Becoming Lost

Everyone faces conflict as a child, whether it is a quick fist-fight, hair pulling, name calling, or group confrontation doesn’t really matter. What mattered is we stood up to it. Albie was new to the neighborhood. After being in a foreign country during his father’s last Embassy posting, he was still unaware of the adjustments he would have to make in the very near future. His young father was becoming an entrepreneur and placed more […]

Bleeding Deeds, Life’s Lust

I lead with my heart, letting deeds bleed me cold. The cruelty of form and substance was told, teach this boy to be a man, to claw and cling for every scrap, this life is our trap and rapture, and all the bleeding a must to trust. Launch yourself into oblivion, again and again unknowingly lost, seeking to find the innocence that slowly disappears in the dust. A phoenix you will be, one day near […]

Living Paradise

Eking out a living in this paradise Gimme Johnny Walker, neat, no ice A few more of those I’ll be alright Getting me through a long slow night Twisted pain of death lines my face Another chance tomorrow my saving grace I’m here to fight, never say die Always chasing truth never a lie Eking out a living in this paradise Gimme Johnny Walker, neat, no ice Smile for me Baby I’m here for you […]

Medic! Medic! : Helping the Wounded Live

from the archives July 13, 2006 On the battlefield a fallen soldier will often lay there near death, expecting death, when a comrade will stop and offer comfort and aid. Encouraging and strengthening his fallen comrade simply through comfort, the yell will follow, “Medic! Medic!” as help is sought that will bring the wounded soldier the medical attention that is needed. There are times when death will come too quickly or help will come too […]

Tao Te Ching: About The Way

The Way – cannot be told. The Name – cannot be named. The nameless is the Way of Heaven and Earth. The way, of how life happens, cannot be told. The name, of that which makes life happens, cannot be named. This nameless is The Way of Heaven and Earth; in other words, it is everything imaginable and even then beyond! The named is Matrix of the Myriad Creatures. The named, that which we can […]

Clean Out Your Own Basement | When Things Go Wrong | Change Starts Within

Whenever things aren’t going well in life, it can be observed long after we’ve survived the struggle that all we had to do was make a change we didn’t want to, or were struggling with, or didn’t want to change. As the year of transitions to end a decade of transitions continues, I have at times been perplexed at the trouble climbing the hill. Try as I might, I kept stumbling and falling down. Recently, […]

Lose Yourself to Feel Good

Denial: I have to wonder what this is really all about. Over the decades, as psychology has gone more mainstream, it has infiltrated every aspect of our lives culturally and socially. It’s in our health coverage plans, employee benefits, in the movies, sitcoms, and even more in the advertisements. I’d say they’re having an influence upon our self and group consciousness. Earlier, I caught myself asking a question to seek the opinion of someone else […]

Tweedle-Ant chats to Iman-Ant – Something About Life & Existence

There I was hovering over a busy ant-hill when thought I heard something. I leaned in a little closer to see what it was. You won’t believe it, but I’ll share it anyway. “Do you suppose there is any rhyme or reason to any of this?” Dweedle-Ant posed. “He He He! Of course, Mant! Of course! Just take a look at that cute little heiny and tell me that ain’t no reason. That’s a reason!” […]

Tama Kieves | The Secret to Healing: Feel the Pain

Tama’s Musings The Secret to Healing: Feel the Pain When we are on the path of creating the work and life we love, we will encounter pain. That’s a given. Yes, we will follow our bliss, and then rejection, fear, and confusion will find out where we live. How we deal with the pain will determine our success and joy. But most of don’t love dealing with pain. Recently, I had a fit of insecurity, […]

The Powerful Story: Tragedy or Triumph?

“So, what are you going to do about it?” he asked again. Listening to his friend lamenting his pitiful circumstances, this was the only question that made any sense. Even so, instead of answering the question, the habit was to respond lamely yet again. “My day started off badly, and three years ago that other big thing happened, and now this other thing is about to happen, and I just am in a bad space.” […]
