Was the beauty created by desperate Ego grabs at order or Heart creation into chaos? We get to choose the energy, which makes all the difference! (Photo by Jan Canty on Unsplash)

What Can We Learn from Chaos? How about Ourselves?

Chaos offers creators opportunities, joys, adventures, and…well, you determine anything else it offers. Ego wants to grab hold of what it perceives as an order that prevents change, which is a threat to Ego…


You get to create the beauty that chaos allows. What is yours? (Photo by Jené Stephaniuk on Unsplash)

Let’s think about chaos. That’s almost an oxymoron, for thinking implies logical patterns of analysis that allow us, perhaps, to draw conclusions, make inferences, and a whole host of human brain activity.

Chaos, however, says nobody really knows what’s going to happen, and that implies confusion; however, that is not…


Not my rock, but it’s about this color! (Photo by Austin Neill on Unsplash)

We come to this plane of existence to experience beauties, joys, wonders, magic, and a plethora of other amazing explorations and discoveries on Mother Earth.

We do so because we are Spirit incarnate, spirits with human bodies. As such, we intend to enjoy the physical part of our co-creation, which…


Someones somewheres decided that April would be National Poetry Month and the month for the celebration of Mother Earth. Great!

I believe and feel this is a fitting month for both. I have written posts on Medium in the past under the banner of both of those topics.

Now, though…


Not Watson and Crick, but these scientists undoubtedly use their discoveries at the National Cancer Institute. Notice the spiral in the background! (Photo by National Cancer Institute on Unsplash)

(Know Yourself)

Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) — amazing coding of life.

Before Watson and Crick discovered the double helix strands of

Life (1953), we existed. We required no

Knowledge of the specifics and complex chemistry of

Life in order to live, nor did we require it

To Know,

To Know our common

Heritage…


What shadow selves do we wish to love into the light of peace? (Photo by Candice Seplow on Unsplash)

Many forms of peace exist. Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote that White moderates, who should have been pro-civil rights, seemed to favor “a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice” (King 9–10).

Peace may be either active or inactive…


It doesn’t have to be like this. Wake up! (See pic below!) (Photo by Alexey Fedenkov on Unsplash)

From my childhood through my teen years, my wise and sometimes philosophical mother told me a number of times to follow the dictates of my heart. I suppose I should value that above all else; however, this society forces values that are the egoic status quo, the norm. The norm…

Listen Closely!

Screams. Primal responses expressing deep feelings. They should be heard. They should be tended.

I think of a carful of friends, laughing, yelling over each other, as they head towards a sharp curve, beyond which a bridge has been washed out. A couple who just escaped the deadly plunge stands…


How many planets do you see? (Photo by Greg Rakozy on Unsplash)

Mother Earth is a planet that seems unique, yet speculation abounds concerning the infinite possibilities that other planets similar to Earth exist in other solar systems composed of billions of stars in unknown galaxies.

We do not need to go that far to know these speculations hold true. Well, in…


Darkness, Light, and the Christmas Star!

Not the conjunction, but you get the point! (Photo by Dave Hoefler on Unsplash)

The winter solstice holds the longest night of the year. From here on out, the daylight time increases. Leading up to this, the darkness has increased. This is simple astronomical fact.

As the Romantic writers and others have shown our species throughout history, we may consider the order of nature…
