My goals are kind of big and maybe crazy.

I want to help create a world where people are taught from the beginning (though children already know) how to be positively creative, and how valuable that is! I want to help people recognize their creative power, so they can use it to better the world and create better lives for themselves and their loved ones...

Amen, sister!   I believe that one of the major factors (and of course there are others) behind human conflict,  between ourselves and our environment,  is denial and repression of our true selves. If we all were allowed that actual freedom,  the world would be the Garden of Eden.  Unfortunately,  too many emotionally and intellectually immature people have a lot invested in the current "Babylon System" and have the firepower to keep it in tact.  For now...

Your goals sound great.  And you're helping me just by writing about this, and so encouraging me to think about it.

Who we connect with, and how, is one of the biggest factors in our happiness and success. People are everything.

Many creators focus mostly on making great work and pay little attention to making connections, or what can be called networking. We are often too introverted or anxious or awkward to even know how to begin; so we focus on our work and hope that...

Excellent.  Thanks for sharing.

Hello to all the new followers, and thanks for all the love on my front page set by @dwam !

It's been an intense time since I last posted! I wrote some books in the summer and got a book deal with an amazing publisher. The first one comes out in 2016. I installed a huge photo commission of 11 huge prints on aluminum that...

The highest form of love is compassion, which is the recognition of the intrinsic value and connection of us all. It is unconditional, it needs nothing, it is perfectly complete on its own. There can be no true compassion without self-compassion first, however. If you separate yourself from the compassion you give to the rest of existence you are buying into the illusion of separation...

Any insight on how to maintain compassion when faced with other aspects of the oneness that inspire loathing (Humans who perpetrate barbarism and multiplication of suffering, or just in-laws in general)? I find that the best I am capable of is really thinly veiled pity.

Congrats on the new set!

Being your true, happy, amazing self is easy and natural once you let go of what is holding you back. All you need to do is let go of what is not you. This process is simple but powerful.

First, recognize that what is negative is not you. These are things imposed on you by society, family, school, etc. Products of fear and pain. They...

How much fear do you hold? How much does it weigh? Take an honest look. How big is your fear, and how much of your life is dictated by it? This amount may be immense, but this is the immensity of your potential for transformation. This is the amount of amazing positive change you have been given the opportunity to create, in yourself and the...
