June 2018 – I could not lie anymore (and the remix)

The wee Luckster has actually always known his true nature, while I, on the other hand, have needed help.  Read on. I could not lie anymore so I started to call my dog “God.” First he looked confused, then he started smiling, then he even danced. I kept at it: now he doesn’t even bite. [...]

June 2016 ~ I Laugh When I Hear That The Fish In The Water Is Thirsty

I laugh when I hear that the fish in the water is thirsty. You don't grasp the fact that what is most alive of all is inside your own house; and so you walk from one holy city to the next with a confused look! Kabir will tell you the truth: go wherever you like, [...]

June 2015 ~ Questions About Angels

Of all the questions you might want to ask about angels, the only one you ever hear is how many can dance on the head of a pin. No curiosity about how they pass the eternal time besides circling the Throne chanting in Latin or delivering a crust of bread to a hermit on earth [...]

August 2012 ~ Winnie the Pooh

it was really a strange choice you made this morning to go with just a t-shirt and no pants. There are not many of us who can pull that kind of thing off. There are not many of us who are bold enough to just let it all hang out in the breeze, like you, [...]

November 2011 ~ I no longer believe in the idea of magic

I no longer believe in the idea of magic, Christs, the self, metal buddhas, bibles. A horse is only the space his horseness requires. If I pissed in the woods would a tree see my ear Fall off and would the ear return to the body On the morning of the third day? Do bo [...]
