- (OR: Magical Genius Arrives….)
Snow day and I say HEY!…
I am here, awake, alive, thinking, breathing, writing now too….
I am new to Boston, and urban environs. But not that new. More than a day or a month now…. a whole year, actually.
I walked after the snow. I was struck by sunset colors and sparkling trees on glass and iron gates and tiny Victorian homes, air crisp and gentle.
I am grateful for a gladness inside… Looking around as if never before on the planet (and why not!), I spy behind the quaint brownstone rows, looking magical as ever, streaks of bright sky. Slushy streets never so much enjoyed – even though cold soaked through to my toes even in these, my fav cushy rubber boots….
Today is the calculated Due Date for my grandbabies, Zion and Zanye, now 27 days from birth, and marks 21 days from new mom Raina’s 35th birthday.
So I decided that today I start another 21 day writing process for deep healing.
Here is the skinny on it:
Addressing seven major chakras, one per day for seven days, times 3.
Write at least 3 pages, or 12 minutes, everyday.
1st week: Forgive yourself for everything to do with each chakra, each day, starting with root.
2nd week: Forgive everyone else in your life and world, same format.
3rd week: Declare your intentions and celebrate balance, same format
I will let you know how it all unfolds.
Here I go.
If you don’t know what cannot be done, you will accomplish great things.

I called up hexagram number #25 – Wu Wang – also known as “Innocence.”
Unchanging, this is what it says:
If you push too hard to be in the world = the unexpected cannot find you. You may be blameless in a situation although you feel guilty. However there is not a lot you can do other than to wait for the situation to right itself.
So we sow and prepare, and become patient with not knowing what is next.
It is time to finish, not start, as the moon in still waning… New moon brings new projects, and new insight.
Completion is power.
If I look around, out my eyes, as if these material things matter, I am lost.
My heart will hurt for the balance of essence along with form. I can only hurt when I am lost in the world of form, including all these ideas and ideals – mental constructs. A nifty prison I can easily keep recreating if I am not vigilant and dedicated to the higher plane…
Oh Great Ones, Highest Spirit Master Teachers, infinite, bountiful Mother of All, mysterious, all-pervasive Matrix of Light, please lift me up above, now. Please keep me on the flow of the river, not drowning in it. Let me surrender and let go of my habits of “believing” in the shape and appearance of things, in so-called “circumstances” – which are always related to a story line. No doubt this story is spoken and repeated inside and out, cheered on by the obsessive, incessant commentary of a chattering monkey mind, as I like to call it – the one providing inevitably painful distractions from true magic, immanent beauty, the ecstasy of knowing Life Force within.
No more. I am set free.
I rest deep, find peace, integrity, and wholeness; strength, ancient wisdom, radical honesty, and quiet nobility. Finding my true nature.
Day breaks with the hush of intense cold air, an atmospheric movement offering deep freeze to the Eastern Seaboard of Turtle Island this fine Winter Moon Day. The house is warm, 528Hz healing music rings sweet and gentle from a common magical device – a dance of bells with an enfolded drone like sweet angel songs, sounds no one can define. Energizing chills run through me as I write and enjoy. The Angels say “you are welcome.”
Perhaps now I shall become lost in my breath, in the moment. I want to know what is within inside this breath. And this breath, too. This one too…
I will. I am. Yes yes yes.
God Bless. All is well. So be it and so it is. Worlds without end. Amen. Amen. Amen.
Peace out. Peace in.
I live a life of moment to moment reflection on the trance that is commonly known as “reality,” or “the world,” or that sort of thing. Labels reveal, and breed, assumptions, it doth seem. We think we know something because we have a label for it.
As a therapist, a role I played very well at times throughout the decades (in between escapades into higher learning, global travel, writing, breakdowns, and a free-spirited, vagabond lifestyle) I grew ever more deeply fascinated by the dance of denial we all play – notably with our self talk and habits.
When we see old friends, sometimes our habits become more obvious. This is a good thing – could free up some disk space.
Today I am in a humble lodge in an unfamiliar, small, Southern, textile-factory-type town. It’s quite cool out; the sun offers those long shadows of winter on this half moon day. The solstice grows near. The trees are bare. Life seems challenging for many who live around here. Cattle graze, fields are plowed, and I am guessing conversations rarely go toward the quest to find true love, self realization, or deep spiritual fulfillment. A Baptist culture abounds. The weather is often quite mild.
I am here to visit and catch up with a man of great dignity and passion, one who is now a growing success as an author. His work-a-day, war-in-the-workplace memoir is filled with true, daring, hair raising, and tender stories which may bring forth a full spectrum of emotions. He writes with a rich, lyrical, addicting style.
His true colors are shining, and I get to see it.
I respect this gentleman deeply; a thirty year friendship is taking a new tac and setting sail again. When people know you from back then, sometimes there is much to build upon when your new projects are shared and you trust one another enough to delight in this as well as to speak up about what’s real, and very personal, with bold intensity.
He is my friend Phil Cohen. His wild, infectious laugh comes easy. His sleep often does not. His love flows like your favorite poet at their very best. His muscle-up car might need to get buffed. He likes healthy food, yet does little more than giggle about the fact he does not know how to steam vegetables. Today, its showtime for Phil once again – he is off performing his brilliant Ninja powers with sharp wit before government bodies and corporate thugs. He does this with a grace such that everyone who witnesses is left in awe. No choice about it.
Good to be here.
Love always to you, My Dear.
Over and Out for Now.

Good morning and goodness be, and for goodness may we awaken and salute within each other, each moment, the very ultimate fullness of life. Nothing less.

“Approach” Hexagram 19 – no changing lines
(two unbroken lines at the base, four broken above)
“When you place yourself in a position to help another, you will discover your greater capabilities.”
When you rise each day like spring = everyday is a flowering. This is a fortunate hexagram to receive with no lines changing. The message is that Approach is more than a momentary event for you. Your abilities and compassion have already led you into the service of others. There is an eternal flow of abundance at your disposal. Your positive attitude makes every day feel like spring. The only warning Approach offers is when you are not being approachable. Perhaps you have cut yourself off from communication in some way? A high level of focus is placed on reaching out to someone. If that is not an option or contact isn’t reciprocated then the message of quickening suggests allowing events to unfold naturally, like seeds beneath the earth at Springtime. Perhaps a period of waiting for Approach has allowed you to cultivate talent or a type of ‘inexhaustible teaching’ that puts you at service to others. Your day will come. Just keep being patient, present and willing to do what you can to nurture others.

A day of peace inside
All is well. I breathe deep. I trust here now the power within my breathe, within the essence of life.
I am the space inside holding all that is, all that I am, and all that seems to be outside me, in arms of love, nurturance, warmth…in perfection without effort. One breath at a time.
There is no other time to open my heart. I open now. I soften all my limbs and allow the breath to enter without resistance.
I am that I am the peace that lies in trust. In Faith. In the willingness to not know and stay present anyway.
With my full heart beaming I greet all beings, all happenings, with awareness, grace, appreciation, respect, and joy.
I give all that I most deeply wish to receive: loving kindness, welcoming words, trusting thoughts, constant celebrations of the endless wisdom within all beings, with gratitude at every turn – every shift in the day and season, and every change of landscape if I travel.
So Be it and so it is. Now and Forever. Worlds Without end. Amen Amen Amen

I sometimes help take care of my mother, who needs help with daily tasks as her health is a challenge, fighting cancer. However, she is intermittently very angry and overall difficult to get along with, yelling and blaming and uncooperative. I feel caught in a vicious cycle when relating to her. I am angry too, and bitter, it is so difficult to take her fits and harsh words. How can I move past this? – J.M.”
Dear J. M.,
With open eyes, soften your gaze, as if to cross your eyes slightly, and look out just in front of you. Focus on your exhale, noticing your breath, only, as best you can, for a few minutes. Choose to be present for yourself within, and blow out all outer influences. Then, if you can, I recommend doing Wayne Cook’s posture, and other energy medicine routines for stress, as offered in Eden Energy Medicine videos free online.
Once you do the above meditation and energy medicines for yourself, then do again while thinking of your mother. Breathe and notice your bodily feelings as you visualize her, and consciously choose to be present for your thoughts and feelings, while attaching to none – just keep breathing. Invite yourself to expand and be bigger than all the thoughts and feelings.
Notice how she looks to you in your imagination. When you are ready, speak to her within, and do so as if you had an infinite well of compassion inside to offer, to both her and to yourself. Imagine the conversation going JUST the way you would most like it to go. Take as much time as needed to get this going in the direction that feels good.
If you are determined to be true to your spirit, you need not use anger to protect yourself, this is an imbalance in the energies.
Spend a little time each day for three days actively choosing how you want each interaction to go when you relate to her. Relax and allow the truth of your invincibility to surface as you relate to her in spirit, in your imagination, in conversation.
Trust that you create peaceful interactions and realign with yourself if you honor a balanced choreography of energy, so to speak. This is when you: determine with your spirit, give with the tenderness of your emotions, receive with your mind, and hold and transform with your body. Loving kindness can prevail inside, and out.
I am happy to help more specifically, and deeper, with sessions by phone if you like.
Let me know how it goes!

One morning, the sun shines differently.
Birds, crickets chatter, a cold wind dances… and yet
everything is new – something inside is – awake…
been long lost in dream – a dream ship like planet …
made of – what? Star dust. space. Nothing?
Take me all, awake in this moment. I see the sunrise through the snow and wind.
I am that, I am. I am the wind, the water, the wondering one, slumbering one,
oddly longing…. living and yet – not living, until
Because now I am awake.
