Fruitful, Organic, Cage-Free Choices

Stop reading now!

Or continue.  It’s your choice!

OK here’s the deal.  Do it or don’t do it.

What’s “It?”

“It” is the fulcrum of your decision making –  It is the balance point in the “should I do this or that” thought process.  I think people forget that there is always another choice.  It’s part of our power as humans.  Not all choices however yield better outcomes.  Honestly, some choices just suck!  This article isn’t about how to make better choices, it’s about knowing we have them in general.

Are You Black, White or Bridge?

Between two poles of thought lies a refuge* from ego. Think of this as a bridge separating two personally identified ideas, if you will. Some people prefer to sit on either side and not seek refuge on the bridge. Where do you stand? Continue reading Are You Black, White or Bridge?

Does spirituality have gender roles?

BY: MICHAEL LEWIS

Luckily, it seems that embracing our spiritual being has become much more acceptable in society. It doesn’t seem to be something as taboo as it once was. For the first time in a long time, I think the inhabitants of our earth are beginning to realize that there is something else in this world that isn’t obvious. I am not talking about life on other planets, a man or woman named God who lives in the sky, or an invisible spirit – nor am I ruling them out. However, I do believe that the entity that we are realizing is our own essence which some call spirit, God, inner peace, consciousness, soul, what have you.

We are finally starting to look inwards and ask the man in the mirror if he is satisfied with his life.

Spiritual Bullies

 No, you won’t get a black eye, or end up in the principal’s office if you are met with one of them, but you may leave feeling confused, judged, “less smarter,” and feel like an emotionally-filled hybrid of rage meets W.T.F.?!  This is what happens when you are blind-sided by a spiritually bully.  They are the ones who believe their spirituality is soooooo much better than yours and that their “vegetarianism strips away layers of psychological and spiritual debris layer by layer, more efficiently than your nut based Paleolithic diet, which will probably lead to your death from a mystical nut infection.”  The conversation, if you can call it that, is usually one sided, spoken in code as you saw above and completely divisive.  It will leave your head spinning and further questioning your intelligence, because the language is flagrantly abolished by shrapnel of past bilayers of emotionally charged ionic fragments which have found its way into our life script virtually taking over our industry-loving, greed based mainframe called the mind…get it?!

Now, I know what you must be thinking – I sound like Continue reading Spiritual Bullies

Did you really Just say that?

BY: MICHAEL LEWIS

Platitudes are defined as a remark or statement, especially one with a moral content, that has been used too often to be interesting or thoughtful.  For example: “The grass is always greener…”

How many times have you shared a very intimate thought, secret or tough time with someone and they answer you with a hollowed-out thoughtless rote  phrase such as that?  Why do people say these things?  What good is going to come from it?  Is there a bit of truth in them?  Do they help you feel better?  Are they all thoughtless?  What do you think?

Let’s go through a list of some favorites in response to an intimate thought. Continue reading Did you really Just say that?
