Jed McKenna’s books

I’m going to come back to Jed McKenna here many times. He blew my mind completely, but it was a journey through hell. I really wasn’t sure if I’d come out of this alive. What saved me was this blog, and my husband explaining what these books mean to me in one sentence. My husband […]

Rewrite your story daily

Think of the most honest thing you can possibly come up with. Write it down. Repeat. That’s it. That’s the whole thing. Jed McKenna calls it Spiritual Autolysis. Many Catholic and Sufi mystics have been working with this kind of process. I told my husband about it today for the first time. “So, kinda like […]

Mind mapping

Staring at a blank page terrifies me. I’m only comfortable writing about things I can place in a larger context, and understand how they relate to everything else. At the same time, I get to understand new concepts mostly through writing and talking with other people. I often have a vague feeling that I know […]

Right back there

One more time I
Came back home

Empty handed

Just a few

Autumn leaves

Acorns chestnuts

But a shadow of the
Old wise forest

All night long

I rearrange them

Just as if some

Certain order

Could bring us both

Right back there

Just by looking

After playing around with it for an hour, I love it a lot already. Looks like the perfect place […]

Journaling is a superpower

If there’s one thing that helped me more than daily blogging, it’s daily journaling. Yes, you read that right. Apart from the daily blog post, on most days I also write privately on paper for 10-30 minutes. On the surface there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the two, but to me it’s an […]

Pictures of the soul

Can you imagine? I have an entire art gallery that fits in my purse. Every single picture in it is incredibly emotional and touching. I love surrounding myself with beautiful objects, and these are not just beautiful, but also allow me learn a lot about myself. These are the best images of Deborah Koff-Chapin, which […]

Humbled

I am
But a seed

What grows out of me
Wasn’t mine
To choose

Entire Universes
Flow through me
From the Source

No more belonging to me
Than a cup
Contains the river

Each time
I get to die a little bit
And surrender

Each time
I am humbled

By my own creation
