I’m no scientist or nothing like that
But damn girl
You are just
A perfect
Arrangement of atoms and molecules and all those little things that make life as we know it do what we do
And it’s easy
No sweat off your back
What I’m trying to say is gracias
For your perfect construction of all the little things

The Empowered Woman

She moves through the world
with a sense of confidence and grace.
Her once reckless spirit now tempered by wisdom.
Quietly, yet firmly, she speaks her truth without doubt or hesitation
and the life she leads is of her own creation.

She now understands what it means to live and let live.
How much to ask for herself and how much to give.
She has a strong, yet generous heart
and the inner beauty she emanates truly sets her apart.
Like the mythical Phoenix,
she has risen from the ashes and soared to a new plane of existence,
unfettered by the things that once that posed such resistance.

Her senses now heightened, she sees everything so clearly.
She hears the wind rustling through the trees;
beckoning her to live the dreams she holds so dearly.
She feels the softness of her hands
and muses at the strength that they possess.
Her needs and desires she has learned to express.
She has tasted the bitter and savored the sweet fruits of life,
overcome adversity and pushed past heartache and strife.

And the one thing she never understood,
she now knows to be true,
it all begins and ends with you.

When The Stone Is Pushed Back

What will be left of us?

All things here and now say nothing ever dies

sand and scripture transformation is all there is

From then to now

Religion is for those who don’t want hell-

Spirituality is for those who’ve been there.

When the stone is pushed back what will be left of us

for they know exactly what they do

and what they do I will say yes to

because you know 

like I know

We are NOT of THIS World

Not then

not now…

When the stone is pushed back

It will be I

Learned and grown

wiser then before


the courage to keep growing

the will to keep going


Unlike yesterday

and unlike tomorrow


You had to see this coming

We are growing

We are growing during a time of spiritual uncertainty. There are some unexpected positive effects of wild fires. New trees have the opportunity to grow after fire destroys larger trees that would have overshadowed their development. Often a stronger, healthier forest builds up over time. In much the same way, our fledgling souls are taking root while many gross and subtle thought forms are gladly diminishing.

There is an Eden

There is an Eden
for the large
There is an Eden
for the brave

let us rub our joy on you

I chew on bones
You eat meat

We is the language of god
We is the Road map to riches
We is The Garden of Life

we is the happiest people you will ever know
let us rub our joy on you

the Biology of being seen

Sit and be still
I got tugging to do

Foolish boy,
Our tears never made it right
Brother don’t cry no more
Stay out of your mind
The Past is set in stone
Should you seek to find the truth
To see
I’ll be by your side
Just ask
Speak up
Before you go be a sown up story teller
Wake up
Before you go having nightmares

Silly boy
Let’s make it right

let me tell you about the thousand ways our love assassinates everything not associated with the finer emotions of the heart.
It gives faculty to reason, strengthens the imagination, ensures self-reliance, injects Enthusiasm and initiative, certainty of purpose, encourages charm and control, Masters persistence and willpower, turns us into everything, and invite success in every conceivable form imaginable.
Wakes us up to the obvious truth that we live in a world of overabundance of everything the heart could desire. With nothing standing between us and our desires. Nothing between us and knowing. Nothing
