"The mirror of the soul cannot reflect both earth and heaven; and the one vanishes from its surface, as the other is glassed upon its deep."

I am Phaethon, son of Helios and in Phoebes car I fared. And though greatly I failed more greatly I dared.

    I Feel There Is Some Exquisite Beauty In Sorrow
    Someone asked "how do you deal with stress?" And I answered, I allow my heart to fold in on itself like a black hole and when I feel myself falling I DIVE. And as I pass through the bottom of the abyss I start to fear death but when I hit the ground I realize it was an illusion all along. I never lived because all of life is a dream. Then from the ashes I rise again and Zeus places my chess piece back on the board, I put another quarter in the machine and player one enters the game again. But if I love the sorrow and the pain of life every bit as much as the light and the love, does that make me a bad person?… [more]

    Falling in love with the moon
    Through out my whole life I have been brushed from time to time by an unseen power in my soul. It surfaces and resurfaces each time with a new face, wanting to be seen, wanting to know itself. For years I was so consumed with knowing "me" that I never took the time to know this "deeper" current that breathed life into my art, my heart, my creativity, my soul. This force can be such a tender submissive stream of energy if acknowledged and given a focus, an outlet, but many times in my life I held it back unknowingly and the dam would break. Such shattering, such pain we cause ourselves. Slowly I have come to know this current for what it is, feminine in nature and submissive, deeply submissiv… [more]

    Whispering wind and falling leaves
    I met an angel who resurrected my heart from the dead stone of space and mended my broken wings. She was artist and muse who sought a muse of her own. I had never been loved selflessly in such a way in all my life before I met her, her love was a universal love for all beings, no selfish attachments or desires of her own. Love was forbidden for me. She sang me back into life. I wished to fulfill her desire for a muse and so I spread the wings she gave me and called a chorus of angels to sing by my side. I spoke in the language of metaphor and myth and she was not well grounded enough to sustain the archetypal forces I drew down to light her up from within. She already walked with her feet to… [more]

  • Autobiography in Five Short Chapters

    Posted on: February 28th, 2013 at 3:06PM

     Chapter 1 I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost… I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. It takes forever to find a way out. Chapter 2 I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend that I don’t see it. I fall in again. I can’t believe I am in this same place. But, it isn’t my fault. It still takes a long time to get out. Chapter 3 I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it is there. I still fall in … it’s a habit … but, my eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately. Chapter 4 I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it. … [more]

    Posted on: November 27th, 2012 at 5:41PM

    A long long time ago in a blog far far away... I posted these meditations for a friend and by request I resurrect them here for those interested. My school of thought is a blend between the teachings of two Masters of the Order. Rudolf Steiner and my beloved teacher to whom I consider myself an eternal apprentice, Joseph Campbell. I have had the pleasure in this day and age to study the teachings of enlightenment passed down from all ages and many cultures and the pure and honest intention of these two men to uplift mankind and help us learn to speak the language of the soul has given me the tools to appreciate the world as it is today. If you wish to attain a complete understanding of the f… [more]


  • Illumination and developing your spiritual perception 101

    Posted on: January 6th, 2013 at 11:48PM

    More passages from Rudolf Steiner's How to Know HIgher Worlds for my fellow classmen.Illumination The stage of illumination starts from very simple processes. Here, too, as in the stage of preparation, it is a matter of developing and awakening certain feelings and thoughts latent in every one of us. Anyone who focuses on these simple processes with persistence, rigor, and complete patience will be led to a perception of the inner manifestations of light.   We begin by examining different natural objects in a particular way: for example, a transparent, beautifully shaped stone (a crystal), a plant, and an animal. First, we try to direct our whole attention to comparing a stone and an animal.… [more]
