SAMHAIN: Musings on Pain and Death–A Personal Journey

  Calm as you please, my mother set an incisor and a canine on the Formica table top. The teeth were pearly white, perfectly shaped and free of decay. She pointed to the incisor. “This came out at the doctor’s office while you were on the phone.” She pointed to the canine. “This came out last week. I startedContinue reading “SAMHAIN: Musings on Pain and Death–A Personal Journey”

Why White Men Might Be Pissed Off

I’m just taking a stab in the dark here, but I think I might know why white men might be pissed off—at EVERYBODY, including other white men. Imagine this scenario: You are told that you are the root of all that is evil in the world—sexual objectification, racism, oppression, economic inequality, and every other –ism,Continue reading “Why White Men Might Be Pissed Off”

My Sweet Shadow, To You I Look No More

I had talked about metal music and recalling unpleasant memories in an earlier post. Wouldn’t you know it, I had the most vivid, controlled recall of my life a few days ago. I was alone, almost as if the part of my mind that controlled access to those memories had read the post, and IContinue reading “My Sweet Shadow, To You I Look No More”

From The Jerk to A TOOL

“A couple of people have asked me about my ‘complicated relationship’ status. I just want you all to know that I’m in a relationship with me. It’s complicated, definitely, but I’m the only one who has to put up with my crap <laughs>.” ~my FaceBook status on January 21, 2014. The explanation behind my statusContinue reading “From The Jerk to A TOOL”

An Open Letter to A Creep

Dear Creepy Guy at the Bar: I’m thinking you might be a nice person. I’m thinking your mother loves you. Very much. But somewhere along the line she failed to teach you how to approach people. Or maybe it was an oversight on your father’s part. I speculate equitably. Since the fine art of conversation,Continue reading “An Open Letter to A Creep”

Show Me Your Hub, Baby

Things to be grateful for this week: I had a serious breakthrough in how I can be more aligned with the Center of the Tree of Life known in Qabala as Tifareth (aka the Christ Consciousness). Tifareth is the Sun/Son, the Center, and is known as Beauty or Harmony. This sphere rests in the centerContinue reading “Show Me Your Hub, Baby”

Written in the Stars

It’s supposed to get even more interesting on November 3, 2013 with the New Moon eclipse and Scorpio and Mercury Retrograde getting all comfy-cozy in the 12th quadrant (house) of the sky. Karma Brewing, that’s how Urania’s Well describes it and she’s saying this New Moon eclipse energy went into effect approximately 30 days beforeContinue reading “Written in the Stars”

Read the Warning Label

I’ve reached the point where I’ve decided that labels are powerful. I’m not saying they are fair but one must reckon with them or fall victim to them. In our world of illusion, to make sense of our experiences, we must categorize and in this we are all guilty of delusion. A state of illuminationContinue reading “Read the Warning Label”
