The exploration is the thing.

‘Azure.  All told a year of water.

Some places with no bottom.

I had hoped to understand it

But it wasn’t possible.  Fish.’

Jim Harrison, Songs of Unreason (2011)

peripatetic existence~

leaf on water

Don’t be attached to how you think your life should be.

Be like the peripatetic traveler who is open to new things.

stop trying~

Controlling anything is not possible.

Trying to control existence is like telling the ocean what to do.

It doesn’t work.

always and forever~


As we live this human experience let’s recognize that we’re here to empower ourselves.

There are a million ways to reduce and contract our existence.

But we can choose to be in this world and ~whatever circumstance arises~ we can choose to move through it by being connected to our source.

It’s about more than faith.  It’s about knowing who you are and knowing that in each moment we have a choice.  Not only that, but the knowing that we are, in fact, the energy of choice.

Give it all up.


Do you want to explore the nature of reality and existence?

~Then give up what you think it’s all about~

Do you wish to connect with what is sacred?

~Then give up your holy texts~

Do you want to know what love truly is?

~Then give up your definitions of love~

Do you wish to connect with your essence?

~Then let go of who and what you think you are~

And so it begins.

No one ever said this journey was going to be easy but it’s the best ride around.

And it’s infinitely worth it.

How far are you willing to open yourself?~


You will reach a point on your journey when all the



and self-imposed limits

you exist by will become frustrating and boring.

And it is then you will start to let go of who and what you think you are.

You will let go of what you think your life is and should be.

And it is here you will open to realize

what love truly is.

Shopping today at a vintage store I found a beautifully framed picture of a series of doors from the U.A.E..  Arab design and architecture is mystical and minimal and speaks volumes and ignites the imagination.  I love it.

And aren’t doorways something wonderful?

You can step through them and there is always the possibility of something new on the other side.   Or something more.  Or a continuation of the exploration.

We go through many doorways in our lives.  And some doors we do not go through.  Some doorways are hidden because they are within. 

And until you see or come to know these doorways you cannot step through them.
