My Bio
Interiors
Exploring the interior of myself through my readings, meditation, and reflection, has helped to gain some measure of knowledge regarding this life.  I am always amazed as the microscope turns inward, the many roadblocks unconsciously erected in order to avoid knowing myself, seem to pop up--it is only with daily meditation that I'm beginning to recognize them!  Roadblock #1:  projection--how my mind loves to wander back to the external world and reflect what others have done to me!  Rather than examining my own effect on others. . my mind habitually would prefer to analyze their effect on me. . . .This is a difficult maze as this type of road

love
Does anyone know what love truly is?  So many attempts to define it. . .and it is so packaged and charged with sexual connotations, banal remarks, used and abused as a term, love, that is, true love--is the most powerful force on this planet.  True love is the union of souls-- it transcends, unites, eschews separation, and longs for completion.  The intensity of this force is often avoided, and true love can give rise to its opposite--fear.  When in the throes of love, we are caught in the maelstrom of oneness. . .in a society that treasures the individual-- love requests the loss of the ego, in a society that is driven by narcissim---love de

On the positive side, I am holding on to inner truth.. the still silent part of the self that just "knows" and the part that belongs to the spirit within/without , who actually just happens to be resting in my body for the moment.. .
