Destruction, liberation and forgiveness.

How do I begin a post like this one?  Despite numerous attempts over the last few weeks of inactivity on my blog  I have not found a graceful or poetic way to say that I’ve ended my marriage.  Ya, Merry Christmas hey?  There would have been a thousand better times for this tidal force to move me as it did, but it seems I could dam the force no longer. The first I heard of this tidal force was a number of years ago.  Inside of me, though, it began not like the tide that moves me now but like the slow, intermittent drip of a leaky faucet – a.

Silence, Vigil and the Connecticut Shootings.

I wanted to write a post on the Connecticut shootings that reflected some critical thought about the tragedy.  I wanted to respond to some of the reactions and opinions that are spilling out all over social media.  I had wondered what it might look like to offer a spiritual perspective on the shootings, and the abhorrent treatment of virtual reality headset children all over the planet.  I sensed a tirade attempting to make its way in to print that for a few moments felt like my most important offering  to this world of heartbreak.  That tirade has swelled in me a few times over the last few days, and yet.

On Solitude

“Language has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone.  And it has created the word solitude to express the glory of being alone” – Paul Tillich   If you’ve read my last two posts, it’s obvious I’ve been holding some difficult things.  Well, the drum beat has stilled, and the echo leaves me with this… indeed a song of my soul has been beaten womens down jackets out of me. And this is what I heard in the melody… I seek not the end of loneliness but the fullness of solitude.   On the other side of wrenching loneliness, I have found a lonely soul aching for.

On Loneliness

It was years ago, in university, I remember a professor commenting that we come into life alone, go out alone and that no one is ever really able to enter our experiences with us.  His point was that existential loneliness is a fact of human life.  I have not felt the truth of this so clearly as in the last few years.   I have spent many moments in the isolating walls of my house, alone with my child, alone with motherhood, alone with the domestic duties that seem laid upon me by cold and distant societal expectations. cheap nfl jerseys,cheap jerseys,wholesale jerseys from china,I urge the Commissioners to call.

On Happiness

  What is happiness?  I’ve been contemplating this for weeks.  It seems the notion of happiness can have so many meanings, across paradigms as well as within me.  Patanjali spends a great deal of time talking about the nature of “bliss”, the ultimate happiness.  But for him it is lifetimes of work to realize the stillness of being associated with it.  Buddhism is similar.  Happiness is possible only in the cessation of cravings or desire.  And yet for other systems, desire is central to moving our human organism toward meeting our needs.  For me, the pursuit of happiness exists on both levels.   I know that I have a propensity toward.
