Daily Meds: Death

People go through many deaths in a week. Changes and the dissolution of situations are like deaths.

You can give anything you do or say aContinue reading “Daily Meds: Mantra”

Daily Meds: Physical

When one is on this journey of discovery and wisdom, it can be difficult to catch every disguise of the ego. It has had many years of practice at hiding in plain sight.

AM I an Addict?

The short answer is yes. I know you may have had a strong reaction to that answer. “No way! I don’t even take drugs!” You may have just had a similar thought pop up, but if you experienced a negative emotional reaction to what I just wrote then that is the problem I am talkingContinue reading “AM I an Addict?”
