Reciprocity is an amazing, beautiful and profoundly healing experience. I suppose most of us have some kind of idea about what this term means, along with an inner knowing that we'd really 'like some.' As I have wandered through life I've noticed the great (and sad) extent to which reciprocity is desired, yet rarely found. Over the years, I have helped host a number of retreats for HSPs ( ...

I've been away from this little 'oasis' for a while. Truth be known, I really like the TruJournal and Token Rock communities... although I do sometimes wish they were a little more integrated into the broader social media stream. 'Private' is good, but private is also a way to 'not be seen.' And not being seen usually results in obscurity or even a slow death, when you're a web community. But ...

I write, every morning. I write longhand in a paper journal, using a fountain pen. There's something very 'intimate' about writing by hand, which is quite lost when you sit and peck away at the keys on a keyboard. Science even agrees... we use a different part of our brains to form letters, as opposed to when we type. The other day-- after I'd watched a rather turbulent discussion unfold in ...

John Lennon once said: 'Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.' This quote has been running through my head this afternoon, as I have busied myself with what Sarah and I have been calling 'getting back to square one.' The past 18 months have felt a bit like a major journey across a turbulent ocean. You make a plan, you get maps, you get prepared, you stock supplies ...

Recently, I have been working quite intensively with one of my Guides, working towards healing some-- literally-- 'gaps' in my sense of self; gaps I have been truly ignorant about. At the same time, I have been reading 'The Undervalued Self,' a new book by Dr. Elaine Aron, a research psychologist who originally coined the term 'Highly Sensitive Person,' or HSP. The synchronicities between the sugg ...

I am a beach comber. I spend long hours walking (mostly) in solitude, as a result of which I also spend long hours in quiet contemplation. On some level, it is an almost monastic life... I have certainly come to see that it is deeply spiritual, even if it doesn't 'look like' the type of existence most people would regard as 'the spiritual life.' As I wander with the sound of surf and water b ...

How often do we find ourselves enthusiastically starting some new venture, project or friendship, only to have it 'fade away' within a very short time? As I sometimes (and perhaps too often) do, I was surfing the web a bit, this morning. And I noticed how many blogs and web sites are a 'hive of activity' for a few weeks and months, and then.... nothing. I kept noticing all these 'abandoned p ...

I went for a walk in the sunshine, today. It's often dark and gray, here in the northcountry. Most people I talk to think of Port Townsend as 'the west coast,' without realizing how far north we are, here. I pulled out a map and traced a finger across the country... further north than Duluth, MN... hundreds of miles further north than Chicago, IL or Cleveland, OH... further north than the north ...

Following a series of minor epiphanies and reminders yesterday, I have been thinking about the connection between listening, and Love. Most people-- if asked-- will assure you that they are 'good listeners.' It's a bit like 'a sense of humor;' almost everybody feels that theirs is ABOVE average. What is listening, REALLY? HOW do you listen? Back when I was in college-- as part of a discussio ...

I have been reflecting on 'strength' this week, in response to Sarah's prompt in the 'Your Soul's Plan' group. It's hard for me to contemplate the meaning of strength in my life without recalling the question one of my Teachers once posed: 'Which is more powerful: a giant Caterpillar earthmover, or a laptop computer?' Strength, for me, seems both relative and situational. As much as anyt ...

Is life a gift?
By: Storey
A Buddhist friend of mine told me the other day that he does not believe in gifts because there is no giver and no receiver.... Therefore no gifts are possible so he does not acknowledge it when you g...
