Wellbeing and Wealth

Wellbeing and Wealth

September 15, 2021

Our well being is inseparable from the well being of the world. That is not to say that if something bad happens somewhere far away that something bad will happen to you as well, it is to say that when we lose something beautiful, we also lose something within ourselves.

Glimpses of Possibility: The Pain and Power

Glimpses of Possibility: The Pain and Power

August 29, 2020

The story reveals itself like this gigantic angelic being coming through the fog and sometimes the fog clears just enough to see one facet of it's wing, and it's so beautiful that if you saw the whole thing, you would have to turn away. Because it's painful to see what could be, something that beautiful, and to know that the world is so far from that.

But once you've seen a possible future, you know it's real, and you know it can happen. All you need to know is "what's the next step?"

The Gift of Loss

The Gift of Loss

August 8, 2020

The gifts the universe give often take the form of something that looks really bad going into it. Cancer, divorce, a collapse. A collapse of both outward circumstances, but also your identity. And that emptiness is where something new can come in.

I’m 28 and I’m Confused About Having Kids. Why?

August 3, 2020

There could be a lot of things going into that. Not wanting to bring kids into the world right now, ideologies about population overshoot, influence of the cultural devaluation of raising a family. I think in this area the reasons people give themselves are not the real reasons.
