus, I’ve started waking up 60-minutes earlier in the morning so as to not feel so rushed and to allow for me to start a morning self-careContinue reading “Shifting: Choosing to change”

Disconnecting Facebook to Reconnect with Myself

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. -Ralph Waldo Emerson Last week, I went cold turkey. I shut down my Facebook account without fanfare and without much of any warning. It may only be temporary. Heck, it’s only been five days, so it’sContinue reading “Disconnecting Facebook to Reconnect with Myself”

Giving the gift of giving

“Gracious acceptance is an art – an art which most never bother to cultivate. We think that we have to learn how to give, but we forget about accepting things, which can be much harder than giving…. Accepting another person’s gift is allowing him to express his feelings for you.” – Alexander McCall Smith, Love OverContinue reading “Giving the gift of giving”

Pro-Peace AND Pro-Military: The seeming contradiction

To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace. George Washington I love guns. Big guns, tanks, armored vehicles and war machinery; the bigger the better. I love fighter jets, warships and the military. Special forces, yep, you guessed it I’m a fan. Those who serve often put everything onContinue reading “Pro-Peace AND Pro-Military: The seeming contradiction”
