i am growing something out of nothing
i am growing wind out of rain
i am growing love out of sin
i am growing conviction out of rejection
i am growing clarity out of the mud
i am growing a palace out of the beggar’s streetcorner
“the last shall be first and the first shall be last”
i am growing sacred hunger out of gluttony
i am growing words and song out of silence
though none of this is guaranteed
there is a sacred thread that is absolute certainty
and while the doubters hold on to their doubt as if it is religion
truth is staring you in the face
day after day
i am growing reason out of poetry
i am growing resurrection out of armageddon
i am growing beauty out of suicide
i am growing ecstatic abandon out of depression
though none of this is guaranteed
the proof is in the putting
and if you stare into this nothingness
what you find will be rock solid
a fire that never goes out
a light that cannot be extinguished
a life that does not end
a diamond that cannot be cut
all that, all that
if you dare
to sink your teeth
into reality

i’ve held a secret in my heart for a month now
i’ve held it in my head and in my hands and in my heart
a secret of plants and stones
a secret of dirt and dangerous life
real life – alive,
and i hold this secret now too
it does have a pulse, i felt its pulse
an open pulse in plain view
a pulse that had nothing to hide
because some secrets are like that
“i may know the word but not say it...
i may love the fruit but not taste it…”

i lied down and through the layers of longing
came to the secret in my heart,
present as it is, and there… for now,
like something that belongs to this place perhaps,
though will always be with you even if i never
tell you this secret

perhaps i will receive this secret as a guest
not as a burden, but as a guest
a guest in my heart, hands, and mind
a sometimes electric guest charged with currents

others said i should make the secret known
but who am i to tell you
what sits in the center of my chest
like an alive thing begging for light?

i think you don’t know what it is…
or perhaps fathomed but did not dare to entertain it...
so i will keep drinking its silence and thrum
its little spark of forgotten longing
its strong pulse of rhythmic uprising
its unknown flowering and end

in the dead of the night that is not dead
when motivation has ceased and there is just being
it is there like a seed
and i am not a gardener
i am a dancer
listening for the signature of its rhythm
watching the pulse of its sting and prayer
moving with life and death
the seen and unseen
the voiced and hidden
the light and the deep succulent untouched ground of darkness.

Your Consciousness is the gateway to all that is: to reality, to presence, to being, to the mystery of Life itself.

California has about one year of water left. Will you ration now?


Given the historic low temperatures and snowfalls that pummeled the eastern U.S. this winter, it might be easy to overlook how devastating California's winter was as well.

a great irrational happiness fills my heart
this is the art of living
no one can make me leave this palace of yes
where light fills every crack & cranny
where the mystery of life sings on without known cause
except the source you yourself have tasted
(have you tasted it?)
i do not know that which gives birth to sun, stars, moon, & trees
to the humming of bees and creation of all things
but it has something to do with profound acceptance and
ruthless explosion in the thunderous canyons of nothingness.
creation is where it's at, babe
not exclusive to any canvas or song
but rather to the corrosive & reckless song of existence itself,
as it breathes in you even,
as it breathes through all you are even,
through everything that lives and dies,
through everything that cries and sighs,
through everything that moans and rages,
through the dance, the thickness of darkness, and dawn
all and all and all,
the consciousness that is god
deems all of this infinity
to be your field of freedom
and at the end of the day
this devoted beating heart will remain

I appreciate & resonate with this message from Marianne Williamson:
"Jobs come and go but a calling is something that you were given the moment you were born. Our real job, our real calling is to be the people that we are capable of being. You can lose a job but you can't lose your calling. And, often people think 'I have to get a job!' as though it's outside yourself. But a real career, when it's seen as a calling, is something that emerges organically from who you are. Your career is not separate from who you are; a career is an extension of who you are. I think it's important to remember that what you're here to do on this earth can't be taken away from you. And the economy of the world is irrelevant to that."

1-hour Dare to Be Present® sessions of service offered, supporting your ability to be at peace with yourself, and to successfully navigate your inner realms & how you relate with your mind, feelings, & body. This can include - if appropriate - guidance in mindfulness & meditation. One of the things I learned from going to Harvard is that my Harvard degree is worth nothing compared to the infinite value of learning to be fully conscious and at peace with oneself. The Dare to Be Present® service is available worldwide -- if you are interested in a free 15-20 minute call to see how Dare to Be Present may be able to assist you, please message me your phone#, location, & good times to reach you.
