Tribute to Ignorance & Darkness

Searching the finite threads of mortality

for some meaning or pattern in the

Infinites dance of thoughtless neutrality.

Having climbed the fast inconscient realms

of supreme ignorance and having fallen

face down in the web of duality, He finally

suckles the sweet and pregnant nothingness

that is here when all else is gone.

I Am That I Am!

Every experience, a golden rung on

the ladder of accension, each a blessing

above the lie of right and wrong.

The gutter births a king, a saint, a prophet

who’s heart knows all, who’s mind is empty,

who’s lips are sealed.

The great pretender glimpses the shadowy

outlines of his own sweet lie, but trembles not

in the face of Ego’s seeming triumph.

For he knows beyond knowing that circles

are not circles unless complete, through

the gift of dark ignorance, degredation,

utter humilition and annhilation.

I Am That I AM.

The Meaning of 108

I know I just posted a blog yesterday, but Deepak’s 108 Ways to Attain Divine Consciousness post inspired me to share some of Joseph Campbell’s insights on this enigmatic star of all things numerological. Fans of the television show, LOST, should enjoy this; there’s more on that at the end of this post…

The excerpts below are all from one of the last books Joseph Campbell wrote in his life and one of my all-time favorites, The Inner Reaches of Outer Space: Metaphor as Myth and as Religion; Chapter 1, Cosmology and the Mythic Imagination:


I had put spirituality on the back-burner for the past 10 years. It wasn’t hard to do. I was busy with studying medicine, completing residency and fellowship training, getting married, etc. At the completion of all my training, came the question “What now?” I felt like I

Find the Power to Heal Yourself

As a little girl, I was always able to see the good in horrible situations. No one showed me how to do this, but I chose to be this way — it was how my soul moved in the world. Even when I was dealing with physical abuse, as well as a lack of love in my home, living in fear as a child I was able to discover my creative/spiritual outlets outside while playing in nature.

The Artist as Storyteller

This is the second post in a series addressing the need I believe our species and this planet have for creative people to bring back the spirit of sacred service to the arts. The previous post, The Artist as Mystic, promoted the idea that the creative community possesses the power not simply to render an image of a

Altered State of Mind

There are many altered states of mind, your perception of your reality is one of them.

Looking at a gentlemen in a suit standing at the lights, extremely well presented you:

  1. See him as successful and happy with his life.
  2. A very powerful man possibly a manager or supervisor or even a CEO.
  3. You want to be like him.
  4. He must have a nice apartment/house.
  5. The money must be good.

Are any of these things relevant in your live.

  1. Are you happy?
  2. Do you want to be in a power position?
  3. Do you really?
  4. You have enough don’t you?
  5. Money? You have food do you not?

Why do you want these things?

Are these things your ego talking or do you truly desire what he has?

  1. Hes been unemployed for six months.
  2. Hes going for a job interview.
  3. He lives with a couple of his mates.
  4. He borrowed the suit form one of his mates.
  5. Hes going for a job a junior assistant. earning less than you.

The power of the mind is very deceiving, you may think you know what
you want but are you positve your mind is not playing tricks on you.

Change your thought change your future.
