Reflections on incomplete life lessons

These are my thoughts in flux. Not pretty post-lesson platitudes. No airbrushing or after-effects. Just the experiences I'm having, the philosophies I'm exploring, the ideas I'm testing, in real time as they happen. A whole lot of mind changing. Some struggle. Some growth. But ultimately an attempt at deep connection through creative dialogue with you.

The Cum Up – How You Lose Her…

For those of us committed to living our best lives, who believe in keeping shit positive not by way of cognitive dissonance; but really coming to terms with the negativity of a self-perpetuated fear based reality – that is, our own poverty of mind, self-doubt, envy, falsity, distrust etc. Those of us who know the…

Pussy Power – An Emptying

Pussy Power – An Emptying

I was luxuriating and meditating in the bath the other day and it came to me that I have been on a journey of celibacy rather than sexlessness. That I should not resist it because my relationship to myself, my body, and my sexuality has been transformed. You know I love to talk about my…

Coming to Terms: The Use of Gender in Spiritual & Esoteric Communities

Coming to Terms: The Use of Gender in Spiritual & Esoteric Communities

When the Squat Challenge Doesn’t Lift Your Spirits…

It had been a long and peculiar day. Some frustrations, but still, a number of creative wins. I was somewhere between weary and expectant as I walked around my room switching off my fairy lights: The white hearts hanging over my closet; the paper lanterns around my rocking chair; the glowing roses dangling next to…
