What happens to a mind that gets lost? Awareness and the ability to process daily the numerous details of life whittles away into the sawdust. A blankness envelopes the mind in a subtle sense of confusion, numb to something undefinable. At times, a questioning energy surrounds the cloud looking for a way in or out, wondering what has happened to the real me. Nothing happens though. Days, weeks, months slip by, while a new seeking […]
It’s a tragic tale that repeats itself in many families; a child learns that survival depends upon running away. Without an adult to fight or stand behind/beside, the safest recourse is run and hide. These lessons are in themselves not too bad, as the reality in life does yield better results once we’ve learned to walk away. But this tragedy with the child suffering at the hands of bullying or child abuse, has created many […]
Ups and downs, good days and bad are all part of living life. It won’t always be easy sailing. This doesn’t even take into account that catastrophe’s do happen in people’s lives. I’m simply talking about getting up and going about the same business you usually do, and just thinking and feeling, “Wow, this is a crappy day!” And you know what? It’s okay. We aren’t always on top of our game. Take a look […]

He is those spaces – perfect – there is no light, […]
Most people overwhelmed by and completely identifying with a condition applied to their particular health issue might actually be able to overcome their challenge through exercising their mind. With a focused effort upon creating change within the mind and the thoughts that arise, the effects of the mind upon one’s emotions can evolve. As emotions affect chemical production of the mind, becoming aware and engaged in changing thoughts can also affect the feelings generated by […]
It appears even to me, that much of my writing is heavy, and even full of anger. Reflecting upon what this is all about, many things raced through my mind. One is how someone once wrote inspirationally is now turned to a style and focus that has brought attention to bear upon the darker side of our human experience. Justification, rationalization, all represent possible arguments, however, I believe that opening up the expressions from those […]
Grow Trees Originally uploaded by Thiru Murugan Everything experienced around you is a reflection of what is within. As I’ve endured, I’ve overcome. As I’ve overcome, I had to embrace. As I embraced, I integrate. As I integrate, I see the mirror more clearly. The more clearly I see, the more quickly I change. The more quickly I change, the more quickly I grow. Coming?
From the archives July 23, 2005 When I was a young man, even a teenager for that matter, I always had an optimism that was hard for others to overcome. Even in the midst of the all the negative influences from family and peers, this positive optimism was difficult to beat down. I was powerful, I was lucky, life was magic. I remember it like it was yesterday. It didn’t matter how many times I […]
Notice the Curse of Consciousness Who, or what, is really happy? Humans? Or Life just Being?

Native americans have a long history of honoring and respecting this fact. Animals and other natural elements offer signs, omens, legends, wisdom, and more to their culture and spiritual beliefs. For Christians, my research into some of their oral stories reveals that a number of their stories of […]
