    Pleasure

    Ever since I was young I was never afraid to please myself. I think so many woman fear touching themselves. In a sexless marriage I'm thankful I at least have that. Woman need to discover where they want to be touched, how they want to be touched. They have to know what makes...

    Why Do You Live?

    We live... for finding the answer. In every, different, context, we discover more about ourselves... and the more we understand about how we function, the more mysterious it is, why we did the things we did... luck and favor help us along, and we learn more about what we can do...

    We so often define ourselves by what we have

    been through. But we forget that we are not our experiences. You are not that girl that got raped. You are not that guy that got abused. You are not that person that was hurt. You're experiences have gotten you to today--but they are not You. You are You. And when you find...

    Did you know that even the love of your life

    cannot love you the way you can? There is something exhilarating and empowering when one falls in love with the true essence of who they are. You are not a teacher. A daughter. A husband. A friend. These are all labels. If you are a daughter to your mother and a wife to your...

    We far too often forget about the self.

    We get wrapped up in going to work and maintaining our daily routines. Believing our experiences define us. Giving in to our minds convincing ourselves freedom doesn't exist. And in it all--we forget about the Self. Perhaps you have forgotten who the true Self is. Self is not...

    Forgiveness

    You know when you have a hard time accepting you've done something stupid? When you know you've done something wrong but don't know how to fix it? When you feel hopeless and defeated because you know you messed up? So what do you do next? What now? Now you forgive your Self. Now...

    How sweet it is to be loved by my Self.

    Real love. The kind of love that is unconditional. The kind of love they write songs and poems about. The kind of love from Disney movies. The kind of love you dream about as a child. I had to remind my Self that I am the love of my life. In doing so, I found the love of my life...

    I'm working on this right now.

    It's so much easier to figure out what you don't want than what you do. And I don't have a clue. I don't want to spend my life making other people rich at the expense of everyone else. I don't want to be destitute my whole life. I don't want my daughter to grow up without a dad...

    There are so many aspects to self discovery. Your mind or your body. Your prospects or failures. Your sensuality or reaction. So many aspects involved!

    Sometimes when we feel defeated,

    we surrender. Not to anything other than our mind. But our mind can play tricks on us, this much we know. Remember that you are not your mind. You are not your body. You are not the action of taking breath, you are breath. You are Source. If Source surrenders, Source surrenders...
