I Know The Truth

I Know The Truth

I try to make meaning of the relatively small time I enjoy walking on top of this earth instead of being buried beneath it. The poet Marina Tsvetayeva speaks to this perfectly when she says in her poem, I Know The Truth: I know the truth – give up all other truths! No need for […]

The “H” Word

We use a word today, a great word, a word that didn’t exist back in the day, especially in the way we use it now. That word? Hater. Yeah, a hater is someone who is often contrary not only to you and what you’re about but more often than not, chronically grumpy about the world. […]

Yoga is Art

Yoga is Art

What is the marriage between inner and outer beauty? Yoga is many things. It’s a science, a philosophy, a mode of spirituality, and a method of therapy to name a few.

Yoga: The Practice of Being at The Crossroads

Yoga: The Practice of Being at The Crossroads

The crossroads is a magical place. It’s the place where the ethereal, spiritual, and philosophical meets the physical, real, and practical. Where these two roads intersect is the holy ground of transformation, it’s the place where we have to drop our one-track thinking and see the many roads. Practicing yoga means to be at the […]

Know When to Fold ‘Em: The Practice of Letting Go

Know When to Fold ‘Em: The Practice of Letting Go

I’m struck by the wisdom of Kenny Rogers when he croons,  “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em . . . ” (lyrics are actually by Don Schlitz). He’s pointing to the fact that you need to know when to let things go and when to keep them alive. […]

Tibetan Caves Are Overrated

I sit on my green cushion resting on my yellow rug that covers the honey-wood floor in the front room of my rented space, and close my eyes to meditate.  A single thread of incense smoke, sweet and pervasive, rises as if pulled heavenward by some unseen force, like a wispy prayer into the ether.  […]

What if You Could Turn On Your Magic?

Once, Laurence Olivier, the master of masters, perhaps one if not THE best play-actors of our time had just delivered his finishing lines of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
