We Are All In This Together, So: Unite, Care, and, Yes, Resist and Transform.

Well, how about this, from David Brook’s The Second Mountain:

“The average American has seven jobs over the course of their twenties. A third of recent college graduates are unemployed, underemployed, or making less than $30,000 a year at any given moment. Half feel they have no plan for their life, and nearly half of people in their twenties have had no sexual partner in the last year. These are peak years for alcoholism and drug addiction. People in this life stage move every three years. Forty percent move back in with their parents at least once. …


Happy New Year to the world family! Yes, the happiest of new years to the global family tree. Rooted deep in the annals of history, embedded deep in the ground of our common ancestry, may we continue to recognize each and every other as sacred

Our common ancestry: Before there were family names, there was one roaming mass of animal-humanoid creatures seeking a survival with the barest of Earth-transforming tools. Over time we “developed” and became as we are today, like the One of Taoism, split into the “ten thousand things.” We learned so much that we forgot we are…


Connection

We are entering an age of relation. We are leaving the age of the individualistic, separate self. The self who knows all the answers and can get what he wants through his own will is ending. What I have to offer is only as valuable as my ability to offer it. My ability to offer is based in how well I can connect with others.

Can we speak to others directly? Can we listen fully, without painting thought strokes over the canvas of our partner’s expressive offering? …


It’s happened again. The demon of historical colonial imperialism has made too much noise in my nomadic backpack for me to ignore any longer. *Sigh* Yes, I must sing this song once more.

You see, I am a digital nomad hailing from the United States of America. Glory, glory, glory. I am in Thailand. One week in. Here’s the deal:

In the past 20ish years*, places like Thailand have been remodeled as tourist destinations for Westerners to visit on the cheap. Though I had never been to Asia, I wasn’t worried about diving into the unknown, because I knew that…


Relax…

You know what is the best thing about traveling to a place like Thailand or Mexico? The relaxation. When you leave the big cities like Bangkok and get into rural areas like Khao Sok, which is where I am right now, you can stop to breathe. You may wake up, do your meditation, do your yoga, and then mosey down to the café of the hostel to begin writing. Well, that’s my lifestyle for the present, anyhow.

You see, I am what they call a digital nomad. …


I love dialogues that are honestly interested in the truth. When both parties are sincerely curious about the truth, each person may trust the information arising, and with appropriate timing, share with the other person. When we engage in this way, we enter a cooperative state where the Logos, the higher spirit of truth, is occupying both of us, and we become vessels COMMUNE-icating the truth.

I trust what my partner in truth tells me, and not in an uncritical dynamic, but rather in a way that trusts what they say is exactly what I need to hear. And the…


Ommmmmmmmmmm

Have you ever found yourself stuck in anguish over the fact that your striving just spins yours wheels and spits up mud? Have you struggled with energy, focus, enthusiasm, creativity, and fulfillment? Maybe anxiety, struggle to follow through and share what you got, maybe various forms of self-debasement and self-sabotage? I have too.

I am a creative person, and I know you are too, because you are a human being and by nature we are creative. I have a dream to have my life aligned with the fullest utmost contributions of my creative gifts because that is the most fulfilling…
