Heeding the Call

We are all called, in different ways, towards what our souls most need to grow. Sometimes it’s a calling that takes us on a path towards our own destruction, only to be born again like the phoenix from the ashes. If it doesn’t destroy us in the pursuit of it, it may well destroy us through its denial. We know, though, when it absolutely cannot be ignored. It’s as if everything else falls away into a fog of insignificance, things we used to enjoy become like fading memories. The call gets louder, stronger and wilder. It latches onto our anger and our grief and rides them like wild ponies. ‘Hear me!’ it cries in the night when sleep eludes us. ‘Heed me!’ it screams when Continue reading Heeding the Call

Freedom as a Natural State of Being

It’s been a while since I posted here, and it’s still not entirely clear what’s happening. I know there are some deep, tectonic plate-type changes going on, and I’ve felt the shifts taking place on multiple levels of my being.

Back in December I was given the insight that this year Continue reading Freedom as a Natural State of Being

Living in The Field of Dreams

The film ‘Field of Dreams,’ based on the novel ‘Shoeless Joe,’ by WP Kinsella, offers some seriously yummy food for thought.

On closer inspection, though, it’s full of hope, trust and enchantment that offers a beautiful alternative to the fear-based reality in which so many of us live. And it is completely within the realm of possibility if we choose to make it a part of our reality/belief systems. There’s all kinds of ‘practical’ wisdom that would tell Continue reading Living in The Field of Dreams

Life Lessons from the Full Monty

If you haven’t seen The Full Monty, it’s a 1997 film about a bunch of unemployed guys in the North of England who decide that for one night, they’ll bare all to earn some quick cash. It’s a funny, and in many ways touching film about the personal, inner journeys each man takes on the way to full frontal, public nudity. Here’s a short clip of scenes from the film: There are so many ways we can learn life lessons, and at first glance this may not be the most obvious place to look. Even seemingly light-hearted films like this have as much to teach us any book written by the biggest name author. It’s just a matter of stepping back from the story of Continue reading Life Lessons from the Full Monty
