Lean Into The Deep Pain – A Single Wisdom For 2023

If there was a single piece of wisdom one could pass along to a new generation before they die, it would be to have had the fortitude to cultivate a life absent of the expectations of others. Our lives are each complex with equal amounts of pleasures and pain – if we are lucky to…

Anger Is Energy, So Power Your Growth With It

If we had the choice, most of us would rather not deal with anger – especially when it involves feeling it towards some sort of internal limit or barrier we feel inside ourselves. ‘I’m angry because I can’t manage or accept X, Y, or Z and I’m angry for being angry about that.’ The variations…

The Fair and Fault of Frugality

What often comes to mind when we think of frugality is the act of conserving limited resources. Fair use is planning from experience and foresight in proportion to the common problem in a 1/1 ratio, or acquiring something of value for far less than its worth. Here it makes sense to be frugal. Running out…

When There’s Nothing To Show

The slump hits hard. We all know what the slump is for us. It’s that nagging feeling of knowing we haven’t done something or accomplished something worthwhile. That we haven’t done that vital thing we should have, that we haven’t worked on our life’s task. Whether it’s our art, domestic responsibilities, or a dream we…

A Ladder To Nowhere

Goal, position, tool(s), process. This is the order for success in nearly every pursuit be it personal, professional or spiritual. But this order is harder to get right than one might expect. I often find myself beginning with position, then goal, then tool, which may seem like a good standard initially because the position is…

Early Birds Are Wise Birds

‘The early bird gets the worm.’ Such an under-appreciated metaphor in our modern times. Today we are more motivated by what we think we deserve than by what we are willing to sacrifice to earn our self-respect and affirmation. If we want more in our lives, we must get up early and attend to it.…

Life is War

From the moment of birth, we are expelled from our safety in the warm nourishing darkness, and thrown into the waiting arms of nurturing chaos. This is where the illusions of safe space are shattered, through the violent contentment of our soft skulls being crushed by the birth canal. We come to understand in this…

Psycho-Spiritual Surgery

‘What did I do wrong that caused this misfortune to happen?’, Is a question we all forget to ask from time to time. The art of self-reflection is found in what the world reflects back at us and not what we reflect back at ourselves. This can be illustrated as psycho-spiritual surgery. The ego is…

Lose What You Gain To Gain What You Lose

For all we gain, we must give up something else. Dreams are funny that way. So are lives. Most can agree they want what’s best (don’t we all), but that’s where the idea seems to lose clarity. ‘Best’, is, at best, subjective reasoning with a bias towards only seeing favourable outcomes. To know what’s best,…

Of Sheep And Wolves

The sheep see themselves as peaceful grazers who simply eat all day without worry for anything but each other. They eat and mate and make more sheep who eat more grass. A harmless cycle. The sheep see the wolves as blood-thirsty predators who cull their weaker loved ones and devour them. They watch and wait…
