Magic is Everywhere

12/17/2020
As the child grew older, its caretakers and teachers pointed and said, that is theirs and this is ours. The child only saw a wooden fence that separated theirs and ours, confused because it all looked the same. As time went on, the pointing now included, this is us and that is them. Again the child, confused, saw them were just like us! We all know this story, we have/are living this story, as more fences, more us and less of them, infiltrated our brain, filling with the fences implanted by...

Encore: Coming Home To Your Body: The Embodied Present Process

11/26/2020
We live in our heads, distracted by its chattering and divided from our deepest intelligence. The source of our modern distress is that we have put a tiny, fragmented portion of our intelligence in charge of our lives – and that portion of our thinking obsesses all day long over problems it can never solve. We have placed the ability to reason on a pedestal without appreciating its severe limitations. Reason offers to control the world around you, but it never can. Nor can it bring into your...
