MY PERMANENT DANCE WITH LIFE (A BETTER ME)?

I thought to myself leave things be, let him own up to part in this whole thing, I was never so wrong in my life! If I had been ‘myself’ I could have killed this whole situation, made him understand where I stood, what my ‘true’ feelings were. I wanted to tell him about the…

A YEAR…DAY

Damn talk about time not standing still…A year and a day ago, I remembered so well; the day I made the decision that affected my entire existence on this planet. I never would have thought that this one moment, this one action would bring tears to eyes, pain in my heart and me to my…

DROPPED INTO STILL WATERS…THE RIPPLE EFFECT

In a world of six billion people, it’s easy to believe that the only way to initiate profound transformation is to take extreme action. Each of us, however, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives,…

SIX DEGREES OF HOMOSEXUALITY

My friends and I were having a discussion that prompted my theory of ‘SIX DEGREES OF HOMOSEXUALITY.’ We were all sitting on the bed just talking, and for some reason we started talking about guys, not realizing that we all knew one guy in particular. However, a certain guy by the name of Dominique stood…

THE MIRRORING WORLD

We are like nature; nature is a mirror, inspiring and teaching us, deepening our sense of belonging in the world. Wherever you look, you can see that our patterns and the patterns of the natural world are the same. You can find this resonance in every form, from molecules to plants and animals and to…

WORKING WAY…BEING HAPPY WITH YOUR JOB

In our search to define ourselves, we often look to our job to show us our worth. Society does not judge all professions equally, however, and it is not uncommon for the individuals who hold what others may consider to be ordinary or menial jobs to feel that they themselves are ordinary or menial.

OPENING TO FEEL…THE WAYS WE NUMB OURSELVES

We are born equipped to experience a complex array of diverse emotions. Many of us, however, are uncomfortable confronting our most powerful emotions.

SEASONS OF BEAUTY…AGING GRACEFULLY

We tend to associate youth with beauty, but the truth is that beauty transcends every age. Just as a deciduous tree is stunning in all its stages-from its full leafy green in the summer to its naked skeleton during winter and everything in between-human beings are beautiful throughout their life spans. The early years of…

LETTING GO OF PERFECTION

It is good to remember that one of our goals in life is to not be perfect. We often lose track of this aspiration. When we make mistakes, we think that we are failing or not measuring up. But if life is about experimenting, experiencing, and learning, then to be imperfect is a prerequisite. Life…

Dear God: if GAY means happy, why are WE so sad?

Is it the illusion of’ The Life?’ living an existence that is impaired to society. I am not my gender or my sexual orientation. However, I recognize “this illusion for what it is. I see us as people behave in ways that quite possibly go against our TRUTH! Whether we are at the sex party,…

THE FORBIDDEN

On the verge of adulthood, no longer a child, not quite a man; his presence on this planet has been like a drop of water in an ocean of time. Though he isn’t grown in many ways, and he has put away his childhood toys we have eaten the fruit of knowledge, erased the line…
