My life completely turned around when I stopped repeating words that I learned before integrating the teaching. For example, when I learned some new spiritual “truth” I would start sharing it and telling myself how much farther down the path I’d gotten. I see this all time (especially on Social Media) where people who I know are suffering, judging, hurting, and hating are sharing spiritual stuff as if they are gurus. I’ve done it myself.
Part of the reason for doing this is because of one of the most prevalent spiritual teachings: Your Words Become Your Reality. For the pre-enlightened that translates as, “If I say it often enough, it will become true.”
Unfortunately, this is only a partial truth. … Read the rest
Is the Law of Attraction/Manifesting not working for you? Would you like to know why?

So the observation that triggered this is rant actually one I’ve posted about on Facebook several times in the last few years: objectification in the name of spirituality, and conversely the avoidance of profound spiritual moments for the sake of superficiality.
Specifically all those memes of pretty, skinny white women in yoga poses or out in a field with some cool new-agey … Read the rest
I know… I’ve been quiet lately. I’ve been going internal and working on new things, mostly myself. And for the most part, I’ve been failing miserably.
Last week, in the marvelous way the Universe works, I was looking for a birthday present for my teenage nephew and came across a book called No Summit Out of Sight, a true story about a 13 year old kid who climbed the 8 highest peaks in the world. I bought a copy for myself as well.
I’m 51 years old, and aside from a truly fantastic relationship with my Bohemian Soulmate, I have absolutely nothing to show for my life. I eek out a living working a job that takes a … Read the rest
